Fantastic app but...Some bugs need improvement. Sometimes I open the app with a message from more than one person so I'll click on one conversation and the app switches the photos of the two people I received messages from.
Next I was checking out someones profile when I swipe surge started. I was thinking about swiping right for this person but the swipe surge seems to have removed their profile and I never got to give them the swipe right. As someone who has just moved to a new area and is trying to meet people, this is extremely disappointing to see a glitch like that happen.
A new issue that I’ve encountered frequently recently. I’ll receive a message from a match and can only access the conversation through the notification that pops up when I don’t have tinder open. If I open tinder from the home screen icon, it looks like the match is gone. But when I open from the notification that’s still in my phone’s system, I can still send and receive messages from that match. It’s starting to make me wonder how many matches I’ve actually lost and how many were just lost to a glitch in the system. Please fix this..JTD457Version: 13.8.0
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
Too buggy for all the money they take inI’m not going to list the myriad reasons why tinder is a sub par service, just the app itself.
The app is built to constantly market boost and super like purchases to customers and it’s incredibly annoying. Almost every other time you tap through someones profile you get a large pop up prompt asking you to super like them, which always blocks out location information. Same with liking popular users. In my opinion, a premium paying user shouldn’t be constantly inundated with pop ups trying to siphon more money out of them.
There’s also issues with matching/chat functionality. Likes and messages are regularly dropped, which leads to situations where you think somebody is ignoring you but they just never even got your message. I’ve had a couple chats just get deleted wholesale as well.
For the amount of money this app takes in, it should be much more polished and reliable.
That being said I’ve gotten a couple decent hookups over the past month so I can’t completely hate it. Just be ready to deal with some frustrating bugs if you’re going to jump in.SmogMonVersion: 13.8.0
Cooperate strikes againI’ve seen the ratings go down for years, and here’s why: Tinder reasonably realized they made more money from people who bought tinder premium or gold in 2015. In the earlier days, tinder gold bought you the most basic upgrades, like unlimited swipes. Nothing special. Today however, they’ve gotten so greedy that they made two separate algorithms: if you’ve payed for tinder gold, you’re placed in an algorithm that will match you frequently with people who swiped right on your profile. If you didn’t pay, then you are enrolled in an algorithm that purposely avoids people who’ve swiped right on your profile. Furthermore, I’ve both the free version of tinder, and I’ve used tinder gold, and I’ve found that disgustingly, you find more minorities and people people with a larger body size tend to appear significantly more frequently on the free tinder algorithm. This overt prejudice blatantly contrasts with how accepting of diversity they seem on their advertisements. Don’t be fooled, Match Group clearly doesn’t care about you and your love life, rather on the size of of your pocket and the color/ shape you possess..HeuUsVersion: 12.20.0

