Ever been in a relationship, but feeling unsure or worried whether or not your other half might be swiping away at others on Tinder and other dating sites like Bumble? Would you like to put your heart at rest and avoid those sleepless nights worrying over whom he could be chatting or cheating on you with already? Then, it’s time to relax, and let’s explore the chances that your boyfriend is busy getting the best of fun while you deal with the trust issue.
Finding his secret account on Tinder
Here is how you can find out if your boyfriend has a Tinder account, and in the other sections of this guide, I’ll show you how to tell if h’s still active on the app or not, and what to do when you catch him with that hidden profile.
1. Use advanced search tools
This option is the best-recommended tool to find dating profiles, including Tinder and other sites if there are any of them. All you need is the person’s first and last name, or you can use his email address, any property, or the cell phone number. Use any of the search options and you’ll get a full report with the exact Tinder profile link of your boyfriend.
If the guy is secretly on Tinder, even though he has a girlfriend, you’ll get all of its data and personal information that’s not known to you. In other words, even if you find no mentions to his secret Tinder account, you still found his Facebook profiles, and social media accounts you don’t know about. Even more, there will be a tab for his associates where you may find if there is another girlfriend for a hookup. That’s just a few of the many information every user can find about others.
2. Do an online search
You could opt for a Google search for your boyfriend’s profile using his personal details such as full name, email address, etc. If he has special names, aliases, and email addresses that could be the best place to start your search from. Also, get hold of his profile picture on any social media account and other photos you presume he would likely use online, then, drag and drop the photo into the Google image search bar to see what comes up.
To do a reverse photo search on Google can spring up many surprises about your boyfriend’s antecedents, and you might just be fortunate to see his details pop up somewhere to check his activities. You can also make use of online search sites such as the Social Searcher to find your boyfriend’s social media accounts for Twitter, WhatsApp, Facebook, etc, and forums his visits.
3. Check his PC or smartphone
This might not be a completely recommended measure to take as it might involve some legal implications for privacy. But if he allows you to look through his phone or laptop without placing password restrictions you could check his browser history for the website visited. If dating sites or apps exist on his phone and how often he makes use of them might just give you a clue on whether he visits Tinder, Facebook dating, or other sites.
If he does not clear the history often and has the password stored on the device, then it might allow you access into the dating site or app to view his past activities. However, if your boyfriend allows you to access to his devices, the chances are that he is not trying to hide any information from you.
It’s also possible that he is more discreet with what tools he makes use of when on an escapade on Tinder or other social dating apps. Popular apps and sites to look out for include:
- Coffee Meets Bagel
- Vaulty Stocks
- OkCupid etc…
4. Create a profile on Tinder
To make it easier to spot him on Tinder, you might as well create a fake social media account or profile also, the reason is that most dating sites have features that make it easier for only registered members to locate other users.
So you could do a search for other users, but this time, you’ll be looking for your boyfriend by matching him with your account details. Search his locality, sex, age bracket, hair color and other vital information you think can bring his profile out of hiding if any. Your search could also focus on a likely locality you presume he might have an interest in to be more effective.
5. Hire a private investigator
Yeah, right! You see that a lot in movies, but you do know it’s a reality today? You can get a private eye to help do your searching online for dating sites your boyfriend uses. So if you do not have the time due to a busy schedule or would rather someone else does the search, then you just might need to go with the private investigator.
Of course, expect that it should cost you some bucks depending on the level of engagements you seek. How much you want to know and the amount of evidence you want the investigator to supply would determine what it would cost you. It’s not better like the first search option in this guide, but if you find no way, to tell the truth, this can help.
Except the relationship has gone sour and obviously there is a clear case of adultery and major trust issues, this might be an extreme measure to take.
6. Lookup his username
Online services like InfoTracer can find anyone’s accounts on Tinder through an advanced username reverse lookup, that technology search billions of records in the USA and find lots of information to know for real if that profile on Tinder belong to him or not.
As you can see here, there are multiple search methods, that starts from using his name and the location and typing his car license plate, but because many guys use the same username everywhere online, it will much easier to find all his social profiles with that exact search entry.
7. Use a Spy App (not recommended)
Third-party spy apps like Flexi Spy, Spyera, and more can help you solve the problem of knowing what your boyfriend does with their smartphones. With such apps even when he deletes all information to clean up their tracks you can still have access to it without stress. The spy app also gives details of your boyfriend’s location, so, you could call him up and ask for their actual location to see if it tallies with what the app shows.
But to use these apps you would need to install them on your boyfriend’s device, make sure to delete the app after downloading, and ensure it is hidden from the desktop so they do not see it easily or become suspicious.
Even if this may look a smart move to find the truth, there is no secure app, and those that are built for spying may hide something and cause serious problems to your smartphone or stole your photos. So, be careful when using such tools, don’t trust any of them, and block access to all folders.
8. Ask him politely
Yeah, this might sound or look impossible, but if you have been in a relationship with him for some time, you should be able to read his mannerism and nuances. So, a polite and careful question about their activities and dating experience online might help. Of course, if he conceals anything from you, from his expressions you should be able to tell. If he becomes evasive, defensive, and paranoid then you’ve got the answer you need.
How to see if someone is active on tinder
By just looking at your partner’s account, you can’t tell at 100% if he’s active there or just log in one a year or so, but you can look for common signs that active Tinder users share. For example, see the picture he uses, is it from recent days or weeks? Can you see other photos all together? That’s a sign of being active on Tinder and it can save a lot of time searching.
What do I do if my boyfriend is on tinder?
If you found him active on Tinder, then, don’t just put all your anger on him with blames, etc…First, keep calm and think about all of that, I hope he never met girls in real life with the app, but if he did, see the advanced search tools above and look for females in his “Associates” report. What that does is showing you the real profiles of the girl he may be in contact with, and luckily, there are thousands of fake accounts on Tinder, most of them are robots, so, in the worst scenario, hope he just talked to a bot and not a real girl.
On the other side, if indeed, the guy met with another girl on Tinder or another place on the Internet, then, that’s another story, you need to talk about that seriously and explain why that’s no considered as normal as he might think. In reality, being in a relationship and using Tinder at the same time is a sign of cheating and it’s not acceptable in all cases.
You can go further in your personal investigation and see what social media profiles he has and look for any hidden email address he uses, that can be a sign of another secret dating site your boyfriend is on and it’s not just Tinder or even Bumble.
