  • Great app hypocritical reporting and banning process Jul 20, 2021

    Howzit gonna be that women on this app can literally solicit their pornography. But when a guys says a perverted pick up line they can be banned permanently. Along with that if you report somebody for spam don’t you think that that should just be an immediate match delete rather than a ban that’s pretty simple to do. Look I might sound like a neck bearded simp but at least I gave the app a try. I had over 46 matches in the first week which is in my opinion alright but I had over 50 likes that I never got to see. I might have left some people high and dry but I’m pretty sure if I actually had the time to go out on a date I’d ask but I run a business and people spending their day on this app need to get out meet someone naturally. Which imma do because I was literally in the process of deleting my account before I was permanently banned which is ironic because what if I wanna get back on after a break up. That’s insensitivity on the app and it’s users part along with customer service. If you only send an automated message and have robotic response to issues I’m pretty sure people aren’t going to be generally pleased by the results.

    Let me preface this by saying I’ve used a large amount of dating apps such as OKCupid, Plenty of Fish, Hinge, Meetme, and etc. over the span of 8 years but Tinder is probably the go to app; it’s fast, easy and pretty much condenses all that I want from most other apps into a simpler format. However, with this app being infamous for mainly hookups or casual encounters, the pickings for someone more substantial (platonic or romantic) is slim to say the least. As well, like in other apps, the amount of empty profiles or spam accounts overwhelms the amount of real people. I do wish that there was a sort of requirement of word count in each profile so that if someone IS serious about matching, they have a (somewhat) cohesive bio to show this. While I’ll always enjoy the interface and the simplicity of Tinder and don’t personally see myself off the app anytime soon (especially given the time I’m writing this) I do wish there were a more comprehensive way to weed out the casual from serious or the hookups from genuine friendships WITHOUT having to download yet another app.
  • Im banned :( Sep 9, 2021

    So I’d like to think im pretty good about following guidelines. Now I understand that this is my fault, but I jokingly told a guy I was 15. I planned to tell the guy the truth, but I went to sleep with no response to the message. The next day I get on and I am banned! I tried to contact tinder to explain that I was in fact a legal adult, and even sent a front and back photo i.d. But, it was too late, and they had told me that I would stay banned from the app permanently. I wish tinder would lock your account to verify age and identity, instead of completely banning you. Many of my friends have been banned off tinder for reasons they aren’t even sure of. I am certain that there was no other reason for my ban, and I really enjoy tinder and the concept of the app. It is really upsetting. Im not trying to warn people off the app, or trying to get myself unbanned. But im just mostly trying to maybe propose that you guys give warnings, or second chances for people that are being banned for identity or age concerns. I really don’t think I actually committed any violations.
  • Trouble Unsubscribing Aug 28, 2020

I try to look for a link to customer support and there is literally no way to contact support unless you call them. Are you serious? Make it easier to unsubscribe for the sake of everything fair! I’m still stuck trying to figure out how the hell to unsubscribe before I get charged on my card again. It’s ridiculous how the developers remove the payment option on the app. In all fairness, the app is decent and you can find people to meet if you really put the effort into it.

  • It’s alright Sep 15, 2020

    By Joshua Helm
    Given the benefit of the doubt the app does seemingly have a lot of issues but overall it’s not the WORST experience possible. I think one of the biggest issues is the various prices for Tinder gold. Now they want to charge me $45/mo (I’m 19) whereas they want to charge my friend (keep in mind who is also 19) $15/mo. I’m not too sure what’s with the price discrepancy but I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s experienced this. $15 seems reasonable but $45 a month? Definitely won’t be happening. As for the user base, you find a LOT of bots but thats to be expected you can find a numerous amount of bots on seemingly any “dating app” that’s just how it is. So I won’t mark off too many points for that but another issue is the lack of finding people who like you. I could swipe right on everyone like a mad man (which I don’t WANT TO DO) and still not find a single person who liked me (which it’s not like I have 0 likes I have a good bit) I know this is probably a ploy for me to get the tinder gold but then we go back to the $45/mo issue.
  • It’s tinder May 8, 2021

