What is Tinder Error Code 5000, and why does it show?
“Oops! Something Went Wrong.
There was a problem logging into Tinder. Please Try Again. (5000)”
Chill, Eric. It’s not you, it’s Tinder.
…Or the internet, or a lot of other bunch of things. But definitely not your fault!
Tinder Error Code 5000 is an error that appears on your Tinder. Usually happens out of nowhere, whether you’re currently swiping/texting or about to.
Here are reasons why this error shows up:
- Your internet connection might be weak, or having errors.
- Your Tinder App isn’t updated.
- Tinder is down for a little while.
There is something you can do to find out:
What to do when Tinder Error Code 5000 appears?
- You want to check if the app is down for a while.
You can do that by using downdetector. You go to their website and simply search Tinder, and it’ll show you whether the server is having problems or not.
Or by looking on Twitter. Obviously, there will be people also ‘panicking’ about their accounts. And will tweet to ask others.
You can also ask people you know if it is working for them at the moment or not.
- Check your internet connection.
If it seems to be a problem with yours that you’re currently using, try connecting with another one.
- Update Tinder.
It is very simple. You delete the app from your phone and reinstall it.
Voila! Updated Tinder right there!
What to do if Tinder is down?
If you’re very sure that Tinder is definitely down, then there are two options:
- Go out, or simply live.
- Wait for it to be fixed
How to fix Tinder Error Code 5000?
If Tinder isn’t down then there are a few things you might want to check:
- Turn off VPN.
If you turn your VPN on (like most geniuses out there) in order to trick Tinder about your location or any other reasons, you need to turn it off.
I know, I know, you want to get the ‘better’ matches from other places. If you’d like to change your location you can purchase any of the Tinder Premium Features, and it’ll allow you to change your location.
Tinder needs to access your location otherwise you’ll have problems when trying to log in. Turn off VPN. Period.
- Once again, check your internet connection.
If you find your internet connection too slow, then you might want to connect to another one.
If this isn’t the issue, then:
- Check if your Tinder is updated.
If it isn’t, then you’re gonna need to uninstall it once. And reinstall it.
After reinstalling it’ll be updated, plus, it’ll work nicely just like when you first got it.
You get the verification SMS, and voila!
Note: you’ll find your matches and messages exactly how you left them.
- Clear the Data/Cache
Apparently, this works for Android users only.
Settings>Apps>Tinder>Clear Cache and Data>
- Log in on Tinder.com
If none of the things above worked out, then you’ll have to try and log in on Tinder.com.
Which is the web version of the app.
You’ll be good to start using your best lines to get them dates!
Also, be careful about fake Tinder profiles. You can read more on that by checking out the link above.
If none of the above seems to work…
Wipe your tears Eric. We’ve got another thing to try.
What if nothing works?
After you fill in the information required, you press submit, and you’ll be done.
Hoping this was helpful, I’m wishing you the best of luck, fellow Tinder user!
