How to Delete an eHarmony Account on Your Own

When yourself, you have three different choices depending on your account.

You have the option to delete your Basic Membership account, delete your Premium Membership account, or you can hide your account altogether.

Basic MembershipWhen you delete a Basic or Premium Membership account on eHarmony, your information and messages are permanently removed and cannot be restored. Whether you are deleting your account via computer or cell phone, you will need to go to eHarmony's online website to complete the steps.
Premium MembershipIf you are in the middle of a subscription with eHarmony but do not want to finish it, you must contact eHarmony's customer service. If your subscription is about to renew, you can choose not to and delete your account as you would do when deleting a Basic Membership.
Hide Your AccountIf you want to take a break from eHarmony but don't want to delete it entirely, hiding your account may be a good choice. By hiding your account, your information will be kept private, and you can restart it at any time.

The following is how to complete each option:
