  1. How to log out and delete the app? I cannot log in in tinder to get all my info deleted, as I am being asked to provide my phone number, which I refused to do. Anyone managed to do it? I’d rather be on bumble since they do not require phone number.

  2. I’ve had an existing account for several months that was attached to a Facebook page. Now, when I open the app, it doesn’t take me to my account but rather to a page that says “Verify your phone”. I thought the whole phone number thing only applies if you are making a new account. Why are they forcing me to give them my number now if my page is already associated with Facebook?

  3. I can’t log in into tinder as I am being asked to provide a phone. There’s no way on earth I’ll be giving out my phone number when I logged in using my real facebook (what a stupid thing I’ve done), They collect enough information on people and make enough money out of misusing people info. SO is there a way on how to use tinder without giving out my phone? Otherwise, this app becomes worthless.

  4. Are there no cons to logging in from your phone number? I have an anonymous FB, so will I retain anonymity if I put my number? No accessing contacts? Other people won’t be able to see my number?

    • Well you don’t really have a choice (anymore). You must provide your number anyway, you can just provide a FB account on top of it. But no, other people won’t see your number.

  5. I created a tinder account using my number only. Then one day it suddenly logged out my account. When I tried to login back, I can’t. Is there any possibilities for me to get back my old account? Help me 🙁

  6. Hi SH!:
    I’ve gotten in some sort of “death loop” with Tinder. When I hit “Log in with FB” it pops up “Tinder wants to use FB to sign in and when I hit continue it just pops up the same thing over and over. Trying to hit “log in with Phone Number” just takes me back to the same place! I e-mailed Tinder and they sent me a boiler-plate that was no help. is this common?? Isn’t there a way I can log in without FB? I can still access Tinder on my computer OK. Thanks!

    • Hi Gary

      Sorry, I have never encountered this particular bug. Maybe someone in the community can help? Try the subreddit too 🙂

  7. Hey!
    I created a profile via phone number and then another one in the same way unfortunately,just wanted to check what girls guys see there but now whatever I do can t go back to my original account.Does my original profile still exist and can o sign in somehow?

    • If you used the same number then your original profile will have been overwritten.

      For the next time: You can switch your gender in your profile settings 😉

  8. Hi – I’ve encountered a new thing today whilst resetting my account. I receive the account kit code fine, then enter it only to receive the message ‘Oops! An error occurred while validating the token for text validation. Please try again.’.

    No amount of trying again yields different results. Any ideas?

  9. Even with a Facebook Fake Account I am ask for verification with my mobile number.

    So the infos here are outdated. You always need a mobile number

    • Yes, you are correct. For a while there you didn’t have to provide a mobile number anymore, now apparently it’s required again. The relevant sections will be updated shortly.

      • I have a real Facebook account connected to Tinder so the account is already created. But now when I open the app it asks me to verify my number and I really don’t want to do that.
        According to their help site, Tinder doesn’t currently allow for account recovery or changing the number associated with your account. They said they are working on it.
        But the problem with having a phone number associated with my account, personally, is that I’ve had to change numbers or cancel accounts if I’m spending time abroad and I won’t need it. I don’t want to have to create a new Tinder profile each time that happens.

        • Well I’m sorry Leena, but that is just the reality of things. You need a phone number to sign up and log in. Maybe that will change (again) in the future, but for now, it is what it is.
