THESE days, it’s pretty commonplace for couples to meet on dating apps – so it shouldn’t be such a shock when your boyfriend still shows up on Tinder and Bumble. Right?
TikTok star Trinity claims Tinder won’t show profiles that haven’t been active in over a weekCredit: Tik Tok
In a clip which has been viewed over 2.4 MILLION times, TikTok user Trinity claims profiles will stop showing up on the Tinder app if they haven’t been active for a week.
In other words, if your mates spot his profile on Tinder and he says it’s “old” then he’s probably lying.
Trinity wrote: “Just a [public service announcement], if they’re like ‘oh yeah that’s an old Tinder account they saw, I deleted the app a long time ago.’
“Tinder only shows profiles that have been active within 7 days…”
The clip racked up over 405k ‘likes’Credit: Tik Tok
The clip has racked up over 405,000 “likes” and left viewers stunned.
One replied: “So my calculations were correct this whole time.”
Another added: “That’s how I busted my boyfriend.”
A third wrote: “And here I thought I was crazy and this boy had the audacity to lie to my face.”
Meanwhile, another tweeted: “Also Tinder didn’t ‘automatically upload new pics from Facebook”. Be smarter please.”
That said, others claimed that people who have swiped through enough profiles will eventually reach inactive users.
Earlier this year, one woman tweeted: “I had my Tinder profile circulating for months while not being on the app at all since I was in a relationship.
“Your profile continues to circulate, it is just moved into an inactive pile,” another claimed. “Being inactive just means that it is less likely people will come across your profile, unless they either put very limited search options and you fit in them, or they swipe through a lot of people.”
However, others claimed the only way to stop your profile appearing for other people is to deactivate it in the app.
