Why Use Tinder Without Facebook

  • “Tinder is the world’s hottest app” – Forbes
  • “Tinder has become something of a cultural phenomenon” – TIME Magazine
  • “Tinder solved online dating for women” – New York Magazine

There’s no doubt that Tinder is the best way to get a date, hookup and find love online.

But how would you feel if Tinder posted something to your Facebook account which meant that your friends, family and workmates all found out you were using the Tinder app?

Would you feel embarrassed?

Worried that they’d make fun of you?

Or angry?

…It would make sense you’d feel that way.

Because I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that even though Tinder is mainstream, you’d prefer that there was no way your friends on Facebook could accidentally find out that you’re using a dating app.

And you’d prefer that there was no chance of random strangers being able to stalk your personal Facebook account.

Tinder is doing everything to maintain your privacy and prevent that from happening, but there’s still the possibility that one of these things could haunt you:

  • a Tinder post to your Facebook account being seen by your friends and family
  • friends spying on the apps that are linked to your Facebook
  • Random strangers stalking you from Tinder and finding your Facebook profile.

So the question you’re asking yourself is…

How do I use Tinder without Facebook?

How can I still get all the benefits of Tinder without using my personal Facebook so that I can have piece of mind?

Well the first thing you should know is that the only way Tinder can work is with a Facebook profile.

Tinder requires Facebook for most of your Tinder profile information – the pictures, the name, the age… everything that’s shown on Tinder comes from Facebook.

As we know this isn’t great if you want to keep your personal Facebook account confidential when speaking to random people.

Therefore, the closest you can get to using Tinder without Facebook is to create a new (fake) Facebook account specifically for Tinder.

The only way to avoid using your personal Facebook is to create a fake Facebook account.

Another benefit to using Tinder without your personal Facebook is that that you can control the content that other Tinder users can see on your Tinder profile – you can edit your personal details in Facebook which will then automatically flow through to your Tinder profile.

That means you can change your age, your name and your pictures on Tinder much more easily.

How long does it take to create a Tinder profile without Facebook?

Not very long! You can have your new Tinder profile up and running in 3-5 minutes.

Previously you would have needed to add 50 people on your new Facebook account, otherwise Tinder wouldn’t verify your account and show you the dreaded “No one new around you” result.

You would have had to gone to the Tinder Seduction Facebook Page and added other people who were doing the same thing – making Friend requests or write a post on there saying hello and asking for people to add you.

This used to take quite a while, but now Tinder uses phone verification to make sure you’re real, meaning you’ll be able to use your Tinder profile straight away.

So if you’re using Tinder with or without your real Facebook account the setup time will be pretty much the same.

Here are the summary steps you need to follow…

How to Use Tinder without Facebook:

  1. Log out of your Facebook app (tap More > Log out)
  2. Clear Safari history (Settings > Safari > Clear)
  3. Log out of Tinder (App Settings > Log out)
  4. Create new fake Facebook account
  5. Sign in to Tinder with fake Facebook

There are a few tricky tasks in there so I’ve prepared an easy step-by-step guide where I’ll show you how to set up Tinder without Facebook.

Rest assured it only takes 3-5 minutes to setup!

Easy Step-by-step guide creating a Tinder profile (without Facebook)

Okay, so here’s the detailed step by step guide to show you how to use Tinder without Facebook.

If you have the Facebook app on your phone, the first thing you have to do is log out of the app otherwise Tinder will keep wanting to connect to your personal Facebook profile.

If you don’t have the Facebook app on your phone, you don’t need to do this step.

In the Facebook app, tap More > Logout


You’ll then need to clear your Safari history because sometimes Facebook is logged in through the Safari browser.

Even if you’ve logged out of your Facebook app Tinder will automatically keep logging you in with your personal FB because Safari still has you logged in.

Tap the Settings icon on the home screen of your phone


Tap Safari


Scroll down > Tap Clear History and Website Data


If you’re logged into Tinder you need to log out.

Go to Tinder settings screen by tapping the cog


Select Tinder app settings

Log out of Tinder


Now it’s time to create the (fake) Facebook account that Tinder will link to.

