But don’t worry we are going to show you just how to fix Tinder Error 5000 in under 5 minutes to get you back to what you do best…swiping.


4 Steps to Fix Tinder Error 5000 


Tinder swiping


Check your internet connection 

Visit the WiFi settings on your mobile phone and check how many bars the connected WiFi has. If the bars are low, then the connected WiFi is currently weak and may be causing the error.
We recommend turning off your WiFi. Then trying to launch Tinder on your 3G/4G. If the app starts working normally again then it’s likely your WiFi was the culprit.

Turn off your VPN 

If you have been using a VPN (virtual private network) to make it appear as if you’re in a different location then this might be the exact cause of the problem.  Apps sometimes block access to their content if they detect a VPN presence. Try turning off your VPN and re-launching the Tinder app.

Check for updates 

Tinder Error code 5000 may be appearing due to an outdated version of the app. It might be worth deleting and then re downloading the app to your phone. If you visit the App/Android store of your device, you will be able to search for and download the latest available version of Tinder.

Check if the app is down

The easiest way to check if the app is down, is to ask other people using Tinder. They may be experiencing the same error message.
If you have no one close by to ask, then a quick search on the internet will soon enough report any known issues. A reliable website to check is  https://www.isitdownrightnow.com

If Tinder is down then soon enough their tech team will resolve the issue. Until then, hold tight.

Go Old School

If you are still having problems accessing the app on your phone, you can always go old school and login Tinder using their website. Their website can be accessed through any internet browser such as Google, FireFox and Safari.
