Most of the users come across the decision to close their account on a dating site like POF (Plenty of Fish) or others after finding their perfect match or wanting to try out other alternatives for better results. Whatever the reason might be, you can quickly delete your Plenty of Fish account.
Note: Deleting your POF account is permanent.
Like most dating sites, POF provides two options: permanently closing your account or deactivating it. If you just want to take a break from POF, hiding your profile (temporary deactivation) is the best option, as no one will be able to find you on POF unless you reactivate your account.
How do I delete my POF account?
- Visit the POF account closure page.
- Sign in to your account if you haven’t.
- Scroll down and click on the Delete My Account button.
