Social media has become a great source to share thoughts among other internet fellows. Keeping in view of the social media site categories, the dating sites have built their own value, especially among the young ones. There are millions of dating sites available to chit-chat and share thoughts with one another. Tinder is one of them, but unfortunately to use Tinder without a Facebook account is a little bit difficult.
Although the internet is immense with a lot of alternative ways to use this dating site, either most of them are not reliable or might be a little risky for Facebook Privacy and Security.
Since Tinder is a location-based online dating site that uses the user location and suggests its nearby other Tender fellows, so Facebook information is its primary requirement. But not all users intend to show their personal information to other fellows, or they might be conscious of their Facebook Account security.
So keeping all these features in mind, I have compiled a list of all the possible and secured ways to use this online dating app without a Facebook account. It can be easily downloaded for Android and iOS devices.

What is Tinder:
Before taking into account the use of Tinder without Facebook, let me introduce some basic info about this online digital dating website.
Since it is a location-based dating site, as told earlier it will bring the exact match to your interest and location and display it for you. The user can also collect info from other social media accounts as well and can use it on this dating app.
So if you want some chit-chat or online conversions then you can continue using the Tinder account.
This mobile app is available in the multi-language.
Why Tinder is Using Facebook Account to log in:
Well, the question is genuine and asked by many of us why it required Facebook Login to access Tinder…? The answer is quite simple:
- Since Facebook is a growing social media, its authenticity is admired worldwide, that’s why most sites including Tinder used it for login.
- Bots and crawlers are the main sources of scamming ever, but in presence of Facebook Login, all information can only be possible by a human.
- Dating sites like Tinder usually need some basic info, like Name, age, and location, and in presence of a Facebook login all info is auto-inserted that saves time to manually enter again.
- Tinder usually used the Location-based info for the exact match, so Facebook helps with it.
How to Use Tinder Without Facebook Account:
It is quite difficult to access Tinder without using the Facebook Login, but here are some alternative ways to use a Tinder account.
1- Edit Tinder info from Facebook App:
If you are avoiding Facebook Login for Tinder, just to hide it from everyone, then this method is for you.
- Click the arrow at the top bar of Facebook App > Click Settings
- Go to Apps on the right side of the Facebook Page > Select Tinder > Set App Visibility to Only Me.
In this way, no Facebook friend can even know that you are using Tinder.
2-Change Settings from Tinder Apps:
This method is also quite easy to use the Tinder account. Because this method only requires changing the settings of the Tinder App on your smartphone.
- Open the Tinder app on your smartphone.
- Go to settings.
- Uncheck Show me on Tinder Social.
In this way, you will be able to hide your info on other social media as well.
3-Create Another Facebook Account:
In case, you don’t want to share your personal Facebook info with other fellows, then there is an option to create another Facebook account.
So just create another Facebook account (by using another email address) of equal value and of your desired info (although it is a little bit unethical but rather is useful to hide your identity for a dating site).
Final Thoughts: Although the above working methods are enough to use Tinder, however, personal data and privacy are important. So always keep the use of this kind of social media site secondary just to avoid any misuse of your personal info and data.
