So, after playing Scrabble GO for a while, you’ve decided that it’s not for you. That’s okay. It’s not for everyone. However, simply uninstalling the app from your phone is not enough. Your account and all its data still exist. From their perspective, your account is simply inactive. Follow these steps to delete your Scrabble GO account for good. It’s actually quite easy.

Disconnect Scrabble GO From Facebook

As we discussed in our article outlining easy instructions for Scrabble GO, the easiest way to start a game with friends is to sign in using Facebook. If you took this option, you’ll then need to disconnect your Scrabble GO profile from your Facebook profile if you want to delete your Scrabble GO account.

In the Scrabble GO App

To disconnect your Facebook account from your Scrabble GO account:

  3. Tap on the gear icon in the top-right corner. This will open your profile settings.

  4. Tap on the Facebook icon in the middle.

  5. Choose to disconnect.

Scopely, the publisher of Scrabble GO, reminds users that any information you’ve already shared, like your name and profile photo, will not be removed automatically from your Scrabble GO profile. This data will remain until you change it or you ask Scopely to delete it.

  8. Confirm by tapping the “Remove” button on the next screen.

You can also review your “apps and websites” login settings on the Facebook website. The process for removing Scrabble GO from your active Facebook logins is similar.
