How To See Who Liked You On Tinder

How to see who likes you on TinderHow to see who liked you on Tinder?


The usual way:


When you are using the Tinder application it can be confusing to find out who liked you. Ordinarily, you have to like them first in order to see if they liked you.  You “like” someone by swiping right on their photo or by marking that you like them by clicking the heart icon. If they also liked you then there is a match and Tinder will let you know.

I’ve gone out of my way to scour the internet to find some pretty awesome tricks to find out who likes you on Tinder even before they like you.

Tinder Notifications:

Tinder Notifications

Whenever you receive a like that creates a match, or a “super like”, Tinder will send you an email notification. While you can disable this function in your settings it is recommended not to as it is the easiest way to see who has liked you.

All you have to do is click the notification and the app will automatically start; then go to your matches and see who has liked you.

Tinder Secret Strategy:


A little known way of finding if someone else has liked your profile is through liking the first few people you are shown each day.

Let me explain, Tinder will serve up the people who have liked you since you last opened the app right at the beginning each time you log in. This provides a level of instant satisfaction.

So all you have to do is go through your list, like all or some of them back and a match will be formed. The few downsides to this are simple, if no one has liked you, they won’t show up on your list of people to like.  Also if you don’t actually like them you will show up as a match and they may contact you.

Other Applications That Work With Tinder


Yes, people have created other applications to show you who liked you before Tinder does. Examples are the applications “Flame for Tinder” and “Bonfire”. These applications hack into Tinder directly so that you can view who has liked you.

While they are controversial, they do provide you information that is otherwise not available over Tinder directly. The reliability and functionality of these applications varies greatly, since they rely on stealing privacy information from Tinder.

The downside of this method is that by using their application you support stealing privacy information from Tinder.

The Paid Way To See Who Likes you on Tinder


In June 2017 Tinder started allowing their Tinder Gold customers to see who liked them on Tinder with their “Likes You” feature. Along with this service you also get “Passport, Rewind, Unlimited Likes, five Super Likes per day, one Boost per month, and more profile controls”.  You can buy this service as an in app purchase in Tinder.

Tinder FAQ

Popular Questions Asked:

Is Matched the same as Liked on Tinder?


A match is when both parties, you and the person you are liking, have liked each other via the app.

So while finding a match is not quite the same as simply finding someone who has liked you, it does indicate that someone has liked you.

Tinder is designed with privacy in mind, therefore you shouldn’t, without help of a third party program, be able to see if someone likes you without you liking them. This maintains Tinder’s discreet element.  This is especially important to many young female dating site users who often get bombarded, night and day, with requests from much older men they are not interested in dating.

This means you can’t normally see if someone has liked you, but you can see when both of you like each other, resulting in a match; the only exception to this rule being “super-likes” which you can use once a day.

Is a Super Like the same as a Regular Like, and what is a Super Like anyway?


The short answer no, the long answer is kind of; let me explain. A “super like” is a feature that was added in late 2015 as a way to boost the success rate of matches. You only get to use one a day, so receiving one means someone else has highlighted you as someone they “Super Liked” that day.  It may be an indication that you are the type of person that that person goes for. If that person is also your type, then you are in luck.

In my opinion, dating apps like Tinder have the advantage over meeting people in day to day activities in one very important way.  You are more likely to find someone whose type you are and whose type is yours (if you have one…not everyone does) then you would just going to bars and meeting people in classes or whatever. At least on the physical attraction level, its a start. Then you can meet in person to decide if you are intellectually and emotionally attracted to each other, assuming you want that kind of connection in your life at this moment.

Super Likes function the same as any other like. With a super like the other person still needs to like you back in order for a match to form, and communication is still barred until then.

The difference is, you can see the other person has liked you before you like them because a notification will pop up. Also they will have a highlighted blue profile outline.Tinder refers to these likes as “super powers”, but really they are just enhanced likes.

Tinder makes finding someone who liked you, super easy to handle by utilizing its great G.U.I.

  1. im pretty sure all the matches ive gotten are bots kus their messages are all exactly the same

  2. Your post still didn’t reach my question. My question was, “how can i tell if someone liked me on tinder?”You guys should at least have a heart icon or star under their photo instead of us wasting several minutes finding the person.

    • You mean Tinder should tell you upfront while you are swiping who likes you? I think the reason they don’t is for security for women. That is my impression anyways. If you want that feature in a dating app, try OKcupid and pay for the A service. That service does mark who has liked you when you are swiping.

    • If you use the match download with tinder it will tell you who liked you and you can began to communicate

  3. Good grief, those poor women having the man they like shown that they like them. Definitely a security for women issue. No it’s because Tinder wants you to swipe and use up your likes and your super likes so you then have to pay them money. It’s always about the money, not the security for women or those evil men.

    • LOL. I just see a lot written on how Tinder is designed for security for women, so I guess they feel that even someone liking you is a form of unwelcome contact for some women.

  4. Does anyone know what the secret admirer is about

  5. I tried both “Flame for Tinder” and “Bonfire” but none worked for me, another app “tindr fire” worked for me on my android.

    • Thanks for the tip on what app to use to see who liked you on Tinder

    • Thanks Ali, This worked for me, ill recommend it for anyone else to try.

  6. I can’t find an answer to my question. When someone Super Likes you, a notification pops up on my phone. When I click on it it takes me into my Tinder. Sometimes there’s no evidence of any super like anywhere, even if I swipe they usually pop up, but sometimes not. BUT the original notification on my phone disappears, it gets deleted and I cannot click on it again. It does not get stored in email or anywhere else. Where does it go?

  7. Flame for Tinder definitely doesn’t work. It had 2-3 profiles under the “who likes you” & if you close & reopen the app they disappear. If you like those profiles back they don’t appear in the “matched” section meaning they never actually liked you to begin with.

  8. If you reduce your distance to the minimum amount (2km), then anyone who has swiped right outwith that distance will still show in your Tinder search. So you can see who liked you and like back, guaranteed match everytime. Tinder does not block others outside your set search area from seeing you and swiping right, it just filters them out for your viewing, this way the Tinder experience delivers more faces to swipe on, which keeps people keen. Try it, this genuinely works

    • Thanks for the tip!

    • Spot on Rich. I also do this. When you login set it to the minimum distance and if someone has mathched. WALLAH!. Dunno if it works in a densely populated area

    • Both apps worked for me, thanks Julie! Points to Rich, it did work better with a reduced distance. Thank you!

  9. I am new on Tinder and I did not know that if I swiped to the left I will not get the chance to like a person again. Is there a way so that I can find them again so that I can give them a like? Will it help if I delete my account and start over?

  10. So I downloaded the app om my phone, liked a few people, got the icon with 3+ in the center I think telling me that I had 3 likes. “New Matches” in red above the circle, “Messages” in red below the circle. When I touch the circle I get “Get Tinder Gold”, 3+ people already like you, with pricing for various plans with a “continue” button below it. Do I have to have a paid subscription to respond to the likes?
