Coffee Meets Bagel is a mobile dating app that is slowly starting to make it to the ranks for Tinder, Bumbles, and Hinges on the mobile dating scene.

Its unique style of delivering matches to you and noon every single day is a twist on the traditional swiping method. However, if Coffee Meets Bagel isn’t the app for you, the deactivation and delete process is simple.

To delete Coffee Meets Bagel, click on your profile picture, go to settings, scroll to the bottom where the delete option is located, and permanently delete the account.

Deleting Coffee Meets Bagel

Compared to other mobile dating apps, Coffee Meets Bagel is easier to delete and deactivate. This mobile app has done a great job of being user-focused, and the user experience is often very smooth.

Coffee Meets Bagel Sign Up

To delete Coffee Meets Bagel, the user must first be logged into the account. Simply deleting the app from your phone is not enough to delete the profile from Coffee Meets Bagel.

Once you’ve logged into the account, there will be a picture of your face ( or whatever picture you’ve selected as your profile picture). Tap on this profile picture which will then introduce a sidebar that looks similar to this.

This is the menu screen that I will be referring to. This menu screen has all the settings and options that you’ll need on the app. Unlike other dating apps, Coffee Meets Bagel tucks this options menu in the screen, where it’s a bit hidden.

This is so you’ll focus more on the usage and dating part of the app rather than tinkering with the settings.

Once you open the settings screen, go to “settings,” located at the bottom of all options.

Once you select settings, it will open up a menu that looks something like this. This menu is pretty self-explanatory, as all of the options are described with ease.

Coffee Meets Bagel Delete

Scrolling all the way down to the bottom, you’ll see an option for a deleted account. Simply selecting this option will help you delete and deactivate your account from Coffee Meets Bagel.

However, we do want to warn you that deleting and deactivating your account means that it is gone forever. All of your information will be erased from their servers, and you will not be able to retrieve it. That means beans, matches, everything associated with the account. As their description states:

“If you delete your account, all of your info will be permanently erased. If you think you may want to use CMB in the future, tap cancel and put your account on hold to take a break instead.”

We really encourage you to think about deleting Coffee Meets Bagel before actually hitting the red permanently delete account button.

If you decide to delete the account, it will simply bring you back to the login screen, where you’ll have to add another account to start your dating process again.

❤️ Pro Tip: If you’re sick of finding people who are just looking for one-night stands, we recommend trying eHarmony.

It’s one of the highest-rated online dating apps in the world. eHarmony users are actually actively looking for relationships. Give it a try here for free and see if you can tell the difference.

What Happens When You Delete Coffee Meets Bagel

The account will be deleted forever, and you will not be able to access any of the following:

  • Matches
  • Conversations
  • Pictures
  • Beans

You’re essentially wiping out the entire account and saving none of the work you put into it. If you’re going to delete the account, our best advice is to get all of the information from the matches you want to take with you.

This includes phone numbers, Snapchat accounts, or any third-party apps you still want to talk to your matches.

If you happen to find someone that you want to date, that’s why you want to delete the app; we applaud you for taking this first step into a relationship.

Can I Put My Account On Hold?

Coffee Meets Bagel allows the user to put their account on hold; that way, they don’t have to completely and permanently delete the app.

Putting an account on hold is beneficial for those who maybe have too many matches and are overwhelmed, or if they’ve just met someone, they really like and want to put their account away for a while.

To put the account on hold, go to the settings menu located in the top left. Select settings from the menu.

Next to the “active” selection on the top option, you’ll find a “go on hold” button. Simply selecting this option will allow the user to go on hold for the time being.

This option is a great alternative for users that do not want to delete their profile but don’t want to be seen by other users. As Coffee Meets Bagel states, you can continue chatting with your current matches without getting any new connections.

As mentioned, this is great for users that maybe have met someone and want to talk to them exclusively or for someone that may feel overwhelmed by all of the matches they’re getting.

Simply selecting to go on hold, we recommend, is the easier option for the user, as you won’t lose any of your beans, matches, or conversations.

If you’ve moved to the point where you met someone, and it’s the right time to move on from the app, then we recommend deleting it and starting from scratch.

First dates aren’t always perfect, and meeting someone online isn’t always what we expect on the first date. This is why putting the account on hold is the best option.

Coffee Meets Bagel Deletion Recap

Deleting Coffee Meets Bagel is easy to do once the settings icon is located. Scroll to the bottom and hit delete account, which will completely evaporate your account from the Coffee Meets Bagel world.

If you’re looking to rejoin the dating app, you’ll need to make a completely new account and sign up for the app. If you hesitate to do this, put your account on hold and decide what you want to do next.