Each Facebook account requires an email address so the first thing to do is setup a fake email.

Head to to setup a Gmail account. Click on “Create Account”


Fill out your your details for the Google email account. It doesn’t really matter what you put in here because nothing will affect Tinder.

There are a few fields that you don’t need to enter – including your number and email address – leave these blank.

Also type the text to “prove you’re not a robot”.


Once you’ve filled out the form tap “Continue” then “Continue to Gmail” then go to the mobile site as there’s no need to download the app:


You should then see your new email account that’s ready to be used to setup the fake Facebook:


Now that your fake email is setup it’s time to set up your fake Facebook account for Tinder.

Open a new tab in Safari and head to Click on “Create New Account”


The next screen will ask you to enter your details for your fake Facebook account.

IMPORTANT: The details shown on your Tinder profile will come from the First Name, Gender and Birthdate that you enter here so make sure you put in the values you want.

The Surname field does not matter so just enter a common surname in their.

Also don’t enter your phone number – enter the email address for the Gmail account you just created.


Once you hit “Sign up” you’ll have your fake Facebook!

But before you can use it you need to confirm your email address so tap the “Confirm Email Address” button:


Then Facebook will send an email to your Gmail account.

So go back to your Gmail account you created earlier and you should see the email come up:


Go into the email and hit “Confirm Your Account”:


Then you should see the green tick which means your Facebook account is complete!


Now all you need to do is login to Tinder with the new Facebook account you just created.

If you don’t have Tinder yet you’ll need to Download the Tinder application and sign in through the new Facebook account you just created.

The first time you’ll login you’ll be asked to verify your Tinder account via SMS verification:


It’s completely okay to enter your phone number here – it will not show up anywhere on your Tinder profile.

Also, you can use the same phone number for multiple Tinder accounts so don’t worry if you’ve already verified a different Tinder account using the same phone number.

So enter your phone number and hit “Request Code”.


Tinder will then send you a text message with the verification code:


So copy that code and add it into Tinder and hit “Submit Code”.


That’s it – you’re now successfully using Tinder without Facebook! Or rather, without your personal Facebook.


Your new Tinder account is all ready to use!

The only problem is you don’t have any photos on your Tinder profile yet… so let’s take a look at how to add pictures to Tinder from your phone.

How to add and change Tinder profile pictures

The thing to remember when it comes to uploading pictures to your Tinder profile is that everything on your Tinder profile comes from the Facebook account that links to it.

That means if you want to add a photo on Tinder you need to add it to the Facebook account first.

Here is a summary of the steps you need to follow…

How to add pictures to your Tinder profile:

  1. Upload pictures to your Facebook (Add photos > Post)
  2. In Tinder go to “Edit Profile Information” screen (Settings > View Profile > Edit info)
  3. While in “Edit Profile Information” tap a photo box and select “Add new photo”
  4. Select a picture from a Facebook photo album to upload to Tinder

If you need a little more guidance, here’s a detailed step-by-step guide that will take you through adding and changing your Tinder profile pictures…

Step-by-step guide to adding and changing Tinder profile pictures

As I mentioned before, Tinder can only use pictures that are on your Facebook so the first step is to add photos to your Facebook album.

*If you want to add photos from your phone to Tinder you’ll need to open Facebook on your phone, then upload the photos from there.

**If you already have photos on your Facebook that you’re going to use for Tinder you can skip this step.

Open your Facebook account on your phone or desktop and click “Add photos”:


You’ll be asked who you want to see your pictures – select “Only Me”. This means when people look through your Facebook pictures they won’t be able to see these photos that you’re adding for Tinder.


You’ll then see the photos that are already uploaded to the Facebook profile – select the photo you want.

(In this example I’ll be selecting the logo).


Or if you want to add photos to Tinder from your phone press the “+” symbol.


If you pressed the “+” symbol then select “Photo Library” and you’ll be taken to the camera roll where you can upload photos that are on your phone. Select the photo(s) you want.

Then press “Preview”.

