JTD457 - Fantastic app but...
Some bugs need improvement. Sometimes I open the app with a message from more than one person so I'll click on one conversation and the app switches the photos of the two people I received messages from.
Next I was checking out someones profile when I swipe surge started. I was thinking about swiping right for this person but the swipe surge seems to have removed their profile and I never got to give them the swipe right. As someone who has just moved to a new area and is trying to meet people, this is extremely disappointing to see a glitch like that happen.
A new issue that I’ve encountered frequently recently. I’ll receive a message from a match and can only access the conversation through the notification that pops up when I don’t have tinder open. If I open tinder from the home screen icon, it looks like the match is gone. But when I open from the notification that’s still in my phone’s system, I can still send and receive messages from that match. It’s starting to make me wonder how many matches I’ve actually lost and how many were just lost to a glitch in the system. Please fix this.
Gabz237 - It’s all about money and no results
The apps prices have significantly went up for the premium services than what they used to be and a bit more ridiculously priced from other apps. Like now you can’t see who’s swiped on you unless you have the gold service when it used to be on the plus service which plus practically serves no purpose and even now with having the gold service even though I can see who swipes on me it’s as if I don’t get any swipes because the app keeps promoting for you to buy boosts and I used the one free boost and got tons of swipes! But now not using boost and not wanting to pay for boost I get like 10 swipes a day and I’ve only had gold membership for a week now and I do swipe on other people as well and can see who is still in the que for who I have swiped on and it seems as though tinder isn’t showing me in their swipe stacks because I would of guessed those people to of swiped yes or no on me by now. The experience on here in general has been worst than it has in the past. As far as dating apps go Tinder has significantly went down and I would say try else where unless you want to spend a lot of money for no results and am already regretting my decision and it has been a huge waste of money. In the past it wasn’t that big of a deal because it was decently priced but now it costs a lot more for it to actually be considered a huge waste. After my subscription ends I’m for sure never downloading this app again.
Berdeisha - To each is own‼️
I’ve had this app for a while and though I wasn’t looking my husband I did seek to meet new people. Over the course of the time I’ve been active off and on. I understand rules and boundaries it’s not in my character to make disrespectful advances. However in recent times I’ve been banned for reasons I have no idea. I feel that’s unfair because I’ve made genuine friends and was currently messaging someone real nice and we built a friendship however we had not exchanged numbers or social platforms I mean what’s the rush anyway. I have gotten a crap ton of disrespectful persons men and women making very rude statements and commands which was not given off in bio. I have had people match them ask for sex then curse me out to people who are just looking for sec and politely tell me. I don’t hate the app but I do not approve how I was treated. I messaged the contact but then I wondered if it even mattered. The only reason it matter is because no someone who I was talking to possibly thinks I’ve abandoned them or they’ve said something wrong and is stuck with the what if. How is it that there or women not even hiding behind mens accounts, sexiest, dope dealers who clearly state all this in their bio and still have accounts. I’m very upset at how a person of my character was banned for reasons unknown and I know for a fact I’ve been respectful to those even though they weren’t to me. And you can’t file a claim because they give you the run around. Oh well I guess‼️
Tyler Sandy - Very much a sca these days
When tinder first came out it was nearly free to use. Unlimited swipes and I think at least one super like a day. They had a paid option and that really just boosted your profile, gave you more super likes and allowed you to see who likes you, real simple. Over time tinder has gotten much worse. Now their pricing is wack and designed to confuse you. Not to mention that they charge way too much for the crap service they provide. $1.50 for a single super like... You still get ads even for the cheapest price of tinder plus $8 for one month. I even noticed that as soon as I paid for that single month all the people became way more subjectively atractive and a lot of profiles were suspiciously fake or not from your area yet I set my location and distance preference. Yes, I'm calling out tinder for using fake profiles to bring people in. I had been using free tinder for a week prior and I never saw those people before. I'm also very positive that the algorithm is tuned to pick subjectively atractive people and display them more prominently. Today after my one month of tinder plus ended, I have met no one and then I started to see all the regulars again, profiles I already swiped left on and what seemed to be people in my area. Tinder is a scam plain and simple. There 6 way to boost your profile article on the app store page is a joke. Anyone with a brain could recognize those trends except bright in the new black section made no sense.
Mr. McGuillacutty - They Can Shut You Down With No Explanation
Within 48 hrs of having downloaded the app (most of that time I was traveling so I wasn’t even very active) they put my account under review and asked for some verification photos which I provided. Then I waited a couple days to let things get sorted out before writing the customer service people, I received a response saying that they were escalating the issue for further review, ok no problem do your thing, then I received a follow up email saying my account was all good and I should be able to log in. But then when I went to open the app it said I had been banned. This is insane because I’m a super nice respectfully person, only had pleasant and positive interactions with the few people I was chatting with, never said anything that could be deemed offensive or violate their community guidelines or terms of service at all, all of the photos of me were fairly recent… I was shocked. After reaching out again they refused to offer any explanation and said the results were final and permanent. I feel like I was treated very unfairly, and should have at least been given a reason for what was the issue other than “we take our terms and conditions and/or community guidelines very seriously.” Of course, and so would I. Im just highly disappointed and feel betrayed by this app. Out of all the ratchet stuff going on constantly, I get banned and I was nothing other than kind and respectful to everyone I chatted with.
Lionzire - Many bugs/glitches & greed.
There are so many bugs with this mobile app. I have been talking to people who I initially thought were just unmatching me at very random points in conversation, but then I log into the app on web browser, and BOOM. There’s all the matches that I thought unmatched me. Sitting there as if I ghosted them for weeks/months. As a male on dating apps, good luck getting a lady to respond after a situation like this. The mobile app is whack. Web app is fine, for the most part. Also sometimes these matches would pop back up on mobile, but the conversation history would be cleared, or the matches name would be blank, and you couldn’t remove the match from your feed because using the unmatch button did nothing 😂 the functionality of the app is very iffy due to the aforementioned. As someone who has been using this app on and off for years as well, I can’t help but be disappointed in the direction the app is moving. Super likes used to be available for free to use once a week, and to be quite honest, they really did give guys a better chance at getting matches & get the ball rolling on a date. Those are all gone and a pay only feature now. If you don’t mind paying for the chance of ‘love’ then hey this is the leading app, enjoy. But they do an awful job at bug fixing, the app drains battery quite a bit, and slows down my phone if used for a while at once.
Hardshot4488 - Tinder went downhill
I don’t normally leave reviews but it’s really surprising to me how downhill Tinder has gone. Idk if there are just too many users now and people get put way down in the deck unless they buy the overpriced platinum membership or what, but it’s a night and day difference. Anecdotally, I used to get a dozen or more likes a day and at least 3 matches, and if I boosted I would get several dozens of likes by the end of the 30 minutes. Now I’ll be lucky to get a LIKE, let alone a match. I very rarely get matched with someone I liked first, which is completely different than it was a couple years ago. Idk if it’s because I came back to the app after a few years of inactivity (I was in a relationship), and Tinder sank the rating of my profile so low that I never get surfaced to other people. I’m not going to spend upwards of 50 bucks a month or whatever it is on a platinum membership to get the same experience I did a year and a half ago. App ratings have sunken since, prices of memberships have increased, and it just seems like the app is starting to die and they’ll die by squeezing out as much money out of you as they can. Fwiw even after I got a gold membership and used a boost, I still log in every day and see no likes. So I don’t even think paying money is an option for you to get in Tinder’s good graces unless you get the platinum membership. Just not worth it. Anyway, Hinge seems like a better option.
#BrutuallyHonest - Don’t waste your time or money!
