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.

Each day, everyone is simultaneously notified to take and share a photo of their current activity within 2 minutes.

The beauty of the app is that no one knows what time is BeReal today or on any given day. Because of that people can't stage or curate their BeReal, revealing to us their most authentic, in-the-moment self.

Apparently, many users are struggling to figure out how to delete a BeReal photo. So, we decided to write a quick guide to help you do this.

Since the app prompts you to capture and share a photo at a random time, you have no opportunity to stage your photo to make sure the image is as perfect as possible. Well, the whole point of the app is to be real and post your most authentic, in-the-moment self.
