Tinder - Dating & New Friends App Comments & Reviews
Tinder - Dating & New Friends Positive Reviews
Too Many Fake Accounts!Tinder is by far one of the top dating apps that most people download. But it doesn’t mean it’s the best. The only good thing about it is that I had a few dates here and there. But it took me FOREVER to find someone legit because this app , on a guys point of view, is infested with soooo many fake accounts! A lot of young girls are on there promoting there OnlyFans account and Snapchat premiums. As well as fake spammers that make fake profiles with other woman’s pictures. I like that new verified check they added but it’s not enough. Tinder needs to step it up more on blocking these fake accounts. There has to be a system or a new way to catch/remove these spammers/advertisers.
Other than that, it’s quite legit. You have to get a boost here now and then to actually get noticed. But I don’t blame em’ cause they have to make money some how. That’s why I give this app a 3 stars because it can be a lot better for us guys if they can remove and block these fake accounts.
Badoo and these other dating apps went downhill because of these spammers/fake accounts. Please, Tinder, do not become like them..Lord ErlexarVersion: 11.31.0
Great app hypocritical reporting and banning processHowzit gonna be that women on this app can literally solicit their pornography. But when a guys says a perverted pick up line they can be banned permanently. Along with that if you report somebody for spam don’t you think that that should just be an immediate match delete rather than a ban that’s pretty simple to do. Look I might sound like a neck bearded simp but at least I gave the app a try. I had over 46 matches in the first week which is in my opinion alright but I had over 50 likes that I never got to see. I might have left some people high and dry but I’m pretty sure if I actually had the time to go out on a date I’d ask but I run a business and people spending their day on this app need to get out meet someone naturally. Which imma do because I was literally in the process of deleting my account before I was permanently banned which is ironic because what if I wanna get back on after a break up. That’s insensitivity on the app and it’s users part along with customer service. If you only send an automated message and have robotic response to issues I’m pretty sure people aren’t going to be generally pleased by the results..NegotiationforthenationVersion: 12.12.0
Could always be betterLet me preface this by saying I’ve used a large amount of dating apps such as OKCupid, Plenty of Fish, Hinge, Meetme, and etc. over the span of 8 years but Tinder is probably the go to app; it’s fast, easy and pretty much condenses all that I want from most other apps into a simpler format. However, with this app being infamous for mainly hookups or casual encounters, the pickings for someone more substantial (platonic or romantic) is slim to say the least. As well, like in other apps, the amount of empty profiles or spam accounts overwhelms the amount of real people. I do wish that there was a sort of requirement of word count in each profile so that if someone IS serious about matching, they have a (somewhat) cohesive bio to show this. While I’ll always enjoy the interface and the simplicity of Tinder and don’t personally see myself off the app anytime soon (especially given the time I’m writing this) I do wish there were a more comprehensive way to weed out the casual from serious or the hookups from genuine friendships WITHOUT having to download yet another app..MsGenkiVersion: 11.29.0

Tinder - Dating & New Friends Negative Reviews
LGBTQ+ and POC beware. TERRIBLE support.I’ve been banned from this app for no reason (twice), I’ve emailed asking for the reason why I was banned (both times) to no avail and there is no appeal process available “at this time”. They haven’t had an appeal process for years, maybe even ever.
My main problem is: if I was banned, why can’t anyone tell me why? Customer support has NO idea why that happened? Then why was I banned at all? I went to Google trying to see if anyone else has been having this problem and came to find out, a lot of LGBTQ+ have been banned for no reason. I put on my profile that I am a bisexual woman. I did not have anything offensive on my profile and did what anyone else does on this app which is swipe and talk to new people. I’m of age, I don’t discriminate or bully, and I treat others the way I’d like to be treated. The support is terrible and there is no contact number to call for such situations. Customer support closes my tickets before answering the questions I have for them, which is why I’ve come to hate this app. They don’t actually care about the people who use it.
Main takeaway: It’s overall a good app to meet new people, but customer support is terrible and they will not tell if you why you’ve been banned (which a lot of people, even close friends seem to be). There is no appeal process and they won’t help you. So, good luck staying under their radar. If they don’t like how you look or don’t fit their status quo, you’ll be banned..Haha.anayaVersion: 12.14.0
Frustrating bugsThis app is the most frustrating thing, Since downloading this app I have had 5 of the matches I had been talking to regularly completely disappear without reason, I figured I had been unmatched only for them to reappear in my matches days or even weeks later, and the entire conversation erased (for me, not for them). For 2 people who I had contacted everything looked normal on their end, except I had no other way to contact them. Is is super frustrating when you don’t have a way to reach other person due to a bug!! It also sends the totally wrong message and causes a lot of confusion. I’ve had this happen to me mid conversation as well. This is so unacceptable. It’s hard to tell if Tinder is negligently buggy or if this is the result of some gross social engineering experiment, I have no clue, but c’mon at this point it’s happened too frequently not to question the motives of a company that profits off you being single. If you think I’m going to pony up for a company that might be willfully making it difficult to get in touch with people you genuinely hit it off with or seed doubts about someone you are getting to know better, you are mistaken. I will not be renewing anything.
As expected my match shows up again days later with the conversation deleted from my phone but I can view it on my computer. Fix this!!! This is so wrong, what a sad excuse for a messaging platform. Totally wholly incredibly unacceptable. Straight up..SillyhuminsVersion: 12.8.0
Banned and got no helpOkay, so I recently redownloaded the app and had it for about two days. I even made plans to meet someone on it. It worked fine this morning and then I logged in this afternoon and was greeted with: “Your account was banned.” I’m really upset honestly. I’m worried that the guy will think I ghosted him and I don’t want to make him feel bad. I looked through everything carefully and know for a fact that I didn’t violate any terms or guidelines. I didn’t get a specific explanation for why I was banned or even a specific guideline that I supposedly broke. Also, the appeals system (or lack thereof) is important. People need to know specifically why their account has been banned and there should be an appeals process. What if there was a glitch in the system? An innocent person could be forever banned with no way to know why or get their account back. I won’t tell people that they shouldn’t download it, it’s one of the most popular apps out there and it’s pointless to advise against it. I am, however, very hurt and frustrated over the lack of support, explanation, and this horrible situation in general. Something is broken and needs to be fixed efficiently and in a timely manner. If this has happened to you, please say something because I know I’m not the only one and the more people who speak up, the more likely tinder is to help. There simply isn’t a great replacement for tinder and I would like to let that guy know that I didn’t ghost him..YsklefVersion: 12.7.0
App doesn’t function as advertised, full of bots/spam.The app allows you to set filters for age and distance, then completely disregards them. I am in my mid 20’s, and want to meet other people in their 20’s. I have my age limit set from 21-27, yet every other profile I see is for a 19 year old, 18 year old, or 30 year old.
