3. On the next page, you will see various tabs. Click on the “Settings” tab, which is usually located towards the right side of the page.

4. Scroll down until you find the “Delete Account” section. Here, you will see a link that says “Delete Account.” Click on it.

6. If you are certain that you want to proceed with deleting your POF account, click on the button that says “Delete Account.” This will initiate the deletion process.

7. You may be prompted to enter your username and password again as an additional security measure. Follow the instructions provided, and then click on the “Delete Account” button once more.

8. After you have completed these steps, your POF account will be permanently deleted. You will no longer have access to your profile, messages, or any other information associated with your account.

It’s important to note that deleting your POF account will also remove your profile from search results and prevent other users from contacting you. Additionally, any subscriptions or upgrades you have purchased will be canceled.

Remember, once you delete your account, you will not be able to recover it or any of the data associated with it. Therefore, it’s advisable to download any important information or conversations you wish to keep before proceeding with the deletion.
