Does Tinder Notify Screenshots? Here’s What Users Have To Know

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclaimer for more information.

So, your recent Tinder photo has some outrageous photos, hilarious pickup lines, or said something that makes you want to face palm or delete the app entirely.

Do you screenshot the profile or message and send it to your friends?

And, if you do, does Tinder notify the other person of screenshots?

Well, this post is explaining everything you need to know about screenshotting on Tinder, if it’s safe to do so, and what the potential risks are.

Let’s get to it!

Does Tinder Notify Screenshots?

Tinder doesn’t notify people of screenshots. This means you can screenshot a person’s profile photos or even your conversation and the other person won’t receive a notifcation that you did.

You don’t need to enable a specific setting for this either; Tinder never notifies screenshots, so you can do this whenever you want.

This is the same system dating apps like Bumble and Hinge use, so yes, you can screenshot on Tinder without the other person knowing.

How To Take A Screenshot On Tinder

Figuring out how to take a screenshot on Tinder isn’t complicated because you take one the same way you take other screenshots.

This can vary slightly depending on if you have an Android or iOS and which model of phone you have.

For me, I screenshot on my old and clunky Motorola G by holding down the power button and volume down button, but again, this is different for every phone.

How To Share Tinder Profiles With People

When you take a screenshot on Tinder, an option also pops up to share someone’s profile with other people.

This is actually pretty cool because you can send a SMS link or link on social media for other people to check out the same profile.

So, if you spot someone all of your friends know or a profile you have to share, you can send it to your group.

If people have the link and also have the Tinder app on their phone, they can then checkout the profile you’re sharing right in their app!


This is a way for everyone you know to swipe on the profile in question, which can be funny, or to take a closer look for themselves.

There’s also a nearby share button which is cool since you can share a profile with everyone around you.

Should You Screenshot On Tinder?

So, Tinder doesn’t notify screenshots, but should you still take them?

Well, there’s no rule against this, but you have to be careful when sharing private information and photos online, especially if the other party doesn’t know you’re doing it.

The last thing you want is to roast someone in your group chat only for that information to come out later.

Not only is that not being a gentleman, but it’s also a way to ruin your reputation or hurt another person.

That said, everyone screenshots and shares stuff from Tinder and other dating apps.

Just make sure you’re classy when you do it, and never type or send anything you wouldn’t want out in public.

The One Risk To Watch Out For

The one risk you should remember when screenshotting on Tinder is that the screenshots are still in your gallery!

I’ve actually had an experience when I took a screenshot of a woman’s Instagram account I was going on a date with.

I sent the account to the guys (they were curious, what can I say.)

But later on the date, we were showing each other some travel photos and I had to quickly delete the screenshot before handing my phone over.

This is a stupid mistake, but it happens more often than you not with all sorts of photos you wouldn’t want a potential date to see…if you know what I mean.

So long story short, take screenshots on Tinder if you want, but remember to delete them at some point!
