Searches & Results
- How does the search work?
Once search has been requested, our system will grab the most recent and accurate results available on Tinder for the the search criteria you provided. While the system is doing that, you will be able to look at previous results matching the search criteria. You can always check the status of your search under "My Account" section, as well as the message that appears at the top of the results page if your search is still processing.
Once the search is over, you will get an email from us with a link to check the results.
- What should I type in 'First name' field?
Tinder works on First name basis only. Your search should NOT include last name, middle name or special characters (including dots), spaces, etc... For example, if a person's name is 'John Doe' but he goes by "JJ", Or "J. Doe" - you should only be looking for 'John'. If John has a middle name that he uses often, for example "Michael", do not include it in your search - as our system shows results for "John" and "John Michael" as well - if that is the name registered on John's Tinder's account. However if John often identifies him self using his middle name only - a 2nd search for that name is recommended.
- How long does it take for a search to complete?
We know that it is important for our users to get the results fast, but we also want to provide you with the most accurate information as possible. For that reason, Search times vary and can have many variables effecting them. We do our best to provide the results within 10 Minutes or less, though in some cases it could take a bit longer. However, a Search should not take more than 40 Minutes. Once search is complete you will get an email about it.
- How do I place a search?
We require very few details before placing a search, however all of them are mandatory. They all help us narrow down the search to provide you with the best results.
What we need to make a successful search: 1. First name - Exactly as it appears on Facebook. It is important that if it has special characters or it is not in latin characters, you put it exactly as it is. please do not include the person last name. 2. Age - Doesn't have to be accurate to the day, but please put age as accurate as you can. Do not put 22 for a person who is 35, but if you are not sure if the person is 23 or 24, don't worry - put what ever you think is closer. 3. Location - this is most important. Please use the map to find the point where you think the person last used Tinder. It can be Office, Hotel, a club, friends house. It is important that you narrow it down as close as possible.
Once all the information is there, go ahead and place your search. It's that simple!

- How does Expanding / reducing search radius work?
Expanded search radius is FREE to use on an existing search and would potentially show you more results. You can always use it, but from our experience it’s most useful for places that are not densely populated.
Reducing search radius is FREE and will show you the default optimized radius that were shown initially. We found that it’s most useful for places that are densely populated.
- What does "See all results" button do?
"See all results" button will show you all results in your search area in the age specified, regardless of the name you searched for. In other words, results are not filtered by name.
- What is a profile update? why does it cost one credit?
When making a regular search, only limited information is being received on our system. Updating a Tinder profile will yield more information than regular search - it will let you know if that profile is still available on Tinder, or if it has been closed, if it is paying for premium features like Tinder+/Tinder Gold, and get you their latest pictures and profile info (*If available) such as: bio, job, school, etc...
A great benefit of a profile update is to check if the user is an active Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold member. Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold are payed Tinder subscriptions and for users we detect using payed features that comes with those subscriptions it will be shown in their profile under "Last profile sync" date. Making a profile update will let you know if a user is using payed only Tinder features (And therefor still paying to Tinder).
Updating closed profiles at a later date will show you if they have reopened their accounts. Click here to get back to the profile you were viewing
- What is recently active? why does it require a super update?
Recently active is a new feature (September 2020, updated April 2022) that will tell you if a certain user has been active.
There are few possible results for for recently active - some profiles may show "Recently active ON/OFF" - Last found during search & Recently active are 2 different things. A profile can still show on Tinder if the account is open and considered active, even if it hasn't been in the past 24 hours (or if the account has payed features, one can choose to hide that information from others). For this reason you might see recently active "OFF" but the profile was found during a search or super update - that means the account is open and Tinder is showing it to others in that location
Other may show "Was Online" - That means user was actively swiping at the location at that time.
Last but not least we can tell you if a profile was active in the time passed since it was last found during search. if any activity was recorded in the account we will let you know and the approximate time window of those changes
We can only determine "recently active" status accurately by running a search in a specific location. A super update makes a precise search in the last known location of the user, and is the most likely way to know if that user was recently active. Unfortunately that information is not available via regular update. Please note recently active status will also show for Weekly super monitor results.

- What does "Last profile sync" & "Last found during search" mean, and what is the difference between them?
"Last profile sync" is the last time any kind of information was fetched for the profile. It can either be during a regular search or during specific profile update, both will update this record.
"Last found during search" is the last time the profile came up in the results of a regular search in a specific area. When doing a profile update, this date is not updated. This is the best indicator of when an account is active.
The difference between the two is that "Last found during search" can tell you when the user was last encountered during a search, this is the best indicator of when the account was last active.
"Last profile sync" will let you know how up-to-date is the information you are seeing in this profile. Even a inactive profiles can have this date updated (As long as the profile is not closed or set to hidden).
*** We remind you that updating a specific profile yields more information than a regular search, for example - Bio, School, etc... For more information about profile update Click here.
- What does "Tinder +/Gold ACTIVE" mean?
Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold are payed Tinder subscriptions.
For users we detect using payed features that comes with those subscriptions a line "Tinder +/Gold ACTIVE on..." will be shown in their profile under "Last profile sync" date, together with the last date their payed subscription was confirmed to be active.
That line will only be there for users we detected using payed Tinder features.
If it is not there at all it means that as of the last profile sync date the user was not using Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold payed only features.
*** We remind you that updating a specific profile will tell you if he or she are still paying for premium Tinder features and yields more information than a regular search, for example - Bio, School, etc... For more information about profile update Click here.
- How can I know if a Tinder user is still active?
We recommend using both "Last found during search" & making a profile update to get the best answer to this question. As described here, "Last found during search" will let you know the last time the profile came up in the results of a regular search in a specific area. When doing a profile update, this date is not updated.
Another good way to know is if "Tinder Plus/Gold" shows as recently active for a user. Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold are payed Tinder subscriptions and for users we detect using payed features that comes with those subscriptions it will be shown in their profile under "Last profile sync" date, together with the last date their payed subscription was confirmed to be active. That line will only be there for users we detected using payed Tinder features, and if it is not there at all it means that as of the last profile sync date the user was not using Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold payed only features.
A profile update, As described here, will let you know if the profile is open, closed, or re-opened, Tinder Plus/Gold subscriber, and give you latest accurate info like Bio, school and more. we recommend reading about it more by Clicking here
