To reduce this type of ‘uncomfortable’ encounters, the app announced this Friday a new tool that will allow you “block your ex” to “avoid awkward encounters during this post-pandemic year.”
“We may not be able to save you from an awkward encounter in a coffee shop, but we are going to empower your Tinder experience,” spokeswoman Bernadette Morgan said in an official statement.

How does it work?
You can block a user on Tinder using their phone number. You must go to ‘Settings’ and there select the option ‘Block contacts’. There you will see the list of contacts you have on your phone and, if a Tinder account is linked to the number you want to block, will prevent it from appearing among the ‘match’ suggestions of the platform.

Keep in mind that the contact you block will never receive a notification about it and that blocking does not mean that you have a Tinder account. Also, if someone has an account but it is not linked to their phone number it cannot be locked. You can also manually add a phone number that you want to block if you don’t want to give the app access to your contact list.
To unblock contacts, just go to the ‘Blocked’ section and select ‘Unblock’.
