How to delete a Gravatar account?

Gravatar is a service for providing globally unique avatars online. But when you’re done using it, you might be considering to close your account. In that case: I can assure you that completely delete a Gravatar account is impossible, but what you can do is Hide your profile and remove your data so that it cannot be seen anymore.

I’ll show you below with pictures how I managed to remove my profile on a desktop computer:

 1  Go to and sign in to your account

 2  Go to My profile > View profile

(!) On the My profile page you can manually remove your data and personal details (e.g. delete your name or change it to Lorem Ipsul and remove your picture.
