If you want to permanently delete your Tinder account, you must do it from within the app itself.
Simply removing the app from your iPhone or Android does not automatically delete your Tinder account. If you already deleted the app, simply download it again and then follow the steps below.
How to permanently delete your Tinder account:
- Open the Tinder app.
- Tap the profile icon at the top left of your screen.
- Tap the “Settings” icon in the middle of the screen.
- Tap “Delete Account” at the end of the “Settings” menu.
- Tap “Delete My Account.”
- Confirm the action – you’ll get a message that your account was deleted successfully.
If you’re a Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold subscriber using your Apple ID or Google Play Store ID, deleting your Tinder account will not automatically cancel your subscription. You need to unsubscribe via the App Store or Google Play.
But if you subscribed via Android or Tinder.com with a credit card, deleting your account will automatically cancel your subscription.
If you simply want to pause Tinder, follow the same steps as above, but this time choose “Pause My Account” when prompted.
You can then reactivate your Tinder account from the “Settings” menu when you’re ready to resume activity. Your profile will not be shown to others while it’s paused.
What happens when you delete your Tinder account?
This effectively deletes your matches, messages, and other account specifics, since you’ll no longer have access to any of it. However, that doesn’t mean all that personal information is immediately erased from existence.
If you’re curious what kind of data Tinder collects on you, you can request a copy of it. However, you’ll have to hold off on permanently deleting your account until you download the report.
To see what personal data Tinder has collected, follow these steps:
- Start on this page: https://account.gotinder.com/data
- Access your Tinder account by logging in.
- Provide the email address where you’d like the information sent.
- Tinder isn’t very specific about how quickly they’ll send the link where you can download the data report, so check your email often. The link is only live for 24 hours, so you don’t want to miss it.
