  1. Tinder match / conversation data is stored on Tinder servers. Removing Tinder from the Facebook app only revokes Tinder’s ability to pull Facebook data about you, the next time you login to Tinder, it will ask you to grant permissions again but all of the conversations / match history are still there.

    I know because I just hit an issue yesterday where I can see all my matches but nobody can see me – confirmed by three separate people over Instagram who thought I unmatched them. I’ve attempted clearing all caches, revoking FB access, and reinstalling with no help. Have an open ticket with Tinder.

    • Hello Chamberlain

      Thank you for your contribution. No one actually knows the cause of not being able to login. What we do here is self troubleshooting which has worked for us in the past. It is great that you opened on Tinder.

  2. This problem is ridiculous. I’m a crossdresser so understandably I receive a lot of negative attention from matches with people who have a problem with that. My app works for one or two days and then the “something went wrong” bug locks me out of Tinder for MONTHS before it randomly starts working again.

    It’s obvious I am being shadowbanned because of people reporting my profile on an impulse due to their personal bigotries, and it’s clear to me that the only reason Tinder doesn’t just TELL you that you’ve been banned is because that exposes the fact that they are not making any effort at all to actually vet the profiles that have been reported. It’s all automated, and it puts the power to ruin my experience on their app in the hands of bullies.

    • It is really ridiculous. If you have to create a new account on Tinder, try to be specific on your bio the type of people to match you. That way will reduce unnecessary matches.

    • Personal bigotries? Brotha, you may want to ask yourself if you are quick to judge and quick to hate, because that was some judgemental hate speech if I ever seen it.
      Maybe, just maybe, if you were able to get outside of your slightly enlarged ego, and try to put yourself in another man’s shoes for a full second, it might be possible for you to get a clue that when a man clicks that he is looking for a woman, and then a dude posing as a woman shows up in his results, he feels violated because someone is trying to deceive him, and every cell in his body is screaming in horror from the onslaught of the assault he has just received. Keep in mind, he can’t never unsee that image.
      Or, conceivably, you could just acknowledge that Tinder never invited crossdressers, stay off from it, and develope or find an app that specifically caters to crossdressers and whoever else you choose to include. That way you may actually find someone who is looking for a crossdresser, make a grip of money from it, stop having to write your hate speech on places like this, might not have to get over yourself, and stop traumatizing innocent brothas at the expense of your self grandizing pictures.

      • Tinder is a community of different individuals. One don’t need to be personal on his or her profile especially when it comes to cause and lifestyle.

        There are other dating platforms that center on particular lifestyle. But for Tinder, just keep it formal and you will be good.
