I do not receive the email, what do I do?

It is possible that when requesting access to your POF account you will not receive the email in which the access link appears for reset your account password. Here are the three possible reasons why the POF message with the verification link is not arriving:

  • The email is not linked to any profile: you can try entering another email account that you have active.
  • The POF profile you are trying to access no longer exists: Perhaps you have broken certain rules or because you have not carried out the verification of the phone number.
  • The verification email is in the SPAM or junk mail folder: for this you must access this folder and check if it is there.
  • deregistration: You may have canceled your POF account once and forgot about it.

We hope that this never happens, but if this is your case, we recommend create a new Plenty of Fish account and verify the data when creating it, avoid losing access and your contacts/mail history again!
