I am under 13 years old and want to delete my account. Will I still be able to read all of what I have written? Can I remove everything from my library? Will these stories disappear from my app?

There is no way to delete your account, but there are settings in your device that allow you to stop Wattpad from using any of the information we collect from you. By turning off tracking in your device settings you will be able to continue reading all of what you have written without being tracked by us or anyone else. If you turn off the other settings that assist with loading content more quickly and also help to identify inappropriate content, then it is possible for those stories to disappear from your app because they may not be readily available for download on our servers anymore. However, everything will still remain completely anonymous through trash cans and searches as long as tracking is turned off on your devices. You can learn more about how this works here: https://www.wattpadstudios.com/privacy-policy/.