So, I have had Tinder off and on for the past few years. But recently after deleting my account to start fresh and take a break. About 2 weeks ago I redownloaded the app to give it another shot. However, I was randomly banned without any explanation as to why. I believe I was banned because so many guys I had matched with made sexual advances towards me and I denied them. So they most likely reported my account. And although I have only been back on the app for 2 weeks, despite my profile saying I’m looking for a relationship so many guys asked for sexual favors or wanted to hookup. Making vulgar and crass remarks unprompted often right off the bat. Which I should not be reported for. Then I emailed tinder to request my account be unbanned and I was given some dry, robot response. With no consideration of what I had experienced using the app. So ladies be aware that this can happen to you too. Even if it is not at all your fault! It would be nice to know what terms and community guidelines I supposedly “violated”. Not to mention, I reported the sexual commentary I received constantly. There is a huge issue with men who are looking to cheat on their significant others on this app. I’m sure I am not alone in this. But how am I more at fault then people who are committing adultery? I not anyone else should not be punished for declining their advances and wanting to actually DATE someone we connect with! Crazy concept.
Gậhch - 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...
Dinix Masourox - Needs A LOT of Work
I’ve been experiencing sooooo many bugs. The fact that tinder makes it almost impossible to contact them makes it extremely apparent that they don’t want feedback, they just want your money. For starters, my matches randomly disappear for days mid-conversation, but then randomly reappear at the front of my new matches. The entire conversation gone, and now they think I just ignored them for days. Second, I am getting numerous notifications of messages from some of my matches when they haven’t sent anything at all. For example, a new match I got today has sent 2 messages to me. Tinder is now alerting me with a new message notification from her every 2-3 minutes. Brand new notification every single time. I tried to go report this bug, but when you try to do this, you’re led to a screen where you get to search through every single one of Tinder’s policies with absolutely NO CONTACT information. I’m pretty fed up with Tinder. Hinge is so much better in every single way. Not NEARLY as many BOTS, more detailed profiles, search parameters, etc. If anyone considering using tinder has read this far, I implore you to use a different app. If you insist on using this one, please don’t spend a dime on it, and don’t use it often enough to give them any ad revenue. If anyone from Tinder is reading this, well… you have a lot of work to do if you don’t want to become a thing of the past. Good luck.
Navyjax2 - Too many fakes, scammers, “catfish”
Nothing is done to ensure that the people on the site are actually genuinely looking for a match. Captchas aren’t installed, having a “verified” profile is optional, most members don’t fill anything in the bio because it’s not even required. Often you’ll see people that are thousands of miles away by mileage, or people that are nearby, but their “live in” city is thousands of miles away because they’re just visiting your area. Needs to be a setting to only show those people that are physically nearby and also live nearby, or where you can select it if you want to see visitors. There’s no way to tell political leanings unless they put certain tags in their profile or put it in their bio. There’s no way to know important things like if they have pets or drink/smoke unless they happened to answer those questions-they’re optional. There’s no way to make it so you only see people that don’t have pets or don’t smoke or restrict out certain tags a person might add as their interest, for example “Activist”. To be a better app, these things need the focus, not the cutesy “Vibes” questions that don’t have much meaning to whether they’re going to be a good partner or not. And having to “Boost” in order to be seen by people you like is lame - it ought to just automatically put them front and center for them and tell you if they rejected you or not. But anything for a buck, eh, Tinder?
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.
WordiestTomb - Tinder Gold Is No Longer Worth Your Money
I used to unironically like Tinder, even at its base form I’ve gotten matches that ended up leading to great relationships. Unfortunately, as time has passed the company has made taken away features and slowly asked for more money to unlock them; specifically with super likes. I’ve travelled alot and used tinder gold each time I travelled to find friends in new countries. Having five super likes a day helped me stand out from the crowd and led to fairly consistent matches. Even on a base account having access to the occasional super like was a huge help. Nowadays on a base tinder account you don’t have any super likes which is genuinely a huge detriment, and on tinder gold you get five a week. A massive decrease of 35 a week to 5. But the price remained the same??? A super like was a fantastic way to differentiate yourself in an environment where first impressions are everything. And for some guys and gals who are great people but not super models it can help hedge your bets to match with people you have a genuine interest with. I think taking that tool to consistently show interest in people you genuinely like was a bad decision for the company. I use to be a fairly consistent subscriber for Tinder Gold and I used to speak highly of it too, but with these new changes I will never again give this company my money.
BigMike3621 - Notifications are belittling
Had a notification today that stated essentially “the only way to get out there in the dating world is to get back online - who would’ve known 😱” not only is it unprofessional to assume that I’m currently wanting to get on tinder to use for dating currently, but it’s also ridiculous to think that Tinder is the only way to meet a significant other. Not only the snarky and condescending wording by whoever decided to write this notification, but to not respect my boundaries of when I chose if I’d like to use tinder for my dating choices or not is crazy to me and others. If I don’t want to use Tinder for the meantime, I don’t need your team to try to convey a disrespectful message/notification to me. Sarcasm towards your clients is the absolute dumbest way to get them to use your app and spend money as well. Not only that, you want people to pay 24 dollars a month for a premium package for a site that has a history of hookups, not long term relationship success. You really try to screw your clients in more than one way. Deleting this app for good tonight, and if you have any respect for yourself, I suggest others do the same as well. Obviously this company cares more about how much money they can get out of you, not how meaningful the relationships and success rate of long term relationships that are built from them. If I could rate this company and app worse than a 1 star, I would.
Gale22 - Highly toxic and depressing
Wow Tinder has gotten to low as to pay for 5 star reviews. I’m seeing fake reviews with 5 stars saying “good”. So glad I stopped using this retched app. Needs to be banned from the apple store.
Too many people using this out of boredom and too many douche bags. Please don’t waste your time on this app. No one uses this seriously. It’s just a matching game for most. Also, if you’re a person of color especially a black person just know it takes just a few swipes from someone racist for you to be lowered in your desirability meaning. If you live in an area where people are swiping left for your skin color your profile is less likely to show up for someone on the same level of attractiveness as you. This isn’t just tinder but all dating apps across the board. I’m an above average attractive black woman and in person I have no problem attracting guys pre covid but on here I rarely get any guys I would ever find attractive. Their algorithm controls who you get to see and how attractive you are, theirs so many things wrong with that system and I’m honestly disgusted by all these dating apps. They don’t care if you find love they just care about keeping you on as long as possible. Oh and the CEO once bragged that they had an above average desirability according to their algorithms. Everyone should do research on how dating algorithms work, stop wasting your money.
IBLopez33 - Only giving it 2 stars because I met a nice friend.
I’ll keep it short and simple. Here you have an app that’s made to connect people and bring them together. In order for you to see who liked you, you need to pay. In order to get more attention via a boost, you need to pay. You want better “top picks”, you need to pay. If your like me, and already literally hated the idea of using dating apps, then don’t waste your time here unless you have money laying around that you don’t mind throwing at this app all the time.
Not only Tinder, but most “dating” apps are just broken. I get the idea of bringing people together along with preferences to narrow it down, however Tinder and others try to fit all groups into one. What I mean by that is - this is a dating app right? Where you go to meet people to, ya know, date? I’d say these apps are broken down into three categories of use - relationships, hooking up, and validation. I’d say most people here are on for validation. They don’t want love, they want the love they get from 20 people swiping on them inflating their ego. The next small group is looking for just sex, and the next is actual dating. There really should be an app out there for people to sign up for just for all that attention people need and want. Dating apps? Ya ok, more like feed someone else’s already inflated ego app.
FazzieATX - Oh boy
Just recently got out of a relationship and decided to dive back into the dating app world, and all I have to say is wow. Tinder has really slipped. What used to be a brilliantly simple and effective dating app has turned into a frustrating, convoluted, pay-walled mess. For Tinder to be even remotely useful, you have to pay for it. And once you do, you’re allowed features that are literally free on other apps. Wanna see who likes you? You’re going to have to pay more a month than you do on a Netflix subscription for that. Btw, Hinge does that for free. Wanna leave a comment on someone’s picture? Surely you can do that with the Gold membership, right? Nope. Gotta shell out even more money for ~platinum~. Guess who also does it for free? You got it. Hinge (and I think OKC too). And even after emptying your wallet on one of their higher subscription tiers, you still only get one boost a week, and you’re still hounded with pop ups every 10 minutes to try out their creepiest feature - the super like. All of this on top of the inherent dating app negatives (ghosting, catfishing, creeps, excessive filters, etc) and you’re in for a miserable ride. Save yourself the stress and money and try literally any app other than Tinder. Or just go to a bar. You’ll spend about the same amount of money but at the very least you’ll get a good buzz.