Make sure it says “Only you will see this post” and then press “Post”.


Your picture is now ready to be added to your Tinder profile, so go into the Tinder app and tap the profile symbol on the settings page.


Select “Edit Info”.


Press the add photo symbol in the big square – this will be your main Tinder picture.


Select “Add A New Photo” (or “Replace Main Photo” if you want to change your main Tinder profile picture).


You’ll then see all the photos that are on your Facebook account. Select the photo that you want to upload to Tinder:


You’ll then be able to zoom and crop the picture.

(Hint: Don’t zoom too much because it will make your photo blurry).

Select “Choose” once you’re happy with how the picture looks.


Success – you’ve added a photo to Tinder!


Then you simply repeat the process by pressing the “+” symbol on each square to add more photos.

You can just use 1 picture or you can use 6 pictures to fill out your profile – its is up to you.

Tip: The top right square will be the second photo that people will see on your Tinder profile, the one underneath that will be the third and so on.


When you’re done you’ll have a complete Tinder profile!


Your Tinder profile is ready to use!

Note on a rare problem that some people have uploading pictures: After following the prompts, Tinder should pick up the profile photos you have on your account. However, there has been a rare issue relating to adding photos from Facebook albums – the album continues to load but nothing happens. If this happens to you, the way to get around this is: when you’re in Facebook, select the pics you want for to use for Tinder, and set them all as profile pics. You’ll then have to reinstall tinder and sign up again (takes 5 minutes) and your Facebook profile pics should be added to your Tinder profile.

The very best Tinder profile pictures to use for more matches

So you’re a decent looking guy, but you’re still struggling to get matches on Tinder.

And the matches you do get are fake-spam bots or people you’re not interested in….

Well I probably don’t need to tell you what it all means because you already know:

No matches = Zero chance of any Tinder dates or hookups

The honest truth is if your Tinder profile pictures suck – you’ve got no hope.

Because in today’s super-competitive world, being a great guy isn’t enough.

Without the right Tinder photos you’re going to continue to struggle.

But here’s the thing: once you start using the right photos it can improve your results in an instant.

Once you figure out the tricks to a great Tinder profile, you’ll have more matches than you know what to do with.

You can go from 0 matches a day to 30, just by making a few changes to your profile pictures.

And luckily, it’s pretty easy to do.

All you need to do is follow the lead of people who are already succeeding on Tinder – use the same tricks that they use to get more matches.

So what are those tricks?

Well, let me show you…

The best Tinder profile pictures for guys

When it comes to the most popular guys on Tinder, there are 10 key qualities that make them super-successful.

All the super-popular guys on Tinder are using the same little tricks – all you need to do is copy them and you’ll start experiencing immediate success.

Here they are…

1. The most successful guys on Tinder use blurry/sharp effect in their photos, like this:


It’s where the background of the picture is blurry, while the focus of the photo (the guy) is clear and crisp.

When you look through popular magazines and see beautiful celebrities, this is the type of photo you’ll see.

And now the elite-guys on Tinder are catching on – it’s something you’ll notice time and time again when you see the most popular guys on Tinder.

It’s no coincidence that they all use this type of photo – the online dating giant OkCupid tested thousands of different pictures and found that the blurry/sharp photos performed the best for online dating.

The blurry/sharp effect is an easy way to get your more matches.

I’ll show you how you can create the blurry/sharp effect shortly, but for now let’s check out the next trick that will get you more Tinder matches.

2. Upload the best photos for a Tinder profile to your new Facebook account.

Choosing what photos to use in your profile is important, especially when it comes to choosing photos that are high quality.

This is probably one of the most critical factors in whether you’re successful on Tinder or not.

Tinder photos are viewed and judged within seconds so they need to be perfect!

It pretty simple stuff:

low-quality photos = less matches

high-quality photos = more matches

As you can see below, a high quality picture will make you look much more attractive on Tinder:


The picture on the left is blurry and grainy, while the photo on the right is clear and crisp.

