    The app is okay for what it is. Definitely worth upgrading so that you can be selective with your matches. For example if you don't like hookups, its so much easier to filter out all of them. Also, almost everyone doesn't answer. I messaged like 4 people and its been 5 days with no replies. Idk how to solve that but thats the biggest suckass thing about this app is that no one answers

    While it's good, it's very geared towards microtransactions. While you can still have a great time not purchasing, it kinda puts you at a disadvantage if you don't. On occasion it will recommend individuals who are thousands of miles away, and who aren't looking for, even if you put limits on who you want to see, and on range. Aside from the rampant profiles for clout, it's decent at what it does!
  • 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.

    Tinder is by far one of the top dating apps that most people download. But it doesn’t mean it’s the best. The only good thing about it is that I had a few dates here and there. But it took me FOREVER to find someone legit because this app , on a guys point of view, is infested with soooo many fake accounts! A lot of young girls are on there promoting there OnlyFans account and Snapchat premiums. As well as fake spammers that make fake profiles with other woman’s pictures. I like that new verified check they added but it’s not enough. Tinder needs to step it up more on blocking these fake accounts. There has to be a system or a new way to catch/remove these spammers/advertisers. Other than that, it’s quite legit. You have to get a boost here now and then to actually get noticed. But I don’t blame em’ cause they have to make money some how. That’s why I give this app a 3 stars because it can be a lot better for us guys if they can remove and block these fake accounts. Badoo and these other dating apps went downhill because of these spammers/fake accounts. Please, Tinder, do not become like them.
  • Could always be better Dec 14, 2020

    By MsGenki
    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.
  • Trouble Unsubscribing Aug 28, 2020

    By DanFingerMan
    Why is it near impossible to unsubscribe? I logged into Tinder on the their website, clicked on settings and clicked “Manage Payment Account”. Then it shows a message saying I subscribed on the native app and that I should unsubscribe from there. No problem. I get on the app and go to my settings and guess what? THERE IS NO “Manage Payment Account” in the settings tab! So I try unsubscribing via Apple ID (iTunes), even though I paid directly with CC. Nothing was found under subscriptions either. Okay. 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. Just be careful when subscribing.

  • There’s always been bugs Oct 9, 2020

    By adam_and
    Tinder’s goal is to help you meet people, and it does that well, but getting there can be a struggle with all these bugs. The app constantly breaks when I swipe from a profile too the messages tab, things get hung up, even on a newer iPhone. Sometimes the app crashes. My biggest pet peeve is the fact that unless I turn on every form of notification for Tinder, I have a notice inside every conversation telling me to turn on notifications. I get a lot of notifications from Tinder, so I would like to have them sent to Notification Center without a banner, badge, or sound. The app constantly is reminding me to “turn notifications on!” even when they ARE on, just sent to the Notification Center. 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.
  • 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.
  • 1 complaint Jan 4, 2021

    By julius.the.great
    Heyy tinder love your app can’t really complain about anything but there is one thing, when you get a message and the person who sent you the message decides to delete the app or unmatch you right after. Why is it not possible to see what they said, I have bad anxiety as is so for someone to send me a message or 2 just for me to open the app and that person is nowhere to be seen it hurts 😔. The least I could ask is what that person said so plz add the ability to see what that person said before deleting you or add some sort of offline feature that lets you see what they said and message back and they don’t get the message u til they download the app back or something. Too many sleepless nights from messages I coulda read if I woulda opened the app sooner rather than later 🤦🏽‍♂️. That’s about it doe and more tinder decision based stories cuz those are always fun 🙃.
  • Randomly Banned Account Nov 3, 2020

    By Wickedsix04
    Used TINDER MULTIPLE times, never had any issues with violating terms of use. I used it just as i normally would and in the exact manner as the platform is designed. When across their Mexican border, came back and randomly account had been banned. I wrote customer support and explained I had not tampered with or done anything I normally would have done (basically swiping, matching and then moving outside of the platform in order to make a real connection). They said they don’t offer appeals but also wouldn’t tell me what terms I violated. This was also after I subscribed to the Gold account. I now was charged and banned from Tinder for what seems to be a random violation that they can not and will not bring evidence of any foul play to the table. Tinder had random people soliciting sex and they have profiles active. So if you are going to use this app be weary of no support what so ever .
  • 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.

