Tinder is a loved dating platform with millions of users. You can view someone’s profile, bio, and interest while dating online for free, and if lucky, you can meet up with someone.
To find a match, people post their pictures, but Tinder has offered a solution to link an Instagram account to Tinder. With that, someone can view your Instagram photos on Tinder.
To add Instagram to Tinder, you must first have active accounts on both platforms. Next, open the Tinder app and navigate to your profile. Under the edit profile, locate the “Connect Instagram” button and follow the on-screen instructions to link your Instagram account with Tinder. Once connected, someone can view your recent Instagram photos from Tinder.
This guide covers the reasons why you should add your Instagram to Tinder. Further, it discusses what happens when you connect Instagram to Tinder and the steps of connecting and removing Instagram from Tinder. With that being said, let’s dive in.
Should You Link Instagram to Tinder?
Everyone on Tinder is trying to find their match. If you are okay with your potential match seeing your Instagram posts and getting to know more details about you before meeting them, adding Instagram is a good idea.
Besides, someone can view your Instagram feeds and even follow you on Instagram to see what you post if you have a public account.
If you feel you should first know your match or meet them before getting to the extreme of them learning more details about your Instagram account, you shouldn’t rush to connect it. Moreover, if you are concerned about privacy, you should consider keeping the two platforms separate.
Ultimately, it’s upon you whether you choose to link your Instagram account to Tinder or not. But here’s the kicker; if you are unsure, let’s discuss what happens after linking the two platforms to help make the decision.
What Happens After Linking Instagram to Tinder?
Once you add Instagram to Tinder, anyone viewing your profile will access your 34 most recent pictures on Instagram. Besides, your match can access your Instagram account; if it’s public, they can view all your posts.
Note that the recent pictures will still appear even if your account is private, but if they directly access your Instagram, they won’t see your pictures. Tinder creates a clickable link to your Instagram account, and people on Tinder can stalk you before matching you to get more details about you and confirm your account isn’t fake.
Lastly, by accessing your Instagram account via Tinder, someone can track your other social networks if you’ve added their details on your Instagram.
