Delete your data from dating apps for free

Remove your personal information from apps like Tinder and POF in under two minutes.

Why should I delete my data from dating apps like Plenty of Fish?

You should delete your data from dating apps because the type of personal data typically stored by them is sensitive, and often shared with third parties.

Personal data that dating apps typically store:

  • Name and address
  • Tastes and habits
  • Contact details
  • Cookies & IP address
  • Credit and debit card details
  • Economic, social and cultural information

Dating apps have been at the centre of a lot of controversy over what they do with their users' data. Almost all of them share personal data with advertisers.

Grindr, for example, only stopped sharing users' HIV status with other companies in 2018.

Similarly, the Norwegian Consumer Council reported that the Android versions of OkCupid and Tinder, which are also owned by the owners of Match.com, have shared information about the political views, ethnicities and location of their users with a 'customer engagement service' called Braze.

What's that?

Personal data is any information that can directly or indirectly identify you as you. Think address, beliefs, and financial records.

How do I ask apps like Tinder to delete my personal data?

The easiest way to delete your information is by sending a request through Rightly. Just pick from our list of dating apps and websites and send a deletion request.

If you can't find the one that you want, you can use the search bar to find it on our main deletion page. Or, contact our customer support team - they'd be happy to help!

How long until apps like Bumble and Tinder respond to my request?

After the company has received your request, they have to reply in full within 30 days, or give a valid reason for asking for an extension. If this happens, our support team is here to help!

What if they refuse to delete my personal data from dating app records?

Don't worry, they have to delete your data if you ask them by law: this is thanks to your ‘right to erasure’ under GDPR law. GDPR applies in the UK and EU.

Whether you want to delete your data from a retailer, social media, or even your local council, you can. It’s yours after all.

What if I’ve said they can use it in the past?

If you agreed to an organisation using your data but you’ve changed your mind, don’t worry! You can still ask them to delete your data.

What if I’m not sure if they have my data?

You can still ask them. If they don’t have it, they have to let you know.
