How to Delete a Flickr Account?

If you no longer use your Flickr account, you got to choose one option from the two. You can either delete your Flickr  Account permanently or you can temporarily deactivate your Flickr account with the help of Flickr parent site which is Yahoo. Deleting your Flickr account is useful if you want a fresh start for your Flickr profile. Keep in mind that when you delete either your Flickr or Yahoo account, you’ll also be deleting your login information and would have to re-register in order to begin again with Flickr. Let’s check How to Delete a Flickr Account?

How to Delete a Flickr Account?

  • Open the Flickr App on one of your devices.
  • Log in to your Flickr account using your Yahoo username and password
  • Deleting your Flickr account will remove all your uploaded photos and your account settings while preserving your Yahoo account.
  • Also, if you have a Flickr Pro subscription, you’ll first need to cancel your subscription to avoid accidental charges.
  • Click on “You” which is mentioned in the left corner, this will take you to a homepage”
  • Then click on “Camera Roll”, this will help you open your account
  • Download any photos you want to keep. Do this by selecting the desired photos, then click “Download” in the menu at the bottom of your screen. When you delete your Flickr, your photos will also be deleted.
  • You can also click “Select All” next to the photos’ date of origin to select multiple photos for download.
  • Delete the photos which you wish to so that Google doesn’t archive your Flickr images.
  • Although deleting your Flickr also deletes your photos, Google sometimes saves and displays screenshots of deleted pages. Deleting your photos before closing your account means your photos won’t appear in the archived screenshot.
  • Once you are done with it, click on “settings”
  • Then scroll down to “Your Flickr Account” selection.
  • You will get an option at the end of the page that says “Delete your Flickr Account”
  • Click on it, and it will ask you to enter the Flickr password
  • Once you enter your Flickr password, click on next.
  • Then click on “Yes, I fully understand”
  • You will have to confirm your account deletion on the next page
  • Then click on “Delete my account”
  • Your account is now gone forever.
  • To confirm that this process has worked, enter your account credentials and try to sign in.
  • Your login credentials should no longer work after your Flickr account deletion.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
Gavin Whitham testimonialGavin Whithamflickr
PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
 Jim Griffin testimonialJim Griffinsmugmug
It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
Robert testimonialRobertonedrive
I started with the basic plan, went to premium and now on their platinum plan and it's more than worth the price for me. PicBackMan has saved me many tedious hours of effort moving many files between my various cloud and photo site services and my local computers.

I am very satisfied and surprised at the same time with Pic BackMan. The service is very good and useful. I used it to transfer my photos from Dropbox to my Flickr accound. I highly recomment it.
Dave testimonialDavesmugmug
PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant.
Barry Graham testimonialBarry Grahamflickr
Great tool for enduring your photos are always safely backed up. I backed up tens of thousands of photos and dozens of videos to Flickr in my 1st couple of months using PicBackMan. Would unreservedly recommend as it works seamlessly and copies your photos to Flickr in sets which reflect your folders.
Achal Gupta testimonialAchal Guptaflickr
This is a fantastic piece of software! I wanted to backup 100+ gigs worth of original sized photos to Flickr and after trying many many tools, PickBacMan was the one that finally worked. It worked flawlessly for 10 straight days uploading all my photos without a single error/ timeout/ crash. Absolutely amazing! I didn't try the other premium features but the ability to replicate stuff across multiple...
