  • Deleting the app from your phone or device does not delete your account. Your account will still be active and open even if you delete the app. Delete your account first by following the above steps before you delete the app. Otherwise you will have to re-download the app to delete your account, then delete the app again.

  • If you have upgraded to a different version of Tinder and are paying a monthly subscription, deleting the account and the app won’t unsubscribe you from that monthly payment obligation.

There will either be a slide option to remove your auto subscription to Tinder, or a button that reads “Unsubscribe”. Make sure that you select either of those options to unsubscribe from your monthly payment obligation.
