With the number of users growing, Tinder bans appear more and more frequently. On one hand it is good as it diminishes the presence of bot, spam accounts and offenders or other sexual predators. It's among the most popular dating apps globally. Normal that success comes with a price.
We get it; finding out your Tinder account was banned can be frustrating and stressful. But don't panic! You still have options to get unbanned from Tinder, and we'll explain them all to you here, so you can go back and join all the Tinder users!
Here is the outline of the article, feel free to jump to the section that interests you the most.
A Tinder ban is a full stop to your online dating career on this app. If you misbehave, or are considered as so by Tinder, you have different stage.
First one, they will shadowban you: no one will be able to see your profile but you won't know anything about it.
Second stage, the ban. The ban is the action of login you out. And preventing you from login back in.
In some case, it is also the plain and simple deletion of your account!
The unban will correspond to the action of enabling you to connect back to your account by Tinder.
If you are banned, you loose all the premium features. You won't be able to use this phone number. That's the Nuke!
Most people put a lot of time and effort into their job, but don't think about how they can improve their love life at the same time.
How many hours are you spending every week swiping for... nothing?

Reasons for being banned are numerous. Some of these things might sound obvious, but it's still a good idea to know what to avoid. Here are some of the things that can get you banned from Tinder:
Hate speech, racist comments, offensive language.
Sexually explicit content.
Spam - trying to drive traffic to another site.
Threatening physical harm.
Fake accounts - don't pretend to be someone you're not, they can spot a fake profile.
Using inappropriate language.
Offering commercial sexual services.
Getting reported by other users - keep in mind what you might be doing that could upset the other person.
Using tinder for promotional purposes.
Inappropriate photos, animal corpses, sexual things and so on.
I will add that you should be careful with anything that could be linked to political subjects. Not much to win there, and big risks!
Being a paid subscriber doesn't change the rules — so even if you've got Tinder gold, you still need to follow all of the community guidelines.
Many apps have popped to bring so-called new functionalities to Tinder.
Or mostly, to bring things for free (or less money) that are only available in Tinder Gold or Tinder Platinum.
When it comes to automated swiping, it could be seen as OK.
What happens when you hit Tinder directly on its money thingy? Right, they retaliate.
So like any other app, they don't like much that third-party apps plug into their field.
If you want to go this route, pay attention to the app you're thinking of using, and read their reviews. And think very carefully before you give out your credit card number.
Both the dating apps and the third-party apps are always evolving, so keep in mind that it's always possible that Tinder will figure out what some of these apps are up to, and you could end up losing your account!
Using a Vpn app or vpn service is dangerous, likely to bring to the same result.

