12 sleek ways to find out if your boyfriend is on Tinder!

To find out if your boyfriend is using Tinder, you can start by searching for his name or number on the app using search engines.

However, if he uses a fake profile or his profile is hidden, then you might have to use apps from others to search more deeply.

This article gives you advice not just on technology but also on other ways to see if your boyfriend is on Tinder.

Here are 12 strategies that work well to check if your boyfriend is on Tinder:

1. Try to find his Tinder account by using Swindlerbuster.

If you want to know that your boyfriend is on Tinder then you can search for his name and age, or even phone number on Swindler Buster.

On this page, you can use his information, including his number, and check if he has a Tinder profile.

The more information you add the more detailed the results will be!

If he has signed up on Tinder with his number then you can easily find his profile even if it’s hidden from other Tinder profiles.

All you have to do is fill in the required information and press the ‘Search Tinder’ button!

2. The classical trick to find out if your boyfriend is on Tinder: put his email on Tinder login.

To find out if your boyfriend is on Tinder for free you can do it by opening Tinder and clicking on signing in with email.

Tinder has no password requirements, hence there’s no option for you to put a password or to tap ‘forgot password’.

* Just to be clear. You need your boyfriend’s phone, or email at your disposal for this one!

  • First things first, you want to go to Tinder, and instead of going to the ‘create an account’ page, you want to go to the login page.

    Here’s how it looks and where you must click!

  • Next up, you want to click on ‘Trouble logging in’. Right here!
  • After clicking ‘Trouble logging in’, you’ll have the option to submit an email. This is where you put your boyfriend’s email in. Here’s how it looks!
  • After you enter the email and click ‘Send email’, if there’s an account linked to that email, your boyfriend will get an email from Tinder. This email will include a link for him to log in.
  • If he isn’t registered on Tinder, he’s likely to receive an email that looks
    like this:

Avoid using this method to find out if he’s on Tinder if you don’t have access to his email or phone.

It can turn into a reason for a huge argument, and it can shake the foundations of trust in your relationship!

3. Look him up on Google to find out if he’s been using Tinder.

This is another popular method to check if he is on Tinder.

The process is straightforward, I tried it myself, and it works. Here’s what I did: First, go to Google.

Then, type in “site:tinder.com” followed by the name. For instance, if your boyfriend’s name is Matt, you would type “site:tinder.com matt”.

This is how it looks:

Search-Google Tinder profiles

Look through each Tinder profile that Google shows to see if one is your boyfriend’s.

Make sure to also check Google’s other pages! It’s important not to skip looking at Google Images results too.

Don’t just stop at Google’s first page. Keep checking the second, third, and further pages until you find the profile!

4. Search for your boyfriend on Tinder by URL.

Another free and super simple method to find out if your boyfriend is using Tinder is by searching for him on Tinder by URL.

This may sound complicated, perhaps untrue as well, but it isn’t.

After so many misguidances, I had no choice but to be skeptical. It just seemed too easy and good to be true.

So, yes, you guessed it right! I gave it a try myself! Here’s how it went!

  • You’re supposed to type tinder.com/@username. Now I went on and opened a new tab, and typed in tinder.com/@mina. Here:
  • Then, I found an account. I kid you not! To respect this user’s privacy I blurred their profile, but here’s how it looked like:

Without a need to log in, without a need to register, and without a need to swipe right or left, I just found a Tinder profile from Google!

What does the trick here, is to think of a username your boyfriend could be using. You have to get creative and give it a try.

For example, you can try starting with his nickname, then if nothing shows up, you can try his nickname plus his birth year, etc.

This does not work with names only. You have to think of a possible username your boyfriend might have on Tinder!

5. Take a look at his notifications.

Finding out if your boyfriend uses Tinder without telling you is simple. You won’t get notified about Tinder unless the app is on your phone.

So, when his phone gets a notification, sneak a peek. If you spot the Tinder symbol in the notification area, you’ve got your answer.

Here’s how a Tinder notification looks:


The notification might hide what’s inside, but the Tinder logo is easy to see and stands out.

Just check his phone notifications. If Tinder notifications are on and he’s got the app, you’ll see them pop up and learn the truth.

6. Create a Tinder account and set your preferences to match the description of your boyfriend.

To find out if your boyfriend uses Tinder, make a profile that looks like his interests and settings.

Change your profile to match his likes, the distance he might set, and his age. Then, swipe right on profiles that seem like his type.

This could make Tinder suggest his profile to you. However, this method might not work if he uses a fake profile or false information on Tinder.

Also, be careful as this could cause issues in your relationship if he finds out you’re on Tinder for this reason.

7. Use CheaterBuster.

Another way to find out if your boyfriend is on Tinder is to search Cheaterbuster.

This is a paid method, hence, one search costs $17 for one search.

