Tinder takes users’ privacy very seriously. However, it is one of the most ‘wanted’ when it comes to searching for people there.
The statistics have shown that more than 42% of Tinder users are taken (married or in a relationship).
That explains why so many people try finding other people on Tinder be it by phone number, email, or just plain username!
We’ve shown that you can find a Tinder profile. Though, this time, a question needs to be tackled!
Can you find someone on Tinder by phone number?
Although the odds are very low, you can find someone on Tinder by phone number. However, you cannot search Tinder by phone number.
That means you can find someone’s Tinder by phone number but you’ll have to rely on external services for that—some of which aren’t very accurate!
That being said, you can’t do such a search on Tinder. You can do it outside of Tinder!
So, how do you find a Tinder account by phone number in actuality?
Well, there are only two ways to go about this!
- Using free phone number search services, which are known to be less effective when it comes to Tinder;
- Using paid services to search that person’s phone number, which is known to be more effective regarding Tinder searches;
Here’s a detailed guide on how you might find a Tinder profile by phone number:
1. Use free services to search for a phone number on Tinder for free.
There are numerous services on the internet that claim to provide highly accurate results for a phone number search on Tinder.
However, those services aren’t free.
This is why, if you’re trying to find someone on Tinder by phone number, you have to start from the free options.
Before spending money, try seeing the easier options first.
You can search with email and phone numbers as well.
If you’re trying to figure out whether your partner is using Tinder, you might find clues with such services too.
It takes one search, whether by phone number or by email, or both, and you’ll be able to see traces that that person left on social media or dating apps.
Here are some of your free options:
- Epieos. Allows you to search for people through phone numbers or email.
You can get the results for free, however, for more access to other data, you have to pay for the services.
- Radaris. It’s also a site that provides you with a free service to do a phone number lookup.
You can search by name, email, phone number, address, or even company!
- Anywho. Works for the US only, and you can get results regarding any information that is visible to search engines regarding that phone number.
These are three of the best free options you could find out there to perform a phone number search on social media or dating sites such as Tinder.
Keep in mind that these sites only do general rather than specific searches!
Unfortunately, an entirely free option that’s specifically designed to look people up on Tinder by phone number doesn’t exist yet.
2. Dating profile search engines on the internet can find people on Tinder by phone number.
Again, there’s a large number of sites online that provide you with services such as searching a phone number to see if it’s registered on Tinder.
Some of those sites are specifically designed for those purposes hence it can seem a little illogical for them to be entirely free.
So, unfortunately, there is no free service that allows you to find a person on Tinder by phone number.
The ones you have to pay for though, tend to be accurate, and it really takes one search!
Besides this search engine there are other search engines through which you can perform phone number searches to find people on Tinder:
- Socialcatfish. So far it’s one of the most famous sites, it has great reviews, and you can do multiple searches not just by phone number only.
- Spokeo. Is also known to get things done, but not specifically for dating sites. However, it’s one of the sites frequently mentioned, so here it is!
- BeenVerified. This one is mostly used to look through public records, however, there’s a possibility it could find something on Tinder as well!
These are some of the few services out there that claim to search dating sites too and not just social networks.
Do your research well before deciding to give out your bank details and make a payment online.
Other more effective ways to search a person on Tinder!
By deciding to find someone on Tinder by phone number, you’ve chosen one of the most difficult ways to find a person on Tinder.
If you weren’t aware that there are plenty of other easier and more practical ways to find a person on Tinder, then I’ll sum them up for you!
Here’s how you find someone on Tinder with other methods other than searching their phone number:
– Do a Google search.
As ridiculous as it may sound, you can actually find people on Tinder by looking them up on Google.
There’s a specific way to do this though! Here’s how you can find a person on Tinder by using Google:
- Search “site:tinder.com name” for example, site:tinder.com james
- Go to Google Images and search “site:tinder.com name” similar to the example above;
- Try adding the username of the person to Tinder’s URL, for example, tinder.com/@james0
Try making your search as accurate as possible. When it comes to simply Googling Tinder and the name of the person it can be an easier process.
However, when it comes to searching by username in Tinder’s URL, then you want to be specific and thoughtful with your search!
– Try free username search services.
There are sites on the internet that offer free username searches. If you know this person’s last name, then you can have an easier time finding their Tinder profile!
One of those sites, which I’ve tested, and saw it works is Usersearch.org.
The site is free, so it wouldn’t cost you a thing to simply search for a username or even a name that could be on Tinder.
Don’t forget to select the ‘Dating sites’ category!
Mind you, this is not a sponsored section! It’s just a suggestion based on experience, testing, and research.
– Check their phone.
A lot of people who try to find a person’s Tinder profile are people in relationships.
So, one of the ways to find out if your partner is on Tinder is to ask them to go through their phone.
If they have the app installed, or if their browser history shows that they’ve recently visited the Tinder site, then they’re probably using Tinder actively.
– Create a Tinder profile.
Another method that has proven to be effective when it comes to finding a person on Tinder is creating your own Tinder profile and starting swiping.
You’ve got to consider making this a fake profile since if this person is trying to avoid you, you’ll be gone with a left swipe!
After creating your fake profile you want to
- Narrow down your Tinder preferences to this person’s features;
- Swipe carefully. Try to not get lost in the process of left-swiping since you might accidentally swipe left on their profile;
An important thing you must consider when trying to search Tinder by phone number!
There is no search bar on Tinder that allows you to search people and swipe on them, let alone a search bar to allow you to search people by phone number!
There are, however—as you may have noticed—plenty of sites that claim to offer such services.
You can find someone on Tinder by phone number, but the odds are very very low.
Those sites that claim to offer such services are the only way to go about this. Nevertheless, not all of them can get the job done.
The worst part about this is that they cost money.
On the other hand, you have to make the payment online and this is about sensitive information such as your bank details and other personal information.
Here’s my take on this!
- Do your research on the site before you give your money away;
- Consider if this person would use a burner number to create their account;
- Ask people on Reddit if they’ve tried those services before;
- Read reviews other than the reviews included in the sites;
Proceed with caution and only pick a way to go if you know it’s secure and accurate! The internet is full of options, choose carefully.
