Plenty of Fish or simply known as POF is a dating website, and when uk.pof.com is down this has a huge affect. There have been times when the site goes offline, and its 3 million active daily users are left without the ability to find their perfect date.

It is very rare POF goes down but when it does its chaos, social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are inundated with posts and tweets from concerned members. Most of the time they are just wondering what is wrong with the service, and this is why IDRN (Is Down Right Now) UK is here.

Not only can members have issues with the Plenty of Fish website going down, they could also have problems with iPhone, BlackBerry and Android apps. Twitter and of course visiting the site direct will let you know if POF is down, but you can now come direct here and share your problem, as well as communicate with other POF members.

    More payment issues. Have been on POF a few months, the next three months payment has been made and I’ve lost Premium features. Going back and forwards with emails: signed out and back in, deleted app and reloaded. Nothing. It’s extremely frustrating as it takes them hours to reply to messages. Been a week of sheer frustration and I’m no further forward.

  • Paul

    And this is precisely why POF, that men don’t pay their precious money to “UPGRADE” I certainly wouldn’t, not for a poorly performing, unreliable platform that is full of fake female profiles and “private companies” proclaiming that they want to meet us, and where females can post as little as they like,whereas males have to jump through hoops. Its why you are the FREE platform of choice and other platforms can charge.

  • TheMadScotsmanfromAberdeen

    Been down in Dundee, Scotland, since this morning (20th May 2019) ….. still down as at 8pm. Bloody disaster if a site.

  • Kieron

    There maybe plenty of fish in the sea, but damn there isn’t any good servers because when i am online it keeps logging me out, log back it and nothing again.

  • Craig

    The POF app is down for me, OK in that I mean the login part is having issues. Been trying to log in for a while now and nothing. Probs maintenance right!!

  • Martin

    When I try to enter my Plenty of Fish username it is not being recognised, which is a pain. I have internet connection so it’s not that, basically it is down here in Finsbury Park London area.

  • TheMadScotsmanfromAberdeen

    Is there anyone else on here posting comments about POF or just me? Surely it must be down for a lot more people than just me???????

  • TheMadScotsmanfromAberdeen

    No ……. you CAN’T get a hold of “Support” in any way, shape or form. The site is autonomously-operated by pre-set algorhythms. There is no ‘real’ contactable human-being, so don’t know where you’re getting your information from!!!!!!!!

  • TheMadScotsmanfromAberdeen

    LOL ……. went on the site ‘Is it Down Just Now’ to check on the latest POF outage ……. AND IT WAS DOWN!!!!!!!!!
    Ya’ couldn’t make it up ………. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!

  • TheMadScotsmanfromAberdeen

    No mate – while there may be a ‘Contact Us’ prompt on the site, you will never, EVER get a hold of a ‘real human-being’ there simply because the site is operated autonomously. All done by pre-programmed algorithms. Only thing anyone can do is to simply wait until it comes back on-line.

  • TheMadScotsmanfromAberdeen

    Been down for 2 days in Dundee, Scotland now …….. mind you, I’ve known that crap site to be down for TWO WEEKS. Waste of time …… you’re better-off paying a subscription to Match.Com or some other reputable site ……… funny how THEY never EVER crash, huh??????

  • Tom

    Support can be gained from contact listed

  • Kal3a

    Hi i have trouble to logging in …thanks

  • MadMac

    Been down for me 5 days now …… not recognising any of my login details. (Dundee City, Scotland, UK, 25/7/2017) …….. freakin’ pain in the butt, after me successfully amassing quite a few females too ….. DOH!!!!!

  • Melissa

    Not really had any major problems at all, yes the site can get a little slow now and then but at least the website is not totally offline like a few months ago.

  • Melissa

    Plenty of Fish is down yet again. Nightmare, this time its the app.

  • Joe

    Yeah its down for me Kate.

  • Kate

  • Grip

  • Grip

  • Helen Audrey Jenkins

    Is POF down for everyone? I cant get on it today

  • Grip

    Hi there, took me a while to find this sorry. I posted as a guest before i signed up. I put my email address on by mistake, could you kindly remove the mail or edit it off please. Thanks

  • Mark

    What is the problem Grip? Hope all is well.

  • Gabby

    After a year of no much luck I am finally started chatting with a really nice guy yesterday. We agree to meet up next time he comes to my town but POF is down. My questionn is: is POF going to be back on or is it gone for good because of Match taking over or any other reason?

  • Mark Griffiths

    Could the moderator of this discussion contact me asap please??

  • Stig

    Had enough of POF ,everyone just ignores me anyway .not a single message ! Bet if I put up a pic of some muscle bound hunk I wound be inundated , but ‘looks don’t matter ‘, huh . Lies !

  • Jennii

    my plentyoffish login is not working, is the service down for maintenance or something?

  • Kevin

    I can’t upload pics.. I get an error message error -1

  • Ekhaniyere Ona

    I can’t log in into my account all day. Is plenty more fish server down? This is really frustrating.


    It is my understanding that POF has encountered a major hacking job that completely destroyed it’s entire operating system. It cannot be found on the Web because it’s DNS has been badly scrambled. It quite possible that POF is finished for good…kaput. It is not expected to be repaired any time soon…it is down all across the USA and Canada.

  • Cat

  • Mitch

    Plenty of Fish, i think not because i have trouble logging in, then when i am in i cannot open my full profile. Am I actually destined to be single?

  • POF

    Undergoing repairs and checks to the entire sight. Sorry for the inconvenience to all users.
    Hope to be back up by the end of this week. If you have indecent pictures on your profile you may find you have no account when you return.

  • Jane

  • Graham

    Is anyone having issues trying to access POF?

  • Orson

    Plent of Fish website is surely down because it is not opening when I try to login. Even the main website before trying to sign in is not loading up for me.

    POF not working, no internet connection please try again, that is the message i keep getting.

  • Loraine

    My app keeps shutting down on me each time i try to open my messages. How can I check my POF if it keeps crashing, this is silly.

  • Perry

    Why do i have to keep creating a new account, this is stupid now. Time to move onto another similar app.

  • Drew

    I created a new account and it has been deleted, I cannot seem to login to this account anymore. I did nothing wrong. It is just happened on the app version, because when i do online via laptop all is ok. App is useless.

  • Kittie

    Damn I was bored last week, I could have had dinner lol.

  • Porter

    I was waiting for my date and the only way i could contact her was through POF, but I could not access the site last week. This was the .com site im not too sure about this UK one. Did I get stood up or did she message me and i could receive it so she just canceled.

  • Orson

    POF UK is rather slow at times, I end up scrolling through and the scrolling is painstakingly slow.

  • Harriot

    Things with the site is all good at the moment, but last week was a complete nightmare when the site went down.
