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.

How many times do we need to hear this story? Another year, another scandal. After the Cambridge Analytical Scandal and the massive security breach, now we hear about another privacy scandal?
Facebook released an app which monitors everything the user does on the phone. Everything from kids’ SMS text messages, to private emails, to purchase histories, to app usage.
TechCrunch reported the app, which has been available since 2016, offers users up to $20 a month for installing it. Dubbed “Facebook Research” app, it records a user’s phone and web activity. The app is limited to 13 and 35 year olds.
Facebook came out and said it would remove the Apple version, though they have not mentioned anything regarding the Android version.
Facebook’s massive desire to track us online is mostly driven by fear another competitor will overtake them. By spying on what people do on their phones, it can tell Facebook when a new service/app starts becoming popular with teens. For example, after noticing Snapchat’s early momentum and unsuccessfully attempting to buy the rival social network, Facebook copied some of its core features. But the extent to which Facebook appears to be willing to go to monitor teens’ digital lives seems bound to provoke yet another privacy backlash.
