Tinder - Dating New People App Comments & Reviews
Tinder - Dating New People Positive Reviews
Passions don’t feel catered well to matchingI’ve been using Tinder for a bit and I was excited to see the passions functionality. There’s so many to pick but at the same time, so many feel like fluff. Things like walking, tea, coffee, trivia, art or second hand apparel don’t really tell me much about the profile I’m looking at. I wish they were more specific to the person and better for finding good matches; how much do I really have in common with someone if we both selected coffee as a passion?
Some ideas I’d like to see in the passions. Maybe have tags for religions (Christian, Atheist, Muslim, etc.). Change second hand apparel to antiquing and/or thrifting, since these sound more hobby-based. I’m actually surprised there’s no tag for anime or sitcoms; things like this would serve better than having Netflix as a tag. I like the idea of having the political tags but they’re very specific, maybe replace a chunk of them with the generic liberal, conservative and moderate. LGBTQ is on there twice, I don’t think adding ‘rights’ to one makes them any less interchangeable, instead one could by LGBTQ ally or something like that. I think more games would be helpful beyond board games and gamer (card games, DnD, Nintendo, Pokémon etc.) The music is only split into Country and ‘Music’, maybe add more like Rap, 60s, 80s and Lofi. There are so many sports related tags, I think it’d feel like more variety if more were added or if some were cut back like running, walking, athlete etc..CollishemayhemVersion: 13.3.0
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
Paywall complaints are straight up liesListen. The app works. If you aren’t getting matches then people just don’t like you. It has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not you pay for an upgraded version.
There’s zero significance in seeing people who liked you, because if you liked someone who likes you back it would be a match. You should not be messaging people unless both you and they have a greed that you are attracted to one another.
I am a generically pretty woman who has never paid for Tinder. In the last two years I have dated four different millionaires that I have met because of tinder. I just deleted the app because I have over 100 messages and match notifications. I have never in my life paid for tinder. I work in digital marketing and I know how to talk to people. I promise the app is fine. It’s the idiots who don’t know how to work para social relationships that are messing it up, not the app.
Now- all that said-i’ve never had an experience with reporting or banning so I cannot speak to that issue. But as far as there being a pay wall? Sweetie you don’t have to pay to see who likes you. If you liked one another it would be a match and you’d be talking. Have some common sense..HajdhffVersion: 13.7.0
My “Tinderella” StoryI downloaded Tinder because a few friends told me to. I was nervous because I figured it wasn’t something for me. I’ve always been the relationship type of person so I figured an app known for other things was definitely not where I’d find love. Unlike some of these bad reviews I didn’t buy Tinder gold or anything like that, I actually thought the regular app was quite fun. I honestly got addicted to it and would spend a lot of time swiping. I swiped right on this adorable, tall, guitar playing guy and we immediately matched (yay). He texted me first and we hit it off straight away. Turns out him and I went to the same college and everything. We had SOOO much in common. After getting my phone number and facetiming for a couple days, he picked me up and we went on our first date, which would be one of many many wonderful dates. Little did I know downloading Tinder would lead to meeting the love of my life. Just thought I should share my “Tinderella” story on here to let everybody know that while Tinder is super fun, it can also lead to something more than just somebody to text or talk to. :).PedrotheoboeVersion: 12.23.0

Tinder - Dating New People Negative Reviews
It’s all about money and no resultsThe apps prices have significantly went up for the premium services than what they used to be and a bit more ridiculously priced from other apps. Like now you can’t see who’s swiped on you unless you have the gold service when it used to be on the plus service which plus practically serves no purpose and even now with having the gold service even though I can see who swipes on me it’s as if I don’t get any swipes because the app keeps promoting for you to buy boosts and I used the one free boost and got tons of swipes! But now not using boost and not wanting to pay for boost I get like 10 swipes a day and I’ve only had gold membership for a week now and I do swipe on other people as well and can see who is still in the que for who I have swiped on and it seems as though tinder isn’t showing me in their swipe stacks because I would of guessed those people to of swiped yes or no on me by now. The experience on here in general has been worst than it has in the past. As far as dating apps go Tinder has significantly went down and I would say try else where unless you want to spend a lot of money for no results and am already regretting my decision and it has been a huge waste of money. In the past it wasn’t that big of a deal because it was decently priced but now it costs a lot more for it to actually be considered a huge waste. After my subscription ends I’m for sure never downloading this app again..Gabz237Version: 12.23.0
