Delete my Google+ profile

You’re in control of how you use your Google+ profile, and you can adjust access to or delete your account at any time. We’ll walk you through the options for restricting access to or deleting your account, and what each of them means for you.

Restrict who can see my Google+ posts and content

If you’d like to continue using Google+, but restrict who can view your content, you can adjust your profile visibility settings to hide everything except your name and photo from public view. Learn how to adjust your profile visibility settings.

What happens next:

  • Everything but your profile and photo will be hidden from public view.
  • The posts you've shared will still be accessible by the people you've shared with.
  • You'll still be able to access all of your Google+ posts, circles, and other content.
  • Events you've RSVP'd to will still reflect your RSVP.

Stop using Google products that make me sign in, like Google+ and Gmail

If you’d like to stop using Google services that require a Google Account, like Google+, Gmail, and many others, you can delete your Google Account. Learn how to delete your Google Account.
