Can't Access POF - Plenty of Fish - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as plentyoffish.com

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Omg there is actually real people on plenty of fish?
No worries people no worries i have Markus on the phone!

Gemma Stubbs · 27 March 2014 - 10:22

I'm puzzled all the comments slagging everyone off saying we're losers and should get a life because we're gutted POF is down, surely you must be on there to, if you've ended up on this web page???

Again the site didn't load last night or today. This user has been accessing the net from day one, so not a new computer user.

Larry Parrish · 2 days 1 hour 59 mins ago

still loving for the right women in pof and i cant get access to my Account

Gem Cruz · 3 days 11 hours 9 mins ago

i cant access too.. i tried many names and it always rejected. urgh..

Cassandra Graham Hofmeister · 3 days 16 hours 1 min ago

It will not lee me create a new account, says I am using symbols such as < which I am not. This is the third time in two weeks I have tried to set up an account

Wilhelm Gere · 4 days 3 hours 42 mins ago

Same again. Third time, newly created account was up for a few hours, then gone. Can't log in, can't find username. Totally useless website. It's deleting accounts like they were all junk mail. Can't create new account, can't update info. Says all passwords are taken, says new email address is invalid. Says it can't delete account when we just want to log in.

Leitha Bagsby · 13 April 2014 - 13:51

won't let me build a profile.. everytime I click continue it tells me not to use symbols just letters and numbers... I only have letters in the username... was check your site out but too much aggravation trying to build a profile... not user friendly at all

Barbara Hastings · 13 April 2014 - 05:16

I entered a profile it came up I lived in Kosovo!! couldn't change location so I deleted that and re entered a British location then the next day that wasn't active!! Tried again and every username was taken!! Even obscure spellings with numbers etc. Eventually found an e mail address and contacted 3 days ago still no reply! tried e vow that's same company no problems most the same faces etc but POF seems to have more members

Jeremy Warden · 12 April 2014 - 15:23

I agree with shannon - i have noway to get my account up and running - theeres noone to fix my issue

Ferguson Stewart · 11 April 2014 - 13:45

Its getting very annoying I go to type in my password for my account and no go I then create a whole new one and 10 minutes later it's gone again.

Robert Foggon Jnr · 9 April 2014 - 12:20

I've managed to get my pof account working after a week of having it constantly being removed - i didn't even hear anything back from POF with regards to my emails.

What i did was move the images i usually use into a completely different drive - usually they were in my D: drive, i moved it to the partitioned F: - I chose the images as normal and my profile is now working - i think someone reported one of my images because i used Photoshop to make it look like i was in New York - even though i specified in the image commentary that it wasn't a real picture lol

Lorraine Jones · 9 April 2014 - 12:06

I have tried, looking at the posts sounds like there are multiple problems right now. typical when I had just started communicating with a nice guy!!!. only a standard email from customer services right now, saying there will be delays with responses, very frustrating

Sandra Marie · 8 April 2014 - 17:03

every time i'd log in it'd say "server is down"

Craig Watkins · 8 April 2014 - 16:40

still trying to login. Wondering why it won't accept my password, then when I click on reset password it says my account doesn't exist. Worried now that those I am talking to will thinking I am ignoring them.

Nico Blanchard · 8 April 2014 - 15:09

Hi to all.. I have been working in the media's for now 9 years i do go on pof to see what is going on in the internet dating world... As adults have to know how to make the difference because there is a lot of fake profiles.. There is still really good people and the proof is that you guys are all on here... I think some people in here should get together and create a 100% free internet dating site...

Angel Moore · 8 April 2014 - 14:43

It's been crashing a lot lately.

Patricia Faustman Campbell · 7 April 2014 - 16:24

try to register and it says i can't in my "area" due to too much spam... help

Raymond Nimar · 7 April 2014 - 08:00

I tried to make a new ID but non of my username was accepted:(

Wilhelm Gere · 7 April 2014 - 07:29

Same as the others. Tried to create an account for someone who isn't that computer savvy, then it won't let them log in. Other times it says it can't delete the account even though they were just trying to log in. Doesn't know their password even though they got an email welcoming me. We spent over an hour doing the questionnaires and now we have to do it all again??? Not real impressed. Can't upgrade if it doesn't work to begin with.

