Lord Erlexar - 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.
pappap02 - Fix your app and make appeals
I got banned from this app for no reason what so ever. I have had an account for a couple years and deleted it every now and then cause you sometimes want a break or just don’t feel like using it much. I had deleted mine and just made a new account recently. I had the app for maybe 3 hours turned it off went to bed. Next day, upon opening the app I see that I was banned. I had no matched with one person yet. All my pictures were very appropriate pictures. I didn’t even have anything in my bio. Following this I tried to find a phone number to call so I could speak to an actual person. Instead, what I find is an email. I email them and all it says is “we do not accept appeals at this time”. Have you ever? As one does I looked for alternatives and did research to see if it was just me. Clearly it is not. I have read so many reviews and heard of many stories where people have been banned for no reason. It seems that this is happening way too often. Also, you don’t respond to these reviews, only the ones that talk about the money or if they had spent money and were planning on deleting your app. So clearly there is priority over that, than to someone who has spent money on your app and did nothing wrong and you banned them. So, Tinder, get a number so people can talk to an actual person. I enjoyed using this app very much and this just disappoints me that this had to happen and you guys are taking care of it poorly.
luckybeard13 - Ban for no reason forever
Jambake - App doesn’t function as advertised, full of bots/spam.
The app allows you to set filters for age and distance, then completely disregards them. I am in my mid 20’s, and want to meet other people in their 20’s. I have my age limit set from 21-27, yet every other profile I see is for a 19 year old, 18 year old, or 30 year old.
Additionally, I have my distance set to <30 miles, and have turned the “global” setting off (because if I’m looking to actually meet up, why would I want to match with someone 6,000 miles away?) and STILL, just about every other person is outside my distance radius. I live in a very populated city area, I know there are more people within 30 miles of me but tinder has decided I don’t want what I say I want, instead I apparently want what they want me to see. I used to pay for the app, but never again unless some serious quality improvements are made. Showing me people outside my radius doesn’t make me more likely to use tinder, it makes me think tinder is broken. Same goes for the age thing.
I have also reported easily over 100 bots/spam accounts and it still is a huge issue - a liiitle bit more verification or something would be great.
As it stands, bumble and hinge are much better services. Bumble is getting greedy, locking formerly free features behind a paywall, and Hinge doesn’t have as many users as Tinder or Bumble, but as far as the experience goes? The other two are much better than Tinder.
Ghosted by Tinder - Banned for no reason...
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...
samirivpos - why take requests if you don’t make appeals
After 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.
JunkMonster86 - Tinder is a scam
I 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.
Dhrdhyijh - 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.
Anon8293929 - Negative Stars - the app constantly gives you the same people and routinely deletes your account
Don’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
objective interviews - 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...
Se@n331 - 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.
Shelovesjess - Tinder needs an appeals process ASAP-Banned for no reason
I 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
lilbennay - Super glitchy
I 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.
dbrii6482 - By far the worst / trashiest app with worse customer service than Walmart
I'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.
NeonBaboon - 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.
megasatan667 - I hope the developers see this
So 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.
Doomsday10tac2 - Scam alert / Age discrimination @ 30. Really?
Tinder’s pricing is determined by age. After 30 (my 30th birthday was a week ago) the prices jump substantially. All this made me do was cancel my subscription and elect to never purchase an item from them again. Sooo, your marketing team with online degrees from University of Phoenix might want to broaden their data collection.
Adding: tinder throws out this offer to upgrade to tinder plus for approx $34 a month. THEN, they offer to upgrade to tinder gold for an extra $3 a month. However, once you click on the upgrade button if changes to nearly $9/ month for 6 months. Definitely seems like false advertising and am attempting to scam people that don’t pay close attention to these sort of transactions. Shady as ever. Also, why are bots still a problem on here? I report at least a dozen bots a day...
Also, I was banned for saying “no liberals” in my account. Likely by some liberal troll that works at Tinder. However, what Tinder doesn’t know is I have the time and plenty of disposable income to buy a new phone, change my number, get a new card, change my Apple ID, create a fake email address, pay someone to ensure my router and IP address aren’t traceable. Lol, sorry Tinder, not smart enough for me 😂
MsGenki - Could always be better
Let me preface this by saying I’ve used a large amount of dating apps such as OKCupid, Plenty of Fish, Hinge, Meetme, and etc. over the span of 8 years but Tinder is probably the go to app; it’s fast, easy and pretty much condenses all that I want from most other apps into a simpler format. However, with this app being infamous for mainly hookups or casual encounters, the pickings for someone more substantial (platonic or romantic) is slim to say the least. As well, like in other apps, the amount of empty profiles or spam accounts overwhelms the amount of real people. I do wish that there was a sort of requirement of word count in each profile so that if someone IS serious about matching, they have a (somewhat) cohesive bio to show this. While I’ll always enjoy the interface and the simplicity of Tinder and don’t personally see myself off the app anytime soon (especially given the time I’m writing this) I do wish there were a more comprehensive way to weed out the casual from serious or the hookups from genuine friendships WITHOUT having to download yet another app.
wiexenspei - Tinder
Tinder 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.
Jarv960 - 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!
jacks1821 - Banned for no reason
I’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.
$uperman708 - Matches are rigged
First 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.
K watts - Discrimination
This 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.
I Gotta iPhone - They never fix ANYTHING
I’ve had the app for about 4 years now through college, and it’s been buggy since the first day i downloaded it. Will constantly crash, and it doesn’t seem they ever fix it. Currently i get profiles that say they’ve super liked me, but then after a right swipe, no match. This is just the beginning of the never ending bug cycle. But don’t worry about the bugs, they’ve already hatched up their new and improved membership plans! 🙄
Also good luck getting matches because, like I said the app never works properly. I’ve had a couple of successful meetups from the app, but they come in spurts. App is filled with mostly bot profiles and females who are “just looking for friends” or promoting IG and use Tinder as a power trip or confidence booster instead of its intended purposes. Also I’ve tested a theory a few times, and Tinder is just extremely inconsistent with its algorithm. One time I can have over 100 matches in a few months, and another time I’ll struggle to get 5 matches.
Sadly still probably the best dating app there is, which is why I gave 2 stars instead of 1, but you’d think in 2021 we could do better.
autumnrenee1611 - I got banned for no reason
I 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?! 🤷🏻♀️
D.L.W.E - Probably not worth it.
I’ve used this app a little...but once I felt brave enough to put myself out there, I uploaded all decent pictures that contained no lewdness at all and filled out basically everything I could think of on the profile (contained no vulgarity either). Experience was going okay for just a little bit, but as soon as I begin seeing I apparently had some likes on my profile one day then I’m locked out of the app/my profile and told I’ve been banned. No explanation or anything from the support team or anything like an email, nothing. I’ve asked many times to have my account reviewed so they can see nothing was wrong with my profile or the messages but they just kept stating that “you’ve been banned for violating our terms”. So, here I am still single and unable to use what I thought was a good app because Tinder felt I violated the app by casually using the app like most people would? Like I said, my profile contained no vulgar images or words or anything like that nor did the few rare messages I got to send. So I’m confused and upset with my experience. If you’re thinking about spending money on the app, reconsider as they might just ban you for no reason as well.
