And we’ll show you how. We’ll explain what you need to know about deleting BeReal posts, then walk you through how to properly delete a BeReal post step-by-step.

  • You can still delete the replay, but you are not allowed to post another BeReal post until you receive the push notification for the next daily post.
  • Deleting a BeReal post doesn’t just delete it from the feed. It will also be removed from your Reminders section.
