Do you know anything about Tinder passport?
Tinder Passport allows you to change your geographical location on the app, so you can swipe and match with singles in any city you want.
How does it work?
Changing your location on Tinder is simple:
- From the ‘Settings’ or ‘App Settings’ screen, tap ‘Swiping in’ (Android) or ‘Location’ (iOS).
- Tap the option to “Add a new location.”
- Enter the city you want to swipe in into the search bar.
- Select it from your search results.
- Tap the blue banner to change your location.
Once you’ve done this, your profile will only be visible to Tinder users in that area.
Your 5 most recent locations will be stored, and you can toggle between them by tapping on the city to change where you’re swiping.
Tinder Passport does show distance, so your matches will be able to see how far away you are. You can change your location as often as you like, but your profile may be visible to matches you’ve “liked” for up to 24 hours after you’re no longer visible in that location.
That also means no one at your “real” physical location will see your profile. You’ll be shown in your destination city until you manually change it back, even if you log out and back in to the app.
You can change your current location.
When you use Tinder Passport to change your current location, your profile gets an instant “new user” boost. That means you’ll get more views initially.
It’s also the easiest and most reliable way to spoof your location on Tinder.
The Bad News
Tinder Passport isn’t free. You’ll need to invest the 900 shillings a month for Tinder Plus and 1900 shillings if you’re over 31).
Tinder Plus comes with a few more premium features, like unlimited right swipes, extra Super Likes, and a free Tinder Boost every month.
Get a full run down on everything you get with Tinder Plus, or go straight to Tinder Gold for all the goodies.
Also, keep in mind it is possible to tell if someone is using Tinder Passport. The distance away that’s shown on your profile will likely be way outside their search parameters.
Tinder Plus gives you the “don’t show my distance” option, but when people notice it’s not listed at all, they might assume it’s because you’re far away.
Is Tinder Passport Worth Paying For Tinder?
If you travel and want to meet new people while at your destination, the location changer is likely worth the expense. Going from match to message to meet up can take time, so why not have all the legwork done before you get there?
And if you split your time between two (or more) cities, you won’t have to take a break from swiping in one location while you’re living in the other. It’s all about keeping your options open, it’s also another way that Tinder has managed to allow cross dating and people can now explore their options from other countries.
