From now on, there are two ways to block people, so let’s talk about how to block someone on Tinder. Either way is to block them by their phone number or unlink and lock them. Both make sure you never see each other again in the app.
There are many good reasons for both, but the first is the most useful in our opinion. You may not want to see your ex or co-workers. The other method, while not so useful, is still good, and we’ll explain exactly how to do both.
However, it should be mentioned very quickly that blocking someone via phone number is reversible, but blocking a match is not. Once you’ve blocked them, you’re done. So let’s see how to block someone on Tinder.
How to block someone on Tinder with their contact information
This is very useful and we wish Tinder had implemented this feature before. The main purpose of this feature is to make sure that you do not encounter anyone you do not want.
It can be an ex, family or co-workers. It’s nice because it keeps things from getting awkward and not fun.
The best and easiest way to do this is to upload your contacts to Tinder and then select the people who have been saved as a contact on your phone and block them.
To do this, start by opening the app and go to the bottom right corner and click on your profile icon.
Once you’re on the profile screen, click the “Settings” button.
This will take you to the settings menu, where you can scroll down and find “Block contacts”. Click on that.
Make sure it says “Contacts”. You will then be given the option to import your contacts into Tinder
Your phone will ask if you want to give Tinder access to your contacts. Press yes, and then you’ll have your contacts imported and ready to block people you don’t want to see or don’t want to see.
All you have to do is select the contacts you want to block, and you won’t see them and they won’t see you.
How To Block Someone Tinder Directly With Your Phone Number
You may not want to give Tinder your contact list, or you just don’t want to see one or two people. In this case, you can use their phone number to block them directly on Tinder.
Start by following the same steps to go to your profile, then click ‘Settings’ and then ‘Block contacts’. Once there, you need to click on the symbol at the top right of the screen.
Then fill in your name and phone number information, as well as your email address if you have one, but this is not necessary.
Once you’ve done that, you’re ready and you’ll never have an awkward time in the app.
How to block a match on Tinder
Now Tinder has made a great way to change the way we go online. Since its launch in 2012, it has become the number one dating app and, as far as we know, it remains the most popular dating app on the market today.
However, it does have some drawbacks. You slip into a lot of people and end up chatting with a lot of people you don’t know. As a result, sometimes you end up meeting people who are quite toxic.
You obviously don’t have their number, but you still don’t want to see them again in the app. So here’s how to block someone on Tinder after you match them.
It turns out that just untying them, you’ll never see them in the app again. But in case you don’t know how to compare someone, here’s a quick guide.
You want to start by opening the app and going to your messages. Then you want to select the conversation of the person with whom you want to unlink. In the upper right corner, you will see a blue shield that is Tinder Saftey Toolkit.
Click on this icon and you will be given the option to unlink.
Click the “Yes, it doesn’t match” message to confirm that you’re unlinking them, that’s all you need to do.
