Basically, the goal of Tinder is to help you meet people near you. That’s why it asks us for our location and only shows us people who are within a certain radius of us. However, when we go on a trip or the distance is not so important to us, it may be that we change our location want.
So that we can select the desired location when using this tool, we need Tinder Passport. This is a paid feature, so you’ll need a premium account to use it.
But there are also some strategies you can use “trick” Tinder to make it think you’re in a place that’s different from where you really are. Whether you have a paid account and want to use the most legal method, or you are looking for a trick to change your location without paying, we’ll show you the different ways to change your location.
How do I change my location on Tinder

If you have a premium account where you Activate Tinder Passport you need to follow these steps to change your location:
