As of 2022, there are more than 75 million Tinder users worldwide. As a result, Tinder currently owns one-third of the global dating app market, and this percentage appears to be growing.
And anyone who wishes to engage in online dating can do so without revealing their true identity. You only need to add a few photos and a brief bio to your account, and you’re done. It also helps to improve one’s ego and self-confidence because they believe they are still in demand and desired.
This can also make a person more disloyal, arrogant, and less empathetic because the person believes they have complete control and can date anyone right away. It suggests that Tinder has made dating easier but also more disappointing than ever before.
Because of apps like Tinder, people can easily meet up with someone they like today without thinking about the consequences since they make looking up for casual hookups to be easier than ever.
Furthermore, there is the risk of phony accounts and scammers attempting to acquire personal information from users or manipulating their emotions into handing over money.
Tinder and other dating apps are also extremely dangerous and alluring if you have a child under the age of 18. It is because anything that appears risky or entertaining becomes much more appealing to children. However, children are unaware that they are conversing with an adult who is attempting to entice them for some sinister reason.
So purchasing a Tinder spy app might be the only way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the often hidden dangers of the dating app. There are 5 apps that I will be reviewing today and breaking down for you. And in the end, I will give you my final verdict on which one you should choose.
1. XNSPY – Overall Best For Tinder Spying
To begin our list, we’ll look at XNSPY, which combines instant messager screen recording functionality with all of the features of an advanced Tinder spy app. The app is compatible with both the iOS and Android operating systems.
The installation process and usability of the app are very beginner friendly which I liked. You simply have to install the app on the target device, sign in to your account, and then use your account to access Tinder tracking capabilities from the web browser.
Log into your dashboard account, scroll to the features menu bar on the left panel, and then select Messenger to track users’ Tinder and other instant messaging applications.
Once there, select the messaging app you want to spy on, in our instance, Tinder. And when you select Tinder, you will be able to see all of the messages we have sent and received, as well as a timestamp for each message.
Remember that in order to use this feature, you must first root the device. However, if you do so, you will be able to access not just Tinder messages but also their search criteria. It means you can see the phone user’s age, location, and sex of the partners they are seeking for.
And if you want to see the complete Tinder app usage, XNSPY’s Screen Record feature comes in helpful. Since it takes many screenshots while the user is on the app, it can collect entire threads from popular messaging services like Instagram, Messenger, Snapchat, and Signal and display the in-app experience for each of them as well.
Even if you delete their chat history from each messaging app, the screenshots remain on your dashboard. The IM screen recorder utility goes beyond end-to-end encryption in instant chat programs by recording screenshots rather than text.
By keeping a visual record of all communication threads, it enables the software to remotely monitor someone’s instant interactions. The most recent version allows users to capture screens in different aspect ratios without the chat applications failing. It is possible to record for longer periods of time and different aspect ratios enable a more detailed experience and advanced spying.
So for beginners, I liked this app the most and it is available at $7.5 per month which is the cheapest on the list.
2. Eyezy – Most Rich User Interface
The second app on the list is Eyezy which for many is an underrated Tinder spying app. It has a simple but effective UI with navy blue and white colors present throughout its dashboard.
The app has an easy installation process, although not as easy as XNSPY’s. It is great for giving you access to all of your target users’ interactions, exactly like they would when using Tinder on their devices.
Its smartphone surveillance capabilities are robust enough that they allow you to watch the target device’s Tinder activity while also protecting them from online predators and fake accounts.
It is simple to use because it can monitor Tinder and other social media platforms in stealth mode but it doesn’t allow you to monitor the device’s social media activities simultaneously because of hardware restrictions.
So you may check all send and receive messages as well as a visual representation of their
Tinder interactions. And you can also keep track of all the activities your target phone
owner attends as well as their whereabouts, interactions, and meeting times while they go on a date they found on the platform.
But it is only possible if Eyezy isn’t throttling because if it is you can’t monitor other aspects of the phone simultaneously which can be disappointing. It is available at $40 per month.
