Does anyone know how to delete a Tapatalk account?

I keep getting emails that "such-and-such is following you on Tapatalk." These are people I don't know, and I'm fairly certain are just internet bots or scammers.

First of all, I haven't used Tapatalk in many years. So I went to their website, but I don't see any way to delete an account.

For those of you who use it, or maybe I should say those of you who no longer use it, do you have any insight on how to permanently get rid of this thing?

I don't but perhaps you can turn off notifications so the emails stop.

I don’t either. Report the emails as spam and block them.

Are you on Windows or Mac?

If Windows, select Start>Control Panel>Programs. Under Programs and Features, click on Uninstall a program. Follow the instructions at the top of the page.

Tapatalk is a phone app.

If I had half a mind I'd march right down there and give them a piece of it..

The app has long been uninstalled on my phone, and I could easily just block the email notifications. But my preference would be to delete the account completely and permanently, so that I'm no longer "followable". The truth is I don't like having my data just sort of hanging around in the databases of companies that I don't use.
