When it comes to deleting an unwanted group, the process depends on the platform you are using.
If it’s Facebook, there will be an option for you to delete the group. Start by going to the group you want to delete, then click on three dots icon to the right of your cover photo. You should see a pop-up menu with some options, choose delete group.
You will then be prompted to confirm the action. Finally, click delete group to complete the process.
If you are using an online forum platform such as Discourse, scroll to the bottom of the forum’s page. Look for the Administration link at the bottom of the page and select it. This will bring you to an administration page where you can access group settings and delete it by clicking the delete option.
Lastly, if you are using Slack, you can either archive or delete your group, start by going to the group in question and pressing the gear icon at the top of the page. Select manage group and then click delete group on the following page.
Confirm the deletion and your group will be gone for good.
Regardless of the platform, deleting an unwanted group is relatively simple, though the exact steps may vary from platform to platform.
How do you permanently Delete a group?
To permanently delete a group, first make sure that all group members have left the group and that all group activities are complete. Once the group is empty, navigate to the group page. You will see an ‘edit’ or ‘manage’ option on the top right-hand side.
Click on the ‘edit’ or ‘manage’ option, and select the ‘delete group’ option. Re-enter the name of the group that you are deleting, and follow the prompts to permanently delete the group. Depending on the platform you are using, there may be an ‘archive’ option rather than delete; archiving the group will prevent other users from joining, but you will still have access to the old posts and members.
How can I Delete a group from my phone?
Deleting a group from your phone can be a simple process depending on the type of device and the type of group you are looking to delete.
If the group you are trying to delete is an app-specific group, then the process will be different from deleting a contact or messaging group.
For most app-specific groups, you will simply need to open the group and then look for a delete or leave button. If you don’t see an option to delete or leave the group, then the group may be owned by someone else and thus can’t be deleted by you.
To delete a contact or messaging group, open the group and then locate the delete icon. For iOS devices and most Android devices, the delete icon will be an ‘x’ or a trash can icon. Click on the delete icon and then confirm that you would indeed like to delete the group.
It is also important to consider that deleting a group from your phone may not delete it from the participating members’ phones. Each member will need to delete the group from their individual device as well.
In summary, the process for deleting a group from your phone will vary depending on the type of group you are looking to delete. App-specific groups will often have a delete or leave button, whereas other contact and messaging groups can be deleted by accessing the delete icon.
Note that deleting the group from your phone will not remove it from the phones of the other members, thus each member will need to delete the group from their device as well.

If you want to get rid of a group contact on your iPhone, you have a few options.
You can delete the whole group contact at once from the Contacts app. Simply tap the group contact, then tap Edit in the upper-right corner. Scroll down, then tap Delete Group. This will remove the whole group contact from your Contacts list.

This will delete the whole group contact from your Contacts list.
Does deleting a group delete it for everyone?
No, deleting a group does not delete it for everyone. When a group is deleted, only the creator of the group has the power to delete the group. Anyone else in the group won’t be able to delete it, but they will be removed from the group.
If the creator of the group deletes it, then it will be removed from the group lists and timelines of all members, and all members will lose access to posts and files within the group. It’s important to note that deleting a group is permanent and the content inside the group cannot be recovered, so it should be done with caution.
How do I eliminate group text?
If you want to eliminate a group text, the most reliable way to do this is to ask the group members to leave the group chat. When someone leaves the group, they can no longer receive messages from the group and they won’t automatically be added back.
If you’re the one who created the group, however, it’s best to delete the group altogether. To do this, you need to go to the conversation page for the group and look for an option to delete the conversation.
This will remove the conversation and any associated messages, and everyone in the group will no longer be able to participate. Depending on the messaging app you use, you may have the option to archive the conversation instead of deleting it, which will mean that everyone in the conversation can refer to it at a later date if needs be.
Why I cant Delete chat for everyone?
Unfortunately, if you are unable to delete a chat for everyone, it means that the message has already been read by the recipient or has expired after 24 hours. According to WhatsApp, messages or media sent on WhatsApp can only be deleted before the recipient has read them; once they have been read, the message or media file can no longer be deleted.
Furthermore, this applies to both regular and group messages.
So if you are unable to delete a chat for everyone, it could be because either the recipient has already read the message or the message has expired after 24 hours. You can also check to see if the recipient has read your message by checking for the double blue tick that appears next to your message.
