Tinder dating app with Facebook privacy

By Peter Chubb - Oct 17, 2014

It’s amazing how many people ask us about Tinder without Facebook, as they wish to know if it is possible to use the Tinder dating app without having to sign into Facebook, and we are afraid the simple answer is no. However, there are ways in which you can improve your privacy if you worry about security.

The problem here is that people really do enjoy using Tinder as it has reinvigorated the dating scene, but the only drawback is having to sign in with Facebook. Tinder say this is an important feature because it allows the system to know it is a real person signed up. Not only that, but it also looks at your profile and finds a match based on your interests, as well as your location.

Tinder Facebook privacy

Even though there is no way to get around using Tinder without Facebook, there are a few things you can do so that Tinder does not get to know too much about you. The easiest thing to do first is to increase your Facebook privacy settings, you will be amazed at how many people use the social networking service without any privacy settings.

This is a very silly thing to do, and so you should at least make a few changes to the privacy settings. Another thing you can do is go to settings in Tinder and set it to not mach up with your fiends on Facebook. Two other things you can do is to hide Tinder from your Facebook apps and also hide the dating app’s access to your profile.

We do have one last option for you, and that is to create a fake Facebook account, although you can still include your real name and details on you and what you like, it just won’t be able to see any fiends, as there will not be any.
