Avid Tinder users will know there are plenty of fake accounts and bots. At the same time, it can be frustrating if you’ve been mistakenly banned — especially if you were in the middle of an ongoing conversation. If you were wrongfully banned, it’s time to make an appeal. Let’s go over how to get unbanned from Tinder.

QUICK ANSWER

To get unbanned from Tinder, launch a browser and go to Tinder's request submission page. Select Trouble with account login > My account was banned. Enter your account details, then make your appeal in the description box. Attach any helpful media, then click SUBMIT.

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 its website, Tinder explains that “accounts are banned when it identifies violations of its Community Guidelines or Terms of Use.” 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

You can appeal the decision if you feel Tinder wrongfully banned your account. The process isn’t super simple, but it will give you the best chance of getting back on the platform.

How to submit a Tinder request:

  1. Use your browser to navigate to Tinder’s request submission page.
  2. Under What can we help with?, click on the drop-down menu and select Trouble with Account login.
  3. Under What’s going on?, choose My account was banned.
  4. Enter Your email address, Phone number, and fill out the Description.
  5. If helpful, you can also attach images.
  6. When finished, click SUBMIT.

What to do if you can’t recover your account

Besides making your case as an appeal, there isn’t much you can do if Tinder bans your account. 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. So, if you can’t change the Tinder team’s mind, you might be out of the game.
