Having an affair on Ashley Madison is no longer the taboo it once was. The online dating site gained popularity with the tagline “Life is short, have an affair” and aimed to provide a confidential environment for married or committed people seeking extramarital relationships. While the website has had a few security mishaps and privacy concerns in the past, it has made substantial improvements over the last several years.

In the event you want to cancel your account with Ashley Madison, it is important to remember that it is not a simple process. You must prepare your account for deletion before you do so, including deleting public photos and messages, removing third-party logins and confirming your subscription cancellation. Additionally, you should monitor your credit card statement to ensure that any unused credits are canceled.

To delete your Ashley Madison account, you will need to log in to the site and select 'Manage Profile' from the left side menu. Then click 'Deactivate Your Profile' and provide a reason for your request in the pop-up window. Once your account is deactivated, you will not be able to access it again until you choose to reactivate it.

You can also opt to have your Ashley Madison account permanently deleted by following the instructions here. This option is permanent and irreversible, so it's best to use with caution. If you decide to delete your account, it will wipe all of your personal information and message history, including any uploaded photos.
