How to block someone from seeing your profile on Tinder


Tinder is a popular dating app used by teens in several countries. Some people use it to find true love while some only use it to find someone to hook up. If you are also on Tinder, your friends or relatives may find your profile while swiping profiles on Tinder. To avoid this situation, many people prefer not to add original names and photos. But a profile with a fake photo and the fake name ends up having less chance of getting matches. Now Tinder allows you to hide your profile from some people by blocking them. In this article, I will tell you how to hide your profile from selected people, so they cannot see you on Tinder.