Additionally, I have my distance set to <30 miles, and have turned the “global” setting off (because if I’m looking to actually meet up, why would I want to match with someone 6,000 miles away?) and STILL, just about every other person is outside my distance radius. I live in a very populated city area, I know there are more people within 30 miles of me but tinder has decided I don’t want what I say I want, instead I apparently want what they want me to see. I used to pay for the app, but never again unless some serious quality improvements are made. Showing me people outside my radius doesn’t make me more likely to use tinder, it makes me think tinder is broken. Same goes for the age thing.
I have also reported easily over 100 bots/spam accounts and it still is a huge issue - a liiitle bit more verification or something would be great.
As it stands, bumble and hinge are much better services. Bumble is getting greedy, locking formerly free features behind a paywall, and Hinge doesn’t have as many users as Tinder or Bumble, but as far as the experience goes? The other two are much better than Tinder..JambakeVersion: 12.4.0
This app was in the end a waste of my time and money (oh yeah, I subscribed multiple times to their advanced features to see who swiped on me because why not?)
Beware any newcomer to this app that this is a fairly common issue on getting banned for no reason! Enjoy it whilst you can....Ghosted by TinderVersion: 12.3.0
Lack of user supportI’ve had an account with tinder for many years now. It’s been a great experience and I’ve met some friends and even had a few relationships from it over that time period. Yesterday I was on it and chatting with a few matches and then was off it for a few hours, when I went back on because I had a new message notification the app said my account had been banned but with no explanation for why it had been banned. I then reached out to customer service only to be told that they “can’t offer and appeal process at this time” and that my account is banned for good, still with no explanation of the cause. When I responded specifically asking for why it had been banned I was told that “Unfortunately, we cannot provide any more detailed information at this time”. I don’t understand how an app can has such poor customer service or lack of service to help users when this happens. I’ve gone over the guidelines and have no idea what would have caused this ban in the first place. Especially now that those matches probably think I’ve ghosted them which then makes me look bad and the simplest solution would be for tinder to implement a system to help their users. Until that happens I suggest anyone reading this to use an alternative app because from what I’m reading this happens to a lot of people at random times with no warning and no chance of getting it fixed/finding a solution..Ggrant_gg_Version: 12.10.0

Why take requests if you don’t make appealsAfter not using my account for a couple days I opened the app to check my messages, only to find out that my account had been banned. I read all the terms and guidelines to see what i could possible have violated, and came up with nothing. I submitted a request to appeal the ban, only to get an automated email saying that they aren’t taking appeals “at this time” and that my account was banned for breaking community guidelines (and didn’t even specify which I had violated). Has tinder ever taken appeals? Because from what I have read it appears not. Why even make it an option to submit a request if nothing will change? It seems like a massive waste of time on both ends. I am apparently not the only person that this has happened to either. Tinder needs to fix their customer service to accept appeals and to talk to a real person about issues with one’s account. The handling of the situation on Tinder’s part was terrible. I had a lot of fun using the app when I did go on it and am extremely frustrated that I was banned without any reason or warning. How is it even possible to violate community guidelines when you’re not actively using the app and don’t have a fallacious or promotional profile? In addition, I am still getting message notifications from the app, even though my account is banned and it signed me out. Absolutely mind-boggling to me..SamirivposVersion: 12.3.0
Oh boyJust recently got out of a relationship and decided to dive back into the dating app world, and all I have to say is wow. Tinder has really slipped. What used to be a brilliantly simple and effective dating app has turned into a frustrating, convoluted, pay-walled mess. For Tinder to be even remotely useful, you have to pay for it. And once you do, you’re allowed features that are literally free on other apps. Wanna see who likes you? You’re going to have to pay more a month than you do on a Netflix subscription for that. Btw, Hinge does that for free. Wanna leave a comment on someone’s picture? Surely you can do that with the Gold membership, right? Nope. Gotta shell out even more money for ~platinum~. Guess who also does it for free? You got it. Hinge (and I think OKC too). And even after emptying your wallet on one of their higher subscription tiers, you still only get one boost a week, and you’re still hounded with pop ups every 10 minutes to try out their creepiest feature - the super like. All of this on top of the inherent dating app negatives (ghosting, catfishing, creeps, excessive filters, etc) and you’re in for a miserable ride. Save yourself the stress and money and try literally any app other than Tinder. Or just go to a bar. You’ll spend about the same amount of money but at the very least you’ll get a good buzz..FazzieATXVersion: 12.10.1
Banned for no reason???I’ve had to make 4 different accounts during the time I’ve tried to use this app bc I keep getting banned for reasons I cannot figure out and that we’re never explained. None of my photos were any more revealing than cleavage peeking out of my shirt, and the most explicit thing I mentioned was that I was looking for hookups on a HOOKUP APP. When you get banned you don’t have any way to appeal, any info as to why so you can avoid it should you make a new account, and you can no longer attach your phone number, email, or Apple account should you make a new profile later, meaning unless you change your Apple ID you can’t get a subscription for your new profile. And if you were talking to someone on the site, unless you have already given them your alt contact info they will have no idea where you went or how to contact you. The issues have been going on for literal YEARS without anyone trying to fix or address them and the only reason I’ve even TRIED to remake my account is bc they have a serious monopoly on the hookup app market; there’s plenty of other apps without these issues but almost no one uses them. With the sheer number of users on their app and the boatloads of money they make off the almost mandatory subscriptions, you would think they could put in a little more effort to fix these long-standing issues..WinglessFishVersion: 12.8.0
Men: just say no. not even once.I know it’s tempting and you want to use tinder, but wait a minute man it’s not worth it. Even for pretty attractive guys, it will extremely difficult to find matches and it will destroy your self esteem. Tinder algorithms make this problem even worse. Even if you think you don’t care, you’ll end up feeling terrible about yourself even if you’re a good guy. Academic research on the apps show that top ~20% most attractive guys get almost all of the like and matches, like the vast vast majority, and that women users rank ~80% of men as below average. So essentially if you are 80th percentile or above, top 20+% of all men your age in attractiveness, hot and built, you will do okay. For the other 80% of us average and above average guys, just don’t join, don’t let it ruin your self esteem, don’t be a simp.
