How to Change Position in POF

Millions of people use the popular dating app Plenty of Fish to find potential matches in their area. Some move inevitably. If you have moved to a new city or a new country and want to continue using the app, you must change your profile’s location settings. If you are wondering how to do it, this article will show you.

What is POF?

POF (short for Plenty of Fish) is an online dating service founded in 2003. It is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and is open to users in selected countries around the world. The service is free to use, but also offers a premium membership. POF has been a member of The Match Group since 2015, which also owns OKCupid,, and Tinder.

Plenty of Fish currently has around 90 million users and generates revenue through ads and premium memberships. It is mostly popular in Canada, followed by other English-speaking countries. The service is also popular in Brazil, Spain, France, Denmark, Sweden, Mexico, Italy and Germany. POF offers its services in nine languages. Mobile apps are also available for Android, iPhone and Windows Phone platforms.

The service focuses on meaningful relationships and uses a variety of tools to profile its users and find suitable matches.

  1. The first is the Psychological Assessment tool, which claims to tell users what they really want versus what they say they want.
  2. Relationship Chemistry Estimator (POFCP) measures self-confidence, family orientation, self-control, social dependency/openness, and comfort to determine the potential level of chemistry between two users.
  3. POF uses the Relationship Needs Assessment tool to determine what the user really needs in a relationship. This tool also provides users with customized tips, action plans and strategies.
  4. Keeper tool allows users to check their compatibility with other users.

Why Change Location?

If you’ve moved to a new location permanently or are going on a long trip, it’s also a good idea to update the location in your Plenty of Fish profile. This is important because POF uses your location to match you with other people. Depending on where you are, your zip code or zip code is the primary part of your location information the site uses.

If you are moving or traveling abroad, the POF may not be available in the country you are traveling to or moving to. In this case, you won’t be able to change your location and you won’t be able to find local matches.

How to Change Your City, State and Zip Code

Changing your location in POF is quite easy and simple. Follow the steps below.

  1. Log into your Plenty of Fish account. If you are using a desktop or laptop computer, open the browser, go to the POF site and enter your username/email address and password. If you are using a mobile phone or tablet (Android, iOS, Windows), open the POF app and enter your username/email address and password.
  2. When you log in, the app/site will take you to the home page. Click/tap the “Edit Profile” button (depending on the platform you are using) in the upper right corner.
  3. On the “Edit Profile” page, under the “Basic Information” section, you’ll see a summary of your basic profile information. If you are on a desktop/laptop computer, the location information should be in the upper right corner. If you are using a mobile device, scroll down until you reach the location information section. Here you should see the “City”, “State” and “ZIP code” tabs respectively. Make the changes you want.
  4. Click/tap “Update Profile”.
