  • Tap the profile icon on the top left and then click on > Settings > Delete Account.
  • The next screen will give you the option to
    • pause Tinder for some time
    • completely delete the Tinder account or deactivate the account.
  • Choose delete, verify with your password, and your account will be gone forever.

The pause option is useful if you are only bored out of using the Tinder app. It will stop any notification that you receive over email or app. The best is that you logout out of the app. When you delete an account, you will permanently lose your matches, messages, and other information associated with your account.

You can always subscribe back to them once you reactivate Tinder.
