Popular dating app Tinder went down on Tuesday in its first major outage. According to data from Down Detector, users started reporting the issue around 8 AM ET, with many receiving an ‘Error 5000’ message.
Of all the reported problems, 44% of the users were having trouble logging into the app, while about 36% were facing server connectivity issues. About 20% of the users said they were unable to send or receive messages.
A few users also reported losing all matches during the outage. It is still unclear what has caused the outage and the company is yet to give out an official response.
All matches are gone. If we thought using Tinder was a low point, this confirms we're destined to be single af for life. #tinder
