What Is A Shadowban on Hinge?

Do this before reseting

You hear the term shadow ban these days thanks to social media, but the concept is as old as the public internet, with examples dating back to 1980. In fact, it was a common practice in the early days of Craigslist and Reddit.

The idea is simple: rather than simply banning a user or an account, the platform simply makes the user harder to find. This could mean not showing up in searches, or not having comments appear publically.

While something less than having an account removed sounds like a good thing, getting banned this way can be even more insidious — because you can't always tell that's it's happened.

Rather than getting a notification that you've been banned, blocked, or deleted, you just notice your engagement numbers slipping over time. And you're left wondering, 'Was it something I said?'

This is why the concept of a Hinge shadowban is so troubling. There's no obvious way to tell if that's what's going on, so any time it seems like you're not getting the likes, matches, or messages you're expecting, you're left wondering if it's you, if it's a technical bug, or if there could be a Hinge ban in place.

In fact, Hinge doesn't officially say that they use shadow banning, and some dating experts don't even think this kind of ban is real. Meanwhile, Bumble wrote a blog post saying they don't use a shadow ban.

So is it real? Can you undo it? Keep reading to find out.

It's hard to know what makes you look attractive on dating apps, and even harder to make the changes needed to get more matches.

You've probably heard that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder," but what does that mean when it comes to your dating profile? Without help, it can be tough to know what works - and what doesn't.

how long does a hinge shadowban last

How Long Does A Hinge Shadowban Last?

Tinder get more matches

Because this kind of ban isn't official, there are no firm answers from Hinge about what to expect. On Tinder, experts say these bans can occur for 24 hours, 7 days, or 30 days, depending on what rules were broken and how many infractions there have been.

Other sources claim that a Hinge account can be expected to reset in three months. So while that may sound like too long to wait — doing nothing is clearly the easiest solution. So if you're not too attached to Hinge, try spending a few months on other dating apps and then come back to see if the problem has been resolved.

How To Avoid Getting Banned On Hinge Again

ROAST, make your profile work

Feel like you were banned for no apparent reason? It's frustrating because Hinge won't tell you exactly what got you banned. But an easy guess is that you did something that went against their terms of service, such as trying to maintain multiple accounts or engaging in behavior that got you reported by other users.

If you want to avoid having this problem again, make sure to read up on their terms, and follow the rules!

upgrading to a paid account

Upgrading To A Paid Account

Do this before reseting

Some users have reported success getting a ban removed, or fixing other bugs, by upgrading to a paid account. And this upgrade can serve two purposes. For one, if Hinge won't let you upgrade, you'll know for sure that there's a problem on their end or a problem with your Hinge profile. And second, the additional features of the upgrade might be just what you need to get out of your rut (whatever the cause) and start getting matches again.

Contacting Customer Support To Make An Appeal

Unfortunately, like other apps, Hinge customer support is notoriously difficult to reach. Especially when it comes to bans, they're unlikely to provide much help.

Still, it's worth trying to get in touch before you do anything more drastic, if for no other reason than to verify whether there's a technical glitch they can fix for you.

In fact, if you report issues with their service, it's always possible they'll have a solution. And in some cases Hinge has been known to give paid accounts or other perks to people who have been banned or faced other problems through no fault of their own.

Making Another Account

Two things before reseting your account

If you're sure that being banned is the problem creating a new account may be your only option. Just remember that multiple accounts are one of the issues that get people banned in the first place, so if you're going to go that route, you need to make sure the new account is really a fresh start.

Depending on how you signed up in the first place, you'll want to make sure you're using a new phone or device, new number, new Apple id, and new profile on Facebook.

Once you've got your new Hinge account — spend time to create the kind of profile that will make the woman of your dreams curious about you.

Be sure that your attempts to fix the problem don't simply make things worse.

If you're not getting the results that you're looking for on Hinge, start by making your account the best that it can be — from the pictures to the prompt answers. Next, make sure you're using your daily likes wisely, and that every message you send is a good one.

Most problems people run into are easily solved by creating higher quality profiles and using good communication skills.

And if you do decide that deleting your account and starting over is the way to go, just make sure the new profile is showing you at your best, and that you don't break any rules that could get you banned on Hinge again!