Robert Foggon Jnr · 7 April 2014 - 00:40

Still unable to register and POF haven't even bothered replying to my emails - pretty crappy customer service... not impressed.

Chris Grange · 6 April 2014 - 05:17

whats going on with pof I sign up last bout hour then it signs me out and when I try to sign in it says wrong password when its not help lol

Todd Foster · 5 April 2014 - 19:26

POF has been down for me, about a week now. It says that my email address doesn't exist, and I've tried for about 45 minutes to create a username. No matter how unique the username is, it says the username is taken. :(

Robert Foggon Jnr · 4 April 2014 - 09:18

I'm still unable to register an account with POF - it keeps telling me that the username is taken. I've tried emailing them and it's now been over 2 days... still no word :(

Patricia Gi · 2 April 2014 - 06:20

I tried again last night. It took me long time to be able to open another account with POF. It deleted me for the THIRD TIME. My account doest not exist again according to them. I left messages on the phone and several through emails. NO RESPONSE.

Markus, why don't you communicate with 'loyal' members??? Why there are NO comments, answers, explanations to us??!!

Big disappointment & frustration!!! :(((

Alicia Stewart · 1 April 2014 - 17:48

My account has been deleted! I attempted two additional times and both again deleted. Same story as the last few, says my login is taken, passwords aren't correct when they are, email is not registered, and I was in the middle of talking to two some people! What is going on??? this needs to be fixed asap.

Patricia Gi · 1 April 2014 - 16:17

The system is not allowing me to go into my account. I registered twice with different accounts and still having problems. I need URGENT HELP.

My pictures and description are fine according to POF rules. Please I need a response inmediately. I need one of my new accounts and all my messages from both accounts in one of them. I did NOT have a chance but a couple of hours in each one to enjoy your site.

Are there any problems with POF site???

Chachi Medrano · 1 April 2014 - 13:41

It deleted mine today! I created another account and it was working fine then it logged me out and now its deleted again! WTF!!!

Kelly Jane Fallbrook · 30 March 2014 - 13:37

I can't join either. I thought someone was trying to tell that maybe i would meet someone in sainsburys, but nope, it was full of couple and pensioners lol.

Danijel Zivkovic · 30 March 2014 - 13:27

I do not know some problem with this site, my pasword error!

Dan Parkes · 30 March 2014 - 08:40

Had my accounts deleted twice and now can't create a new profile, what's going on???

Sue Kelly · 30 March 2014 - 00:57

Im new to this the meet me and online tabs not working ?? stupid pof:-/

Khan Jee · 28 March 2014 - 07:36

I am unable to register, chose million user name and it say, user name already taken. any advice

Karen Hallock Heyn · 27 March 2014 - 13:33

POF is not letting me create a new profile. It says that every name that I try to use is already assigned. Not possible. Any help?

John Cox · 27 March 2014 - 11:22

Yep... looks like Markus finally paid the electric bill... POF's back online... LOL... ah well, it was nice talking to you guys on here... but now it's back to the mad-house they call POF I guess... tee, hee... LLAP... :-)

Christine Dorricott · 27 March 2014 - 11:16

In response to your comment, Jeff Lisabeth. I have been approached by loads of married men, so both sexes are being unfaithful! I have never knowingly dated a married man, don't agree with it and before you ask, yes I am single and not looking for a free dinner from anyone! I always offer to go Dutch, after all it is 2014!

Verna Demet · 27 March 2014 - 11:16

How long has POF been out ? I just came on to check my messages and couldn't even get to the page.