Señor Sherzai - Not real
I’ve been using it for a while but I noticed that you will have a rush of likes in 1 or 2 weeks. But after that everything gets slow down. Even if you had tinder gold plus but it’s still the same. Most of the time it’s like someone liked me on the tinder like 3 to 4 people in a day but when I opened the app and there is no likes. What I’m thinking that they might like me or swiped me right but you guys are trying to take it off from me. Like giving me false hope and there is no likes. Who knows? Because maybe you want me to continuously use your plus membership monthly. No, but people should know if this is what you’re doing to them. And what is happening with me also happening to them, means I’m not wrong. Also I swiped everyone for 2 weeks like literally everyone. Yet not like back. At least one. Only one could like me back. But no one did. It doesn’t mean I may not look someone according to their interest. It also can mean that you took my every likes from them that they don’t know if I liked them or no. If this is how a business runs to take out the likes and make people keep using continuously the membership, then it’s the foulest thing that I ever seen.
idk1762 - One of the glitchiest apps I have ever used
I 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.
kennanjlukacs - Tinder Needs to Up Their Game
I 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.
Gale22 - Highly toxic and depressing
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.
Rick7898 - Banned out of nowhere for no reason, customer support won’t even say why
After using tinder for about 6 years, opened the app a few days ago only to find I’d been banned with zero warnings or any indications of wrongdoing. I always acted respectfully with everyone and didn’t have anything that could possibly be considered controversial on my profile apart from some very tame shirtless pictures and a few anime related memes.
My advice, the app is fine but don’t spend a single cent on it, in case this happens to you. Banned suddenly without even a single warning, and no one will even tell you why or hear what you have to say. I lost all my matches and connections and years of effort, and they don’t even have the decency to tell me why or give me a single warning about any “wrongdoing”.
MrFrostingbutt - More like, Bug Night
I’ve seen some other reviews mentioning the fact they completely broke their app with this update so I’ll just move on to the review of Swipe Night. It’s worse than any B-movie i’ve ever seen. I never thought you could make a story where the protagonist is background extras. First of all, cell phones don’t have static because they’re not analog TVs, so the glitching effect makes no sense. All the ambulances you see are from the 1970s because that’s all they had access to I guess. The sets are tiny and empty, I guess because the portrait aspect ratio doesn’t allow you to see much of the environment, so maybe that’s actually good filmmaking then. Obviously the acting is terrible and they try way to hard to make people sound “hip” and cool. Maybe they based the dialog on all y’all’s chat logs and some of you really talk like that. It’s really ironic that the app won’t let me click anything but the Swipe Night video plays fine. I was so bored I sat through a decent chunk of it until the bugs came back and I couldn’t swipe to make a choice anymore. Oh also I HIGHLY doubt that view counter is real. there’s no way over a million people could pay attention to that Z-movie.
Elijah219 - Shadow bans
Tinder used to be amazing. When I first started using tinder, I’d wake up to dozens of matches a day. In my first week I’d have easily over a hundred matches and countless conversations with some pretty cool people. I made lots of new connections whether online or in person. But idk what’s happened over the last year or so. After the last couple times I’ve downloaded, I get almost no matches. It will say I have 100+ people who swiped on me but will literally get no more than 2-3 matches a week. My messages don’t go through, and matches randomly disappear during a good conversation. It’s extremely frustrating and the app is definitely playing people. Even the secret admirer function tells me to pick one of 4 cards that swiped on me... but when I pick one it says better luck next time. Every single time... there’s so many better apps out there that don’t do this. One starts with a B and another with an H. I’d highly suggest trying those out and deleting this useless app. This review would get one star except for the fact that tinder used to be good and I would’ve gave it 4-5 stars a couple years ago.
artie ravioli - Banned for no reason. No customer service.
I had no problems with Tinder for the amount of time I’ve had it downloaded (which has been about a year, maybe two), until recently. I’ve never done anything inappropriate, never said anything inappropriate, my pictures were not inappropriate. Nothing I’ve done in the last two-ish years has warranted a warning, let alone a ban. However, as soon as I decided to purchase Tinder Gold on January 15th, I was banned from the app about three days later. I did absolutely nothing to get banned, I barely even talked to anyone in that timespan, but the conversations I DID have were just pleasantries and small talk. Nothing warranting a ban. I tried to look for something that would let me contact Tinder, but there was nothing. What kind of app doesn’t offer some sort of customer service for things like this? And the “no appeals” thing makes NO sense. People who do nothing wrong and spend money on this app end up getting banned for no reason, and there’s no way for them to contact someone to try and fix it? No thank you. Add appeals and actual customer service OUTSIDE of the app so you stop stealing money from people!!!
Autumn Kim - Terrible treatment
Over quarantine I was casually swiping through tinder and matching with people to talk to and possibly go out with as soon as restrictions eased up. To my surprise one day I tried to log in and got told I was banned. I never posted any photos or anything in my bio that went against the guidelines. I also tried to keep my conversations with others on there clean and avoided any words that weren’t appropriate. I did update my bio the day before to say that if people didn’t support BLM to swipe left (since there unfortunately a lot of men I met on there that didn’t). I was given no warnings. I have no idea why I was banned and when I messaged the help center to ask why I was, their response was that they didn’t accept appeals and wouldn’t unban me. When I pressed further to ask why I had been, they wouldn’t even respond to me. Terrible customer service.
At this point I have to assume I got banned for expressing my political views on there. Though I keep reading a bunch of other reviews of people who have had a similar experience to me. Yet Tinder still doesn’t have an appeals process for these instances? Tinder needs to do better. People should not be treated this way.
Fizzykhalifa - Bans for no reason
I’ve been using Tinder since it first came out and I thorough enjoyed the app! I actually met some really cool people which I still talk to.
Now... this app is useless. I understand that people can be predatory but the practices that Tinder is doing is awful. They are banning people for no reason. In my case I got banned for nothing because the worst message I sent was “hey cutie”. My roommate got banned even though he didn’t message ANYONE. When I went online I saw that this problem was prolific and everywhere. They ban people for absolutely no reason and without any proof. If they receive one report, you’re done. So theoretically, a guy, who doesn’t have a good chance with the ladies, can lower the dating pool by making a fake account and reporting any dude they find to be more attractive than them. And when you try to email tinder about the situation, you get an automated reply and ZERO help at all. The email they sent me said “we do not check for what you did and we do not unban or review accounts.” This type of practice from Tinder is illogical and sexist. And it will eventually lead to the demise of this app. I cannot wait to see this app be removed from the App Store.
ChrisVojkovich - SO MANY FAKE PROFILES
I’ve been a user for a couple years now, and originally I would have meaningful conversation with multiple matches per week. After some taking time off from the app and finally coming back to it, more than 75% of the profiles I swipe on all have a bio that reads something to the tune of “Wanna see more? Ask for my private Snapchat.”Needless to say if you are unlucky enough to match with one of these people they instantly send you a contact card, unprompted. Currently where I live the amount of 24 year old women named “Kimberly” is astonishing. Clearly some scammer is creating fake profiles and trolling the site to get people to join another site and steal their info. The creators and developers of this application definitely do not have profiles and do not actively use the app. If you are in the market to get scammed, or match up with a chat bot, then this is the perfect app for you. If you are an actual human being looking to match with another actual human being, then definitely do not download this app!! It really is the worst parts of the internet condenses into one location. HUGE WASTE OF TIME AND THANK GOD I NEVER WASTED MONEY FOR THIS TRASH BAG APP MASQUERADING AS A DATING SITE.