and that’s assuming you don’t get scammed. Lots and lots of women on these apps pretending they want to date or meet up with you and then they convince you to send them “half the money for the hotel” over Venmo or “Uber money to come over” or whatever and then they block you and you never hear from them again. Come on guys, don’t be simps. Don’t send women money, ESPECIALLY if you’ve never met her in person. If she wants money and you haven’t met her in person yet, it a scam always always always. Maybe a real person, doesn’t matter, still a scam.Justin MummaVersion: 12.8.0
Tinder is a scamI wish I’d have read the other reviews before paying for the “Gold” package. I recently went through a break up and considering I’m not from the place I am now living I thought I’d jump on Tinder and meet some people. I literally was only trying to meet people for friendship. Things are going okay, I’ve met a couple cool people, shared some music, seems all good, open the app up about 4-5 days later: YOUR ACCOUNT HAS BEEN BANNED. For absolutely no reason at all. I read every single word it the terms of agreement and the guidelines, I did not violate a single one. I was never disrespectful to anyone, if someone never responded to my “hello” or stopped responding when we were messaging back and forth I wouldn’t send another message, I wasn’t even on the app to find hook ups in the first place. Tinder is operating outside the lines of good business practice. You can’t contact them in any meaningful way whatsoever, they have no appeal process, nothing. Tinder is a sham. Apple should be ashamed of themselves for even allowing them in the App Store. I have now read through hundreds of reviews, Reddit and Quora posts and posts elsewhere explains this exact same situation. Tinder is banning paying customers for no reason, with no explanation and keeping their money. They are taking advantage of people simply looking to meet other people. Tinder is trash..JunkMonster86Version: 12.4.0
Tinder BanI’ve been using tinder for years. I’ve never had any issues with it. Two days ago my account randomly disappeared from the app. My account disappeared and neither my Facebook (which was connected to it), phone number, or email were recognized by tinder. I contact costumer support and they give me a few options. That’s when I remember I’m also connected to the app through my laptop. I check and my account still exists. Somehow that brings back my account on the mobile app. Problem solved right? Last night I match with a person, reach out to them. They reply with a rude response so I report them and they’re unmatched. Today I go on to the app to discover I’ve somehow been banned. No reason given. The only connection I could think was the random glitch two days before or me reporting someone for rude behavior. Strangely enough my account still exists on my computer so I’m assuming this is another glitch. I have Tinder Platinum for another week so this makes the problem more annoying. Based on the recent reviews other people our getting banned. I hope this gets resolved or the app makes a statement. My advice if you’re planning on using Tinder avoid paying for a description on the chance you’re banned out of nowhere. At least until the app recognizes there are issues and attempts to fix them..Promicin92Version: 12.11.1
Banned for no reasonUpdate: I’m afraid I also have been banned for no reason. I used to read these reviews and roll my eyes like people can’t be banned for no reason — must have done something. Nope. I’ve been permanently banned for absolutely nothing. I’m never even remotely mean or inappropriate. It must be an automated system when someone claims anything. Which is not a business I want to support. Maybe an ex saw me or something. After 6 years and many subscriptions, tinder has lost me permanently. Sad to say but it’s ironically not my choice ———————— Used to be decent. Now they’re giving out free passport apparently? But you can’t control if you swipe on people genuinely local, or those using passport “pretending” to be local actually 8k miles away. So now, 19/20 swipes are from random profiles around the world. Different languages, countries, with high language barrier and zero intention to come to your area. It has completely ruined the entire experience and made it impossible to use tinder for what it was created to do — get to know people around you to find a partner / friends. Not make virtual pen pals who are messing around. Add in the horrific allegations about their CEO, their horrible customer service, and pathetic squeeze for money, this is how a five star app became useless, nearly overnight..Da SaberVersion: 12.10.1
Terrible AppTo start things off Tinder is filled with bots, every second match I get in tinder is some “girl” trying to give you a massage and send you to a website. They don’t do any background checks on the people who join to make sure they are human. Secondly they spam it with advertisements and every 7th person you swipe on is an ad. Thirdly the amount of times it tells you, “you need to upgrade to get women to match with you” is incredibly annoying. Fourth, if you swipe right on everyone on the app Tinder actually throttles how many people you can match with. The first day I ran a test and swiped on every girl, I managed to go through about 40 women before it said I’m out of swipes. Next day I do it and get about 20. Now when I load the app I swipe on about 4 women before I have to upgrade my account because Ive ran out of swipes. It’s very unfair and flawed. Lastly they have these stupid “swipe surges” and other random events that “guarantee you’ll
match with someone.” Ive gone to about 4 of these events (and by go I mean had the app open) and haven’t matched with anyone, and yes I know it’s all about appearances, and I wouldn’t say I’m ugly nor attractive but still. This app is a huge scam, waste of time, try something like Bumble or Facebook Dating. 1000% better than this trash app..Jay'sCraftVersion: 12.14.0
I have a very serious complaint.After years of having a tinder account and speaking only positive things of it, I have been banned wrongfully. I know exactly what got me banned. My account name was Boom. I had in my bio, "Who needs pickup lines? Try and roast me instead. Just know that I'll roast back." Now, the word "roast" in this context, by definition, means, "subject to GOOD-NATURED ridicule." Now I matched with a woman who went by the name of Echo. Echo tried to roast me by asking if I was either a "men's rights activist" or "really into anime." I proceeded to ask if that was a roast, to which she assured me it was. SHE THEN ASKED ME TO ROAST HER BACK. I then said she looked like Roz from Monsters Inc, which again, is a GOOD-NATURED roast. If I thought she was a young lady that didn't appeal to me, then I wouldn't have swiped right in the first place. Obviously, this means that it was a light-hearted, good-natured comment, but one that Echo took as an insult to her very being. She then proceeded to talk about how she was comparing me to "Nazis" and a "porn freak." Those comments sound a lot harsher than me comparing her to a fictional character. Why I was the one being banned for this is beyond me, but in this situation, I feel like I have been wrongfully banned, when what I said wasn't nearly as bad as what she said. Please review the conversation again..DhrdhyijhVersion: 11.23.0
Getting banned for life with no detailed explanation or refundEventually you will get banned for life with the only explanation is that you violated their terms of service. No warning and no indication of what you supposedly did. If you are a paying Member, and you get banned they keep your money with no refund. With people easily offended, and the ease to report another Member on the app, just stating in your profile that you’re “super straight” will eventually trigger some people as offensive and will report you as offensive behavior and you will get banned for life. Of course you have to be a match to report someone, but people can match just for the purpose of reporting you because they are offended by information in your profile; political views, race, age, sexuality, and once matched, report you as offensive. Also they are shady on their Membership costs and overcharge more than what they quote. Before I became a paying Member, I would get pop ups of their Membership packages (months/cost). First time I bought a 6mo gold package and was charged a little more than the cost quoted in the pop up. Next Membership I upgraded to 6mo platinum and was charged over $160 (which was substantially more than the amount quoted in the pop up) and I was banned a week later..1stTymeWritingA-reviwVersion: 12.11.0
I got banned for no reasonI don’t understand the terms and policy of this app what so ever. I was banned for no reason. All of my photos are appropriate and my bio did not have anything close to being worthy of being banned.
It seems like tinder has a very flawed system in which it bans whoever it likes without giving any warning or notifications on why you were banned. This is an abuse of power right here from an app that has too much power. You can’t even appeal the reason why you were banned. It just doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve had my profile since 2015. I have deleted it every now and then to take a break from it. But redownloading it recently and have been using it for the past week, everything was fine. Until today, this afternoon I went onto the app to find out I was banned.