Peter Socia · 27 March 2014 - 11:15

Yep sure is just another reason to get off the site. Just as bad as any pay site no difference but the cash

Joe Knewjersey · 27 March 2014 - 11:15

The site is up but I cant access it from my phone.. Anyone else havin that issue?

Kristi Leigh · 27 March 2014 - 11:13

Yeah thanx now I can't delete my profile wtf.. I give up on this site anyways bunch of guys just looking for sex anyways immature lil boys... hopefully back up soon to delete. Peace.

Vennesah Hendrix · 27 March 2014 - 11:09

So that's why my phone hasn't been blowing up all day and I still have battery life left!

Jason Scott · 27 March 2014 - 11:07

@Sarah Kivi The big issue with sites like POF and OKCupid is that the women who sign up get literally hundreds of messages a day and guys who actually want to talk and get to know them are lost in the soup of "sup sexy" and "hey girl, DTF?" messages. It's really hard to break through and show that you are genuine.

Iva Spindler · 27 March 2014 - 11:05

Ugh I knew I should've exchanged email/phone #! How the heck can I confirm my date for tonight... live and learn. Thank you POF!

Fish Gagnon · 27 March 2014 - 11:05

I was actually just logging on to delete my account (too many idiots on a DATING site looking for friends. That's what MeetMe's for, dumbasses.). Noticed I had a message from this chick I pissed off really badly a long time ago and now I'm curious as hell.

Sarah Kivi · 27 March 2014 - 11:04

POF is chock full of cheaters, but there are a few decent guys on there. It's about sorting through the crazies and cheaters to find the good ones. I'm sure it's the same for guys. Ladies (and I use that term loosely) can be just as batsquat crazy as men.

Marlon Neal Weldon · 27 March 2014 - 11:02

How bad off ya got to be to need to hack a dating site to get a girls digits...

Fabrease Valentine · 27 March 2014 - 11:02

Sooooo... POF is down. Thats unfortunate when I noticed I have 16 unread messages

Dave Wilson · 27 March 2014 - 11:00

I was literally in the middle of asking someone out, seriously bad timing

Adina Finnessey · 27 March 2014 - 10:57

I just checked a few guys profiles from posts on here and some guys seem to be in relationships too. I guess POF is full of cheaters. :(

Lynne Johnson · 27 March 2014 - 10:56

Just my luck, finally get a message and I can't read it. Good to know I'm not alone though!

Angel Moore · 27 March 2014 - 10:54

I wonder if they're changing it to a paid site.

Jeff Lisabeth · 27 March 2014 - 10:53

In my area their is a group of married women that go on POF and hook up for a free meal and night out on the town while hubby's out of town working. (True story)

Frank French · 27 March 2014 - 10:49

I don't recall seeing this many good looking gals on the actual pof site.

Mark Ancerewicz · 27 March 2014 - 10:49

Amazing how many women on this thread are married or have a significant other!!! WTF?!? I'm not sure I even want POF to go back up. No wonder why women disappear after exchanging a few emails... they're already in a relationship.

Denise Baker · 27 March 2014 - 10:40

Every time I start chatting it up with a cutie, and after awhile suggest to meet in person, they make excuses or disappear. I AM there to actually meet, but most guys are there just to flirt and for entertainment.

Stacey Maupin Torres · 27 March 2014 - 10:39

Well, at least we know (most) of us are humanoid, and know the difference between women and a woman, know that "I" usually comes before the word "am" - can punctuate on command - and, are not widowed engineers looking for a "godfearing women" - Sorry; just having some fun with the whole thing. Yep, it's entertaining in here.

Philippa 'Pip' Gorringe · 27 March 2014 - 10:38

Glad it's not just me! Was in the middle of sending a message when it went down, grrr!

Melissa Rhiannon Nock · 27 March 2014 - 10:37

POF is down on both the web and the app is also down on my phone, anyone else experiencing the app being down on their phone?

'Morgan Z. Requiem · 27 March 2014 - 10:37

Well, that's one way to boost my confidence in the morning and then take it away. In retrospect though, when the IHG System crashed last weekend, across the whole country - and I was the one left to manage it manually and make it work.. now THAT was a shitty crash.

