Tinder Incognito Mode Explained [How To Hide Your Profile!]

Want more control over who sees your Tinder profile? That’s exactly what Tinder incognito Mode gives you. 

Keep reading for all the details you’re looking for, like how it works and what it costs!

Let’s dive in with…

How Tinder Incognito Mode Works

When Tinder Incognito Mode is activated, your profile is hidden - but you can still swipe right or left on other users. Whenever you swipe right on someone you’re interested in, your profile will then appear in their card stack. 

In other words, only the people you Like see your profile.

Control My Visibility on Tinder app

Tinder Plus subscribers have been able to control who sees them for a long time now, but Tinder is highlighting it as a safety feature and gave it a new name. The changes were announced on February 7th 2023, which coincided with Safer Internet Day.

To activate Incognito Mode in Tinder:

  1. Tap the profile icon in the nav bar.
  2. Access the Settings menu by tapping the gear icon.
  3. Scroll down to the Control My Visibility menu options
  4. Tap Incognito

To deactivate Incognito Mode in Tinder, follow the same steps - tapping Incognito Mode again will disable it.

Incognito Mode Price

The Incognito feature comes bundled with Tinder Plus, so it costs around $7.99 for a single month. Investing in a multi-month membership brings the per-month price down:

Incognito Mode/Tinder Plus Subscription Cost*
$7.99 - 1 month
$4.00/month - 6 months
$2.67/month - 12 months
*Cost may vary slightly by location

That’s significantly less than it costs to hide your profile on Bumble. Bumble’s Incognito Mode is a feature for Bumble Premium users, which costs $44.99 for a single month.

Incognito Mode VS Hiding Your Tinder Profile

Even free users can hide their Tinder profiles just by toggling off “Show me on Tinder” in the Settings menu. No one new will see your profile while it’s hidden, but there's a catch:

You can’t swipe on anyone when your profile is hidden.

Tinder’s Incognito Mode also hides your profile, but then selectively reveals it to whomever you Like as you swipe.

Is Tinder Incognito Worth Paying For?

That depends on a few factors, like whether or not you want to pay for Tinder and how well it’s working for you as a free user. If you’re struggling to match with compatible singles, or getting no Tinder matches at all, hiding your profile from the masses isn’t going to help you get better results.

But if you’re privacy conscious and want to spend a few dollars a month for private swiping, Tinder Plus is worth the membership price. A Plus subscription also lets you limit some of the information displayed on your profile, like your age and distance. 

There are a few other handy perks too, like Passport, which lets you swipe in any city you want. No daily limitations on right swipes, unlimited rewinds if you swiped the wrong way and ad free scrolling round out the feature list.

Whether you ultimately decide to upgrade Tinder or you keep using it for free, an optimized profile will help you attract compatible matches. Check out our Ultimate Guide To Tinder for all kinds of profile, photo and message advice!
