How To Delete A BeReal When You Want A Do-Over

If you couldn’t tell by the name, the purpose of the BeReal app is to share unfiltered, real-time moments. But even if you really believe in posting, once you see the words “It’s Time To BeReal” on your screen, you might end up posting a little bit to real, and need to dismantle it as soon as possible. Luckily, removing a post is that easy – you just need to know where to look. Here’s what you should know about deleting a BeReal so you’re prepared when the time comes.

BeReal users know how important it is to take your BeReal within two minutes of receiving the random post notification every day. But if you snap a photo too quickly, you could end up posting a photo of something you shouldn’t have, like your best friend’s birthday present or that pile of dirty laundry you finally decided to take to the laundromat. It might be frowned upon, but it’s possible to delete a BeReal so even if you accidentally hit submit on your post, you can still get a replay. The best part is that you have one more chance to post on the day, which means you can pretend nothing happened.

Whether your BeReal could spoil a surprise or you’re looking to up your selfie game to impress your crush, here’s how to delete a BeReal after getting too involved with BeReal.