    By Ohthatsnate100
    What up bros so I tell you what whenever I download tinder I didn’t have any beliefs of finding someone attractive and till this day I still don’t. Put it like this I’m not a unattractive sack of meat. I’m much above the average Justin so after about a year or 5 of using it I decided screw it since the cost has gone down dramatically for unlimited swipes I might as well pay $15 for 6 months. Now once I did this it completely opened up a whole mother category’s of girls. All of a sudden I was matching with girls that are 5k-8k miles away and it’s my understanding that I need to get on a boat just to reach them. Now I was allowed to swipe as many times as I would like so I did take advantage of that to its fullest. Put it like this would I pay again? Depends on how thirsty I am and if there is another pandemic that makes all girls scared to talk to people. But since the girls at the gym don’t appreciate the conversations he’ll yeah I would unless the price becomes like bumble then he’ll no
  • Oct 10, 2021

    By Lauren Caouette
    Nearly unusable now. No matter how many times you swipe left, people don't go away. Spotify won't go away from profile and you can't choose what's shown. Distance selected doesn't matter anymore, get people from thousands of miles away. People suck now. Oh and conversation is non existent now. Your list of matches is basically useless in it's new format, no one is going back and looking at em because it's pretty impossible.
  • Frustrating bugs May 20, 2021

    By Sillyhumins
    This app is the most frustrating thing, Since downloading this app I have had 5 of the matches I had been talking to regularly completely disappear without reason, I figured I had been unmatched only for them to reappear in my matches days or even weeks later, and the entire conversation erased (for me, not for them). For 2 people who I had contacted everything looked normal on their end, except I had no other way to contact them. Is is super frustrating when you don’t have a way to reach other person due to a bug!! It also sends the totally wrong message and causes a lot of confusion. I’ve had this happen to me mid conversation as well. This is so unacceptable. It’s hard to tell if Tinder is negligently buggy or if this is the result of some gross social engineering experiment, I have no clue, but c’mon at this point it’s happened too frequently not to question the motives of a company that profits off you being single. If you think I’m going to pony up for a company that might be willfully making it difficult to get in touch with people you genuinely hit it off with or seed doubts about someone you are getting to know better, you are mistaken. I will not be renewing anything. **UPDATE** As expected my match shows up again days later with the conversation deleted from my phone but I can view it on my computer. Fix this!!! This is so wrong, what a sad excuse for a messaging platform. Totally wholly incredibly unacceptable. Straight up.

    By Stuart Aitken
    Might seem petty but the fact that the gallery upload option for adding profile pictures just gives you a massive list of ALL images on your phone is just ridiculous. Let me navigate to the correct folder instead of having to scroll through literally thousands of irrelevant photos. Most apps have this option. For Tinder to not have it is just absurd. Terrible design decision, I cannot comprehend how or why someone allowed it to be this way.
  • Ban for no reason forever Mar 4, 2021

    By luckybeard13
    So I’ve been using Tinder on and of for few years, and after some break I decided to download it again. Since it’s been a while I decided to start fresh and create a new account. Big mistake! So you can delete your profile and Tinder even suggest you as one of the options why you deleting is “fresh start”, it only warns you that you will lose your matches and messages which is of course fine. No warning that you can be banned for life for doing that. So I delete my profile and immediately create a new one. I upload my pictures, so verifications and stuff. I sign up for a paid membership and spend money on boosts only to find out I get absolutely no likes in few days, so I google it to find out I am probably banned for re-creating my account. Again, no sings of it in the app, besides no matches. I am trying to reach support but it’s nowhere to be found, only on Reddit I find a link to a web contact form. So I message and get a generic robot response that my account was banned and there is no way to appeal. They refuse to give me any details of what rule I violated, I couldn’t find it in terms of use or community guide lines. When you using the app you see tons of fake and spam profiles they fail to ban yet they ban real people for no reason and decline any support to fix the situation. I never experiences before company treating their paid customer like that, it felt awful. Tinder, please give your customers some respect.