    Downloaded in the expectation of paying for full features. Won't bother until they can fix the distance tool. If I set it at 50 miles why am I being matched to someone 3500 miles away? They seem to have gone all out in support of vaccination but quite happy to encourage us to travel half way round the world. Please fix this.
  • Tinder decent app Jul 15, 2021

    By D. Willliams
    Tinder been around for as long as I can remember few updates here and there but for some reason has never managed to fix the like and time ratio. I live in a pretty big city so the ratio should be pretty decent but yet I get more gold likes and the. Proceed to never match anyone. Then I stretch out my distance and age still maybe get 1-2 matches and normally never hear back from anyone. Then I use all the swipes and have to wait 12 hours just to go through the same cycle again. You can add many new perks to the app but not fix something as common as this. The guys in this app obviously out number the women so why not give the actually guys a chance to pop up above the 100 messages the creepy guy just sent. Or give us a shorter time difference and not try to steal our money for the “gold benefit” which we both know ain’t no real benefit. I’ve deleted the app More time then I should have out of frustration but continue to come back for hopes something have changed.. so far I have 3 likes matched one and got my distance and age at 100 miles and 100 age still have yet to match the so called two other likes. You made global but not everyone once that perk so why not make it easier for the people who just want to stay local. Again decent app but still major flaws in your system and for love bob delete the accounts that are no longer active it’s just unnecessary clutter.

    If your thinking to pay for extras don't bother! I had more matches when I ran a free tinder. Due to a recent offer I decided to try out the platnuim purchasing it for 6 months. The amount of matches I get has dramatically droped. I recently paid for boosts to get more exposure £3.33 each 2 of my boosts returned not even one like depsite it being peak times. Stick with the free version. The more you spend the more it's not enough and you have to spend more and more! Very greedy
  • Banned for no reason Jun 16, 2021

    By pFushiguro
    I got the app a few years ago originally as a joke but lately I get on when I’m bored and want to meet new people. I don’t leave my house often and when I do I’m generally too anxious to talk to anyone so tinder made it easier to talk to people. My profile was pretty random and full of jokes just so people could get a read on my personality. I didn’t want to match with people who wouldn’t have the same interests and humor as me so I made it clear what I was like in my profile. Originally I had a pretty normal profile so I thought maybe I got banned for something I put in my revamped profile but then I reviewed the terms of use and realized there was nothing in my profile that seemed to violate them (it would’ve been easier to know if they would’ve told me what I was banned for). I did however realize that 98% of the people in my area had been violating the terms of use and weren’t getting banned. Photos of dead animals are apparently one of the things you aren’t supposed to use on your profile. Every other guy in my area had photos of dead deer, ducks, and turkey. I had one DRAWN picture of 2 guys kissing fully clothed at the end of my profile while all these rural town guys have multiple pictures of dead animals on theirs and MY account is the one that gets banned. It doesn’t make any sense to me. I personally would rather see a stupid drawing pull up on someone’s profile than dozens of dead ducks or deer bleeding from their mouths.

    Passport has ruined this app. You will be flooded with people 6000 miles away even if your distance is set to 10 miles. People using passport will clog up your swipes. Generally Thai people looking for free English tutors. It makes it impossible to talk to real people who live within a reachable distance. The sooner tinder get rid of passport the better. At the very least it should allow users to filter passport users. Tinders death will be because of its own doing. RIP tinder.
  • Banned and got no help May 10, 2021

    By Ysklef
    Okay, so I recently redownloaded the app and had it for about two days. I even made plans to meet someone on it. It worked fine this morning and then I logged in this afternoon and was greeted with: “Your account was banned.” I’m really upset honestly. I’m worried that the guy will think I ghosted him and I don’t want to make him feel bad. I looked through everything carefully and know for a fact that I didn’t violate any terms or guidelines. I didn’t get a specific explanation for why I was banned or even a specific guideline that I supposedly broke. Also, the appeals system (or lack thereof) is important. People need to know specifically why their account has been banned and there should be an appeals process. What if there was a glitch in the system? An innocent person could be forever banned with no way to know why or get their account back. I won’t tell people that they shouldn’t download it, it’s one of the most popular apps out there and it’s pointless to advise against it. I am, however, very hurt and frustrated over the lack of support, explanation, and this horrible situation in general. Something is broken and needs to be fixed efficiently and in a timely manner. If this has happened to you, please say something because I know I’m not the only one and the more people who speak up, the more likely tinder is to help. There simply isn’t a great replacement for tinder and I would like to let that guy know that I didn’t ghost him.

    I really appreciate the new Hot Takes feature but it fails to give you the option to connect after chatting with someone. It just sits on a blank screen with the background UI. Very frustrating when a good match disappears because of this. On a similar note, you often have to exit Hot Takes and rejoin to continue searching after skipping a chat. You wonder where the QA goes with these new features. 🤦🏻
  • 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.

    This app use to be great now it's like they hide your matches and want you to pay for everything when they bring the bare minimum for the users. It's literally like every other money hungry app now. Like if someone is interested in someone else why make it a mission to find them instead of putting them at the front of the shuffle.

