Let’s go.

And before we dive into how to Tinder without anyone knowing, here is something important…

Tinder to cheat on your girl… this is how you’ll get caught

First thing’s first…

Because you’re putting yourself in some dicey territory if you’re using Tinder to cheat on your girl.

You’ll risk ending up like this guy:

Cheating is something I wouldn’t recommend anyone doing but it’s your own choice of course.

Betraying your boyfriend or girlfriend will likely result in two extremely painful realisations:

  • Your partner apparently is not the person who you thought he/she was.
  • And apparently you yourself are not the person who you thought you were.


Because if you thought that you were beloved by your partner, this image is now shattered in 1000 pieces by her/his sudden Judas-action.

That’s why catching a cheating lover is a Tinder experience that will turn your entire reality upside down. You don’t want to put anyone in that situation.

Of course you wonder: how do cheaters get caught, when they’re using Tinder to be unfaithful?

Two reasons:

  • You’re using Tinder publicly, leading to an acquaintance suddenly spotting your face on the dating app (this is preventable, and I’ll show you later if you want to be anonymous)
  • Your girlfriend catches a Tinder notification appearing on your phone, when you’re receiving a text from someone, for example

Stupid stupid stupid.

But after spending a lot of time on Tinder the past 5 years, I know there are also a lot of legitimate reasons to use the dating app anonymously.

Here is a video I created about my methods, you can watch this or read on.

Reasons to use Tinder anonymously

As you’re about to find out, there are some seriously legitimate reasons for it. And… also some less legitimate. But I’m not here to judge you.

I’ve occasionally had dates with anonymous Tinder profiles that revealed to be charming individuals.

Here are 5 big reasons to use this app secretly:

  • You’re naughty and want to cheat. Or you want to find out if your SO has been naughty and is on the dating app.
  • You have an occupation and don’t want to be recognized by people in your coworkers, clients and network (teacher, manager, politician).

  • You’re part of a rather closed community (for example, a gossipy village, or religion that rejects dating freely)
  • You want to use the app jokingly, and rather don’t want to be recognized.
  • You’re a big time weirdo that likes to catfish.

That last one I do not recommend, but it is a great source for entertainment.

Anyway, let’s look at some smart ways to successfully browse Tinder anonymously.

Method #1: Pars pro toto

This method is free and effective.

Especially when, in the end, you want to score some dates via Tinder anonymously.

The pars pro toto method…

What’s that?

When you say “nice wheels man”, what you obviously mean is that you admire his car, not that your buddy has some neat wheels.

And when you say “damn, look at that fine piece of ass”, you don’t mean a literal set of buttocks walking the street without a body attached to it

This is a stylistic device called pars pro toto, with which you refer to a part of an object, instead of its entirety.

That’s exactly what we’re going to be using with this Tinder method. Because you certainly don’t want to show your entire face of body.

So make an anonymous Tinder profile, by revealing just one part of yourself…

And not your smallest part of course… 😉

Just joking.

I’m sure it’s a stunning beast.

Anyway, how do we take this on correctly?

Men pay attention to specific things about women, and vice versa. We have differences in what we find attractive about each other.

I’m now going to list the best body parts that are still attractive to show for the opposite sex, while staying anonymous. We start with the ladies.

Anonymous women’s profile

Which female body parts do men find most attractive?

  • Legs
  • Lips
  • Eyes
  • Stomach
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Breasts

The art is to not show these parts in a distasteful way, but to stylishly display an online glimpse of your body.

Holy Tip:

By putting on something red, you can add some extra femininity to your profile.

One part of the female body is exceptionally sensual and sensitive, one I didn’t put on the list yet.

Namely… your neck.

The neck is very easy to show in a profile pic together with your lips. Below is a self created example of a woman who can browse Tinder anonymously.

You stay sufficiently mysterious without giving up your identity.

But you’ll captivate enough attention with this method to score plenty of Tinder dates.

And now it’s the men’s turn.

Tips for an anonymous men’s profile

If you’re a guy, then the most important question for you is:

Which part of you do women find most attractive?

Women pay attention to different things than men when they’re ranking someone’s attractiveness. They tend to focus less on legs and more on the upper part of the body.

These are the things women generally find most attractive about men:

  • Jawline
  • Beard growth
  • Lips
  • Eyes
  • Upper arms
  • Under arms (yes really)
  • Hands (specifically big hands)
  • The blue triangle

Wait the what?

