No.1 Submit an appeal to Tinder

The first thing you can do when you receive the message that your Tinder account has been banned is to submit an appeal through Tinder support. However, keep in mind that there is no official appeal process on Tinder with regards to issues like this one.

Important Note: If your account on Tinder has been banned and has a subscription (Tinder Gold or Platinum), you should probably cancel your subscription to prevent future payments.

In case you still don't know what are Tinder Plus, Tinder Gold and Tinder Premium accounts, check out our blog post to learn more on that.

  • In case you subscribed from your iPhone or from an Android phone, these are several instructions on how to cancel the subscription payments.
  • If your subscription was made via credit card on Android or at Tinder.com, that subscription has been canceled automatically.

So, you should contact the Tinder support team for your issue and wait for their response.

No.2 Create a new Tinder account

If you are still waiting for that response about your appeal and it’s been a while now since you wrote to Tinder’s Support team, it’s time you create a new Tinder account. However, to make a new account it will be tricky, considering Tinder’s bans which are strict and track down your IP address, device ID and much more.

No.3 Uninstall/delete Tinder app on your smartphone

If you are still not getting any response from the Tinder Support team about your appeal, you should try starting over from scratch. This means that first, you’ll need to uninstall/delete the Tinder app on your smartphone.

No.4 Disconnect your Facebook account from Tinder
