Want to use Tinder, but don’t want your grandma and your whole high school soccer team to know about it?
You’re in the right place! I’ll tell you everything you need to know to use Tinder without Facebook in 2020.
First things first: If I sign up with Facebook, will my friends know I’m on Tinder?
No, as of right now, Tinder does not post to your Facebook timeline. It’s not currently possible to see whether someone’s Facebook account is linked to Tinder, either.
If you’re feeling paranoid, though, you can go to the Apps and Websites menu in your Facebook settings and change the Tinder app’s visibility to “Only me.” That way, if Tinder ever did decide to post, your privacy settings would prevent it.
Why does Tinder encourage linking Facebook?
Why does Tinder need Facebook at all?
Tinder pulls information from your Facebook account (like your name, age, and occupation) to create a ready-to-go dating profile that makes it easier to get up and running.
Can I use Tinder without Facebook?
Yes! For years, the only way to use Tinder was by signing up with Facebook. Now you can use Tinder by signing up with a phone number instead.
What if I can’t sign up using my phone number?
If you’re not seeing the option to join Tinder with a phone number and you want to avoid linking your personal Facebook, the only other known solution is as follows.
Step 1: Make a new, blank Facebook account.
Use your real first name only.
Step 2: Login to the new Facebook account on your phone.
Step 3: Sign up for Tinder using the new Facebook account.
Step 4: Give thanks that your ex and next-door neighbor know nothing of your dating app life. 🎊🎉🎈
Pretty simple, all things considered.
