Meetup is an online service for creating groups that host local in-person events, with over 35 million users worldwide. However, if you are fed up with Meetup and want to switch to alternatives like Bylde, GroupSpaces, or others, you might want to close your account.
Deleting a Meetup account is quick and easy, but Meetup labels this procedure as permanent account deactivation.

- Choose Settings from the dropdown menu.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Deactivate your account.
