To permanently delete all of your information including photos and messages, meaning you will need to create a new account from scratch should you choose to join OkCupid in the future, select the red Delete account button.
Remember- deleting is permanent, so if you think you’ll want to come back to us in the future, choose “disable”.
Disabling your account shows it as deleted to anyone who looks for it, but it leaves you the option to re-open your profile in the future if you wish.
If you delete your account, you can use the same email address for another account in the future, however your username will be permanently deleted and you cannot use it again.

  • If you decide to make another OKCupid account, you won’t be able to use the same username.

    Publicly visible text/images often aren’t properly deleted even when you succeed in deleting an account. Try editing or deleting them manually before deleting the account itself. If you’re unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact OkCupid and ask personally. By the way, deletion requests don’t necessarily mean your data will actually be deleted (e.g. due to legal obligations).
