How to Delete your Plenty of Fish (POF) Account

Plenty of Fish, now known as POF is an online dating application that enables you to find a match for yourself. A brief overview of this whole process is that when you sign up for POF, it asks you for some basic details such as your name, gender, age, background, etc. Once you manage to sign up for this application successfully, it takes you through a Chemistry Test in which it tries to learn more about your interests. After the completion of this test, POF analyzes your profile and your test and then starts suggesting you the people that best match your interests.

If you like someone from the suggestions provided by POF, then you can message him/ her using this application. Otherwise, you can just keep on searching for your partner. POF also enables you to look for people using certain filters such as race, ethnicity, age, etc. Although POF is a free dating app as far as its basic services are concerned, however, you need to pay the specified fee for using its premium services.