WinglessFish - Banned for no reason???
I’ve had to make 4 different accounts during the time I’ve tried to use this app bc I keep getting banned for reasons I cannot figure out and that we’re never explained. None of my photos were any more revealing than cleavage peeking out of my shirt, and the most explicit thing I mentioned was that I was looking for hookups on a HOOKUP APP. When you get banned you don’t have any way to appeal, any info as to why so you can avoid it should you make a new account, and you can no longer attach your phone number, email, or Apple account should you make a new profile later, meaning unless you change your Apple ID you can’t get a subscription for your new profile. And if you were talking to someone on the site, unless you have already given them your alt contact info they will have no idea where you went or how to contact you. The issues have been going on for literal YEARS without anyone trying to fix or address them and the only reason I’ve even TRIED to remake my account is bc they have a serious monopoly on the hookup app market; there’s plenty of other apps without these issues but almost no one uses them. With the sheer number of users on their app and the boatloads of money they make off the almost mandatory subscriptions, you would think they could put in a little more effort to fix these long-standing issues.
Mindyrenee7 - Banned for no reason
Oooo I’m livid I’ve used tinder forever. I deleted my old account for awhile as I had ended up in a relationship but after that not working out I reinstalled tinder and made myself a new account. I did not violate any terms. I didn’t even have a bio and just selfies as pictures, nor did I message any inappropriate things. Honestly I barely messaged anyone I just sent people my Snapchat so the reasoning behind the ban is what I’m confused about. Especially considering I’d had my new account open for like a month before it was banned and hadn’t changed anything on my profile, and also when I went to open the app and found out I was banned I hadn’t been on it in like a week. I was so mad considering once you’re banned that’s it. You cannot use tinder again unless you get a new phone number and Apple ID. I tried getting in contact with some type of support but couldn’t find much help. I emailed about an appeal for my ban but all I got back was a robotic email stating I was banned and can’t be unbanned but still have no reasoning. It’s really pathetic honestly. Then I come on here and realize a bunch of people are getting banned for no reason left and right. Y’all need to get it together and fix this. This is going to drop yalls ratings and user amount tremendously especially considering y’all are getting rid of users yourself by banning them.
Rager2112 - One sided…
So obviously the app itself is fine. Easy to use. The one thing that bothers me is the “interests or passions”. They are all these left wing liberal passions but none for anyone else. For example: pro-choice, LGBTQ rights, feminism, vaccination stickers on profiles etc… so my question is where is the passion for pro-life? Or religion/God? The Bible? There are plenty of passions on the right that are just completely ignored. The more time I spend on this app the more I realize how it’s just another app from liberal California that’s “woke”
I put that I am unvaccinated, pro-life, love Jesus and looking for that in a partner on my profile on day 1 and I got an email from Tinder saying “they don’t approve of hateful messages to other users and if I do it again I will be banned” but I hadn’t even sent a message yet?? I’ve seen profiles say hail Satan, F trump, F republicans, let’s riot and burn buildings down on first date, looking for 3 ways, if you’re not vaccinated go kill yourself etc… but none of these profiles get taken down.
My message to other Jesus loving single people - either don’t download Tinder or just be straight up with your beliefs in your bio. Because 95 percent of tinder users have 0 values whatsoever and it’s a good way to weed them all out. Don’t change who you are or your beliefs for anyone. Don’t let pressure from media, social media, dating apps, friends make you give in to the evil.
Justin Mumma - men: just say no. not even once.
I know it’s tempting and you want to use tinder, but wait a minute man it’s not worth it. Even for pretty attractive guys, it will extremely difficult to find matches and it will destroy your self esteem. Tinder algorithms make this problem even worse. Even if you think you don’t care, you’ll end up feeling terrible about yourself even if you’re a good guy. Academic research on the apps show that top ~20% most attractive guys get almost all of the like and matches, like the vast vast majority, and that women users rank ~80% of men as below average. So essentially if you are 80th percentile or above, top 20+% of all men your age in attractiveness, hot and built, you will do okay. For the other 80% of us average and above average guys, just don’t join, don’t let it ruin your self esteem, don’t be a simp.
and that’s assuming you don’t get scammed. Lots and lots of women on these apps pretending they want to date or meet up with you and then they convince you to send them “half the money for the hotel” over Venmo or “Uber money to come over” or whatever and then they block you and you never hear from them again. Come on guys, don’t be simps. Don’t send women money, ESPECIALLY if you’ve never met her in person. If she wants money and you haven’t met her in person yet, it a scam always always always. Maybe a real person, doesn’t matter, still a scam
Td8699 - Fun while it lasted
Well it was fun while it lasted but it looks like tinder is finally pay to win now. Started out small with taking away the amount of likes you had every 12 hours. Than they took away the super like feature, unless you pay for it, and then they started to shadow banned accounts that were not signed up for tinder gold. For the last few months the work around to all this was to make a new account every couple of weeks. New accounts get shown as normal but then after 2-3 weeks you were shadow banned. No big deal just delete your account and make a new one but it looks like the money hungry leeches at tinder caught on. You can’t delete your account anymore and instead of being shown for 2-3 weeks you are now only shown for 24 hours. You are still able to swipe on people however it doesn’t matter. No matter if you swipe right or left on someone you will still be shown their account each time you log back on. I came across the same accounts 9 times in a row. You now have unlimited likes but again this is worthless as your likes don’t mean anything because the people you like won’t see it. I really liked tinder. Was my go to dating app and I had nothing but positives to say about it for the past few years. But now I guess it is officially dead unless your fork over some cash.
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.
Pedrotheoboe - My “Tinderella” Story
I downloaded Tinder because a few friends told me to. I was nervous because I figured it wasn’t something for me. I’ve always been the relationship type of person so I figured an app known for other things was definitely not where I’d find love. Unlike some of these bad reviews I didn’t buy Tinder gold or anything like that, I actually thought the regular app was quite fun. I honestly got addicted to it and would spend a lot of time swiping. I swiped right on this adorable, tall, guitar playing guy and we immediately matched (yay). He texted me first and we hit it off straight away. Turns out him and I went to the same college and everything. We had SOOO much in common. After getting my phone number and facetiming for a couple days, he picked me up and we went on our first date, which would be one of many many wonderful dates. Little did I know downloading Tinder would lead to meeting the love of my life. Just thought I should share my “Tinderella” story on here to let everybody know that while Tinder is super fun, it can also lead to something more than just somebody to text or talk to. :)
SmogMon - Too buggy for all the money they take in
I’m not going to list the myriad reasons why tinder is a sub par service, just the app itself.
The app is built to constantly market boost and super like purchases to customers and it’s incredibly annoying. Almost every other time you tap through someones profile you get a large pop up prompt asking you to super like them, which always blocks out location information. Same with liking popular users. In my opinion, a premium paying user shouldn’t be constantly inundated with pop ups trying to siphon more money out of them.
There’s also issues with matching/chat functionality. Likes and messages are regularly dropped, which leads to situations where you think somebody is ignoring you but they just never even got your message. I’ve had a couple chats just get deleted wholesale as well.
For the amount of money this app takes in, it should be much more polished and reliable.
