Tinder, how to get verified in 2024

Want to get the blue checkmark as a shiny new profile icon to prove you're Tinder verified? We'll walk you through everything you need to know to get verified on Tinder.
How to Get Verified on Tinder?

The wild west of the dating app is over. People are fed up with fake profiles, and that means online dating sites have needed to roll out verification procedures to increase user trust and keep people from leaving their platforms.

With Tinder Platinium, users can see who has already liked them before they swipe. This is a great feature for people who want to avoid wasting time on people who aren't interested in them.

Tinder Platinium users will have access to "Super Likes". Super Likes are like regular likes, but they show up as a blue star instead of a green heart. When someone Super Liked you, it means that they really like you and want to get your attention. If you Super Like someone, they'll get a notification that says "It's a Super Like!" and it will stand out from all of the other notifications in their inbox.

But how do you get the coveted blue checkmark?

There are a variety of steps in the Tinder verification process, and we're going to walk them through you all, so you can add that blue checkmark to your own tinder profile.

What is the Tinder verification process?

No matches?

ROAST can help you understand WHY and HOW to fix it.


Like many social media platforms, Tinder realized they needed to roll out an additional security feature if they wanted to maintain user confidence. Just like Twitter, blue checkmarks now identify a verified profile.

The process is simple to complete (as long as you're a real person!) and getting verified on tinder shouldn't take more than a few minutes of active time.

Tinder uses your phone or computer's camera to perform a comparison with your existing profile photos in order to confirm that you're the person you claim to be, and not one of the many fake profiles that's clogging up the system.

So as long as you're not using Tinder for anything shady, and have some very basic tech know-how (nothing trickier than setting up your Tinder profile in the first place) you should sail through the process in no time.

You can also change your name on Tinder. To change your name on Tinder, open the Tinder app and go to the Settings menu. Tap on "Edit Profile" and enter your new name in the "Name" field.

Tinder Photo verification

Tinder Photo verification

No matches?

ROAST can help you understand WHY and HOW to fix it.


Tinder explains photo verification process by specifying that it has two steps: pose verification and face verification.

By having these two components, Tinder makes sure that you're not only an actual human being that exists, but that the human you claim to be is the same one that's going through the verification process.

Step 1: Open Tinder

Open up the Tinder app on your phone and click over to profile icon. If you don't have an account yet, you will have to create one.

Step 2: Click on checkmark

Click on the gray checkmark currently by your name, indicating that your profile is not yet verified.

Step 3: Click on Verify

Choose "verify your profile" in order to begin the process

Step 4: Take a selfie

Here comes the fun part! Tinder will show you a pose that you need to copy while taking a selfie. Make sure you get it just right!

Step 5: Submit

Once you're happy with your pose results, upload the photo and click "submit for review."

Step 6: Take a few more selfies

Rinse and repeat! That's right, you need to go through the pose verification process a second time as a security measure. But don't worry, you're an expert at it now.

Step 7: Get verified

Now, you wait patiently (or not so patiently) while Tinder's human assisted ai technology decides whether or not you made the cut!


If Tinder asks you to copy a pose that you're unable to do, don't worry. You can exit the verification flow at any time and start over. Just like getting a do-over on a CAPTCHA, the system won't penalize you for needing a second try, and it won't work against your chances to get verified on Tinder.

While it's one more step to go through, photo verification is a worthwhile process. You're looking for ways to stand out on Tinder in a good way — not a bad one. And verification is so easy, it could raise questions if you don't bother to go through the process to upgrade your gray check to a blue tick. After all, what do you have to hide? Don't give potential matches any reason to be suspicious.

Instead, make it clear that the person they're talking to is the same person in the pictures they've seen. That will make people feel much more confidant when it's time to accept an offer of a date.

With Tinder passport, you can change your location and match with people from all over the world. This is great for people who want to explore new places and meet new people. You can also use Tinder passport to view profiles of people in other cities.