AudieP - Go somewhere else
Tinder seems like a good concept, but after using the app I’ve noticed a lot of fake profiles and or a lot of age discrepancies. I even hung out with a guy who stated he was 22 on the app then come to find out he was actually 19. While tinder seems to go to great lengths to get accurate information and a lot of verifying it’s also kind of annoying I have to give out all that information not knowing if tinder will sell it... I also think there’s an issue with banning. The lacking of an appeals process and relying on user complaints or the algorithm to ban people is pure laziness on the tinder team. People get wrongfully banned or banned without knowing why and it’s ridiculous. There’s a lacking of customer service and usually when you want to complain or contact the company you are just redirected over and over again to already posted information On the site. Then when you do finally submit an issue they’ll send you an email with regurgitated information. Truly this app is a for profit business now constantly pushing for you to upgrade to tinder gold or buy super likes and doesn’t seem to care about anything other than that.
newtinderuser - They don’t help
I got tinder and was talking to some guys I matched up with when suddenly I got banned, it didn’t even tell me I was banned it just stated that I need to verify my age with my ID which I tried to do, but it wouldn’t even load. I then tried contacting customer service and even sent them a photo of my ID to verify my age, and all I got in response was some crud about how I cannot make an appeal to unban my account, which I didn’t even know was banned at that point. Then when I tried to respond to the email they told me I could not contact them through it so I would have to restart my process all over again, Long story short don’t get tinder and also don’t subscribe to any premium or gold either as I’ve seen in a lot of other comments. I also got tinder gold and used it for about 2 hours before my account was banned so I just lost 15 dollars for no reason essentially. Unless they actually fix my account I will not use tinder and will make sure none of my friends or family ever use it either. This was very disappointing and upsetting, I was very excited to try tinder for the first time and it turns out to be a horrendously managed app.
THiR$TY - skeptical
Well I just started to download this app and while it was in the process I went to the reviews... I personally value reviews from users because I’ve had terrible experiences with some applications. After reading that apparently they banned an account without cause or explanation is unsettling, but the fact they gave a generic response to the person when they reached out to support is totally bogus. And the fact they don’t have a support number with live reps make me discouraged. If you have ever had a problem with some program that had horrible support you know what I mean. I would rather use a glitchy buggy app with real people providing high quality support than a nice smooth friendly GUI app that has no support. I wish they would impose regulations mandating these companies to provide phone, email, and chat support. Besides think about it- a person who doesn’t support their product .... I know I take pride in things I do and lack of support says they don’t care about their product/service or their users. Step your game up and stop being greedy losers. For real probably gonna just delete this without creating an account now.
DanFingerMan - Trouble Unsubscribing
Why is it near impossible to unsubscribe? I logged into Tinder on the their website, clicked on settings and clicked “Manage Payment Account”.
Then it shows a message saying I subscribed on the native app and that I should unsubscribe from there. No problem. I get on the app and go to my settings and guess what? THERE IS NO “Manage Payment Account” in the settings tab! So I try unsubscribing via Apple ID (iTunes), even though I paid directly with CC. Nothing was found under subscriptions either. Okay. I try to look for a link to customer support and there is literally no way to contact support unless you call them. Are you serious? Make it easier to unsubscribe for the sake of everything fair! I’m still stuck trying to figure out how the hell to unsubscribe before I get charged on my card again. It’s ridiculous how the developers remove the payment option on the app.
In all fairness, the app is decent and you can find people to meet if you really put the effort into it. Just be careful when subscribing.
adam_and - There’s always been bugs
Tinder’s goal is to help you meet people, and it does that well, but getting there can be a struggle with all these bugs. The app constantly breaks when I swipe from a profile too the messages tab, things get hung up, even on a newer iPhone. Sometimes the app crashes. My biggest pet peeve is the fact that unless I turn on every form of notification for Tinder, I have a notice inside every conversation telling me to turn on notifications. I get a lot of notifications from Tinder, so I would like to have them sent to Notification Center without a banner, badge, or sound. The app constantly is reminding me to “turn notifications on!” even when they ARE on, just sent to the Notification Center. When I DO get notifications in my Notification Center, they never stack, so tinder notifications take up my whole screen. SOOO annoying. I like this app and I know it can be better, that’s why I’m being critical. Great work, but I hate the fact that my favorite dating app can be so frustrating.
onlyReeco - ???
I loved using tinder it was my go to dating app whenever I was looking to meet new people but I logged in one day and found that my account was banned? All appropriate pictures, no hate speech whatsoever, everything was peachy clean yet here I am with a banned account. Of course you can’t call because that would be way too easy so when I reached out to support to AT LEAST see why I got banned they wouldn’t tell me and told me that once you’re banned you’re pretty much banned for life. So here I am banned for no reason at all and can’t even learn what it was that triggered my banning in the first place. I’m all for the safety of others and making sure nobody is offended but how do you expect people to want to use an app and spread good things about it when there is absolutely no communication between owner and operator. Establish a real point of contact. Give people answers. I’ve seen that I’m not the only one who’s had this happen and quite frankly that’s ridiculous. Do better tinder. You’re losing out on people who thoroughly enjoyed the app over nothing. Truthfully I don’t even want to drop one start but I can’t post without doing so.
chickwithattitude - Worst company ever go to hinge
This company allows people to ban you for no reason. I was banned within one hour of opening my profile to women. When I had the same profile for 2 months prior with just men. No nudity no harassment and when I asked for an investigation they told me though they say the offer investigations they won’t be doing them. They allow men to put down they just want their privates sucked. They allow people to put down they are drug dealers. But I got banned for no reason and they won’t even tell me why they just keep saying I violated the rules but not what rule or anything cause they do it without evidence. Plus they keep the page up I am still getting guys hitting me up asking to take me to the beach. Please remove the profiles you block I don’t need men hitting me up cause my ig was attached still. Why say you investigate when your lazy company refused to. To bad I couldn’t give ZERO stars cause what you did was a violation of my rights as I did nothing wrong. Wow what a disgusting place we live in that we are quarantined yet places you can go to find people to chat with ban and you but leave your profile in limbo
Joshua Helm - It’s alright
Given the benefit of the doubt the app does seemingly have a lot of issues but overall it’s not the WORST experience possible. I think one of the biggest issues is the various prices for Tinder gold. Now they want to charge me $45/mo (I’m 19) whereas they want to charge my friend (keep in mind who is also 19) $15/mo. I’m not too sure what’s with the price discrepancy but I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s experienced this. $15 seems reasonable but $45 a month? Definitely won’t be happening. As for the user base, you find a LOT of bots but thats to be expected you can find a numerous amount of bots on seemingly any “dating app” that’s just how it is. So I won’t mark off too many points for that but another issue is the lack of finding people who like you. I could swipe right on everyone like a mad man (which I don’t WANT TO DO) and still not find a single person who liked me (which it’s not like I have 0 likes I have a good bit) I know this is probably a ploy for me to get the tinder gold but then we go back to the $45/mo issue.
Trey Can’t Skate - Scam, Needs to be Removed from Store & Editors Choice
Complete scam. I’ve been using the app on and off for 3 years and have. not. once. matched with a real person. It tells you you have multiple likes just to get you to spend money on gold, because it will never actually show you these accounts. I paid for gold for about 2 months last year and it was revealed that every account that had liked me was a bot account 1000+ miles away, and then I never got anymore likes after paying for the subscription. Used boosts, changed discovery settings, uploaded different pictures, changed bio, nothing. On top of that, it then banned me for no reason and customer service is non existent.
