Tinder verification is different from getting the blue checkmark on Twitter or Instagram.
On Twitter or Instagram only famous people are eligible to get verified.
But getting Tinder verified proves to others that you’re a real person (thus, not a catfish).
But, getting Tinder verified will get you about 3x more matches.

What’s Tinder verification?
By being verified on Tinder, you are showing potential matches you’re authentic.
(Or at least, it proves that you passed Tinder’s photo verification test.)
This allows you to show other users that you’re real, not a bot or some catfish.
So that cool blue symbol represents…
Doesn’t sound very sexy. But it makes you much more swipeable!
How do you get a blue checkmark on Tinder?
It’s an easy 2-step process to get the blue checkmark.
On your phone you will send Tinder a photo of your face. Then copy a pose shown on your screen.
Usually Tinder verifies you within a few minutes.
And you’re off to reel in those matches!
Don’t worry guys, this was a Tinder April Fools Joke 😉

How does getting verified on Tinder get you more matches?
This is why you’ll get 3X more matches after verifying your Tinder:
It’s something only few men understand about female psychology.
Women are more vulnerable than men. Women are more often the victim of all kinds of creeps.
It also happens to men, but way less often.
This makes women watch out for this one element A LOT more:
That means you’re a safer choice than someone who doesn’t have the blue checkmarks. After all, they could be fake.
That said… a blue badge is no guarantee you’re exactly who you say you are.
Your name, age, profession, and so on could all be baloney.
But the verified profile has one big advantage:
You’re at least the same person as in your photos.
Back in the day, we all found our romantic partners through our work or social circles. That felt safe. Even if you didn’t know the other person, your friends did.
But today, science shows that most partners meet via online dating. Now your friends can’t vouch for your Tinder match.
You know who does the vouching now?
The verification badge!
That blue checkmark gives her the confidence to safely swipe you right.
And if you play your cards right, she’ll also feel more confident meeting up with you.
