If you sign in to Tinder with Facebook, update your name or age on your Facebook profile and the change should be reflected on Tinder within 24 hours.
If your name/age doesn’t update automatically or if you sign in to Tinder with your phone number, please note that you cannot edit your age directly in the app, but you do have the option to delete your Tinder account and start over. You will permanently lose your matches, messages, and other information associated with your account.
If you’d like to proceed, follow the steps below:
- Open Tinder and tap the profile icon at the top of the main screen
- Go to Settings
- Tap Delete Account and confirm
- If you sign in to Tinder using Facebook, update your name or age on your Facebook profile
- Open Tinder again, and create a new Tinder account