So, what are you waiting for to boost your profile?
You have to understand why you are actually getting banned. Like any social network, Tinder wants to keep its user safe.
That is why there is no official appeals process. They favor victims as a choice to keep people safe.
That way, they think that they will keep the most offenders out of the network.
Why is it also sometimes so hard to recover from bans? Well simply because of their design! A ban in a company is often someone pushing a big red button that destroys your account!
Even if they wanted, they could not come back on the decision.
I guess you understand now that between the process itself, and the will to guarantee safety, it is often a one way street. And therefore why so many people can be taken in the crossfire and unrightfully get their account banned.
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.
Thanks to our A.I. trained by 100+ hot girls, you can access personalized advice to make your profile more attractive - in just 2 minutes - and chat with our dating experts. We've already helped over 15,000+ people to get more matches.
No you cant, but yes.
Here what is the current state of the appeal process with Tinder: There is no formal appeals process!
However, you an can create your own simple appeal! The idea is to do a polite appeal.
First you need to contact tinder customer service. It is not a super easy task! Like any other app they do not want to be flooded.
It is almost impossible to join the tinder support system on a phone freely, and you can't email Tinder anymore. Instead, use this form link, but likely to change with time! You can simply Google it otherwise!
And then fill out the form!
Once you are there you need to plead your case. Reach out to us if you need further help. But the idea is to be genuine.
Especially if you did nothing against the community guidelines and you think that your account was just automatically canceled.
But remember: polite appeal.
You won't get an immediate answer but they are usually quite reactive! Wait at least a few hours before anything.
If an appeal doesn't work, you're going to have to start over from scratch, making sure you provide all new information.
To do that, you need a completely blank slate to start from. So, first things first, you need to uninstall Tinder and delete the Tinder app from your phone.
Next, you need to remove any links to your social media accounts like Facebook and Instagram. You'll need to log into these social accounts to delete the connection.
Now it starts to get tricky. Tinder, and other dating apps, are also tracking your device. So, if it happens to be time for a phone upgrade, great. Otherwise, you'll need to work around this. At least try to get a new device id!
If you're not getting a different device, you'll need a new device id. From my experience, it is easier on an android device.
This will look a little different depending on what kind of phone you have, so you'll need to look up the specifics for your model.
Next, you'll need a new SIM card or a new number. Using a friend's phone number might work if you'll have easy access to confirmation codes that get texted to them. Otherwise, you can try something like a google voice number, potentially from a new google account if Tinder already had your previous account information.
Tinder may also tracks your IP address, so that's another area where you'll need to start fresh. To get a new IP address you can either reset your WIFI router or use a VPN. Warning with VPN though, can backfire HARD.
I summarized here the process of resetting. Except here you do not need to delete your account.
Once you've reset your information and have a blank slate, you're ready for a new beginning!
Small aside. Did you know it is possible to make your profile more attractive in 2 minutes and get more matches every day?
Thanks to our Artificial Intelligence trained on 10,000+ pictures rated by hot girls, you will be able to access personalized feedback and tips to boost your dating profile for good.
You will know exactly which pictures are good or not, and most importantly why.
So, what are you waiting for to take charge of your dating life?
You behaved poorly and the Tinder Team sanctionned you!
More seriously, you may have broken some guidelines, knowingly or not.
You may also have fallen in a trap, being considered as a spam account. That's usually the case if you use a VPN service for instance! You get instantly shadowbanned, and likely to be banned.
You can also have been the victim of malicious people. Like I said earlier, it is now common to go after someone this way.
Basically, you can have done one (or several) of those type of actions:
Playing with the fire: you have tried to be smarter than Tinder technologically.
You had an issue with other Tinder users. Regarding your bio, pictures or conversations.
So review the first section, and try to understand what may have happened.
There is a lot of abuse in the report system. Tinder is still young and booming, so they are not fit yet to filter everything properly.
Be respectful, that's the ground rule.
However, if you have a doubt that someone may try to abuse the system to report you, you may need to take measures first.
Use the feature to HIDE your profile to potential ex's that may be tempted to not fully let you go.
In case a conversation goes south, just un-match the other person, and part ways peacefully.
Those little tips can make a significant difference in your banning chances!
Most likely? Forever. An account banned is usually staying as-is forever, except if the appeal works!
Unlike "Facebook jail" which is used as a temporary punishment for misbehavior, a Tinder ban is usually permanent. Sometimes you get a warning message first, indicating that you may have violated community guidelines. If that happens, take it seriously. You may not get another warning before ending up with a banned Tinder account!
And when they ban your account, you lose everything. All your matches, all your conversations, everything. So the best option really is to avoid a ban in the first place.
You guessed it. During the previous steps you had to delete Tinder, and that means you need to download Tinder and start over with a new account. Bye bye old account!
Try to view this new account as a chance to do everything better this time. Make a new Tinder profile that's better than your last one. Here are some ideas on how to do Tinder right.
Use the opportunity to get new pictures, and why not write a new bio too!
When making your new account, you've got a chance to rethink what pictures you share. Make sure they're all within the community guidelines and make sure they're all different from before. Remember, everything about your new account needs to be brand new.

To create your new account, you'll either need a new Facebook account, or you'll need to link your new account to a new phone number (addressed above) and a new email address. Using the same device is possible, although not really recommended.
Every piece of information you share to sign up needs to be new, so depending on your device and how you decide to sign up that could mean a new Apple ID or a new Google play store account.
If you're planning to pay for a Tinder subscription or for any of their special features, make sure you use a new payment method.
While it may have been frustrating to deal with a Tinder ban, remember that like any dating app, Tinder's terms are in place for the sake of user safety.
This time around try to follow Tinder's rules and community guidelines and you won't have to worry about getting slapped with a permanent ban again.