That being said I’ve gotten a couple decent hookups over the past month so I can’t completely hate it. Just be ready to deal with some frustrating bugs if you’re going to jump in
SpaceyMutt - Fix this please
I love the app. I really do. I used to be scared of people, too scared to even see food delivery drivers. I can't handle going to bars to meet people and I don't go out much. I used tinder to make friends and partners, and be able to meet them. I used the app for multiple years and even spent a lot of money on it. But the reason my rating is low is because the feeling i have right now. Recently, i'd been getting pop ups that made me redo the same test over and over to prove i'm human. And then when I went to get on today and respond to someone I was going to meet, it said I was banned. I get there are a lot of bot accounts and whatnot. But I've been loyally using tinder for years and wanted to keep doing so. There should be an appeal of some sort. Adapting a "you're banned no matter what" stance is unfair to your consumers. If it has happened to me, I can only imagine who else has dealt with. I, nor anyone else, went through the loops and holes to pay or get verified just to be banned out of nowhere. Imagine you actually get a strong connection with someone and are about to meet them. Then BAM, you're banned and will probably never speak to that person again.
All the other features I love, and really hope Tinder fixes this issue so that I can have my account back.
HeuUs - Cooperate strikes again
I’ve seen the ratings go down for years, and here’s why: Tinder reasonably realized they made more money from people who bought tinder premium or gold in 2015. In the earlier days, tinder gold bought you the most basic upgrades, like unlimited swipes. Nothing special. Today however, they’ve gotten so greedy that they made two separate algorithms: if you’ve payed for tinder gold, you’re placed in an algorithm that will match you frequently with people who swiped right on your profile. If you didn’t pay, then you are enrolled in an algorithm that purposely avoids people who’ve swiped right on your profile. Furthermore, I’ve both the free version of tinder, and I’ve used tinder gold, and I’ve found that disgustingly, you find more minorities and people people with a larger body size tend to appear significantly more frequently on the free tinder algorithm. This overt prejudice blatantly contrasts with how accepting of diversity they seem on their advertisements. Don’t be fooled, Match Group clearly doesn’t care about you and your love life, rather on the size of of your pocket and the color/ shape you possess.
Promicin92 - Tinder Ban
I’ve been using tinder for years. I’ve never had any issues with it. Two days ago my account randomly disappeared from the app. My account disappeared and neither my Facebook (which was connected to it), phone number, or email were recognized by tinder. I contact costumer support and they give me a few options. That’s when I remember I’m also connected to the app through my laptop. I check and my account still exists. Somehow that brings back my account on the mobile app. Problem solved right? Last night I match with a person, reach out to them. They reply with a rude response so I report them and they’re unmatched. Today I go on to the app to discover I’ve somehow been banned. No reason given. The only connection I could think was the random glitch two days before or me reporting someone for rude behavior. Strangely enough my account still exists on my computer so I’m assuming this is another glitch. I have Tinder Platinum for another week so this makes the problem more annoying. Based on the recent reviews other people our getting banned. I hope this gets resolved or the app makes a statement. My advice if you’re planning on using Tinder avoid paying for a description on the chance you’re banned out of nowhere. At least until the app recognizes there are issues and attempts to fix them.
AlexRuck99 - Why did I get banned?
Now typically I wouldn’t get upset over something so silly but the fact that I’ve never been banned from anything and that I actually didn’t do anything wrong really bothers me. I read through all your terms and conditions and thought maybe I made an honest mistake and somehow violated them but no. I did not violate your terms and conditions and I have no idea why you banned me. I’m gonna take it as a sign that I just shouldn’t be on Tinder but I mean still. Plus this app has no way to like fight the ban or even be reconsidered unless you are simply under review which is kinda dumb. I’m a real 21 yr old female, who is from American and currently lives in Italy for my job and I was literally on Tinder for a day but my phone service was not operating correctly so I tried deleting my account but it wouldn’t let me so I paused it. Then when my phone started to operate correctly again I tried to log back in to unpause my account and it said I was banned. None of my photos are copyright and there’s no way I could’ve gotten reported or anything when my phone was so messed up I couldn’t get any matches like it just kept putting the same people up over and over. Maybe you should ban the app instead of me. Whether it be my phone service or just your app bugging out, who knows but it definitely is not my fault.
Shfiek - Disappearing matches and app lies
Ive noticed that sometimes when i get a match the entire profile ive matched with just goes away out of nowhere. At first, i thought it was because they chose to unmatch since thats happened before but then a few days later they will reappear but the conversations ive had with them will be gone. I once got 7 matches in one day and had fairly good talks with all of them but then they all disappear. Then a few days later they're all back with no notifications or anything they're just back so now it looks like im ignoring them. The app also lies to you about how many people are in your area to keep you on longer because if it really helped people to delete the app and actually find someone they'd lose money. I know this because after swipping for a few minutes the app will tell me to increase my range because no one is left. But coincidentally all of my top 10 picks for weeks will all be within 10 miles of me. And when i increase my distance range there will still be people in my area even though the app just told me no one is left. Terrible app that lies to you to make money and buggy matches. If you end up actually having a good talk with someone just get their snap and delete this app
Robert MacTenj - Shady practices and easily exploited moderation
My complaints with tinder primarily fall into two categories: auto-moderation and the gender ratio.
Moderation is automated, with profiles being banned automatically after receiving *any* three reports, regardless of their validity or content. This is a common way to cut costs that is known to be easily exploitable by users. Men and women maliciously false report each other for rejection or not replying fast enough, leading to automated bans that cannot be contested. You can find videos of so-called “pickup artists” getting women banned after exchanging phone numbers so there will be less competition for her attention. I personally was banned after not replying to women for two weeks; several of them falsely reported me out of revenge and tinder support refuses to review the situation.
Tinder’s male-to-female ratio is notoriously poor, in some regions being as bad as 9-to-1 according to one study. This leads to unhappiness for everyone, as women are spammed and men are ignored. To give the impression of there being more women, tinder ignores your search preferences and shows you women far outside of your age and geographic ranges. I do not want to date 18 year olds, they cannot hold a conversation. If you want to see women no less than X years old, you must set your minimum age to X+3 in my experience. This is clearly not a bug.
Harmoino - Banned for no reason/without explanation
I have noticed that tinder doesn’t reply to these. Many of my friend use this app and have noticed they will randomly get banned after paying, as it happened to me as well. I personally think they either need to set up a appeal process or renew everything on the app process. I know tinder isn’t about to even reply to this, but I just want it to be known that all of my friends are coming over to one Star this app until they set something up to make this process better for everyone. It is honestly ridiculous you can let people looking for thirds who play themselves as females to harass people about it or you get the people who will just report you for not replying why is that even an option on the reporting. Sometimes people can’t reply because the app is so freaking glitchy that messages sometimes don’t appear. Y’all advertise tinder as a great app but in reality if people are always complaining from what I’ve noticed about the glitching or having to get whole new numbers and phones to make a new account. It’s honestly sad seeing how bad this app can get like how do you not have a support line or even email that gives people an actual reasoning to why they were banned ect. Have fun hinge is way better y’all go there they are also cheaper
TD0625 - Worst Dating App with no way to get unbanned
I had this app for over a few years. Then one day someone got my profile information and started uploading explicit pictures on my profile. Instead of emailing me, texting me, or trying to contact me about the situation they banned my account. I went to Tinders website to try and plead my case and repeal their decision. I could not find any such place on their website except a customer service email. I emailed them to try and and explain my situation, but was left with “at this time there is no repeal process put in place to allow someone the opportunity to be unbanned”. I don’t understand how in a world where people are constantly getting hacked that they have no plan or repeal process for situations like this. I tried making a new account with a new email and tried making new social media’s. Unfortunately they have linked my banned account to my phone and everything on my phone. It’s fine, I’ll spend my time, energy, and money on different apps like bumble and hinge. This inferior app has so many other problems with it, I’m sure I won’t miss it. Will never recommend this to anyone looking to use dating apps. I will always tell people from now on not to use this one because of the constant sexually charged males harassing women over this app.
