Search Social Media by Phone Number to Investigate Your Tinder Matches

Think you may have found the love of your life? It’s actually really easy to do a social media lookup on your new flame.

If you need to investigate your Tinder match, you can find social media accounts with a phone number!

There are many people that use dating apps and use them often. Dating apps are becoming the new way to find love.

Honestly, it’s easy to see why.

Dating apps are convenient and fun. You can learn everything you need to know about your love interest without even having to start a conversation. If you get rejected, it isn’t as big of a deal because you are behind a screen.

However, there are some downsides to dating apps.

Dating apps can be risky.

The dangers of online dating are pretty clear. Not only do unstable people lurk for their next life to screw with on dating apps, but honesty isn’t always the most used policy. Most people know how to be careful, but do they actually follow through?

Here Are Some Ways People Lie on Their Tinder Profile:

  • They use old photos to lie about their age.
  • They use highly edited photos to lie about their appearance.
  • They used stolen and false information to catfish vulnerable people.
  • They lie about themselves and play games to steal and/or hurt for their own person gain.
  • They don’t have the job that they state they do.

I know what you are thinking: That it’s confusing and impossible to find love on a dating app!

How do you know that the person you are interested in is being truthful on their dating profiles?

Don’t give up hope if you are unsure of the validity of online dating! There are ways to validate confirm or deny anyone’s authenticity. It just takes some investigation.

We all have done some online digging. Either on an ex, a colleague or other relationship. We all know that the internet has hordes of information waiting to dig up on almost anyone. The most important thing you can do to stay safe while mate shopping is to find their social media profiles. People reveal way more than necessary on social networking sites such as Facebook and Snapchat.

Here are the steps you need to take when you are interested in learning more about a Tinder match:

Step 1: Chat with Your Tinder Match

Get to know the person first to get a vibe from them.

If they ask for money right away or aren’t willing to talk to you before meeting you, something fishy is up.

If you can get their phone number, you can use our reverse phone lookup tool to learn more about them, such as their full name, email, even their educational background.

Even if you know only their first name, last initial, and general location, you may be able to use our tool to access their information. Simply enter their first name and last initial in our search box as well as the city you think they live in.

It’s actually really simple to find social media accounts with a phone number.

Once you have more information on your match such as location, phone number, and full name, it will be easy to do a social media lookup.

A little social media trick: To find your Tinder match’s social media accounts, you can search social media by phone number on Facebook and Instagram.

How To Perform An Instagram Social Media Lookup By Phone Number

You can do the same search social media by phone number trick on Instagram as well.

To search Instagram by phone number, you will need to say your Tinder match’s phone number under your contacts in your phone.

Then, go to Instagram and click on the three bars on the right side of the screen.

After that, simply press “discover people”. If their number is linked to their profile then you will have performed a successful Instagram lookup by phone number.

Step 4: Add Your Tinder Match on Snapchat

People tend to share the most private moments that they feel comfortable sharing on Snapchat. If you still want to learn more about your love match and you’ve gotten this far, the next step would be adding them on Snapchat.

Snapchat photos and chats aren’t forever, like other social media platforms. Even if a Facebook post is deleted, someone may have screenshotted your post so that people can see it forever. Facebook messages are easily traceable unless all parties involved delete the message.

On Snapchat, a snap only lasts a few seconds and a story lasts only a day.

If anyone screenshots something on Snapchat, the person who posted the snap will be notified. That makes people too uncomfortable in most situations to screenshot a snap. Rarely is anything documented permanently that was posted Snapchat.

People are braver and more careless when sharing and chatting on Snapchat, therefore you can learn more about your potential mate through Snapchat versus any other social media platform.

Step 5: Use Your Tinder Match’s Username to Your Advantage

Once you’ve found all of the social media account that you can, you can also take the usernames on these social media accounts and perform a Google search on them. You may find out even more about the person- such as other dating profiles and websites that you would normally not look under.

What to Do If Your Tinder Match Checks Out

Here are some things you can do:

  • If they gave you their cell phone number, send them a cute message!
  • Something cute you can text: “Guess Who?”. Not only is this a cute first text, but if they aren’t giving out their number to everyone, they will should know who is texting them.
  • Now that you know a little bit about the person, you can even ask them on a date. Just make sure that if your match says yes that your first date is a public place. You can never be too safe.
  • If you meet them, make sure you wear something that makes you feel confident and comfortable.
  • If your match didn’t personally give you their number and you had to do some digging, don’t tell them about it. Honestly is the best policy, but you can tell them later in your relationship if you hit it off. Telling your match right off the bat may scare them away.

Here’s the Scoop

Social media has become the new way to share anything. People get personal on social media, against their better judgment. Use the tips above to try and learn more about your match and find out if they are the right fit for you.

Always remember that safety is key. Even though we live in a “modern” society, it’s best not to spend the night with a stranger. There are many risks involved with not knowing who you are getting involved with (if you know what I mean).
