Did you Swipe Right on Tinder and meet someone you’d like to date exclusively?
If so, congratulations are in order and you’re not alone.
Tinder reports 10 matches to date and 1.4 billion swipes every day.
Still, we get contacted several times a week when someone thinks their boyfriend or girlfriend is cheating on them because his or her Tinder profile is still active. Typically a friend notices it and wonders if there’s trouble in paradise.

Before you start accusing your S.O. that they’ve been sneaking around and before you do something drastic like sneak a peek at their phone, as a Tinder Expert, I need to share with you that there’s a huge DIFFERENCE between REMOVING Tinder off your mobile phone, which is what the majority of people do, and actually DELETING Tinder through their app while it’s still on the phone.
The former will result in your profile still being active for others to see and it sends a message that you’re single and hoping someone will be swiping right in anticipation of a match and to meeting IRL. The latter disables your account and your Tinder profile will no longer be viewed by others who are swiping and matching.
Got it? So here’s how to fix it.
How to Delete Tinder
- If you’ve already taken Tinder off your mobile phone, download the app again and sign in.
- Once you’re signed in, on the top left side, click on the icon to view your profile
- Once your profile is on the screen, click on the grey gear symbol in the middle of the screen.
- This brings you to a “Settings” page. Scroll to the bottom of the page, where you will see the option to “Logout” or “Delete Account.” Select Delete Account.
- You will receive a message that says, “Account successfully deleted.”
