4 Tips on How to Run a Tinder Background Check

You might like using dating apps but when you remember stories like ‘Dirty John’ and ‘Tinder Swindler’, you tremble and that has you in a chokehold.

To avoid these types of situations, Tinder started a partnership with Garbo, an online safety platform.

This partnership aims to detect and stop gender-based violence and does not run a background check on other realms.

While Tinder does the background check there is not included traffic violations or drug possession charges.

To know how to do the Tinder background check, here are 4 crucial tips:

First step: go to new matches or conversations.

When you go to New Matches or to the conversations you had, you might notice a blue shield symbol.

This icon can be found either on the conversations or on the right side of the app.

When you click on this symbol, the safety toolkit opens and you have two options:

  • Report Someone;
  • Access Safety Center;

Second step: press Access Safety Center.

After you click on this option, you will see that on your phone you have three different options.

  • The first one is Guide;
  • The second option is Tools;
  • The third option is Resources;

To connect with Garbo services, you need to click on Tools.

Third step: from Tools you need to click on the Garbo article.

After you have clicked on Tools, you see that there is a Garbo article.

If you tap there, then that link will direct you to the Garbo page.

Now, that’s where the Tinder background check starts!

Fourth step: fill out the form!

There will be a fill-out form where you need to fill in basic information about your matches such as name and phone number.

Yet, if this type of information doesn’t give any good results, try to add other details such as their age or their city/state.

If it doesn’t work that way, try this link to go straight to the Garbo page where you need to follow these steps:

  • Open an account there (Sign Up).
  • Confirm your email. Check your Spam-Junk folders.
  • Then that link will get you to the page where you need to put your match’s name, birth date, or just phone number.

The results will show up within three minutes max.

Then you can try once again. After you get the results, don’t jump to a conclusion immediately.

Indeed, it’s scary to see that someone has a criminal record or a restraining order. 

Yet, also don’t stop with background checking until you feel at ease. If you feel better to report and unmatch them then you can do exactly that.

What does Tinder’s background check include?

The website of Garbo doesn’t investigate every inch of that person. 

The information that is collected is mostly from the past 13 years and is focused more on gender-based violations.

As Kathryn Cosmides, who is the Garbo CEO explains that they do show more things than only physical violations:

  • Fraud;
  • Offensive behavior on online platforms;
  • Violations;

Yet, drug arrests are kept out due to the results that will be presented because they think that the arrests are made more based on race.

Yet, there are a few things that might be missing from the results that you get back from this background check.

For example, using our website Swindlerbuster might cost more but the information that you get will be more detailed.

The conclusion: Tinder doing background checks!

Tinder doing background checks has made it easier and safer for people to do online dating.

What you need to do is just go to the Safety Toolkit on Tinder and check the tools that lead you to the Garbo page.

There you can add a few details of your match such as their name, phone number, or even birth date.

The more information you put into this, the more detailed results you will get.

Good luck and happy/safe online dating!
