Why tinder does not allow changing names?

The privacy policy of tinder has some clauses that do not allow the user to change their name. The reason behind this can be to avoid fake profiles. Maybe tinder wants to ensure that the profiles are not fake, and the information tinder has about you is completely correct. Irrespective of all these restrictions, people still have a fake account on tinder. Of course, nobody wants their family to know about their tinder profile, so it’s obvious that tinder has some fake profiles.

How to change name on tinder without deleting the account?

So without wasting any more time, let’s come to the topic, how to change name on tinder without permanently deleting the account. Yes, you read it right; there is a method through which you can change your tinder name without deleting your account and losing your data and matches.

You can accomplish this task through Facebook.

While creating a tinder account, tinder gives you the option of linking your tinder account via Facebook account or contact number. If you have registered your tinder account with your Facebook account, you can easily change your name by changing the name of your Facebook account. Tinder asks you to register through Facebook or contact number because tinder fetches your other information from there. It’s like cross-examining the information provided by you.

For changing your name on tinder through Facebook (meta) account, follow the steps given below:-

  1. Firstly, open facebook (now meta) on your browser or phone.
  2. Open the menu bar by clicking on three lines at the top right side of the page.
  3. Scroll down towards the option of settings and privacy.
  4. Once you see the option of settings and privacy, tap on it.
  5. Now tap on the option of settings.
  6. Click on the option of personal information under account settings.
  7. Click on the option of the name.
  8. Once you tap on the option of name, it will allow you to edit your name.
  9. Enter your new name.
  10. Click on the option of review change to preview your new name.
  11. Next, enter your Facebook account password on the preview page.
  12. Lastly, tap on the option of save changes.

Limitations of the above-given method:-

Once you update your name on Facebook, your tinder account name will be automatically changed. However, this method has its limitations. You can change your tinder account name through Facebook only if you have registered your tinder account through your Facebook account. If you have registered your tinder account through your contact number, then sadly, you will not be able to change the name of your tinder account.

Suppose you don’t want to change the name of your Facebook account. In that case, this method will trouble you because the above-given method either allows you to change the name of both your tinder account and Facebook account or not at all allow you to change the name of the tinder account.

If you don’t want to change the name of your Facebook account, or you don’t want your family and friends to know that you use tinder. You can use this hack, though it is not a legitimate method of changing your name on a tinder account. And this article does not encourage anyone to use such methods.

How to change name on tinder without changing the name of your official or main Facebook account?

Many people do not like to keep their Facebook name the same as their original name; instead, they prefer some creative name. Now it is obvious that such people don’t like to change their Facebook name. If you are one of them, then this method is something meant for you.

For changing the name of your tinder account without changing the name of your official Facebook account, you have to create a new Facebook account. While creating a new Facebook account, don’t forget to name it on the similar name that you want on your tinder profile.

Now you must be thinking what is the use of creating a new Facebook account. After creating a new Facebook account, you have to register your tinder account with your new Facebook account that you have created recently. Once you have registered your tinder account with a new Facebook account, the name of your tinder account will automatically change. The most important advantage of using this method is that you don’t need to change the name of your official Facebook account.

Warning:-

Changing the name on tinder is not authentic; if tinder feels that your tinder Id is fake or you are breaking the privacy policy of the tinder app, then you have ready for its consequences. As a consequence, tinder can ban you or deny access to your account. So, you have to be very precautious while changing your name on tinder. In the end, I would say that you should avoid making fake profiles on tinder because it can lead to punishment if tinder finds out.
