7 Most likely reasons why you got banned on Tinder


Read these 7 reasons first, so you never get banned again.

Some of the reasons might be quite unexpected.

It used to take quite extreme measures to get banned from Tinder.

But times change, my friend. And so do the Tinder rules.

It doesn’t take an IQ of 7000 to figure out that you won’t get banned on Tinder if you behave like a well mannered human being…

…but at the same time, you can get banned faster than you’d think.

Even if you think you ARE behaving according to social norms.

One of the reasons is that Tinder makes their users law enforcers. Anyone can report anyone. And if you get reported one too many times… you’re out.

And Tinder is swinging the might banhammer around more freely than ever. Just look at this screenshot:

The keywords ‘banned from Tinder’ went up by a staggering 326% lately.

People wondering “how to get unbanned from Tinder” increased by 514%.

Coincidentally that’s the same amount of swag increase my students see after applying my TextGod Toolkit.

(Not going to lie, applying my system of texting also does increase your chance at getting banned if you use it carelessly. But for most men this will be a huge benefit, as they finally get EMOTIONAL conversations that lead to dates, instead of BORING convos that lead to nothing.)

So, let’s see why people are getting banned left and right.

1: Offensive language

Surprise surprise, you’re not allowed to insult people.

No matter what kind of profanity you’re throwing at your matches, it’s punishable.

If you the other person reports you and Tinder agrees that your behavior is untolerable, you’re going to get a warning.

Since the start of my Tinder journey, when the app was still brand new, I’ve collected some of these.

They usually came after testing all sorts of things for articles, YouTube videos, or online courses.

I then ticked off the box “I understand. It won’t happen again”, and continued my journey.

Until one day, I didn’t have to promise anything anymore, and got my account deleted by Tinder.

When you get banned, no one tells you why exactly you got banned.

I’ve heard many other sites saying you just have to wait a few days and then kindly and diplomatically ask for forgiveness. And then after waiting for a week or two… *poof* the ban will disappear, and you are free to enjoy Tinder again.

Sounds nice. But it’s not true.

I have tried appealing bans on multiple accounts, banned for different reasons. On my own Tinder a coach’s Tinder, my girlfriend’s Tinder, and so on…

The dating app is getting more and more strict. And less and less forgiving by the day.

The app can’t afford it’s biotope getting polluted. There’s too much at stake.

Long story short: If you get banned in this day and age, the ban is most likely irreversible and trying to fight Tinder’s decision seems like wasted energy.

Here’s the email my girlfriend received after one of our YouTube videos went south:

2: Catfishing

Catfishing is a term that is part of the new online dating lingo.

No, you’re not allowed to pretend to be someone you’re not.

There’s plenty of fake accounts floating around Tinder.

(and I’ve always tried to report all of them, contributing to a better dating app)

Some guys and girls pretend to be really attractive people they are not. Some do it to get attention from people they otherwise wouldn’t get. Others have more malicious intentions such as blackmail.

And even if you just want to have a laugh by creating a fictional profile, you can get banned from Tinder.

This girl reported getting banned from Tinder because of her Loch Ness profile.

(And she then used a friend’s phone number to create a new one and have another laugh.)

As you can see, she’s rocking Tinder Plus. So nope, paying for the app doesn’t grant you immunity.

3: Racism

This seems pretty obvious.

Racism in any kind or form isn’t tolerated.

Ignore this rule and get you’ll get swung at by the banhammer.

After experimenting with just texting song lyrics, that included the word ‘nigga’ in a way that didn’t seem offensive, I received a warning from Tinder.

Again, it’s not because you say stuff you don’t find offensive, that you can say it. If the other person takes offense, then they can report you.

And if you get reported one too many times, you’ll be kicked out. More on that later.

Let’s say you made certain jokes to Sarah and she found them super funny.

If you say the same things to Taylor and she’s a conservative prude more sensitive person, then she can still report you.

4: Image violation (careful what photos you pick)

There are some photos that no one wants to see.

These images are therefor getting you banned on Tinder.

If you ever doubted whether posting naked or violent photos would make you popular…

…the answer is no. It gets you banned from the app.

99.999% of women are not pleased with unasked dïckpïcks.

And normal people aren’t looking forward to seeing violent photos.

Speaking about violent photos…

Some people have uploaded photos where they proudly pose next to a dead animal.

Here’s what Tinder said:

Posing next to a king of the jungle doesn’t make you one. It’s time for the tiger selfies to go. More often than not, these photos take advantage of beautiful creatures that have been torn from their natural environment.

Loud and clear.

5: Being underage

Here’s a statement from Tinder in 2016:

On a platform that has facilitated over 11 billion connections, we have the responsibility of constantly assessing our different user experiences. Consistent with this responsibility, we have decided to discontinue service for under 18 users.


