How does Tinder know your age?

ROAST, make your profile work

When you first sign up for a Tinder account, your age or birth date is one of the pieces of information it asks for. So, Tinder usually knows your age because you told it.

The other way that Tinder can get your age is from the Facebook account you used when you first signed up for Tinder. That means if you had the wrong age on Facebook, that mistake can follow you to Tinder.

Have you ever wondered why Tinder is working for your friends but not you?

It's hard to know what makes a dating profile attractive, and even harder to know which pictures are good or not.

With our AI-trained on 10,000+ pictures rated by hot girls and dating experts, we can help you to choose your best pics and stand out.

Make your dating profile more attractive in just 2 minutes.

Why does your age on Tinder matter?

ROAST, make your profile work

Your name and age are the main pieces of information that Tinder shows on your profile, so if it's the wrong age it could be hurting your chances on the app.

When you set up your account you also set up your search preferences, including the age range of people you're willing to date. Other people are making these decisions too, so you want to be in the desired age range of the users you're hoping to match with.

Most people set these ranges to begin and end with ages that end in 5's or 0's. For example, saying they're willing to date people from 20-30, or 25-35. Some people worry that when they move into higher age groups they might have a harder time finding matches.

So clearly, being too far from the range of the niche you target is a rock in your shoe!

Small aside. Did you know it is possible to make your profile more attractive in 2 minutes and get more matches every day?

Thanks to our Artificial Intelligence trained on 10,000+ pictures rated by hot girls, you will be able to access personalized feedback and tips to boost your dating profile for good.

You will know exactly which pictures are good or not, and most importantly why.

So, what are you waiting for to take charge of your dating life?

the easy fix

The easy fix

Steps before reseting

If you don't want to go through the trouble of fixing your Tinder age through your account settings, you can always put a line in your bio that lists your correct age. Many profiles say something like, "No idea why Tinder thinks I'm 99, I'm actually only 24."

Of course, the problem with that is that the Tinder app algorithm will still be using the wrong age to decide what users to show your profile. So anyone who doesn't have a wide age range set in their preferences might never see you.

The other reason you might use this fix is if you intentionally fudged about your age as a way to cheat the system. People tend to shave a few years off their age to appeal to younger users. If you want to use this trick to get into someone's potential matches, but not get dinged for dishonesty, you can say something like, "Told Tinder I was 33 but I'm really 36, don't be mad."

Changing your age with Facebook

Tinder get more matches

If you originally signed up for your Tinder account with Facebook, that's where your age information is coming from. That means to change your age on Tinder, you'll need to change your age on Facebook.

First, make sure you're using the same Facebook account you used when you first signed up for your Tinder account.

Go to your Facebook profile and click on "About."

Next, look for the option to "Edit Basic Information."

From there it will let you change your age. Keep in mind that Facebook limits the number of times it allows an age change, so you can't use this method very often.

Once the new age is set on Facebook, it can take around 24 hours for Tinder to update your information.

Thanks to our Artificial Intelligence trained by 100+ hot girls, we can help make your dating profile more attractive in just 2 minutes. You’ll get matches every day that are tailored just for you – so there’s no guesswork involved at all!

With ROAST, you can be sure that you’re putting your best foot forward and get more matches with girls you really like. In a few seconds, you'll know what are your best pictures and why.

So, what are you waiting for to boost your profile?

Two things before reseting your account

If you signed up for Tinder using a phone number or email address, there's no easy way to change your Tinder age.

This means if you want to change your age on Tinder you'll need to delete your account and start over with a new Tinder account.

Keep in mind that if you delete your account, all of your data goes with it. That means you will lose all existing matches and messages.

Before deleting, make sure you'll have access to any people or information you don't want to lose. Consider messaging your matches and letting them know you have to delete your account and use this as an opportunity to get their phone number.

Then, when you reinstall Tinder and create a new account, be very careful with the birth year you input, so you won't have to go through this hassle again.

The good news is if you had a paid Tinder subscription, you can still apply that to your new account.

changing your tinder age range

Changing your Tinder age range

Tinder get more matches

If you just want to change the range of ages Tinder shows you when you're swiping, that's an easy fix.

  • Open Tinder and navigate to the settings options

  • Look for the option called "Discovery Preferences"

  • From there, look for "Show Ages"

  • Here you'll find a slider that indicates the upper and lower limit of the ages you want to see

We suggest having a wide age range as your default setting. For one thing, we've already established that it's easy to make a mistake with your birthday information. And it would be a shame to miss out on a great match because of a typo.

Also, you might be surprised by which profiles end up winning you over. Maybe you'll find someone younger or older than you were looking for that's actually a great fit.

Does Tinder update your age automatically?

In most instances, yes. Because Tinder is basing your age on your birth date, the system automatically updates your age each year.

As you saw above, Tinder also changes your age automatically when the Facebook account it's linked to updates, though this change can take around 24 hours to show up.

what about underage users

What about underage users?

Tinder get more matches

Tinder requires users to be at least 18 years old. In order to comply with local laws, Tinder may ask users to verify their age.

If you're asked to verify your age, you'll need to provide a driver's license or a passport to do so. Once prompted in the app you'll be walked through the verification steps.

What should you do if you're under 18? We recommend that you simply wait, and countdown the time to your birthday.
