How to Search by Name on POF

If you want to search for someone by first name on Plenty Of Fish there are two ways you can do this.

The Google Search Approach

:
  1. Go to google.com.
  2. In their search box type site:pof.com personsname. Obviously, you replace personsname with the persons name.

Our Username Search Tool

:

The POF Username Search mentioned at the top can also be used to search for someone by a name instead of a username. The only issue is most people are not going to have their last name anywhere in their profile so if you are looking for someone with a very common name you are going to get a lot of search results.

Search by Interests on Plenty Of Fish

Not really sure if Plenty Of Fish has this built in to their website. If they do it is not obvious to find. Again, Google is our second best friend in this search (we ARE your BEST friend, aren't we?).

  1. Go to google.com.
  2. In their search box type inurl:pof.com/interests/ the hobby/interest. Obviously, you replace the hobby/interest with the actual hobby or interest. So for example if you are looking people on POF who are interested in tennis you would type into the Google search box inurl:pof.com/interests/ the tennis.

Search POF by Email

This one we have not figured out a hack for. This is probably not possible because:

  • Almost no one is going to put their email address directly in their dating profile.
  • Email addresses DO show up in the profile source code, except they are hash encrypted.

To view the persons hash encrypted email address on Plenty Of Fish it appears, at the time of this writing, you have to be logged in to see this ...

  1. Go to the profile of interest.
  2. Right click anywhere on the page, just make sure your mouse is not over an image.
  3. From the pop up menu that appears click View Source.
  4. Press CTRL+F on your keyboard which will bring up your web browsers search box.
  5. Enter "hashemail":. You will see something that looks like "hashemail": "d77b8fd678b67d8ed9cce01ed550520e154d89c2e57afcaeef32b208d"