Sixcollars - On the Decline - New Features Make it Buggy and Unuseable
UPDATE: App is completely useless and unusable now. Every time I send a message, it doesn't show up in the chat. Any time I type a message, the keyboard glitches and lags. App constantly crashes and freezes. Pictures and videos get removed for no reason, without any explanation why. Matches will randomly disappear and reappear again. This is with the most CURRENT and UP TO DATE version. Deleting this app now.
Tinder used to be a simple app - fast loading, easy to use, worth paying the cheap price for premium. It was perfect 5 years ago. Now the app has added so many over the top, ridiculous, useless features that everyone hates. Other users on the app immediately give you their phone number or social media handle right away because the app is so bad. Messages don't refresh unless you close and reopen the app several times, trying to type has significant lag and delay, the app randomly freezes and crashes constantly. If you listen to music while using it, it will cause your music to glitch too. My phone has been significantly slower since downloading the app, its like simulating what an iPhone virus would be like. Overall an irritating, buggy, glitchy, slow app that gets worse every update.
Jay'sCraft - Terrible App
To start things off Tinder is filled with bots, every second match I get in tinder is some “girl” trying to give you a massage and send you to a website. They don’t do any background checks on the people who join to make sure they are human. Secondly they spam it with advertisements and every 7th person you swipe on is an ad. Thirdly the amount of times it tells you, “you need to upgrade to get women to match with you” is incredibly annoying. Fourth, if you swipe right on everyone on the app Tinder actually throttles how many people you can match with. The first day I ran a test and swiped on every girl, I managed to go through about 40 women before it said I’m out of swipes. Next day I do it and get about 20. Now when I load the app I swipe on about 4 women before I have to upgrade my account because Ive ran out of swipes. It’s very unfair and flawed. Lastly they have these stupid “swipe surges” and other random events that “guarantee you’ll
match with someone.” Ive gone to about 4 of these events (and by go I mean had the app open) and haven’t matched with anyone, and yes I know it’s all about appearances, and I wouldn’t say I’m ugly nor attractive but still. This app is a huge scam, waste of time, try something like Bumble or Facebook Dating. 1000% better than this trash app.
Da Saber - Banned for no reason
Update: I’m afraid I also have been banned for no reason. I used to read these reviews and roll my eyes like people can’t be banned for no reason — must have done something. Nope. I’ve been permanently banned for absolutely nothing. I’m never even remotely mean or inappropriate. It must be an automated system when someone claims anything. Which is not a business I want to support. Maybe an ex saw me or something. After 6 years and many subscriptions, tinder has lost me permanently. Sad to say but it’s ironically not my choice ———————— Used to be decent. Now they’re giving out free passport apparently? But you can’t control if you swipe on people genuinely local, or those using passport “pretending” to be local actually 8k miles away. So now, 19/20 swipes are from random profiles around the world. Different languages, countries, with high language barrier and zero intention to come to your area. It has completely ruined the entire experience and made it impossible to use tinder for what it was created to do — get to know people around you to find a partner / friends. Not make virtual pen pals who are messing around. Add in the horrific allegations about their CEO, their horrible customer service, and pathetic squeeze for money, this is how a five star app became useless, nearly overnight.
Jmac.Attack - Absolutely Terrible!!
Tinder has so many glitches it is not even funny. I had so many issues with the site. At some point in time, Tinder decided to just stop my account from working. I was texting a couple matches who verified all our messages disappeared and they weren’t receiving any of my messages. I tried messaging Tinder and no response.
I decided to delete the old account and create a new account losing all my contacts from before. After creating a new account, someone flagged my new account, and got put on a hold for a bit with no reason why or anything. It apparently got squared away after a day again with no explanation. Now out of the blue, Tinder once again just banned me permanently for no reason while I was talking to a few people that could have been real connections!
Now when I try to log on or create an account it says I am permanently banned! I am still trying to wrap my head around it, but I wouldn’t use Tinder ever again after this experience! The sad thing is that there were some really great connections I had made and was in the process and either meeting or about to text before all of this went down and no way now for me to connect with them! Terrible service who truly don’t care about connections! I will stick to Hinge!
LunaRose244 - Please Help All Of Us !!!!! Banning everyone is not working
I love tinder I’ve used it on and off for years and never had a problem. One day one of my friends were banned we were both confused as they did nothing wrong and the next day I was banned as well doing nothing at all that would break rules and regulations of tinder. Even more confused we decided to see if others were getting banned for no reason I’m seeing so many complaints on social media from people getting banned for no reason. I have been trying to be patient and wait for news of y’all allowing and people to file some sort of annulment or complaint but have seen none. I’ve emailed you twice with nothing but a copy paste explanation saying I violated the terms of service and community guidelines. I’ve read over all of them several times and have not violated any. This is extremely frustrating and I’m starting to think I’m being hacked or the whole app is being unfair to users or people are being banned for petty reasons by others such as getting flagging for example not answering. innocent people are being banned. I want my account reactivated I’ve given you my time, my money, and my hope for something more using tinder and I’m extremely disappointed. Please help me.
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
SeekAndDes7roy2 - I got banned for no reason
I don’t understand the terms and policy of this app what so ever. I was banned for no reason. All of my photos are appropriate and my bio did not have anything close to being worthy of being banned.
It seems like tinder has a very flawed system in which it bans whoever it likes without giving any warning or notifications on why you were banned. This is an abuse of power right here from an app that has too much power. You can’t even appeal the reason why you were banned. It just doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve had my profile since 2015. I have deleted it every now and then to take a break from it. But redownloading it recently and have been using it for the past week, everything was fine. Until today, this afternoon I went onto the app to find out I was banned.
If this is how Tinder works and does things, by asking for personal information, wanting a bio and having you do so much to make a profile, just seems like a huge breach of privacy and an abuse of power.
I recommend anyone that wants to use this app, to not even download it. Because the amount of times I’ve seen my friends use this app, just to get banned for no reason, kind of blows my mind. Again, I highly suggest no one downloads this app at all.
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.
BlazeP - Problems for the Radar
I think its problematic that I see people lower than my selected age range. Period. Or even higher, though both have gotten better (noticeably!) Also, I understand corporate business/marketing, but it would be nice to see more people in my area vs people thousands of miles away. It's frustrating knowing there are so many local options but I'm seeing people from Colombia and Australia as someone who lives in the Midwest. I KNOW the company wants to get people to pay for the premium/passport, but I'm here to actually find connections with people in my area; people I have colloquial things in common with, vs people across the world. Ultimately, the success of the users of this app in finding people to interact with is going to the best for the brand, long-term. I know many people are starting to delete their Tinder app because it's not as locally effective, like Hinge or Grindr. Also, the option to accept 'passport' accounts would be nice, that way we actually know what is going to appear on our profile, as far as distance relative to our location. (Not talking about people visiting an area, but people whose profiles say they're literally thousands of miles away. It's pretty pointless.)
Shhutfg - Scam to get money then Bann you
Do not get and definitely do not put money into tinder. Users are describing having issues the erase conversations for one person and the other still sees them there’s nothing but bots basically all the issues you can have in dating apps exist in tinder and they will never fix them. I was banned for unforeseen reasons and no given no means of correcting this issue and was even about to pay premium for this app before I got banned. Used to tinder for three years and I have no clue why my account was banned so I am probably going to do the same thing again somewhere else. You can’t make another profile because it all connects through Facebook. I now realize that I also had the bug where you don’t see your matches in your match list they keep disappearing and coming back. My conversations were also disappearing and coming back it would be days and weeks in between. I will never use dating apps again I’m just going to use Facebook dating if anything and that’s it this app has ruined all dating apps for me that’s how bad this app is. This app is trash. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
1stTymeWritingA-reviw - Getting banned for life with no detailed explanation or refund
Eventually you will get banned for life with the only explanation is that you violated their terms of service. No warning and no indication of what you supposedly did. If you are a paying Member, and you get banned they keep your money with no refund. With people easily offended, and the ease to report another Member on the app, just stating in your profile that you’re “super straight” will eventually trigger some people as offensive and will report you as offensive behavior and you will get banned for life. Of course you have to be a match to report someone, but people can match just for the purpose of reporting you because they are offended by information in your profile; political views, race, age, sexuality, and once matched, report you as offensive. Also they are shady on their Membership costs and overcharge more than what they quote. Before I became a paying Member, I would get pop ups of their Membership packages (months/cost). First time I bought a 6mo gold package and was charged a little more than the cost quoted in the pop up. Next Membership I upgraded to 6mo platinum and was charged over $160 (which was substantially more than the amount quoted in the pop up) and I was banned a week later.
