How do I permanently delete my video and images?

Your content is permanently deleted either automatically as part of purging after your plan's  retention period or immediately upon Delete Forever request.

Automatic Deletion

All images and video are automatically deleted after they're older than your subscription plan's retention period unless you saved or shared an Event.

Immediate Deletion

The desktop browser version of Camio has a Delete Forever menu option on the muti-select menu that forces immediate deletion prior to the normal retention period purge.

  1. Click the checkbox in the upper right corner of the earliest and latest Events you want to delete immediately.
  2. Choose More > Delete Forever.
  3. See your email for confirmation of the deletion request, which takes about 10 minutes to complete.

WARNING: When using this new Delete Forever menu option, all of the content between the earliest and latest timestamps selected will be deleted permanently as soon as you click the menu option. The deletion is NOT limited to the individually selected Events. The Delete Forever request also overrides any prior Save or Share operations that would otherwise prevented the Events from being purged.


Answers to some frequently asked questions about deleting:

  • Your browser's local cache may still contain an image even after that image has been deleted from


Account Deletion

You can also delete your entire account, but this prevents the email address associated with your account from being used again with Camio once you've pressed the delete button at Be careful.
