1. Is It Your Mobile Phone Problem?

Before anything, consider the following:

Network Setting

Your network may be the major reason causing the Tinder app not to process your request.
  • Kindly go to your device settings.
  • Locate and open the "Network and Internet" settings.
  • Create a New Access Point Name (APN) If necessary. Or Select another APN to be activated
  • Now Turn OFF and turn ON back your data connection.

Change Preferred Network Type

Which Network type are you using currently? Is it 2G, 3G, 4G or 5G? Does your device accept these network type? Use the Fastest type your device accepts.

To activate:

  • Kindly go to Setting from you device usually the gear option.
  • Locate mobile network & Internet Option and Open it.
  • Now, open the "Mobile Network" option of your sim card.
  • Tap on preferred Network Type.

Are you still seeing the "Tinder something went wrong, try again later on Android? No worries, read on.

Turn ON Airplane Mode

Also known as Flight mode on earlier versions on phone, it helps refresh network services, just in case there is an interruption somewhere.

Drag down the notification bar on your phone. You may have to drag double times.

Tap on the Aeroplan icon to turn it ON.

Alternatively:
  • Go to Settings.
  • Open Network & Settings.
  • Turn ON Airplane Mode switch.
  • Now repeat the same step to turn it off after 2minutes.

Reboot Your Device And Try Again.


Use Tinder On A Different Phone

Maybe your phone got contaminated with some ransomware on the internet, and because of this tinder have failed to login.

Go outside, ask a friend a minute on his or her phone, login tinder through the phone and see if the error persists or continues.

2. Check Tinder App

The reason why you are having a problem logging into your tinder account may be as a result of server error in the app or any of the problems below:

Restart The App

There is a point in this. You know, most times Facebook app misbehaves and get some loading errors.

Restarting is usually the first and final solution to get it fixed.

This also applies to other apps. Apply the restart strategy on Tinder And who knows, it might be the best solution for you right now.

Clear Cache And Saved Data

To clear tinder app cache & data, follow the below steps:

First, long-press on the Tinder app icon until it shows up "App Info" or "An Upside Down Exclamation Mark (ℹ).
Tap on it. It will take you to tinder mobile application information.
Tap on Storage.
Now Clear Cache, Clear Data.
Note: Clearing data will erase your login details and you will be asked to enter them on your next login. Every other information in your account is kept intact.
That's not a problem right? so long as it fixes the problem.

Is it Outdated? Update It.

Google apps send "update info" from time to time just to make sure users get to know and adapt to new changes made on recent technology.

Every other app on the internet do the same thing and you won't say; Tinder is left out.

Check on Google PlayStore for available updates on Tinder, you may be missing out. Follow the below steps to update the app:
  • Open Google Playstore. You should see different apps ready for download, avoid them.
  • Tap on the "3dash" at the top right corner of your PlayStore screen. It's on the same box with the Search and Voice Record icon.
  • Tap on "My Apps & Games". This is where all you have installed, yet to install, stuff you deleted from your device is stored.
  • On the "Updates" tab, scroll download slowly and tap "Update" on the tinder app if there's any available.

Did You Break The Law? Read The Terms and Conditions.

A lot of people have been complaining that their tinder account is been banned, because of this, they are unable to login and continue their usual dating 👫.

Every platform has a law guiding them. Without these rules and regulations, a lot of inappropriate activities will lead to the downfall of the platform.

So I urge you to read Tinder Agreement and Policies just to see if you're going against any through your actions.

Delete And Uninstall Tinder Again


Contact Tinder For Help

Unfortunately, tinder doesn't have any contact support for issues like this. But there is a solution.

Tinder provided a Help section known as the "Troubleshooting Option" to fix a common issue like "Oops Something went wrong tinder iPhone and Android Users".

See what Tinder advice you to do below:
  • Make sure you have a strong internet connection or try using WIFI on your mobile phone.
  • Update your app on AppStore (iOs) or PlayStore (apk).
  • Uninstall and re-install Tinder if you've got the latest version.

If you fake your location in the past, tinder discovers, your account will get banned.

3. Try Browsing On The Web

Use Capable Browsers
There are two (2) browser I can guarantee you work great on stuff like this and I have given them below:
  1. Google Chrome- Download chrome from Appstore or Playstore.
  2. Mozilla Firefox -Download firefox from Appstore or Playstore.

Turn Off Ad-Block On Your Browser

Most browsers come with software or plugins that make certain sites inaccessible.

It's even possible that you installed it yourself for safe browsing, right?

The thing is; the plugins are programmed to reject certain codes that allow ads to display online.

But it turns to be that, some websites use these codes to process information and may be affected by Ad-blockers.

Disable Ad-Blockers and try again. Reactivate after if it's not the problem.

Allow Cookies

Cookies are tiny piece data sent from a website to your computer in order to improve the browsing experience.

Now, if your browser cookies are deactivated, activate it following the below steps:
  • Go to your Browser Settings.
  • Under Advanced, select "Site Settings".
  • Tap on cookies and make sure it's allowed.

Browse With Desktop Version On Mobile Phone

How Possible? It's a hundred percent (100%).

If you are using one of the browsers I recommended above, you can do this as well.

Just in case tinder fails to work on the default browser version, you can switch to Desktop view and see how it goes.
  • Open Chrome or Firefox browser.
  • Now, click on the 3dots at the top-right corner of the browser screen.
  • Scroll down and tick " Desktop Site" box.

4. How Do You Sign In?

How you signed in tinder may impact or add to why you are having the log in problems.

I noticed that most of the people who are complaining that they see "Oops! Something went wrong" error every time they try logging in, used their phone numbers to sign in or register to this service.

Try a different option this time:
  1. Sign in with Facebook if you used your phone number previously.
  2. Sign in with Phone number or Email address next time.

Disconnect And Reconnect Tinder To Facebook

Once you are signed in to tinder using Facebook, your Facebook account is now linked and tinder will be added to your apps on FB.

To disconnect:
  • Open the Facebook app from your phone.
  • Tap on 3dash on FB app.
  • Scroll down and tap on "Setting".
  • After that, scroll down and tap on " Access Your Information".
  • Scroll down again and tap on "Apps and Websites".
  • A pop-up will show up tap on "Apps and Websites" again. This one is for apps that you signed in using Facebook.
  • Locate and remove the Tinder App from the list.

To connect back to Facebook:
  • Open Tinder and sign in using Facebook.
  • Allow tinder to access your FB account.

5. Consider Other Dating Website.