I recently decided to give the app another try, a friend let me use their phone number to sign up, and it is the same exact thing. For 5-6 days it has been telling me I have 18 likes but no amount of swiping has given me a match or decreased the number of likes. It also starts to freeze and crashes if you swipe left more than 5 times in a row. Tinder only exists to get your hopes up and steal your money. Garbage, scam app.
none Ya17 - Banned when they didn’t help me appropriately
When I contacted tinder intially in regards to being unable to access my account due to me getting a new phone number. Everytime I went through the reset steps it returned back to me having to access my phone number I previously had. Remind you this has happened before where I had my number changed and they were able to resolve my problem before. This time after telling me to use the other step instead of verifying through my number which I did. Which failed because it still circulated me back to the step of verifying through my old number. Tinder support then send me a email that I’m banned! This is upsetting after tinder support failed me twice in assisting me with this matter. This is legit reason they can be sued for. In regards to being banned and then violating their own terms and agreement. After giving me the wrong solution to my initial problem. All that was mention was that I violated terms and agreement. I read it all and I have not violated anything after using tinder in and out over the years.
Max Power to the Max - Shady on many levels
If you’re not an attractive guy and are just average or fugly this isn’t for you, you’ll get taken advantage of and sent to the pit of ignored darkness AKA “shadow ban” if you’re in it, your profile is hidden from literally anyone, your likes never actually get sent, super likes don’t, either, and super boosts don’t do anything either. The worst part is you’re not told of this profile status and they WILL let you pay for gold which does nothing other than take your money. They’re making their money off of guys hoping for a connection. They track and store your pictures, when they recognize them you’re immediately shadow banned, if you try to make a new profile and previous was banned they’ll ban it, they track your specific phone serial numbers and ID’s, your IP address, if you were ever banned if their system recognizes any of above mentioned you’ll get banned again. Your only chance is a new device, phone number, IP address, emails, new pictures, and don’t be ugly anymore. Then pray you don’t make any of the many easy mistakes to not get shadow banned again. It’s all ridiculous.
PunkFiction666 - Terrible service
Tinder does not have a way to appeal the decision that they make to terminate accounts, and will not offer any explanation as to why they have done so aside from saying “sorry, you can’t come back”. It is obviously a big enough issue that they have a section to contact customer service about it, so I find it ridiculous that they don’t have any way to have someone review it. Get better algorithms or offer a way to appeal. Terrible app, horrible customer service.
Channon.V - Banned for no reason
Apparently this app likes to Ban people after they subscribe to Tinder Plus. I read the community guidelines and there was Never a moment that I could say I violated the guidelines. They literally said one of my pictures was reported but idk why, as it’s a picture of me standing outside of a restaurant fully clothed! How the hell does a picture of someone wearing a peacoat get banned?! They never explained their reason for banning me. I sent them an email to provide me detail information as to why I was banned. Never cussed at anyone while replying to messages. Wasn’t even soliciting anything or requesting people to cash app me as I’ve heard some people do & idk why those accounts don’t get banned! I was legit just trying to look for someone I could connect with or befriend. If I got banned because I was changing my location well that is stupid because they literally added Global to the app. They need to manage this app better because if you google I got banned from tinder you can see how many people are having this issue. To the tinder community I will only change my review if y’all unban me.

R@z3r47 - Overall Satisfied
I am a regular user of Tinder. What I hate is the fact that for the amount of money I’m paying for membership, customer support staff don’t hesitate to take your money and then not reply.
I constantly get issues with this annoying “would you like to video chat with this person”. I keep pressing no and then it freezes my app. I constantly have to log in again each time it pops in, so I can barely use it. I constantly messaged the support staff 6 times the last two mo the and no reply. Don’t know if this is a joke, but for me to pay something that barely works is so unhelpful. I hope this goes to the app developer so the staff are trained into mitigating these errors.
jordan120978 - Tinder is scamming you
Have being using tinder for a while now. Started having issues with my account, tried to contact tinder, kept getting automated messages from agents who accused me of fraud. Very disappointed with the service, emailed multiple times yet they gave the same response, in the end they could not fix my issue, I tried to get a refund directly. Within hours of sending my message tinder decided to ban me. Being a paying customer who has used them often I was very disappointed, had a full 2 weeks left on my subscription plus multiple little purchases they decided to take my money leaving me with no refund of purchase even though they banned me from my account for violations of policy that are and never explained to you so u know what ur doing wrong. I am 100% sure that tinder just decided to ban me and take my money cause they could not fix my account instead of trying to help me they took my money and banned me leaving me with no way of using the service I payed for with my own money. Instead they scam u into paying for their services yet when it comes to it and a issue occurs they will just take your money and ban your saying you’ve done something wrong when u haven’t. I find tinders actions to be very poor to accuse a customer of fraud I think is disrespectful and very bad on their behalf.
james-potti - Honest review after 3 years of use
Been using this app for a few years now.. and i can honestly say there’re so many better apps, tinder is super overrated and only allows for the small minority of lucky people to become more visible to others. It can drive you insane, because no matter how perfect your profile is, and how attractive you look, you’re most likely to just be in a spot where you don’t get a match for a week.. the algorithm system is horribly developed, and the people behind it are obviously no experts on how it should all work. I’ve been getting so much more luck on hinge, even though I’ve perfected both accounts, not to brag but many have said I’m around a 9\10, but looks shouldn’t even matter obviously, its just my point is no matter how much effort you put into something on tinder it always screws you over unless you keep ip with the ridiculous algorithm such as swiping on people in a perfectly consistenct order.. too many right swipes=you’re desperate.. too many lefts= you’re not giving people a chance.. theres not even an in between.
Anyway, download bumble, hinge or even pure.. they all give you a chance, unlike tinder
Thanks for reading, have a great day :)
KrustyKrabbie - The app is BROKEN
The app is completely dysfunctional. It crashes instantly every time I open it, so I need to then open it a second time, but then it inevitably lags, freezes and crashes. I have to use the desktop website if I actually want it to work. I have Gold but the “likes” interface is useless. What is the point in knowing I have thousands and thousands of likes but the only way to sort through them is to manually scroll through (on desktop, there is no chance of this working on the app). There NEED to be filtering options, such as oldest to newest, age specification, distance, recently active, interests, etc. In addition, when clicking on people who have liked you, it should automatically show you the next person, so you could swipe through them rather than having to click on every single individual profile. If I swipe left on someone who has shown up in my “people who liked you”, I do not want to be shown to them again. There have been people who I have swiped left on SIX TIMES, but they just keep liking me and clogging up my likes feed. The video chat pop up is also very annoying.
samvella56 - Appalling customer service
First of all, I want to preface this review by stating that the app in and of itself, is rather user-friendly. It’s become a lot less buggy and a lot more stable, however that’s about where the accolades stop.
My account has been banned for over a month now and I am still yet to be notified of the reason why, as I keep coming up short.
I have had numerous “interactions” with Lauren and Jesse from Tinder, however I use the term interactions VERY loosely as the responses I get are simply just the standard, templated, and robotic responses. I have even tried to reach out to Tinder and Tinder AU on Instagram, but to no avail, in the hopes that an actual person would take a look into my account and see that there should not have been any just cause for banning my account.
The app itself, great. The customer service experience, however - absolutely shocking and poor. Not to mention the fact that for the amount of time this app has been around, Tinder still does not offer an appeals process for banned accounts. So basically, “if you’re banned then too bad, bye”. Biggest joke.
zerviii - Buggy mess and a money trap
Been using tinder for a good long time, years in fact.
