If you have been using Tinder for a while, you may already know of the Tinder Passport feature. This is one of the best ways to surpass the geographical restrictions of Tinder and have access to matches that may not be in your area.

Passport is a feature in Tinder that allows you to search other locations for matches. You can simply search for new matches by city or by dropping a pin on a map.

It also makes it very east to move between your current location and other destinations. This feature is however only available to Tinder subscribers.

Using Tinder Passport to change the location, gives your profile a “new user” boost, meaning that you will get new more views almost instantly. It is also the easiest way to spoof your location on Tinder.

The bad news is, Tinder is not usually free, you will have to pay a subscription fee to access it. Since 2020, Tinder has unlocked this feature, allowing new users to get for free for a month. But if you would like to continue using it, you will still need to invest at least $9.99/month.

The premium subscription does come with additional features including unlimited right swipes, a free Tinder boost every month and extra Super Likes.

It is also possible for other users to tell if you are using Tinder Passport as the distance shown on your profile will be far away from their location.

You can choose to use the “don’t show my distance” option but when there is no distance shown on your profile, other users will assume that you’re far away.

How Many Cities can I Visit with Passport?

While you can only be in one city at a time, Tinder Passport allows you to change your location as many times as you like.

The people you’ve liked while using Tinder Passport can see your profile up to 24 hours after you have changed your location.

Can I Get the Passport Feature for Free?

Yes. Tinder made the feature free in April of 2020 for first time users. Through the month of April, any Tinder user could access the Passport feature free, without a subscription.

The result was more than 1.4 billion Tinder connections via Passport in the month of April alone, breaking Tinder’s highest-matches per day on the 24th with 55 million matches.

But since April of 2020, Tinder Passport has reverted back to a paid subscription, meaning that you have to purchase a Tinder subscription to have access to Passport.

There are however several other ways that you can change the location on your device and look for matches in the new area without having to physically travel there.

The best way to do it is to use GPS spoofing tools. The following are the best options for iOS and Android devices;

MockGo for iOS

The best way to change the GPS location on your iOS device is to use MockGo. With this tool, you can change the location on the device to anywhere in the world as many times as you want. The following are its main features;

  • It allows you to easily and very quickly teleport to any part of the world and find Tinder matches in that area.
  • The Joystick feature will allow you to move around in the new area more easily
  • GPS movement simulation at a custom speed, will trick other Tinder users into thinking you are an actual resident of that area
  • It is very easy to use and you don’t have to jailbreak your iOS device to spoof the location

MockGo provides the free trial version which allows you to change the Tinder location for free several times. Here’s how you can change the GPS location on your iOS device using MockGo;

GPS Emulator for Android

To change the GPS location on Android devices, the GPS Emulator app is a good choice. With this app, you can easily change the location to anywhere in the world and you don’t even have to root the device to do it.

Here’s how to use GPS Emulator to change the location on Android;

  • Step 1: Download the GPS Emulator app from the Google Play Store
  • Step 2: Open the app and you should see a map on the screen, indicating the current location of the device
  • Step 3: Select any major city that you would like to teleport your device to and then drag the pointer to refine the location to any area you want.

The main drawback of using this app is that your location may reset to the original location after a while.

This is because smartphones use more than one method to determine your location including GPS coordinates, mobile data and Wi-Fi connection data that can show the IP location of the device. You can prevent this by ensuring that the location is set to GPS-only.

Conclusion

Tinder Passport can be a good way to find matches that may not be available in your current area. But the only way to access this feature is to purchase a Tinder premium subscription.

If you don’t want to purchase a subscription just to find matches in distant locations, you can use spoofing tools like the ones outlined in this article to find matches in distant locations without actually moving there.
