IMVU is an online community where people create their own customized 3D avatars and enjoy spending time with friends online. With over six million subscribers, and with the largest virtual goods catalog, there is plenty of fun to be had on the platform. You can create, sell, and buy goods, set up games, and chatrooms, and did we mention the custom avatars?
However, if you like many of us have found yourself spending more time online and less time on things that are important to you, you may want to take a break. Just promising yourself you won’t be spending as much time online may not work and you may want to disable or delete some of your social and games accounts to help you stay accountable.
Luckily the easiest and official way to deactivate your IMVU account is not permanent unless you want it to be. To disable your account, follow these simple steps:
- Log into IMVU – Click here to go straight to the delete page
- Enter your account password when prompted
- Then select continue
- Once your account is deleted a success page will appear informing you of this
You should make sure that the email address attached to your account is active and that you have access to it. Upon deleting your account, you will receive an email from IMVU with a reactivation link. You should save this if you’d like to reactivate your account in the future.
If you cannot find this e-mail but still wish to reactivate your account, you can do this by opening a support ticket in the help center at IMVU and stating your account name, e-mail, and few other details about the account you wish to restore.
Note that IMVU may delete your account permanently without letting you know if it remains in an inactive state for a long time. They will not delete your account permanently if you do not go through the deletion process but simply stop using it.
If you want the company to delete your data immediately, the best way to achieve this is to send them an email. You can access their e-mail address on the website. You can also just e-mail to delete your account although the method above is easier in our opinion. Note that the email method only works for newer accounts 2-3 years.
IMVU also has a telephone customer support line you can call to delete your account. This is listed on their website under Help and Support. Some people may prefer this option as it is instant, and you benefit from the human touch while others may prefer the options we presented previously.
