How to Get Unbanned from Tinder

Do something maybe a bit sketchy? Now wondering how to get unbanned from Tinder?

As the most superficial and widely-used dating app around, Tinder can sometimes feel like the wild wild west of online romance.

From stupid one-liners to bots, to woman gung-ho to come over despite not even knowing what Netflix show you’re even binging; Tinder’s kinda crazy.

Despite this seemingly sex-crazed atmosphere Tinder actually does have some rules.

And if you break them this message might just pop up on your account.

How To Get Unbanned From Tinder

We both know why you’re here.

You want to get unbanned from Tinder ASAP so you can get back to swiping while on the toilet again.

I feel that.

So without further ado let’s help you get unbanned from Tinder.

Step 1: Delete Tinder (The Right Way)

No doubt you’ve already deleted the app from your phone and downloaded it again but to no avail.

That’s because you’re missing a crucial step (or 5).

To delete the app correctly you have to:

1)  Go into settings

2) Scroll all the way down to the bottom

3) Click the “Delete Account” button

Only once your account has been deleted this way can you then go on to delete the app off your phone.

Step 2: Cover Your Facebook Trail

Chances are you logged into Tinder via FB.

Tinder is really good at not allowing those that have been banned to rejoin Tinder. You can try to rejoin after having deleted your banned account but should that not work move onto this step.

You’ll need to unlink your Facebook account.

To do this go to:

1) FB Settings

2) Apps and Websites

3) Logged In With FB

4) Tinder

5) Remove App

Cover your trail by severing any link you had to Facebook. The only way to do this is by following the aforementioned steps.

Step 3: Reset Phone To Factory Settings/Buy New SIM Card

You may have two options here.

One is to reset the phone to factory settings.

To do this simply go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.

It’s a pretty straightforward process and one that takes a few minutes.

This might do the trick, or it may only delay the inevitable.

Ya see, Tinder sends a code to your phone in the attempt to verify you are who you say you are.

If it recognizes your old number it may prohibit you from downloading and using the app.

Tinder even says as much on their website:

This is why you may need to go the extra yard and purchase a new SIM card, one that’s in no way linked to your old Tinder account.

As you can see by now your main goal is to brush over all the tracks that lead you to your banned account.

Step 4: Create A New Apple ID And/Or Google Account

Again, your old Apple info and Google creds are most likely linked to your Tinder.

Tinder is like a giant octopus with tentacles all over your personal ID.

To successfully open a new account you’ll have to make damn sure that not a single tentacle is touching any of your personal ID.

Step 5: Create A New Tinder Account (Horraayyyy!!)

Almost there.

When creating your new account there are some things you’ll want to keep in mind.

Be sure not to link any of your prior accounts to Tinder.

I’m not only talking about your Apple and Google accounts, but also SM accounts like FB, Spotify, and IG.

Lastly, you’ll want to make sure that your photos are different at well.

This may sound a bit paranoid but you’ll want to use new photos or significantly crop old photos that in no way resemble the photos you once used for your account.

How To Stay Unbanned From Tinder

Just because you’re back in action doesn’t mean it’ll stay that way.

You got banned for a reason.

The only way to ensure it won’t happen again is if you more or less have an idea of what you did to piss Tinder off in the first place.

Luckily Tinder provides a pretty comprehensive list of behavior they don’t tolerate.

First off, know that Tinder only bans accounts that have violated their Terms of Use or Community Guidelines.

“If you’ve been banned from Tinder, you’ll see a message letting you know when you try to log in. We ban accounts when we detect account activity that violates our Terms of Use or Community Guidelines.”

So what are those guidelines?

Tinder lists 16 of them on their website.

Here they are:

— Nudity/Sexual Content

— Harassment

— Violence and Physical Harm

— Hate Speech

— Private Information

— Spam

— Promotion or Solicitation

— Prostitution and Trafficking

— Scamming

— Impersonation

— Minors

— Copyright and Trademark Infringement

— Illegal Usage

— One Person, One Account

— Third-Party Apps

— Account Dormancy

All these rules can be difficult to memorize so let me sum them up in one sentence.

Use Tinder for dating purposes and don’t be a dick.

If you follow this advice and don’t try to game the system you should be fine.

Chances are you got banned for sending an explicit message.

Look I’m not saying women aren’t into the juicy stuff, but there’s a time and a place to send a sexy message and Tinder is never that place.

At least wait until you have her number to begin spicing things up.

If you don’t know how to flirt with women online, read this now. Let it be your bible.

What Is A Tinder Shadowban?

A shadowban is a cheeky way to ban bad boys.

Chances are that once you’ve been shadowbanned you won’t even notice.


Because you should still have access to your account, to your matches, conversations, profile, etc.

The thing if you won’t be able to use your profile.

The chances are Tinder bans most users in this way so that it can continue to collect money.

Signs You’ve Been Shadowbanned on Tinder

Tinder rarely comes out and tells you, you’ve been banned.

In this way Tinder kind of just ghosts you into oblivious until you realize something’s either seriously wrong with you, women, or the app itself.

Personally, I’d rather Tinder just be straightforward with their ban but that seems as likely as GOT or Dexter redoing their entire last season.

That being said there are a few signs to look out for that will signal a shadowban.

Way Less/Zero Matches

Maybe you’re not the kind of guy that gets a lot of matches anyways (btw we can help with that).

If you go an entire month without getting a match despite swiping every day there’s a pretty good chance you’ve been silently tossed out of Tinder’s 24/7 virtual singles club.

Matches Never Text Back

Once you’re in a Tinder convo groove chances are your messages will be responded to.

However, the second you’re shadowbanned is the moment you stop receiving messages. If more than one line went dead at more or less the same time you can rightly assume that you’ve been banned.

You’ve Already Been Warned

Tinder doesn’t give a damn if it loses a few members here and there.

As you can see Tinder is by some distance the most popular dating app in the states.

I doubt it has a team of moderators that take a deep look into every member that’s been reported.

Chances are that once you’ve been reported there’s a decent chance you’ll inevitably be shadowbanned.

You Tried To Game Tinder

New users automatically get shot up to the top of the queue.

Tinder wants new users to use the app so the second they create a new account they’ll make sure they score some matches.

Knowing this, many a man down on his romantic luck will axe his account and then resurrect it shortly after.

Bro, Tinder can see you.

Do this one too many times and Tinder will ban you.

You Don’t Amass New Likes

You swipe and swipe and swipe but nothing ever changes.

Chances are you felt this way prior to the ban but now that it’s in place you really do feel as though Cupid’s actively working against you.

When in doubt scroll back up and re-read the portion about how to get unbanned from Tinder.

What Now?

Now it’s time to follow the steps I just detailed and get yourself back up and running.

But be sure not to make the same mistakes that led to your ban.

Remember to not try to game Tinder and to behave like a gentleman.