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
To each is own‼️I’ve had this app for a while and though I wasn’t looking my husband I did seek to meet new people. Over the course of the time I’ve been active off and on. I understand rules and boundaries it’s not in my character to make disrespectful advances. However in recent times I’ve been banned for reasons I have no idea. I feel that’s unfair because I’ve made genuine friends and was currently messaging someone real nice and we built a friendship however we had not exchanged numbers or social platforms I mean what’s the rush anyway. I have gotten a crap ton of disrespectful persons men and women making very rude statements and commands which was not given off in bio. I have had people match them ask for sex then curse me out to people who are just looking for sec and politely tell me. I don’t hate the app but I do not approve how I was treated. I messaged the contact but then I wondered if it even mattered. The only reason it matter is because no someone who I was talking to possibly thinks I’ve abandoned them or they’ve said something wrong and is stuck with the what if. How is it that there or women not even hiding behind mens accounts, sexiest, dope dealers who clearly state all this in their bio and still have accounts. I’m very upset at how a person of my character was banned for reasons unknown and I know for a fact I’ve been respectful to those even though they weren’t to me. And you can’t file a claim because they give you the run around. Oh well I guess‼️.BerdeishaVersion: 13.10.1
Very much a sca these daysWhen tinder first came out it was nearly free to use. Unlimited swipes and I think at least one super like a day. They had a paid option and that really just boosted your profile, gave you more super likes and allowed you to see who likes you, real simple. Over time tinder has gotten much worse. Now their pricing is wack and designed to confuse you. Not to mention that they charge way too much for the crap service they provide. $1.50 for a single super like... You still get ads even for the cheapest price of tinder plus $8 for one month. I even noticed that as soon as I paid for that single month all the people became way more subjectively atractive and a lot of profiles were suspiciously fake or not from your area yet I set my location and distance preference. Yes, I'm calling out tinder for using fake profiles to bring people in. I had been using free tinder for a week prior and I never saw those people before. I'm also very positive that the algorithm is tuned to pick subjectively atractive people and display them more prominently. Today after my one month of tinder plus ended, I have met no one and then I started to see all the regulars again, profiles I already swiped left on and what seemed to be people in my area. Tinder is a scam plain and simple. There 6 way to boost your profile article on the app store page is a joke. Anyone with a brain could recognize those trends except bright in the new black section made no sense..Tyler SandyVersion: 13.5.0
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
Many bugs/glitches & greed.There are so many bugs with this mobile app. I have been talking to people who I initially thought were just unmatching me at very random points in conversation, but then I log into the app on web browser, and BOOM. There’s all the matches that I thought unmatched me. Sitting there as if I ghosted them for weeks/months. As a male on dating apps, good luck getting a lady to respond after a situation like this. The mobile app is whack. Web app is fine, for the most part. Also sometimes these matches would pop back up on mobile, but the conversation history would be cleared, or the matches name would be blank, and you couldn’t remove the match from your feed because using the unmatch button did nothing 😂 the functionality of the app is very iffy due to the aforementioned. As someone who has been using this app on and off for years as well, I can’t help but be disappointed in the direction the app is moving. Super likes used to be available for free to use once a week, and to be quite honest, they really did give guys a better chance at getting matches & get the ball rolling on a date. Those are all gone and a pay only feature now. If you don’t mind paying for the chance of ‘love’ then hey this is the leading app, enjoy. But they do an awful job at bug fixing, the app drains battery quite a bit, and slows down my phone if used for a while at once..LionzireVersion: 13.14.1
Deserves shutting down, it’s a scam.What can I say? What should I say? It doesn’t help you meet people or get you dates, but it does do what it was designed to do, make the creators/developers money. Limiting the number of swipes for one, designed to make money, pay for extra swaps you sad lonely peasant. See who likes you? Cough up the dough. 6 weeks so far, zero matches. I’ve swiped, and swiped, and swiped. Unfortunately, Tinder is not for dating, it’s for hookups, only the most attractive people get to use it for screwing. If you want a meaningful relationship, look elsewhere, otherwise you’re wasting your time. In fact, just find some courage and bravery, and the strength to face rejection in the real world, because you’re only going to meet real people and find a real relationship by going outside and meeting real people, not swiping on shallow and “pretty” people day in and day out on a cash grab app preying on the lonely or desperate. Do not, I repeat, do not get this app for a relationship. If you’re an 11/10, or even a 10/10, and feel like a casual hookup, by all means go for it, but don’t think your soulmate is on here, or that you’ll find “the one,” ‘cause that ain’t happening and it ain’t realistic. Please, go outside, go where people are. Roll the dice. Maybe someone you find attractive has a partner already. Maybe they don’t, that’s just a risk you have to take, and it’s already way way more effective than even 100 days on this app will ever be..Dako_the_AustiniteVersion: 13.15.0
