What does Tinder error 5000 mean?

First things first, you’re fine. No need to worry. You’re not banned from Tinder (that’s code: 40403).

Tinder error 5000 means the Tinder servers of your area are probably down.

Which is completely out of your hands.

Tinder error 5000 is usually due to an overloaded system. Which in turn is thanks to a lack of regular pc maintenance.

Before you can swipe or text your matches, you need to be sure what’s going on.

Let me show you how to find out.

How to know if Tinder is down?

Here’s how you know if the Tinder servers are out.

The first sign is you’re kicked off Tinder with the following message:

Method 1: Check X (formerly known as Twitter)

Search for “Tinder” or “@Tinder”, sort by latest message, and see what pops up.

Do you see multiple messages like this one, then you’re sure it’s not just you:

Method 2: Check a monitoring service

You want to visit a monitoring service for live feedback on the Tinder servers.

Some are confusing or not up-to-date, so I recommend using downdetector.

Are the servers down?

The only solution is waiting for Tinder tech support to do their job.

How do you fix Tinder error 5000?

If the servers aren’t down, Tinder error code 5000 has a solution, here’s how you do it.

Warning: it’s a multi-step process.

In short, this is how your fix Tinder error 5000:

  • Step 1: Avoid using a VPN
  • Step 2: Confirm you currently have a good internet connection
  • Step 3: Check if you have the latest Tinder version
  • Step 4: Delete and re-download Tinder
  • Step 5: Clear Tinder app data (Android only)
  • Step 6: (Alternative solution) login using mobile web browser

I’ll explain the steps down below.

Step 1: Avoid VPN

Fooling Tinder into thinking you’re in a different location can cause login issues. So turn VPN off.

Step 2: Confirm you have a strong internet connection

Try switching between wifi and mobile data to see if the 5000 error is related to your connection.

Step 3: Confirm you have the latest version of Tinder

Check the App Store or Google Play to see if there’s a new version of the app available for download.

Step 4: Delete and re-download Tinder

Don’t worry. Deleting and re-downloading won’t affect your account info, matches, or messages.

Step 5: Clear Tinder app data (Android only)

  1. Open ‘Settings’ on your device
  2. Click on ‘Apps’
  3. Pick ‘Tinder’ from the list
  4. Clear cache and data
  5. Restart your device and log in

Step 6: (Alternative solution) login using mobile web browser

Tinder has a web version.

Use your mobile to login via the website. There you can continue to swipe and text your matches.

If you still can’t login to Tinder, you want to try again later.

Don’t worry, bro. You’ll be able to swipe in no time.
