Deleting Your eHarmony Account Through the Website

  2. Carefully review the information regarding account deletion and data removal.
  3. Tap "Yes, close my account".

Deleting Your eHarmony Account Through the Mobile App

  1. Go to the eHarmony app and ensure you're logged in.
  2. Press your profile icon placed in the top right corner of the screen.
  3. Click "Settings" from the menu.

Alternative of Deleting Your Account

Instead of complete deletion, eHarmony offers the option to "hide" your profile. It makes you invisible to other users while preserving your account information in case you wish to return in the future.

How long does it take for my eHarmony account to be deleted?

Your account on eHarmony will be removed immediately after you follow the instructions provided in the article.

Your all associated data, including matches, messages, photos, and any other information stored within your profile will be removed after you delete your account.

Can I reactivate my eHarmony account after deleting it?

Generally, reactivating a deleted account is not possible. eHarmony removes your information once the deletion request is processed.

Will deleting my eHarmony account stop all communications from eHarmony?

When you delete your account, eHarmony will not send any future marketing emails or promotional messages. However, it's advisable to check your email settings and unsubscribe from any eHarmony mailing lists you might be signed up for.
