Reddit doesn’t allow its users to delete their account temporarily, but once you delete your account then it is gone forever with all of your favorite links. Once you have made up your mind to delete your account and have done it, you cannot retrieve it back again. You’ll never be able to use your username again in the future and nor anyone else can. Some additional information- you cannot download your data directly from the website, you have to send a request to the company for all of your data.
