It’s unlikely your account will be banned for no reason. Usually, accounts are terminated after the T&Cs are breached. Some examples of why Tinder might close your account are:

  • Pretending you are someone else
  • Inappropriate language and comments
  • Racism and sexism
  • Sharing unwanted and inappropriate images
  • Being homophobic
  • Spamming
  • Lying about your age when you signed up.

Can I dispute my Tinder account being banned?

Yes, you can; like most sites, Tinder offers an appeal process. If it is your first account that has been banned, they may reconsider. Although, if it’s not, you’ll have a more challenging time convincing support to give you access to your account.

Depending on what your account was banned for, it will depend on how likely you will be able to get it overturned.

How to appeal to get my Tinder account unbanned?

In order to submit an appeal to Tinder, you need to make a polite appeal to the Tinder Support Team. However, it is unlikely it will get unbanned. But if you’re serious about getting the issue resolved and you are adamant you didn’t break the rules, it’s worth speaking to someone who can help at Tinder. If you’re looking to speak to a human about this, you can seek further assistance by emailing [email protected]

Be sure to be as detailed as possible whilst keeping your email short. After all, they have a lot of appeals to work through. Sadly you won’t always get a reply, and if you still don’t hear back after a month, it’s safe to say you probably won’t.

If you are unable to regain access to your account, it’s time to move on to the next step. Making a new account.

Is it possible to make a new Tinder?

It is possible to make a new Tinder account. However, you will need to take some additional steps.

New sim card

Unfortunately, if you have your number already linked with your Tinder account, setting up a new one will require a new phone number/sim card. These can easily be bought and topped up; nevertheless, if you ever forget your password or need a one time code to sign in, you will need to switch to your other sim unless you have a phone which allows a dual sim.

If you’re looking for a free sim, you can get these from providers such as giffgaff and Three.

Although there are negatives to this method, topping up a new sim with credit requires money.

Make a new Facebook account.

If you’re looking for a free alternative, why not make a new Facebook profile? Unlike the sim card method, no money is involved. However, you do need to set up a whole new Facebook. Whether you plan to switch everything over or have a few friends on a new account, you can log in via Facebook instead of mobile.

Top tip: Make sure not to link your Instagram if it was attached to your old account.
