|1. Log off from your account. 2. Go to the main "Sign in" page. There's a search username option right there.|

|If you go to Google and type in "how do I search for a username on plenty of fish" the second our third link will take you to it... however I'm not sure if it's dependable because I couldn't find the person I'm looking for.... but maybe it will work for you...|
Fingers crossed for you!!!

|Yeah it's gone from mine too. But I have discovered that if you put the username in to the add friends tab at the bottom of your favourites page it will add the person to your favourites. So this way you can find someone from a username! :-)|

|Except at Match you can search by Keyword. They removed that over a year ago. POF has literally no idea how people search on here. They treat it like a more complicated Tinder.|

|It used to be a free feature, but I'm sure it's a paid feature now.|
Don't know if it will still be once Match.com gets done with "fixing" the site.

|We also used to be able to search for interests too, I miss that.|

|Just google "POF username search" and it directs you to the searching screen :)|

|I still have it on web and Windows app. I don't have it on iOS. I guess this will be an upgraded feature eventually SMH|

|Just search youtube for Username Search. Youll find an independent program, that will allow you to search for your past emailed username (pof received [browse by date]).|
I didnt think id find her again, but using the program, I did. There are plenty of fish out there, but im not just after any old fish.
POF only holds messages for 30 days, so this is a great way to reconnect, with lost connections.

|Hi sweetie , how are you :-)|
Posted: 3/28/2017 7:28:25 PM
|Unbelievable! It's not there!|
I used to be a paying member and I think you might be able to do it if you upgrade. Too bad they can't even bother their heads to tell us that!
Somehow I'm not in a big hurry to upgrade ...

|The username is no longer available and it is most likely due to the fact that Plenty of Fish was sold to Match.com|
One of the reasons I liked plenty of fish was that it didn't have all the scammers that match had but now it does have them and you can't report them anymore because in order to report them you have to have a conversation with them you can trace. Once these scammers realize that you are on to them they block you and you can't report them unless you made a deliberate point to write down their user names as soon as you realized they were scammers. Well, the truth is we are on this site to find a dating partner and to have to be so vigilant about scammers. Match.com operates very carelessly and POF used to have good vigilance over these matters but it is no longer the same ....sad.

False, you can still do a user name search. (just read this thread)

False, you can still report someone via the link on their profile and do not need to correspond with them.
Once these scammers realize that you are on to them they block you and you can't report them unless you made a deliberate point to write down their user names as soon as you realized they were scammers.
Why would you engage in a conversation with a scammer?
Just report and move on.
