Tinder Doesn’t Pick My Location? Android & iOS Fixes

Hi, singles!

Like other social apps, Tinder monitors your location and Tinder comprehends your area by utilizing the GPS signal from your smartphone. It means that Tinder updates your interested matches according to your site.

But there’s no way to hide your Tinder location; you can’t turn off your Tinder location, you can change it, so if there’s no location, you can’t swipe.

1. Restart your Phone

Restarting is a simple and basic solution for all glitches in devices. After restarting, the device becomes fast and runs smoothly. It should be shut down entirely on an iPhone, a tablet, or an Android device. Turn off an iPhone or press the power button to turn the phone off if on an Android device.

After the device has shut down completely, it can be turned back on by pressing the power button once more. After the device is switched back on, open the Tinder app again to see if it’s working.

Dating apps like Facebook Dating might not work/show up causing issues and restarting in such cases is a helpful fix.

2. Check Your Network Connection

Sometimes slow or bad internet connection can create this issue, so make sure your network speed is good and switch mobile date to a Wi-Fi connection. Try troubleshooting your network connection to see if that resolves your issue.

3. Restart the Tinder

Sometimes on the android phone, if any app creates any issue after restarting the app, this problem will solve.

  1. Go to phone Settings
