How can I Hide or Delete my profile?


Members who have a Couchsurfing account, can deactivate it from the Account & Settings page on the website. If you do not have access to this page, please contact us here and our team can help you deactivate your account. 

Account Deactivation

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 choose to deactivate your account and 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. 

Account Deletion

If you would like to fully and permanently delete your account and your personal data from Couchsurfing, please contact our support team and include a profile link along with your request. You can find more details about how we use and store your data along with other important information in our Privacy Policy.


Please note that our Terms of Use prohibit members from creating another profile on Couchsurfing.