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...
Tyler-986 - Banned for no reason
I’ve used tinder frequently throughout the years. I have always been appropriate with how I approach my matches. Recently, I had re-signed up for tinder after deleting the app from a few months ago. When I downloaded the app I bought tinders gold feature. After a week or so of using the app I was prompted to get photo verified and I submitted my picture then. After waiting an entire day of not being able to access the app because my photo was still under review I sent their customer support an email message about the issue. Later the same day, i still had received no response back but was able to again access the app. A day later I was prompted that my account was banned. Between getting photo verified and being banned I messaged zero people and before that I had not in weeks if at all after my initial download of the app. I tried to reach out to their customer service via phone and I received busy signals, I reached out again using email and have not gotten a response. This was an extremely frustrating situation that do not completely understand myself but I have moved on from it. This review is to state my experience so that viewers are aware of the risk they take by just using the app.
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.
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.
Dissappointed user 55372 - Took a simple, decently working app and ruined it.
I’m a software engineer. Tinder in concept is not a difficult app to implement. I’ve had the app on and off over several years, and it used to function fine and give off the impression of being fair in presenting potential matches. In the past couple years they have somehow taken a perfectly decent app and ruined it. The app is very clearly now about maximizing profit at the expense of the user. This is made abundantly clear by shoving paid features down our throats and showing higher quantities of higher liked users only to paying members. Meanwhile non-paid members are left with a limited experience and fewer matches. The decision makers at Tinder are insulting the user’s intelligence by thinking we won’t notice it. The users notice this and are vacating the app. The user base is clearly not as alive as it used to be and I’m sure Tinder sees declining numbers in there regular user count reports. And after putting up with all of this, they have the nerve to randomly ban and delete my account, with zero warning or explanation, thus deleting all conversations I had going. If any other app developers want an example of how to take a decent app and run it into the ground, look not further than Tinder.
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
Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!
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...
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
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.
Brellaaaa - Worst dating app and customer service ever
Tinder BAN Alert
I am a pretty girl, according to people who have seen me. I’m not a sexist or a racist or a hater. LOL But Tinder banned me for no clear reason, pretty much on the same day I got my Tinder Gold. At first, I was shadowbanned, which made me feel like a ghost. So I emailed the team, and a few hours later, they unbanned me, and I started to use my account again. Then, an hour later, I was asked to take a selfie to get verification, which I did. And then it took ages to get the verification done, so I emailed Tinder staff again. Another few hours later, they replied and told me I could use my account without any issue, but 40 minutes later, I got banned for life. So I had to emailed them again, and this time they told me it was final decision. The whole thing is just so weird, abrupt, and rude, along with their inconsistency. So , for those guys who have complained about being banned for no reason, here I am, a pretty girl can also be banned for no reason. LOL
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.
Lillrose9 - WORST DATING APP
I’ve had this app for 4 years, I feel like everyone only uses it because it’s so popular and not because it’s good.
While you do find people on it, it’s horribly faulty and poorly run. Once you reach a certain amount of matches the app won’t even open and glitches constantly. They also read every single message sent via the app and monitor them. Stupidly I was joking around with a match and said I was 17, (I’m actually 22 and have a license to prove it) they read that message and banned my account with no hesitation. Super creepy that they read everything you say… I’m sure everyone will agree. Private messages are supposed to stay private. Surely there is a law banning this or something?
There’s no way of retrieving my account or proving I am 22 either because customer service simply doesn’t care to help.
Horrible app. Definitely download Bumble or Hinge and save yourself the stress of having your messages read.
Rhee89 - So many glitches & no option to send photos
They seem to always be exterminating “pesky bugs” but the never seem to exterminate those “pesky bugs”. Also there is so many glitches that I don’t actually believe they do anything to the app to improve it or fix it in their updates. App freezes or lags constantly. It kicks me out and one minute I have 400 likes and the next only 23. Also there is no option to send photos. I mean that would be helpful so I don’t have to keep adding people to snapchat and then deleting them when convo does off. Maybe consider it and also consider a feedback option so the people could tell you what they want to make a better experience for them on the app. Also don’t bother asking their IT for help. They just copy and paste already written messages. Monkeys could do a better job just saying
Jvous nike - Fix this !! Brand new account !! Banned for no reason
Hey I just created a new account a 1 week ago after losing my previous one ( because I had no more access to the old number I opened my account with and unfortunately didn’t attached an email either ) anyway. So this time I have a new number I’m creating my account attached a email to it to be sure to not loose it again ! , my pictures were really basic nothing offensive, my bio almost empty just saying in it ( French and I’would complete this when I have time I’ve got stuff to do before ) nothing offensive here either ! A few matches mainly same people with who I matched with my previous account or people that I already know ! I haven’t spoken to anyone !!!! So impossible for me to be offensive or breaking any rules here !!! So what is the problem here ??? And don’t tell me I broke any community rules and that I have to read because it is impossible !!!
RottenPenguin - Money gouging
You pay 45 a month for gold get only a couple things. Where as 2 years ago you got a lot more. 65 for the new platinum but still get very little. Great if you’re a woman as you’re spoilt for choice. If you’re a guy, you’re easily able to spend $100 a month to get noticed and for the algorithm to actually show you close matches that are on and to be seen via boosts etc.
Then there is the fake profiles, IG influencers, OF models all trying to get traffic.
I’m not bitter because I got no matcha, I did ok and met a couple people but the very vast majority leave you on read, then you have to also pay for that feature too.
Tinder knows who leaves people on read and aren’t active but won’t do a thing about it. Or any of the other issues with the app and service. I’d like to see them develop another app for serious relationships and keep this for their hook up culture as I think that is all it is good for...
Daniel_Son29 - Restricting & isolating
The only way they keep you logging on is by not letting you see the profiles in your area. The app is literally designed to make it harder to find people so it can get you to pay for access to those profiles. When they are competing with Grindr this means most gay guys just stay on Grindr so it’s not worth paying on here because even if you do it’s a smaller dating pool than what you get on Grindr for free anyway. This is ok as a backup dating app but I’d honestly look elsewhere if you want successful outcomes. All you get from tinder is bait notifications to try to get you to log back in. The notification begging just comes off as sad. The app needs you more than the value you get from it & basically begs you multiple times a day to log in. The resulting experience is often disappointing. You’ll be lucky if you’re allowed to view more than 5profiles within 50km whenever you log on.
Andydtd - Banned for nothing and unhelpful “Support” team
I have never left a negative review on anything in my life but I couldn’t walk away from this. Absolutely disappointing experience. I opened my tinder app to find my account was banned unexpectedly for no reason at all. When inquiring with the support team as to why, on multiple occasions I was just told that the guidelines and terms are taken seriously and I was not actually provided with any explanation as to why I was banned.
When I asked for an explanation all I got told was that one could not be provided at this time and still no actual answer as to why I was suddenly banned for life.
For a support team I have received absolutely no support, no help, no explanations and no effort. Pretty poor form considering I did nothing to breach any guidelines or terms. Pretty disappointed to say the least and if I could give this zero stars I would.
Do better tinder.
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.
