7 Ways to Find Out If Someone Has a Tinder Profile

How to find out if someone has a Tinder profile? Do you want to play detective now and find a specific Tinder profile? Think your partner is cheating on you on the dating app?

And such behavior does not necessarily always have to do with strange “snooping” or spying.

Because there can be many good reasons to search for people on Tinder:

  • You suspect your girlfriend is cheating on you and want to find out if she is looking for sex partners via the dating app.
  • After the breakup, you want to know whether your ex is already looking for a partner again and uses Tinder for this.
  • You know a confident single woman, for example, from work, university, your circle of acquaintances, sports club, etc. Now you want to find her on Tinder to get in touch with her easily because you are too shy to flirt in everyday life.
  • You are just curious and want to research a specific woman on the dating platform to find out if she is active there. And if so, how she presents herself with her profile (description text and pictures)?

Curiosity can take you so far that the uncertainty torments you, and you can hardly stand it because of the thirst to know the truth!

So, in this article, I will share with you the four best tips and tricks on how to find out if someone has a Tinder profile without having to hack the NSA computer...actually, a simple smartphone is enough :-)

7 Ways to Find Out If Someone Has a Tinder Profile

Can you search for names on Tinder?

To make it short: no.

There is no "official" search feature in the Tinder app that allows you to search for a specific person's name, location, cell phone number, and other personal information that you don't match.

In the Tinder search settings, it is only possible to specify the radius (distance), age, and gender as rough criteria for finding a partner:

Can you search for names on Tinder?

You then have to swipe through the profiles to find suitable people on Tinder who meet these search criteria.

Search by name: Only in the list of your matches!

Search by name in the list of your Tinder matches

You can search for names on Tinder, but only within the contact list of people with whom you already have a match.

To do this, tap on the speech bubble icon below to get to the menu with your matches and chat messages.

At the top of the search bar, go to "Browse Matches" and type in the name of the woman in question.

The search results then appear below, filtered out of your matches.

Of course, that shouldn't help you in your case.

That's why you need to dig a little deeper in your bag of tricks if you want to find someone on Tinder — and use one of the following methods:

How to find out if someone has a Tinder profile

Not all of the methods below are free, as some require signing up on the dating app. But you have a good chance of discovering certain people on Tinder if you follow my instructions.

The more precise information you have regarding age and whereabouts, the greater the chances of success. So, let's get started!

1. Enter his username in the browser

The easiest way is to search for the person's name on Tinder using a regular browser on a mobile or desktop computer.

To do this, open your browser and type the following into the address bar:


(Of course, you don't enter "username" but the respective names of the people you want to find out...)

This search via the Internet is possible without registering in the app, so you don't need a Tinder account.

You can try it.

Search for a Tinder profile name using a browser

To be honest, I have to tell you that the trick is not very promising if you want to find specific profiles on Tinder.

Everything only works if the user in question has specified a username for their web profile in their account settings, and it's probably the case for very few people.

You will also need to know this username. Or the person can use their real name, which you enter as a test.

But until then, you can't be sure you'll get the right profile right away-especially with common first names like "Mary" or "Patricia"...

It would be a real coincidence.

2. Use Cheaterbuster site service to find Tinder profile

Use Cheaterbuster site service to find Tinder profile

You can also use the Cheaterbuster service to find a Tinder profile of someone.

At least, in theory, the trick with Cheaterbuster (formerly "Swipebuster") works quite comfortably:
  • Open the Internet browser on your mobile phone or desktop PC and go to the following page: https://www.cheaterbuster.net/.
  • In the form, you enter the first name, age, gender, and location of the person you want to find on Tinder.
  • Then you enter your e-mail address and a password to create an account with Cheaterbuster (if you are not already a member).
  • If you then click on the button below for  "View search results", you will receive the corresponding profiles by email.
However, I would not put my hand on the fire that this method works. I haven't tested it because this online service, as I said, requires you to register with Cheaterbuster and, above all, is subject to a fee.

All the fun should cost at least $9.99.

Is it worth the money only to find people on Tinder?

Of course, whether you dare to try depends on how important the person you want to find on Tinder is to you.

Before you spend the money on Cheaterbuster, you could just as invest $15 in a "Tinder Plus" subscription with a 1-month term and start a search in the dating app using the "passport" function (see below!).

Firstly, this is the safest way to find someone on Tinder.

