How to enable notifications for Tinder

Posted on

Tinder is one of the best online dating apps, and it’s available all over the world. When you meet someone, there’s usually a period of text messaging on the app before you decide if you want to meet them in person.

If you do not receive push notifications when you receive a message on Tinder, your correspondent may think that you are ignoring them and leaving the chat.

That’s why it’s essential to make sure that you always receive every notification. In this article, we’ll show you how to make sure you never miss a message on Tinder.

Managing Tinder Notifications

To make sure you get all notifications from Tinder, you need to go through your Tinder app settings as well as the device you’re using.

First, launch the app on your device and go to “Settings”, then “Notifications”. From here, you can decide what kind of notifications you want to receive and whether you want to receive email notifications as well.

The next step is to make sure your phone or browser settings are in order. Whether you’re using an Android or iOS mobile device, you need to go through “Settings”, then “Apps” and tap “Tinder”. There, you need to turn notifications “On”.

However, if you are using the Tinder web portal, these settings will differ depending on the browser you are using.



When using Chrome, select “More” (three vertical dots in the upper right corner), then follow this route: Settings > Advanced > Privacy & Security > Content Settings > Notifications. Here you can decide which website can send you notifications.


If you’re using Safari, click the Safari icon at the top of the screen, then select “Preferences.” From there, click on the Notification tab and manually allow notifications from Tinder.


For Firefox, you first need to access the Tinder web portal, and from there select the icon next to the URL. Then select Permissions>Notifications and enable them.

Troubleshooting Tinder Notifications

Some people prefer to use the Tinder web portal to search for dates, but in most cases the Tinder app is where all the swiping left and right takes place.

If you have notifications enabled in the app and on your mobile device, you should be good to go. However, this is not always the case.

As you know that all apps and phones tend to crash from time to time. So you’re always likely to miss a notification or two before you find out something’s wrong. It can be frustrating, but it’s not irreparable.

In most cases, a little tinkering will do. Let’s see what you can do if your Tinder app is not providing notifications even when enabled.

Restart your phone

It’s probably not a bad idea to restart your phone every time you install a new app or change settings. Sometimes phones do not register the change and need a reboot to get everything in order. So, if notifications are still missing, give your phone a chance by restarting it.

Update the Tinder app

What version of Tinder are you currently using? And when was the last app update? If you don’t have auto-update settings, you may have missed a vital update or two.

If the app is not up to date, it will probably start acting up. And here are the notifications you’ve been waiting for. To save yourself the trouble of launching Tinder every few minutes to check for new messages, you can check the App Store or Play Store for the latest updates.

Reinstall Tinder

If you regularly update Tinder and still have problems with notifications, you can try reinstalling it. This process will take all potentially corrupt cache files with it and give you a clean slate.

Don’t worry, messages and matches won’t disappear from your account. Once you log in again, everything will be there as before. And you will probably start receiving the notifications.

Check your internet connection

In some cases, the Tinder notification issue may occur due to poor internet connection. Or a complete lack of it. If the Wi-Fi network loses signal, your notifications will either be delayed or not come at all.

The same goes for data usage when you’re on the go. In some places the service will be more reliable than in others. Also, you might be out of data and not even realize it. So, make sure this is not the reason why your notifications are not working.

Never miss a Tinder match

The world of online dating is fast-paced, and sometimes you slip up before you think. But sometimes you meet someone you like.

The anticipation of a message or a new match is exciting, and it’s a shame someone misses it due to notifications issues.

Just make sure the Tinder app and your mobile device know to send push notifications. And if you’re having trouble, check the app, your phone, and your internet connection.
