I joined up with Google+ and am finding it's not to my tastes and I don't find it useful.

How the heck do I leave Google Plus?

I cannot find an opt-out link for the life of me. It bothers me that I now have a social network bound to my "Google" identity.

Anyone know how I can leave Google+? Or where I can delete my G+ profile?


You might be able to go to the Account Management page then scroll down to "My Products" click edit. There might be something along the lines of "Remove Google+"

EDIT: Perhaps you should have done a google search. I just did it and I found this link. Clearly written instructions on how to delete Google+.

Step 1: Click on Settings icon on the top right of the Google Plus screen when you are logged in and click on Google+ Settings

Step 1 - Removing Google+

Step 2: Click on the Account Overview Link in the left pane and the click on the link towards the bottom of this page which says Delete profile and social features – Delete Profile and associated social features

Step 2 - Removing Google+

Step 3: On next screen, select the option which says Delete Google+ Content IMPORTANT. Then click the check box at the bottom of the page which says I understand that deleting the service can’t be undone and data I delete can’t be restored.. Then click the button which says Remove Selected Services. This is it.

Step 3 - Removing google+

  • Unfortunately, this no longer works as the account management page has changed.

Google's Account Management page has changed recently.

To delete your Google+ profile:

  1. Go to the My Account tool
  2. Under "Account preferences", click "Delete your account or services"
  3. Click "Delete products"
    • as a security measure, you'll be re-prompted for your password
  4. There are currently three services you can remove from your account individually: Google+, YouTube, and Gmail; to remove your Google+ profile, click the trashcan icon next to Google+ and follow the directions