Aside from the rampant profiles for clout, it's decent at what it does!

  • Too Many Fake Accounts! Jan 13, 2021

    By Lord Erlexar
    Tinder is by far one of the top dating apps that most people download. But it doesn’t mean it’s the best. The only good thing about it is that I had a few dates here and there. But it took me FOREVER to find someone legit because this app , on a guys point of view, is infested with soooo many fake accounts! A lot of young girls are on there promoting there OnlyFans account and Snapchat premiums. As well as fake spammers that make fake profiles with other woman’s pictures. I like that new verified check they added but it’s not enough. Tinder needs to step it up more on blocking these fake accounts. There has to be a system or a new way to catch/remove these spammers/advertisers. Other than that, it’s quite legit. You have to get a boost here now and then to actually get noticed. But I don’t blame em’ cause they have to make money some how. That’s why I give this app a 3 stars because it can be a lot better for us guys if they can remove and block these fake accounts. Badoo and these other dating apps went downhill because of these spammers/fake accounts. Please, Tinder, do not become like them.
  • Could always be better Dec 14, 2020

    By MsGenki
    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.
  • Trouble Unsubscribing Aug 28, 2020

    By DanFingerMan
    Why is it near impossible to unsubscribe? I logged into Tinder on the their website, clicked on settings and clicked “Manage Payment Account”. Then it shows a message saying I subscribed on the native app and that I should unsubscribe from there. No problem. I get on the app and go to my settings and guess what? THERE IS NO “Manage Payment Account” in the settings tab! So I try unsubscribing via Apple ID (iTunes), even though I paid directly with CC. Nothing was found under subscriptions either. Okay. 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. Just be careful when subscribing.
  • There’s always been bugs Oct 9, 2020

    By adam_and
    Tinder’s goal is to help you meet people, and it does that well, but getting there can be a struggle with all these bugs. The app constantly breaks when I swipe from a profile too the messages tab, things get hung up, even on a newer iPhone. Sometimes the app crashes. My biggest pet peeve is the fact that unless I turn on every form of notification for Tinder, I have a notice inside every conversation telling me to turn on notifications. I get a lot of notifications from Tinder, so I would like to have them sent to Notification Center without a banner, badge, or sound. The app constantly is reminding me to “turn notifications on!” even when they ARE on, just sent to the Notification Center. 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.
  • 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.
  • App’s Getting Worse with each Update Nov 9, 2020

    By Leo_Boy95
    Tinder as a concept is great. You log on, swipe to your heart’s content, and meet new people. No need for a bunch of features to add to your profile. It’s simple. Wonderful idea. At one point the app worked perfectly too, but as time’s gone on and more updates come out the UI/UX has gone down a lot. UI features go missing randomly, never to be seen again unless you reinstall. Videos won’t upload; sometimes they won’t even show up. When they do upload, it’s 50/50 on whether or not other’s can see them, as profiles glitch often. As time’s gone on, the app just gets more buggy. I think it could just be the way they’re updating the app, but the experience on Tinder just isn’t what it used to be. It’s a shame because I actually do still like the app, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t displeased/expecting better. Please look into the bugs. A lot of them have persisted thru a few updates

    By Michael G
    Downloaded in the expectation of paying for full features. Won't bother until they can fix the distance tool. If I set it at 50 miles why am I being matched to someone 3500 miles away? They seem to have gone all out in support of vaccination but quite happy to encourage us to travel half way round the world. Please fix this.
  • Tinder decent app Jul 15, 2021

    By D. Willliams
    Tinder been around for as long as I can remember few updates here and there but for some reason has never managed to fix the like and time ratio. I live in a pretty big city so the ratio should be pretty decent but yet I get more gold likes and the. Proceed to never match anyone. Then I stretch out my distance and age still maybe get 1-2 matches and normally never hear back from anyone. Then I use all the swipes and have to wait 12 hours just to go through the same cycle again. You can add many new perks to the app but not fix something as common as this. The guys in this app obviously out number the women so why not give the actually guys a chance to pop up above the 100 messages the creepy guy just sent. Or give us a shorter time difference and not try to steal our money for the “gold benefit” which we both know ain’t no real benefit. I’ve deleted the app More time then I should have out of frustration but continue to come back for hopes something have changed.. so far I have 3 likes matched one and got my distance and age at 100 miles and 100 age still have yet to match the so called two other likes. You made global but not everyone once that perk so why not make it easier for the people who just want to stay local. Again decent app but still major flaws in your system and for love bob delete the accounts that are no longer active it’s just unnecessary clutter.

