Tinder is one of the most used relationship apps in the world with 20 million matches, according to the company. Despite its popularity, the application hides a number of little-known functions. Some available resources can also confuse users of the program. For example, deleting the mobile application does not delete the account and the profile may continue to be displayed. Another feature of the platform is the prohibition of photos of children alone even of the person himself in childhood, chances are they will be excluded by the service.

1. No Facebook account required
When Tinder was launched in 2012, it was necessary to have a Facebook account to create a profile on the relationship app. Despite not posting on the social network or making big disclosures about the user, some people felt uncomfortable, because the integration allows them to view friends and pages of common interest. In addition, those who did not use the social network were unable to use the program and meet new people.
However, after an update, the app started to allow the registration to be made with a valid phone number, through which the interested party receives a confirmation code. Then, just inform an email for the account recovery and fill in the data traditionally obtained by Facebook.
2. You can be invisible

If the user no longer wants to have his profile viewed by other people, he can hide it. Despite avoiding new likes, the Show Me on Tinder feature available in Settings, does not hide the account of those with whom there were matches, and also allows you to exchange messages with them.
With Tinder, you can help a friend find a match. If a user finds a profile that does not match theirs, but has everything to do with that of someone they know, they can easily share through different apps.

The option Recommend xxxxx to friends is located just below the applicant's information. When you click on it, the recommendation options appear, allowed via WhatsApp, Messenger, among others. The link leads to the web version of the service, that is, it is not necessary that the other person has Tinder installed on the smartphone to see it.
4. Integration with other services
One way to increase the chances of getting good matches is to provide other users with information to help them discover common points of interest. In order to facilitate this interaction, the app features integration with Instagram and Spotify. Those who have an account on the social network can show more of their lifestyle by allowing the display of the latest photos posted on the dating app. The alternative also applies to private accounts. However, if the interested party wants to see more images, they must request permission directly on Instagram.

In the music streaming service, the most played artists in the playlist are displayed, in addition to those in common between profiles. But those who do not use Spotify do not need to feel excluded: Tinder allows you to include music that represents you and, thus, increase the chances of starting a conversation. After combining, each new photo posted or change in favorite artists and songs appears in the feed, a feature launched by the application in late 2017. To activate the approach with both apps, simply access the profile editing settings.
5. No match needs to be eternal
Those who already liked a profile by mistake and had an unwanted combination, certainly wanted to reverse the situation. The same occurs with those who, during the chat, notice little affinity. To undo the match, simply access the conversation with the profile in question, click on the "…" icon at the top right and select the "Uncombine" option.
However, if no match needs to be eternal, we cannot say the same for a unmatch. When requesting to unmatch with someone, it is no longer possible to undo the action. Thus, their profiles will no longer appear to each other, and they can no longer exchange messages. Except in case one of the two deletes the account on Tinder and redo it later.
Tinder can also be used through any browser Photo: Reproduo / Taysa Coelho
Tinder users can create a personalized URL for their own profiles and share with anyone they want. With the domain tinder.com/yourname, the address gives access to the web version of the platform, Tinder Online, available from any browser such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
7. Find out what Tinder knows about you
In the Tinder user guide, those responsible for the program claim to be committed to protecting people's data and privacy and, therefore, are willing to inform all data provided by users. For this, it is necessary to make a request through the address https://account.gotinder.com/data.
8. it is possible to report incidents that occur offline
The complainant is asked to provide details, in addition to the exact name, age, bio and photos of the reported profile (preferably screen prints). Other data that can help are the location, phone number, email and / or link to the Facebook account. We take complaints very seriously. The more details you can provide, the faster we will be able to identify and investigate the user in question, informed in the legal and security terms of the service.
9. Tinder can remove your child's photos
Sharing your photos as a child may violate Tinder rules. The service does not allow images of unaccompanied minors, and if someone posts something like that on their profile, the content can be removed. This is to protect children. Their safety is more important than displaying their cutest phase in childhood. We have every right to remove these photos, informs the service in the Community Guidelines.
10. Deleting the app does not delete the account
The person who wants to leave Tinder, in other words, no longer wants to have the profile viewed by other users, cannot just delete the mobile app. In this case, the account will remain active and even be able to receive new likes and messages for some time.
