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.

Hi! If you want to find new online dating, enter talаlovе24 in Goоgle search, a lot of girls and guys online, I already found a girl... 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. Tindеr has really slippеd. What used to be a brilliantly simple and effective dating app has turnеd into a frustrating, convoluted, pay-walled mess. For Tinder to be even remоtely 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 doеs that for free. Wanna leave a comment on someone's picture? Surely you can do that with the Gold membership, right? Nope. Gotta shеll out even more monеy 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 wеek, and you're still hounded with pop ups every 10 minutеs to try out their creepiest feature - the super like. All оf this on top of the inherent dating app negаtives (ghosting, catfishing, creeps, excessive filters, etc) and you're in for a miserable ride. Save yourself the stress and money and trу 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 gоod buzz.

Gone down hill
This app used to be great however now the premium prices have gone up but the app has gotten worse, I would get many matches on tinder of beautiful girls however there’s a catch a lot of these girls most likely just want promote their only fans, I’ve had many matches and 9/10 they are just girls looking to promote only fans in United States. I say that because I’ve actually chatted with one of the girls through her only fans to see where she was from. I told her that we matched on tinder and she admitted that she is only on tinder to promote her only fans she also told me she was actually from Whales even though it told me she was just 3 miles away, I know she probably had travel mode or something however this is actually happening more often just recently I matched another girl on tinder and you guessed it, some pretty girl wanting me to check out her only fans. I’m not the best looking dude in the world but in the past I’ve had greater luck, I went on many dates and even dated someone I met on tinder for a while and that was without paying, now I pay to use the premium features and only match girls who only want to promote their only fans. I don’t really want to rip on these girls even though they don’t have the intention of dating on here, however I do want to warn people that tinder is not what it used to be and expect match with people who don’t have the intention of dating.

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.

wack
Tinder unprofessionally and un-provokingly blocked and banned my account. I contacted Tinder to gain clarity on this and they've refused to explain the reason behind the barbaric treatment and sent me a link to their guidelines which are not specific enough to understand why they've treated me so poorly. I've thoroughly read through the guidelines, and adhere to them all. I meet the required age, I use my own appropriate photographs and I meet all content and conduct guidelines as well as all other Tinder guidelines. I am beginning to think my profile may have been hacked as my phone was misplaced over the last week and I do not have a password on it. Tinder refusing to tell me what the specific issue is/was makes it impossible to be able to effectively appeal or be given a chance to explain any mishaps. Previous behavior is a good indicator of future behavior, as I mentioned above, I have been a successful Tinder user without issues on and off for multiple years now in multiple cities, without issue and the company should take this into consideration. I have recently not done anything differently than I have in the past and have totally adhered to all Tinder required guidelines, leading me to believe that perhaps my account was hacked or mishandled by someone other than myself when being outside of my possession (unknowingly to myself.) I do not deserve this barbaric and unprofessional treatment.

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.

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.

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

This app is a scam. (Let me explain).
This app is misleading and tries to keep you paying for as long as possible. When you first sign up (as a man) is give you a ton of matches. Then they will get you to talk to 3 or 4 women. They will chat with you for a day or two and then stop writing out of the blue. It’s like clockwork for every match with the free version. They are trying to give you a small taste of the success you can have with these short conversations. These are either paid people or AI bots that make you think “wow! I have someone really chatting with me! If I just pay for the subscription, think of all the matches I will get!” I created a new account a few weeks ago to test this, and sure enough that’s exactly what happened. I currently have 19 matches just waiting for me if I only paid Tinder. I fell for this in the past. I paid the money to have a grand total of three responses. The three responses were fake because they followed the same pattern as when I didn’t pay. The subscription in general is worthless. After the flood of matches at first, the matches get less and less over time. I kept an account going for 6 months and every month the matches I got went down. By month 6, I had zero matches. What was I paying for? Tinder is a scam that manipulates profiles and possible matches for their own personal money gain.

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.

