How to Delete POF Account on Your Mobile
You can also delete your POF account on a mobile device, using a mobile browser. You must use a browser, and not the POF app, as the deletion process takes place only on the POF website. The steps are similar to deleting your POF account on a computer:

How to Hide Your Profile on POF
If you don’t want your POF account to disappear completely, you have the option to hide it instead of deleting it, an option many people prefer. Here’s what you need to do to hide POF account:
- Go to the POF sign in page.
- Input your username/email and password to log into your account.
- Go to the Edit Profile tab.
- Click the “To hide your profile from others, click here” link to hide your POF profile.
With a hidden profile, you won’t appear in any search results or bar of images.
These steps explain how to delete a POF account. Once deleted, your account cannot be reactivated. Only accounts active a minimum of 24 hours can be deleted, so you can’t delete POF account before 24 hours pass. If you don’t want your profile to disappear completely, you can hide it instead. If you have forgotten your login information, go to the Recover Account page and enter the email address that you used to sign up in order to reset your password.
