Viewing Tinder Profiles Online

Tinder is a famous dating app that uses a specific algorithm and search parameters to hook its users. The application works in such a way that it does not allow you to call a specific contact. Instead, you have to find a match by swiping left or right. But if you’re interested in a particular profile or want to find that person elsewhere on the internet, the situation gets tricky.

The only way to view a Tinder profile online is to use the Tinder app. Also, you will have to try hard to find the exact one. In this article, we’ll explain the best way to find a particular Tinder profile by changing some of the app’s preferences.

Create a Fake Profile

If you want to call someone you swiped left before, you have to start over. This is because the Tinder algorithm works in such a way that it will never show the same profile twice if you have turned it off before.

To come across the same profile again, you must create a fake (or ‘fake’) profile so it can show up in your feed again. To create a new Tinder account, follow these steps:

  1. Go to ‘Settings’ on your smartphone.
  2. Find the ‘Applications’ menu.
  3. Find the Tinder app.
  4. Select ‘Uninstall’ and wait for the process to finish.

Next, you have to create a new Facebook or Instagram account that you can connect with Tinder and download the Tinder app again from the Play Store or App Store.

When you reinstall the app, use your new Facebook/Instagram profile credentials to create a new account. If you really want to find a particular profile, it’s better to pay for the gold or premium version as it allows infinite scrolls and specific geolocation.

Once your fake account is ready, you can start searching.

Update Your Preferences

Tinder is extremely specific when it comes to search preferences. You cannot search for usernames, real names or interests. The only things you can set as search parameters are gender, distance, and age. So if you know exactly who you’re looking for (age, gender, and location), these attributes may be enough.

To update profile settings, follow these steps:

  1. Open Tinder.
  2. Tap the ‘Settings’ icon in the upper left corner of the screen.
  3. Press ‘Discovery preferences’.
  4. Specify a specific radius, gender and age range.

A regular Tinder user tries to make their search pool as versatile as possible. The distance is usually greater than a few blocks, and the age cannot be set to an individual number.

However, you should make the pool as small as possible when searching for a specific target. This will filter the feed and make it easier to find the desired profile. There are two things you need to know in this situation – the person’s age and their current physical location.

Unfortunately, you have to set an age range of 5 years in your parameters, and if you’re using a free version of the app, Tinder uses the distance from your actual location to search for potential matches.


So unless you’re looking for someone who lives in an apartment below, setting a 1 mile radius won’t work. You will either have to move close to the person you are looking for or you will have to pay for a Gold or Premium account.

Locating with Tinder Gold or Premium

Searching for a specific profile becomes much easier if you buy a Tinder Gold or Premium subscription. This is because you can call someone from a different part of the city or even another city or country.

To change your location to another location, you need to:

  1. Open Tinder.
  2. Select ‘Scroll’ (or ‘Position’ if you have iOS).
  3. Tap ‘Add a new location’.
  4. Choose the location.

For example, you can specify the location of the person’s workplace, home, or any place they visit regularly (if you know such places, of course).

Once you have set the preferences, all you have to do is swipe left until you reach the profile you want to visit. With Tinder Gold or Premium this will be much easier because you will have unlimited swipes. If you have a regular account, there is a possibility that the feed will ‘dry’ before it reaches the person you want.

Use Tinder Username

Maybe you are not aware of this feature, but you can set a Tinder username. If you don’t have one yet, you chose it like this:

  1. Go to Profile Settings on Tinder.
  2. Tap on the ‘Username’ option under the ‘Web profile’ section.
    User name
  3. Choose a suitable username.
  4. Press ‘Confirm’.

Now when you try to type[username] Your profile should appear in your web browser.

So if you know the username of the person you are looking for, you can write[profileusername] and the profile should also be displayed in your web browser.

Swipe Patiently

After setting all the preferences to make your task easier, there is still a chance that the scrolling will take a while. A common problem is that if things take a while, you automatically start swiping left without even looking at profiles.

This can cause you to accidentally swipe left on the profile you’re trying so hard to find. So after you put all that effort in, make sure you pay attention to each profile so you don’t miss what you’re looking for.
