This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Delete Usermetas


You can delete a user metadata one by one or a metadata of all users. It is a powerful tool, so use it responsibly.
The deleted data can not be recovered, so we strongly recommend making a backup of your database before deleting the metadata.

If you leave the User ID field blank, the deletion of the metadata will apply to ALL users. But if you add a user ID, only the chosen metadata of that user will be deleted.

Now you can select user by dropdown!


  • Easy and intuitive interface


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/delete-usermetas directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Use the Settings->Plugin Name screen to configure the plugin


Can I delete one metadata in all users?

Yes you can. You have to select one metadata and leave blank the field “User ID”.

Can I selected multiple users to delete one usermeta?

No, you can’t yet (next release). If you need to delete one metadata to multiple user, you need do it one by one.

This is a great tool for deleting user meta when you do not have direct db access. Corrupted user meta can cause issues with the organization of the Block Editor (aka - if a metabox usually in the main content section is stuck in the sidebar) which is what this tool was used to resolve. As the description states, always be careful when deleting user meta (or anything) as some of the user meta is crucial to WordPress functionality, but in the situation we had deleting user meta related to "meta-box-order" solved the issue being troubleshot. Thank you for this tool Jose! -FTFDev
