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.

How does a Tinder shadowban work?

Tinder doesn’t alert you that you’ve been shadowbanned. Down below we go over some of the signs to look out for.

Why does tinder shadowban

Tinder shadowbans for two main reasons.

Continual reset of profile

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.

Inappropriate behavior

Tinder sometimes warns you, but if you keep on violating the rules, you will either be banned or shadowbanned.

How to remove tinder shadowban

To remove a shadowban, you need to reset your profile. You can do this pretty easily.

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.

Total Ban Vs Shadowban

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.