They Can Shut You Down With No ExplanationWithin 48 hrs of having downloaded the app (most of that time I was traveling so I wasn’t even very active) they put my account under review and asked for some verification photos which I provided. Then I waited a couple days to let things get sorted out before writing the customer service people, I received a response saying that they were escalating the issue for further review, ok no problem do your thing, then I received a follow up email saying my account was all good and I should be able to log in. But then when I went to open the app it said I had been banned. This is insane because I’m a super nice respectfully person, only had pleasant and positive interactions with the few people I was chatting with, never said anything that could be deemed offensive or violate their community guidelines or terms of service at all, all of the photos of me were fairly recent… I was shocked. After reaching out again they refused to offer any explanation and said the results were final and permanent. I feel like I was treated very unfairly, and should have at least been given a reason for what was the issue other than “we take our terms and conditions and/or community guidelines very seriously.” Of course, and so would I. Im just highly disappointed and feel betrayed by this app. Out of all the ratchet stuff going on constantly, I get banned and I was nothing other than kind and respectful to everyone I chatted with..Mr. McGuillacuttyVersion: 13.1.0
Tinder went downhillI don’t normally leave reviews but it’s really surprising to me how downhill Tinder has gone. Idk if there are just too many users now and people get put way down in the deck unless they buy the overpriced platinum membership or what, but it’s a night and day difference. Anecdotally, I used to get a dozen or more likes a day and at least 3 matches, and if I boosted I would get several dozens of likes by the end of the 30 minutes. Now I’ll be lucky to get a LIKE, let alone a match. I very rarely get matched with someone I liked first, which is completely different than it was a couple years ago. Idk if it’s because I came back to the app after a few years of inactivity (I was in a relationship), and Tinder sank the rating of my profile so low that I never get surfaced to other people. I’m not going to spend upwards of 50 bucks a month or whatever it is on a platinum membership to get the same experience I did a year and a half ago. App ratings have sunken since, prices of memberships have increased, and it just seems like the app is starting to die and they’ll die by squeezing out as much money out of you as they can. Fwiw even after I got a gold membership and used a boost, I still log in every day and see no likes. So I don’t even think paying money is an option for you to get in Tinder’s good graces unless you get the platinum membership. Just not worth it. Anyway, Hinge seems like a better option..Hardshot4488Version: 12.23.0
Don’t waste your time or money!So, I have had Tinder off and on for the past few years. But recently after deleting my account to start fresh and take a break. About 2 weeks ago I redownloaded the app to give it another shot. However, I was randomly banned without any explanation as to why. I believe I was banned because so many guys I had matched with made sexual advances towards me and I denied them. So they most likely reported my account. And although I have only been back on the app for 2 weeks, despite my profile saying I’m looking for a relationship so many guys asked for sexual favors or wanted to hookup. Making vulgar and crass remarks unprompted often right off the bat. Which I should not be reported for. Then I emailed tinder to request my account be unbanned and I was given some dry, robot response. With no consideration of what I had experienced using the app. So ladies be aware that this can happen to you too. Even if it is not at all your fault! It would be nice to know what terms and community guidelines I supposedly “violated”. Not to mention, I reported the sexual commentary I received constantly. There is a huge issue with men who are looking to cheat on their significant others on this app. I’m sure I am not alone in this. But how am I more at fault then people who are committing adultery? I not anyone else should not be punished for declining their advances and wanting to actually DATE someone we connect with! Crazy concept..#BrutuallyHonestVersion: 13.1.0
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....GậhchVersion: 12.11.1
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
Notifications are belittlingHad a notification today that stated essentially “the only way to get out there in the dating world is to get back online - who would’ve known 😱” not only is it unprofessional to assume that I’m currently wanting to get on tinder to use for dating currently, but it’s also ridiculous to think that Tinder is the only way to meet a significant other. Not only the snarky and condescending wording by whoever decided to write this notification, but to not respect my boundaries of when I chose if I’d like to use tinder for my dating choices or not is crazy to me and others. If I don’t want to use Tinder for the meantime, I don’t need your team to try to convey a disrespectful message/notification to me. Sarcasm towards your clients is the absolute dumbest way to get them to use your app and spend money as well. Not only that, you want people to pay 24 dollars a month for a premium package for a site that has a history of hookups, not long term relationship success. You really try to screw your clients in more than one way. Deleting this app for good tonight, and if you have any respect for yourself, I suggest others do the same as well. Obviously this company cares more about how much money they can get out of you, not how meaningful the relationships and success rate of long term relationships that are built from them. If I could rate this company and app worse than a 1 star, I would..BigMike3621Version: 13.3.0
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
Only giving it 2 stars because I met a nice friend.I’ll keep it short and simple. Here you have an app that’s made to connect people and bring them together. In order for you to see who liked you, you need to pay. In order to get more attention via a boost, you need to pay. You want better “top picks”, you need to pay. If your like me, and already literally hated the idea of using dating apps, then don’t waste your time here unless you have money laying around that you don’t mind throwing at this app all the time.
