Technical Notes: May 20th, 2021
• Rate Limit: 60 per minute • Due to how Reddit stores posts/comments and makes them viewable, if you have thousands of messages we may not be able to find all of them. However, no one will find them on your profile either. • Download your data: https://www.reddit.com/settings/data-request
We currently support Reddit as a service for Redact. You can mass remove your messages in Reddit posts and comments; including text, images and videos.
Specify what keywords you want to be excluded in Redact's search. Enter your chosen keyword in the input field, and click the
Add button to add it. To remove a keyword, just click the
x that is inline with the keyword. To clear all keywords, click the
Clear All button. This is optional - if you don't enter anything here Redact will look for everything. If you do enter a subreddit, make sure to exclude the
AskReddit instead of
Reddit stores posts in comments in a weird way. If you’re trying to delete thousands at once, we may not be able to find all of them. Don't worry though, if we can’t see them, neither can anybody else!
Deletion can be specified by
Start Date (Only delete after this date) or
End Date (Only delete before this date). When you press the calendar icon, a calendar will appear. By default, it’ll take you to the current date, but you can easily change this. You can click the title at the top to select from a list of months, or click it twice to select from a list of nearby years. Alternatively, you could click the left and right arrows to skip around to adjacent months. When you have the correct month and year, you just click the day and you’re done. If you want to start over, just tap the Reset in red text.
Enter a phrase or group of words that Redact searches for in the body of the post or comment. If you’re looking for a specific word to delete in the body or comment this is where you specify it.
Delete according to the title. Input a word or phrase that Redact will search for in the post title. If you’re looking for a specific word to delete in the title of a post, this is where you place it.
Choose if you want to delete only link posts or text posts.
To delete anything and everything on your Reddit account, just skip the form, go straight to
Deletion Mode, and click
Start Deleting. Take note that content deletion is irreversible. This is recommended if you want to have a fresh Reddit account rather than making a new one.
