Plenty of Fish

Plenty of Fish or known as POF is a free dating site that earns revenue through advertising, they operating in the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Brazil and Ireland. It is not often the website goes down but when it does it can be due to scheduled maintenance updates, or outages no one can explain.

There are millions of users and when there is an outage people will come forward saying they cannot access the dating site. Other issues that can occur include registration, not able to login. A few users have said previously that they have trouble uploading photos. Yet again, it is not often there are problems with POF.

    Trying to sign up for a new account(old one deleted). It comes to a screen saying the app needs to be updated. I hit the link which opens the App Store, but there’s no update option, just open. I hit that and it opens the app on the page demanding update… Swimming in circles! This site/app is designed by one major idiot!

  • JR

    I deleted my account. I got a bunch of messages from people I didn’t even send messages to and my paged was hacked. All my photos are gone and replaced with some chick that I’ve never seen before in a state at least 1800 miles away from me! I’ll never have another account in that site again!

  • john smith

    its gone guys. it really wasen’t bad but unfortunately meet me is still up and running and has open prostitution on it… stay away from that app as much as you can..

  • Gissy1

    I have been unable to sign onto POF for about a week now. Keep getting a message that my name or password is incorrect, asks for my email when I ask to reset, and then never get an email. However, I know it is the right email because I have had messages from POF on it.

  • Lisa

    i am trying to create an account on pof and this keeps showing up – Your username is only allowed to have letters A through Z, underscore (_), certain accented characters, and numbers 0 through 9. No spaces or other characters are allowed.
    I am only using letters any suggestions?

  • Rick M

    Keep getting
    “Your username or password was incorrect”.I try a password reset, I get the link in my email to change it but then I get the same error. Meanwhile I am getting several emails stating I have new messages. I emailed POF but 24 hours later still no reply. It may be time to move away from this troubled platform

  • Doina Bratu

    Same issue 🙁 I just wanna delete the account at this point !

  • john smith

    the dating app is finished guys. try ok cupid. stay away from meetme though,a bunch of fake people and open prostitution

  • catherine abbott

    Same issue. how did you email them? All I can find is that you have to be logged in if you want to contact them directly

  • Rick M

    Catherine, If you weed through their useless help pages you will find this email… [email protected] Ive sent 2 emails over the last 6 days and so far no reply.

  • Rick M

    Exactly what I’m considering. Its almost a week and no reply to my email.

  • catherine abbott

    I opened a new account and emailed [email protected] through that account. It took them three days but they got back to me to say that my old account appeared to have been hacked. They flagged and then deleted that account. Not what I wanted but at least there isn’t anyone out there using my information to scam people.

    Thanks for the info.

  • Jd

    I can not send messages. Anyone else having this issue

  • numb

    I can sign in but can’t do anything, can’t read the message, can’t search, can’t see who view me. It keeps redirecting me to verify my phone

  • conniedumonceaux

    I can’t see who viewed me and I am paying.Starting to get pissed off. If it isn’t this it is something else that won’t work on the site.

  • Curliegirl2
