Tinder has unique features. Most people who use Tinder don’t know all the complete features, including about age. For those who set the wrong age from the get-go, might currently get confused to set the correct age. Here’s how to change age on Tinder easily.
When you create a new Tinder account, either with/without Facebook/phone number, you have to set your actual age. But, some people might still choose the wrong age or inadvertently choose their Facebook account’s age which might be incorrect.
This leaves a problem for Tinder users who want to change their age.
When you want to change age on Tinder, you won’t see any option that lets you change age. But, you hear some of your friends that they’re able to change their age despite the limitation.
How to Change Age on Tinder with Facebook
There’s still a trick that is able to change your age on Tinder. But, with one requirement: your Tinder account should be registered with Facebook in the first place.
How? By changing your Facebook age.
Facebook allows you to change age as many times as you want, but still with limits of course. If you’ve changed your age on Facebook, you may have to wait for few days to be able to change the age for the second time.
If you haven’t, here’s how to do that:
Simply go to your Facebook account. Open your Facebook profile. Tap Edit Profile.
Then, on the Birthday section, tap the edit button. Now, choose the new or correct age you want to set.
Once done, you won’t see your new age on Tinder yet. Your age on Tinder will still look like before.
To change your Tinder age, you have to delete your Tinder account and create a new one with the same Facebook account.
This might be really frustrating, but this is the only way.
Yes, deleting your Tinder account only to change your age will still delete your matches, messages, and other Tinder data. But, this isn’t really that bad if changing your age is worth it.
Then, how do you do it?
Well, simply open the Tinder app. Go to your profile. Tap Settings. Just instantly scroll down, then tap Delete Account.
Tap Delete Account to confirm. Then choose the reason why you want to delete the Tinder account.
Tap Submit Feedback and Delete. Tap Delete My Account to confirm.
Once you’ve done this, you can register a new Tinder account with the correct age with the same Facebook account.
Can You Change Age on Tinder with Phone Number?
This tutorial leaves you a question: can you really change age on Tinder registered with a phone number?
You see, Tinder allows you to register a new account with a phone number, and you can set your age almost the same way. Unfortunately, you can’t change age on Tinder account registered with phone number.
You can however, delete your Tinder account, and register with a new phone number.
How to Change Age Range of Profiles on Tinder
If you can’t change your age on Tinder, you can still change the age range of profiles you will see to swipe left and right.
This might be not the most effective way, but certainly increase your chances to get a match with people you really want, especially people with a certain age.
To do this, simply open the Tinder app. Go to your profile. Tap Settings.
Now, just move the slider to the age range you want. This will affect the age of Tinder users you will see on your feed.
Tinder is a great dating app. Tinder makes sure the users set the right age to make the best dating experience you might have. If you ever lied when setting your age on Tinder, you can still change that by doing the first method. You can do these methods on Android and iPhone.