    By Strive Indigo
    Awful and buggy. Doesn't work 90% of the time and when it does you get matched with sex bots who unlike you after the first message. If you're upset that you can't find your matches, don't worry, those likes on your profile will vanish the moment you pay for premium access anyways. MTX ruined this app and then the greedy devs took away the ability to send Super Likes. Spotify integration is glitched and can't be personalized to your exact specifications. Notifications are broken as well.
  • App doesn’t function as advertised, full of bots/spam. Apr 5, 2021

    By Jambake
    The app allows you to set filters for age and distance, then completely disregards them. I am in my mid 20’s, and want to meet other people in their 20’s. I have my age limit set from 21-27, yet every other profile I see is for a 19 year old, 18 year old, or 30 year old. Additionally, I have my distance set to <30 miles, and have turned the “global” setting off (because if I’m looking to actually meet up, why would I want to match with someone 6,000 miles away?) and STILL, just about every other person is outside my distance radius. I live in a very populated city area, I know there are more people within 30 miles of me but tinder has decided I don’t want what I say I want, instead I apparently want what they want me to see. I used to pay for the app, but never again unless some serious quality improvements are made. Showing me people outside my radius doesn’t make me more likely to use tinder, it makes me think tinder is broken. Same goes for the age thing. I have also reported easily over 100 bots/spam accounts and it still is a huge issue - a liiitle bit more verification or something would be great. As it stands, bumble and hinge are much better services. Bumble is getting greedy, locking formerly free features behind a paywall, and Hinge doesn’t have as many users as Tinder or Bumble, but as far as the experience goes? The other two are much better than Tinder.

    By Matthew Smyth
    Extremely disappointing. It's very limited to what you can do without updating to the paid version. Most of the time it says there are no potential matches in your area and suggest you go global which shows people thousands of miles away. What the point in that ? Really sucks that you have to be a paid member to see who's liked you. Lots of members are only out to see how many matches they can get and have no intention in even having a conversation with you .
  • The Biggest Scam Jul 1, 2021

    By justkeepinitreal.35
    So here's the thing. Everyone knows that Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps today. Almost everybody I know uses it and it's crazy to deny the success of the app. HOWEVER, i will point out the biggest scam that this app does. Profiles are banned without any justifiable reason and when the people try to find out, they get a simple message saying that they just "violated the Terms of Use or Community Guidelines". (They don't even give a specific reason why, it's JUST THAT !!) The automated message is the same for everyone who is banned which means that no one is really running the customer support other than a machine. This app doesn't offer appeals to people who've been wrongfully banned which just means that the development team is too lazy to actually help someone bring their account back up. They up prices for the memberships and they barely do anything for you. Also, you don't get your money back if you get Tinder Gold and are banned permanently. This app can be so much better than what it is if the devs actually took the time to critically read these reviews from everyday people. Let us appeal to get our accounts back, have a better customer support system where we can talk to an ACTUAL person instead of an automated message, AND STOP INCREASING THE PRICES OF YOUR MEMBERSHIPS. You have millions of dollars from the people who use your app. Why don't you take that money and better the experience for consumers.
  • Oct 10, 2021

    By Ringed Python
    Not impressed with service at all! It's driven to make you pay. What I found is if you can see and possibly chat with a profile it's probably a system profile designed to get you to pay. I paid for a 1 month subscription, all it gave me was the ability to like more profiles I'm not able to contact unless I pay. Will probably delete my account, it serves no purpose.
  • Banned for no reason... Mar 6, 2021

    By Ghosted by Tinder
    I’ve used the app almost since the app first was created, and it has led to some decent dates and friendships along the way. I truly enjoyed the app (not so much the “match-and-silence/ignore” trend, but that falls on the user, not the app). I’ve posted rather silly pictures of my self fully clothed. I’ve never harassed anyone or pursued anyone beyond a clear ignoring of a message or unmatch. Not was my profile spam or fake in any way. I was instructed by the generic automated email when I reached out and all I was told is that I “violated the user agreement or terms of use” or something along those lines. When I checked those terms, there was not one thing that could be remotely close to any term that I’ve broken that I’ve done in the years of using the app. And when I replied back with elaboration, there was, of course, no response. They also stopped allowing appeals, so now I’m unable to get back on the app. There are other apps, I know. But this just doesn’t sit right with me - someone who uses the app only for it’s intended purpose and is not life banned for the app for no apparent reason, given no explanation, and no opportunity to fix it. This app was in the end a waste of my time and money (oh yeah, I subscribed multiple times to their advanced features to see who swiped on me because why not?) Beware any newcomer to this app that this is a fairly common issue on getting banned for no reason! Enjoy it whilst you can...

