How To Recover Deleted Quora Account?

Quora is one of the biggest crowd-based question-and-answer platforms on the internet. It allows users to ask any question they must have and people who know the answer write about it. It’s quite addictive as well as informational.

The best part is it’s free, anyone can create an account on Quora without any credit card. Most people know how to create an account on Quora but they don’t know what to do if they lose their Quora account.

In this article, I will tell you how to recover deleted Quora account but before that let’s see what happens when you delete a Quora account.

What Happens When You Delete A Quora Account?

When a Quora account is permanently deleted all the details including the answers, messages, upvotes, and profile pictures associated with that particular account are also deleted. The questions which you have asked on the platform will remain but they won’t be associated with any account.

Quora Account Delete Vs Deactivate

Quora provides you two options either delete your account or deactivate your account. The difference between both is that when you press the delete button your account gets deleted permanently.

In the case of deactivation, your account is not deleted but it is put on halt. This means your account will not receive any new messages or notifications. Other people will see a deactivated word written on your profile.

How To Reactivate Quora Account?

Recovering a deactivated Quora account is very easy. All you have to do is just log into your account using the same email and password and your account will be reactivated.

Once your account is reactivated you can use it as usual without losing your answers, followers, and other details.

How To Recover Deleted Quora Account?

If you have opted for deleting your Quora account instead of deactivating it then you will have a 14-day window until your account is permanently deleted.

To recover a deleted Quora account all you have to do is log into your account within two weeks’ time and your account will be recovered easily.

However, if you miss the 14 days’ time then the account will be permanently deleted and there’s hardly anything you could do. So it means it’s possible to recover a recently deleted Quora account but not an old deleted account.

Can You Recover A Permanently Deleted Quora Account?

As I told you already, you cannot recover Quora account once it is deleted. For the same reason, Quora offers you a deactivation option so that you don’t have to delete your account in the first place.

Once your account gets deleted, all details about it are removed from the Quora server and hence it becomes non-recoverable.

If your account was deleted without your permission then you can try to contact customer support of Quora, they might help you with something. But the chances of account recovery are very less.

In case you have lost your account because you have forgotten your password then you can restore your Quora account by resetting the password. Here’s how you can do that.

How To Recover Quora Account If You Have Forgotten The Password?

The steps to recover a Quora account if you have forgotten the password are very simple. Just follow the process mentioned below and you will be able to successfully reset your Quora password.

  • On the Quora login page, click on Forgot Password option.

Final Verdict

It’s sad but recovering a permanently deleted Quora account is impossible. But that should not stop you from using this awesome question-and-answer-based platform. You can always start from scratch. If you have a Quora account with lots of answers and followers then I would recommend you never delete your account. If you don’t feel like using Quora anymore you can deactivate the account so that you can always come back and start from where you left off.