If this is how Tinder works and does things, by asking for personal information, wanting a bio and having you do so much to make a profile, just seems like a huge breach of privacy and an abuse of power.
I recommend anyone that wants to use this app, to not even download it. Because the amount of times I’ve seen my friends use this app, just to get banned for no reason, kind of blows my mind. Again, I highly suggest no one downloads this app at all..SeekAndDes7roy2Version: 12.9.0
Negative Stars - the app constantly gives you the same people and routinely deletes your accountDon’t even bother... the app doesn’t work, at all. You’re gonna spend all your time swiping through the same profiles because they’re either fake, or the app doesn’t register your swipes/selections. At all. We’re talking weeks of use, and you’ll still get the same profiles you already wasted your time swiping on day 1, and multiple times (sometimes in a single day) - it’s that bad. With cell service and a strong internet connection.
That’s if you’re lucky enough to keep an account. Tinder has now autologged me out and deleted every trace of 3 different accounts, totally unrecoverable. To add, I can’t even imagine the amateurism it requires to have an app so completely broken and to not even have a way to contact support to resolve any of your issues, that are conveniently unaddressed on their “support forums”. Forget it, lol, there are a million better, and more time efficient, ways to find a partner than wasting your time on an app that doesn’t even work... and is more focused on physiologically profiling (and profiting off) you and selling you a premium product (of a service that already doesn’t work??) than providing the service it claims it does.Anon8293929Version: 11.29.0
Waste of money. Hinge or Bumble is better.I hope the developers read this. I pay for Tinder Gold ($30/month, I will be unsubscribing soon). This is most expensive “paid” version of this app. I regularly “match” with paid advertisements who look like young single women. These are Paid advertisements facilitated / sold by Tinder. Should a paying “gold” user be getting hit with adds? No. Additionally, I regularly match/see women who are all 80-99 miles away. I have my radius set to 40 miles. I’m not interested in matching with someone who lives two states and a three hour drive away. Also, about 10-20% of the female profiles on Finder are fake/scammers who immediately want you to add some obscure social media account name that doesn’t match their Tinder name or picture. The app also crashes frequently (yes, it’s fully updated). If you’re looking to spend money on a dating app, you’d be better off spending money on Hinge or Bumble. Use the free version if Tinder if you like, but they don’t deserve your money. Also, I have heard from other people who are seemingly arbitrarily banned without any way to challenge or contest the ban. I guess that you can’t be accused of having terrible customer service if you don’t have any customer service to begin with....Objective interviewsVersion: 11.27.0
Glitched for two days, then banned out of nowhere.I’ve had Tinder Gold for a couple of years now. I took myself out of the stack about a month ago, and came back over the weekend. It resumed without a hitch until Tuesday. I found that my matches and messages were fluctuating, and that it stopped showing profiles in areas either at home or where I work. I just assumed the servers were slow/lagging. I got home from work tonight, and I started to see profiles again. I thought things were back up and running again. I hop on about an hour later and bam, I’m banned. From what I’ve read on my app and trying to log in on the computer, I’ve all of a sudden violated their terms of service somehow. It’s not like I can get a hold of anyone, as their emails are electronically responded to by bots, and after reading through some of these reviews, their App Store responses are the same. I’ve canceled my subscription which was coming up for renewal at the end of the month, so I suppose timing couldn’t have been better for me. Between this, the increasingly fake(snap, insta follows, sugar babies, cashapp/Venmo requesting) profiles, and the clear dead end when it comes bans and customer service/support, it’s been eye opening for sure. Best of luck everyone..[email protected]Version: 11.23.0
Tinder needs an appeals process ASAP-Banned for no reasonI have been using tinder for years with no problem , and in the last week i decided to delete my account and make a new one so it could be refreshed. I feel like i was not getting as many likes or matches are i could. So i did that. I create my profile and everything is fine, then i go to sleep and wake up this morning to my account being banned for no reason. I didn’t do anything vulgar or post and bad pictures. My bio was not bad. And simply stated that I’m from London. I didn’t do anything to anyone. Had no conversations on this new account and It had been less than one day. If i can’t get my account back, I’ll have to leave a negative review unfortunately because I’ve seen countless other examples of people who have done nothing getting banned for no reason. And the fact that you come down so hard over nothing, and don’t provide an appeals process, is deplorable. Hopefully I will be able to get my account back as this app is something i enjoy Using to meet new people and there are not really any alternatives to it that i like. This review doesn’t take into account the sometimes shoddy algorithm when using the app, but that’s neither here nor there. FIX UP TINDER.ShelovesjessVersion: 11.26.1
Super glitchyI have had this app for years now. In the past year or two, it has become very glitchy. It takes forever to load conversations that I am trying to have real time, when opening the app via notification, it makes it even slower, it freezes from time to time forcing me to close the app and try again, the keyboard glitches out, and more. It makes trying to have a continuous conversation very hard. On top of that, a recent update with the option to allow video calls has made conversation hard. After a couple back and forth messages, a pop up will appear at the bottom of the screen, covering about 1/3 of the screen. It asks if you are fine with video calls with that specific person. I like that it seeks consent. The only way to get rid of the giant pop up is agreeing or disagreeing. When you open the keyboard with the pop up still there, it just moves up, covering your conversation. I used to like the app. But in the past year or so, it has gone downhill. The only reason I keep it is because it is the most commonly used app, meaning more chances of swiping. Otherwise, it’s not worth a lot of the effort the app forces on you..LilbennayVersion: 11.30.0
Took a simple, decently working app and ruined it.I’m a software engineer. Tinder in concept is not a difficult app to implement. I’ve had the app on and off over several years, and it used to function fine and give off the impression of being fair in presenting potential matches. In the past couple years they have somehow taken a perfectly decent app and ruined it. The app is very clearly now about maximizing profit at the expense of the user. This is made abundantly clear by shoving paid features down our throats and showing higher quantities of higher liked users only to paying members. Meanwhile non-paid members are left with a limited experience and fewer matches. The decision makers at Tinder are insulting the user’s intelligence by thinking we won’t notice it. The users notice this and are vacating the app. The user base is clearly not as alive as it used to be and I’m sure Tinder sees declining numbers in there regular user count reports. And after putting up with all of this, they have the nerve to randomly ban and delete my account, with zero warning or explanation, thus deleting all conversations I had going. If any other app developers want an example of how to take a decent app and run it into the ground, look not further than Tinder..Dissappointed user 55372Version: 12.11.1
By far the worst / trashiest app with worse customer service than WalmartI've been paying for Tinder Gold for months now, and have always battled between wanting to delete the app or keeping it in "hopes" I'd meet someone with some substance. Is it easy to pull someone from it? For sure.
However you're much more likely to match with scammers (that have tried to blackmail me for $5k) or fake accounts "promoting" their Snapchat premium accounts. Upon attempting to report these accounts, they stay up, and even attempting to notify tinder about them they never seem to care (typical).
