How to delete whole chat (contact, including chat window)


Hi, I have the latest version of zoom running on MacOs.


Could someone tell me please how to not only hide but delete a contact's chat? Even though I delete the chat, the contact is still there. I can delete the chat history but then only the chat is hidden.


All in all: How can I delete and remove a chat incl. the related contact?


Thanks in advance

Hi @S_Pa, thank you for contributing to the Zoom Community!


If the contact is external, you can delete the contact; the chat associated with that contact will also be removed.

  1. Sign in to the Zoom desktop client.
  2. Click the Contacts tab 


  3. Find the contact you want to block.
  4. While hovering the cursor over their name in the list, click the ellipsis icon 


    ... beside the contact's name.
  5. Click Delete Contact.
  6. Confirm deletion by clicking Delete.

I hope this helps!