For your average looking guy it will Bury you until you buy a boost, it will hide matches from you until you buy gold, which is too expensive $40. I only have 4 matches and 13 pending matches that I’ve had for like 3+ weeks. The pending matches are blurred, but you can make out just a bit to know who it is. I noticed that 3 of those 13 pending matches, where people I already matched with. I wasn’t matching with anyone for weeks. So today I finally caved in and got gold, miraculously the people I know I matched with vanished from pending. So I was left with 10 pending matches, with those 10 pending matches, were mostly people who using passport which makes the distance filter redundant. 2 people where near me, I thought if I match with them all, it might trick tinder in to thinking I’m more desirable and boost me.. but nope, i swiped right on them all and.... ALL of my pending matches failed to match.. so I spent $40 and got in return was regret. So tinder makes me fill ugly and now makes me feel dumb...
Revenge Banned! - Revenge Banning with no appeals process
Tinder bans you if another user reports you (with no evidence) and will not allow you to appeal the ban or reinstate your account.
When I left a date early after feeling very uncomfortable, he verbally abused, insulted me and followed behind me slanging profanities!
He immediately blocked me on Tinder, which was fine with me, except he has also reported me to Tinder and they have in turn banned me - a Revenge Banning! I have provided evidence of messages sent to friends after the date explaining what had happened and asked them to review my Tinder history however keep getting an automated response about their term and conditions. I have been made to feel like a criminal when I have contacted them asking for help and an explanation. So far the support team have not been helpful and are facilitating this mans harassment and intimidating behaviour. Tinder need to take these enquires seriously and provide a true response as a lot of us are out here doing the right thing and are victims of cruel behaviour.
3yvonne - Not good enough tinder not good enough
I’ve been an og tinder user since it’s conception in 2012 and all I can say is I’m disappointed, it’s over saturated by men who don’t know how to talk to women or all just want to “hit it and quit it”
This makes it hard to have a decent conversation with someone let alone potentially make a connection and the possibility of a date. I mean yes men have their issues, but majority of the people on tinder seem to have commitment issues but isn’t it a dating app?
Yes I’m thankful that tinder has upped their trans awareness/visibility with including more gender pronouns and marks for the LGBTQIA+ community however there seems to be one big flaw in their system. Yes I’ve matching with men but said men either unmatch me because of the fact that I’m a transwoman or they just don’t talk at all. I mean hey I have the same issues with bumble but least the competitor makes women make the first move and gives them pop up questions or prompts/new opening liners they can message to their match and potentially get the conversation flowing (take note tinder) lol
Those fast chats? Or whatever they were called they came in and out real quick just like the last guy I was with… which is sad cause at least with those fast chats I get to have a conversation with someone prior to them judging for being trans then after matching they can either continue or match as they please.
Anyway this is my 2 cents, hope y’all fix things
the real ItzAnimal - A feature recommendation
As a user of this app, unluckily I have really bad genetics which make me look ugly which leads to me not getting any matches even with memberships. I thought a clever way of getting people to match, making a random chat room where two people can talk back and forth between each other based on a persons settings and preferences. Through this chat no pictures are shown until after a good chat the two automatically match allowing to see each other’s profile. I believe this would be a good feature and would help people meet new people by personality! Please try to get this into circulation of the developers!!
Brooke_larry - Was great until...
I enjoyed the tinder app more than other dating apps. Everything was great until I was banned unexpectedly and without a reason given. I went through their terms of service and possible reasons as to why I’d be banned but none of them seemed to align with what was on my account. This happened just after I deleted my account and re signed back up to reset it too. I have sent through a ticket days ago trying to at least find out why with no response as of yet and a message saying “we may not respond to you individually” under the subject of bans. No appeal options? Not even a reason given? A bit unfair honestly. I understand there’s important safety aspects to consider but a reason should at least be given.
IG user 1234567 - The video chat suggestion is too persistent
This feature is nice to have, and it’s good to know you can video chat while staying safe on the site without sharing your phone number. BUT having the suggestion box take up half my phone screen while I’m messaging is SOOO annoying. Also, when I hit “ not interested”, the person I was chatting to was instantly unmatched. Happened twice before I realised.
TiginAus - Still no way of reporting many abusive and scan profiles
Twice now I’ve recently had fake profiles attempt to scam one of which had even passed tinder’s verification process so it’s very worrying that the blue tick itself is not something you can trust.
The worse part is that if the scammer suspects you’re onto them they can unmatch you before you can report them.
This is a massive failing in Tinder’s risk management as it allows you only to report profiles that are currently matched.
Simple fix. If you are unmatched then yes you can’t message them but still allow the profile to be visible in your chat so you can report the person.
If Tinder is genuine about creating a safe community then they must have ways for members to report abusive or scam behaviours at all times not just when you’re still matched
To make matters worse when you try to go into the app to search for support and enter eg ‘contact’ or ‘scam’ and his search, nothing comes up and there’s no way within the app to contact tinder. Instead you have to Google them.
In this case I did take screenshots of the profile and conversation and forwarded these by email to tinder, only because the first time someone attempted to scam me I can no record of it because they unmatched first.
Ceara-Lee - Poor service, false advertising and false accusations
I’ve been using tinder a long time, and recently I’ve been subjected to numerous accusations from tinder of inappropriate behaviour and violating community standards, which is completely false, and threatened to have my account banned.
Upon approaching tinder customer support I was told they can’t tell me what the behaviour was and just kept being told to read the community standards (which I have)
I also had an image removed and tinder accused it of being “distasteful”, but there was nothing sexual or distasteful about it.
I’m also a paying member and don’t get all my features, and the notifications saying “you have over 100 likes” are false, I have tinder gold and I can see how many likes I have, it’s a false advertisement to lure you into swiping more.
Braedogs - Lost my account, only to find out it’s using the subscription
So my account stopped working, I didn’t get logged out or anything, it just stopped working. Couldn’t message people and stuff like that. So I made a new account, stupidly with the same email. I then, after spending money, find out the account is somehow still there and is using the subscription I paid for on my new account. I have tried for ages to try and get back into that original account but I literally can’t, it’s like it is actually deleted and gone, but somehow still using the subscription that wasn’t meant for it. I’ve been told that my account is still up and people can see it which is super gross because I can’t even change that now. This app is broken, any help would be much appreciated.
LisaJayne12 - Banned for No Reason
I have used this app on and off over the years and whilst it has never been the greatest, it seems to have a lot more people on it.
Just recently I was banned for no reason though and after trying to contact Tinder, I got a generic response and that they couldn’t help me.
I have done NOTHING wrong and I have NOT violated their user terms or anything like that, so I’m very confused why this happened.
I’ve heard other people have had the same issue, so is this a common thing now, Tinder? Banning people for the fun of it? Surely you can give us a reason as to why you’ve done this to our account? You want people to like you and your app, yet when it comes to something like this you literally just kick us out with no explanation... pathetic.
lucatheghost - Show me people in the same country at least!
Hey tinder just wondering, what was the point of the new ‘only show people in this range’ switch under the distance preference slider if half the people in my stacks still live thousands of KM away??? Idc if you want to bring the world together during these troubled times or whatever, I want to swipe on people I can actually meet. I assumed that’s what this new switch would do but either I guess not, or it just doesn’t work. Oh and while I’m here, why do I keep losing chats with people and they return to the matches bar at the top of the tab? I think it’s a new match but no, it’s someone I matched and talked with 8 months ago! Get it together pls xx
court-m - Got banned for no reason
I have been using tinder for a couple of years now. On and off.
I normally have my card hidden during the day while I’m at work, and at night when I’m home I’ll go on, make my card visible and have a few swipes here and there. My account apparently got banned. I don’t have any inappropriate photos or messages. I was barely even on the app. I emailed tinder and all I got back was saying that my account violates the terms and conditions of the app. I would like to know their reasons for blocking my account? Because there is thousands of other users who are in the same boat as me and don’t have a reason as to why? Or what they so called did.