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
Needs A LOT of WorkI’ve been experiencing sooooo many bugs. The fact that tinder makes it almost impossible to contact them makes it extremely apparent that they don’t want feedback, they just want your money. For starters, my matches randomly disappear for days mid-conversation, but then randomly reappear at the front of my new matches. The entire conversation gone, and now they think I just ignored them for days. Second, I am getting numerous notifications of messages from some of my matches when they haven’t sent anything at all. For example, a new match I got today has sent 2 messages to me. Tinder is now alerting me with a new message notification from her every 2-3 minutes. Brand new notification every single time. I tried to go report this bug, but when you try to do this, you’re led to a screen where you get to search through every single one of Tinder’s policies with absolutely NO CONTACT information. I’m pretty fed up with Tinder. Hinge is so much better in every single way. Not NEARLY as many BOTS, more detailed profiles, search parameters, etc. If anyone considering using tinder has read this far, I implore you to use a different app. If you insist on using this one, please don’t spend a dime on it, and don’t use it often enough to give them any ad revenue. If anyone from Tinder is reading this, well… you have a lot of work to do if you don’t want to become a thing of the past. Good luck..Dinix MasouroxVersion: 13.12.0
Too many fakes, scammers, “catfish”Nothing is done to ensure that the people on the site are actually genuinely looking for a match. Captchas aren’t installed, having a “verified” profile is optional, most members don’t fill anything in the bio because it’s not even required. Often you’ll see people that are thousands of miles away by mileage, or people that are nearby, but their “live in” city is thousands of miles away because they’re just visiting your area. Needs to be a setting to only show those people that are physically nearby and also live nearby, or where you can select it if you want to see visitors. There’s no way to tell political leanings unless they put certain tags in their profile or put it in their bio. There’s no way to know important things like if they have pets or drink/smoke unless they happened to answer those questions-they’re optional. There’s no way to make it so you only see people that don’t have pets or don’t smoke or restrict out certain tags a person might add as their interest, for example “Activist”. To be a better app, these things need the focus, not the cutesy “Vibes” questions that don’t have much meaning to whether they’re going to be a good partner or not. And having to “Boost” in order to be seen by people you like is lame - it ought to just automatically put them front and center for them and tell you if they rejected you or not. But anything for a buck, eh, Tinder?.Navyjax2Version: 13.4.0
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
Tinder Gold Is No Longer Worth Your MoneyI used to unironically like Tinder, even at its base form I’ve gotten matches that ended up leading to great relationships. Unfortunately, as time has passed the company has made taken away features and slowly asked for more money to unlock them; specifically with super likes. I’ve travelled alot and used tinder gold each time I travelled to find friends in new countries. Having five super likes a day helped me stand out from the crowd and led to fairly consistent matches. Even on a base account having access to the occasional super like was a huge help. Nowadays on a base tinder account you don’t have any super likes which is genuinely a huge detriment, and on tinder gold you get five a week. A massive decrease of 35 a week to 5. But the price remained the same??? A super like was a fantastic way to differentiate yourself in an environment where first impressions are everything. And for some guys and gals who are great people but not super models it can help hedge your bets to match with people you have a genuine interest with. I think taking that tool to consistently show interest in people you genuinely like was a bad decision for the company. I use to be a fairly consistent subscriber for Tinder Gold and I used to speak highly of it too, but with these new changes I will never again give this company my money..WordiestTombVersion: 13.8.0
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
Highly toxic and depressingWow Tinder has gotten to low as to pay for 5 star reviews. I’m seeing fake reviews with 5 stars saying “good”. So glad I stopped using this retched app. Needs to be banned from the apple store.
Too 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: 13.12.0
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
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
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
One sided…So obviously the app itself is fine. Easy to use. The one thing that bothers me is the “interests or passions”. They are all these left wing liberal passions but none for anyone else. For example: pro-choice, LGBTQ rights, feminism, vaccination stickers on profiles etc… so my question is where is the passion for pro-life? Or religion/God? The Bible? There are plenty of passions on the right that are just completely ignored. The more time I spend on this app the more I realize how it’s just another app from liberal California that’s “woke”
I put that I am unvaccinated, pro-life, love Jesus and looking for that in a partner on my profile on day 1 and I got an email from Tinder saying “they don’t approve of hateful messages to other users and if I do it again I will be banned” but I hadn’t even sent a message yet?? I’ve seen profiles say hail Satan, F trump, F republicans, let’s riot and burn buildings down on first date, looking for 3 ways, if you’re not vaccinated go kill yourself etc… but none of these profiles get taken down.
