Like other people commenting here saying they were banned for no reason at all, same happened to me, after a month of no use I came online to get a subscription and try my luck because I moved to a big city. And surprise: after few minutes of activity a message popped up: Account banned for violating the agreement or something, really stupid message, I did absolutely nothing to be reported or banned and the worst is that you cannot ever sign up again with same phone number. And you cannot really cheat with voIP numbers or Facebook, you cannot, you might have some luck if you have some hacking skills. Something is going on inside the app, yes, there is lots of bots as usually that wants your email, snapchat, whatsApp..
The developer or owner can’t understand some simple rules how to maintain a secure app. Seems like they went the cheap way by collecting old profiles or undeleted or banned profiles and they use those for advertising...
I did contact them numerous times and trying to get them on the phone with no luck.
Guys, wait for a bit and I will develop a real dating app or website that will be called- 777’ followed by a name. Wish me luck !?
There will be a specific approach to fight the bots and scammers, and the app will not be free to use but there will be no scammers and you will be able to request a full refund up to 3 months if not satisfied.
I haven’t used this app in over five years so I can’t speak to all the updates and new stuff. However, the reason I haven’t used it in over five years is because I’m marrying one of matches. He truly is my perfect match, and it was so simple finding him because of this. I barely knew anyone in my area, because I moved here from across the country. My two best friends knew I had gotten out of a crappy relationship a few months prior, and thought I should be getting out again. So I just downloaded the app and started using it to shut them up. I didn’t think anything would even come of it. Then I started talking to this guy, and we couldn’t stop. We lost so much sleep those first couple weeks just trying to learn all we could about each other. We met up for coffee, and he was the sweetest guy I’d ever met. The rest is history. He’s been there for me ever since, and means the world to me. This app does have a lot of fakes, a-holes, and whatnot, but it’s worth the risk(be safe when you meet though of course). You never know what might happen. It changed my life for the better. A million times better.
***REAL REVIEW FROM SOMEONE WHO ACTUALLY USES THE APP DAILY****
I wish I could give it zero stars. Tinder is by far the worst. I don’t think that anyone that works at Tinder actually uses Tinder. How it became so mainstream is beyond me. I have reached out on multiple occasions about reporting fake profiles with the response basically being sorry. You report one profile and 10 more pop up in its place or you see the same profile a few hours later. Some are blatantly fake with pics of porn stars and bios with misspelled words and bot created Snapchat names. Some even go as far as just putting a cashapp in the bio. If that doesn’t scream fake/scammers idk what does. Tinder has become a hub for scammers. For every real profile there are 100 fake ones. Whatever the verification process is obviously doesn’t work. I have many ideas on how to improve it but I think I’m going to just design my own app to compete with the nonsense that is a tinder. Tbh save you time honestly. The time you spend on tinder combing through fake profiles you could be out actually meeting a real person.
I’ve been on and off Tinder for years when I’ve found myself that bored. I’ve met many cool people from the app but I’ve also met my fair share of crazy people from the app. I found that the more people I matched with (and didn’t communicate with) the more likely my account was to be banned. That happened three times, but this last time I actually deactivated my account because I met someone. When that didn’t work out, I returned to the app only to be met with an explanation that my account had been banned citing that I had violated Tinder’s Terms and Conditions. How could it have been banned when it hadn’t even been active? I pointed this out to Tinder support but received an email that they don’t have an appeals process, which is unfortunate. I’m inclined to believe that they don’t actually review reports on accounts to see if they’ve actually violated Terms and Conditions but they instead just go ahead and ban accounts. The integrity of this app is greatly compromised. I would not recommend Tinder to friends.
Tinder aims to keep its users safe, which is respectable and necessary for any dating app.However, they’ve taken it way too far. It’s to the point where other users can get you banned for your political views. I put ACAB in my bio and a week or two later, I was banned. I am not very active on the app so I was quite surprised to learn I was banned, considering I hadn’t been on in a little while. This happened to both me and and my friend, and when we tried to follow up with tinder, they said they do not review cases- meaning we’re both banned for life.
I understand the need for safety on tinder and as a woman who has had bad experiences on the app, I appreciate that they are strict. But being banned for personal views is ridiculous and upsetting. AND the fact that tinder doesn’t review cases is also ridiculous, especially considering it’s SO easy to get banned and they’re a huge company. Do so much better. Genuinely, they’re looking for a lawsuit by banning people for political views.
Don’t get this app if you don’t want to be assaulted and banned for expressing your opinions! I was banned from this app after putting BLM and ACAB in my bio. I thought we lived in America where we had freedom of speech. I didn’t even get a warning. It doesn’t seem fair to me that me expressing my opinions about the rights of a systematically oppressed class led to me getting banned but the man who sexually assaulted me gets to remain on the app. I was upset about it at first, but I realized any app that didn’t support my first amendment rights wasn’t right for me. I am telling everyone who uses this app what happened though and they are getting off of Tinder. I also have friends who are transgender who have banned just for being who they are. I’ve been verbally and physically assaulted by members of the Tinder community, but I was banned for expressing my views. Weird how that works.
Today I was banned without explanation. This was my second try at Tinder. I had deleted my first account late last year after meeting an amazing woman there. We were together for eight of the greatest months of my life before she succumbed to COVID-19 this summer. I’m trying to move on as best I can, but Tinder decided that my journey would be outside of their platform. That’s their right, but it is a blunt display of the costs for “free” platforms like Tinder, and that cost goes beyond the harvesting of your personal information that they sell and trade in the shadows. What I’ve discovered I had actually traded to them was my emotional wellness and self worth. Now it feels more like theft. Please greatly consider what you are giving Tinder in exchange for their app. It may not be worth the cost.
Upgraded to plus because basic had limited amount of likes, then to gold to see my likes. Terrible, the app will overheat your phone or laptop and it freezes and adrubtly closes the app without me doing so. At times, I’m swiping , it’s so slow you can’t see the photos. I was banned and I had no nudity, nothing in my bio, was not harassing anybody , I rarely messaged back the creeps on tinder and maybe the guys felt I was ignoring them they reported my account. Don’t upgrade to gold, you will for sure regret it, a bunch of weirdo , creeps, wanting sex, and app lags 15 times a day. You are swiping to people who you don’t know if they are attractive or not. And once you are banned, they don’t let you appeal it, they have no evidence, it’s someone felt like it. Absolutely ridiculous.
I have had a tinder for a few years now. never found anyone, never treated the girls I matched with distaste, and don’t know of any policy violations I would have done to deserve a ban. I have contacted tinder customer service about why I was banned and they say the same thing every time.. “you have violated our policy and agreements blah blah blah”
Tinder reduces the people you can see at any given time as well!
I have a female friend who I have been close to for over a YEAR (we have been within a mile of eachother for most of that time) and I have never seen her on tinder what so ever!
This app is filled with actual fake accounts constantly trying to scam you and but the feel the need to ban a random guy for being polite to the people he deems attractive...smh
Tinder was working fine up until the past few weeks. Been having issues logging in as my phone hasn’t been receiving any SMS verification lately. Can’t even make a new account if I wanted. Tried so many things too. Deleted and reinstalled numerous times. Shut off my phone. Waited 48 hours twice in case I logged in and out too many times. Emailed Tinder and they emailed me back first but after that haven’t heard back from them. Not sure what the issue could be. I don’t think my phone is blocking number verifications. Tinder got to step up. If anyone working for Tinder is seeing this, please help me fix this problem. Don’t want to lose my profile and matches. Or losing the ability to make a new one. Maybe add email verification instead of only having SMS verification.
