Why was my Tinder account banned?

Tinder bans fake accounts and bots. The system relies on reports if the algorithm doesn’t automatically recognize auto-programmed behavior and faulty interactions.

Beyond that, on their website, Tinder explains that bans are handed out “when there has been a violation of [their] Terms of Use and/or Community Guidelines.” This includes harassment, nudity and sexual content, violence, hate speech, disclosing private information, spam, scams, promotion or solicitation, prostitution and trafficking, impersonation, minors, copyright and trademark infringement, illegal usage, more than one account, third-party apps, and account dormancy.

How to get your Tinder account unbanned

If you feel like your account was wrongfully banned, you can appeal. The process isn’t super simple, but it will give you the best chance of getting unbanned from the platform.

Start by going to the Tinder request submission page. Under What can we help with? select Trouble with account login.

Under What’s going on? select Can’t login, my account was banned.

Add your account’s email address and phone number, then describe when and why your account was banned. Explain why you believe it shouldn’t be banned, then attach any necessary screenshots or additional documents to help you make your case.

What to do if you can’t get your account unbanned

Besides making your case as an appeal, there isn’t much you can do if you got banned on Tinder. Because this is a dating app and people are making themselves vulnerable, Tinder is very strict when it comes to its rules.

According to Tinder, “if you’ve been banned, you’ll no longer be able to access your Tinder account or create new accounts in the future.”
