Delete Custom Feeds on Reddit

Using Custom Feeds on Reddit, you can combine multiple subreddits into one customizable feed if you want all posts and discussions related to a particular topic in one place. For instance, you can create a custom feed for fitness and add all the sports, health, yoga, and other related communities to the feed.

To create a Custom Feed, visit a subreddit page, tap the menu at the top right and click on Add to Custom Feed. Then tap Create a Custom Feed and give it a name. You can then add other communities to this feed or create other feeds.

Unfortunately, the Reddit app doesn't seem to have an option to edit the added communities or delete the custom feed. So, if you want to remove a custom feed from your Reddit, you'll have to do it on the site's desktop version.

Steps to Delete a Reddit Custom Feed on Desktop

  1. Open on your web browser.
  2. Log in to your account if not already.
  3. Click the drop-down menu at the top left.