Now I've been banned from tinder (with my subscription just now charging me) for no reason, whereas I unfortunately had to stand up a girl at 10pm somewhere because I couldn't contact her. The app froze on my phone, so in order to get in touch with this young lady, I attempted to log into my account from my friend's phone. Upon doing the text verification , it logged me out then when my app unfroze, said I was banned. I attempted to write tinder about it, but only received an automated "screw you" type email. Absolutely pathetic. Especially when they advertise to "be more than a dating app." They made it very easy to make the decision to delete the trashy app..Dbrii6482Version: 11.29.0
Another day, another useless banHi, yes, hello, I am one of the many users who have been banned for absolutely no discernible reason without warning!
And with the ban being pretty much permanent (as Tinder has no appeals process at the moment), I gotta say, sounds like a pretty good way to decrease user count when I think the success of an app probably depends greatly on having many satisfied people using your app? I hope developers are considering this and are AT LEAST trying to implement a formal appeals process. Even an e-mail explaining what particularly caused the ban would be better than the nothing myself and others have received. I would have liked a chance to at least address what it was Tinder thinks I’m doing wrong. This is a pretty big deterrent from my wanting to use the app again in the future when possible or recommend it to others.
Other than almost constant crashing (and the ban of course), I found the simplicity and easy use of Tinder appealing. No big complaints on that end, but with this inexplicable ban rendering my account unusable from now on, you guys are getting one star from me until you can figure out a way for users who weren’t violating TOS or community guidelines to get their accounts back..AnitronVersion: 12.7.0
They just want your money.This app used to be so simple. Over the years, more and more features crept in for the sole purpose of squeezing the most money out of their users. I get that this is a free app and that developers deserve money, but the prices they are asking for are outrageous. There are constant gimmicks and reminders throughout the app that detract from the experience and that only serve to gain subscribers. You will get reminders that you missed a match and the only way to see the profile is to pay an absurd amount of money. One of the newest things is liking certain profiles and being goaded into sending a super like. These are limited and you will have to pay money for more of them. I also question the matching system. I can swipe for 10 minutes and not come across a single match when I know there are dozens that I can’t see because they are a list of blocked out profiles that have liked me but that I can’t see. In short, this app is not about actually bringing people together. The “features” they keep adding are actually roadblocks that are about perpetuating the endless search so that they can get as many paying subscribers as possible. Avoid this app and don’t waste your time..NeonBaboonVersion: 11.31.0
I hope the developers see thisSo I want to start off by saying, I had high hope for this app. Unfortunately, this is app has a lot of bugs and flaws. In the beginning I had several matches and I was like okay, this is getting really good. I started to have a conversation with a couple of the girls and I was getting ready to exchange numbers and all that. Then all of the sudden, there is no responds, I kept getting a few other matches after that and I would say something and I would get no response. So, today, someone hacked my account and I had to reset everything all over. I was like okay, fine. I started getting a lot of likes and I noticed that there was a green dot on right corner in my screen that indicated that I am online. I got a match and I started having a conversation with girl. After a couple of messages, I got no respond and then the green dot that was in the right corner of my screen vanished. I realized that this is a bug in the app. I am still receiving match’s but my messages does not go through. I want to say that this app is a money grab and I was very disappointed that I wasted my money on this app. I had high hopes but this will probably be the last month that I will subscribe tinder gold..Megasatan667Version: 11.30.0
One of the glitchiest apps I have ever usedI literally NEVER write reviews for apps, I don’t really care that much, but I’ve hit my breaking point with Tinder. I love this app, I’ve been using it for a few years and I’ve met some really cool people. But lately, this app has become completely unusable for me. Every time I try and type a message to someone, my typing lags and then whatever I wrote will randomly pop up 5-10 seconds later. Every time I get a message notification, Tinder won’t show it to me and I have to literally delete the app and redownload it in order to read what someone said to me. It’s like every time I try to use this app, something glitches and it makes my experience horrible. I was able to handle the overwhelming lagginess for a while, but now that I can’t even read a message without having to delete and redownload feels completely unacceptable from an app this widely used. And it isn’t an issue with my phone since I got a new one recently and it’s STILL happening. I think I’ve finally hit my breaking point with this app, I had a great few years but I don’t think I will be going back until it gets patched and works like a 2021 app instead of a flash website from 2005..Idk1762Version: 12.6.0
TinderTinder wil ban you, give you zero explanation, then leave you banned for years. What used to be a fun and reliable way to meet girls of all types with different interests became an unfortunate hub for unsuspecting males being cancelled without warning, without notice. Sadly, Tinder is the biggest and the most well known place for dating of all types but they are the opposite of a leader in society, by becoming selective in who gets to engage and enjoy dating life, which has become increasingly reliant on just one single outlet, which is mainly online, for some people, it is more than others, and dating is more online based in 2020 than ever before. In the past, we relied on a multitude of destinstions both physical and digitial in order to date and meet mates. How unfair is it that this seems like THE public square, through mostly no fault of our own, the ONLY public square for so many, yet some get banned for no good reason and don't get to date. How lacking in honor and respect for mankind. Tinder has become notoriously anti-man with a long list of cancellations, all of these cancelled people sharing the very similar story "banned for nothing, no way around it", with Tinder not caring what the experience is for those who have been banned..WiexenspeiVersion: 12.1.0
You aren’t getting what you paid for!Not sure why I’m paying for a service when you’re constantly being asked to pay to access new features. Without question, every time you log in the first swipe you are prompted with a message that says “upgrade your swipe with a super swipe” STOP TRYING TO GET ME TO WASTE MY RESERVES ON SOMEONE THATS POSSIBLY A FAKE ACCOUNT. Along with that just about every account here is a bot (sending links, or telling you to go to a website for premium content). I deleted my account restored my purchase and the same thing occurs. Im only matching with fake accounts. Continuing, what’s with the demographics of this app? There is no diversity? 90% of the profiles does not reflect the city I live in and this city has a melting pot of people, WHERE ARE THEY? Although I have the “Global” feature turned off, why I am I seeing accounts from 3k+ miles away If I have that feature turned on, it should be applied for people also using the passport feature, the same way you lock out accounts for the Gold and Platinum features.I understand you gotta make money so you allow this to continue but leave that crap to the non paying accounts!.Jarv960Version: 11.29.0
Banned for no reasonI’d hope the developer sees this. This app is fairly good. I can’t exactly complain other than the fact that I use to match with girls 100+ miles away from when my search radius is around 40 miles. I’m sorry but I don’t care to match with a girl that is 2 states away and sometimes in another country lol. I want to also add that i find it fairly ridiculous that I was banned for no reason I can think of nor did THEY give me a reason... On top of that, they have no way to appeal it. I’ve been on the website over the months and it says that, and I quote, “at the moment, we don’t offer a formal appeal process”. I could be wrong, surely I’m not, but this has been in development for a long time. I’d love to know when this is a thing. It makes me think that the developers don’t care enough about their users to want to even make something for appeals. Your customers must care enough about this app to want to try and appeal their ban. I’d love to know why I got banned in the first place anyways but they won’t tell me. I wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone. It’s ridiculous... the developers don’t care, they make you pay a rather ridiculous amount of money to even match with people..Jacks1821Version: 11.28.0
Matches are riggedFirst night on the app I quickly got two attractive matches to my surprise. I begin to have a great conversation with one of them, but for seemingly no reason and completely out of nowhere, the match and conversation disappeared, along with the second match which I had not even messaged yet. Neither of them could be found anywhere, and I have no idea why this happened. I know for a fact that I never said anything even vaguely inappropriate or offensive, so there was no reason for the one match to un-match with me. Ever since then I have not had more than two matches show up in the tab, despite buying plus, despite boosting, despite receiving notifications about new matches, and despite even trying to swipe right on everyone. Radio silence as far as I can tell. Tinder is at least kind enough to tell me that I have more likes I can view and match with if I buy Gold for $29/mo. No thanks. This app is rigged and will only give us crumbs compared to what we’re actually worth just so they can make more money off of our search for connection. I’ll be deleting after this pay period unless Tinder can show us that they’re really trying to be transparent in our dating interests..$uperman708Version: 11.24.1
