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.
In this article we’ll teach you:
— How to get unbanned from Tinder
— Why you got banned in the first place
— How to know if you’ve been shadowbanned on Tinder
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
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!!)
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.
