Reddit provides you the option to “deactivate” your account, this is permanent. After you deactivate/delete, your profile will be permanently removed from Reddit. Your username will vanish from Reddit.

However, any Reddit posts or comments you’ve posted will remain on the site. They won’t have your username associated with them anymore. As per Reddit, they become “unattributed,” and no one can know who posted them. Even the messages you sent will become unattributed.

Until and unless you have posted something containing personal information, there is practically no need to delete any comments or posts, as they will be unattributed.
