So it’s been a long time since I’ve used this app and let me elaborate on why you should save your money. Ok first things first, the people that created this app have found many ways to exploit its members. It’s understandable that you would have limited swipes if you download the app for free well not much changes when you upgrade to tinder plus other than you paying $10 to be matched with girls thousands of miles away. The creators of this app have decided that they will hide all your matches behind tinder gold even when a tinder plus member you cannot access any of your matches unless you upgrade to tinder gold which is another $20 so now your grand total is $30 for this god awful app that mostly matches you with girls named Lexi that write that they don’t usually message and that you can find them on snap chat and that they don’t come on tinder much. On top of all of that you have so many fake pages and countless girls telling you to Venmo them if you’re feeling generous! I’m still wondering how many of these profiles are added by the creators to make it seem like girls are interested in you when in all actuality they only have 1 picture and 99.999999 of the time they will not respond because they’re fake as F. So if you want to spend $10 to swipe as much as you want you will find that you will never see the girls that actually liked you because of there BS tinder gold and when you run out of swipes because there are no more girls that pop up near you and you expand the distance you are willing to find these girls you will figure out real quick that you will not match with any of the girls that liked you because a big skeem of there’s is to squeeze as much money out of you to find someone even remotely close to what you’re attracted too. So read this and beware, I understand trying to make money as an app creator but to this extent is highway robbery and you guys should be ashamed. You’re better off not paying for the app and taking a gamble on meeting the very small amount of real girls on here than to pay for any of the upgrades!
TL;DR: banned for being gender-fluid, labeled as for 'being underage' (which I'm not).
A few days before my 21st birthday I got banned for 'being underage', which I found out through trying to sign in on the website. The app is supposed to be 18+. I signed up a few months after my 18th birthday and suddenly was banned for being underage a few years later? I contacted their customer support twice and got a copy-pasted response both times:
We take violations of our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines very seriously. Please note that we do not have an appeals process at this time, therefore your account will remain banned from Tinder. You will not be able to create a new Tinder profile using your Facebook account and/or phone number."
After doing some research I found this was common for non-binary folks. Trolls and transphobic people routinely falsely report us on the app, particularly those who we reject. Tinder sees enough reports on a person and bans them, despite the fact that they haven't done anything against the terms of service or community guidelines. When we contact customer support, they hit us with the above message, disregarding us and insinuating that we had somehow violated these guidelines. I've never even done so much as to say anything even remotely rude to a person (though I've received some nasty comments, including threats, which I politely either said no thanks or ignored and then unmatched). My photos have all always been completely decent, with only me, fully clothed, in the frame--granted a couple with lipstick and make up on my otherwise masc face. Honestly, with the frequency that this happens, I'm just waiting for them to get sued into the ground.
A while back, I purchased a one-month subscription of tinder gold, and it was gone when that month ended- I was notified that my subscription had expired. I recently got a new credit card, and updated my info in Apple. Even though my initial purchase was done, Tinder automatically charged me again for another month of Tinder gold- $15. Tinder also makes it difficult to unsubscribe from Tinder plus/tinder gold. In the past I have been charged for several months even though I unsubscribed and tried to contact customer service many times (they didn't respond). Deleting your tinder account will not stop the charges either. Definitely don't suggest buying plus or gold- found out that some of the things it claims to do don't actually work (ex. I purchased to have the option where only those you swipe right on can see you. I had this setting on, but noticed even though I hadn't swiped right on anyone, I was still getting right swipes as shown by a number. This meant either the right swipes count was wrong, or people were still seeing my profile even though they shouldn't be. Either way not worth the money at all)
I’ve been using this app on an off for a little over 5 years. I really enjoyed it to meet some decent human beings out there, really enjoy the process of matching & all the paid features— which I was subscribed to.
Suddenly, I log on to find a message that My account had been banned due to terms & conditions violations, which— you know, sometimes happens by error
I went to their website to find out the appeal process for that finding that there is NO WAY I could recover my acct. I work in the moderating field of social media & apps, & I understand how things work, it’s either human error or machine error, & we take pride of fixing those issues if we ever ban content by accident, but it is TRULLY disappointing to find an app— that you are paying for ( ! ) ban you for no apprentice reason & ON TOP OF THAT, does not give you a solution to fix it. Enjoy my $14.99, & shove them wherever you want to. :)
I can honestly say I I’m not off violating Tinder’s policies. No obscene photos or soliciting or cat fishing or anything they tell you not to do. Even so I was suddenly banned without warning or explanation. When I did a little Google research I found that Tinder makes it a habit of doing this to tons of people and they offer zero appeals process for anyone they kick off. Someone I dated admitted to reporting false accusations against me when they were blocking me and it was immediately following this admission by him that I was banned. So apparently anyone can slander you at any moment and Tinder will automatically choose to believe them without bothering to ask you about it first. This practice just makes no sense to begin with. But especially when applying it to a dating app where people probably lash out all the time just because of hurt feelings over rejection.
Honestly you need to PUT UPDATES OUT FOR THIS APP ASAP!!!!
Plus you should be liking out for people that actually put money into your business if I’m buying Gold & Super Boost & not receiving what I paid for I should look into account to fix it or figure how to or get refund ...
I bought Tinder Gold and than a super boost to give Tinder a try and now it’s saying ZERO. So basically I just wasted my money and also nothing it’s like lagging or frozen I don’t understand. Please help me or refund my money thank you !!!
I literally just figured out what’s wrong is the Verification Email Process is when the bugs start happening... I literally just made a new one and I’m at the same problem .... AGAIN !!
I live in a major city and the app tells me there are no matches. Thankfully I did not pay for the “plus” service, because I am unable to delete my account. I am not the only one. Google this issue and read the sob stories of those who are being charged monthly for a service they cannot use. Tinder also makes it ridiculously hard to find a link to submit a support ticket. But they do give a number for submitting issues via fax . Really. I feel like I tried this service years ago without any issues, and clearly it does work for lots of people. But if it doesn’t work for you, prepare to be frustrated.
If my phone closes, or I switch to a different app to message someone back, and then return to tinder it freezes then closes the app. After that I have to go back to the loading screen (which takes absurdly long at this point) while it restarts. I almost forgave all this up until today, as now I can’t even open the app. Once it shows that it’s loading, it closes itself. When I first got the app a lil over a year ago, it worked fine. But recently it’s not even worth it to go through all that just to MAYBE find a decent person to talk to.
I’ve had Tinder on and off for a few years and it’s been alright. I’m still friends with some of the ones I matched with years ago, and I’ve had successful dates/hookups. The app itself functions well...WHEN it functions at all. My problem with it is that there have always been CONSTANT bugs. To the point of having to delete it completely and make a new account on more than one occasion. And even on a use-to-use basis, there are things about the app that are just glitchy and garbage.
Made a bunch of great friends on here! People from all over the country and people that had just moved here from other countries! I wanted to date outside my race and thanks to this app I had that experience! I ended up having a long term relationship with someone but make sure you get to know them longer especially in person before dating! Unfortunately, we are no longer together but I’m glad to have experienced something I wasn’t comfortable with in the beginning!
