Visual Supply Company, also known as VSCO Cam or just VSCO is a Photography app and website made especially for those serious professional photographers.
The platform emerged around 2011, and allows one to upload pictures, edit, apply filters, and share them with your fellow VSCO community or other social media sites.
That is not to say that VSCO is similar to Instagram at all because with the short description given above, one might think so but it is not.
The main difference is that there is no likes, comments and followers. Seriously? Yes. VSCO is unique and allows people to showcase their talents in photography without being judged. In order to keep the crowd down, there is a membership fee of $19.99(which may have changed by the time you choose to become a member) leaving the casual users behind.

So after using it for a while, if you had decided to jump to another site or if you feel that VSCO no longer suits your style, you can leave the site.
It’s as simple as that! In a previous article, we highlighted Some ways to delete a VSCO account permanently. If You can, go check that up! Perhaps, the info may be helpful.
As an additional bonus or should I say a continuation of the last post and just before I tell you how long it takes for your account to be completely deleted, I think you can just deactivate the account for a while other than hustle deleting it and perhaps, regretting that you did that later
If you don’t want to permanently delete your VSCO account but want to get rid of the platform, you can deactivate it.
Here are the steps to follow
1. Log in to your VSCO account.
2. Click this link to go to the VSCO deactivation page.
3. Click the first option to deactivate the profile alone. This deactivates only your profile with images and you can access your in-app purchases.
4. Click the second option to deactivate your profile and account. With this you have no access to your account as it goes dormant.
If you change your mind anytime later to reactivate your account, you can simply log in to your account and it reactivates it.
Now to the reason for this post- “How long does it take to delete your VSCO account?”… It may sound funny how I delayed in letting you know the answer to that question. Well, I just wanted to be sure you read the other parts of the post. The answer is a couple of hours. There’s still more to read below.