To avoid your Tinder photos from turning out blurry (like the picture on the left) you need to make sure you avoid the two major mistakes:

  1. Don’t upload photos to Tinder that are small
  2. Don’t zoom in or crop a file too much when you’re editing the picture with Tinder’s photo editor.

*Also it is exceptionally hard to look open and confident from a webcam pic – don’t use one.

Choosing high quality photos is an easy way to get more matches.

3. If you have a good physique then show it off (the right way)

Showing off a good physique is one of the most powerful methods to getting more matches on Tinder. The reasoning for this is obvious; humans are attracted to people who look healthy.

Contrary to everything you read about profile pictures, if you’re a guy with a nice body, it’s actually better to take off your shirt than to leave it on…

Dating, both online and off is about playing to your strengths, and it should be no different for men with muscles.

– OkCupid

An artistic body shot, shirtless photo at the beach, playing basketball shirtless or something similar will work.

But don’t make yourself  look like a douche by using a gym or bathroom selfie, there are much better ways to go about it.


If you’re not jacked then I suggest that you go lift heavy, take a multi, misc and then read the next option.

4. Choose a pic that is a good conversation point (preferably a cute puppy!)

Including a dog in your profile will get you more matches – it’s an easy win – girls absolutely love dogs!


A dog will help you get more matches but it will also help you start a conversation, and possibly get a date.

Have you ever noticed how when you’re walking your dog girls will stop you and ask to pat it – dogs are a great way to start a conversation!

But the real power of this is to use as a launching pad to get your first date. An example is:

Her: “Your puppy’s gorgeous! What’s his name?”

You: “His name’s Zero. You know zero could do with some friends… would your dog be interested in a play date? ;)”

This way you’re creating a feel of familiarity and comfort, and making a casual request to meet up all with a reasonable back story which will put the girl at ease.

The whole idea here is to get your target to focus on something other than the fact that she’s going on a date with a random guy off an app.

Tinder Bio information: You can also introduce your dog by using your Tinder profile bio by saying something like:

My dog’s name is Zero and he loves it when girl’s say Hi to him ;)

It’s a great way to encourage girls to start a conversation with you rather than you having to do all the work. Soon enough you’ll get a number of girls messaging your first saying “Hi Zero :)”

( You can also check out our collection of the Best Tinder bio taglines for more ideas on what to write in your bio, and what not to write.)

Just a reminder that dog photos generally work best for conversation topic pictures – but you can use other photos like you on your boat or you eating at your favorite cafe – you get the idea.


5. If you have a group photos with friends, make sure your friends aren’t as good looking as you

The reason for choosing some non-aesthetically pleasing male friends is based on the psychological Relativity Principle.

When girls are judging you it is all based on a judgement relative to other males. So if you’re better looking than the other guys in your photos it will make you seem more attractive and make you the best choice.

Do not make the mistake of putting yourself in with good looking male company, trying to be deemed part of the good looking crew!

How many times have you seen a profile pic of a girl in a group, and hope she’s the hot one in the middle…. but she ends up being the obese tag along in the back corner.

Don’t be that person!

The relativity principle will leave a subconscious memory with the girl so make sure it’s one where you’re the top choice!

6. Use open body language and show off your smile

Make sure you have a few photos in your Tinder profile of you smiling with open body language.

We all pickup and respond to body language subconsciously – it’s a proven fact that smiling has a positive effect on people’s emotions and the open body language is saying “look at me, I have nothing to hide, I’m safe”.

It may sound slightly ridiculous, but I guarantee you it works. Before she even realizes it the girl looking at your profile is already more comfortable with you… And that means she’s more likely to match with you.

Open body language means no hands in pockets, no folded arms, no legs crossed (unless it’s the leaning back “I own this shit” pose).

7. Looking away from the camera will make you look more attractive, like this:



Looking away from the camera is another trick used by celebrities and models everywhere, it makes photos look more candid and interesting.

Looking away from the camera will actually make you look more attractive – OkCupid found that women who use online dating think men are more attractive when they were looking away from the camera.

…It’s just another easy way to make you look more attractive and get you more Tinder matches.
