If Tinder Gets Blocked, You May Need to Use VPN so You Can Login to Tinder Again
For some countries, Tinder may be considered as a non-family friendly app, making it vulnerable to get blocked by some ISP. If Tinder is blocked, you need to use VPN to be able to use the app and eventually logging in to your account.
One of the best VPN apps is NordVPN. It can bypass blocked websites and apps with a strong connection and security. Including Tinder.
Once you download and connect the VPN app, you can then open the Tinder app and login with your account.
Can’t Login to Tinder? You May Need to Force-Stop the Tinder App
If Tinder doesn’t work properly, you may need to do what most people do when their Android app stop working properly: force-close the app.
This may fix the problem that you can’t login to Tinder, the simplest way.
To do this, open Settings app of your device (Android), go to Manage Apps or Apps. Search for the Tinder app.
Now, tap the Tinder app. Tap Force-Stop.
Tap OK to confirm.
Once, you do this, the Tinder app will be closed. You won’t lose your data like messages, match, or anything else while doing this. You can now open the Tinder app, try logging in to your account.
Reinstall the Tinder App from Your Android or iPhone
Android and iPhone have a simple way to reinstall an app. Usually, you can do this by dragging and dropping the icon to the trash icon. You can then install the Tinder app again from the Play Store, and try logging in to your account.
Some people who use Microsoft Launcher can use a different method, by long-tapping the icon then tapping the Uninstall button.
Check Your Internet Connection
Tinder requires a strong internet connection to work, and also allows you to log in to the app. Your phone is probably limiting how many apps can access internet connection (mobile data). Or, if you use Wi-Fi, you probably need to restart the router.
You can access the Settings app to see if there’s something wrong with your internet connection. Go to SIM Cards & Mobile Networks to see and check your mobile data’s internet connection.
You Probably Need to Clear Tinder’s App Cache
Tinder, just like many apps, requires a cache to work faster. However, the cache isn’t updated properly, you have to clear it to make the app work properly. This may allow you to log in to the Tinder app.
Open the Settings app. Tap Manage Apps or Apps. Tap the Tinder app, tap Clear Data.
Now, tap Clear cache. Tap OK to confirm.
Your Tinder app will be closed and you won’t lose your match or message. When you open the Tinder app, you will have to login again.
Make Sure You Enable GPS for the Tinder App
Tinder app requires location service on your phone to be enabled and work properly. If you can’t login to your Tinder app, it’s probably because your phone can’t use GPS or location service properly.
To check for the location feature, simply go to the Settings. Tap Additional Settings. Tap Privacy.
Then, tap the Location button. You can also choose High accuracy to make Tinder works fine and allow you to login to the app again.
Still Can’t Login? Maybe You Have to Reset Your Tinder Password
Some people register with their Facebook account. Some use phone number to login. But, people will still need to reset their password to make the account more secure.
If you forgot your Tinder password, you can reset it with your email. On the app, simply tap Trouble logging in?. Tap Login with Email.
Now, enter your email address, and Tinder will send you a reset link, then eventually you can login to Tinder again.
Tinder is Probably Down, You Need to Wait for a Moment
If you have done all the things above but nothing works, Tinder is probably down. You can check and open the Tinder website, or ask your friends whether the Tinder app can be accessed or not.
Tinder allows you to login with your email, Google account, Facebook account, and phone number. But, if you can’t login to the Tinder app, you may need to do the above methods to overcome the problem, and finally, connect to your match or have more match.
