How to Fix “Something Went Wrong. Please Try Again Later” on Tinder

First, it is important that you understand what’s the issue behind the error. If you can’t locate the problem, try these steps.

1. Check Network Connection

Most of the time, poor connectivity leads to this error. Check your connection and try using other apps to see if your internet is stable. Switch to the Wi-Fi and try once again. If you are still getting the same error, then the problem is with something else.

2. Update Your Tinder Application

Another common cause of the login error is the outdated app version. The company keeps adding new features to the app. It is important that you update the app to the latest version to keep using the app without any error.

Go to PlayStore or AppStore, type Tinder, and see if there’s any update available. Update the app and try logging in once again.

3. Stay Away from VPN

So, we use VPN when we want to stream restricted content or use apps that are not supported in a particular country. However, VPN can interrupt the app and cause technical errors. So, stop the VPN and try to log into the app to see if it works now.

4. Clear Tinder Cache and Data

Try clearing the app cache to see if the issue is fixed. Here’s what you can do:

  • Head over to Settings.
  • Select “apps”.
  • Locate “tinder” and scroll down to “App cache”.
  • Select “Clear data and cache”.

By clearing the cache and data, all your past activities on Tinder will be gone. However, this might be the only fix.

5. Login with Web Browser

Sometimes, the problem is with the app. So, trying the web version must help fix the issue. You can use the browser to access your Tinder account. All you have to do is open your browser, get to the login page of Tinder, enter your login credentials, and there you go! This method works for most people. If it still doesn’t work on your mobile, try using a laptop or somebody else’s phone to log in through the browser.

6. Uninstall Tinder and Reinstall It

There is a chance you have got a bug in the app, hence the issue. The best you can do is try uninstalling and installing the app to fix the error. Make sure you restart your phone after installing Tinder again. It is best to set your “automatic app updates” feature on so that your app will be updated automatically if the company launches new updates.

7. Remove Tinder from Facebook

Facebook has been focusing on the user’s privacy more now than ever, especially after the Cambridge Analytica scandal. And, when you log into your Tinder account with Facebook, the app collects your Facebook information, which may impose privacy risks. So, Facebook can deny your request of logging into Tinder with Facebook login credentials. One way to resolve the error is by removing Tinder from Facebook. Here’s how you can do that:

  • Log into your Facebook on the browser.
  • Click Settings.
  • Select “Apps and websites”.
  • Locate Tinder and select “remove app”.

There you go! You will no longer be redirected to your Facebook when logging into Tinder. Alternatively, you can remove your Facebook from Tinder through the Tinder app.

How to Fix “Something Went Wrong. Please Try Again Later” on Tinder (iPhone)

Just like Android users, iPhone users might also experience “something went wrong. please try again” error on Tinder. Before you do anything, make sure the error doesn’t mean you are banned from the app. It simply implies the troubleshooting problem that could be fixed easily.

We highly recommend you try clearing the cache first. If you have tried switching connections and every method mentioned for Android users, there must be a problem with Tinder’s backend. Wait for a few hours and log into your Tinder account to see if the issue has been resolved.

Your Tinder Account is Permanently Banned or Reported

While the above methods work for almost everyone, there is a chance you are unable to access your Tinder account because you are permanently banned from the platform. If your Tinder account has been reported multiple times by the user, the company could ban it. This mainly happens when you have violated the Tinder’sprivacy policy multiple times. Here are a few things you can do to avoid the mistakes that might ban your account in the future.

  • Posting inappropriate pictures
  • Using the platform for politics and other inappropriate purposes
  • Disturbing, harassing, and troubling people on Tinder
  • Spamming others
  • Pretending to be somebody else

Reasons for “Oops Something Went Wrong” Error on Tinder

Technical issues are pretty common and they can happen to anyone. Let’s check out the common reasons why you must be getting this message:
