How To Get Unbanned From Tinder? Or Get Around It!
Simple Tinder Ban Guide
Tinder doesn’t do temporary bans – at least officially. People believe they do it sneakily (or the so-called Tinder shadowban)
That means a Tinder ban is permanent. However, there is a workaround to this issue, and we’ll also cover that in this article.
First, let’s learn about banning.
How Do I Know That My Tinder Account Has Been Banned?
In the first place, if you suspect that your Tinder profile has been banned, that’s a significant sign that you are indeed banned.
However, the app, your connection, or your device may just be having issues. So, here are ways to determine if you’ve actually banned.
Tinder Error Code A 40303 And You Can’t Log In
Error 40303 is a message that means a permanent ban. It’s an error that informs the user that they are not permitted to use the app.
You will be logged out and will be unable to use any of the features. You will not be able to log in again if you receive this error.
You Receive A “You Have Been Banned From Tinder” Message
This is as clear a sign as can be. Tinder is kind enough to notify you that you’ve been permanently banned. You can receive this message through the app.
You Have Been Shadowbanned On Tinder
The shadowban is similar to the ban, but instead of being permanently removed, you are only restricted or hidden from other users without notice.
Users who have been banned are notified of their exclusion.
Users who have been shadowbanned do not receive any information about their shadowban.
If you’ve received several warnings for any violation and you notice that you’re getting fewer to no responses and matches, you may be shadowbanned. Of course, you can also get fewer to no responses and matches if you’re not optimizing your profile.
What Happens When Tinder Bans You?
If your account gets banned from Tinder, you will lose all of your app-related information. That includes conversations, matches, and everything else.
You will not be able to log in and will no longer be able to access your account.
Tinder bans are essentially Tinder’s decision to prevent you from using the app ever again.
Possible Reasons Tinder Banned You
Tinder bans are becoming increasingly common. While some users may be banned due to violating community guidelines, others may simply be spammers trying to game the system.
Either way, there are several possible reasons for a ban.
The most common reason for a ban is when a user violates the community guidelines. This includes things like posting explicit content (such as nudity or sexual services), sharing private information, or sending unsolicited messages.
Another possible reason for a ban is spamming. Spamming occurs when a user repeatedly sends unwanted messages to another person. This can happen through automated bots or by manually contacting multiple people at once.
- Tinder’s Community Guidelines prohibit the following:
- Nudity/Sexual Content
- Violence and Physical Harm
- Hate Speech
- Private Information
- Promotion or Solicitation
- Prostitution and Trafficking
- Copyright and Trademark Infringement
- Illegal Usage
- One Person, One Account
- Third-Party Apps
- Account Dormancy
How To Get Unbanned From Tinder
A ban is supposed to be permanent, but there’s hope! You can appeal your ban and get unbanned from Tinder or work around the system to continue using Tinder as normal.
Tinder Ban Appeal
Contact Tinder and request to be unbanned. They might be willing to reconsider, especially if you were banned unfairly.
They may not have been fully aware of your situation when they banned you. And maybe they were just being overly cautious.
This will be an effective way to revoke your ban if you are confident that you didn’t deserve the ban.
Here’s how to approach this situation. First, send a polite email asking them to reconsider. Don’t expect an email response right away. It may take some time for them to respond or give your judgement. If you send an appeal, they will review your account.
This is the official way to get unbanned. If you’ve been notified of your ban, make a formal Tinder ban appeal.
Make A New Tinder Account
Before making a new Tinder account, you must delete your current account completely.
You must delete your traces completely, or Tinder will detect that you have two accounts and ban or shadowban both – even your newly created one.
Here’s how to do it:
Delete your account
Open the Tinder app.
Navigate to Tinder Account Settings, then to App Settings, and finally to Delete Account.
You should remove Tinder from your device. Tinder will also ban your device, so this is critical.
Disconnect Tinder from Facebook
To unlink Tinder from Facebook, sign in to your Facebook account, go to Settings, and then look for Apps and Websites.
Afterwards, click Tinder and select Remove.
Get new everything
That includes obtaining a new email address, cell phone number, Facebook account, Apple ID, IP address, and even bank information and a device.
You must not use anything from your previous account because Tinder already knows about them. They will recognize you, and it will be a matter of time before you’re banned again.
You can wait a period of time before going to this step after deleting your previous account.
Download Tinder with new credentials
Check that your device, Apple ID/Google Play account, IP address, and everything else you use cannot be linked to your old Tinder account.
Open your new Tinder account.
With your new credentials, open your Tinder account as usual.
If you use any previous emails, photos, social media, or information from your shadowbanned account, your efforts to create a new account will be futile.
- If you don’t have access to another separate phone or device, you can factory reset your phone through the phone settings.
- You can use virtual phone numbers to create new accounts on the sim without purchasing a new sim.
- To get a new IP address, reset your internet router to default or unplug it for at least a minute before turning it back on.
- New bank information is a bit excessive, but it is only required if you intend to obtain premium subscriptions like Tinder Gold or Tinder Plus with your new account.
- You are free to use an old photo for your new profile if you believe it is the perfect tinder photo.
But, you will need to take a few more steps.
How to Reuse Old Photos on Tinder for a New Account
- Rename the image file.
- You should clean up EXIF data.
- You can find tools for cleaning EXIF data online.
- Resize the image.
This should keep Tinder from detecting your old photo and linking it to your old account.
Remember, Tinder bans accounts to make the app a safe space for everyone, including you.
