UPDATE: 3:42 a.m. EDT — Tinder has deleted its earlier tweet that informed people of its dating app facing problems, and along with the fact that there are no new reports of users facing issues, it seems like the service is back up and running.
UPDATE: 3:30 a.m. EDT — More and more users are reporting dating app Tinder is working again for them, but not all are happy.
UPDATE: 3:15 a.m. EDT — There are still some Tinder users reporting the dating app crashed and deleted all their matches but there are also others who said logging out and back in fixed the issue for them.
UPDATE: 2:50 a.m. EDT — Fewer complaints of dating app Tinder being down are coming in now, but there are still many users reporting problems, especially losing their matches and conversations.
According to some users (commenting on downdetector.com) who managed to recover their matches, if you log out of the app and log in again, several times, you may get your connections and conversations back.
And then there are some who are having a laugh at the expense of all those frustrated Tinder users.
UPDATE: 2:15 a.m. EDT — There are still conflicting reports coming in about the status of Tinder, with more users saying their matches and conversations on the dating app are restored.
Clearly, some were so excited they couldn't even finish the sentence they were writing.
Problems with the app are still far from over, though.
Some users called it a sign, perhaps to stop using the service.
And as always, there were those who took the funny view.
UPDATE: 1:55 a.m. EDT — More Tinder users from around the country and the world are reporting about their matches being restored. On downdetector.com, a user from California reported getting back all messages after five hours of outage, while a user in Latvia said her service was restored after 12 hours, though the app was still slow.
However, some others are still unable to access the app.
UPDATE: 1:40 a.m. EDT — There are more reports coming in of users’ matches being restores but problems still continue.
Some other dating apps took the opportunity to advertise.
Dating app Tinder crashed Monday, the second time it has been down in just over two months, and several users reported losing their matches. The company acknowledged the problem on Twitter several hours ago but hasn’t announced a solution yet.
Users were quick to vent their frustration at the loss of matches on social media.
However, there is some hope if you are among the affected users. There were reports of matches coming back, and some users on downdetector.com said it happened after they logged out and logged back in several times.
Since there is no official word from Tinder about a solution so far, the problem is far from resolved. Many users are still unable to log in to the app, and even when logged in, are unable to see their matches and conversations.