This crash? Meh, I've got 7 new messages from girls who probably lack the love for adventure that I seek anyways. Probably doing me a favour.

Emma Cayen · 27 March 2014 - 10:30

SOOOO apparently POF is down because a hacker got in and is stealing peoples information. just saying lol. CREEEEPY.

John Cox · 27 March 2014 - 10:27

Well, in the few hours POF's been down I've managed to mow the lawn, clean out the garage, and redecorate the front bedroom... LOL... yep, much more productive... LMAO... :-)

Nicolas Froesch · 27 March 2014 - 10:26

of course when someone finally responds, the site goes down.

Fiona Campbell · 27 March 2014 - 10:25

aw- so annoying- I could see a new message from someone really interesting but wouldn't let me read it- I thought it was just, my pc

Daniel Jordan · 27 March 2014 - 10:25

damn, knew I should've got her number after sending back and forth messages.

Josh Wilson · 27 March 2014 - 10:25

Half the people that have profiles on there never actually meet anyone anyway. If not more than half. Most of the women on there are just doing it for entertainment because they are bored and have no intent on actually meeting someone. The posts on this thread confirm that.

Joe Knewjersey · 27 March 2014 - 10:24

Ok Cupid sucks and Im on Zoosk and I will never pay for another dating site again. Someone get me off them!! :))

Kristin Swift · 27 March 2014 - 10:23

Gotta go folks... I have a POF date. Seriously! Ha ha!! Luckily we arranged it yesterday and exchanged numbers... wish me luck!

Gary Brewer · 27 March 2014 - 10:23

Awesome, ditto nice to see so many real people actually on POF ha ha ha

Gemma Stubbs · 27 March 2014 - 10:22

I'm puzzled all the comments slagging everyone off saying we're losers and should get a life because we're gutted POF is down, surely you must be on there to, if you've ended up on this web page???

Jeremy Kochel · 27 March 2014 - 10:19

Damn should of came to this section first before asking my boss if he blocked the site haha

Jan Anlezark · 27 March 2014 - 10:17

seriously people, it's not the end of the world, get a life, and for all you people that had a so called date this weekend, how can you arrange one without a phone number? gotta admit how hillarious it is reading eveyones comments

Mark Mccollum · 27 March 2014 - 10:15

i asked someone out for tonight to celebrate my birthday and she was suppose to give me an answer b4 5pm and now POF is down i cant go out please hurry and get it working

Dennis Papadam · 27 March 2014 - 10:14

Yes site's closed so they can net out all the dead fish from the aquarium

Paul Reeves · 27 March 2014 - 10:13

makes me laugh how people say they had a date tonight, if you have got to know them did you not think to get there number lmao

Leslie Tuttle · 27 March 2014 - 10:11

My goodness people! Everyone needs to just calm down! Lol If you're that addicted to the site and that desperate then there's the reason you're still single. I use it when I'm bored cause it's amusing. Lol Calm down, it'll be ok.

Becks Santana · 27 March 2014 - 10:10

LOL!! The addiction this website has on people. I just simply want to update my headliner. Damnit!! ;)

Kristin Swift · 27 March 2014 - 10:09

well, when starbucks starts serving alcohol... maybe we won't need POF anymore?? of course, i am in Utah and they will NEVER let SB's here serve alcohol I am sure. :((

Dave Simpson · 27 March 2014 - 10:04

Actually, I congratulate the creator/s of POF and other such 100% FREE sites.

I am just as disappointed as the next bod there's a crash but it sure beats thos 'pay to communicate' ones (who can only boast that it's "Free to join" - big deal - it's free to walk into a supermarket too!

Congrats to POF and I for one submit a mental card that would read 'good luck and get well soon' - not 'sort out your act' or other such expletives etc etc
A spot of patience would be far better, eh folks?

