How To Delete Your Gowalla Account

By: Jeremy Muncy - December 2, 2011

We recently told you about Facebook acquiring the location-based provider Gowalla.

Citing “a source close to Gowalla”, CNN Money learned that the company had been purchased Facebook for an undisclosed sum.

With that in mind, if you don’t want Facebook to have to opportunity of getting your personal data… you might want to delete your Gowalla account. Here’s how to do it:

Log into your Gowalla account. In the top right corner you’ll see your avatar, accompanied by the word “You“. Click on the down arrow, and then on “Settings“.

Gowalla Deletion - Step 1

Once the “Settings” screen has loaded you’ll find the “Delete Account” link in the lower left corner.

Gowalla Deletion - Step 2

Upon clicking the link, you’ll be taken to a screen asking you to enter your password twice, you can then click the “Delete Account” button.

You’re done. If you won’t want Facebook gaining access to your Gowalla check-in information, you might want to delete your account, just a friendly heads up.

Are you planning on deleting your Gowalla account? Tell us in the comment section below.

    Way to jump the gun before the news is confirmed by either company. Something tells me Gowalla and Facebook are both sensitive enough to privacy concerns that they will offer users some reasonable migration and opt-out tools. I’ll be keeping my rather extensive check-in history intact on for now. You?

      Just trying to give people a guide on how to delete their account if they so choose. As you know, many don’t trust Facebook, and cringe at the thought of Facebook even remotely having access to their information.

    Well, I for one do not welcome our Facebook overlords and appreciate the clear directions for deleting my Gowalla account.
