How To Delete Tinder Messages

Inevitably, when using a dating app like Tinder, you’ll come into contact with folks who think about dating from various angles. Leave a conversation if it looks to be bringing up negative feelings with a particular person. You can erase the exchange if either party is uncomfortable keeping a record of it.

Tinder allows you to remove chats in a few different ways. Note, though, that even if you delete the app, the chat will remain in the app’s database, so you can pick up just where you left off when you re-register with the app.

Below, we’ll go into detail about the three distinct methods for erasing a chat on the Tinder app.

Method 1: Conversation Deleted

The standard approach of erasing chats across all social media platforms is the first option we’ll discuss in this piece. With this method, the discussion will be erased from your device, but the other party will still have access to it.

The other party can still send you a message, and you’ll get it. This is a less harsh alternative to permanently erasing your Tinder messages.

Deleted conversations can be undone in the following way.

Step 1: Open Tinder on your mobile device.

Step 2: Select the chat bubble next to your profile picture in the lower right corner of your screen.

Step 3: Use the “Message” tab to find the individual with whom you wish to end your chat and swipe left on their profile.

Step 4: To permanently remove the chat, click “Delete” in the confirmation window that appears.

Method 2: Discordant with the Persona

Unmatching a user from your Tinder discussion is another option. Keep in mind that all your previous Tinder chat history will be erased from both your and the other person’s devices if you decide to Unmatch with their profile. You and that person would also be unable to communicate with one another in the future.

It’s important to remember, though, that until you and the other individual happen to match again, this process is permanent.

Following these steps, you can remove a profile from your Tinder feed.

Step 1: Go to the “Message” section of the Tinder app on your mobile device.

Step 2: Select the user’s message you wish to unmatch with and then press the blue shield in the conversation’s upper right corner.

Step 3: Select “Report/Unmatch” or just “Unmatch” from the pop-up menu to discard the exchange.

Method 3: Your Account Will Be Deleted

Deleting your Tinder account is the only way to permanently erase all of your past conversations and unmatch all of your previous suitors. For a clean slate, where all previous conversations are erased, this function is ideal.

If you change your mind and decide to reconnect with former acquaintances, you can always start a new account and forget the old one.

Follow these steps to permanently remove your Tinder profile.

Step 1: Initiate Tinder’s launch on your mobile device.

Step 2: The profile symbol is located in the lower right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Look for the “Settings” option under the “Profile” menu.

Step 4: Find the “Delete Account” link under the page’s footer.

Step 5: Once you click “Delete Account” in the confirmation window that opens, all of your profile information will be removed.
