It’s come to my attention that not only does tinder not care who they ban and for what reason (which Is normally for no reason at all) but they don’t care about trying to solve their users ban problems AT ALL. They show ZERO interest in addressing the topic of being wrongfully and unknowingly banned AND. IT. SHOWS. There was an individual that had a genuine concern about the passport feature and how it being free effected their matches and left a review that sounded a little like:
“it’s annoying to swipe right on someone that’s 8 miles away one minute, and when you match, they’re miraculously 3000 miles away”
...I agree. The individual also went on to let tinder know that they had been banned and didn’t know why, asking for a reason or for the banned to at least be lifeted. Tinder agreed with and acknowledged the passport thing being an issue and even RESPONDED to the individuals review when corrective action were taken...for the passport issue. Nothing more, nothing less.
Tinder be like:
”Sorry pal. If you’re banned, you’re banned...but hey, thanks helping us fix an actual problem with our app.”
What’s worse is that the app keeps getting these negative reviews just like this one about the SAME. ISSUE. And instead of working with the community to fix it and make it better...they ignore it. Plan and simple. I don’t think I read any other reviews that mention being banned that had any type of response from the creators. Which is sad because these are all paying customers and tinder is willingly choosing to ignore them...which means they’re willingly choosing to ignore money thats already been promised to them because I imagine if these same people that are all banned, could get unbanned. They would go back to using the app like nothing happened. But what do I know? I’m just some single guy who concerns got ignored.
I’ve been on Tinder for 3 years! I had no problems. Today, I matched with a guy who I had met previously on another app. He was rude and condescending. Today we matched on Tinder. We did not talk but a few hours later I was banned! I can only assume this individual revenge reported me. Apparently him being rude and hurtful wasn’t bad enough.
I contacted Tinder, but just got an automated email saying there was nothing I could do and I violated the terms of service. I then got a “survey” where I said that I did not break any rules and I just received a generic email. They said they were sorry and will try again next time but there will not be a next time.
Apparently, it is okay for others to be rude, threaten, and harass me. But I reject the wrong person and I get banned. Not okay!
Those debating to download or not, do not download! I’m sure it is true with most dating apps, but they do not care about you! They do not truly look into situations. They can rarely admit they are wrong. But oh well, one day maybe people will realize that these apps are a scam and offer favor the “bad” person for whatever reason.
Tinder, you need to reconsider your policies! If it is okay for someone to harass, threaten, etc. other people, then we should be allowed to defend ourselves and/or reject someone without being afraid of a ban! Also, get real people to email us and do not send a generic email. At least act like you care.
I’ve been using tinder off and on. I think tinder is a waste of time and money for average looking guys. The only benefit to tinder is that you can be seen but if your not flawless your chances for a match is very slim. You’re very limited to show off your personality and game changing characteristics that might sway a women to match with you. If your hairline is on point, fit, over 6’0 and look like brad Pitt you’ll get your matches. anything less then that these women will swipe left and you can’t blame them. It is unfair to the average looking guy. Your best bet is to get matched with girls waayyyyy under your league. This app is all based on looks. I’m not a fan of this app at all. I’ve spent too much money and time just yo come up empty but i keep coming back in hopes that it would change. I tried plenty of angles, pictures, bios, tinder platinum., boosts. I have this app a solid chance and Im left with depression lol This app needs to have a live chat portion for both text and video. Or some way for us guys yo get our foot in the door in a fun and easy way for both parties. People pay for platinum because they have no results and are hoping for a change. Platinum offers NOTHING for an advantage. Just more of the same while draining your bank account
Trash app. Terrible support. The app is so buggy and messed up. You have to pay to see who likes you and all this crap. It’s definitely a cash grab. The app claims there’s people in your area and that you need to “boost” your profile to get in touch with them! If you don’t boost your profile I guess the developers or whoever created this scam, won’t let you truly see who’s in your area or what not. You can pay to have/send read receipts and all sorts of money making schemes. Complete bull if you ask me. And it’s not cheap either. Especially for an app that is supposed to help you find a relationship. So sad 😞. Most of the time the app matches you with complete bots who are scammers and send you a WhatsApp link 🤡. And when you do match with someone you end up being like 1000 miles away from that match so what was the point really? Sad to see this is what it’s come to just to squeeze money out of people pockets. SMH go out and live life the way you want and meet people the right way don’t waste your money on these scam apps please 🤞.
Tinder is another tech company with low overhead and a bunch of software engineers who fail to provide a true mutually beneficial experience. Who doesn’t have an appeal process for bans that were caused because of YOUR APPS inability to deal with lower storage / older phones.
Prior to me being banned the app would overheat my phones processor and legitimately make the metal hot to the touch. This inability to streamline your app really shows by your marketing team being smarter than your software engineers.
Finally when the discovery feature continued searching for a couple days I was met with a “You are banned” screen. When I email for a reason your customer service team loves to show off their copy and paste skills with a regurgitation of the “we don’t review bans because we are too lazy and focused on making young adults and teenagers self consciously addicted to validation from an app”
Listen I am just trying to meet people and you provide a DECENTLY effective wait to do that. Do better tinder - Its really not hard

I live in the middle of the Mohave desert. With that being said, a common hobby of its residence is going to shooting ranges. Off roading and camping is also a common activity, but tinder threatened me when I posted pictures of me at the range saying they would ban my account due to some kind of violation of the above excerpt. Wildly disappointed with the wildly sensitive approach to someone’s hobby that is not aligned with the hobbies of a city person. It’s just pathetic.
It would appear I have fallen in this category and not knowing it till signs started popping up. I have used tinder for years and have always had very good luck but noticed a significant amount of profiles and matches not occurring, indicating I’ve been shadow banned. I googled it to learn more and it is ridiculous that is allowed. I use premium services and that should yield
More matches; platinum, boosts and super likes and it does nothing. This is a scam warranted reporting to the Better Business Bureau . If I am shadow banned, I should be notified prior to purchasing premium services so I have a choice to spend that money knowing I will be limited to no results or value from money spent but I at least had a choice knowing I was banned. I hope someone on the App sees these reviews and takes this serious and what legal ramifications can come of it with today’s scrutinization of technological business dealings.
I’ve used this app on and off depending how Lonely I was feeling. When I used it I almost never got any matches, I’m not going to pretend I’m the most desirable person but still. But when I did receive matches I also never received even fewer messages. Again it could just be me. But the app keeps pushing the pay options and it seemed no matter how hard I tried it never worked. I’m not out of confidence to think it’s all me. Based on some friends of mine who used this app they had similar experiences with this app. Perhaps it’s because we never put money into the app, but the few matches we did receive again either never responded or suddenly went dark mid conversation.
If it wasn’t for the fact, this is how our society meets people anymore, I wouldn’t be trying nearly as hard to make it work.
I’ve done everything I could think of to stop these “bugs”. I have a tendency of deleting the app to begin with, but 80 times in one day to just read messages is stupid.
I checked the update history, and lately there’s been bugs, forcing an update nearly every day or every week. You’d think by now, an app that’s been established since 2013, would have figured out the fundamentals of their app.
This also happens EVERYTIME I redownload the app, where it’s giving me problems back and forth.
I was divorced after 10 years of marriage and had a blast on here. Until my little trip to utah. Apparently they think this app is for finding a wife. That and the ghb my tinder date had shared led me to send some thirsty messages. Which led to a six month band. I was excited to get it back but used the app to find a third for my partner at the time. Which violates the terms and conditions. Please lift my band and I promise to be on my best Tinder behavior. You are seriously my favorite dating app! Nothing else will do. Please Tinder let me back on and we can talk about that two star to a five start review!