3. Cocospy – Easy To Use
Cocospy is another app that allows you to keep tabs on every Tinder action by using the spying software’s built-in tracking algorithms. The software performs best when used to quickly and surreptitiously monitor Tinder chats.
You can use it to access all of the Tinder messages as well as details on their conversations and chats that include the party’s names and time of messaging. The information is all transferred to the online account where you can access it anytime.
All of this is presented in a simple, easy-to-understand format because everything is clearly labeled on the online control panel. All of this is captured by Cocospy’s keylogger so the texts are loaded to the server instantly.
But a downside to this is that it doesn’t show the phone owner’s Tinder account usage such as settings, the profiles they swipe on, and their search parameters, etc as it only shows the typed texts they send and not the screenshots like XNSPY does.
It is available at $40 per month.
4. Flexispy – Most Systematic
Flexispy is another spy app for Tinder that is slowly gaining popularity for its stealth tracking and customizable Tinder tracking capabilities. Flexispy employs a man-in-the-middle technique to circumvent the end-to-end encryption mechanism built into many instant messaging apps and online dating apps such as Tinder.
Once the page loads a temporary webpage in the phone’s browser, the text and multimedia are saved to it. Because it is not displayed to mobile device users, they are unaware of this webpage.
When the phone’s screen is turned off, the webpage’s data is transferred to the monitoring party’s online account and removed from the phone’s browser, leaving no trace. It is a dependable option because it does not rely upon the device’s storage and can operate even with insufficient space.
However, it does depend on the phone’s network speed. As a result, the cellular network will consume a significant amount of bandwidth if the data being uploaded is quite large. And because of this, Flexispy’s Tinder spying speed is slower compared to other spy apps, especially XNSPY.
Flexispy’s slow algorithms also cause the target device to become slow and laggy which is never good when you want discretion and want to avoid any conflict with the person whom you are tracking.
Because if the phone continues to perform poorly for a prolonged time, the person will definitely get suspicious and perform a factory reset or an antivirus scan which will detect or even remove the spy app. One-month subscription to Flexispy ‘Lite’ costs $30.
5. Hoverwatch – Result-Oriented
And last but not least we come to Hoverwatch. It s a safe choice if you want to remotely watch how someone uses Tinder across many devices. Windows, Mac, and Android-powered devices can all run Hoverwatch.
Depending on how many devices you want to monitor, there are three pricing tier lists. Although you can download the application for free, you can only use it for a week before your free trial period ends.
But given that iPhones are the most popular smartphone brand in North America, the fact that it isn’t available on iOS devices is a significant oversight on the part of the developers.
Although it strengthens its security and privacy protections, Hoverwatch makes up for it by routinely updating the program, allowing it to snoop on Tinder messages remotely. Plus you can turn the tracking option off remotely to prevent any suspicions, which isn’t found in other apps of this category.
Hoverwatch uses screenshots to monitor Tinder as well, however unlike XNSPY, it doesn’t put the screenshots into the appropriate folders, making it difficult to manage and compile evidence across other dating apps and you must first root the smartphone in order to access this feature.
The app enables you to look through messages sent via Tinder and other platforms like Facebook, Snapchat, WhatsApp, and Instagram. However, because it relies on screenshots, it doesn’t display the timestamp separately for each message like XNSPY does, which again makes it difficult to quickly navigate through the messages by date.
This isn’t the most user-friendly app out there because sorting and finding through screenshots can be difficult if you use Hoverwatch, especially if time is of the essence. A one-month subscription costs $25 per month.
Which Tinder Spying App Should You Go For?
We have a clear winner today and that is XNSPY. This is because of several reasons. Firstly the app is highly compatible so it can work on a variety of different phones. It is easy to use, making it appealing to non-techies and new users.
It is also the cheapest spy app on the list which is great because it opens up for a variety of users who may not have a loose budget to work with. And it doesn’t compromise on security, which is really important because it prevents third parties from getting a hand on someone’s Tinder data otherwise they could be blackmailed.
