Hi, and welcome, curious fella! We’re about to learn how to do a reverse image search on Tinder. It’s easier than you might think, and it’s helpful and, well, handy, if you will.
To be more precise on the answer to “Can you reverse image search on Tinder?”:
A reverse image search on Tinder is not done directly on Tinder. It’s done through google image, pimeyes.com, reverseimagesearch.org, tineye.com, socialcatfish.com, and other sites that provide engines for searching certain images.
You first asked to find a person on Tinder without having an account, now the question is finding that person on Tinder outside of Tinder. You and your requests, Jeez!
It’s not as complicated, nor as scary as it sounds. They’re done in simple steps which I’ll show you below.
1. Reverse image search through Google Image
We will explain steps on how to do a reverse image search for a screenshot you made.
A reverse Tinder image search through google image is done in 4 easy steps:
Step 1: Screenshot the picture of the person;
Step 2: Crop the image so that the background of the app doesn’t show;
Step 3: Email it to yourself, or find other ways to make it available on your desktop;
Step 4: Drag and drop on google image.
As simple as that. Now you might wonder, how does that work?
Well, a lot of people have their Facebook, Google, or Instagram linked to their Tinder profile. And if the photos they’ve got on the profiles are linked to their Tinder account (and those photos were public at some point), you’ll find something.
Even if the person doesn’t have their socials linked to their Tinder account, but still uses the same pictures – you know the time you look amazing in that one picture, and you can’t help it but use every f*cking where you can? – in their socials, google will find something.
On the other hand, if the person is trying to catfish you with pictures of a model, you’ll find those online!
The same thing can be applied to searching on other dating sites too.
2. Using pimeyes.com to search for an image of Tinder
I find pimeyes more helpful than google images for this case. I’ll explain why…
Pimeyes shows you every single picture of that face found on the internet. They even provide you with the links to where those pictures are. Here’s how you do it:
Step 1: Take a screenshot of the person’s picture;
Step 2: Crop it so it’s decent, and the app’s background doesn’t show on the picture;
Step 3: Go to pimeyes.com, and upload that picture
That’s it. That’s all you’ve got to do. No need to find ways to search the image on your desktop or any other complications. You do it through your phone.
3. Searching a Tinder image through reverseimagesearch.org
It’s almost the same as the pimeyes, but there’s something else slightly different that you have to do…
So basically, after repeating the first two steps which are screenshotting the picture and cropping it:
Step 2: Go to reverseimagesearch.org and upload the image;
Step 3: Now you’ve got to choose where you want to search that image. You can see the searches found on google, bing, Yandex, and Baidu. You’ve got them all in one place, just click whichever one of them you want to check out.
4. Reverse Image Search a Tinder image through tineye.com
It’s the same procedure: screenshot, crop, go to tineye.com, upload the picture and find the results.
5. Extra: you can also use socialcatfish.com
You can also use socialcatfish.com, they too have the option to search images. If nothing else works, you can give it a try. Why not?
In case you want to know more about the person if they’re fake or real…
Besides searching for their image on google, or the sites I’ve shown you above, there’s something else you can do.
They’ve got a name on Tinder, cool. It would be cooler if they’ve got a job title on their profile, or even better, the name of their workplace. Why? – you wonder.
Well, that’ll be handy…
Step 1: Go to google.com;
Step 2: Write their name, job title, and name of the workplace on the search bar;
Step 3: Start digging.
Now, if you don’t have the name of their workplace, you can just search their name and their job title. See what you can find.
If you know exactly how their name is, and if-IF somehow on Earth you get to find their last name, AND the job title, Linkedin is the answer.
Why on Earth would this be a good idea?
They could be anyone on Earth! A murderer, a scientist, a CATFISH, lord knows what else.
It’s a way to do online dating safely. They could text you anything, any lie, any truth they wish to. You can take their word for granted, or make competition to a detective and find their online dating profile, hell, become one yourself!