Meeno Zen - Account banned for no apparent reason
I have been using Tinder on and off for a little while. My account was recently banned out of nowhere. I am certain that I did not violate any policies, yet my account was banned without giving any explanation. Tinder doesn’t have a resolution channel, since I assume it is cheaper to sacrifice a minority of wrongfully banned users than actually having people to assist its customers. I am in no way a unique case. I understand there are cases where a ban is well deserved, but even then an explanation or a warning should be offered beforehand.
Your account could be banned without cause. Tinder has no resolution channel leaving you out of pocket. Think twice before investing any time or money in the platform.
Leonhan - Unbelievable activity and attitude
I have been using tinder for 3 years, which I have got golden membership in my account with more than 450 super likes stocked which I haven’t use. I could be a very regular user for the app, and during the using, I have not even abuse anyone for language or attitude. But suddenly one day I received msg that my account has been banned cuz of I against policy???? If I match someone I am super nice and easy going chat and running conversation, compare with most of ppl there just ask meet up, I am much appreciate with each person.
Very disappointed result on this app, I have no idea of any other has the same or tinder just want people pay them and give you no reason and kick you out.
mickeyjtee - Ripoff with spam!
Honestly why people pay the price for this app blows my mind. It costs more than my monthly phone bill. There are so many spam profiles offering massages etc and, while tinder tries to control it, they really can’t. Lastly, the new feature “vibes”. Feels like it’s made for prepubescent teens. The question asked to “vibe” are pathetic and aimed at kids. Aren’t adults the ones who use this app? Lastly the constant reminder to pay gold. “You missed a match! Go gold to find out who it was!” Wait… I literally just swiped no on someone and now you want me to pay to see who I said no to? Hahahahaha!
Garbage app is garbage. Do yourself a favour and avoid their steep prices. It functions fine for free 🤷🏼♂️
Natsuxlucy_official - New possible feature
So I’m a strong Christian and would like to date a likeminded Christian guy. Seems simple enough... nope. There is no option other than ‘spirituality’ to define a persons beliefs and you also can’t search for these features in a person either.
I’ve put myself on tinder, used a boost and received nearly 400 requests overnight which is lovely if they were filled with the right people.
Please can you allow christians or people from other beliefs to identify themselves as christians/ muslims/ Hindus/Buddhists etc.. would make the ‘spirituality’ tag a whole lot less confusing and easier to navigate and connect!
Ash_xoxoxox - Banned for no reason
I have been using tinder for the past 3 to 4 years on and off. I have recently been banned for apparently violating their terms and conditions, I read the terms and conditions and I have not broken any one of them. I have emailed them and again they’re just coming back with your violating our terms and conditions or we cannot discuss the matter any further with you. How is this fair when I do not talk inappropriately, I have no inappropriate photos and I’m not a fake person. I have match led with people who have lied about there age and who they are. Not once did I see there profiles get banned. I’m very disappointed and disgusted with how I have been treated with this.
Joe1748 - Idea 💡
Tinder is awesome easy to meet with someone especially if you have Tinder gold.
I think Tinder should have feature what’s called ethnics it would make it easy for a guy or woman to meet like for example. Filipina girl in Australia, Lebanese girl in Australia, USA girl in Australia, Chinese girl in & British in Australia. This is just an example I’m asking it would make so easy if you can add the feature ethnics. Instead of seeing one girl you don’t like and you press nope. Other than that I enjoy this app.
oakskdhdhsj - Great!
27 yr old female. I think the app is excellent because of its instant system and SIMPLICITY! I would love some sort of video feature so it’s not soo shallow. Delete the feeds and keep it simple. I think men are having a difficult time which is sad. I wonder how they can achieve equality here. I am not often sexually harassed, the guys I select are very sweet and respectful. If I am disrespected there is a great reporting system to keep me safe from them. I hope to never be unfairly banned. Thanks tinder !
kejgweg - Device ban is ridiculous and no support staff
I got banned on my phone (was paying for tinder gold) for something completely ridiculous, a while later my mate tried to log on to his tinder account on my phone because his phone died as he was meeting a date, and his account got banned instantly. I find it completely absurd how you go out of your way to permanently ban users. The lack of ban reviews is disgusting and I would rather pay for another dating app. Not to mention the recent doubling of your prices for a service with absolutely no customer support is quite sad.
Hope you fix this mess soon otherwise you will loose a lot of money.
robertamaccra - I was banned for no reason! Tinder didn’t review it at all
I was banned from tinder for the second time, because an ex and his friends keeps on reporting my profile, where I have requested tinder for a review of my profile and it appears that the company doesn’t offer any support for it. Simply answering my request with robotic contact and ignoring my case for the second time.
I am not even upset for it to be tinder, but any person should have the right to appeal for rights as using a platform that sells such a image and
uses “ We take violations of our policies very seriously”.
As a cover up to do not give the right support when requested. I’m deeply frustrated with tinder.
Confusedtothemax12456 - Banned for unknown reasons
I have been using Tinder only for maybe a month now and thought the app was really good until suddenly my account was banned for no explanation at all.
I do not mistreat abuse or pretend to be someone I’m not nor do I behave in any manner that could used for reasons to ban. If I have stepped outside the guidelines by accident by some miracle then a warning would be appreciated so I may rectify it ASAP.
There a hundred of accounts that use the app for different purposes and I have my own, which is no more than any other account on Tinder.
I have sent messages to support with no help or recognition of what has transpired so we are at a lose.
nicekimha - Tinder Problem
Hello, I am a person who loves and enjoys using tinder app, and I am writing to solve the problem quickly. I bought only one booster on January 8th, but I got an error message and I paid for two. Of course, only one booster was registered and I requested a refund, but it was rejected. I sent an email to the Tinder customer center, but there was no reply. Please solve the problem as soon as possible.
Thank you have a good day
_jo_jo_jo_jo - BANNED FOR NO REASON
I had my profile banned with NO warning. I can’t make a new one or talk to someone about getting my profile back. I did not violate any community guidelines, I had no nudity, I didn’t have any of my socials attached, I wasn’t rude or disrespectful. And when I tried to talk to someone about getting my profile back, I was talking to a robot! Who sent me pre-written emails back! Just a copy and paste. How could I have been banned for violating any community guidelines when I wasn’t even given a warning to potentially fix any violations? Get it together Tinder and give me my profile back! We’re in a lock down, girls gotta chat Jesus.
kmck666 - Don’t bother
This is does not work and support will not help. It freezes all the time throws me out won’t load messages will show new messages as read if they even come up at all sometimes delete and slowly reloads matches. Won’t deliver messages if I can actually type one. And takes up to three years for my messages to send. Yes three years. The replies I have actually seen lately have told me they have just received my msg from weeks months & years ago. Don’t waste ur time and do not bother paying for premium my gf had her account deleted for no reason straight after she paid for a month of premium.
iEpix - Could be better. Fix FAST Chat
Rarely get any matches after being on here for months… if they are matches it’s probably some scam account. Had the opportunity to use FAST CHAT feature twice. It’s a good starting point and i think tinder should be based on that and not swiping based on looks. Not many people know about fast chat in Aust. So it does take forever to find someone to chat to if you’re lucky. Please provide instructions for others on how to use it or make it more well known as there are not many users using this awesome feature!!
Wasting time. You won’t get a match unless you PAY!!
Captainhook_0 - Live Chat
I managed to get one connection via live chat. The session lasted just long enough so we could find out each other’s location approx. 3 mins in total then timed out. Now I’m getting a black screen and a message stating that tinder can’t connect me to anyone at this time. Try again later.