Even just joking about being underage is bannable.

I put this to the test for you in this video:

6: Spamming

No one likes their inbox spammed.

And Tinder doesn’t like their servers flooded or their customers annoyed.

One type of spamming you should be careful for, is copying one line, and pasting it in all your chats.

No bueno, compadre.

And there’s another type of spamming that Tinder doesn’t tolerate:

7: Promoting

Whether you’re promoting a business, a campaign, or your arty-farty hipster blog, or shamelessly spamming people to follow you on Instagram…

…Tinder is not the place for it.

Unless you want to get payed ads featured in between profiles.

So if you get caught promoting anything but yourself as a dte worthy person, you’ll get banned from Tinder.

Getting reported multiple times

Last but not least. WHATEVER you do that makes people report you, can result in a ban.

Whether you’re posing with dead elephants, throwing racial slurs around, or just annoying people in any way possible…

…if you get reported too many times, Tinder will rid you from it’s dating pool.

But just like you saw at the start of this article, you will get a warning first.

You then have to promise not to misbehave again.

If you keep your promise, you’re in the clear.

If you don’t, it’s game over for you.

So what if it actually is game over?

Are you done with Tinder forever?

Can you get a second chance?

Can you get unbanned from Tinder?

You’ll find out right now.

How to get unbanned from Tinder

Alright buddy, let’s get you unbanned.

There’s multiple ways to go about it and all of them vary per device. Android vs iPhone, web client vs phone, etc.

What I’m going to do, is give you one way that works both on iPhone AND Android.

Btw, if you want to be able to sexualize conversations WITHOUT getting banned… just use the copy pastable lines from my TextGod Toolkit. I’m giving them to you for free together with a profile checklist and my #1 best tested opener.

Here’s the most solid way to get unbanned from Tinder in 7 simple steps:

  1. Delete Tinder
  2. Buy a new SIM card
  3. Create a new Google account (Android) or a new Apple ID (iPhone)
  4. Download Tinder through your new Google or Apple account
  5. Create an account only using your new SIM’s phone number. Don’t use a new Facebook. If you only use your phone number, Tinder won’t periodically ask you to log in through Facebook again.
  6. If you want Tinder Plus or Gold, you’ll need to use a friend or family member’s credit card. Since yours will be linked to your banned Tinder account. You can instantly buy a one year subscription so you don’t need to constantly bother your friend for new payments.
  7. If you want to play it extra safe, use new photos or crop them differently. Since Tinder’s AI might detect that your photos were used on a banned account.

If you connected your Instagram to your previous account, it’s best not to connect it again to your new one. Tinder will probably recognize you and ban you again.

Now that you know what to do to roam Tinderland freely once more, let’s mock some people that also got banned from Tinder:

It’s quite explicitly sexual straight from the start.

Looks like a good one to collect reports.

How about this account?

Take a giant step back, amigo

A post shared by Unspirational (@tindernightmares) on

This one got a giggle from me first time I heard it. Unfortunately, most women will find it gross and insulting rather than funny.

Luckily for these guys, they can always find this article and get themselves a second chance.

    My Tinder account just got banned! I see no reason why (and have no-one to ask) ? There was no warning and no explanations

    It worked perfectly for a 10 days while I was abroad for a holiday…but now it got banned after 2-3 hours of use ( during which Tinder was constantly lagging and crashed for about 6-7 times)?

    Very strange and unprofessional. I hope to see some alternative apps

    I was banned without explanation – someone on bumble told me that there was an account that was all my pics saying I was trans that he had seen, so I think someone was trying to get me banned for rejecting them.

    I’ve been using bumble and hinge

  • barrie says:

    I was banned for no reason, But can only work out that I used tinder when I was abroad in another country and activated phone location on my phone and within an hour I was banned. Tinder worked until I activated location. Now back in my country I cannot get back onto Tinder or allow me to get unbanned even though over 6 months ago. Tried emails to the reason but no answer expect the standard message of you have broke our terms etc, But they don’t explain which part.

  • Greg says:

    Is there a way to get unbanned on Tinder when you have no idea why they banned you to begin with? I signed up for Tinder and a few hours later received notification that I had been banned, received absolutely no explanation why it happened, and hadn’t even used the account for anything other that swiping right for profiles I liked. I don’t want to buy a new SIM card just to sign up for Tinder again, didn’t buy a subscription and barely used it and then BAM!!! Got banned. It’s frustrating because I have no idea what, if anything, I did wrong.

    • Louis Farfields says:

      Hey Greg, that’s strange. Maybe some of your photos were not in line with Tinder’s rules?
      You can always email them, explaining your situation, but in my experience the chances of success are very small.

  • Yeah says:

    Same honestly going to try Hinge or something else fuck Tinder.
