A partner, or just anyone?
You’re curious, you’re doubting, or you’re seeking… The main question?
“How to find out if someone is on Tinder?”
Well, Tinder has over 66 million users – It is one of the apps that doesn’t need any introduction or explanation when its name is mentioned.
If you want to search on Tinder for someone then this is for you.
Unlike most apps, or social media, you cannot search for a person on Tinder, nor see the last time they’ve been active. However, there are ways that do let you know if a person has been using Tinder.
Things you want to consider:
1. If you have a Tinder account or not.
Having a Tinder account obviously enough can make it a lot easier to check if someone’s on Tinder, or knowing someone’s active on Tinder.
Or if you know someone that has a Tinder account can be just as helpful, because if you’re close with one another, they can help you with knowing if your person, whoever it is that you’re trying to find out, is on Tinder, or has been active on Tinder.
2. Your relation with the person.
Can make it a lot easier if you have good communication with one another since you can ask them, or if close enough, see them often using the app, or other signs about which I’ll discuss further on in this article.
Now, let’s see the hows and the whats and the whatever you need in order to know that someone has a Tinder profile!
3. Tinder gives you the option to connect your contact list with your Tinder account – which allows you to block someone you’d like to avoid seeing on Tinder.
Now in this case you can get a fake Tinder number to solve this problem if you know they (whoever they are) would do this in order to avoid seeing you/you seeing them.
4. You can use Tinder and still be invisible.
Tinder has the option to turn off the “show me on Tinder” (which you’ll find on the settings). It allows you to chat with your matches, and the people you liked to see you, but you will not be shown to other people, nor other people will be shown to you.
If they’re using this [show me on Tinder], then the only way to know if they’re on Tinder is asking them, or seeing the app on their phone.
What indicates that a person is active on Tinder?
Before you get to know that they’re on Tinder it is important that you know what indicates that they’re active. Here’s what indicates that a person is active on Tinder:
- Update of location
- Recently active status
- Update of profile (pictures, bio, anthem)
1. Update of Location
The miles/kilometers keep changing depending on where they change location from time to time. If inactive on TInder, the location on the profile doesn’t change because Tinder picks up your location only when active on Tinder.
If you’re not using Tinder, then your location on your profile won’t be updated.
Even though all Tinder users can choose whether they want to have the recently active status or not, if you see a green dot on their profile saying recently active, it means they’ve been active in the last 24 hours.
3. Update of profile
You notice they’ve updated their profile – they’ve changed something. It could be that they put a new/different bio from the last time you saw their profile.
Or, a new profile picture for which you know has been taken recently, or just compare it to their social media, and you’ll notice dates on certain pictures if they’re the same (on the rest of social media, and Tinder).
Perhaps they even put a new anthem on their profile.
Who are you looking for? – Knowing someone’s on Tinder
We will see if they have a Tinder profile, but first I’ll have to specify a few cases, since if I only explain only generally, you can miss a lot of things afterwards.
To be more clear: we will know more on how to find out if your spouse is on Tinder, but we will also know more on how to find out if a person you like a lot is on Tinder.
These are two different cases, and we cannot put it into one explanation. Hence you will find ways to know someone’s on Tinder for each case specifically.
Your partner – How to tell your partner is on Tinder?
The questions for this part? “How can I see if my boyfriend/girlfriend is on Tinder?”, “How to find out if my husband/wife is on Tinder?”, etc.
- If you have an account on Tinder, swipe until you find them.
- If both of you have your Tinder accounts, see if they’re active or not.
- If you don’t have a Tinder account, know through a friend, cheaterbusters.net, ask them, or look at their Facebook profile.
I will be explaining each of them in detail. Some of these ways to know your partner is on Tinder are cheap, some of them cost. Let’s find out together, shall we?
If you already have an account on Tinder
You can swipe left until you find their profile.
If you don’t find their profile by yourself for whatever reason, a friend of yours that has Tinder can share your partner’s profile with you (of course if they find it).
Here are the steps to share a Tinder profile with others:
If both of you have your Tinder accounts but “stopped using them”
It drives you crazy – doubting what they told you.
If this is your case, it is pretty simple. You just login to your account and see their profile.
If you notice a different bio, a different picture that you know to be more recent, or that green dot on their status activity, you know they’ve been on Tinder.
On the other hand if you don’t see them on your matches list anymore, they either deleted their Tinder account completely, or they unmatched you.
If you don’t have an account at all on Tinder – How to know someone’s on Tinder, without an account?
So, not having a Tinder account is your case. That shouldn’t be much of a problem since you can find people on Tinder without signing up, or without joining Tinder.
How to know someone’s on Tinder without joining Tinder?
- Ask your partner straightforwardly.
- Through cheaterbusters – costs $9.99.
- Find out through a friend – it’s free.
- Look at their facebook profile – also free.
The first method is plainly asking your partner whether they’re on Tinder or not – another free way to find out.
Romantic relationships are healthy when built upon trust, and genuine communication. I know it is easier said than done, but I’d highly suggest you take the courage and just ask them: “Are you on Tinder?”
If they tell you they’re not, and you still have doubt whether they told you the truth or not, you can try the other methods.
The second method is Cheaterbusters – it is not free, but it shows super super accurate results anywhere in the world, plus you don’t need an account to find the person you’re looking for.
You just have to assume the name/nickname they used on their profile, you have to write the age and the location where you think they last used Tinder, and you’re good to go!
The third method: figure out someone’s on Tinder is through a friend – it’s free, unless your friend asks you to pay them.
It is possible through a friend or just someone you know that has a Tinder account and has potential to see your partner when swiping. They get a screenshot, or send you the link to their profile.
Or let’s say you meet up, and you can go through profiles together and see if you can find your person on Tinder.
The fourth method: Consider looking at their Facebook profile – You cannot know that someone’s on Tinder through Facebook unless they’ve got their Tinder account connected to their Facebook, and the Tinder app is visible in their account (friends/public can see that they’ve got Tinder connected to their Facebook).
Someone you liked a lot on Tinder – Are they still active?
How to know if someone uses Tinder? This is a bit of a complicated case. I’m talking about those who had good talks on Tinder, they liked the person a lot, perhaps exchanged socials, but still curious if they’re active on Tinder.
If they stop using their Tinder, their location will stay just the same as it was, their pictures, bio, everything will stay still. However if they told you they deactivated, and these(the location, pictures, bio, anthem) are changing, they lied.
I mentioned what indicates that a person is active on Tinder earlier in the article.
Now, if you’re not seeing them on your matches anymore, it can mean two things:
- They deleted their account.
- They unmatched you.
You can find out which is which through the three methods I mentioned above.
Or just anyone (i.e you’re curious)
Whatever your case is, you’re curious, and I’ll put this one as simply as possible:
- If you have a Tinder account – keep swiping until you find them.
- If you don’t have a Tinder account – use cheaterbusters.net. Or the other methods mentioned above.
That’s about it, really.
Do what it takes until you feel no doubts, even if it is to let them go.
