The BeReal app is an attempt to add some authenticity to social media by having users post unfiltered pictures of themselves once a day. However, even though it goes against the app’s message, many users want to know how to delete a BeReal. It is a great way to get rid of posts you don't like.

Deleting posts might not match the spirit of the app but some people can’t help themselves. Sometimes, we take a picture and don’t realize that something unflattering is in the image. Reasons like that are why certain users want to delete their posts, even if it makes them a little less honest.

So, for those that are willing to go against the grain or simply want to fix their mistakes, here’s what we know about how to delete a BeReal post on the social media app.

Can you delete a BeReal?

Yes, you can delete a post on BeReal. Even though the company wants people to share honest pictures of themselves, the app offers fairly easy ways to delete their posts. It’s fairly amusing to see this option in an app about authenticity but that’s what people want.

However, those that don’t like their BeReal and want to see it erased from the app have another easy option. Simply find the post that you aren’t proud of, tap the three dots (...), and wait for the pop-up window to appear. Once the window is open, simply scroll down and find the “Delete my BeReal” option.

How to make a great BeReal post

A great way to make some good looking BeReal posts is to take advantage of your best angles. Practice before going live on the app, take some selfies and find out which angle you look best. Don't go overboard on make-up or filters, try and look natural.

If you don't like how you look, luckily there is a two-minute period to take different photos and post them. You are definitely allowed to delete their first take and get ready for another within the time period. It is not a great way to be 100% honest on an app which is all about honesty, but no one needs to know.
