One of the common problems we encounter on Tinder is Fake-Profile. Many try to impersonate someone they are not in order to fool potential partners. To avoid this kind of problems we have the possibility to to verify our accountso that we can prove that we really are ourselves.
When we talk about verification, we can actually mean two different things. First, account verification so no one can create an account with our phone number. And on the other side the profile verificationso that we can prove to other people that we are a real person.
In this article, we’ll show you how to do both. Tinder will ask you to verify your account before you can use the app. On the other hand is the profile verification completely voluntary and you can perform them or not, as you wish. It is definitely advisable to create a verified profile so that others will know that you are a real person and there is a greater chance that you will get a match.
What are verified accounts on Tinder?
Verified accounts on Tinder have nothing to do with verified accounts on other applications like Twitter. A person who has a verified account is not necessarily a popular or prominent person. It’s simply a person who has gone through the necessary steps for the app to verify that they are who they say they are. Usually, Tinder simply asks you to take a selfie to verify that the photo on your profile is really you.
Here’s how to avoid something that unfortunately happens all too often on the dating site: some people post a photo of someone who is very attractive, but has nothing to do with the person we’re talking to. So if you’re on Tinder with a verified account, do you know that you are really talking to the person in the photos.
Reasons to verify your Tinder account
As we explained earlier, Tinder doesn’t force you to verify your account, so you don’t have to if you don’t want to. Verified Accounts however, get a match more often. That’s because many people who have had bad experiences are suspicious of people who can’t prove their accounts are legit. By verifying your account, you show your interlocutor that you are sincere, which is always appreciated.
