How to Delete an IMVU Account

by Christina Hadley ; Updated September 28, 2017

IMVU, an avatar-based virtual world and social networking site, has competitors such as Second Life, Habbo and Nurien, according to VentureBeat. When you are leaving its 40 million registered users behind to play on a competing site, or, should new priorities arise, deleting a IMVU account is a fast process that takes minimal effort. Once you delete your account, you won't be able to recover it, so delete the account associated with an avatar that you want to abandon forever.

Log in to your IMVU account at imvu.com/login/login.

Navigate to the IMVU account deletion page at imvu.com/catalog/web_delete_account.php.

Verify that the avatar name on the page is correct and enter your IMVU password to delete the account. Click "Continue" and view the account deletion success page, which reads, "You have successfully deleted your account. A confirmation email has been sent. Thanks for trying IMVU!"

Uninstall the IMVU application from within your computer's "Control Panel." Choose the application in the "Add or Remove Programs" window and click "Remove" if you will not be using the application again.
