1. First of all, make sure you are logged in from your Google Account, otherwise it won’t work and gives you an error like this: “This isn’t a WeChat account”.

2. Open Settings app > Privacy > Analytics & Data Management > Share usage information > WeChat > Delete account (see the screenshot above). For non-iPhone users, I guess you have to find “Delete WeChat information” in the app directly, I haven’t tested that.

3. After clicking this button, a sign-in pop-up will appear (screen on right picture) or a QR code page will open (screen on left picture). Both ways are to help you log out your account with Google Account Sync or using QR codes respectively. Please choose one of them firstly, then click on “Logout”.

4. Then enter your wechat password and the verification code you receive from login process after login again. If everything goes well, you should see something like the next screen shot showing up:

5. You may check if it really worked by going to http://m.weixin.qq.com/my/, typing in your username and password to login, then clicking on the button which says “Account”. And there you should see that your account has been deleted successfuly!
