I thought I’d found a good and safe app and it was going pretty well until one guy started showing interest. We started chatting and I wound up with one who I was led to believe was a sincere guy. Only took a week for him to start asking for money. I then looked up the pics he was using (and had forwarded to me) through a facial recognition program and it became quickly obvious that he had stolen someone else’s pics. That person had even put up a Facebook disclaimer that stated “someone” was using his pics and asking for money and was not him! It seems to me at the very least Tinder should have facial recognition software to be verifying submitted profiles before approving. If not I’d highly suggest it. When I ran my facial recognition program, all the pics the guy had given to me were found in seconds and the guy who was chatting with me, the guy who tried to defraud me on Tinder, I had to cut off. Total waste of my time and I was only on Tinder for @2 weeks. I’ll take my lesson here and run facial recognition first next time and I hope someone at Tinder will consider adding this as a standard verification procedure as well!
I had no problems with Tinder for the amount of time I’ve had it downloaded (which has been about a year, maybe two), until recently. I’ve never done anything inappropriate, never said anything inappropriate, my pictures were not inappropriate. Nothing I’ve done in the last two-ish years has warranted a warning, let alone a ban. However, as soon as I decided to purchase Tinder Gold on January 15th, I was banned from the app about three days later. I did absolutely nothing to get banned, I barely even talked to anyone in that timespan, but the conversations I DID have were just pleasantries and small talk. Nothing warranting a ban. I tried to look for something that would let me contact Tinder, but there was nothing. What kind of app doesn’t offer some sort of customer service for things like this? And the “no appeals” thing makes NO sense. People who do nothing wrong and spend money on this app end up getting banned for no reason, and there’s no way for them to contact someone to try and fix it? No thank you. Add appeals and actual customer service OUTSIDE of the app so you stop stealing money from people!!!
I got Gold so you guys didn’t have to waste your money.
I tried it for two weeks, not worth the hype, everything feels the same as if I didn’t have a membership.
I’d blame the people who made this but they are not the only problem, today’s youth is just too incompetent to carry on a meaningful conversation, most of the girls I matched with only texted back once or they all bored me to death with one word replies.
Not only is this app not worth $7.49 (for a month of Gold and that’s the discount I got it for.) or any bit of your hard earned money, but honestly neither are all these girls online who put themselves on these apps.
They lack any personality and I’m just glad I didn’t have to buy any of them a coffee or take them on a date, because with their attitudes and how little of a difference there is in any of them, they might as well pay for the dinner. Sorry not sorry. Step up your game and act like humans and maybe then guys won’t want only nudes from you. Geez, and I’m one of the “nice guys.”
Paid for a membership. Paid for at least another 25$ worth of SLs.(superlikes)No nudity in pics. No vulgar or hateful language in profile or with the ONE match i had. All of a sudden i get banned. No explanation, no refunds. Nothing.
And since im taking the time to write this review, lets add the fact that they take YOUR LIKES/YOUR POSSIBLE MATCHES and put them in a separate file and make you pay to even see them.
On top of the fact they sponsor ppl to be on their site that are physically appealing to influence you to buy super likes. Yes ive met 2 in my area.
Id give zero stars if i could. Thieves.
Customer support is worthless. They dont even bother to respond to the negative reviews. That says enough about them. Trash!!
***update*** learned that what i said about sponsors is true. On top of having thousands of ghost accounts set up mainly to trick you into staying and purchasing upgrades and such. If anyone wants to question me, just google it. Theyve done articles on apps like these.
Tinder you need to fix your entire company. I made an account not even 12 hrs ago and I have already been banned. I did not do anything inappropriate and my account was even “verified” by the company. I had gotten a few matches and sent some messages and when I went to check it this morning I see that I was banned with ZERO explanation as to why. I had purchased the $14.99 subscription and after reading reviews it sounds like tinder is just using it as a cash grab! Don’t waste your money!! Tinder you need to fix your app and your policies!! If someone is following your guidelines and you decide to ban them you should at least tell the person why as well as having some form of appeal process not just an automatic email saying “we aren’t doing appeals at this time”.
I was on the app last night and woke up this morning to it being banned. I have no clue of the reason why and I’ve been on here for almost 2 years. I have never said anything explicitly to anyone and made a lot of new friends on the app. I have been reading a lot of reviews and it seems I am not the only one. I would really like for them to put a phone number on their website so you can contact them. They don’t even take appeals. I really liked this app, but getting banned for no reason has got to stop. I had no problem with the app until this happened. Better yet I even paid for a subscription last month and I canceled it then I get banned.
I was banned from this app for no reason at all. I emailed them hoping they would maybe unban me but I got no where. I had just did what everyone else does you know delete it and then get back on it because of meeting people and I had just logged back into my account and the next day I was banned. I followed all the guidelines and everything and they would not tell me why I was banned. I liked using this app it was better than all the other ones I’ve been on and I really want to get back on it. So please for the love of god give me someone I can talk to or unban me one I did absolutely nothing wrong to be banned
I barely used this app but when I moved to a new city and wanted to meet new people, I paid for the gold to get the full use of this app to meet people quickly. Soon after paying and hardly using the app much yet, my account was banned for no apparent reason. They do not offer an explanation to why you were banned, and there is no customer support line or any kind of representative to talk to. It’s honestly their loss—this app will become buried if they just ban their own users, especially paying ones, and then have no customer support.
I have been having issues with this app for almost two months now. I can not see any messages when I receive them unless I delete the app and then redownload. This makes conversations super hard and I don’t like giving my number out to people. Everything is super delayed and I have to wait for the app to catch up when I’m swiping or typing. It’s super annoying. No one else I know is having this issue. My phone and app are both updated with the most recent update so I don’t know why I am having problems now.
I can’t have this app open running in the background because it causes all my other apps to not respond. Sometimes when I’m swiping, it’ll slow down, freeze & the app quits unexpectedly. I use the distance and age parameters but they don’t work. I’ll sometimes get people outside or my range by like several thousand miles or few miles outside of my choices. Age, same thing I’ll often get users who are younger than I want. Like what’s the point if it doesn’t work? And they just increased the prices lol ok
