With the launch of Tinder Online, a feature that users have wished for since the beginning of Tinder has finally become a reality: signing up for Tinder without a Facebook account.
How to sign up for Tinder from Android, iOS, or web: Step-by-step guide – Information News
Using Tinder on a desktop computer is also an option. It’s worth noting that you don’t need to use the latest browser update to use this feature; in fact, you don’t even need to build an account.
On the mobile edition, the option now appears alongside Facebook. It’s worth remembering that Facebook hasn’t been entirely excluded from the equation.
You must also (passively) agree to the terms of Tinder’s Account Kit in order to log in. This means that Facebook still has your phone number and first name, but (hopefully) much fewer details than if you had a real Facebook account, let alone one that was active.

To choose the lesser of two evils, simply pick “Log in with phone number” from the drop-down menu.
This is where you include your phone number.
Enter the code that was sent to you via text message
Provide a correct email address
Choose a password
Fill in your first name
Choose your sex
At this point, Android will ask if you want Tinder to have access to your gallery. If you want to keep going, you’ll have to agree to this. To use Tinder, you must consent to let it access your location data and have location services switched on.
Finally, pick your main profile picture and click “DONE” to complete your account formation. If you’re having trouble deciding which image to use, I hope you’ll find this guide helpful.
So that’s how the sign-up process functions without Facebook, but why would you want to?
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Tinder Without Facebook
Advantage: Tinder now asks for your phone number as well when making a Facebook-based account. – If you use your phone number to log in, you’ll save one move by not having to build a new Facebook account.
Demerit: Any time you log into Tinder, you’ll be required to enter an SMS code (Note: Not every time you open the app.) If you live or work in an area with Wi-Fi but no mobile coverage, this can easily become frustrating.
Demerit: Tinder can no longer remember you by your Facebook username, but by your phone number.
This makes it difficult to reset your password later, as it is much easier to create a new FB account than it is to obtain a new phone number. You also can’t use free online burner numbers or your friends’ numbers due to the aforementioned point.
– You won’t know whether you and your match have any common interests right away.
Given that Tinder only imports your most recent 100 likes, overlapping Facebook likes may not be the best predictor of compatibility, but a mutual love of Monty Python’s Ministry of Silly Walks can be a great conversation starter and transform a right swipe into a Super Like.
In light of this, you may want to propose the following compromise: Creating a “fake” Facebook account with no photos, contacts, or most personal details, and just providing your name (your first name should be real), and one hundred hand-picked likes you’d be happy to share with a match, using a disposable E-Mail address.
This will allow you to use Tinder without disclosing too many details to the Zucc. If you ever want to use your phone number, here is one useful tip:
As previously mentioned, you can sign up without using your phone number, which may be useful if you’ve already used it and are concerned about Tinder remembering your score, don’t have cell service at home, or simply don’t want to provide it. Instead, use your landline phone number.
