FAQs | Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I make sure that all my identifying information is deleted after I delete my Ashley Madison account?

If you are still worried about them retaining your information, you can choose to switch all your personal information with random information. The data that the site retains after that will not be of any use to them. Since the site is unfortunately famous for data leaks, it is always advisable to use a throwaway account on the site that cannot be traced back to you.
