Turns out getting rid of the Instagram-style social media app is not as easy as you might hope.

By now, unless you have been hiding under a rock with no WiFi capabilities, you will have heard about Vero, the Instagram-esque social media app that has seen a huge surge in users over the last few weeks.

Well, while many have enjoyed the benefits of the link-based app, the huge amount of technical difficulties it has suffered from recently has also led a great deal of users to flee the service almost immediately.

Plus, the company has faced further controversy thanks to accusations of dodgy business practices and poor treatment of workers:

So, if you are already sick of Vero, how do you get rid of your account? Well, it's a little bit complicated tbh...

Initially, it would appear you have to 'submit a request' via the company's website here. Which is, you know, weird.

However, some eagle-eyed users have found an additional delete option hidden within the support menu. Although, annoying it is also listed as a 'request':

So, basically, if you wanna delete Vero, send both requests and see what happens. According to Mashable, CEO Ayman Hariri has said they will make it easier to delete your account soon. But, for the time being, it looks like you have to request - just in case you 'change your mind'. Eugh.

Have you tried out Vero yet? Already sick of it? Let us know over in the Facebook comments.
