FAQs on Tinder Oops Something Went Wrong Error
In this section of the article, I am going to explain and answer as many as questions I can. However, if there is still something in your mind you can ask it below in the comment section below. Now let me provide answers to the most asked questions on this Tinder error.
How to make a new Tinder if you’ve been banned?
There is an easy way to make a new Tinder account if you have been banned. But the first thing you need to do is get rid of the Tinder app from the home screen on your device. Download and install a new Tinder app from the Play Store. Then here is to make a new account:
- Open the Tinder app.
- Tap login with your phone number.
- Enter a new phone number.
- Tinder will now send you a confirmation and text message and verify the code automatically when received.
- After that, there are General settings you may need to do. Just follow the on-screen instructions and you are good to go.
Will Tinder unban you?
As far as I know, they won’t unless you are their premium member. They can give you a warning and take care next time and may remove the ban. But in most cases, it really depends on the matter. If there is something serious at your end then you then won’t remove the ban. Even free users are not accepting the appeal these days. So there is no luck that can help you remove the ban. The only thing that can help is to make a new account.
Can I use a fake number while making a new account?
Yes, you can use a fake phone number and use some fake number provider website. But I will never suggest you don’t even think about that. At some points, your account may be very important to you. Thus if try to verify your phone number, forget your password, or have trouble signing in. Then, in that case, you will be helpless and won’t be able to do anything to get your account back.
Can I verify Tinder without a phone number?
Absolutely not, you cannot and never verify Tinder without a phone number. So it’s better to use only the phone number you have access to and be ready to get an SMS from Tinder for verification purposes. Alternatively, you can use a fake number generator website but we will never suggest anyone go for it.