When I DO get notifications in my Notification Center, they never stack, so tinder notifications take up my whole screen. SOOO annoying. I like this app and I know it can be better, that’s why I’m being critical. Great work, but I hate the fact that my favorite dating app can be so frustrating.

    Given the benefit of the doubt the app does seemingly have a lot of issues but overall it’s not the WORST experience possible. I think one of the biggest issues is the various prices for Tinder gold. Now they want to charge me $45/mo (I’m 19) whereas they want to charge my friend (keep in mind who is also 19) $15/mo. I’m not too sure what’s with the price discrepancy but I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s experienced this. $15 seems reasonable but $45 a month? Definitely won’t be happening. As for the user base, you find a LOT of bots but thats to be expected you can find a numerous amount of bots on seemingly any “dating app” that’s just how it is. So I won’t mark off too many points for that but another issue is the lack of finding people who like you. I could swipe right on everyone like a mad man (which I don’t WANT TO DO) and still not find a single person who liked me (which it’s not like I have 0 likes I have a good bit) I know this is probably a ploy for me to get the tinder gold but then we go back to the $45/mo issue.
  • It’s tinder May 8, 2021

    By Ohthatsnate100
    What up bros so I tell you what whenever I download tinder I didn’t have any beliefs of finding someone attractive and till this day I still don’t. Put it like this I’m not a unattractive sack of meat. I’m much above the average Justin so after about a year or 5 of using it I decided screw it since the cost has gone down dramatically for unlimited swipes I might as well pay $15 for 6 months. Now once I did this it completely opened up a whole mother category’s of girls. All of a sudden I was matching with girls that are 5k-8k miles away and it’s my understanding that I need to get on a boat just to reach them. Now I was allowed to swipe as many times as I would like so I did take advantage of that to its fullest. Put it like this would I pay again? Depends on how thirsty I am and if there is another pandemic that makes all girls scared to talk to people. But since the girls at the gym don’t appreciate the conversations he’ll yeah I would unless the price becomes like bumble then he’ll no

    Extremely disappointing. It's very limited to what you can do without updating to the paid version. Most of the time it says there are no potential matches in your area and suggest you go global which shows people thousands of miles away. What the point in that ? Really sucks that you have to be a paid member to see who's liked you. Lots of members are only out to see how many matches they can get and have no intention in even having a conversation with you .

    Not impressed with service at all! It's driven to make you pay. What I found is if you can see and possibly chat with a profile it's probably a system profile designed to get you to pay. I paid for a 1 month subscription, all it gave me was the ability to like more profiles I'm not able to contact unless I pay. Will probably delete my account, it serves no purpose.

    By Varian Bohling
    I've used Tinder off and on over the years. I think instead of modifying the platform so people can have a vaccination sticker they should focus on the (conservative estimate) 15-30% obvious and not so obvious fake profiles. Why is the "verified" picture function not mandatory and part of the setup process? It won't be a silver bullet, but it's a start. Tinder really wants you to pay (ya know capitalism), at $30 a month it's insane with the above issues. Eye on the ball people.
  • Oh boy Jun 22, 2021

    By FazzieATX
    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. Tinder has really slipped. What used to be a brilliantly simple and effective dating app has turned into a frustrating, convoluted, pay-walled mess. For Tinder to be even remotely 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 does that for free. Wanna leave a comment on someone’s picture? Surely you can do that with the Gold membership, right? Nope. Gotta shell out even more money 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 week, and you’re still hounded with pop ups every 10 minutes to try out their creepiest feature - the super like. All of this on top of the inherent dating app negatives (ghosting, catfishing, creeps, excessive filters, etc) and you’re in for a miserable ride. Save yourself the stress and money and try 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 good buzz.

