Whether you are going through your Tinder to get rid of the conversations you don’t see going anywhere, or trying to free some space on your phone, it is possible to delete Tinder messages. Some methods may be more difficult than others, but you should be able to find one suitable for you in this guide on how to delete messages on Tinder.
How to Delete Messages On Tinder by Creating a New Account
If you prefer to have a fresh start, you could always delete your Tinder account and create a new one. A new profile will bring you a second chance to who you have contact with on the app. Here is how to delete your Tinder account, and implicitly, your Tinder messages as well.
Step 1: Go to the Tinder login portal.
Step 2: Log in.
Step 3: Tap the “Delete Account” option.
Step 4: Log back into Tinder, and a new account will be created.
How to Delete Messages On Tinder Manually
Most people would prefer to keep their profile, so another method would be going through and manually deleting each unwanted conversation. This may take a while, but it doesn’t call for any drastic measures.
Step 1: Swipe left on the individual conversation you wish to delete.
Step 2: Click “Delete.”
How to Delete Messages On Tinder By Blocking the User
The easiest way to get rid of conversations and the people attached to them would be to block users. By blocking a user, Tinder also removes the message thread with that person, and cuts off any contact with them. While blocking people is a lot easier than deleting each conversation manually, keep in mind that blocking someone is a permanent action that cannot be undone.
Step 1: Go to the profile of the person you wish to block.
Step 2: Click the icon in the top right of the screen.
Step 3: Select “Unmatch.”