Natee97 - Find another Avenue
If you find yourself someone that values respect and honesty then this app unfortunately is not for you, if you find yourself lucky enough to find the one on here then congratulation you are 1 in a million (not an accurate statistic) that has managed to scrape the good from the bottom of the tub, the rest of the site is riddled with toxic people that only care about themselves and have no motivation to find self growth, people that will blame you for there mistakes and have truely not found themselves, if you are looking for something honest and caring unfortunately if you were like me, you will have to venture out into that dangerous world to find it, because you reading this, it is not here for you, I promise you that.
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.
Shilpickle - Banned for no reason
I used to love using this app I've had it for years but I have just been permanently banned without warning and there is no option to appeal my ban. I have messaged the tinder support team and they refuse to give me a reason as to why I was banned. I have read the community guidelines and terms of service multiple times and I haven't violated any of them. What is the point of even having them if it doesn't matter if you follow them? It's just the same automated responses from customer service, "sorry we are unable to give you any more info at this time" just absolutely ridiculous that you dish out bans for no reason at all. I know I am not the only one with this problem. Tinder needs to sort its customer service out. Unbelievable that you can receive such a harsh and immediate penalty with no justification or reason. Very disappointed
Mattymitch98 - Needs a few changes
I honestly love this app. It’s very good. Quite sleek and easy to navigate
I just have a couple of things that I believe will be useful:
- Blocking function: It has occurred multiple times that profiles that are clearly spam or that I'm not interested in keep returning to my swipe stack even after reporting that Im not interested multiple times. So a blocking function would be useful to help make these profiles stop returning to the swipe stack, allowing new profiles to come through and create more opportunities for successful matches
- Dark mode: I have Autism. Which involves sensory processing issues. Which means that too much sensory stimulation can send me into shock or make me not want to use anything that’s causing it. Bright lights can often do this and so I often dont like white backgrounds. I feel like im not the only Tinder user that struggles like this.
And I feel that adding a Dark mode will make the app much more comfortable for users like myself.
REDJJGAMER14 - People using it for the wrong purpose
I was on tinder to look for a new genuine relationship and trying to make a connection. However it’s not the fault of the app but more of the users. They don’t use the app as intended and only promote their social media’s to gain followers. They also use the app to just find friends and such. What’s the point in using the app as intended if you’re only their to find friends. There’s more to life then social media. For those like me who has been struggling to find true love I feel you. For those who manage to find a relationship at the end then awesome. Unfortunately it’s the users that really kill the whole dating experience. For those people who are not using it for the right purposes, you are one of the worst people to come across.
Kippy2166 - It changed my life
Of course there r a lot of idiots on this app and sometimes it seems like no one decent will ever match u.
But trust me it will happen. I’ve been on this app a very long time and I’ve met up with countless people and as frustrating as it was thinking nothing will change. It was well worth the wait and I’ve now fallen in love with the most amazing woman and it’s now a year and a half later since I met her and I haven’t looked back since. I’ve never been happier and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her.
Because of this app my life now will never be the same.
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.
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.
Rhyske - Poor customer service, bans people for no reason, poorly optimised app full of bugs and glitches
Just paid for 6months of tinder gold and literally a week after forking out money to this viper of an application, I get banned for no reason, no explanation ect checked their terms and conditions and know FOR A FACT I have not broken any rules… Attempted to appeal and you are just met with a useless automated generic response because they’re quite obviously THAT lazy to have any sort of customer service what so ever and their customers mean absolutely nothing to them. This app is a scam, not to mention the countless times all my matches dissapeared and or the messages with all of my matches disappeared only for me to reinstall the app and have my matches re appear but the messages completely wiped… Stupid app.
Spicy_turnip - Banned after raising issue with app
I’ve used Tinder in the past and recently decided to re-install and get Gold. Pretty soon I started seeing a lot of matches disappear. At first I thought I was just being unmatched, except I’d get replies from “invisible matches” which I then couldn’t read. This happened more often until literally every new match would disappear. When I wrote to customer support, I was banned immediately for violating the T&C’s, though no reason was given even after I repeatedly asked for one.
Not only is this the first service I’ve been banned from, but now the people I met think they’ve been ghosted.
After reading other reviews, I’m convinced Tinder has become a scam and as soon as people raise an issue they get banned on the spot. Do not use.
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.
Okio123 - So many predators. Not safe for women
When you match with a man and the only thing he says to is you is DTF? is one of the most painful dehumanising experiences which is really common on tinder. It’s scary to know that the guys you pass every day on the street and work with are actually closet predators . The simplicity and concept of tinder is brilliant however I actually want a way to take some of the harassment I experience to court. Girls I recommend using it for fun but don’t actually meet the creeps or give them what they want. Ever.
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.
🖲Allegro🖲 - Prompting for push notifications is terrible
Turning off notifications for this app results in multiple, inescapable prompts reminding you incessantly that you’ve turned notifications off.
Yes, I’ve turned notifications off for this app - it was a conscious choice. I wanted to reduce the amount of time I spend checking messages rather than straight up uninstall the app. This decision however has resulted in a multitude of banners covering half my screen and constantly prompting me to turn notifications back on.
One of the worst UX decisions I’ve seen implemented in an app in a long while - rather than let me customise my own settings, the options are either be bombarded with badges and notifications or to completely uninstall.
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.
Markmcgowan - Not very impressed
This is basically an app that is controlled for the only purpose of making money, the app doesn’t actually want to help you meet people as that limits there potential customer pool, the aim is to get you to pay to see likes and matches ect ect, it will claim you have a new match when there isn’t one just to get you to open the app if you haven’t been on it for a few days, if you open the app daily you won’t get notifications as they have you already hooked, don’t open the app for a few days and all these notifications about new matches and likes appear then once you open the app there’s no actual notifications it’s all just to get you to open it.
Baaaaaaba - Absolutely disgusting company
Also no reply about a refund for the month that I had just payed for days ago.
Happy to take my money for years, but won’t even give me the courtesy of a human response and tell me why on earth I was banned, disgraceful!
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 🤷🏼♂️
ErnestBoss - Do not use this app people please
Used my own pictures, didn’t match or talk to anyone yet so I already knew I wasn’t reported. Suddenly got asked to verify, provided good images for verification, even put on the same outfit in case that would help. Then I got banned, no reason, no explanation, pretty sure it was AI determining if the verification matches, not real people. Tinder is a really bad app in 2021 and should really be more customer friendly, they do not have customer service, real time support or phone number. Really really bad app and the developer’s parents is probably ashamed of their child or rolling in their grave. The whole tinder team is probably scummy people too if they don’t realise the issue.
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.
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!
Bigazza95 - Got banned for no reason
I loved using tinder by talking to nice people of making a connection and had a great experience on it an I am disappointed a lot of being falsely banned for no reason when they are other users who are going around make up false reports then have them banned for no reason when they haven’t done anything wrong also I’m deeply sorry tinder an like to have a chance again
Sénor Olive - We get it, you want an endless scroll
Despite me following over 500 various people and content creators, Insta feels the need to litter my feed with “suggested posts” to further develop an algorithm of which I’ll scroll for eternity. You cannot disable it, only to manually hide the post each time I see it, the frequency of which is around every 2 to 3 normal posts, 1 of them probably an ad. If my current Instagram experience is a ratio of 2 posts of accounts I actually follow and 2 posts that are either advertisements or unrelated posts, that’s not good. Let me disable this feature so I can actually watch what I want.
Huso95 - Has become a money scam
Where to even start !?!? Where’s the option for zero stars ?
I can’t believe how bad this app has gotten. No more super likes at all you have to pay for them now, not even one every 24hrs. I payed for tinder plus for unlimited likes and decided to do a little test. Upon testing I found out that I had 7 likes but I couldn’t see them because I don’t have ‘tinder gold’ which is almost $50 a month.
Not to mention all the profiles that are fake and asks for money to buy their content only fans porn.
