Late last week, Ryan made a much-needed improvement to Splitwise’s delete friend functionality. Now, you can delete any friend as long as they’re not in a group with you.
Previously, Splitwise blocked you from deleting friends if you had ever added an expense outside of a group with them AND another friend. This was happening because deleting friends deleted all expense records between you two, and Splitwise wanted to block multi-party records from being deleted in case one of the parties on the expense wasn’t all settled up yet. Ryan built a work-around that will enable you to delete the friends you want, without obliterating a piece of someone else’s balance puzzle.

Dear Lauren, Sarah and other roomies at 227 Marlene. You have the wrong email address for Sean. Stop spamming me with Splitwise bills. I would think that — after 6 months of Sean not getting your emails and probably not paying his bills — you would figure this out, but I’m apparently overestimating you. If I knew what city 227 Marlene was in, I’d look you up, maybe check out the new curtains & stuff you’ve been buying. Instead I’ve just created a folder to send all Splitwise emails to the trash. Good luck getting your $ back from Sean.
Hey Not Sean! Zoe from Splitwise here. So sorry you’ve been having this issue. They probably just made a typo when they input their roommate’s email address. If you get in touch with us at email@example.com, we will happily make sure you never get Splitwise emails again.
