Is it possible to delete your Vorail account

iOS and iPadOS

Hi there, there is an app called Vorail and I was wondering if there was a way to delete a Vorail account?

There's no way to delete the actual account. The only thing you could do is make another account or delete the ap it self.

Actually, you cannot just delete the app and then reinstall it to create a new account. The account is tied directly to your Apple ID. There is no way to delete accounts that I know of either. My advice is to just not log in and to also remove the app from your phone if you no longer wish to use it. Your account will fade in to obscurity and will eventually be forgotten by users of the app.


But isn't this app supposed to be a social media app? You can delete a Facebook and twitter and instagram account, why isn't Vorail the same thing? So basically what you're trying to say if it's tied to your apple id, you'd pretty much have to delete the entire icloud ID?

In this case, I suppose so. But what's the issue with just leaving the account dormant? If you never use it, and it's no longer on your device, that's about the same as deleting it. If it's an issue with content you have posted, well, anything you post online is potentially there forever. People who live to regret posting Youtube videos, for example, delete them, but someone else can come along and reupload it if they have recorded the video. The same is true of VoRail. Being on the grid is much like the Hotel California: you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave...

That's what I meant. you could delete the entire ap but your account stays forever. You could never leave the account but you could delete the ap it self and never use it again. Your account will still be there for when ever you decide to use it again. If you want another account you will have to use another apple id.

I know, but being that this app is categorized under social media, and social media accounts are able to be deleted in the real world, such as Facebook and Twitter, why can't Vorail be the same? If you want your information deleted why can't you request to have it gone and it goes away, just like Facebook and Twitter

Ask Tom R about that. He is the only one who could give answers.

I was hoping there was a way to completely remove the account and app. Not that I have anything against the app, I’m just curious.