Second, the subscription provides you with more features that you can use for online dating.

3. Swipe for the person with the appropriate search settings

Okay, now we come to the most reliable method of how you can search for Tinder profiles more specifically. Finding specific people on the dating app takes just a few steps:

Download the app on your phone and sign up with a Tinder account if you're not already a member.

Go to Settings by tapping on the gear icon:

Open your Tinder settings

Here you now specify the distance, gender, and age of the person you want to locate:

Update your settings to find someone on Tinder

Then you swipe through the suggested profiles until you find the woman with her name and profile picture.

A few notes if you want to try this way:

Use the information that is as accurate as possible!

Of course, the more precise your search criteria are, the faster you will find what you are looking for when swiping.

It is better to know the person's exact age and enters it in the search settings. If this is not the case, try to estimate the age and give as small an age range as possible of about +/- 2 years, for example, 28 to 32.

You should also know the person's location precisely to specify a radius.

If you are not sure about the number of kilometers, you can use Google Maps to find out the distance between you:

Measure distance by Google Maps
  • Open Google Maps on the desktop computer.
  • Right-click on the woman's place of residence/whereabouts on the map.
  • A pop-up menu opens, here you click on "Measure distance".
  • Next, left-click on your current location on the map. Now you will see the beeline with the number of kilometers.
  • If the markings are not yet precise enough, you can click on the two endpoints with the left mouse button and move them as required (keep the mouse button pressed).
  • To start a new calculation, click the right mouse button on any point on the map and then go to "Delete measurement" in the pop-up menu.
Did you find out the distance between you? Excellent!

You then transfer the number of kilometers displayed in Google Maps to the Tinder search settings. It's best to add another 3 to 5 kilometers at the top so as not to set the radius too tightly.

If someone is anonymously active on Tinder...

Is the person whose Tinder profile you want to find your partner or ex-girlfriend who may be cheating?

Then, of course, you may not want to be found, so you should take appropriate precautions in the application settings:

There are three ways to remain anonymous as an unfaithful partner:
  • Users of the flirt app can put the cell phone numbers of certain people on a "blacklist" and thus block them in Tinder, similar to WhatsApp. So if the woman has put your cell phone number on the block list, you can no longer see her when you swipe if you have registered with this number on Tinder. For a successful search, you would have to create a new account on Tinder with a different phone number that the woman does not know.
How to still be anonymous on Tinder
  • Tinder users may hide their age and location with a subscription. Additionally, they can set the settings to only show information to persons they have already liked. So, you won't be able to find the woman's profile on Tinder if she has subscribed and made these settings (unless she gives you a like, which she won't do if she doesn't want to be found cheating on you).
Hide age and location on Tinder
  • The woman created a fake profile with a false name and age. She probably uses pictures that don't show her face.
On the other hand, you should take precautions to prevent your (ex) partner from finding you on Tinder. She shouldn't know you're spying on her!

So don't put your real photo online on the dating platform. Your real name should also remain secret.

4. Ask him gently if he is still active on Tinder 

If you want to know if your partner has a Tinder profile, try to ask it directly and politely. I know that this method may seem a little strange or ineffective. But you must first remember that the secret to the success of every relationship is trust and honesty between the two parties, so I assure you that your relationship with your partner will not succeed if it does not respect these values. 

Even though you're almost sure he won't tell you the truth, in the end, you will not lose anything if you face it to know the truth.

Even if it leads to conflict, at least you'll be aware of the truth and won't have to act inappropriately behind his back. If he's honest, he'll admit it if he's still using Tinder and may even provide a compelling rationale.

5. Try to check their last location 

This method can help you in only one case, and that is when you have found out that your partner is using Tinder surreptitiously and promised that he would close his account on Tinder and never use it again; by following this method, you will be able to know if your partner is honest or is cheating on you with someone else.

When a person does not use the Tinder application or turns it off, the application cannot get access to its location. But once the app is launched and starts swiping profiles, the person's location changes according to his movements.

As a result, the location changes without the user being aware of it or taking action. So, if you notice that their location has changed, it means they are still using Tinder. You can check to see if someone's location has changed to see the last time they used Tinder.

So, this location status update of someone is a cunning way to know whether or not they are still using Tinder. Once they join the app, their location will be partially tracked.

6. Ask your friends to help you find his profile on Tinder

This method will be convenient and effective, especially if you want to know if someone is on Tinder without having to join the application. Some trustworthy friends can help you a lot!

