When it comes to finding love, or at least finding a fling, it’s now easier than ever to discover like-minded individuals thanks to dating apps. Tinder, Bumble, Hinge and Plenty of Fish connect you with single strangers in your area – or even further afield. But have you ever felt like you might have missed your perfect match? Well, it turns out some apps limit the amount of matches you see, unless you pay to upgrade your account. But NottinghamshireLive have shared a sneaky way to get around paying a subscription fee for Tinder users.
If you don’t want to buy Tinder Gold, don’t worry, you don’t need to. You can see more of your potential matches, simply by logging into the desktop app. When you sign into the site, there’s a section where Tinder invites you to buy a Gold membership, which blurs out the faces of people who have liked you. But you can easily unblur the images on Google Chrome.
To try the trick for yourself, you have to start by right clicking on an image and then selecting ‘inspect’ from the menu that pops up. Once clicked, a box should show up on the right-hand side of the Chrome screen, filled with confusing looking code. Don’t panic.
Instead right-click the picture again and press ‘inspect’ once more. The white box of code at the side, should still show code, but somewhere amongst it you should be able to see the word ‘blur’.
However the hack only lets you see the other person’s photo and name – you can’t go to their profile or match with them this way. But if you really like the look of them, you could always sign up for the Gold subscription, which should actually allow you to view their profile and more. Good luck Tindering! May the dating odds be ever in your favour.
