Interested in doing a reverse image search on Tinder?

Learn how to search and find the best results, without letting another user know you’re looking at their profile!
What is Tinder? The History of the App
Tinder has revolutionized dating by giving users a quick and easy way to swipe their way to a new relationship. Within minutes of signing up for the Tinder app, people can swipe left (Not interested) or swipe right (Interested) on users and find their next date.
The speed of app dating is often described as fun and similar to that of a video game. However, the rate can also lead to rash, impulsive decisions to meet someone you barely know without getting to know more about them.
Fact: Anyone can pretend to be someone else when they use an app like Tinder. While many apps are coming up with innovative ways to verify profile identity, until you’ve met someone in person and know them well, there is always a risk. Whether you’re interested in app dating for casual or serious love and connection, there may come a time when you want to search by image.
Many times, married or attached people download the app without their partner ever knowing. Here is how you can reverse image search a Tinder profile and find who you’re looking for, even if they don’t want you to know!
Reverse Image Search on Tinder
Search by Image
Take a screenshot of a user’s best profile picture(s). Remove (crop out) any social media or Tinder logos, or background graphics that aren’t part of the original image. Enter the picture or pictures you want to search into the search field on Social Catfish. This will allow you to scan the web and find duplicates of the image online.
The search results might link you to business websites, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and dating platforms, etc. Once you search by image, you might find a user’s name, username, and other details. You can also enter those additional details into the search field at Social Catfish and find out even more about them.
Before meeting someone in person, ask for their name. While women might be hesitant to provide you with their full name – for safety reasons – many people don’t mind sharing that information. Once you have their name, search for it on Social Catfish and see if the profiles and photographs that show in the results match other images of who you are looking for. If you discover more of their photos, enter those images on Social Catfish to search for additional hidden profiles.
Tinder profiles may show a user’s Instagram or Spotify page, etc. Look at the username associated with those accounts. Many people use the same username all across the web. Search by username on Social Catfish and find hidden accounts or who you’re dealing. You can also screenshot their profile photo on Spotify or any of their Instagram selfies, and search those.
A username and reverse photo search can be the most helpful if you suspect your partner is cheating on your via the Tinder app!
Use What You Find!
After you find out a user’s name and other information discovered through a reverse image search, make use of that information. Or, perhaps you aren’t sure if they have a Tinder profile but do know their age, location, and other details. Enter those demographics as what you’re looking for on Tinder and see if you get a match.
While app dating can be a great addition to a busy life, it is worth doing a Social Catfish reverse image search before you trust someone you meet online, especially since they might be a catfish.
Why guess or hope for the best when you can find out for sure?