Not only Tinder, but most “dating” apps are just broken. I get the idea of bringing people together along with preferences to narrow it down, however Tinder and others try to fit all groups into one. What I mean by that is - this is a dating app right? Where you go to meet people to, ya know, date? I’d say these apps are broken down into three categories of use - relationships, hooking up, and validation. I’d say most people here are on for validation. They don’t want love, they want the love they get from 20 people swiping on them inflating their ego. The next small group is looking for just sex, and the next is actual dating. There really should be an app out there for people to sign up for just for all that attention people need and want. Dating apps? Ya ok, more like feed someone else’s already inflated ego app..IBLopez33Version: 13.1.0
Banned for no reasonOooo I’m livid I’ve used tinder forever. I deleted my old account for awhile as I had ended up in a relationship but after that not working out I reinstalled tinder and made myself a new account. I did not violate any terms. I didn’t even have a bio and just selfies as pictures, nor did I message any inappropriate things. Honestly I barely messaged anyone I just sent people my Snapchat so the reasoning behind the ban is what I’m confused about. Especially considering I’d had my new account open for like a month before it was banned and hadn’t changed anything on my profile, and also when I went to open the app and found out I was banned I hadn’t been on it in like a week. I was so mad considering once you’re banned that’s it. You cannot use tinder again unless you get a new phone number and Apple ID. I tried getting in contact with some type of support but couldn’t find much help. I emailed about an appeal for my ban but all I got back was a robotic email stating I was banned and can’t be unbanned but still have no reasoning. It’s really pathetic honestly. Then I come on here and realize a bunch of people are getting banned for no reason left and right. Y’all need to get it together and fix this. This is going to drop yalls ratings and user amount tremendously especially considering y’all are getting rid of users yourself by banning them..Mindyrenee7Version: 12.14.0
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
Fun while it lastedWell it was fun while it lasted but it looks like tinder is finally pay to win now. Started out small with taking away the amount of likes you had every 12 hours. Than they took away the super like feature, unless you pay for it, and then they started to shadow banned accounts that were not signed up for tinder gold. For the last few months the work around to all this was to make a new account every couple of weeks. New accounts get shown as normal but then after 2-3 weeks you were shadow banned. No big deal just delete your account and make a new one but it looks like the money hungry leeches at tinder caught on. You can’t delete your account anymore and instead of being shown for 2-3 weeks you are now only shown for 24 hours. You are still able to swipe on people however it doesn’t matter. No matter if you swipe right or left on someone you will still be shown their account each time you log back on. I came across the same accounts 9 times in a row. You now have unlimited likes but again this is worthless as your likes don’t mean anything because the people you like won’t see it. I really liked tinder. Was my go to dating app and I had nothing but positives to say about it for the past few years. But now I guess it is officially dead unless your fork over some cash..Td8699Version: 12.23.0
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
Why did I get banned?Now typically I wouldn’t get upset over something so silly but the fact that I’ve never been banned from anything and that I actually didn’t do anything wrong really bothers me. I read through all your terms and conditions and thought maybe I made an honest mistake and somehow violated them but no. I did not violate your terms and conditions and I have no idea why you banned me. I’m gonna take it as a sign that I just shouldn’t be on Tinder but I mean still. Plus this app has no way to like fight the ban or even be reconsidered unless you are simply under review which is kinda dumb. I’m a real 21 yr old female, who is from American and currently lives in Italy for my job and I was literally on Tinder for a day but my phone service was not operating correctly so I tried deleting my account but it wouldn’t let me so I paused it. Then when my phone started to operate correctly again I tried to log back in to unpause my account and it said I was banned. None of my photos are copyright and there’s no way I could’ve gotten reported or anything when my phone was so messed up I couldn’t get any matches like it just kept putting the same people up over and over. Maybe you should ban the app instead of me. Whether it be my phone service or just your app bugging out, who knows but it definitely is not my fault..AlexRuck99Version: 12.20.0
Banned for no reason/without explanationI have noticed that tinder doesn’t reply to these. Many of my friend use this app and have noticed they will randomly get banned after paying, as it happened to me as well. I personally think they either need to set up a appeal process or renew everything on the app process. I know tinder isn’t about to even reply to this, but I just want it to be known that all of my friends are coming over to one Star this app until they set something up to make this process better for everyone. It is honestly ridiculous you can let people looking for thirds who play themselves as females to harass people about it or you get the people who will just report you for not replying why is that even an option on the reporting. Sometimes people can’t reply because the app is so freaking glitchy that messages sometimes don’t appear. Y’all advertise tinder as a great app but in reality if people are always complaining from what I’ve noticed about the glitching or having to get whole new numbers and phones to make a new account. It’s honestly sad seeing how bad this app can get like how do you not have a support line or even email that gives people an actual reasoning to why they were banned ect. Have fun hinge is way better y’all go there they are also cheaper.HarmoinoVersion: 12.20.0
