In this article, we discuss methods to keep Tinder private from your Facebook account. With all the privacy issues surrounding Facebook, the last thing you want to do is advertise to all your Facebook family and friends that you are on Tinder.
We have tried all kinds of methods and solutions to keep private while on Tinder, Bumble, OKCupid, and all kinds of online dating websites. Unfortunately no matter how much you tweak the privacy settings on Facebook, at the end of the day, your Facebook account is still connected to Tinder.
Yes, right now, you don’t have to connect any Facebook account with Tinder, however, to broaden the dating circle and to seem legitimate, you NEED to connect a Facebook account.
The ONLY foolproof way to stay anonymous on Tinder, while still connecting a Facebook account, is to create a second “fake” Facebook account, made specifically for Tinder or any online dating website. Facebook might not like that, but you can rest assured that your online privacy is secure!
We recommend creating a second Facebook account under a pseudonym for the sole purpose of linking it to a online profile. You can link it to multiple online dating websites, such as Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, OKCupid, etc. When creating the Facebook account, ensure you stay anonymous by using a disposable mobile phone numbers offered by MobileSMS.io. You will receive sms verification codes online with the disposable number. Don’t be THAT GUY that links Facebook and Tinder to his own phone number.

Have you recently purchased the Chinese international Xiaomi Hey+ (Hey Plus) smart band? If so, you will be required to have a CHINESE phone number to unlock the software. Please note that the Hey+ is apparently manufactured by RYEEX, but is distributed by Xiaomi in China.
If you’ve bought the International version (as many other buyers have), the product will have everything in Chinese (packaging, documentation, Band firmware, companion phone app software, which is called Hey+ App).
When you run the companion phone app (called Hey+ App Hey Plus App), you are REQUIRED to enter a Chinese phone number to unlock the software. Once you input a China mobile phone number, they text you a SMS Verification code at that number, and you use the code to access the Hey+App.
The problem many people are running into is that You MUST enter a Chinese phone number. They have “hardcoded” the country prefix 86 (for China). It is impossible to enter your own phone number outside of China.
