How to delete your Bitmoji avatar on Snapchat

Whether you're looking to start fresh with a new avatar or simply prefer not to have one, the steps outlined here will help you achieve your goal effectively.

To delete your Bitmoji avatar on Snapchat:

  • Tap on your Bitmoji in the top-left corner
  • Tap the gear icon in the top-right corner
  • Tap "Bitmoji"
  • Select "Remove My Bitmoji"
  • Tap "Remove" to confirm your action

Keep in mind that if you created your avatar on Snapchat rather than the Bitmoji app, you will permanently lose your avatar and all fashion items saved in My Wardrobe. Therefore, it's important to consider this before proceeding.

How to re-create your avatar from scratch

When you delete your Bitmoji, your avatar or profile image will revert to a colour-filled outline of a male or female silhouette set against a grey background, which might be visually unappealing.

If you're looking to recreate your avatar after deletion, here are the steps you should follow:

  • Tap on your Bitmoji in the top-left corner
  • Tap "Create My Avatar"
  • Select your gender
  • Position your face centrally and pick from the avatars generated by the app
  • Customize the avatar's body, features, and outfit to suit your preference
  • Save your newly created avatar once you're satisfied with the design
