While BeReal’s idea of posting whatever you’re doing at a random time during the day for your friends to see does sound fun, there are certain shortcomings with the app that might leave you with less-than-ideal BeReal posts sometimes. 

For example, the camera doesn’t show you a preview of yourself when shooting, not giving the user an idea of what they’re shooting. This can lead to bad photos; sometimes, you just might want to delete a post from the app. 

In this article, we’re talking about how to delete posts on BeReal, and the limitations of doing so.

Deleting BeReal posts

A word before you start deleting your posts on the app, keep in mind that you can only delete one post per day. The app will remind you of this before deleting the current post. It’ll also ask you why exactly you want to delete the post before asking for one final confirmation. 

All this is done to deter people from deleting their BeReals because the whole premise of the app is to just show your life the way you’re living it at any given time during the day. This does mean that there will be imperfect posts from time to time, and users will sometimes just have to be content with them. 

Regardless, if you want to delete your posts, here’s how. 

How to delete BeReal posts on Android?

Deleting the posts works slightly differently between the Android and iOS apps. Here’s how to delete them on Android. 

  • Tap the three vertical dots in the top-right of your post. 
  • Select Delete my BeReal.
  • Select the reason why you’re deleting your post and tap the Delete my BeReal button. 

How to delete BeReal posts on iOS?
