What won't you find on Tinder?

Steps before reseting

Before you spend too much time trying to find out if someone is on Tinder, you should make sure you'll be getting the information you want if they turn up.

Tinder protects people's privacy, so even if you find someone's profile you won't find their email address, their phone number, or their exact location.

a few warnings

A few warnings

ROAST, make your profile work

Because Tinder doesn't have a search feature, all the tricks for finding someone's Tinder profile involve using other methods or even third-party apps. Any of these hacks could potentially get you banned from Tinder, and getting unbanned is a hassle.

So before you decide to search Tinder, think long and hard about how important it is to you.

Is there another way to get the information you're looking for? Could it be good enough to simply use Tinder the way it was intended?

If you're still determined to find a way, keep reading.

It's hard to know what makes you look attractive on dating apps, and even harder to make the changes needed to get more matches.

You've probably heard that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder," but what does that mean when it comes to your dating profile? Without help, it can be tough to know what works - and what doesn't.

Thanks to our A.I. trained by 100+ hot girls, you can access personalized advice to make your profile more attractive - in just 2 minutes - and chat with our dating experts. We've already helped over 15,000+ people to get more matches.

the oldfashioned way

The old-fashioned way

Two things before reseting your account

The best way to use Tinder is the way it was intended, by signing up for a Tinder account, making a Tinder profile, and swiping through Tinder users until you get matches.

If your only interest is to find out if someone is already on Tinder, you can still use this method. It might not be fast, but it has a good chance of working.

If you don't already have Tinder installed, you'll need to sign up for a new Tinder account. Decide what Tinder name you want to use, as this will be visible.

If you're trying to be anonymous, you may need to make dummy social media profiles to link to or simply use a throw-away phone number to sign up.

Tinder will require you to have a profile photo, and it's supposed to be a photo of yourself. But people often upload memes or other pictures and don't get caught right away.

Again, if you're not looking to make a real match, it doesn't matter what pictures you use, or whether you fill out a profile bio.

Once you're up and running, you just swipe! If you've got your eye out for just one Tinder user, you won't have to spend much time on each profile. Just long enough to see if it's the person's profile you're looking for.

Since you're not looking for matches, you can just keep swiping left to move through the profiles. Eventually, you'll work through all the profiles in your area.

A few caveats:

  • Tinder is location-based, so this system will only work if you're in the same location as the person you're looking for. If they live somewhere else, you'll need a paid account, like Tinder Gold, to set your search to a new location.

  • Tinder shows the profiles that match your dating search criteria. So when you make your account, you'll have to base it on as much information as you have about the preferences of the person you're searching for. At a minimum, your account will have to be listed as the gender they want to date, as well as falling within the age range they're looking for.

It's hard to know what makes you look attractive on dating apps, and even harder to make the changes needed to get more matches.

Obviously, for the above method, you'll need to create a Tinder profile to search within the app.

Most people put a lot of time and effort into their job, but don't think about how they can improve their love life at the same time.

How many hours are you spending every week swiping for... nothing?

thirdparty apps

Third-party apps

Steps before reseting

We told you once but we'll tell you again in case you skipped ahead, using third-party apps can get you banned from Tinder. But if you're willing to take the risk, apps like CheaterBuster and Social Catfish can be used to perform a Tinder search.

CheaterBuster

CheaterBuster is a paid tool that markets itself to married people or anyone with a partner to find out if they're cheating on you. But because the mechanism is the same you can also use it to find someone on Tinder.

To use this tool, you enter the name, age (or approximate age if that's all you have,) and location of the person you're looking for.

The quality of your searches will only be as good as the information you give the system.

Social Catfish

Another paid tool, to use the Social Catfish search bar you'll need either the email address of the specific person you're looking for or their photo. Then you hit search and wait for the results.

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.

using google

Using Google

Steps before reseting

Google is the ultimate free search engine, and that's also true for finding people.

The only catch is that Google doesn't index all of the information that's online. Most popular dating apps hide some or all of their data from being easily found.

The best way of searching for a Tinder user on Google is to use the ability to search the content of a particular domain. When the Google search bar appears you'll type in "site:tinder.com" followed by the name of the person you're looking for.

You'll need to use the name they used when they signed up for their Tinder account. So, either their first name or their username. If there are many users with the same name, the results might not be very useful.

When you do get a hit, click on the result and you'll be taken to a Tinder page that shows the main screen of the user's profile. This should be enough information to know if they're the person you're looking for.

Another option for using Google to search people is to use a reverse image search. If you've got a good photo of the person you're looking for, especially if they've used it as a profile photo, their Tinder profile may turn up in the results.
