Tinder has a pretty simple setup: Swipe left to reject someone, and swipe right to match with them. It's great for browsing casually, but can also lead to some awkward moments if you accidentally make a wrong choice.

Luckily, Tinder lets you unmatch from anyone that you've matched with. You'll just need to open a chat with them.

Quick tip: These steps let you unmatch from someone that you swiped right on. If you accidentally swiped left on someone and want to see their profile again, you'll need to subscribe to Tinder Plus, Tinder Gold, or Tinder Platinum and use the Rewind feature.

1. Open Tinder and tap the chat icon in the bottom toolbar.

Unmatching is permanent. Once you unmatch from someone, they'll disappear from the Chat page and won't show up in your feed again.

Important: If someone on Tinder is making you feel uncomfortable, you can report them from that menu too. Be sure to check out Tinder's Safety Center for resources and guides on keeping safe online.