    That app used to be ok but now it's just trash. You like maybe 20 or so people and then it locks you out for 12 hrs. Not to mention it will only show you that people like you but unless you pay money those people will never pop up for you to swipe on. It's just not a good experience anymore. Plenty of other apps you can use that will allow you to like as many times as you want without locking you out. Tinder isn't worth it anymore
  • Super glitchy Jan 3, 2021

    By lilbennay
    I have had this app for years now. In the past year or two, it has become very glitchy. It takes forever to load conversations that I am trying to have real time, when opening the app via notification, it makes it even slower, it freezes from time to time forcing me to close the app and try again, the keyboard glitches out, and more. It makes trying to have a continuous conversation very hard. On top of that, a recent update with the option to allow video calls has made conversation hard. After a couple back and forth messages, a pop up will appear at the bottom of the screen, covering about 1/3 of the screen. It asks if you are fine with video calls with that specific person. I like that it seeks consent. The only way to get rid of the giant pop up is agreeing or disagreeing. When you open the keyboard with the pop up still there, it just moves up, covering your conversation. I used to like the app. But in the past year or so, it has gone downhill. The only reason I keep it is because it is the most commonly used app, meaning more chances of swiping. Otherwise, it’s not worth a lot of the effort the app forces on you.
  • You aren’t getting what you paid for! Dec 14, 2020

    By Jarv960
    Not sure why I’m paying for a service when you’re constantly being asked to pay to access new features. Without question, every time you log in the first swipe you are prompted with a message that says “upgrade your swipe with a super swipe” STOP TRYING TO GET ME TO WASTE MY RESERVES ON SOMEONE THATS POSSIBLY A FAKE ACCOUNT. Along with that just about every account here is a bot (sending links, or telling you to go to a website for premium content). I deleted my account restored my purchase and the same thing occurs. Im only matching with fake accounts. Continuing, what’s with the demographics of this app? There is no diversity? 90% of the profiles does not reflect the city I live in and this city has a melting pot of people, WHERE ARE THEY? Although I have the “Global” feature turned off, why I am I seeing accounts from 3k+ miles away If I have that feature turned on, it should be applied for people also using the passport feature, the same way you lock out accounts for the Gold and Platinum features.I understand you gotta make money so you allow this to continue but leave that crap to the non paying accounts!
  • They never fix ANYTHING Jun 7, 2021

    By I Gotta iPhone
    I’ve had the app for about 4 years now through college, and it’s been buggy since the first day i downloaded it. Will constantly crash, and it doesn’t seem they ever fix it. Currently i get profiles that say they’ve super liked me, but then after a right swipe, no match. This is just the beginning of the never ending bug cycle. But don’t worry about the bugs, they’ve already hatched up their new and improved membership plans! 🙄 Also good luck getting matches because, like I said the app never works properly. I’ve had a couple of successful meetups from the app, but they come in spurts. App is filled with mostly bot profiles and females who are “just looking for friends” or promoting IG and use Tinder as a power trip or confidence booster instead of its intended purposes. Also I’ve tested a theory a few times, and Tinder is just extremely inconsistent with its algorithm. One time I can have over 100 matches in a few months, and another time I’ll struggle to get 5 matches. Sadly still probably the best dating app there is, which is why I gave 2 stars instead of 1, but you’d think in 2021 we could do better.
  • Shadow bans Nov 15, 2020

    By Elijah219
    Tinder used to be amazing. When I first started using tinder, I’d wake up to dozens of matches a day. In my first week I’d have easily over a hundred matches and countless conversations with some pretty cool people. I made lots of new connections whether online or in person. But idk what’s happened over the last year or so. After the last couple times I’ve downloaded, I get almost no matches. It will say I have 100+ people who swiped on me but will literally get no more than 2-3 matches a week. My messages don’t go through, and matches randomly disappear during a good conversation. It’s extremely frustrating and the app is definitely playing people. Even the secret admirer function tells me to pick one of 4 cards that swiped on me... but when I pick one it says better luck next time. Every single time... there’s so many better apps out there that don’t do this. One starts with a B and another with an H. I’d highly suggest trying those out and deleting this useless app. This review would get one star except for the fact that tinder used to be good and I would’ve gave it 4-5 stars a couple years ago.
  • Banned when they didn’t help me appropriately Nov 1, 2020