Worst Dating App with no way to get unbannedI had this app for over a few years. Then one day someone got my profile information and started uploading explicit pictures on my profile. Instead of emailing me, texting me, or trying to contact me about the situation they banned my account. I went to Tinders website to try and plead my case and repeal their decision. I could not find any such place on their website except a customer service email. I emailed them to try and and explain my situation, but was left with “at this time there is no repeal process put in place to allow someone the opportunity to be unbanned”. I don’t understand how in a world where people are constantly getting hacked that they have no plan or repeal process for situations like this. I tried making a new account with a new email and tried making new social media’s. Unfortunately they have linked my banned account to my phone and everything on my phone. It’s fine, I’ll spend my time, energy, and money on different apps like bumble and hinge. This inferior app has so many other problems with it, I’m sure I won’t miss it. Will never recommend this to anyone looking to use dating apps. I will always tell people from now on not to use this one because of the constant sexually charged males harassing women over this app..TD0625Version: 12.20.0
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
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
Do Not DownloadWhere to begin… A couple of years ago I decided to join the crowd and download Tinder to meet new, fun, and interesting people. Tinder was quite popular at the time and I was ready to see what the buzz was all about and after using the app on and off again since 2017, I can confirm that this app is not worth your time. A majority of the accounts that you’ll come across now are clearly fake or are s*x workers looking to advertise their “fan page”. If that isn’t annoying enough, you’ll be shown people 7000 miles away! Even after changing the settings on the app to show me people in my area, the app will still show me people way too far away, completely ignoring what I changed. The app has seen a decline, with more people realizing the flaws with the app and have moved onto newer apps, such as Bumble. Since my time using Bumble, it seems to get it right when it comes to filtering out fake accounts, s*x workers, people extremely far and showing me fun and interesting people my age around my area. Tinder is not worth the download and not to mention it’s ridiculous prices to access basic features! In all the app is not worth anyone’s time unless they address those issues which I doubt they will. Rest In Peace Tinder, you will not be missed!.Gojira227Version: 12.16.1
You gon learn today tinderOn behalf of all people who had their accounts banned by tinder for not violating any policy or got a new phone number but is still banned from previous owner. Cellphone companies recycle its numbers. #tinder doesn’t remove those old numbers after a period of time even with proof of new phone number ownership. Also people have been banned for identifying as Non-political or dont cohere to the view of libtards. So discrimination on top of that. Tinder you have been reported to the BBB Better Business bureau for discrimination of people(s) personal views and refusal to remove numbers off your servers after time. False accusations by your employees because of their own leftist views. If this isn’t addressed .a petition has been already done with 1000+ signatures and personal statements of conversations between the consumer and your horrible support system which is almost impossible to get ahold of. Either unban all the old phone numbers and stop letting ur employees personal beliefs be the downfall of tinder. The petition and personal statements will only be used if you don’t fix this issue. Punishing those who did nothing wrong is disgusting. No different than communism,socialism and Nazi-ism. It’s not a threat. it’s the correct way of protesting by using words and corrects chain of command..CaptcharlesmVersion: 13.1.0
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
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: 12.20.0
Scam to get money then Bann youDo not get and definitely do not put money into tinder. Users are describing having issues the erase conversations for one person and the other still sees them there’s nothing but bots basically all the issues you can have in dating apps exist in tinder and they will never fix them. I was banned for unforeseen reasons and no given no means of correcting this issue and was even about to pay premium for this app before I got banned. Used to tinder for three years and I have no clue why my account was banned so I am probably going to do the same thing again somewhere else. You can’t make another profile because it all connects through Facebook. I now realize that I also had the bug where you don’t see your matches in your match list they keep disappearing and coming back. My conversations were also disappearing and coming back it would be days and weeks in between. I will never use dating apps again I’m just going to use Facebook dating if anything and that’s it this app has ruined all dating apps for me that’s how bad this app is. This app is trash. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼.ShhutfgVersion: 12.18.0
