Wondering how to delete a BeReal photo? We've got you covered!

BeReal is the latest craze in social media. It is a photo-sharing application that asks users to post one unfiltered photo per day.

Every day at a different time, everyone is notified simultaneously to capture and share a photo within 2 minutes to show their followers what they are doing in real-time.