Nick Cash · 27 March 2014 - 10:04

This is awesome! No more messages for you girlies ha ha!!! Go out in the real world and try to get that same attention, not gonna happen. LOL!!

Joseph Jones · 27 March 2014 - 10:03

Of course it goes down the one day I finally get a message on there... :/ fml

Joe DeVito · 27 March 2014 - 10:01

Sorry everyone. Looks like traffic to my profile has crashed the server

Rudi Hubler · 27 March 2014 - 10:01

I reckon facebook hijacked the site, they're revenue is down, makes sense right!?

Lola Mercado · 27 March 2014 - 09:58

How will I ever get through this workday? lol

Race Baker · 27 March 2014 - 09:57

Horrible site anyway. The women on there are flakey. POF attracts the worst of society. Yet why do I have an account there? I DON'T KNOW!

Daniel Max O'Connell · 27 March 2014 - 09:57

This must be some serious maintenance, Maybe it got overloaded with registrations. LOL

Ka Yin Wa · 27 March 2014 - 09:55

The expression, "fish out of the water" applies here right? What do people do when PoF is down?

Dave Ess · 27 March 2014 - 09:55

POF has many women on it that drop conversations abruptly out of nowhere. Makes me wonder why I am on the site. At the same time I hope it comes back up

Haleigh Randazzo · 27 March 2014 - 09:53

Does anyone know know when it will be back up? I finally got a few cute guys messaging me, and then it goes down. Like what the heck

Syed A Ali · 27 March 2014 - 09:53

too bad they don't have some kind of 1800 toll free help number to fix this problem

Sebasti├ín Holtom · 27 March 2014 - 09:52

ok, I thought It was just me, earluier today I couldnt log on and when I could no messages would be sent and I couldnt read new messages

Ron Gabriel · 27 March 2014 - 09:51

I joined last week and recently completed my profile, and then the site shits the bed last night/today. Based on the negative reviews from what I've been reading. I'm beginning to wonder if it's forewarning, HA! I also checked the FB page for announcements and did not see any posts, However I did see a ridiculous amount of spam on the side comments, SMH.

Donna M FitzGerald · 27 March 2014 - 09:50

wow.. pof has been down for hours... now what will i do when waiting on line for the bank, at a boring meeting etc...

Kristin Swift · 27 March 2014 - 09:49

lol...only us that are seriously addicted to POF would go thru such withdrawals as to seek out this site too! OMG...it's bad.

Angela L Troy · 27 March 2014 - 09:48

Any news on how much longer? Have many notifications but no access

David Synn · 27 March 2014 - 09:48

I also like how so many people are saying: "i had a date tonight and pof down is messing this up" So..you talk get to know the person plan a date... and don't get there number to text/call? Akwarddddd

Andrew Ullah · 27 March 2014 - 09:48

see this site is much better for a dating site, as we can all see each others Facebook page

David Synn · 27 March 2014 - 09:47

It is scary there are real people on POF i thought they where all bots and such. the matrix has been broken!

Ad YellowBentines Shaw · 27 March 2014 - 09:47

I'll be honest. I have literally no idea what to do now. I think I'm a little addicted to POF. It's like a mini confidence boost every time someone messages you :) I think I might go to sleep for a little bit until the site comes back.

Ron Gabriel · 27 March 2014 - 09:47

I joined last week and recently completed my profile, and then the site shits the bed last night/today. Based on the negative reviews from what I've been reading.

Egbe Joseph Idehen · 27 March 2014 - 09:46

Oh damn! I was supposed to have a date tonight but this shitty pof is screwing things up. Anyways anyone in Calgary? Message me :)

Mike Pringle · 27 March 2014 - 09:45

Who knew that there was real people on pof!

John Cox · 27 March 2014 - 09:42

Been on POF for 8 days now and not had a single date so far. Been on here for 10 minutes and already had 3 date offers... :-) ...even managed to sell my old Star Trek VHS collection to the highest bidder. POF???... Ebay???... who needs 'em... LOL ... :-)
