How to Completely Remove Your Tinder Account on iPhone

Tinder has been introduced on a college campus in 2012 and is the world’s most popular app for meeting new people. It’s been downloaded more than 340 million times and is available in 190 countries and 40+ languages. But unlike most other social networking platforms, Tinder is not necessarily the kind of app that everyone would want to keep using in the long run, and you might reach a time where you want to delete your entire Tinder account and profile. And deleting the app doesn’t delete your account. Follow this guide to find out how to permanently and completely delete your Tinder account on your iPhone.

Deleting the app doesn’t delete your account

Unlike most mobile applications, this dating app doesn’t let you go that easily. Deleting the Tinder app from your device doesn’t mean you have deleted your account. Your profile remains active, together with all your pictures, matches, and messages. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing because you can get back in the game anytime you wish. All you need to do is download the app again and sign in.

However, if you want out, leaving your profile up might cause problems. If you’re dating or are happily married, your partner or their friend might accidentally find you on the platform and ask “Why are you still on Tinder? Are you looking for someone else?”. Your data could also remain vulnerable in their system.

This is exactly why some users may want to delete their accounts and make sure that they are no longer discoverable. Here, we’ll be guiding you through the necessary steps to wipe your Tinder account and profile, right from your iPhone.

Depending on your preferences, you can either permanently delete your account, or keep it in a deactivated state where you’re no longer matched with anyone.

How to Delete Tinder Account & Profile from iPhone
