Contributing members with an active Couchsurfing account, can deactivate their profiles from the Account & Settings page on the website.
In order to deactivate or cancel your account, please click on the "Deactivate Your Account" button at the bottom of the page.
Deactivating your account will completely hide your profile and you will no longer receive emails from Couchsurfing. If you would like to return to the site in the future, you can always reactivate your account by logging in to the site again and confirming that you'd like to reactivate it.
Not able to login to deactivate your account? Please contact the support team with a link to the profile and they will be able to help with the deactivation.