ID Upload IssuesI know this may be a regional requirement, but requiring an ID to communicate is both a good and bad idea. It’s good to verify the age of a user to keep minors and adults from interacting. Scanning in that much personally identifiable information is something that doesn’t sit well with me, however. What happens to the scans at Tinder? In spite of this I uploaded my info to be able to communicate, and in thirty plus attempts to scan it in, it was not accepted once. Everything was in the lines, and in focus but turned down each time. Additionally, the prompt for this pulled me out of the app and into my browser. Don’t know if this was the reason or not for it not working, but either way it never worked. Without this, I couldn’t talk to matches because the scan isn’t accepted. On top of this, I was paying for the subscription, which I don’t like in the first place, but it is what it is. After about three weeks of hoping this would be sorted in an update, two weeks of which I had matches I couldn’t even communicate with, I decided enough is enough and deleted my account for the final time. Don’t think I’ll be reenrolling, and can’t recommend this app to others..Popcorn FantasyVersion: 12.8.0
DiscriminationThis app/site was good until my account got randomly banned for no reason. All it says is there was a violation of some kind but didn’t specify what that violation was. Then when you try to contact tinder to get clarification and get your account working again you either get no response at all or you some automated response that still tells you nothing. I have spent over $400 on this app in the last 4 months and to have my account banned with no explanation and no option of fixing what ever issue it was is completely unfair. The only thing I’ve been able to find anywhere says that my acct probably got banned because in my bio I stated that my husband and i are looking for a 3rd ( a woman to be our girlfriend). First, there are literally TONS of accounts that say the exact same thing. Second, it’s very discriminatory of this app/site to ban people for seeking a polyamorous relationship vs a traditional monogamous one. It’s discrimination boron line no other way to put it. Going to find other more inclusive apps because I refuse to give another cent to a site that claims to be inclusive and even claims to be a swinging app and then bans ppl for nothing. It’s unethical, unfair and just plain wrong..K wattsVersion: 12.4.0
I got banned for no reasonI had the app for about a year, deleted my account and started over once during that year. I never posted nor sent any inappropriate pictures, there was nothing vulgar on my page, just a couple of profile pics and like one or two sentences in my bio. I’m reading a lot of reviews of this happening to other people. I get that technical issues happen, and sometimes they even happen on a larger scale, but what really upsets me is seeing that Tinder has not responded to not a single review regarding this issue and I’ve even seen reviews where they’ve tried to email Tinder and received messages back saying they will not accept appeals nor offer any other options to get this issue fixed. Needless to say, I won’t be using this app anymore... one reason being that I’ve been banned for no reason whatsoever, but even if they fixed the issue by some miracle, since they don’t seem to like to do that, I probably still wouldn’t use it because who the heck treats its customers like that??? Yet they can respond to reviews regarding money! LOL! I had a subscription to mine for at least half the time I had this app, but why’s it gotta just be about the money?! 🤷🏻♀️.Autumnrenee1611Version: 11.31.0
Tinder Needs to Up Their GameI made a Tinder account back in 2018 when I was legally old enough to do so to try it out. All my friends were doing it, and I thought why not. Fast forward probably three or four weeks, after I’ve experienced several issues staying logged in to my account. I open the app, and it tells me I’ve been banned. There is no reasoning given to me for why, just the general explanation that I may have violated terms of service or community guidelines. I didn’t. The ban was random.
Since then, I’ve emailed a few times over the last two years just to try and clear up the issue. As of December 2020, however, there is still no appeals process, and after getting an email that your request will be reviewed, almost immediately you get another generic response from the “Support” team that there isn’t an appeals process and that your request is resolved. That isn’t customer service at all, that’s just telling for the company that they have no interest in helping resolve cases of accidental bans (because I am not the first nor the last to have this happen to them) and communicate with the customer in general. Very disappointed that this continues to happen..KennanjlukacsVersion: 11.29.0
Not realI’ve been using it for a while but I noticed that you will have a rush of likes in 1 or 2 weeks. But after that everything gets slow down. Even if you had tinder gold plus but it’s still the same. Most of the time it’s like someone liked me on the tinder like 3 to 4 people in a day but when I opened the app and there is no likes. What I’m thinking that they might like me or swiped me right but you guys are trying to take it off from me. Like giving me false hope and there is no likes. Who knows? Because maybe you want me to continuously use your plus membership monthly. No, but people should know if this is what you’re doing to them. And what is happening with me also happening to them, means I’m not wrong. Also I swiped everyone for 2 weeks like literally everyone. Yet not like back. At least one. Only one could like me back. But no one did. It doesn’t mean I may not look someone according to their interest. It also can mean that you took my every likes from them that they don’t know if I liked them or no. If this is how a business runs to take out the likes and make people keep using continuously the membership, then it’s the foulest thing that I ever seen..Señor SherzaiVersion: 11.26.1
Probably not worth it.I’ve used this app a little...but once I felt brave enough to put myself out there, I uploaded all decent pictures that contained no lewdness at all and filled out basically everything I could think of on the profile (contained no vulgarity either). Experience was going okay for just a little bit, but as soon as I begin seeing I apparently had some likes on my profile one day then I’m locked out of the app/my profile and told I’ve been banned. No explanation or anything from the support team or anything like an email, nothing. I’ve asked many times to have my account reviewed so they can see nothing was wrong with my profile or the messages but they just kept stating that “you’ve been banned for violating our terms”. So, here I am still single and unable to use what I thought was a good app because Tinder felt I violated the app by casually using the app like most people would? Like I said, my profile contained no vulgar images or words or anything like that nor did the few rare messages I got to send. So I’m confused and upset with my experience. If you’re thinking about spending money on the app, reconsider as they might just ban you for no reason as well..D.L.W.EVersion: 11.26.0
More like, Bug NightI’ve seen some other reviews mentioning the fact they completely broke their app with this update so I’ll just move on to the review of Swipe Night. It’s worse than any B-movie i’ve ever seen. I never thought you could make a story where the protagonist is background extras. First of all, cell phones don’t have static because they’re not analog TVs, so the glitching effect makes no sense. All the ambulances you see are from the 1970s because that’s all they had access to I guess. The sets are tiny and empty, I guess because the portrait aspect ratio doesn’t allow you to see much of the environment, so maybe that’s actually good filmmaking then. Obviously the acting is terrible and they try way to hard to make people sound “hip” and cool. Maybe they based the dialog on all y’all’s chat logs and some of you really talk like that. It’s really ironic that the app won’t let me click anything but the Swipe Night video plays fine. I was so bored I sat through a decent chunk of it until the bugs came back and I couldn’t swipe to make a choice anymore. Oh also I HIGHLY doubt that view counter is real. there’s no way over a million people could pay attention to that Z-movie..MrFrostingbuttVersion: 11.24.1
They never fix ANYTHINGI’ve had the app for about 4 years now through college, and it’s been buggy since the first day i downloaded it. Will constantly crash, and it doesn’t seem they ever fix it. Currently i get profiles that say they’ve super liked me, but then after a right swipe, no match. This is just the beginning of the never ending bug cycle. But don’t worry about the bugs, they’ve already hatched up their new and improved membership plans! 🙄
Also good luck getting matches because, like I said the app never works properly. I’ve had a couple of successful meetups from the app, but they come in spurts. App is filled with mostly bot profiles and females who are “just looking for friends” or promoting IG and use Tinder as a power trip or confidence booster instead of its intended purposes. Also I’ve tested a theory a few times, and Tinder is just extremely inconsistent with its algorithm. One time I can have over 100 matches in a few months, and another time I’ll struggle to get 5 matches.
