Luckily for you, there are a few ways around this that I will cover below.
Every once in a while it would be nice to use Tinder without Facebook linked to your account and that is what I will walk you through in the guide below.
Keep in mind that the app constantly changes and updates their rules so there may be new tips and tricks coming out in 2015 or 2016 to get around a linked account. The trick below works both on i Phone and on Android so you don’t need to worry whatever device you’re on.
First, let’s get into a little bit of background information and get an idea for why Tinder decided to force you to link your account.
This will lead us into a related question: Can you have the app delink the two services, or will you always be forced to have the two paired? As I stated above, Facebook has become so prevalent in our daily digital lives that it pops up practically everywhere whether you want it to or not.
In a very clever way, Tinder has piggybacked on Facebook’s popularity for a number of reasons that I will cover below.
I would argue that it has helped the app’s fast growth and adoption among young generations.
Below are reasons Tinder requires you to link your Facebook account.
For these reasons it is a good idea to prohibit people from using Tinder without Facebook as you can’t use some of the key features of the app if you don’t link it to another account.
Facebook has become prevalent in just about any and every website, app, social media platform, etc.
You can hardly go to any website without having like buttons.
Which makes sense, after all, because every website wants to generate traffic (please take this time to like Appamatix), but a lot of websites, social media networks, and other services require Facebook in order for you to log in.
