To check an account is closed
If you’d like to double-check that your account has been closed:
- Type in https://www.wattpad.com/user/yourusername replacing 'yourusername' with the username of the account that you just closed.
- If you've closed your account, then you should get a 'User not found' page.
Do not sign into your account again; this will reopen your account through self-restoration: Reopen Account.
If you have further questions or concerns, please let us know.