My message to other Jesus loving single people - either don’t download Tinder or just be straight up with your beliefs in your bio. Because 95 percent of tinder users have 0 values whatsoever and it’s a good way to weed them all out. Don’t change who you are or your beliefs for anyone. Don’t let pressure from media, social media, dating apps, friends make you give in to the evil..Rager2112Version: 13.12.0
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
Trans ProblemI’m a 22 year old man and I used to enjoy using this app until they went woke. They have 3 options for what you want to find/interested in- Women, Men, and Everyone. I have it set to Man seeking Women and yet I still keep coming across “Women” who are actually men. They need to include a 4th option for Other. I do not consider men who want to be women, women. They are still men and should either be in the mens category or in Other. I don’t want to see or be liked by MEN taking pictures dressed at a woman or even worse a MAN taking pictures in a bikini when their junk is still attached and showing. It is definitely not suitable for minors to be seeing it and let’s all be honest, it’s mostly minors who use the app. Please fix this issue tinder or else you’ll see a huge decline of users on your platform who don’t believe in that woke garbage. If they are born a man they should either select man or other and shouldn’t be shown to those of us who are normal people(heterosexual). These people are mentally ill and groomers who need help and definitely don’t need to be targeting our youth anymore than they already are. And don’t dare take down this review just because it hurts someone’s feeling. It’s my 1st amendment right to say my opinion and if you don’t like it I’ll take you to court on infringing on my 1st amendment. I’ll be documenting and recording my review..GezzyqueffyVersion: 13.15.0
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
Fix this pleaseI love the app. I really do. I used to be scared of people, too scared to even see food delivery drivers. I can't handle going to bars to meet people and I don't go out much. I used tinder to make friends and partners, and be able to meet them. I used the app for multiple years and even spent a lot of money on it. But the reason my rating is low is because the feeling i have right now. Recently, i'd been getting pop ups that made me redo the same test over and over to prove i'm human. And then when I went to get on today and respond to someone I was going to meet, it said I was banned. I get there are a lot of bot accounts and whatnot. But I've been loyally using tinder for years and wanted to keep doing so. There should be an appeal of some sort. Adapting a "you're banned no matter what" stance is unfair to your consumers. If it has happened to me, I can only imagine who else has dealt with. I, nor anyone else, went through the loops and holes to pay or get verified just to be banned out of nowhere. Imagine you actually get a strong connection with someone and are about to meet them. Then BAM, you're banned and will probably never speak to that person again.
All the other features I love, and really hope Tinder fixes this issue so that I can have my account back..SpaceyMuttVersion: 13.7.0
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
Disappearing matches and app liesIve noticed that sometimes when i get a match the entire profile ive matched with just goes away out of nowhere. At first, i thought it was because they chose to unmatch since thats happened before but then a few days later they will reappear but the conversations ive had with them will be gone. I once got 7 matches in one day and had fairly good talks with all of them but then they all disappear. Then a few days later they're all back with no notifications or anything they're just back so now it looks like im ignoring them. The app also lies to you about how many people are in your area to keep you on longer because if it really helped people to delete the app and actually find someone they'd lose money. I know this because after swipping for a few minutes the app will tell me to increase my range because no one is left. But coincidentally all of my top 10 picks for weeks will all be within 10 miles of me. And when i increase my distance range there will still be people in my area even though the app just told me no one is left. Terrible app that lies to you to make money and buggy matches. If you end up actually having a good talk with someone just get their snap and delete this app.ShfiekVersion: 13.8.0
Shady practices and easily exploited moderationMy complaints with tinder primarily fall into two categories: auto-moderation and the gender ratio.
Moderation is automated, with profiles being banned automatically after receiving *any* three reports, regardless of their validity or content. This is a common way to cut costs that is known to be easily exploitable by users. Men and women maliciously false report each other for rejection or not replying fast enough, leading to automated bans that cannot be contested. You can find videos of so-called “pickup artists” getting women banned after exchanging phone numbers so there will be less competition for her attention. I personally was banned after not replying to women for two weeks; several of them falsely reported me out of revenge and tinder support refuses to review the situation.
Tinder’s male-to-female ratio is notoriously poor, in some regions being as bad as 9-to-1 according to one study. This leads to unhappiness for everyone, as women are spammed and men are ignored. To give the impression of there being more women, tinder ignores your search preferences and shows you women far outside of your age and geographic ranges. I do not want to date 18 year olds, they cannot hold a conversation. If you want to see women no less than X years old, you must set your minimum age to X+3 in my experience. This is clearly not a bug..Robert MacTenjVersion: 13.10.1
