Can I Unsubscribe From Match.com Emails?
Bothered by Match.com spam mails? If you are a user of one of the oldest dating platforms out there, you already know how nasty they can be with their email spam.

Whatever your case is, we can help you get rid of spam messages from Match.com quickly.

How To Unsubscribe From Match Emails in the Email Itself
This is a simpler method to unsubscribe from any email, but also potentially a dangerous one.
- Why simpler? You can click on the link in the email itself without any additional effort
- Why dangerous? You should not click on any links in suspicious emails. Unsubscribe email scams are a trend among fraudsters and will steal your data if you fall for the trick
In case you are sure that the email is from Match.com and not a scammer, you can click on the Unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email.
This process should remove you from the Match.com email list, but it could take a few days for all promotional emails to stop. This method will also work in case you are not a subscriber but are still getting emails.
Blocking Match.com Spam Emails From Your Email Inbox
Whether you are a registered user or Match.com decided to randomly spam you, if you don't want these emails, you can block the sender's email address permanently.
Here is a rundown on how to block junk and spam emails with different email service and internet providers:
You can get rid of the Match.com email by opening it, clicking on the three dots in the top right corner, and choosing the Block option.
If you use Outlook, select the Match.com message and then tap the Home tab. Find the Junk Mail option and click on Block Sender
Hotmail users need to access their More mail settings by clicking on the Gear icon in their Inbox. From there, select Blocked senders from the Safe and blocked senders section. Add Match.com email to the list
Yahoo Mail users need to access their settings to add an email to the block list. After clicking on the Cog icon and finding the Security and Privacy section, Match.com can be added to the Blocked addresses
With AOL, there are several options. Users can either mark an email as spam in their account or block a specific email address on their iPhone by accessing the Spam Controls in the Account Settings
Reporting Match.com Spam or Phishing Attempts
Reporting spam emails is essential. You are not only helping yourself by filtering out spam, but you are helping your email service provider to recognize the pattern of spam messages and block them automatically in the feature.
Phishing attempts are more serious. Unlike spam emails, phishing is always dangerous. These emails contain malicious links, which will lead you to disclose private data.
Match.com was accused of scamming people into subscribing, but since they are a legitimate company, emails coming from them are not phishing. They will not lead you to a bogus website, nudging you into leaving credit card details or your Social Security number.