    By none Ya17
    When I contacted tinder intially in regards to being unable to access my account due to me getting a new phone number. Everytime I went through the reset steps it returned back to me having to access my phone number I previously had. Remind you this has happened before where I had my number changed and they were able to resolve my problem before. This time after telling me to use the other step instead of verifying through my number which I did. Which failed because it still circulated me back to the step of verifying through my old number. Tinder support then send me a email that I’m banned! This is upsetting after tinder support failed me twice in assisting me with this matter. This is legit reason they can be sued for. In regards to being banned and then violating their own terms and agreement. After giving me the wrong solution to my initial problem. All that was mention was that I violated terms and agreement. I read it all and I have not violated anything after using tinder in and out over the years.

    Nearly unusable now. No matter how many times you swipe left, people don't go away. Spotify won't go away from profile and you can't choose what's shown. Distance selected doesn't matter anymore, get people from thousands of miles away. People suck now. Oh and conversation is non existent now. Your list of matches is basically useless in it's new format, no one is going back and looking at em because it's pretty impossible.
  • Frustrating bugs May 20, 2021

    By Sillyhumins
    This app is the most frustrating thing, Since downloading this app I have had 5 of the matches I had been talking to regularly completely disappear without reason, I figured I had been unmatched only for them to reappear in my matches days or even weeks later, and the entire conversation erased (for me, not for them). For 2 people who I had contacted everything looked normal on their end, except I had no other way to contact them. Is is super frustrating when you don’t have a way to reach other person due to a bug!! It also sends the totally wrong message and causes a lot of confusion. I’ve had this happen to me mid conversation as well. This is so unacceptable. It’s hard to tell if Tinder is negligently buggy or if this is the result of some gross social engineering experiment, I have no clue, but c’mon at this point it’s happened too frequently not to question the motives of a company that profits off you being single. If you think I’m going to pony up for a company that might be willfully making it difficult to get in touch with people you genuinely hit it off with or seed doubts about someone you are getting to know better, you are mistaken. I will not be renewing anything. **UPDATE** As expected my match shows up again days later with the conversation deleted from my phone but I can view it on my computer. Fix this!!! This is so wrong, what a sad excuse for a messaging platform. Totally wholly incredibly unacceptable. Straight up.

    Might seem petty but the fact that the gallery upload option for adding profile pictures just gives you a massive list of ALL images on your phone is just ridiculous. Let me navigate to the correct folder instead of having to scroll through literally thousands of irrelevant photos. Most apps have this option. For Tinder to not have it is just absurd. Terrible design decision, I cannot comprehend how or why someone allowed it to be this way.
  • Ban for no reason forever Mar 4, 2021

    By luckybeard13
    So I’ve been using Tinder on and of for few years, and after some break I decided to download it again. Since it’s been a while I decided to start fresh and create a new account. Big mistake! So you can delete your profile and Tinder even suggest you as one of the options why you deleting is “fresh start”, it only warns you that you will lose your matches and messages which is of course fine. No warning that you can be banned for life for doing that. So I delete my profile and immediately create a new one. I upload my pictures, so verifications and stuff. I sign up for a paid membership and spend money on boosts only to find out I get absolutely no likes in few days, so I google it to find out I am probably banned for re-creating my account. Again, no sings of it in the app, besides no matches. I am trying to reach support but it’s nowhere to be found, only on Reddit I find a link to a web contact form. So I message and get a generic robot response that my account was banned and there is no way to appeal. They refuse to give me any details of what rule I violated, I couldn’t find it in terms of use or community guide lines. When you using the app you see tons of fake and spam profiles they fail to ban yet they ban real people for no reason and decline any support to fix the situation. I never experiences before company treating their paid customer like that, it felt awful. Tinder, please give your customers some respect.