Since they already use the Tinder app, your trustworthy friends who use Tinder won't be too bothered by this little request.

For example, you can use two friends to increase your chance of finding the person you are looking for quickly, where all you have to do is send them the name of the person on Tinder and some of his photos and ask them to let you know if one of them found this person's profile on Tinder.

Ask your friends to help you find his profile on Tinder

Of course, suppose one of your friends finds the Tinder profile you're looking for, in that case, he can share the profile link of this person on Tinder with you directly on the app, or they can share it with you on one of the social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram or messaging applications such as Messenger, WhatsApp, or even email.

How to share the Tinder profile link

If your friend can't share this person's profile with you because he couldn't find the three dots on this tinder profile, they can take a screenshot of the Tinder profile of this person and send it to you.

Take a screenshot of the Tinder profile

So this was one of the free and effective ways to enable you to find out if someone has a Tinder profile or not.

7. Find someone on Tinder even faster with a “passport”!

The disadvantage of the method just mentioned: the further away the person you are looking for is from you, the more difficult it is to find their Tinder profile.

Because when you swipe up, Tinder shows you not only the profiles of your location but all the possible locations that are within the range you selected.

And the larger the radius, the larger the "data pool"...

The problem is particularly acute in densely populated regions and large cities, where there are many active users. Logic, right?

Then when you swipe, you will get partner suggestions from all directions and distances, which are out of the question when searching.

In plain language, this means that you end up swiping in the app unnecessarily until your fingers hurt.

To limit the selection of profiles in a meaningful way and thus save time, you have to search for people on Tinder more specifically.

So finally, here is the quickest, easiest, and safest trick to find someone on Tinder:

Find someone on Tinder with a “passport” feature
  • As mentioned above, create a Tinder account (if you don't already have one) and log into the app.
  • You get a paid subscription with a "passport" feature for free choice of location. Tinder Plus is the cheapest version for this.
  • In the settings, you tap on "Location" and then on "Add new location" (see screenshot above).
  • Now you select the place of residence or whereabouts of the person whose profile you want to search on Tinder. Be as specific as possible! If it is in a larger city, you can also define the district or the street as the location, for example.
  • In the next step, you select gender, age, and distance in the search settings. Important information: As for the distance, take the lowest possible radius of 2 Km, so that the choice of partner suggestions is severely restricted. This way, you can find the Tinder profile you're looking for faster when you swipe.
  • Now all you have to do is start swiping. If the person is active on Tinder and is in the location you specified, it won't take long before you see their profile picture (if they're using real photos).
As you can see, this is a highly targeted local search that gives you the best chance of finding specific people's profiles on Tinder.

This way requires buying a subscription but saves you a much of time and nerves.


How to tell if someone is active on Tinder?

The names of potential matches who have been online in the past 24 hours are indicated on the app by green dots next to their names. You could see these dots in your likes if you're a Tinder Gold or Platinum subscription.

Can I look someone up on Tinder?

On the Tinder app, you can't do a particular individual search. Generally speaking, you will need to change your preference settings like age and distance on your account to increase your chances of seeing the profile of the person you are looking for when you swipe on Tinder.

Can you find someone on Tinder without an account?

As a short answer, you cannot find someone on Tinder without an account, although many paid platforms pretend you that, so first, you must create an account on Tinder and then search for the person you want to find either by changing your preference settings or upgrading your account to Tinder Plus or Premium Or Gold to take advantage of some additional features or resort to one of the third-party services on the Internet.

Can you find someone on Tinder by phone number?

The Tinder app does not yet include an "official" search function that enables you to look for a specific person's profile by phone number. However, there are several third-party programs available, such as Cheaterbuster and Social Catfish, that can help you find out whether someone is a Tinder user.

How can I find out if my partner is on Tinder?

To find out if your wife or husband has a tinder profile and still using this dating app, you won't need to log in to access Tinder on your phone or computer. In the Tinder "lost password" field, enter your partner's phone number or email address. If this is an existing account on their records, it should then be confirmed.

How to find out if someone is on tinder through Facebook?

Unless someone has linked their Facebook account to his Tinder account and made the Tinder app visible on his Facebook account, you will not be able to tell if he is using Tinder through Facebook. So make sure to check the available information on his Facebook account to find his username on Tinder.
