How do I permanently delete my POF account?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

To permanently delete your Plenty of Fish (POF) account, follow these steps:

1. Open your preferred web browser and go to the Plenty of Fish website.
2. Sign into your POF account using your username and password. If you’re already signed in, skip to the next step.
3. Once you’re logged in, click on “My Profile” at the top of the page.
4. In the drop-down menu that appears, click on “My Profile” again.
5. Now, click on the “Settings” tab located near the top of the page.
6. Scroll down until you see the “Delete Account” section.
7. In the “Delete Account” section, you’ll find a link that says “Delete Account.” Click on it.
8. A new page will open up, asking for your confirmation to delete your account. Read the information provided on this page carefully.
9. If you’re certain that you want to proceed with deleting your POF account, click on the “Delete Account” button.
10. You will be required to enter your username and password once again for security purposes.
11. After entering your credentials, click on the “Delete Account” button once more to confirm the deletion.
12. Once the deletion process is complete, you will receive a confirmation message indicating that your POF account has been successfully deleted.

It is important to note that deleting your POF account is permanent and cannot be undone. All of your profile information, including photos, messages, and connections, will be removed from the platform. If you change your mind in the future and wish to use POF again, you will need to create a new account.

Additionally, it may take some time for your account to be fully deleted from the POF system. During this period, your profile may still appear in search results, but it will eventually be removed.

Remember to consider any potential consequences before deleting your account, such as losing contact with connections or losing access to any paid features or subscriptions associated with your POF account.