    I really appreciate the new Hot Takes feature but it fails to give you the option to connect after chatting with someone. It just sits on a blank screen with the background UI. Very frustrating when a good match disappears because of this. On a similar note, you often have to exit Hot Takes and rejoin to continue searching after skipping a chat. You wonder where the QA goes with these new features. 🤦🏻
  • Jul 24, 2021

    By Theartris Eaton
    This app use to be great now it's like they hide your matches and want you to pay for everything when they bring the bare minimum for the users. It's literally like every other money hungry app now. Like if someone is interested in someone else why make it a mission to find them instead of putting them at the front of the shuffle.
  • Jul 20, 2021

    By Joel Gawarecki
    Tinder treats its users like cash cows. They should be grateful for everyone one of their unique and interesting users but instead they milk you and ignore you. Not only that but this system of matching is deeply flawed and puts the idea into your head that people are disposable. There are a lot of flakes and ghosts. I recommend going to a bookstore and meeting someone face to face, you'll get a lot more out of it than awkwardly texting for a week and getting nothing.
  • 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.

    The app has been super buggy and laggy for the last month or so.... I'd expect it to be fixed by now. Everytime I view a match, and exit back to the match page, it takes a bit to load. Then when I view another match and exit back, it takes longer to load the match page. By the 3rd time, it just never loads...
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.

    If your thinking to pay for extras don't bother! I had more matches when I ran a free tinder. Due to a recent offer I decided to try out the platnuim purchasing it for 6 months. The amount of matches I get has dramatically droped. I recently paid for boosts to get more exposure £3.33 each 2 of my boosts returned not even one like depsite it being peak times. Stick with the free version. The more you spend the more it's not enough and you have to spend more and more! Very greedy
  • Banned for no reason Jun 16, 2021

    By pFushiguro
    I got the app a few years ago originally as a joke but lately I get on when I’m bored and want to meet new people. I don’t leave my house often and when I do I’m generally too anxious to talk to anyone so tinder made it easier to talk to people. My profile was pretty random and full of jokes just so people could get a read on my personality. I didn’t want to match with people who wouldn’t have the same interests and humor as me so I made it clear what I was like in my profile. Originally I had a pretty normal profile so I thought maybe I got banned for something I put in my revamped profile but then I reviewed the terms of use and realized there was nothing in my profile that seemed to violate them (it would’ve been easier to know if they would’ve told me what I was banned for). I did however realize that 98% of the people in my area had been violating the terms of use and weren’t getting banned. Photos of dead animals are apparently one of the things you aren’t supposed to use on your profile. Every other guy in my area had photos of dead deer, ducks, and turkey. I had one DRAWN picture of 2 guys kissing fully clothed at the end of my profile while all these rural town guys have multiple pictures of dead animals on theirs and MY account is the one that gets banned. It doesn’t make any sense to me. I personally would rather see a stupid drawing pull up on someone’s profile than dozens of dead ducks or deer bleeding from their mouths.

    Passport has ruined this app. You will be flooded with people 6000 miles away even if your distance is set to 10 miles. People using passport will clog up your swipes. Generally Thai people looking for free English tutors. It makes it impossible to talk to real people who live within a reachable distance. The sooner tinder get rid of passport the better. At the very least it should allow users to filter passport users. Tinders death will be because of its own doing. RIP tinder.
  • Banned and got no help May 10, 2021

    By Ysklef
    Okay, so I recently redownloaded the app and had it for about two days. I even made plans to meet someone on it. It worked fine this morning and then I logged in this afternoon and was greeted with: “Your account was banned.” I’m really upset honestly. I’m worried that the guy will think I ghosted him and I don’t want to make him feel bad. I looked through everything carefully and know for a fact that I didn’t violate any terms or guidelines. I didn’t get a specific explanation for why I was banned or even a specific guideline that I supposedly broke. Also, the appeals system (or lack thereof) is important. People need to know specifically why their account has been banned and there should be an appeals process. What if there was a glitch in the system? An innocent person could be forever banned with no way to know why or get their account back. I won’t tell people that they shouldn’t download it, it’s one of the most popular apps out there and it’s pointless to advise against it. I am, however, very hurt and frustrated over the lack of support, explanation, and this horrible situation in general. Something is broken and needs to be fixed efficiently and in a timely manner. If this has happened to you, please say something because I know I’m not the only one and the more people who speak up, the more likely tinder is to help. There simply isn’t a great replacement for tinder and I would like to let that guy know that I didn’t ghost him.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    It hides everything behind an insane paywall that doesn't make sense. Just do ads you greedy troglodytes. I want to see who matched me so I can be happy, not in debt to the mob. Every dating app is like this too. I don't make enough money to pay $66 just to see who matched me in an app. Or charge $14 dollars for a single month. You suck.
  • Banned for no reason... Mar 6, 2021

    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...
