OoVoo is a Web conferencing application developed by ooVoo LLC for Mac OS X, Windows iOS and Android. This chat and instant messaging client is the primary competitor to programs such as Skype and iChat. OoVoo allows you to make free video calls which include text chat and video chat, video messaging, file sharing, instant messaging and web video chat.
First time users of this application are often expected to create an account using an email address, an optional photo and their birthdates. However if the account does not interest you or for whatever reason and you want to delete it, the following is a step by step procedure on how to go about it.
Open the application on Windows Operating system and click on “Start,” then select “Programs,” and finally click on “ooVoo.” As for a Mac OS X operating systems, click on “Finder,’ followed by “Applications,” and finally click on the “ooVoo,” icon.
Secondly log in to the ooVoo account that you want to delete ooVoo often allows users to create multiple accounts with the same email hence you will need to sign to each of the accounts individually in order to be able to delete Oovoo Account. Select the name of the account that you want to edit, enter the password and finally sign in.
Click on “File,” followed by “My Account,” and finally “Edit My ooVoo Card.” Given the fact that there is no actual delete option, you will have to edit your profile so that it has no connection whatsoever to you and then notify the administrators at ooVoo of your intentions. Select the display name field and type “Inactive Account,” and then type “ooVoo,” at the tail end of your email address such that it appears as “email@example.com,’ just as an example.
Remove your picture if you had one. Remember there is no option for deleting the picture which you uploaded. If the picture was not your like, you can simply leave it there but if it is your picture, upload another picture which has no connections to you. In order to upload the new picture, go to “File,” then click on “Change my display photo,” then browse through your computer for an image to use and finally click “Open.” A new picture will be displayed.
Review the settings of your privacy. Given the fact that you no longer want to use this account you do not intend to let other users see that it exists. Go to “File,” once again, followed by “Privacy,” and finally, click on “No one,” option under the option” who can search for you.” This will guarantee that no one can search and find you again on ooVoo.
Since the account will be closed, you will not be expecting any email notifications from the ooVoo system. Therefore, to remove email notification, click on “File,” then”Emails.” Ensure you deselect all the check boxes under “Notification.” This will help ensure that you will never receive any emails from the ooVoo system again.
Repeat all the above steps for all the ooVoo accounts that you want to delete. Finally, you will have to uninstall it from your mobile device or computer.
