Delete My Account

This extension will add a new UCP tab that allows users to delete their own account.


You can download this extension, from the phpBB3 extension database.


The Delete My Account extension does the following:-

  • adds a Delete My Account tab to the UCP
  • uses a two-step deletion process with double checks and password confirmation
  • adds a permission to allow users to also delete their posts (this defaults to off) – when a third check-box appears on the UCP page
  • prevents Founders from deleting themselves
  • assigns any posts to the guest user with the name Deleted User plus the users old ID (e.g. Deleted User 342)
  • logs the deletion in the user log
  • uses the standard in-built user deletion process
