What is a shadowban on Tinder
A shadowban is when Tinder limits your capabilities to use the app without alerting you. Tinder might limit the amount of girls shown, stop messages from being sent, or not show your profile to other users.

Tinder shadowbans for two main reasons.

If you don’t reset properly and continue to reset your profile over and over again, Tinder is going to catch on and shadowban you.
Tinder sometimes warns you, but if you keep on violating the rules, you will either be banned or shadowbanned.

Reset your profile correctly
New Phone Number or Facebook
When making a new profile, make sure to set it up with a new phone number or facebook account.
New Google play if used paid features
If you used paid features on your Tinder account, you need to create a new google play account when downloading the app again.
New account boost Vs Shadowban
When you first set up a Tinder account, you are going to get a boost. You’ll get a lot more matches, likes, and messages will be flowing. This will eventually stop. You didn’t get shadowbanned, it’s just how Tinder works.

A total ban (40303 Error) will not allow you to log into the account or use any of Tinder’s features. On the other hand, a shadowban, you can still use your account, see your matches, and swipe.
