Why you should think about deleting your Adult Friend Finder account?

As with every other dating site, there are controversies surrounding Adult Friend Finder. And there are bound to be controversies when it’s an adult dating site. Let us take a look at some of these sketchy details that might make you want to get rid of your account and part ways with the platform for good.

Adult Friend Finder has been accused of committing systematic billing fraud on multiple occasions by its userbase. It was found that the company continuously kept billing its customers even after they had canceled their subscription services. And this was not due to some errors in the system or anything like that at all. The former employees of Adult Friend Finder claimed that this was by design and was the company’s standard policy. They also said that most of the customers didn’t even know they were getting billed for months on end even when they explicitly deleted their account. The company was subjected to a criminal indictment by the Federal Trade Commission(FTA) in 2014 when hundreds of civil claims were filed against the company for malpractice.

In May 2015, the site had a security breach conducted by the hackers associated with the Hell Forums. Personal information of more than four million users of the site was reportedly stolen. Then again in November 2016, the site was subjected to another security breach and hackers got access to their database containing usernames, e-mails, and passwords of users on the site. This breach exposed all such private information from Adult Friend Finder and other Friend Finder networks. The breach was said to have affected 300 million user accounts, including account data for 15 million accounts that had supposedly been deleted from the site.  And if that wasn’t enough, user passwords were not found to be encrypted at all, or hashed with the insecure and obsolete  SHA-1 hashing algorithm which is virtually useless.

And like any other dating site, there are bound to be fake profiles or accounts that try to fool you into thinking they are real. Some may even go as far as to scam you out of your money. So you need to be prepared to deal with bots and scammers if you were hoping to have a good time on the site.

If these facts made you change your mind about deleting your account, you can choose to permanently delete your account and part ways with the platform for good.