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
On the Decline - New Features Make it Buggy and UnuseableUPDATE: App is completely useless and unusable now. Every time I send a message, it doesn't show up in the chat. Any time I type a message, the keyboard glitches and lags. App constantly crashes and freezes. Pictures and videos get removed for no reason, without any explanation why. Matches will randomly disappear and reappear again. This is with the most CURRENT and UP TO DATE version. Deleting this app now.
Tinder used to be a simple app - fast loading, easy to use, worth paying the cheap price for premium. It was perfect 5 years ago. Now the app has added so many over the top, ridiculous, useless features that everyone hates. Other users on the app immediately give you their phone number or social media handle right away because the app is so bad. Messages don't refresh unless you close and reopen the app several times, trying to type has significant lag and delay, the app randomly freezes and crashes constantly. If you listen to music while using it, it will cause your music to glitch too. My phone has been significantly slower since downloading the app, its like simulating what an iPhone virus would be like. Overall an irritating, buggy, glitchy, slow app that gets worse every update..SixcollarsVersion: 13.8.0
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
Absolutely Terrible!!Tinder has so many glitches it is not even funny. I had so many issues with the site. At some point in time, Tinder decided to just stop my account from working. I was texting a couple matches who verified all our messages disappeared and they weren’t receiving any of my messages. I tried messaging Tinder and no response.
I decided to delete the old account and create a new account losing all my contacts from before. After creating a new account, someone flagged my new account, and got put on a hold for a bit with no reason why or anything. It apparently got squared away after a day again with no explanation. Now out of the blue, Tinder once again just banned me permanently for no reason while I was talking to a few people that could have been real connections!
Now when I try to log on or create an account it says I am permanently banned! I am still trying to wrap my head around it, but I wouldn’t use Tinder ever again after this experience! The sad thing is that there were some really great connections I had made and was in the process and either meeting or about to text before all of this went down and no way now for me to connect with them! Terrible service who truly don’t care about connections! I will stick to Hinge!.Jmac.AttackVersion: 13.5.0
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
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
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
Problems for the RadarI think its problematic that I see people lower than my selected age range. Period. Or even higher, though both have gotten better (noticeably!) Also, I understand corporate business/marketing, but it would be nice to see more people in my area vs people thousands of miles away. It's frustrating knowing there are so many local options but I'm seeing people from Colombia and Australia as someone who lives in the Midwest. I KNOW the company wants to get people to pay for the premium/passport, but I'm here to actually find connections with people in my area; people I have colloquial things in common with, vs people across the world. Ultimately, the success of the users of this app in finding people to interact with is going to the best for the brand, long-term. I know many people are starting to delete their Tinder app because it's not as locally effective, like Hinge or Grindr. Also, the option to accept 'passport' accounts would be nice, that way we actually know what is going to appear on our profile, as far as distance relative to our location. (Not talking about people visiting an area, but people whose profiles say they're literally thousands of miles away. It's pretty pointless.).BlazePVersion: 13.8.0
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.

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
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
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
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
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

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. This is ridiculous. I haven’t even used the app so how is it possible that I’m banned???? Worst app ever🙄.Skyler3333Version: 11.23.0

Disgrace..This app is a disgrace and should be SHUT down immediately. Do not and I mean do not waste your money on this crap they just take your money and show likes but you never match even with payment, greed will be Tinder’s downfall remember these words..Stacy 2129Version: 11.26.0

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
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
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
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
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

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
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

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.
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.

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.

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

Banning people frenzyBE WARNED. We (a couple) have been on Tinder for close to 10 years. Met very nice people. But just last week, without warning and having had no contact in a very long while with any one, we received a message from Tinder when I open the app. It read:
Trying to reach someone to get help or at the very least an idea of what we did wrong, we only got the exact same message from this very cold and bizarre organization.