The blue triangle, the area between the stomach and hips:

Train the obliques, the muscle at the right side of the triangle, and you too can be rocking this look.

I’ve heard countless times of women that this look drives them wild.

So why do women en masse drool so heavily at the sight of pronounced obliques? Because it helps to accentuate the V-shape of your body. And most importantly, it almost outlines an apparent arrow pointing to your gift.

It’s subtle, but if you have a nice body then it’s an excellent part to display.

Luckily, there are many options left in case you don’t have the body of a Greek god.

Research has shown that a heavy stubble beard is found to be the most attractive beard for men to have. So that’s another way to make your Tinder profile anonymous in a sexy way as a male.

Holy tip:

It works really well for both men and women to make a close up photo of

one of your eyes. Because the eye is always beautiful while simultaneously being personal, and deliciously anonymous.

You can browse as you please with this method, but some people might still recognize you on Tinder.

So now it’s time for the next method:

Method #2: The Tinder Plus Hack

Good news, because this method works even better if you want to be completely anonymous.


Because with this Tinder Plus method you can display even your handsome face on your profile.

While staying completely anonymous.

At least…you’ll only be visible for the people you want to be seen by.

What I mean with this, is that only the people you like on Tinder (swipe right),

can see you. And you’ll stay invisible for the rest of the Tinder population, until you’ve swept them left or right.

How does this work?

Step 1: Install Tinder

Step 2: Put your profile on ‘hidden’ in settings. (This option is free)

Step 3: Purchase Tinder Plus

Step 4: Go to the Tinder Plus settings “My Tinder Plus”, and turn on the following option:

This also works with Tinder Gold. Turning on this function means that only the people that you’ve liked, get to see your profile.

This way you can ‘reject’ the people whom you don’t want to be able to see your profile.

The drawback of this function is that you will get less matches, or that you have to swipe a lot.

But you can be fairly sure that, for example, your students or colleagues won’t find you on Tinder.

Important: Just letting you know I am currently letting guys use my Profile Checklist for free. It's a simple fill-in-the-blanks code that shows you what to change about your profile. It's the first step to getting all the matches you want. Get it here for free.

Method #3: The troll

This method is guarantees tons of Tinder fun while remaining 100% anonymous.

Because you’re going to be catfishing like a pro. And with that I don’t mean fooling someone for years on, and eventually being exposed on MTV or Jerry Springer.


What I mean is that you keep your anonymity in a fun way.

By making your profile unmistakably fake. So choose your favorite fictional character and play you role.

Always wanted to be Shrek?

Or play Bender from Futurama?

Or who knows, maybe you’re more a Queen Elsa type?

Then use Google Images to find a neat picture of your hero or heroin, come up with a hilarious Tinder bio, and get swiping!

  • Warning:

Tinder could ban you from the app for having a fake account!

I’ll give you some funny examples of fake profiles:

#1 Badboy Batman

Finding a good photo is easy.

But the art is to make your Tinder bio funny and relevant for the other side. You’ll show humor and personality with this.

Like Bruce:

Or maybe you’re more of a Disney person:

#2 Psycho Pocahontas

Every Disney princess has got her issues, and I love ‘em all.

Except Snowy White, she’s to well-behaved for me.

Anyway, for all the women reading this, get inspired:

And now my favorite… because if you’ve got a pet, let your loyal hound be your wingman:

#3 Dream man Doggo

I’d certainly love to see more of these fake profiles. Give me a funny goldfish or charming guinea pig once in a while.

Again, make sure your bio’s creative and relevant to give it some personality.

I have to confess that you can only maintain these kind of profiles for a few days before getting banned from Tinder. Reporting someone is fairly easy unfortunately. It could also be that Tinder is forcing you to make your profile ‘real’. Of course, meeting your Tinder match in real life will be difficult, because you’re coming across as a pretty secretive person.

#4 Desperate animal looking for human love

The fish below has succeeded in transforming himself in “an real human”.

I mean, look at his profile pic. Unmistakably human.

This is great for some witty banter on Tinder, but your chances of getting laid will drop to zero.

Sometimes I get the following question:

Do my Facebook friends notice when I’m using Tinder? Will I stay anonymous?

Imagine Facebook publishing your late night Tinder texts for all your friends to see. Not cool Zuck.

