With Tinder Matchmaker, you can ask friends to recommend profiles for you without them needing to download the app or create a Tinder account.
Ask a friend to recommend profiles
If you’re a Tinder user and want to invite a friend to be your Matchmaker, here’s how it works:
- Invite a friend: Generate a unique link to share with a friend by using the option when expanding a profile you’re viewing or by going to Tinder’s Settings > Manage Matchmaker.
- Share the link: You can create up to 15 unique links per day and each link expires after 4 hours. Every friend you share a link with will see the same profiles. If you invite a friend while viewing someone’s profile, your friend will also see that specific profile.
- After sharing the link: You won’t see these shared profiles for 4 hours. Afterwards, you’ll be able to see whether a profile was recommended by one of your friends, however you’ll only see their name if they chose to enter it.
Please note, your friends cannot Like or Nope someone on your behalf. Any swipe right action on a profile by one of your friends will show up as a recommendation.
You can opt out of your profile being shown in the Matchmaker experience, end all active Matchmaker sessions or invite friends to be your Matchmaker via Settings > Manage Matchmaker.
Note: At the moment, Tinder Matchmaker has limited availability in select test markets. Not everyone on Tinder has access yet. However, anyone in the world (Tinder user or not) can use the friend experience of Matchmaker if they received an invitation.
Recommend profiles for a Tinder user
If you’ve been invited to be someone’s Tinder Matchmaker, here’s how it works:
- Access Tinder.com: Tap the link to go to Tinder Web. Note that each unique link can only be used once and expires after 4 hours. You can choose to continue as a non-Tinder user or you can sign in with an existing account (full Tinder account or account created from Swipe Party).
- Start a session: You can Like or Nope a limited number of profiles for your friend. Note that you’re only recommending profiles when you complete a swipe right action, you’re not Liking someone on your friend’s behalf.
- Share your name (or not): If you’re not signed in, you’ll get the option to enter your first name after your first recommendation so your friend knows who sent the recommendation. If you’re signed in with your Tinder account, your first name will always be shown.