Hit and mostly miss
So, as a guy, specifically a man of color, the whole dating app experience can be polarizing. I’ve kind of experienced it all personally. On one end, I’ve had absolutely nothing happen: no matches, no conversations, very little engagement. On the other hand, I’ve had the opposite: many likes, matches with women I was legitimately interested in, dates, whatever. With that, as someone looking for a long-term partner, tinder isn’t great. The app is swarmed with bots and scammers for one thing, and it can be hard to connect with women on the same/similar page. Still, the fact that tinder remains the most popular platform kind of necessitates it thus far. I’ve even gotten platinum here recently and honestly cannot say that I’d recommend it. Very little good seems to have come out of it. Personally, I’m looking forward to graduating from grad school and having more free time to actually pursue a relationship outside of a cold, calculated app designed to capitalize on people’s desires for companionship (a very human desire mind you). At this point, it seems that the dating apps in general care more about cashing in rather than providing a decent service. Good luck to whoever reads this and I hope the new year finds you well!

App ALLOWS & encourages scammers galore!
Join and spend hundreds of dollars to find nonstop scammers messaging you from all around the world using one stolen photo after another and copy / paste their bios. Tinder staff are too inept to see the through the blaring obvious fakes they are made over and over and over. Not like really basic internet security could fix that. That’s too much for Tinder. But to one up it, Tinder allows you to FAKE your own location and instantly make everyone else think you’re right next door! And they do nothing to alert everyone else the location has been faked. So while you spend your time (and SO MUCH money) talking to people that pretend to be local, Tinder just laughs since they know they are really 5,000 miles away based on their actual GPS that Tinder knows all along… They’ll take your money and waste massive amounts of time. For nothing. 👎🏼 w/Tinder staff The app has become packed FULL of fake accounts & scammers. They never do anything with nonstop reports. On social media people talk about this so much too and yet the fake accounts using even celebrity photos keep increasing exponentially, and “straight women” in the Men for Men section. Yet Tinder wants to charge EXTREMELY high rates for “better service”. For what? Just to be spammed endlessly by scam accounts… Tinder has become useless and is a scam in itself now.

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 subscriptions on the chance you’re banned out of nowhere. At least until the app recognizes there are issues and attempts to fix them.

Changing for the better?
Honestly, Tinder has come a long way since I last tried using it. That might not be to everyone’s liking, but as someone hoping to find people to go out with and possibly develop a relationship with, I think it’s pretty good. At this point, Tinder feels like a decent mix of speedy swiping but with enough substance in a profile to get some sort of measure of the person beyond looks - when people bother to fill out their bio anyhow. Obviously it’s far from perfect but dating apps in general are probably a flawed concept. Probably half of the functionality is meant to make things difficult so that you give in and pay the rather significant subscription fees. One pretty specific complaint that I have is that with the subscription comes the ability to send people messages along with the “Super Like” feature. I honestly think that should be available in general without the need to pay. Could just limit the amount a person can do it. I also think it should be something you can do on profiles you’ve already swiped on. Anyways, back to using this app as a distraction and probably little else!

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.

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. :)

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.

This app has been optimized to ensure you stay on the app and never leave
They have monetized the heck out of this app and this app will not leave you alone so long as it’s installed on your phone. It sends you messages and alerts every 5 seconds and none of them are worth reading! It’s like the pesky lil kid that use to follow other kids around that wouldn’t shut up until they beat em up. It is annoying and I shouldn’t have to shut down tinder notifications so that I’m not getting a message to tell me to open up the darn app. The app functions but it’s such a paywall that I don’t want to use it. There are a ton of better apps out there that don’t claim to be free that provide better services without demanding you pay more for literally everything. Moral of the story. Don’t bug the people with money. You’re just going to tick us off. We have much more important issues to worry about than getting on tender ever 5 seconds. Very few people that are not bots are worth dating. You have a lot of those. Even gals that are diamonds in the rough are marked popular so they won’t match with you unless you pay more after paying more to pay more. I’ve never liked Tinder in comparison to a lot of other apps and I remember why after downloading this app again. It’s just a force of habit since this was the go to app years ago.

Banned for no reason
Like other reviewers, I was banned for no reason. Lately the app was glitchy for me. My profile disappeared from matches and then reappeared. It was odd. So, I had to delete and then redownload the app twice in the last day. Maybe that triggered the ban…? They never explain why & just send you their terms & community guidelines which I doubt they have read because I did nothing that violated it. There was nothing in my profile or correspondences that was against their terms. Everything I wrote was a G rating. I wonder if the men who send 🍆pics are still on there. I guess it’s time to find another route to meet people. Sad because I had some interesting matches which are now dead in their tracks. Incredibly disappointing since the ban seems so random and unwarranted. And, they prompted me to report a match which was ridiculous. The guy, who was visiting NYC from London, wrote that he met up with friends & visited some galleries. Nothing in our conversation was controversial. I know there are so many people on Tinder, but beware. They behave like a bouncer at a hot club & this could happen to you. Oh, and there’s no warning whatsoever. And in this climate with so many angry men, it’s just ridiculous that they don’t do any research into why people are reported. I get way more customer support from Poshmark if there’s a dispute.

