4chan is an online imageboard forum that allows its users to anonymously post pictures or comments on a variety of topics. Since 4chan is an anonymous forum, it does not require users to complete a registration form. 4chan users can, however, assign a password to each post they make. This allows them to delete the post if needed. Users who do not provide a password when posting a new message receive a cookie on their Web browser that stores an automatically generated password onto their computer. You can delete one of your posts on 4chan in just a few steps.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Launch your Web browser and visit the 4chan thread where you posted your message.

  2. 2

    Click on the check box at the top of your post and scroll down to the bottom of the Web page.

  3. 3

    Type your password in the box next to the "Delete" button. If you have not created a password when you posted your comment, 4chan will automatically read the cookie that contains the automatically-generated password and type the password for you in the box.

  4. 4

    Click on the "Delete" button.

Tips and warnings

  • You can also click on the "File Only" check box next to the "Delete" button to delete the picture you posted while keeping your original text comment intact.
