How to Delete a Paltalk Account

Updated February 21, 2017

Paltalk users can use community chat rooms, leave video voice mails and use webcam chat rooms for free. You must be at least 18 years old to download the program, and no younger than 13 years old to use the program. Paltalk suggests enabling parental controls and restricting younger children from accessing the program. If you suspect someone has created an authorised user on your account it's relatively simple to delete an account on Paltalk.

Log into Paltalk as normal with your own user name and password.

View the list of "nicknames" on the pull-down menu to see if any new or unauthorised nicknames are present. Click the "down" arrow to see all nicknames associated with the account.

Delete unauthorised user names in the "Account Management" section. Select "File" and "Setup Preferences" to display a menu of the main pal list window, then select the account you wish to delete.

Click "Account Settings," and then the "Enable Nickname Security" button to prevent people from accessing your nickname on a different computer. Other people can't access the account without providing the answer to your secret question.
