I understand both Tinder for making phone numbers necessary and users for not wanting to reveal such sensitive information on an online, dating platform.
We have identity confirmation and safety precautions—both very valid.
I assume you want to open a Tinder account for non-malicious reasons, such as genuinely looking for a connection, getting back on Tinder after being banned, or wanting to bust a cheater.
I hate to be the one to tell you, but if you want to use Tinder without a phone number, your options are limited…but there is one way.
You WILL need a phone number and verification code to open your Tinder account.
If you were wondering, no. You can’t open a Tinder account without a phone number which can then be used to receive your SMS code.
There is no changing this fact, only working around it.
But this doesn’t mean you have to use YOUR phone number (which is linked to your identity) for your account.
So, I present you with the best method to work around the issue of Tinder requiring you to sign up with your phone number:
– Getting a phone number (and the SMS code) from DatingZest’s Tinderophone.
For the low cost of $9.95, you get two phone numbers per purchase, and those phone numbers are uniquely generated to fulfill your Tinder needs.
Come along with me as I show you how I used Tinderophone to sign up for Tinder:
1. First things first, I went to Tinderophone and put my details.
The first thing I did was go to Tinderophone and put the specifics on the page to get the process started.
Here you can see I started by specifying how many numbers I needed and for which platform—I made one purchase for Tinder:
– Many people who are seeking ways to bypass the phone verification process have been banned in the past; upon purchasing, Tinderophone also gives you a guide going over potential causes for banning and how to overcome them.
After clicking on Purchase Now, I was redirected to the Checkout part of the process where I filled in some more necessary info, and after I finished, I pressed Place Order:
2. I opened the link Tinderophone sent to my email.
The good thing about this process is that it’s a speedy one—I immediately received the email containing the link necessary to access my number:
I clicked on it and it took me to the phone number:
I clicked on it and it took me to the phone number:
Now we’re going to the next stage of the process, and perhaps the most important one: creating a Tinder account.
3. I went to Tinder and used my new number.
For Tinderophone to generate a log-in code, you first need to use the phone number on the Tinder platform, and I did just that:
Go through with the account creation process until Tinder tells you it will send a code to your phone number.
4. Wait a few minutes for the SMS code to show up on Tinderophone’s page.
Once you’re all finished up with Tinder, go back to Tinderophone’s page and wait 2-4 minutes for your code to appear.
This is how mine looked:
And now, onto the final stage:
5. I put the code on Tinder and completed my profile!
After putting the Tinderophone code on Tinder, I instantly gained access to the Tinder app:
Tip: if Tinder banned your profile before for whatever reason, I recommend you build your new profile from scratch to avoid being detected.
You already have a new phone number, so all that’s left is a new email address and new photos.
Have fun Tinder-ing!
FAQ: Tinder’s Phone Number System.
– Why does Tinder demand all users sign up with their phone numbers?
It’s all for identity verification purposes: Tinder has had it with all the bots and catfishes regularly joining and wreaking havoc.
Think of it as basically telling Tinder you’re a real human being by using your phone number!
This makes Tinder and users alike feel more comfortable with the platform as the possibility of risk is greatly decreased.
– Does Tinder disclose your phone number to other people?
No, Tinder does not tell others your phone number, or tell the people from your contact list you’re using Tinder.
Your number is purely used as a verification tool on Tinder’s end, and not as public information.
There is a swarm of fake Tinder profiles, and to fix that issue, Tinder HAS TO make phone numbers mandatory because bots aren’t able to use them.
– What does Tinder Policy have to say about using the same number twice or more?
Tinder Policy is very clear about being able to verify only one phone number at a time, which means that you can’t use a phone number on two or more accounts.
And Tinder sticks to its guns about its rules, even shadowbanning users who dare break them.
This means that if an old account is using a specific number, it’s going to stop you from creating a new account.
– How can I open a new Tinder account with the same phone number? Is it possible?
Yes! Opening a new Tinder account with a phone number you used at one point is possible, but on one condition:
You have to delete your old account, or at least unlink your phone number.
To delete it, you need to go to Settings and click on Delete Account; to change it, open Tinder Settings again, go to Phone Number, and choose Update My Phone Number.
In case you come across any issues, Tinder encourages us to reach out to Tinder Support!
But in case you can’t retrieve your account or phone number, or if you have been banned, Tinderophone will come to the rescue.