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.

0/5 if I could Horrible customer service time and time again!
I went on a horrible date with a guy I ended up not interested in as he was into drugs and things that I don’t surround myself with. the guy was upset I didn’t want continue our date so he reported me to the app as going against the rules and I am banned. I attempted to explain the situation as I am a rule follower and no one hear my side of the story or help. I used the app for a. Very long time and never had an issue until I met this guy. So. Beyond frustrating as I take rules regulations guidelines and terms and conditions seriously. I have tried multiple times to contact their customer service and everyone continues to quote that they take their terms and regulations seriously but no one will elaborate or explain what exactly I did wrong. I was responded to by the developer who then told me to contact them and they will review it only to get the same excuse of here are our terms and conditions and we cannot elaborate. This company doesn’t care about their terms and contracts and don’t take customer service seriously and take false accusations and ban those who actually want to find someone verses those who actual do not follow their own terms and conditions and don’t look into anything and won’t actually help or look into it like they say they will

Banned by bots
Do not get Tinder. I had the app for a long time when it came out, never had an issue. I recently got the app and decided let’s go premium. Two days later I was shadow banned and then emailed saying “my bad, you are visible”. Because of this I downloaded Hinge. On Tinder I have only matched with bots that want Snapchats so they can try to sell their content, one in every 10 being a real person. Then all of a sudden I log in one day to see that I was Banned. I reached out to the company via email only to get the answer that they have no information on why I was banned and are unable to look into it. A week later I was banned for the reason that Match owns Tinder and Hinge along with other apps. Hinge told me that Tinder would be able to provide me with information on why I was banned, when I reached out to them again I was replied with this. “Unfortunately even with no proof that you have violated the terms and policies we have in place, we cannot undo the process we have taken. We have no way to appeal banned accounts. Based off of information we have on your account, it was reported multiple times by users who no longer use the app. Thanks.” So they basically confessed that I was banned by bots and have no way to look into it. Don’t get the app, at least Hinge has a nice customer service email.

Tinder ruined dating and bans without reason
I’ve been using tinder since 18 (5 years) and this app has slowly but steadily gone downhill since. Every feature has been monetized, it seems like you get less free likes every time you open the app, and their verification system is broken beyond belief. Matches are incredibly rare unless you are paying for a top tier subscription and the people who do match with you are rarely in the area or people who you would normally like. The algorithm tries it’s hardest to match you with people who it knows you won’t work with, to keep you looking and paying. Just when I didn’t think it could get any worse, Tinder banned me, citing its 90 page “terms of service” with no specific instance of a rule that had been broken. I tried to reach out to their support team, who “helpfully” told me I was banned for “violating TOS” (again, no explanation) and that I was not allowed to appeal, and that future communications of mine would be ignored. This company has single-handedly destroyed modern dating. Being banned from Tinder makes it significantly less likely you’ll be able to find a partner in today’s world. I hope that their staff is happy with the world they’ve helped create, because it is a horrible and cold world devoid of any actual love. If I could give them 0 stars I absolutely would.

Permanently banned for no reason
I had my account for not even an entire year (maybe 4 to 5 months) and I went to check my new likes one morning. I get in the app and it says I have been permanently banned. I immediately reach out to the $h!t]e$t customer service department in the world to see why my account was banned. Like so many others who’ve had this issue, nothing about my account violated or even came close to violating their policies. My pics were safe and clean, and none of my conversations were explicit or vulgar at all. I explained that my account was suddenly banned out of nowhere and I just wanted to know why exactly it was. When I got a response, they gave me a generic reply saying that unfortunately there’s nothing they can do about it. The ban is permanent. I got zero explanation for why I was banned and the message I got from them was clearly copied and pasted. Also (for those of you that don’t know) when Tinder bans you, you’re very likely to be banned from other dating apps as well. I tried Bumble afterwards and was banned immediately after creating my account.

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.

