How to Delete a Zoosk Account [February 2020]
Zoosk is a relatively popular dating site. If the site was successful and you managed to find a partner, you won’t need the account anymore.
So, you might want to delete Zoosk altogether. Unfortunately, Zoosk makes it a bit difficult to delete your account, allowing you only to deactivate it from the site. Of course, you can get your Zoosk account deleted, but things aren’t as simple as on other social media platforms. Here’s how to permanently delete your Zoosk account.
First, you’re going to head on over to the Zoosk website and log in. You’ve probably already tried finding the option that would allow you to delete the account, but without success. You’ve also probably stumbled upon the Deactivate option. Bear with us here, deactivating your Zoosk account is the first step towards proper, permanent deletion.
If you haven’t tried finding the delete option, here’s how to deactivate your account. First, log in to your Zoosk account with your proper credentials. Assuming you used the website, you won’t have any issues logging in.
Then, go to your profile and select Edit Profile from the drop-down menu. You’ll want to either delete or change all the profile information. If you don’t, you’ll keep receiving match notifications. Besides, deleting your info will keep it secure. So, remove your name, your profile image, your location, and any other pieces of personal info.
Once you’ve done this, go to the Settings page. To access this page, click the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the Zoosk homepage. Then, navigate to Settings. You’ll see a list of options such as Language, Email, Password, and so on. Towards the bottom of the screen, you’ll see the Account Status entry. Click the Edit link next to it. A Deactivate button should appear. Select Deactivate and confirm by clicking Deactivate on the next page.
Zoosk will ask you why you want to deactivate your account. Enter whatever you want and select a reason. You don’t have to type anything to deactivate your account.
Remove from Facebook
Zoosk allows you to connect your account with your Facebook. Unfortunately, the deactivation process won’t make Zoosk disappear from Facebook. You’ll have to do it yourself. To remove Zoosk from your Facebook profile, you need to revoke Zoosk’s permissions.
To do this, log in to your Facebook account. Then, navigate to the upper-right corner of the screen and click the downwards-pointing arrow. From the drop-down menu that appears, select Settings. On the Settings screen, you’ll find a list of options on the left-hand side. Navigate to Apps and Websites and follow the link.
You’ll see a list of all apps that you’ve connected to your Facebook account. Hover over the Zoosk entry, and select X to remove it from your Facebook account.
So far, you’ve deactivated your account and made sure that it doesn’t appear on your Facebook account. However, it still exists, and you can restore it with a simple login on the Zoosk site. If you want your account completely deleted, you need to contact Zoosk support and ask them to remove it.
To do this, google “Zoosk” and select Contact Us. From here, contact the Zoosk customer support and ask them to delete your account altogether. They should process your request in a few days, and you’ll receive a notification about it.
Removing the Zoosk Account
The process of removing your Zoosk account is a little bit tedious, especially if you’ve connected it with your Facebook account. However, if you follow the outlined steps, you shouldn’t experience any problems.