I tried giving it a try, however, the moment I clicked on ‘See Search Results’ the site froze completely. Here:


It kept staying like this, and I tried refreshing my email, but no notification came in.

Luckily, you don’t have to make the payment before you register!

However, despite my failed attempts to search Cheaterbuster, you can give it a try since it has terrific good reviews all around the internet.

8. Search his pictures on TinEye to find out if he’s on Tinder.

To check if your boyfriend is on Tinder, you can use TinEye, a free tool designed for searching and finding images across different websites.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Then you can either choose to upload an image from your device or paste or enter the image’s URL. The first option is much simpler!
  • Next up, take a look at the results. I tested it with a random picture on my computer, and here’s what I got:

If you search your boyfriend’s picture you may as well find him on other social media, dating sites, or dating apps.

9. Ask him simple questions about Tinder to find out if he’s been using Tinder.

This is a simple way to find out if your boyfriend is on Tinder. You don’t need his phone, the Tinder app, or any special skills. Just have a chat with him. Here’s how you can bring it up:

  • “Are you on Tinder? I just want to talk about it.”
  • “Let’s talk about our relationship. I’m asking you about Tinder to avoid snooping on your phone. Are you using it?”
  • “I’m feeling unsure and need some clarity. It’s not an attack on you, but I wonder if you’re back on dating apps. Can you tell me?”

If asking directly feels too hard, you can try a more subtle approach:

  • “I thought I saw a Tinder notification on your phone.”
  • “What do you think about people who use Tinder while they’re in a relationship?”
  • “A friend mentioned they saw you on Tinder.”

How he reacts to these comments will reveal a lot. If he becomes very defensive or blames you, it might tell you more than you expect.

10. Check for his new female followers on social media and look them up on Tinder.

Check if he’s gaining many new women followers on social media, especially if you don’t know them. Then, search for these women on Tinder.

Look up their names on Tinder or Google to see if they have profiles and if they’re nearby. It’s common for him to have new followers if you’ve moved to a new place or if he’s changed jobs.

However, if his account is private and he’s getting many new, unknown followers without any clear reason, he might be using Tinder or other dating apps.

Conversations from Tinder often move to social media or messaging apps like Viber or WhatsApp.

If he’s avoiding messages on his phone, he may add people from dating apps on social media instead.

11. Check for other occasional signs.

When it comes to finding out if your boyfriend is on Tinder, then you’ve got to take a look at his behavior as well.

If he has turned off all his notifications, this might indicate that he might be getting Tinder notifications and also emails from Tinder.

His body language will let you know a lot as well. Due to the secretive and guilt-inducing activity, he’s on, he could

  • act defensive;
  • not let your phone around you under any circumstance;
  • all of a sudden put – or change – a password to his electronics or apps;
  • turn his notifications off;
  • overreact when you go near his phone;
  • hesitate to use his phone around you.

Most of these are signs that he’s up to something secretive. Tinder might be in the equation as well.

12. Use other free third-party apps.

A quicker and cheaper way to find out if your boyfriend or husband is on Tinder is by searching his name on free search engines.

Sites like UserSearch.org are free and very easy to use.

If you want to check how UserSearch.org works then you should take these steps.

  • Go to Usersearch.org;
  • Select dating right below the search bar. Here:
  • Search his name or email on the search bar and see the results.

Note: sometimes this method may prove ineffective since every time I’ve done a search, a result about OnlyFans and Baddoo has been shown.

That was so regardless of the email, name, or person I searched there. So take it with a grain of salt if you do see a result about OnlyFans.

How to confront my exclusive boyfriend about still being on Tinder?

How to confront my exclusive partner about being still on Tinder

When talking to your boyfriend about still being on Tinder, stay calm. First, collect evidence since he may have forgotten about his account. This talk could lead to a big argument or even a breakup.

  • Check how serious you both are about being exclusive. If you haven’t talked about it before or things have changed, discuss your relationship. Maybe you both didn’t agree to delete your Tinder profiles, and he thought it was okay.

If you’re married and agreed to be monogamous, remind him of this.

  • Understand why he’s still on Tinder. Paul Friedman, a relationship counselor, says there could be many reasons. Maybe there’s an emotional barrier between you, causing problems. Before assuming the worst, try to find out the real reason behind his actions.
  • Have solid proof before confronting him. If you accuse him without evidence, he might deny it. Ask friends on Tinder to check his profile. The Tinder algorithm shows more profiles from your area if you have matches there.
  • Take your time to understand your feelings. Feeling betrayed, especially in a long-term relationship, is tough. Don’t rush into confronting him. Give yourself time to process everything.

It’s better to be honest than to snoop on his phone.

  • Decide what to do based on your values and boundaries. If he’s disrespecting you and crossing your boundaries, it might be time to break up. Take your time to think about how you feel, watch his behavior, and then decide.

Leaving might be the right choice if you feel betrayed and unfaithful. You deserve better.

Good luck!