FIX YOUR APP AND SITE
I normally love Tinder and with their newest updates they include the ability to share a lot more information about yourself than you could before (if you smoke, are 420 friendly, are in college, etc) and you can even specify what you are looking for as far as a long term, short term, or hookup which is immensely helpful. HOWEVER, all of these great features are COMPLETELY WORTHLESS when I am not matching with ANYONE and I can’t see the messages my matches are sending me. I must have swiped through 200+ with no matches AT ALL. NONE. That’s incredibly abnormal based on my use of Tinder up to this point. One match who I was really interested in and talked to for a day, I couldn’t see his messages at all when he was trying to contact me after our first initial chat. Luckily I was able to reconnect with him on Instagram after I realized I wasn’t seeing his messages. He then sent me a screenshot that showed all the messages he sent that I did not receive. I’m not sure if these issues apply exclusively to the app though because I tried on their site and had the same problems. And I must have messed with my settings and deleted and reinstalled the app on my phone 10 times, and still nothing worked. The match I reconnected with told me Tinder has also been buggy for him as well. FIX YOUR APP, TINDER.

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

Waste of time and money
After signing up for the $40 month level, I still am not able to see who “likes” me, nor can I message a single person I’m shown. I’m also shown the same profiles every single day, and must wade through the same ones I did not “like” the previous day. (Are these profiles even active by real people, or are they algorithm driven A.I. accounts?) I may have wasted $40, but I’ve learned my lesson about Tinder. Won’t happen again, since I’ve cancelled my subscription and will be allowing it to expire at the end of the month. Update 3 November 2023 I have been unable to delete my account through this app and on their website. I have followed their directions regarding deleting my account, all to no avail. I have contacted Tinder support several times, with no results. They merely reply with a copy of the instructions I’ve already completed. It is my opinion that the user is not meant to be able to delete their account, for the purpose of allowing Tinder to use your account as they see fit, after you give up in frustration. I have forwarded a copy of my latest email correspondence, demanding the deletion of my account, to my State Office of the Attorney General. Never again will I use, or recommend Tinder to anyone. Wish I could get a refund for what I paid. Lesson learned.

Welp
They now limited poly couples from having a joint profile, which is pointless because now we’re just going to have more people we end up accidentally matching with that turn out to be someone in a poly relationship. It makes more sense to give people in poly/open/enm relationships *their own category* so that people who are looking for that type of relationship or interaction can find each other, but not ending up in the same pool with people who are interested in monogamy. Tinder is the biggest dating app thus it has the most amount of users, so that’s both good and bad. More people you don’t find remotely attractive to swipe through, and constantly being reminded you have 99+ likes or whatever, but ultimately you’re more likely to find at least a few people to choose from to talk to. A lot of creeps and people that are just looking for hookups, or people that don’t bother to even read your bio and just swipe based on photos, which is annoying but expected on any dating app. But there’s also more of a chance of finding someone compatible. Just make sure you don’t accidentally meet your soulmate and blow it on the first date.

Admitted to banning my by accident - now blocked forever
I’m like the thousands of others who left a one star review about being banned for no reason at all. My account was banned. I have the most vanilla account on the planet and was certain it was an error. Tinder responded and admitted it was their error and that my account was banned (forever) because it was accidentally flagged as a spam account. Then they proceed to tell me to sign up again, but that’s impossible because you have to use your phone number to sign up (you can’t use a burn number) and my phone number is forever banned. So thanks Tinder for having the worst algorithm on the planet that bans real accounts FOREVER with no way for those people to ever get back on the app. You have an obligation to have a more sensitive and compassionate process around this. You know many of the people on your app are already feeling rejected, lonely, and depressed, and you make it worse by banning them from a way to connect with others and accusing them of doing something they didn’t do. It’s so wrong on so many levels. I mean does anyone on your team actually read these reviews?! You would think you would change the process of banning accounts by now given the thousands of complaints that say they all experienced the exact same thing.

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

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.

