eHarmony is one of the more popular dating platforms on the market. Its price point makes it attractive to find quality matches. However, some may not be satisfied with the price point and overall experience.
In order to cancel your eHarmony subscription, log into your account, click on date and settings, and click “amend subscription”. This will cancel your subscription, but you will still have to pay for the months that you owe.
In this article, we’re going to show you step by step how to cancel your eHarmony subscription.
Cancel eHarmony Subscription
Canceling your eharmony subscription may seem difficult. eHarmony doesn’t make it easy to cancel for a reason, they want you to remind on the platform.
We always recommend that you take a few things into consideration if you do decide to cancel.
First, make sure that all of your matches that you talk to are secured through a phone number or a third party app. If you decide to cancel your subscription, you won’t be able to talk to your matches anymore.
Ask them for a phone number and make sure that all of the matches you want to take off the platform know that you’re leaving. Leaving a person hanging is one of the worst feelings; it’s good karma to make sure you let them know you’re leaving the platform.
Second, eHarmony has built their app, that it’s completely irrelevant to use unless you pay for their subscription. For example, eHarmony users aren’t able to actively match, talk, or even like other profiles without being part of their subscription.
If you decide to cancel, you’ll need to repurchase the subscription to access these basic functionalities.
Last, if you decide to cancel and delete your profile, you will need to take the lengthy compatibility test all over again. The compatibility test takes roughly around 25-30 minutes to finish and can be very time-consuming.
Deleting your profile will make you go through that entire process again. We recommend you really consider all of these consequences before actively deleting your profile.
How To Cancel eHarmony On The Web
If you decide that you want to delete eHarmony, there are a few ways to do it. First, if you purchased your subscription on the web, here’s how to cancel.

It’s important to note, eHarmony has locked you in for your remaining payments. If you paid for 3 months, you must pay for those 3 months. As eHarmony mentions on their support page about cancellations:
Turning off the subscription will turn off auto-renewal. If you have questions about this process, contact eHarmony directly and talk to their support team.
How To Cancel eHarmony on Mobile
Canceling eHarmony on mobile is similar to how you would cancel any other purchase you’ve made on mobile.
Due to the fact, eharmony is sold on the app store, it goes through the app store guidelines for cancellations.
For subscriptions purchased through Apple, users must go through the cancellation process through iTunes.
Access Membership Status For Cancellation
We recommend you check your membership status to make sure that it’s completely canceled.
In order to access the membership status for cancellation, you’ll need to follow these steps:
- Log into your eharmony account
- Click the dropdown menu next to your profile picture
- Select “Data & Settings”
This will display your length of membership, date of purchase, and of course if you need to cancel your membership (shut off auto-renewal)
This is found on the web, so if you do need to access this information, find yourself a web browser or use a computer. This is the only way to access the data & settings menu to find your cancellation preferences.
We recommend you take time to really decide if you want to cancel eHarmony before actually making the decision. As mentioned, the compatibility test will need to be retaken again if you do decide to completely delete your membership.
If you had a bad experience with eHarmony, we recommend taking some time to use the app 1-2 hours a day to get the full experience with matches.
It may take weeks or even months to find quality matches. Patience is the key to dating apps, in order to attract the person of your dreams.