As it stands this feature is a total waste of time and should either have the chat lengthened to 30mins min. Or just totally removed.
Tinder might be better of setting up chat rooms like other IM sites used to have 20 years ago.
Yahoo has the best ones back then. (Remove this line if not allowed).
Too permanent - Bugs are NEVER fixed
For all the apparent bug fixes that app updates apparently bring, the app runs like garbage. Do you have the ability / knowledge to fix the broken notifications? Badge icons that show an unread message always persist even when there is nothing new? Is this big left in there to make people open the app more?
Include dark mode already. You’re gouging people for their money by making them PAY PER READ RECEIPT? even AFTER they’ve paid like 50 bucks for one month of gold? What insane universe is this??
Just make a working app at least. It feels like garbage to use.
Azzamagic - Banned for no reason
If I could give this app 0 stars I would literally banned for no reason as for being banned there was literally nothing that warranted the ban I had #BLM in my bio which is think is unjust and unfair as everyone should have a right to have opinion on things happening in the world as we speak I would not waste time or money on tinder as it is a rip off
TikTok kinda bad - Searching could be improved
I wish there was a search option where you could search for specific things like “looking for friends” or “looking for a relationship” because it’s pretty annoying matching with someone only to find out their here to make friends or hookup instead of a relationship and you should be able to choose what nationality you see. Other then these things it’s a great app that i’d highly recommend
Competitve Dad - Banned for no reason
Looking at the reviews, it seems like this is an increasing trend. I used the app for a year, took a two month break, signed up for gold again, was on for a week, got banned, lost all the money. No explanation, no reason, no warning, no breach of the terms or guidelines. At the time, I was only matched with one person and the only message I’d sent was just a few notes about myself. Don’t know if I was reported, don’t know if they just cull accounts. I’m out serious cash and have lost an avenue to finding someone new after losing my wife to cancer. I’m devastated by this...
Steve_Aust - Brilliant App
Love Tinder, the first & best dating App, but beware the scammers, especially the Asian (Chinese) female profiles seeking Men, that appear to be in your city. These profiles are not genuine Asian females, they are most likely African males in Nigeria or Cameroon, who will always ask to chat on WhatsApp where they will slowly over weeks of chatting introduce you to investing with them. It’s all a scam of course & you will lose it all…
Bshifbj - Hacked and ignored
My account had been hacked and presumably my bio and images had been changed, and potentially even my matches were messaged derogatory things. As a result of whatever had been going on in my account, it was banned.
I logged in to find the message about being banned. I wasn’t even given a ‘potential security threat’ warning or something. Just straight up banned.
I have emailed repeatedly and this has been ignored by your customer service employee JULIA.
If I’ve reported my account as hacked then I expect that report to be taken seriously and acknowledged.
Absolute pitiful effort for the members actually doing the right thing, I’ve had my account for over a year and although I may not be an active user, I certainly don’t use the time I do spend on the app TRYING to get banned.
An appeals process should absolutly be in place for situations like mine.
LukeDW - Banned for no reason
Like thousands before me, I’ve been banned without an explanation from Tinder. There was no notification, email or warning. My account was conservative, photos were the usual happy smiles and I was kind and polite to my matches. Honestly, my conversations were appropriate, they were actually boring, the usual “hi”, “how are you?”, “what do you do”.
Looks like thousands and thousands of others have been banned. There is no support from the company and you’ll never get your account back.
I’d say to everyone, delete this app and go to Hinge. A much better experience at Hinge.
Tim odydjfy - No with it
Paid for the gold package and I keep getting notifications even though no one was there. Received many likes from people before I payed and all seemed to vanish after I payed. Global Search is a big issue. You start to speak to someone who is 5 km from you then you find out they are several thousand km away, even in a different country. Since there is a global search option there should be a choice to not pop up in other people’s global search if there original location is outside you distance setting
Stay with the free dating apps
!!&@$/&/&! - Account banned for no reason!
Useless, used tinder for years, did nothing wrong would occasionally meet someone ok to go out with or even oddly enough make some friends off it, however one day went on and was hit with an account ban for absolutely no reason at all! You don’t get matches after a couple hours/days if you’re a male no matter how good or bad looking you are so don’t bother unless you want to part way with hundreds of $, had gold a couple times even then you’d get a few matches & then it would die again, not worth it at all.
Mark Camerone - Accidentally put in the wrong age
I accidentally put in the wrong age (left the year as 2021) and then I got an age restriction ban. Great that tinder has a strict age policy but in an input where human error can occur it’s a bit drastic. They could have had a warning or something.
So I emailed the support team and they said I had to wait until I was 18 which is over 6000 days away lol (I’m 24) and there was nothing they can do. It’s a bit shocking that the tinder team has no control over their own app. You better reconsider your business model. Don’t let computers run your business.
Equadrov - People aren’t on it for what it’s for
I’ve used this app for about a year now and I find it to be the most toxic place for some people. You match up with a decent girl but a few days later it proves to be a joke, either they don’t reply to you or just block you straight up what so ever, without a reason. The amount of people I’ve known who have had this same problem is unbelievable. You either get lied to, lead on then blocked, or not even a single reply.
Overall I suggest if you want to find a decent person, go out and meet people instead.
k8ie00 - awful app
bumble is better, i find it easier to use and you can filter out people with different political views or religions (it’s good if you want to date within your religion), also can filter out smokers and other helpful things.
Tinder however, the app is very buggy, basically every few minutes i have to force close the app because it has frozen.
also it ignores the distance range. my distance is set to 40km but somehow i ended up with people over 100km away.
ughohcas - Banned for no reason?
dee pee - Robbed at gunpoint then banned for no reason
I’ve seen many reviews and online posts talking about bans. Now suddenly I’m banned for no stated reason. I’ve been a paid up user for years. I emailed tinder support trying politely to sort it out or at least find out what I had done and I just got a generic refusal.
This approach to a normal paid user surprises me given the rogues and dodgy profiles that thrive on tinder, for example I was recently set up on tinder and then robbed at gun point. If tinder is so keen to take responsibility for user safety then perhaps it can recompense me for being robbed.
Eazym02 - An Exploited Dating System
Like most dating apps, Tinder is an exploited and impractical application. They will make you pay to upgrade to Tinder Gold in order to match with more ‘high-status’ women in your area which leaves men no choice but to pay an absurd amount of $40+ each month. Not to mention its clear bias and unfairness against men, as I have seen first-hand evidence of how a girl can sign up for free and get more than 100 matches but a guy must pay in order to starting matching.
Overall, men should not download this app and save your money on more realistic purchases.
Justin17767937373 - Platinum PAYING member. BANNED
So I’m a platinum paying member of Tinder I’ve had it for a few months I got banned for absolutely no reason. Customer service is non existent. They just don’t care. My phone number and my device are both banned. I’ve tried to email numerous times and just nothing. They’ve taken from me all my money and not provided a refund. Literally the worst experience ever. I’ve contacted my bank and asked to have the charge reversed. Avoid giving tinder a cent. They will ban you and they will not refund you. I was banned for absolutely no reason.
.....pls fix! - this app would be amazing if they don’t ban people for no reason
This is the worse app for getting banned for no reason I know heaps of people including myself who have been banned and have not done anything breaking the policy’s all your really doing is getting less people to use your app and I don’t think that’s the point. If your going to ban people sure but only if there’s a proper reason with evidence and it should only be for like 3 months or something like banning people’s numbers forever just gives you less users.
horriii - My account was banned for no reason
So my account was banned for no reason. I read though the guidelines just to make sure I didn’t violate any terms. I emailed support to see what the issue was and they told me that because my account was banned that I won’t be able to use it again. I figured it would be ok, I’d just start another account on a different number and unfortunately my phones ip is blocked so no matter what my number is, my email, location.... unless I get a new phone I’m banned for life for no reason. I’m terribly confused.
