If you’ve been banned from Tinder, don’t worry; you can still use the app by creating a new account. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:
1. Get a New Google Account
Start by creating a new Google Account or purchasing one if needed. This will be the foundation for your fresh Tinder profile.
2. Get a New SIM Card or Temporary Phone Number
Obtain a new SIM card and a different phone number. Alternatively, you can buy a virtual phone number online. This step ensures your new account is not linked to your previous banned one.
3. Create a Unique Profile
Make sure your new Tinder profile is entirely distinct from your previous one. This includes using a different username, profile picture, bio, gender, age, birthday, phone number, and any other details. Avoid reusing any information from your banned account.
4. Change Your IP Address
You can also change your IP address without using a VPN by connecting to a 5G network instead of your home Wi-Fi during the Tinder account creation process. Afterward, you can switch back to your usual Wi-Fi connection.
5. Changing Your Device ID
If creating a new Tinder account doesn’t work, it’s possible that Tinder has banned your device ID. Many dating apps, including Tinder, use this method to prevent users from creating multiple accounts.
If you suspect that your device ID is the issue, follow these steps:
Changing Your Device ID on Android:
- Open your Settings app and select “General Management.”
- Choose “Reset” and then “Factory Data Reset.”
- Select “Erase All Data.”
Changing Your Device ID on iOS (iPhone/iPad):
- Go to your Settings.
- Select “General.”
- Find and choose “Reset.”
- Opt for “Reset All Contents and Settings.”
Please be aware that performing a factory reset will erase all data on your device. Before proceeding, make sure to back up all the data you want to keep.
Tinder may still recognize you due to the data stored in your iCloud account. To delete this data from your iCloud:
- Go to Settings.
- Select your “Apple ID” and then pick “iCloud.”
- Click on “Manage Storage.”
- Locate Tinder or any related app and delete all the data associated with it.
These steps should help you change your device ID and give you a fresh start on Tinder if your previous account was banned due to device ID issues.