Sadly still probably the best dating app there is, which is why I gave 2 stars instead of 1, but you’d think in 2021 we could do better..I Gotta iPhoneVersion: 12.9.0
Highly toxic and depressingToo many people using this out of boredom and too many douche bags. Please don’t waste your time on this app. No one uses this seriously. It’s just a matching game for most.
Also, if you’re a person of color especially a black person just know it takes just a few swipes from someone racist for you to be lowered in your desirability meaning. If you live in an area where people are swiping left for your skin color your profile is less likely to show up for someone on the same level of attractiveness as you. This isn’t just tinder but all dating apps across the board. I’m an above average attractive black woman and in person I have no problem attracting guys pre covid but on here I rarely get any guys I would ever find attractive. Their algorithm controls who you get to see and how attractive you are, theirs so many things wrong with that system and I’m honestly disgusted by all these dating apps.
They don’t care if you find love they just care about keeping you on as long as possible. Oh and the CEO once bragged that they had an above average desirability according to their algorithms. Everyone should do research on how dating algorithms work, stop wasting your money..Gale22Version: 11.29.0
Banned out of nowhere for no reason, customer support won’t even say whyAfter using tinder for about 6 years, opened the app a few days ago only to find I’d been banned with zero warnings or any indications of wrongdoing. I always acted respectfully with everyone and didn’t have anything that could possibly be considered controversial on my profile apart from some very tame shirtless pictures and a few anime related memes.
My advice, the app is fine but don’t spend a single cent on it, in case this happens to you. Banned suddenly without even a single warning, and no one will even tell you why or hear what you have to say. I lost all my matches and connections and years of effort, and they don’t even have the decency to tell me why or give me a single warning about any “wrongdoing”..Rick7898Version: 11.26.1
Shadow bansTinder used to be amazing. When I first started using tinder, I’d wake up to dozens of matches a day. In my first week I’d have easily over a hundred matches and countless conversations with some pretty cool people. I made lots of new connections whether online or in person. But idk what’s happened over the last year or so. After the last couple times I’ve downloaded, I get almost no matches. It will say I have 100+ people who swiped on me but will literally get no more than 2-3 matches a week. My messages don’t go through, and matches randomly disappear during a good conversation. It’s extremely frustrating and the app is definitely playing people. Even the secret admirer function tells me to pick one of 4 cards that swiped on me... but when I pick one it says better luck next time. Every single time... there’s so many better apps out there that don’t do this. One starts with a B and another with an H. I’d highly suggest trying those out and deleting this useless app. This review would get one star except for the fact that tinder used to be good and I would’ve gave it 4-5 stars a couple years ago..Elijah219Version: 11.28.0

Another person banned without reasonI’m seeing loads of people her being banned for no reason whatsoever, or because they were too young, which, when i first downloaded tinder i was 17, but this was before tinder made itself 18+, my account worked for about a year but after i had already turned 18 i somehow got banned. at first i thought this was because people who i had called out for their blatant racism (ie calling black children monkeys, or non-black people using the n-word) were mad and reported me, but how in the hell are we supposed to “correct” whatever behaviour doesn’t align with tinder’s terms and conditions if we are never told why we were banned? anyways, now i use bumble which i prefer to tinder, as it allows people who identify as women/femmes to initiate the conversation, and while you can still send photos, they are censored until you purposely click them, so as to protect you from unsolicited nudes. anyways, delete tinder and download bumble y’all :).HroskdnakmahdVersion: 11.26.0

TINDER GOLD GETS YOU BANNEDHi all, I gave this review because my account got banned for absolutely no reason. I looked it up online and apparently this suddenly happens to a lot of guys without wanting. I can assure you I had done absolutely nothing wrong; no nudity, no bad messages, no racism or insults thrown. I even had gold! And yet they still ban you, there’s obviously a glitch in the system, and Tinder needs to work on this. I think maybe because gold gives you more accessibility, and so more people are there to report you, even if it’s for no reason..TjsherpaVersion: 11.26.1
What is wrong with Tinder?I am just getting back into dating pool and was going to try Tinder but after reading all the reviews about people getting banned for no reason (or so they claim) no way am I planning to use this app.
There are literally dozens of these complaints. What is most concerning is that Tinder developers don't even try to respond or explain what might be going on. That is really poor customer relations.
Glad these apps have reviews at least to warn others. So thanks for the warning..MountaingoatheadsoupVersion: 11.25.0
Sexual assaultMatched with a girl, was going really well until we realized we had a mutual acquaintance. Turned out her best friend is the person who sexually assaulted me 5 years ago. She didn’t believe me, said I was gaslighting and reported my account. Tinder banned me overnight but kept my subscription active. When I tried to log back in Tinder informed me I would never be able to have another account linked to any of my existing accounts or phone numbers.

