We all have been there. You're swiping left and right on Tinder, trying to find your perfect match. Then you hit a wall; it's the dreaded "No Matches" screen.
Have you ever wondered why first? Tinder is a really complex algorithm and only an AI like ROAST could tell you, so be sure to check it out first before doing anything else or resetting your account might be completely useless.
This is where most people give up and leave Tinder for good but did you know that there are 3 different ways to reset your account? In this article, we will be discussing each one in detail so that you can figure out which one is best for you!
If you are banned, that is a different story. And we cover it in our article, explaining everything to get out of that situation!

Here is the outline of the article, feel free to jump to the section that interests you the most.
There are three methods of resetting your account: the soft way, the hard way, and the 3-month rule.
Warning: always keep in mind that there is no magic trick! Resetting your account is useless if you make the same profile again, because you’ll have to reset it again as well. That’s why we created this app that will help you to get more matches in 2 minutes thanks to its thousands of top ranked profiles analyzed.
The soft reset method is as simple as dangerous since it has been overused over the last years and has been flagged by Tinder since. It consists of deleting your account and creating a new one. I'd not recommend you to do it, but I've still included it in this guide for reference.
If you’re the lazy guy that will choose this method, then be sure to make at least a new profile in 2-mn and check if it is adapted for Tinder here, this will increase your chances of getting more matches by over 70%.
This method is the most secure and most efficient one. This is the one I choose every time I want a fresh start (and the initial boost that comes with it). To do a hard reset you will have to change a lot of things: a new email address, a new phone number, a new Google or Apple account.
But don’t worry simple tricks exist for that, and it will also make your new profile rank on top of the most handsome men this time, at the only condition to follow what ROAST will tell you (I have to admit that he is way smarter than me for that).
This method is the most recent one, and one of the easiest ones. The only drawback is that it requires a lot of patience. 3 months, or 92 days, to be exact.
So if it means waiting that much, don’t mess up your next profile! I did it and I can tell you that you don’t want to wait 6 months with no girl while all your friends are dating them! That’s why ROAST is here for you, so be sure to check it now.
Theoretically, you could get a fresh start by deleting your account and waiting for 3-months before creating a new one. But there are a few catches that we will see in the next section.
Have you ever wondered why Dating apps are working for your friends but not you?
It's hard to know what makes a dating profile attractive, and even harder to know which pictures are good or not.
With our AI-trained on 10,000+ pictures rated by hot girls and dating experts, we can help you to choose your best pics and stand out. Make your dating profile more attractive in just 2 minutes.
The short answer is: do a hard reset. This is the most secure way to get a fresh start on Tinder.
But depending on what you value the most you may choose another solution:
I'd not do a soft reset because this practice has been overused and flagged by Tinder to protect its community. Imagine if a scammer was able to get a brand new account by just deleting and creating a new one, would your experience on Tinder be great?
That's why Tinder implemented in the last years some efficient methods to penalize and prevent this abuse. Those include shadowban or further verifications.
I would choose the hard reset 10 times. Because even though waiting 3 months seems appealing vs getting a new phone, it has some limitations.
First, the GPDR law forces companies to only erase your personal data, data that can identify you as an individual.
If your Tinder data relative to your Tinder ELO are anonymized, they don't have to delete it. This means that when you will create a new account, uploading the same pic with the same metadata, Tinder can restore your Tinder ELO and you will not benefit from the initial boost.
We delete or anonymize your information [...] unless the information must be kept for our legitimate business interests, such as fraud prevention and enhancing users' safety and security.
For example, information may need to be kept to prevent a user who was banned forunsafe behavior or security incidentsfrom opening a new account.
If your account has been flagged in the past for breaking the community guidelines or being reported by other users, the 3-months reset will not work.
This means that if you were shadowbanned, waiting 3 months with of hope of getting a fresh start is illusory.
Doing a soft reset is quick and easy. You will find here the 5 steps to do so:
You will find below the detailed process for each step.
Check the following article: Bye Tinder? The step-by-step guide to delete your account. This article will guide you through the steps of deleting your Tinder account and help to follow them.
The main steps are summarized here:
You should wait at least 24h after deletion before creating a new account to avoid being flagged by Tinder algorithm as a spammer or bot.
In fact, creating a new account right away would be a spam signal sent to Tinder and you could end up shadow banned.
So use this time wisely and improve your profile to the next level with ROAST in order to get the hottest girls of Tinder once and for all!

There are 8 steps to do a hard reset of your Tinder account.
The first steps are exactly the same as for a soft reset. Click on the links below to get more info.
Now, there are 2 options depending on your situation:
Whenever you use the app, your device ID is passed through the request made to the Tinder server. Plus this information does not identify you as a person, so companies can keep it even after the deletion of your account.
If you don't have a new phone available, save your data and do a factory reset of your phone. This methodworks well on Android and is an easy alternative to root your phone.
The process differs slightly depending on your device but here is the process on iPhone and iPad:
If you got an Android, here is one way of doing it:
I know, I know… you wonder how you became a phone tech engineer just for getting hot girls right? If this is too much for you, you can just try to rank up your profile at first instead of resetting it and see how it goes. ROAST already saved 15,000+ peoples from this hell so why not you?
Once that's done, the next step is to create a new Apple id or Google playstore account before downloading Tinder. Before we get started, you will need a new email address.
To create a new Apple id, we recommend you follow this tutorial by Apple. Here are the main steps:
To create a new Google account, you can check this tutorial. Here are the main steps:
This is the most important section because one mistake could ruin everything...
The answer is short: clean the meta-data! This includes name, EXIF, size, ...
If you would like to use an old photo for your new Tinder account, follow these steps:
If I was you, I would also ask myself **why did I want to keep using the same pics if I wasn't getting matches?**If you're resetting your account there is a reason 😉
Even if Tinder is a great way to meet new people, but it's hard to stand out from the crowd. You can swipe for hours and never get a match. Why?
The problem is that most guys are using their phone camera and adding one or two photos of themselves looking good at best. This means they're only showing off the things they feel confident about and neglecting everything else. They forget that there's someone on the other side of those swipes who has no idea what you look like in real life, so your profile photo needs to be more than just an attractive picture of yourself; it also needs to show off your personality as well!
That's why I created ROAST, the most effective way to get matches on Tinder.
ROAST will help you create a killer Tinder profile by reviewing your photos & giving feedback on how you can improve them based on our experience with thousands of profiles reviewed each month.
If we think something isn't working we'll tell you why, if we love something we'll let you know too!
The process is exactly the same as for a soft reset except that you wait for 3 months and not only 24h before creating a new account.