Banned for No Reason
I was banned about 12 hours after making my account. I read through the community guidelines. I hadn’t had any matches yet so I couldn’t have said anything mean, all the pictures were fully clothed and of me from the last year, and everything in my bio/prompts was respectful. There was no personal info about me like my usernames or anything. There are only two things I can think of as possibilities for me being banned 1) they don’t think I look like my pictures because my hair was cut short recently and was uncombed when I went to verify or 2) they thought my answer to the prompt “I’ll fall for you if…” was soliciting (I said you buy me flowers or little trinkets that made you think of me.). I contacted support because I have no idea how I violated the guidelines - I’ve had an account in the past and an account on a different app with identical pictures and bio/answers and was never flagged. All they told me was I violated guidelines. If they would outline specifically what I did that violated guidelines, I would not be upset, but I read through the guidelines and I don’t believe I did anything wrong and the fact that support won’t review my account again and tell me what I did wrong indicates to me that they don’t know what I did wrong either but are too stubborn to admit it.

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. Previous review: 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.

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.

Completely fraudulent
I’m far from the only person who experienced this, but in case someone who doesn’t know and is thinking of getting this app is reading this: Tinder and pretty much all dating apps are scams to get you to shell out money to them and keep shelling out money to them. They prey on loneliness. Maybe once they worked, but not anymore. You sign up with a basic account, no money, and you see you’re getting likes. Then you pay for a membership and the likes disappear. And no matter how much you swipe, super like, or boost, they don’t come back. It took me too long to realize that Tinder’s hope is that you’ll pay them more money after paying for a subscription. And they’ll do anything, including lie about their predatory business practices, in order to bleed you dry. Especially if you’re a guy, you have next to no chance of finding love on this app. Stay away from Tinder, Hinge, and any other dating apps run by the “Match Group.” They’re not really dating apps anymore. They’re money farms that use people’s - especially men’s - loneliness to make money. I can’t think of anything more despicable and demoralizing. Save yourself the money and the heartache. Do not, under any circumstances, download a dating app. But if you must download a dating app, download a different one than this.

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.

App doesn’t even work
I’d give 0 stars if I could, back when the app ACTUALLY worked it was 4 star worthy possibly even 5 stars, in the past 8 months I tried to deactivate my account and it wouldn’t let me, so I had no choice but to pause it. Months later I come back and “reactivate” my account. I start swiping through “potential” matches after updating my profile, close app, re-open. Next thing you know 8/10 of all the people I just swiped on pop back up again, I’ve been getting no matches or likes and in the past I used to get likes, I used to have hundreds of matches, now I can’t even get $10 likes. I can’t deactivate my account. Went to support to see why people are reappearing and they give a sorry little excerpt that the accounts may be deleted even though the cards say active/or a problem with connection; literally no help or way to actually FIX the situation, and I DEFINITELY know it’s not my connection. This app used to be legit now it just seems like a bum sham and scam. Thoroughly disappointed. If the app actually worked the way it’s supposed to without having to pay then it’d be worthy of at least 4 stars, but the app doesn’t even work properly and I can’t even delete my account, what a load of nonsense. 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽

Will not let you delete account
I bought gold then every time i tried matching with someone it would give me an error message (plus other small bugs). I tried using different wifi, data, i tried logging out, deleting the app, logging in on another device etc. nothing worked so I contacted tinder support. 3 times. Every time I submitted a request I got an email confirming that my request went through and that someone would be in contact with my shortly. Two of the times I reached out, I got an automated email saying my request was being sent to someone higher up and that someone else would be in touch with me shortly. I have heard nothing. I finally contacted apple to get a refund for gold, which went through completely the day before yesterday. I just tried to delete my account, and I am getting an error message no matter what I do. I did some googling and it sounds like this whole situation, not being allowed to delete your account included, is something tinder does to a lot of people as a kind of punishment or something. I’ve reported all of this to the apple store and may be starting a class action lawsuit if this is not resolved by the apple store or by tinder support because not being able to delete your account is a major safety issue.

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!

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.

Playing with people’s lives and hearts
I was really enjoying tinder in canada and was chatting with some great people I planned to meet—until this month— I happened to go for a trip to Peru, one of their “test” zones, and immediately upon entering the country, every single match and conversation I had was suddenly cancelled and “expired” bc they are testing a new expiration feature in South America. I had zero warning and no “countdown”, no chance to extend my time with matches, a clear technical glitch that I wrote support about and which they are taking ZERO responsibility for. I now have no way to contact a person I have been chatting with for 3 months who I was excited to finally meet upon returning from my trip. They are a horrible company that do not care about people or truly helping them connect and find love with other humans. This is a dangerous app. Don’t even try it. It took me so long to find someone I was excited about and now I can’t message them. **update** I tried to contact support and they said they actually won’t help me (lol) so this response from them is bogus. Pathetic excuse for a “relationship” app as they obviously don’t care about the humans involved if they will Willy Nilly expire all their matches and convos without warning bc of a glitch and then do nothing to fix it.

