How to delete a Deviantart account?

If you want to close a Deviantart account, the solution is hard to find.

The reason: You’ll need a special removal page to do it and it takes up to 8(!) clicks to close it. We will show you below how we deleted our Deviantart account on a desktop computer:

 1  Open the special deactivation page

by going to https://www.deviantart.com/settings/deactivation.
