How do I delete my Match.com profile?

Match.com is an online dating site that connects singles from all over the world, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, colour, or language. Match.com was one of the first online dating sites, and it now has a presence in 24 countries and territories, with websites in 15 languages. 

It also provides mobile apps for Android and iOS, which are both popular platforms. Match’s mission is to assist singles in finding the type of relationship they desire. Match says that their service helps hundreds of thousands of people find love each month.

Although a Match.com account is a social account, it also has a highly personal quality to it. It could be a security concern depending on what you share. As a result, if you aren’t utilising your account, it is recommended that you close it. It will improve your safety and provide you with peace of mind.

One might feel the need to delete their account because perhaps they have found their soul mate; Feel like you’re wasting too much of your time on the internet; Don’t want to waste your money on a useless subscription; Whatever the reason, you’ve come to the right site if you’re seeking for the simplest way to deactivate your Match.com account and cancel your match subscription.

For security reasons, most websites do not enable you to remove an account from your phone. On a phone, it can be difficult to determine who is using the account. It may be simple to log in if your phone is lost or stolen and you don’t have robust security. In this article, I will tell you all about how you can delete your match.com account.

How do I delete my match.com profile?

follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to your account
  2. Click on your profile photo at the upper right of any Match page to go to the ‘My account settings’ area.
  3. Click “Suspend my account” in the ‘Help’ area on the left.
  4. Then click “Click here to delete your account.”
  5. Wait for 24 hours
  6. That’s it! Your match.com profile will be deleted.

If you currently have a subscription, its renewal will be automatically cancelled. You may still have payments to make if you chose to pay in instalments. If you paid through iTunes, make sure you’ve cancelled your subscription renewal on your device by heading to “Settings,” “Apple ID,” “Subscriptions,” and then cancelling the Match subscription.

How to suspend your match account?

You can pause your profile rather than delete it if you would like to be able to access your data or use your account again. If you think you’ll need your account again in the future, suspending it is a wonderful alternative. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Simply click your profile image in the upper right of any Match page
  2. Go to ‘My account settings’ and log in using a computer. 
  3. If you’re going to be gone for an extended period of time, make sure you cancel your automatic renewals first so you don’t get charged again. 
  4. By clicking ‘Manage my subscription,’ you can do so.

When will my subscription be up for renewal?

Knowing when your subscription is about to expire is important, which is why you always can find out in “My account settings.” To get there, go to the top right of any page and click your profile photo.

It’s in “Manage my Subscription” once you get there. You can also examine your purchase history and cancel your auto – renewal from this page.

Will cancelling my subscription also result in the deletion of my account?

If you cancel your membership while it is still current, it will only cancel the subscription; if you want to terminate your account as well, you will have to repeat the process.

What happens to my photo and information in my profile?

I recommend manually removing your profile photos and any personal information you provided before cancelling your account. This information may take some time to remove from Match after you cancel your account, so make sure you delete it before deleting your account if you don’t want anyone to see you on Match or discover you using the information you placed on your profile.

How can I delete my account on my smart phone?

On a mobile device, you are unable to remove your account. This option is not available because it poses a security risk. Match.com, like many other companies, does not allow it.

How can I deactivate my Match.com account?

To delete your account, follow the actions outlined above. But don’t click “To delete your account and simply remove your profile from the site, click here” when you get to the end of the process. Instead, select the option to suspend. Your account will be deactivated as a result of this action.

What is the procedure for removing the Match.com app from my phone?

Although the technique for deleting apps differs every phone, you should be able to follow a standard procedure. 

  1. You should be able to press down on the app on most phones.
  2. Drag it to the trash can at the top of the screen once you’ve selected it on your home page. 
  3. Alternatively, select the “x” in the app’s corner. 

Note: If you want to delete it, you’ll be prompted to confirm your decision.

The bottom line

Hover your mouse over your avatar once you’ve logged into your Match.com account. Your avatar is usually formed of your name or screen name if you uploaded a photo of yourself to the account. You’ll need to decide whether to restrict or cancel your account at this point. Suspending your account hides your avatar; deleting it permanently removes it.
