Tinder Without Facebook

It used to be a big pain in the ass to use Tinder if you didn’t have a Facebook account. You had to sign up for Facebook even if with just a fake profile so you could also sign up for Tinder.

Even if you had a Facebook account, a lot of people were uncomfortable with signing up with their Facebook account from a data privacy perspective, not really trusting neither Facebook nor Tinder with their personal data.

If you had some wrong personal info on Facebook, such as your age or name, you couldn’t really change that on Facebook.

Another issue emerged sometimes when you couldn’t log in Tinder because of some Facebook issues.

Tinder without a Facebook account vs with a Facebook account

So, the question is which method should you choose if you can do all of them. We would suggest using only one of them that is the easiest, most comfortable option for you.

What you should keep in mind that resetting your Tinder account is still a great hack to get a beginner boost from the Tinder algorithm. However, that process is not that easy as it used to be, as Tinder started to penalize those who reset their account frequently.

Therefore, when you start a new Tinder account, you should choose a login method that Tinder has not yet connected with your profile yet (if you start the new account less than 3 months after the old was deleted). Because if you are not cautious, the Tinder algorithm will penalize your account, meaning that you will most likely get shadowbanned and not really be shown up in the swiping deck.

If you are afraid that you might be banned from Facebook, you should not use Facebook to sign up for Tinder. Use your phone number instead.
