7 Most likely reasons why you got banned on Tinder
It doesn’t take an IQ of 7000 to figure out that you won’t get banned on Tinder if you behave yourself.
The trouble is that Tinder isn’t very clear on what good behavior looks like.
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.
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.
Although I find the toilet paper line awful in terms of seduction, it is clearly a joke. And hardly banworthy.
But the app just can’t afford its biotope getting polluted. There’s too much at stake.
So if someone reports you and Tinder agrees that your behavior is intolerable, you’re going to get a warning.
Get one too many warnings and your account will get deleted by Tinder. Without explanation.
I’ve heard many other sites saying you just have to wait a few days and then kindly and diplomatically ask for forgiveness.
Sounds nice enough.
But it’s not true.
My friends and I have tried appealing bans on multiple accounts without any success.
The dating app is getting more and more strict. And less and less forgiving by the day.
Long story short: If you get banned in this day and age, the ban is most likely irreversible. 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:
Catfishing is a term that’s part of the new online dating lingo.
No, you’re not allowed to pretend to be someone you’re not.
There are plenty of fake accounts floating around Tinder.
(And I’ve always tried to report all of them, contributing to a better dating app.)
Tinder will ban you even if you like to have a laugh by imitating a fictional creature.
I know, because the girl that created this Loch Ness Tinder profile told me.
(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.
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.
The rule is simple: if someone takes offense, they can report you.
And if you get reported one too many times, you’ll be kicked out.
So even if Sarah from Tinder really enjoyed your dark humor, convervative Cassy may not.
4. Image violation (careful what photos you pick)
There are some photos that no one wants to see.
And if you upload them to your profile, Tinder will ban you for it.
Emotipenises are fine, photos of your penis are not.
Another type of photo that most people really DON’T like to see is the gruesome type.
You know, like when you pose next to a dead animal that you just shot through the neck.
Here’s what Tinder said:
Loud and clear.
5. Being underage
Here’s a statement from Tinder in 2016:
Even just joking about being underage is bannable.
I put this to the test for you in this video:
No one likes their inbox spammed.
And Tinder doesn’t like their servers flooded or their customers annoyed.
IMPORTANT: One type of spamming that you can get banned for is copying one line, and pasting it in all your chats.
No bueno, compadre.
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 choose to buy ads featured in between profiles.
So if you get caught promoting anything but yourself as a cool human being, you’ll get banned from Tinder.
9. Getting reported multiple times
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 its 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
There are multiple to unban yourself from Tinder and all of them vary per device. Android vs iPhone, web client, phone, etc.
But there’s one important rule to keep in mind no matter what device you use:
Never use information that Tinder can link to your old banned profile.
Because if Tinder’s army of robots recognizes you, you’ll be crushed by their banhammer.
So what info could potentially link your new account to your banned account?
- Your phone number.
- Your IP address.
- Your Google account/Apple ID.
- Your photos.
- Your social media (Spotify, Facebook, Instagram).
- And if you bought anything, your credit card or paypal information.
What does that mean?
You need to replace all the above items.
Let’s explain how, step by step.
Step #1: Delete Tinder
Open Tinder and go to settings.
Scroll all the way down and hit ‘Delete Account’.
Confirm by clicking the greyed-out button at the bottom.
Your account is now GONE-ZO.
Finally delete the app from your phone.
Step #2: Remove Facebook from your account
Open the Facebook account linked to your profile.
Click the downward-facing arrow and go to ‘Settings’.
Sift through the menu on the left and click on ‘Apps and websites’.
Search for the Tinder icon, check the box at the far right and press ‘Remove’.
Confirm the action.
Step #3: Replace your SIM
Buy a new SIM card.
Ideally, your phone has two SIM slots.
If not, no worries.
You only need the new sim card to receive a code from Tinder that activates your account.
So once you’ve activated your account, you can replace the new SIM card with your usual card.
But be careful NOT to lose your Tinder SIM card.
Eventually, Tinder will ask you to re-authenticate your Tinder with a new code.
So keep your new SIM somewhere safe.
Step #4: Create a new Google account or Apple ID
This step is pretty self-explanatory.
If you need help, simply Google your question.
Plenty of people have probably answered your question in detail.
Step #5: Download Tinder again
Only download Tinder through your Google account or Apple ID IF…
You have a different IP address.
Does that sound too technical?
Relax, it’s easy.
Simply walk up to your router and unplug it.
Now wait 30 to 60 seconds and plug the cable back in.
Presto, you have a new IP address.
Step #6: Setup your new Tinder account
Don’t think you’re already in the clear!
If you’re not careful, all your hard work will have been for nothing.
What am I talking about?
Your photos and social media!
You CANNOT reuse any of your old photos or your old social media.
Planning on buying Super Likes or other premium features?
Use a different payment method!
Did you step over all the landmines?
You just successfully reset your Tinder.
Enjoy your newbie boost while it lasts, my friend.
Perhaps the reset sounds too difficult for you.
Or maybe you simply can’t wait to start swiping and meet new people.