    Awful and buggy. Doesn't work 90% of the time and when it does you get matched with sex bots who unlike you after the first message. If you're upset that you can't find your matches, don't worry, those likes on your profile will vanish the moment you pay for premium access anyways. MTX ruined this app and then the greedy devs took away the ability to send Super Likes. Spotify integration is glitched and can't be personalized to your exact specifications. Notifications are broken as well.
  • App doesn’t function as advertised, full of bots/spam. Apr 5, 2021

    By Jambake
    The app allows you to set filters for age and distance, then completely disregards them. I am in my mid 20’s, and want to meet other people in their 20’s. I have my age limit set from 21-27, yet every other profile I see is for a 19 year old, 18 year old, or 30 year old. Additionally, I have my distance set to <30 miles, and have turned the “global” setting off (because if I’m looking to actually meet up, why would I want to match with someone 6,000 miles away?) and STILL, just about every other person is outside my distance radius. I live in a very populated city area, I know there are more people within 30 miles of me but tinder has decided I don’t want what I say I want, instead I apparently want what they want me to see. I used to pay for the app, but never again unless some serious quality improvements are made. Showing me people outside my radius doesn’t make me more likely to use tinder, it makes me think tinder is broken. Same goes for the age thing. I have also reported easily over 100 bots/spam accounts and it still is a huge issue - a liiitle bit more verification or something would be great. As it stands, bumble and hinge are much better services. Bumble is getting greedy, locking formerly free features behind a paywall, and Hinge doesn’t have as many users as Tinder or Bumble, but as far as the experience goes? The other two are much better than Tinder.
  • The Biggest Scam Jul 1, 2021

    By justkeepinitreal.35
    So here's the thing. Everyone knows that Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps today. Almost everybody I know uses it and it's crazy to deny the success of the app. HOWEVER, i will point out the biggest scam that this app does. Profiles are banned without any justifiable reason and when the people try to find out, they get a simple message saying that they just "violated the Terms of Use or Community Guidelines". (They don't even give a specific reason why, it's JUST THAT !!) The automated message is the same for everyone who is banned which means that no one is really running the customer support other than a machine. This app doesn't offer appeals to people who've been wrongfully banned which just means that the development team is too lazy to actually help someone bring their account back up. They up prices for the memberships and they barely do anything for you. Also, you don't get your money back if you get Tinder Gold and are banned permanently. This app can be so much better than what it is if the devs actually took the time to critically read these reviews from everyday people. Let us appeal to get our accounts back, have a better customer support system where we can talk to an ACTUAL person instead of an automated message, AND STOP INCREASING THE PRICES OF YOUR MEMBERSHIPS. You have millions of dollars from the people who use your app. Why don't you take that money and better the experience for consumers.
  • Banned for no reason... Mar 6, 2021

    By Ghosted by Tinder
    I’ve used the app almost since the app first was created, and it has led to some decent dates and friendships along the way. I truly enjoyed the app (not so much the “match-and-silence/ignore” trend, but that falls on the user, not the app). I’ve posted rather silly pictures of my self fully clothed. I’ve never harassed anyone or pursued anyone beyond a clear ignoring of a message or unmatch. Not was my profile spam or fake in any way. I was instructed by the generic automated email when I reached out and all I was told is that I “violated the user agreement or terms of use” or something along those lines. When I checked those terms, there was not one thing that could be remotely close to any term that I’ve broken that I’ve done in the years of using the app. And when I replied back with elaboration, there was, of course, no response. They also stopped allowing appeals, so now I’m unable to get back on the app. There are other apps, I know. But this just doesn’t sit right with me - someone who uses the app only for it’s intended purpose and is not life banned for the app for no apparent reason, given no explanation, and no opportunity to fix it. This app was in the end a waste of my time and money (oh yeah, I subscribed multiple times to their advanced features to see who swiped on me because why not?) Beware any newcomer to this app that this is a fairly common issue on getting banned for no reason! Enjoy it whilst you can...

    First and foremost thing, I paid for tinder platinum for one year. But, I could use it only for a few months. After that it is gone. I am not able to access tinder platinum for quite a few months now. Please refund my money. Otherwise, I have no other option except to go to consumer forum.
