How do I report a fake Tinder profile?
Tinder can be a great way to meet people, find a date, have some fun, or even meet the love of your life. But be warned, there are some fake profiles out there. Some are even powered by bots and aren't even real people. There are many scams on Tinder; some people may be trying to sell you something or even steal your bank details or identity.
Signs that a profile is fake
There are a few ways to tell that a profile is fake; lookout for the following.
Lack of information
There's no information on their profile. Most people have basic information on their profile's bio, such as their occupation and a bit about themselves. If there's nothing, this is a sign of a fake profile.
Only one photo
If there's any reason to believe that the person you're talking to isn't the person in the photo, it's likely to be a fake profile. This includes only one image, a picture that looks photoshop or professionally done. Photos of celebrities or photos of different people.
Replying too quickly
If you send a message on Tinder and the person replies within seconds, every time, this is a sign that you're talking to a bot. You may also notice that they send answers that don't make sense.