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!
jclauf - Unable to cancel subscription.
And when I go to submit a request for help with the issue, they direct me to a page that gives me the same useless advice (doesn’t work), with no ability to send a request for help w cancelation. Unable to cancel under Apple account because it’s not listed under subscriptions, yet I got charged. BAD business practice.
Broumand - Girls Just Playing
Most of the girls on here are plugging their IG. A lot of them have no desire whatsoever to make a connection or talk
Skyler3333 - Banned for no reason
I 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🙄
stacy 2129 - 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.
beardofchinys - Ugh
All week I have been having so many issues with using this app. I’ll open it and then the screen is loading and loading forever but it doesn’t ever load!!!
dylan91. - Disgusting and sexist towards men!
This app is criminal and is so biased and sexist towards men. Discrimination should be penalized.
Mariouchio - Ban hammer for no reason
Welp, looks like I’m now one of the many people who got banned off tinder for absolutely no reason. Guilty until proven innocent I guess.
Tomix124 - Très sexiste
Les filles que je connais peuvent voir les gars qu’ils l’ ont like sans avoir le Tinder Premium. Nous les gars, on doit payer si on désire voir les filles qui nous ont like.
Kateri690 - P2W Garbage
This app is nowhere near as good as it used to be. You won’t get anywhere using it unless you pay to see the people who have liked you.
v1311 - Bullied
Been bullied on this app twice.
Stu42069 - I would give zero stars but that’s not an option.
Only was able to get 10 or so matches in a month that were horrendous after spending 23$ on the membership. Literally I am not an ugly guy at all even. This app just steals money.
remisansfamille2 - Boosts are useless
I am a fairly looking guy (around 8/10) I payed for a boost and got 0 matches even if f I was swiping around. I received few likes (7). Total waste of money.
Your friendly neighbour... - Night mode
Tinder my man it’s time to put night mode in the app please.
Just unreal - Tinder: get a new developer
Your great advice wasn’t helpful. After reinstall I can’t change locations now and it continues to crash numerous times daily. I’m having an ongoing frustrating experience. Your app is laced with issues. Look at all the feedback, and what are you doing about it?
antho2002222 - Ban for no reason
I got ban for no reason how can I contact tinder
Kaitlyn🌚🌚 - terrible
i got banned for NO REASON and NO EXPLANATION. They need to create a mode where you can become unbanned or something else. very upset
benbenny0204 - Very bad
Just wasting your time with this app.
armd121 - Account banned
I don’t understand why I got banned from Tinder for no reason and I emailed support team they still didn’t do anything it’s just stupid and ridiculous
Blyat Zayebaly - Lol,the most useless thing ever
To use it you have to spent at least 90$ a month
mickey6343 - Issues
I got banned because they said I was underage but even when I took pics of my driver license and submitted it, they still wouldn’t let me back in the app.
gfzitsiysoydoydoy - Need call option because I’m tired of handing out my number to lames
Need call option because I’m tired of handing out my number to lames
Li janhyson - Who are the ppl who liked you?
You dont know who like you if you didnt pay like 20$ a month. the way too expensive an no other choice btw 1 month and 6 month
friend of tinder victims - Don’t do it
A lot of good people on here but it takes one crazy person on here to absolutely ruin a life. Great app and all but it’s not worth it. Meet people in person, you might not meet as high of a quantity of people but you will meet more quality people by searching for love not on an app.
hcaitlin - Disappointed by this
I 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.
Rational 'Radical' Centrist - Confused user
I 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.
name0129 - Possibly one of the worst dating app
If you swipe right too much, it lowers your score and eventually you’ll just stop showing to anybody
If you want matches, do not swipe right on every women
Most people doesn’t know about this corrupted algorithm and it will make people pay for boost or to get tinder plus/gold/platinum and it will still not help you get matches
If the algorithm consider you needy or desperate, it will do everything in its power to get your money(i.e match with only bots, telling you people are liking you but will never show them to you)
HesherL - Used to be good
Tinder used to work alright for free users but that’s long out the door. I used to match upwards to 10-15 people a day on the free version a year ago and now I seemingly never get matches. They clearly changed their algorithm for the worse to get you to pay for gold.
tjsherpa - TINDER GOLD GETS YOU BANNED
Hi 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.
MrTyrantZero - Unjustly Ban
The 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.
Hroskdnakmahd - another person banned without reason
i’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 :)
Kurt1793 - Not working
I used to use this app a lot but it won’t recognize my number or connect through Facebook. Kinda frustrating cause I’d like to use it
Landan R - Banned without warning or reason
Payed 113 usd just to have them scam me refuse a refund or any reasoning. Basically criminal
coolguy_20_20 - Banned for no reason
Had the app for little over a month and was going pretty good then all of a sudden banned out of nowhere.
Rinslettt - Banni
Moi et l’’une de mes amie avons été bannie sans aucune raison, nous n’avons meme pas eu le temps d’écrire à quelqu’un. Nos photo étaient très banale et nous n’avons même pas eu le temps de faire une description.
Lorsque nous avons écris pour comprendre, nous avons recu un message automatique disant que nous avons enfreint les règlements mais sans spécifier et lorsque nous lisons les règlements, nous n’avons rien fait qui mérite d’être bannis....
Voilà donc mauvaise application injuste
that guy 899 - Terrible customer service
Logged into my account after deleting it for a bit, got banned for no reason. Customer service does not look into it and keeps the ban
boosa0990 - Got band
this 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
Marime1998 - Banni
Je regarde tous les commentaires et je comprend que je suis loin d’être la seule à qui s’est arrivée. J’ai été banni pour aucune raison moi aussi (on ne m’a rien expliqué non plus) et c’est pratiquement IMPOSSIBLE se refaire un compte. Vraiment décue.
Mountaingoatheadsoup - 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.
Lurodi78 - Can’t delete the app
Am I the only one having issue deleting the app? Error message every time.
homiday - Yikes what is going on?
Had issues with the app for two weeks reinstalled a few times and it didn’t work and then I got banned for no reason even though I couldn’t even use the app to do anything worth a ban?
Yoshiissocoolnotatool - Banned for no reason
Got gold then was banned the next day for no reason, no warnings or anything just straight banned for life for nothing
Bland89 - Banned for absolutely no reason
This 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.
Hannahffffff - Banned for no reason
Should be a review process to be unbanned
Adamy9491 - banned124
Paid 200$ for this app
and they banned
mdhvxbbd - Banned for no reason
I was banned for no reason. I want a refund of my subscription
avstar77 - Banned- been on since 2017
Not 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.
jod30 - Banned
I was randomly banned when I follow all guidelines! I don’t say inappropriate stuff or do anything inappropriate like some people do on here and somehow I’m banned?! I’m of age also!
sollygooseqw - Horrible service
I got banned from tinder and when I tried to message them about it they said they don’t deal with it .. horrible I never even did anything wrong and deserved to have it looked into
Eckhooo - Banned??
My account was banned—and absolutely no violations were made I can assure you and there is no way to get it back or even make a new account. Welp. Do better tinder.
CarpeOmnivore20 - Doesnt let me create an account
I tried creating an account and it said i was banned 🤷🏼♀️