Money fishing app.
I used tinder a few years ago, it was a lot different. I was getting likes on my profile every day, at least one, I paid for the gold once for a month and I eventually found a girl that I dated for the last 3 years. We split up and I chose to download tinder again assuming that I would have the same experience. This is not the case, now there’s 4 different memberships to choose from, you have to pay for everything. I started out for the first 2 months not paying a penny, I would get 3-4 likes on my profile a week at least. As soon as I paid for the gold membership for the last month, I have yet to receive a SINGLE like on my profile but I am getting tons more push notifications to buy or pay for boosts or super likes. Not to mention only about 1/6 people that do like my profile don’t send me a message at all, leading me to believe those are the fake profiles that tinder makes to keep people hooked on buying and paying for extra stuff. I’m not an ugly guy either, I know I’m not that boring to talk to either as I don’t ask dead end questions or talk about myself almost at all unless asked. I do not recommend to use this app unless you are casually swiping and don’t mind being bombarded with ads to pay for things.

Shallow and Fruitless
Imagine a slot machine where you invest your time, money, and dignity only to receive fleeting moments of self-worth while gradually deteriorating your self-esteem until you’re hardly sure of your own value. This is Tinder. I have paid for Tinder platinum for 3 months now, I have spent countless hours swiping, editing and adjusting every small detail of my profile, used all the boosts and super likes and still have ultimately made little to zero progress in the dating realm. Now I know what you’re thinking, I must be doing something wrong, being creepy, boring, or not posting the right pictures or something but I try my best to avoid those specific issues as best as possible. I’ve had more success on hinge without even paying a dime for their service and yet here it feels like they are constantly demanding you for money just to be slightly prioritized for a very short period of time. Not to mention the sheer amount of bots, fake accounts, and people simply not using the app, or only using it to promote their brand is frustrating to say the least. I’m just not sure there’s much you can get from this app other than shallow physical encounters. There is not one other app that has caused me such mental anguish. I wish I could say anything different.

Banned for being trans
I’m a trans girl, and i like to think i’m very pretty, and clearly a lot of other people thought so too I was getting tons of matches. Now obviously I know not everyone is comfortable with that, that’s why the word transgender was the first thing in my bio so people KNOW. and i get not reading bios and just seeing a pretty face and swiping, so before i started a conversation with anyone i would tell them to read my bio, sometimes i’d get unmatched sometimes i wouldn’t. I had maybe 2 or 3 conversations longer than a few texts because I just wanted to scroll on tinder and see what was out there, but I did meet some actually nice people. I even paid for a weeks worth of tinder plus so i wouldn’t run out of swipes. Within TWO days of being on tinder my account was under review, I figured okay i’m sure some people reported me because that’s the way things are, but tinder will clear it up and I can go back to being on the app. NOPE was banned after i spent over 24 hours under review. I paid 14 dollars for a week and got to use it for less than a day. People that had read my bio and I was genuinely connecting with just gone. Tinder support clearly just doesn’t care if you actually do something wrong, you can’t be different and also harmless.

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.

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. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼

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.

Customer Services is PATHETIC
I was banned from Tinder for absolutely nothing. I have had the app for a while and as sad as it is to save I’ve even paid for it for a few months. I never even come close to violating the terms or conditions. I’m genuinely trying to build connections on the app, which is probably where I went wrong. But anyway I was randomly blocked this weekend so as any normal person would do I reached out to customer services to see if maybe they could help explain to me what had happened. After going back and forth with them simply asking for a explanation and receiving the same auto generated response of “Your account has been banned from Tinder for violating our Terms of Use and/or Community Guidelines”, I was told that “We are unable to provide further assistance, and so we may not respond to additional requests about this case”. Excuse me? I’m asking for an answer about MY account and why I can not appeal this. Customer service was absolutely the worst I have ever worked with. There are men on Tinder who assault women they meet on the app & are reported but somehow they continue to have an account. There are men who have their 🍆 just on their profile yet they’re still on there. ALL i’m asking for is an explanation Tinder, that’s it.

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.
