Does Medium Allow Authors To (Batch-)Delete Their Posts?

  • 2 min read

It depends

I don’t know why, but I got asked this on Quora and my answer received already several upvotes.

So here’s the question we’re gonna talk about:

Does Medium allow authors to delete their posts?

Here’s my short answer:

Yes, you can delete your story.

Keep in mind: Once you’ve done that you shouldn’t republish it on Medium. This would mean duplicate content. You could get banned for this.

To delete a post, simply click on the three-dot menu on the right side and click “Delete story”:

The deletion is permanent, and your post will be removed in accordance with Medium’s Privacy Policy.

One more thing:

You can’t batch-delete all of your posts without deleting your account!

You would need to delete each of your stories manually.
