In case a user is spamming you, or you feel offended, and you do not want to hear from them anymore, nor see them in your matching feed, you can block them. Another possible problem you might encounter would be seeing an ex on a dating app, right?
This is why Tinder implemented blocking people from your contacts list. No one would want to run into an ex on the app, or even worse - a family member.
There are basically two ways of blocking users on the platform - unmatching or blocking them from your contacts before you match.

You will be able to block contacts whose phone number is connected to their Tinder account. For them to show up on your Tinder, you don’t have to match them.
