How to delete a VKontakte public? Such a question can visit every community owner. There may be several reasons for this: the creation of a new public page, the unwillingness to deal with the current one, and so on. In this article, we will walk you through a few simple steps that will help you get rid of the annoying community forever. We note right away that a specialized program for the VKontakte public has not yet been developed, and all actions will have to be carried out manually.
In the social network in question, a function has not yet appeared that allows, using a single button or a series of actions, to permanently and irrevocably delete the community. Therefore, in order to erase your public page and make it inaccessible to other users, the creator will need to do a series of actions, after which the public page will be inaccessible.
How to delete a VKontakte public? Step 1. Remove administrators
The first thing we will need is to eliminate the so-calledpublic leaders, if any. To do this, we go to the public page and under the avatar click on the "Page Management" button. Next, select the tab "Participants" - "Leaders". We will see all users enrolled in this category. These are the ones that need to be removed.

The second, longest action is the removal of all users subscribed to your public. Of course, if you have only a few dozen people, then this operation will not drag on for a long time. Otherwise, you will have to delete it in the literal sense “until you turn blue”. But this step cannot be ignored. Therefore, if you decide to delete a public page, then the elimination of participants is one of the most important stages. To implement it, go to the community page, then "Page Management" - "Participants". Opposite each will be a "Remove from Community" link.

The third stage is the removal of everything that your public is rich in, namely:

- music in albums;
- photos in albums;
- public rules (if any);
Final step. Deleting all settings
To orderto understand what is at stake, go to the "Information" tab, which is still in the same "Page Management" section. We have to uncheck all the checkboxes in front of all the items, eliminate the name and description of the public. Also, if you posted links to other groups, accounts or external sites, then they also need to be deleted. This can be done in the "Links" section.