Or imagine the following happening:

“Hey guys! Guess who’s finally on Tinder now!?! Wow, I’m going to score so many matches and dates yiiha! #dating #Imsingle #heymom”

-Your worst social media nightmare

So, will this stay hidden? Can your FB-friends see you have a Tinder account?

The answer:


You don’t even need Facebook to create a Tinder account. But even if you’re connecting Tinder to your Facebook-account, your friends still won’t notice. Your secret is pretty safe, although…

It’s still possible to encounter your friends. But if you really want to be anonymous, you can use my 3 methods to stay hidden.

If you want to obtain dates out of Tinder, then I 100% recommend to use the first or second method.

If you want to be on the super safe side, why not use both methods?

Anyway, should you be in need of some genuine Tinder success, I’ve got something really neat for you.

Using Tinder to cheat: This is how

The following Tinder tips will vanquish the risk of your adventure turning into a tragedy.

Because partners can turn into private investigators with Sherlock Holmes level qualities when suspecting even the slightest hint of cheating. This section gives you all the tools to avoid this.

However, disclaimer: you still getting caught does not mean we’re to blame. It’s your own responsibility.

I’m not a fan of cheating, and I might delete this section soon. For now, I decided to publish this Tinder tip, mainly because what you do in your relationship is none of my business.

So enjoy this information while it’s still up.

The thing that is absolutely crucial, is staying hidden for everyone. Everywhere. Hiding for your girlfriend is not enough, you also have to sneak past her whole social circle.

Even the small marks that Tinder leaves on social media can lead to the collapse of your naughty plans.

Eliminate getting caught red handed on Tinder by your girlfriend and her acquaintances, by using the “Control Who Sees You” option in Tinder Plus, as mentioned before. This way only people that you’ve liked can see you.

Not-so-Holy Tip:

Snoop around in your girlfriend social media. Knowing her colleagues and friends will prevent you from making a relationship wrecking mistake.

Another extremely useful option within Tinder Plus is to put your location in another city to avoid swiping her friends.

Hiding the app from your girlfriend

Try to imagine the reaction of your girlfriend when she notices a sudden Tinder notification appearing on your phone. Avoid this extremely embarrassing situation by learning how to make your phone seem like an open book.

For this, we need to call in the help of some external resources. Because completely hiding the app for your girlfriend is a different story.

A free method to do this, is to use a so called launcher app like Nova Launcher. With this app you can rename and change the icon of the Tinder app.

So change it in such a way that it looks like something she would never use when she’s on your phone. App names like System Help or Notepad are good examples of this.

However, it’s still possible that you receive notifications of the Tinder app. To block these, go to your phone’s Settings, and find Tinder in the Notifications list.

There is still one important issue left to look at. Overlooking this and you’re still walking on extremely thin ice.

It’s the Achilles’ heel when you’re trying to cheat: Your Facebook account to which Tinder is connected. (It’s also possible you’ve used your phone number to connect to the app. In that case you’re safe).

Holy tip:

If you don’t have an account to Tinder yet and plan to solely use it for cheating, register with your phone number. This makes it way harder for Tinder stalkers to find you on Facebook because they only have your name, which you can make up.

Those potential matches will vanish in a puff of smoke if your Tinder matches can find your relationship status on Facebook.

There are two options to tackle this problem head on.

Let’s start with the most safe but also most rigorous one..

Create a new fake Facebook profile. Yes for real, and just make up all your contact information, name, age, birth place.

Now create a new fake Tinder profile with the same fake contact information. And preferably use pictures that aren’t anywhere else on your social media.

The second option is slightly more vulnerable but puts your account between the high walls of maximum privacy. Basically, a lockdown of your existing Facebook account.

First of all, change the “App visibility” of Tinder to “Only Me” in the Apps menu via the Settings page in Facebook. The app is now hidden in Facebook as well.

Now the privacy settings. You can be found quickly through mutual friends so you want to make your friends list only visible to you. Go to your ‘Friends’ then ‘Manage’ and ‘Edit Privacy’.

Most importantly, make your Facebook profile private, and also make sure your posts are limited for your friends only. In the “About” menu, you should put all your contact information on hidden, age, contact information etc.

Let me summarize everything into a simple roadmap to minimal risk:

  • Get Tinder Plus and select the right settings
  • Get the launcher app to hide Tinder from your phone
  • Block Tinder notifications
  • Put your Facebook account on lock down and make the app invisible

I wish you a lot of anonymous Tinder pleasure,
