Are you a new Tinder User and don’t know what does the blue star means on Tinder? No worries, we are here for you and going to explain everything you have to know about the Tinder Blue star icon.
What Does The Blue Star Mean On Tinder?
The Tinder Blue star is the sign of the Tinder Super Like so it means that someone used Tinder Super Like on you.
Super Like is a premium feature on Tinder that allows you to explicitly show someone that you like her before she would swipe you right. The blue star sign will show up when you Super Like someone or when someone Super Liked you.
You get 5 of them for if you have Tinder Plus or Gold, and 1 for free if you only have a free Tinder account.
Where can you see the Blue star on Tinder?
You can find the blue star in multiple places while using Tinder.
Blue Stars in the Tinder Discovery screen
If you are swiping other profiles in the Discovery screen and see a profile who has a slue star on their profile, it means that they SuperLiked you. The bottom of their profile picture will also have blue shady background indicating that they Super Liked you.
If you are swiping profiles, you can also Super Like someone by swiping her profile up or just tapping on the Blue star icon.
Blue stars in the Tinder Match list
You can also find the Blue Star, once you matched with a profile in the match list area, where the person who SuperLiked you or you have SuperLiked her will have the blue star next to her name.
Blue Star on Tinder Top Picks
If you have Tinder Gold, you can see 10 Top Picks every day, or if you have a free account you can see 1 Top Pick per day.
When you open the Top Picks screen, you can see the blue stars directly on the Tinder Top Picks profile. This means that you can SupeLike these profiles directly from the Top Picks screen without tapping on their profile and Super Liking them there.
However, these blue stars are the same in functionality as regular blue stars in your swiping deck. You might think that the reason they are on the profiles that you can Super Like these profiles without costing you any additional Super Like.
However, this is not the case, if you use it on a Tinder Top Pick, you will lose 1 Super Like from your daily 5 Super Likes you have (when you have a premium subscription).
You should definitely not spend money on buying more Super Likes for your Tinder Top Picks, as it is rare anyway that you will match with them.
Should You Use Tinder Blue Stars?
