What will happen when you have deleted the account?
As per Quora, once you have pressed the delete button, Quora will remove your account from the public view. But to completely delete the account, you will have to wait for 14 days.
However, if you choose to deactivate the account, it will happen immediately. Deactivating will ensure that you do not get any emails from Quora and the users will not be able to interact with you.
As mentioned above, Quora retains your data for two weeks after you’ve requested to delete the account; so, you can sign in to your account any time before the 14 days to reactivate your account.