Here’s what gets me. I payed for unlimited likes. I have been swiping for a week Straight and not one of these matches have come up ? How come ? app is has become a scam ! I’ve swiped over 300 people and not one of those has been a match but apparently I’ll have 7 available if I pay for gold. But I’m already paying for plus !!! Biggest scam going around I will definitely do a little more digging and reporting to authorities in Australia.
You are a scam !! Should be ashamed!!
Djalexinthemix - Poor experience
Whilst there are some people I speak to on tinder, overall, extremely poor user experience.
I’ve used Gold, which is fine, however this is where I can see Tinder scamming or baiting it’s users.
When your membership lapses, you suddenly get 20+ who like you.
Whilst, on gold, I’d get a fair few, but nothing as large as that. When you resubscribe and go through it I noticed that a lot of the people seemed like fake profiles or bots.
Also why is it when I swipe left, do I see the same people only a week later. It feels like it just recycles the same people over and over again.
The other issue, when you subscribe, for whatever reason, it set me to a 12 month subscription to Gold. Even though it stated a monthly payment. It wouldn’t even let me go through the subscription options, thinking I may of not selected it properly.
Let’s face it, tinder needs it to not work, so it makes money from subscriptions, add ons and advertising revenue.
It won’t work. Stay away.
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.
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.
K_pizzle - Digital extortion
This app represents digital extortion. First you need to pay just to have unlimited likes. Then almost double that as they hold your matches ransom unless you pay for the next tier up to “see” your matches. App showed I had three people who had liked me, but I ran out of potential matches with those three still hidden unless I pay for the next level of subscription. Don’t download this app. If you are going to pay that much, best go to one of the professional matchmaking sites where you will have a real chance at finding someone and not a chat bot.
Bmk583 - Banned without appeal
Tinder, I’m really disappointed there is no appeal process or way to contact your team regarding a ban. My work colleague used my phone to message a person without my permission when I left my phone at my desk. When I found the conversation I was horrified and apologised to the person immediately. I’ve never spoken like that to any other match - and that can be attested to by reviewing all of my other conversations! Now I’ve lost contact with people who I really wanted to meet up with.
Please give me my account back! Also, please consider making an appeals process for others who may find themselves in the same unfortunate situation.
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.

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!!!
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.
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🙄
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
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.
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.
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 :)
Majoron - Sexual assault
Matched with a girl, was going really well until we realized we had a mutual acquaintance. Turned out her best friend is the person who sexually assaulted me 5 years ago. She didn’t believe me, said I was gaslighting and reported my account. Tinder banned me overnight but kept my subscription active. When I tried to log back in Tinder informed me I would never be able to have another account linked to any of my existing accounts or phone numbers.
She was the first person I felt safe enough to tell.
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.
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.
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.
Henry nguyeennnn - banned for no reason
banned without any notification or reasons
Calissdecaliss - Banned me
They banned me saying I’m underage.
I’m sorry sir but my birth certificate says otherwise. I’m so mad because I lost all connections with my matches.
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
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.
Pr0thmann - 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.
Antho2002222 - Ban for no reason
I got ban for no reason how can I contact tinder
Hannahffffff - Banned for no reason
Should be a review process to be unbanned
EfIng Tndr - Harassment allowed ?
My account got taken away because my ex reported me for solicitation with zero proof or reason other than him being petty. I wasn’t given any opportunity to prove my side and they literally removed my account without notice based on unsubstantiated claims. Now I have to get a new number to use this app if I want to. Which I won’t cause I don’t. Super misogynistic to just take women’s accounts down when someone is being vengeful but when men are flagged for actual provable harassment their accounts aren’t taken down without evidence and when evidence is given they are only suspended for a short time. What is the reason for this clear double standard?
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.
Landan R - Banned without warning or reason
Payed 113 usd just to have them scam me refuse a refund or any reasoning. Basically criminal
Jason-202015382 - Scam
Please DO NOT give your phone number to Tinder.
What will happen is that they will sell your phone number to other companies. And those companies are SCAM. They will call you many times a day trying to scam you. I have used 2 different phone numbers at different times. After a few days, the number of scams calling me dramatically increased.
PLEASE BE COUSCOUS.
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
Brayden sakowski - Customer service
Had some girl harassing me and besides banning her I got banned for making a childish remark on my end, no block feature so I was rude. And contacted them apologizing and just letting them know she wouldn’t stop spamming and harassing me and my account gets banned, the customer service for this app is terrible,
Just want good quality - No customer service
Honestly this app is great, this is new way to meet tons of people. A lot of people here complaining about not having a lot of matches or people replying is on them.
Having said that a lot of people here are complaining about being banned with no explanation.
The only customer support they have is an automated robot which doesn’t seem to actually review your file and they don’t have a customer support number the only number i found tried scamming me.
So essentially they don’t seem to care about customers they have stated they take reports seriously (bullying, abuse) which is must’ve what happened to me yet they do not check the legitimacy of the report.
Although they have not considered there are people that will report out of spite / grudge which is a form of bullying and abuse so there system is in need to be updated.
Disappointed in the zero customer service in a large company but such is life, seeing as i’m banned now for life this will be my last interaction with this business.
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.
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.
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
Ungad_og - Banned for no reason
I paid for this service and was banned for no reason and wasted half a month of premium. And customer service refused to help and give any sort of explanation I’m so mad😡
Get an appeals process - No appeals. It’s ridiculous.
I got banned for writing sugar daddies only in my bio. I’m a 34 yr old dude that was obviously joking. It’s ridiculous there’s no appeals process to being banned. Half the app is fake and they manage to keep real people off.
Benbenny0204 - Very bad
Just wasting your time with this app.
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.
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.
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
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!
Cressidahale - 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.
Dimabilansmullet - Banned and for what?
I got banned with no warning and for no reason, I was actually having a nice conversation for once and now I’m banned! I’m over 18, I didn’t have nudes on my profile, there was no reason for it. And of course there’s no way to actually contact tinder to even understand why you got banned
Don worry bout it boo - Blocked for no reason ??
I can’t get back into my account I even sent them an email and all they said is will look into this...
Lionkingrr - Banned without a reason
I installed the app last night, woke up to 20likes, didn’t even swipe right yet or talk to anyone and I was already banned. Wth
Iaintnobetamale - Unclear why I got banned
Logged in today to see that my account got banned. Never put in any inappropriate photos or anything. This app is a joke
Slaminman - Wtf
I’ve never used tinder before. I’m on here for the first time but my account has been banned. I don’t get it. Plus they don’t give me an excuse as to why
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
*Ria* - Banned for no reason
I made my account today and I was swiping through and then tinder logged me out and when I tried to log back in it said I was banned. For what? Nothing? I guess this is a sign the world wants me to stay a virgin single for the rest of my life 😤😠
V1311 - Bullied
Been bullied on this app twice.
Brah_69 - ban
got ban literally for no reason
Specogecko - Banned for no apparent reason
Been banned twice for no apparent reason. First time I was eventually unbanned without any notice. Still currently banned for a second time for no apparent reason. Both times customer service was no help and sent copy-paste emails basically saying there’s nothing we can do and we don’t know why you were banned.
Dont waste money on tinder - Scam
Tinder banned my account after,i purchased subscription without providing any reason.
Never buy a subscription it’s waste of money and time
Michel Campeau - Banning people frenzy
BE WARNED. We (a couple) have been on Tinder for close to 10 years. Met very nice people. But just last week, without warning and having had no contact in a very long while with any one, we received a message from Tinder when I open the app. It read:
Trying to reach someone to get help or at the very least an idea of what we did wrong, we only got the exact same message from this very cold and bizarre organization.

New App that is Tinder but instead of dating its people you can do drugs with
Thinking about how I was able to find, on Tinder, a group of people to test out a new web app I made before an actual date. Gotta love Bay Area dating culture

Do people still use Tinder? How many new dating apps are there now? Its been like 2 years lol
Gianna Dior ✨
@StoneBove @Tinder i’ve stuck with the people i already knew. i’m not really interested in dating new people, i’ll just switch around the old ones.