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
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
Please Help All Of Us !!!!! Banning everyone is not workingI love tinder I’ve used it on and off for years and never had a problem. One day one of my friends were banned we were both confused as they did nothing wrong and the next day I was banned as well doing nothing at all that would break rules and regulations of tinder. Even more confused we decided to see if others were getting banned for no reason I’m seeing so many complaints on social media from people getting banned for no reason. I have been trying to be patient and wait for news of y’all allowing and people to file some sort of annulment or complaint but have seen none. I’ve emailed you twice with nothing but a copy paste explanation saying I violated the terms of service and community guidelines. I’ve read over all of them several times and have not violated any. This is extremely frustrating and I’m starting to think I’m being hacked or the whole app is being unfair to users or people are being banned for petty reasons by others such as getting flagging for example not answering. innocent people are being banned. I want my account reactivated I’ve given you my time, my money, and my hope for something more using tinder and I’m extremely disappointed. Please help me..LunaRose244Version: 13.3.0
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
Banned for no reasonI’ve used tinder frequently throughout the years. I have always been appropriate with how I approach my matches. Recently, I had re-signed up for tinder after deleting the app from a few months ago. When I downloaded the app I bought tinders gold feature. After a week or so of using the app I was prompted to get photo verified and I submitted my picture then. After waiting an entire day of not being able to access the app because my photo was still under review I sent their customer support an email message about the issue. Later the same day, i still had received no response back but was able to again access the app. A day later I was prompted that my account was banned. Between getting photo verified and being banned I messaged zero people and before that I had not in weeks if at all after my initial download of the app. I tried to reach out to their customer service via phone and I received busy signals, I reached out again using email and have not gotten a response. This was an extremely frustrating situation that do not completely understand myself but I have moved on from it. This review is to state my experience so that viewers are aware of the risk they take by just using the app..Tyler-986Version: 13.1.0
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Okay listen,I downloaded this app what I turned 18 because that’s what you do when you are a lonely 18 year old. I used it for about a year with not much luck and then at 19 I found someone. On the second month of consistently seeing this girl, I thought “yeah I’ll never need tinder again” so instead of deleting it, I turned it into a game with this girl. We made an account for Daddy Vader. Yes you heard that correctly. We used Daddy instead of Darth. The force choke and I am your father jokes were hilarious. We got a lot of matches the first day, had our fun talking with people and within 24 hours got banned. I really didn’t care at the time because I was happily cuffed but now I’ve been single for a year and a half with really only bumble to meet new people. Even though I’m an attractive fella, most girls don’t talk first, so a lot of the few matches I get as a guy go right down the drain. I’ve tried emailing tinder about getting back on to seriously date but there has been no response. Honestly I don’t NEED to get back on tinder, but I really do need to meet new people and having this option back would be a big help.
All in all, great app. But they really should make themselves more reachable customer service-wise..Tylercoolguy007Version: 13.1.0
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

Banned for no reasonI made an account awhile ago but I wasn’t 18. I just turned 18 today so I went on the app and tried to log in but it says I’m banned?? Customer service refuses to help.

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
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.
She was the first person I felt safe enough to tell..MajoronVersion: 12.7.0
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
Disappointed by thisI was banned from the app and I have absolutely no idea what I could have done wrong. I did not violate any terms or conditions so I put in a request and the customer service did not help me at all. I was enjoying conversations and now I have lost contact with the people. Not happy at all..HcaitlinVersion: 11.28.0
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
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
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

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.

Customer serviceHad some girl harassing me and besides banning her I got banned for making a childish remark on my end, no block feature so I was rude. And contacted them apologizing and just letting them know she wouldn’t stop spamming and harassing me and my account gets banned, the customer service for this app is terrible,.Brayden sakowskiVersion: 11.29.0
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.

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
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
