How to Delete My Account / Cancel My Profile
See, contrary to the assumption of many including a Business Insider coworker or two , deleting the Tinder app off your phone doesn't mean you have deleted your account. To repeat: Deleting the app does not delete your account. To delete your account for real, navigate to the Settings pane, select App Settings, scroll down and select Delete Account. You'll then see a message that says "Account successfully deleted" if it worked. You have to cancel your subscription via email. OkCupid gives you the option of deleting or disabling your account.
While dating apps do attract users with less virtuous intentions, and some people feel compelled to meet for random hook-ups through a dating app even while they are in a committed relationship, there is an interesting question: what if some of these non-single users don't even know they have an online dating profile? Turns out, there are many people who think deleting a dating app from your phone is the same as deleting your profile - but it isn't. Dating apps and online dating sites make it kind of tricky to get rid of you altogether — after all, they attract people and investors based on user numbers, so they are not motivated to make it obvious how to delete your account. Many Tinder and dating app users delete the app from their phones, mistaking this from deleting their profile altogether. Keep in mind — this deletes all your messages and profile information, so you can't get it back. If you paid for the Tinder Plus service, Tinder makes it one step harder to cancel: you have to cancel your subscription via email. Bear in mind, if you log in to Tinder again after deleting your account, it creates a whole new account for you.
The phrase "I wish I could quit you" takes on a whole new meaning when you want out of a relationship with an internet service. Sure, you once thought you and Facebook or Amazon or Netflix would be together forever, but terms of service change, end-user license agreements mature, and, well, you're just not in the same digital place anymore. Sadly, not all websites and social networks and online retailers are created equal when it comes to breaking up. With some, it takes only a couple of clicks to say goodbye.
