Since Snapchat popularized the screenshot notification feature, people often wonder (in fear usually) if taking a Tinder screenshot notifies the other person.
So does Tinder notify users that you’ve taken a screenshot? Will the girl ever think you’re a screenshotting weirdo? Because if she did, that would be embarrassing and likely the end of your interaction.
These concerns are all valid, and we’ll explore this issue in this article.

So does Tinder notify screenshots? Let’s look at the three different cases.
You take the Tinder screenshot. Your heart pounds. Your mind runs in circles. Oh no! Will she get a notification? Does she know what I just did? This is so awkward. I bet she thinks I’m a creepy loser who lives in my mother’s basement. Nooooooo.
Chill, you can let out a sigh of relief - Tinder does not notify the girl of screenshots you’ve taken of their profile.
So go ahead, screenshot all her pictures. Hang them on the wall.
The girl will never come to know you took those sneaky screenshots.
Unless you hung her picture on your wall, and she comes to your house after a date. Then she might call the cops.
So maybe you’re not the world’s best texter, and you constantly need to ask your friend for the perfect message to send.
Well, firstly, if you haven’t read our text guide that we suggested you read - Why not!
And secondly, if you’re looking for texting advice, take a screenshot, hundreds of them if you want to. The other person won’t get notified.
Just be sure to have the same level of charisma in person as when you texted her (using the lines your friend gave you). Because otherwise, it will be awkward.
No, you won’t get a Tinder screenshot notification when someone takes a screenshot of your Tinder.

So, what are you waiting for to take charge of your dating life?
Ever matched with a really cute girl and showed her off to your friends? Well, you’re not alone - guys LOVE to show off their cute matches to their guy friends.
It probably ties into the sense of validation we get when we show off the girls we date. And guys, you’re not alone, girls do the same as well. Ah, we humans. Narcissism runs in our genes.
Let’s look at more reasons people take screenshots on Tinder.
Sometimes people want to get opinions on the people they match with. There might be something intriguing about a profile, or maybe there’s some observation they made that share-worthy. And why wouldn’t they share stuff - if you’ve been on Tinder for any length of time, you know how varied and interesting profiles are.
This is by far the biggest reason I see people taking screenshots on the app. Let’s face it, texting is hard, and texting your Tinder match is even harder (well, not if you’re the special ones who have checked out our Tinder texting guide).
Guys often take screenshots of text messages girls send to them get texting help from their buddies (especially those with good text game). They do this because they want to send the perfect message that will make the girl interested and go on a date with him.
Some profiles are funny by design. Others are funny by accident. Either way, there’s plenty of humorous material on Tinder, and a good chuckle is a couple of swipes away.
People often share with their friends the profiles that made them laugh. If you want to get girls to laugh and get attracted to your profile, then be creative and craft an intriguing, attractive, and funny bio. You can get some tips from our bio guide here.
Though keep in mind - don’t become a clown and put yourself down just to make a girl laugh. Making fun of yourself in a demeaning way shows that you have low self-esteem, and that’s an attraction killer.
You should be able to laugh at yourself while simultaneously not taking yourself seriously. Girls can generally sense when you’re laughing at yourself in a fun way vs. a degrading way. Your humor should always help make you more attractive and not more unattractive.
To take a screenshot on an iPhone with Face ID, press the side button and the volume up button at the same time.
To take a screenshot on an iPhone with a home button, press the side or top button and the home button simultaneously.
To screenshot Tinder on an Android, press the power button and the volume down button (I guess they want it to seem like they don’t copy Apple in EVERYTHING).
The simplest way to take a screenshot on most Windows PCs is to press the PrtScn key on your keyboard. It’s usually placed in the top row or near the Function keys.
On some laptops, you have to first hold the Function Key and then press PrtScn to take screenshots.
To take a screenshot of the whole screen on Mac, press shift+command+3. To capture a portion of the screen, press shift+command+4.
