If you’re suspicious that your significant other may be using dating sites behind your back, then this guide is for you. We’ll go over the best ways you can find out if someone has an account on any dating apps, and if they’ve been actively using their accounts recently.
How to find out if someone is on dating sites
If you don’t already have some way to check who has a profile, then you should start off with a simple Google search. We’d recommend searching their name along with names of common dating apps, which will only return the users’ basic profile, and therefore won’t show any of their other information.
Unfortunately, a number of sites have user privacy policies that prevent you from accessing the profiles of people who have set their accounts to private. You might be able to find a handful of this, but not more. If the user you’re looking for is an adult male, then you might be able to find him on something like OKCupid, where he can’t be made private.
If you search for someone on Tinder, then you won’t have access to his profile unless you’ve matched, and therefore won’t know if he is on Tinder or other dating apps. Some hookup sites like Sex Sites don’t have public profiles you can find with a Google search. You’ll have to sign up for the site yourself and create a profile to search for them.
How to find out if they’re active on their dating sites
Though you can never be 100% sure, it’s important to look for something. Something that’s either obvious, or something that you can try to spot by asking a few questions. A lot of times, dating apps and sites will tell you the last time a person logged into their account.
And if you’re super paranoid, you can use a different identifier for their last log-in. But for the most part, there are a few things you can try to find out about someone’s account.
- How do they log into their accounts?
- Are you friend’s with their friend?
- Have they ever been hacked?
- Are they the type to freak out if you try looking at their phone?
This should give you an indication if they’re active or not. And while it’s a small bit of information, it should be enough to help you get a sense of who they are and what they’re up to.
