Remove a Status profile from your profile list

If you don't want a profile to show up on your device, you can remove it.


A profile removed from your device is not deleted. Check out Delete your Status profile.

What to expect

  • When you remove a profile from one device, the associated data is deleted from that device. To delete the data from all devices, repeat the procedure on all devices where you use the profile.
  • If you don't log into your Status profile for 30 days or more (on any device), your crypto funds are safe, but your profile is irrecoverably lost. You can always create another Status profile using your recovery phrase
