Clubhouse works like an old-timey “exclusive” club — you have to be invited to the platform by someone who’s already a member and has you in their contacts.
Members are urged to share their entire contacts list with Clubhouse, which means that the platform can get your name, number, and some other information without you having directly given it to them. In addition, this information cannot be deleted.
Getting out of Clubhouse is just as hard as getting into it, as the app offers no options or instructions to permanently delete your account.
If you want to remove yourself from the platform, you have to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, make a request for account deletion, and wait for your request to be acted upon.
With appearances from Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, and a number of other celebrities, Clubhouse’s popularity has skyrocketed. The app currently sits at well over 4.7 million downloads — good enough for Facebook to start planning on making a clone.
