  • Hello,

    my account was wrongfully banned on the 23rd of October 2020, since then i am trying to regain access to my account by contacting the support team ([email protected]) without obtaining any explanation why the account was banned. The only information i can provide is that i forgot my phone, and in the next day i recovered it with the "find my Phone" option. I also asked for my data, and i do know that the company still retains unnecessary data including pictures, profile description, MAC address, etc.
    In that period of time i had several accounts blocked, including bank apps, social media apps, Tinder (which is the one that isn't yet recovered) and others.
    As explained in previous mails, i had a paid subscription for 6 months of tinder plus, and, previously i also had tinder GOLD and PLATINUM subscribed. I used the application for many years without any incident, being always respectful to other users, i agreed and read all Terms of Use and Community Guidelines.
    I reside in Portugal (Europe), my account details:
    phone number: +351912731848
    Email: [email protected]

    Will be waiting for a reply.

    With this i do appreciate that a solution can be found to solve this problem.

    Best regards,
