Social Catfish

Founded in 2013, Social Catfish is an online dating investigation service based in California, USA. With its own proprietary reverse lookup engine, you can not only find lost connections, but also verify things like images, social profiles, phone numbers, emails, jobs and a lot more!

To verify a Tinder profile with the reverse image search engine from Social Catfish:

  1. Take a screenshot of their Tinder profile picture and save it on your device.
  2. Go to Social Catfish Reverse Image Search page to upload their Tinder profile image you saved in step 1. Then hit Search to run a reverse image search.

  3. Social Catfish will scan the web and find duplicates of the image online.

    Just wait several minutes, and you’ll get a detailed report about the person you searched for. This usually includes their activity on social networks.

As you can see, the Social Catfish reverse image search results may link you to some social network sites and dating platforms. What’s more, after you ran the reverse image search, you may also discover their name, username, email address and other personal information.

Once you got more information, you’ll use them to discover more personal details by running other reverse lookup tools provided by Social Catfish, such as:

TinEye

TinEye.com is a dedicated reverse image search website that makes it super easy to run reverse image lookup. As the first image search engine on the web to use image identification technology rather than keywords, metadata or watermarks, TinEye can help find similar images quickly and easily!

  1. Visit TinEye official website.
  2. You can either upload the screenshot of their Tinder profile to TinEye, or paste the URL of their Tinder profile into the search box to run the reverse image lookup.
  3. Wait a few seconds, and TinEye will return you with all the results where the image appears.

Google Image Search is a free reverse iamge lookup tool. With Google Image Search, you can check if your own photos are being used without permission, and see where an image came from.

Just like TinEye, Google Image Search allows you search by the image you uploaded, or the image URL you pasted to the search box.
