3 Ways to Find Someone’s Tinder Profile By Their Real Name

3 Ways to Find Someone’s Tinder Profile By Their Real Name

Dating Profile Search

Enter a name to find someone’s dating profiles

In the past few years we saw a boom in hookup apps: Bumble, OkCupid, POF… But Tinder, the #1 dating app with the largest user base, is still the first choice young singles turn to. So whether you’re looking for someone you met/dated before, or you suspect if your other half is secretly seeing someone, finding their Tinder profiles would definitely be a good start.

Unlike Instagram or Facebook, dating profiles are not something you can easily search with someone’s name. But don’t worry — you can still do a Tinder search with some third party websites, even when all you have is just a name.

Method 1: Search for the Tinder profile URL

Officially, Tinder doesn’t allow you to find people in the app, claiming that you can only search people in your match list.

But there’s actually a little known trick that allows you to search Tinder with a name or username, and you can do that even without an account:

  1. Open the Google search page.
  2. In the search box, first type This will limit the search results to Tinder profiles. Next, type that person’s first/last name. (In my case it’s Marcus.) Hit Enter when you’re ready to search.
  3. You’ll see multiple Tinder profiles related to the name you searched. First you can check the usernames and see if you can spot anything familiar. You can also click to view all profile pictures.
  4. Be advised that one Tinder account can have multiple profile pictures. So once you click a profile in the search results, use the arrow button on the image to see if that’s the person you’re looking for.

If you have no luck with Google, take a look at the next method.

Method 2: Try the name on other social media

You can call it human nature, but the majority of us tend to use the same username on different websites. If you’ve got a username, then you’re likely holding the key to a lot of useful data.

To get the username, you can start searching the real name on social media. It’s even better if you have that person’s Instagram, which means you can try to visit the Tinder URL with the username in it. (The Tinder profile URL may look like this: )

Method 3: Use a people search engine

People search tools are online services that can help you conduct social media search. Many of these tools allows you to search for someone’s dating profiles with as little info as the person’s first and last name. If you don’t have the time to swipe through thousands of Tinder profiles in your region, you can use the following websites to search for that person in minutes.

1. TruthFinder

TruthFinder is a people search engine that includes social media information. With millions of public records sources, TruthFinder makes it possible to find almost anyone’s online profiles including those across over 50 social networks. And by searching with someone’s name, you may see photoscontact info and the social & dating profiles associated with that person.

TruthFinder doesn’t support Tinder profile search at the moment, but you may use it to find a person’s other dating profiles.

Step 1: Go to the TruthFinder search page.

Step 2: Enter the person’s name and click Search.

Step 3: Wait for TruthFinder to search its public record sources. Once it locates a match, it’ll generate a report containing all the available information. You can subscribe to a plan to view the data, which may reveal the person’s photos andavailable profiles on 50+ social networks (including dating sites).

  3. Wait a few seconds for Social Catfish to search the database. Once it hits a match, you can receive a detailed report of the person you searched for, which may include photos and profiles on dozens of dating apps.
