If you want to take a break from online dating, pausing lets you temporarily hide your profile from Zoosk and still keep your profile, connections, and message history for when you come back.
When you pause your account:
- Your profile is hidden from Zoosk and won’t be shown to other Zoosk members until it's unpaused.
- You will keep your profile, connections, and message history.
- You won’t be able to receive messages or other communications from Zoosk members.
- You won’t receive emails or notifications from Zoosk or Zoosk members. However, you will still receive emails related to your subscription renewal and pausing/reactivating your account.
- If you’re a subscriber, your subscription will remain active.
