How To Delete All Reddit Comments in 2024

Reddit is a website where you will be sure to find a group of people with interests, hobbies, and passions similar to yours, with an opportunity to talk about just that.

Whether it is food, sports, movies, celebrity gossip, memes, news, professions, academics, travel, or a seemingly ‘stupid’ question, Reddit has a community for it.

As such, it is easy to end up sharing uncalled-for opinions, say some unflattering things, or get caught up in a heated discussion through the comment section, which may lead you to wonder how you can delete all your Reddit comments.

You can delete all Reddit comments using;

  • Redact App
  • Bulk Delete Reddit Posts and Comments History extension
  • Reddit Enhancement Suite
  • A script
  • Or you can delete one by one comment on the Reddit App

Why delete all your Reddit comments

Different people have their reasons for wanting to erase one or all of their Reddit comments such as; 

  • Want to leave the Reddit platform and don’t want to leave a footprint
  • Change in opinion
  • The post that started as a joke got out of hand
  • Just want a clean slate+

Whatever the reason is, the method you decide to use will depend on how many comments you have, the platform you are using; App, mobile, or desktop browser, and how much time you have.

5 Ways to delete all Reddit comments

The following are the ways through which you can erase all your comments from Reddit;

If you have a few comments, then it is best to use this method as it is pretty straightforward and it works for both the App and website versions of Reddit.
