The Pitfalls of Using Tinder

The Pitfalls of Using Tinder

30 reviews between May 24, 2023 and May 25, 2023.

Tinder is a poorly designed and expensive dating app that is full of fake accounts, bots, and scammers. Users complain about the high cost of the app, location tracking after deleting the app, and shadow-banning after paying for premium features. Furthermore, the liberal bias of the app's "interests or passions" is criticized, as is the lack of non-binary options, resulting in an unfair user experience. A significant proportion of users are unfairly banned without any explanation, and customer support is unhelpful.

  • Weird

    I don’t enjoy how it keeps up with my location despite being deleted, it says I’m online randomly and I don’t get why, my girlfriend gets upset about it because she thinks I download it and delete it when she’s around, and I get upset because it shouldn’t even have my location anymore since I deleted it

      I have never even used the app before. I simply just created an account, put my phone number and email in and then it says I was completely banned. Again, I have never used the app before this so I have no idea why I was so quickly banned. I cannot create a new account or anything.

    • One sided…

      So obviously the app itself is fine. Easy to use. The one thing that bothers me is the “interests or passions”. They are all these left wing liberal passions but none for anyone else. For example: pro-choice, LGBTQ rights, feminism, vaccination stickers on profiles etc… so my question is where is the passion for pro-life? Or religion/God? The Bible? There are plenty of passions on the right that are just completely ignored. The more time I spend on this app the more I realize how it’s just another app from liberal California that’s “woke” I put that I am unvaccinated, pro-life, love Jesus and looking for that in a partner on my profile on day 1 and I got an email from Tinder saying “they don’t approve of hateful messages to other users and if I do it again I will be banned” but I hadn’t even sent a message yet?? I’ve seen profiles say hail Satan, F trump, F republicans, let’s riot and burn buildings down on first date, looking for 3 ways, if you’re not vaccinated go kill yourself etc… but none of these profiles get taken down. My message to other Jesus loving single people - either don’t download Tinder or just be straight up with your beliefs in your bio. Because 95 percent of tinder users have 0 values whatsoever and it’s a good way to weed them all out. Don’t change who you are or your beliefs for anyone. Don’t let pressure from media, social media, dating apps, friends make you give in to the evil.

      I don’t know what was wrong, but they just banned me for no reason I was using it perfectly. Then I was banned. I wrote a complaint they said it was going to go through but no. I couldn’t do nothing about it.

      90% of the people in the app are fake accounts or catfish, it’s becoming a huge waste of time. Tinder needs to do a better job of deleting fake accounts and catfish.

    • Scammer Central

      This may have been the best app at one point in time ! It’s not anymore. And the verified user badge is as useless as a silent alarm clock. The scammers create an account take a picture of them self get verified then change all the pictures to some stolen pictures from instagram. So the verified badge means nothing. The the Tinder team or parent company does nothing to deal with scammer and fake accounts! Almost all the matches I had were with people pretending to be pretty girls that wanted to get me in to an investment scam of sort. Moral of the story to all you guys out there I think it’s time for all of us to start boycotting Match Group because it does nothing protect us or keep scammers off the platforms.

    • This app is trash

      When I first got the app I would get a pretty good amount of likes/matches, but in order to see who it is you HAVE to upgrade to gold or platinum. As soon as you pay to upgrade your profile it gets shadow banned and you stop getting matches, but AS SOON as your gold/platinum upgrade expires you begin to receive matches again. Don’t give these people your money.

    • Lol no.

      The title of this review encapsulates this app perfectly. It’s a joke & not even a good one. AKA lol. There’s heavy prejudice on this app’s settings. Get real Tinder, this app could be WAAAAAY better. If you give both sexes exclusively different ways of presenting their profile, how are they gonna feel equal to their potential matches or prioritized as a customer? How are they gonna be expected to want to message their matches or create a worthwhile profile or really use the app that much at all? AKA; creating activity on your app, driving up more potential customers…? It’s bigoted & just a blatant abuse of power; displaying clear favorability towards how either sex is displayed to the other. It will only get you so far as a company. Do better.

    • Still a total scam

      I ask for only people within a certain range and it still shows me women from thousands of miles away. Every profile it seems just has an Instagram or Snapchat link in it and little else (in other words, all “business women” if you catch my drift) or are just fake profiles. Tinder could do something about this but they won’t; they don’t care. They just want you to continue clinging to false hope so you’ll give them more and more money (and they keep raising the prices.) There are no benefits to improving Tinder for the user because if you actually meet the right person, you leave Tinder. Meanwhile they buy up more and more dating apps to keep the monopoly going and continue making dating miserable for all of humanity (besides the 10’s looking for hookups, of course.) The world is a meat market and if you’re anywhere below the upper echelon, you are worthless… but keep giving Tinder your money even though they think nothing of you.

    • money hungry app don’t trust it Hinge is better

      Decided to try out the tinder platinum service and was disappointed terribly. They don’t deliver you any results even after you paid them. You might be thinking it’s my profile?? wrong. Why is it after using hinges service I can rack up 400+ matches in a month and a half on hinge but on tinder I can't even get 20 within a week and if i do it's only bots? Am I only attractive on hinge but not on tinder? I have the same profile pics on both however tinder seems to not really be on your side. Money hungry app DO NOT buy their services hinge is a better app i promise you. I paid hinge and get 70+ matches a week when i paid them which shows who the clear winner is.. I'm not paid by any of these companies and if you don't believe me just try it (assuming your profile is decent). wouldn't be wasting my time to write this review but people deserve the truth. Tinder is a garbage app that wants to keep you on a hamster wheel in hopes that you pay them more and more. Hinge is actually serious about helping you find a partner. The end.

    • Major Privacy Concerns

      The app doesn’t work unless you enable your location. Not only can you NOT swipe, but you CAN’T even view messages unless you share your location. I have had several stalkers and cannot afford to pay $40 a month just to hide my location and continue using the app. I’m an attractive guy too, yet not going to use Tinder. I recommend using Hinge. It’s way better and includes tons of free filters compared to Tinder.

    • No matches even though bumble gives me matches

      Not sure why Tinder is doing this but every time I have tried to make an account I get zero matches. & I know what you’re thinking, “you just get no matches”, well this is wrong. I’ve had tinder in the past and I would get many matches and I would delete the app because I didn’t want to have it or I got into a relationship but now that I’m single, it just doesn’t work anymore. I even tried swiping on everyone even the random accounts and still no matches. I tried on bumble and I got many matches, so in conclusion I think I got blocked by tinder but I’m not sure why.

      First off don’t bother with this app unless you’re attractive. Second this company is run by thieves. Got a renewed subscription that I know I cancelled only to find it had renewed it self then I got promptly denied a refund . Keep in mind I deleted my account a month ago. Don’t bother with these criminals.