Confused userI was banned from Tinder along two other dating apps within the same weekend—I’m not sure at all why I was banned. Must have been some technical bug? No response or way to appeal from developer..Rational 'Radical' CentristVersion: 11.28.0
P2W GarbageThis app is nowhere near as good as it used to be. You won’t get anywhere using it unless you pay to see the people who have liked you..Kateri690Version: 11.26.0

BanniMoi et l’’une de mes amie avons été bannie sans aucune raison, nous n’avons meme pas eu le temps d’écrire à quelqu’un. Nos photo étaient très banale et nous n’avons même pas eu le temps de faire une description.
Lorsque nous avons écris pour comprendre, nous avons recu un message automatique disant que nous avons enfreint les règlements mais sans spécifier et lorsque nous lisons les règlements, nous n’avons rien fait qui mérite d’être bannis....
Voilà donc mauvaise application injuste.RinsletttVersion: 11.25.0
Ban for no reasonI got ban for no reason how can I contact tinder.Antho2002222Version: 11.24.0
Banned for absolutely no reasonThis app is complete trash, I downloaded tinder after not having it for awhile and after only 3hrs my account got banned. I emailed tinder support twice almost a week ago trying to find out why I was banned and if I could get that ban lifted and I’ve been ignored so just so people know, if they ask you to send them an email or they ask you to get in touch with them in any way don’t waste your time because they won’t help you. This isn’t the end of the world for me by any means because I can use other apps if need be but damn tinder, you need to work on your customer service big time..Bland89Version: 11.23.0

ScamPlease DO NOT give your phone number to Tinder.
What will happen is that they will sell your phone number to other companies. And those companies are SCAM. They will call you many times a day trying to scam you. I have used 2 different phone numbers at different times. After a few days, the number of scams calling me dramatically increased.
PLEASE BE COUSCOUS..Jason-202015382Version: 11.23.0
Harassment allowed ?My account got taken away because my ex reported me for solicitation with zero proof or reason other than him being petty. I wasn’t given any opportunity to prove my side and they literally removed my account without notice based on unsubstantiated claims. Now I have to get a new number to use this app if I want to. Which I won’t cause I don’t. Super misogynistic to just take women’s accounts down when someone is being vengeful but when men are flagged for actual provable harassment their accounts aren’t taken down without evidence and when evidence is given they are only suspended for a short time. What is the reason for this clear double standard?.EfIng TndrVersion: 11.23.0

Got bandThis is the second time this is happened and it’s really frustrating as I’ve paid for a membership for tinder gold both times in my account randomly gets banned after I reach a certain number of matches and I really don’t understand if there’s anyone contact me and help me figure this out with my account or give me my subscription back that be very helpful because I don’t believe I have broken any other can you drive lines and I’d be more than willing to talk to someone, One minute I was OK on the app within the same hour then the next it said my account was banned.Boosa0990Version: 11.25.0
BanniJe regarde tous les commentaires et je comprend que je suis loin d’être la seule à qui s’est arrivée. J’ai été banni pour aucune raison moi aussi (on ne m’a rien expliqué non plus) et c’est pratiquement IMPOSSIBLE se refaire un compte. Vraiment décue..Marime1998Version: 11.25.0
Account bannedI don’t understand why I got banned from Tinder for no reason and I emailed support team they still didn’t do anything it’s just stupid and ridiculous.Armd121Version: 11.24.0
No appeals. It’s ridiculous.I got banned for writing sugar daddies only in my bio. I’m a 34 yr old dude that was obviously joking. It’s ridiculous there’s no appeals process to being banned. Half the app is fake and they manage to keep real people off..Get an appeals processVersion: 12.3.0
No customer serviceHonestly this app is great, this is new way to meet tons of people. A lot of people here complaining about not having a lot of matches or people replying is on them.
Having said that a lot of people here are complaining about being banned with no explanation.
The only customer support they have is an automated robot which doesn’t seem to actually review your file and they don’t have a customer support number the only number i found tried scamming me.
So essentially they don’t seem to care about customers they have stated they take reports seriously (bullying, abuse) which is must’ve what happened to me yet they do not check the legitimacy of the report.
Although they have not considered there are people that will report out of spite / grudge which is a form of bullying and abuse so there system is in need to be updated.
Disappointed in the zero customer service in a large company but such is life, seeing as i’m banned now for life this will be my last interaction with this business..Just want good qualityVersion: 11.29.0
Unjustly BanThe app works fine and it’s really user-friendly but it doesn’t tell us WHAT the reason is for us getting banned and there’s absolutely no way to appeal. I’ve heard from various sources if a girl reports a guy he’s banned immediately but not the other way around, takes various time’s reporting a female and they “violate” terms all the time by not showing their faces or putting images with quotes, etc. and that’s really unfair.

Banned- been on since 2017Not sure why I was banned. I have been on this app for years, I make one offhand joke to a lady I matched with. Then I can’t log in a half hour later.
I honestly don’t understand why there is no way to appeal a ban or even get issued a warning. I have spent hundreds of dollars on this app over the years and have had marginal success in actually meeting people (which is why I feel angry to be banned at all). I am polite, my profile was free of offensive material, but here I am. Lord forbid I have to actually meet someone the traditional way..Avstar77Version: 11.23.0

Banned for no reasonI made my account today and I was swiping through and then tinder logged me out and when I tried to log back in it said I was banned. For what? Nothing? I guess this is a sign the world wants me to stay a virgin single for the rest of my life 😤😠.*Ria*Version: 11.23.0
Banned and for what?I got banned with no warning and for no reason, I was actually having a nice conversation for once and now I’m banned! I’m over 18, I didn’t have nudes on my profile, there was no reason for it. And of course there’s no way to actually contact tinder to even understand why you got banned.DimabilansmulletVersion: 11.23.0

Banned for no reason :/I think the app took one of my jokes too seriously and now i’m banned. I have no idea why I could be banned except for maybe a flirty joke I made….i always tried to use the app respectfully and honestly i was a big advocate for this app until i heard about the random banning it does sometimes :/ sad it totally interrupted the convo i was having..SnizzyizVersion: 12.11.1
Just a pathetic overpriced appWAY too expensive for what you’re getting (unless you’re aim is casual sex and it’s leading to that - then i guess it’s cheaper than prostitutes). Full of super shallow narcissistic profiles, and just a sad and broken “pool” to fish from. The likelihood of meeting a quality person here is pretty close to nil. The world is in a dire spot. The superficiality is only compounded by the idea that people are going to meet based on pictures and a tiny paragraph bio and that this is encouraged is terrible.HansNfeetVersion: 12.11.1
Fraud with BoostsSo apparently Tinder takes your money for nothing: I have Global mode switched off, ALWAYS, yet the app is showing me to people from thousands miles away. And showing my profile to them, as I get likes from them. This effectively means that I wasted tens of dollars on Boosts to be shown to people I specifically chose not to be shown to. Bravo. Uninstalled, switched to Bumble..TjgfjcdjVersion: 12.4.0
