Though Tinder Gold has many benefits like unlimited likes and the ability to match with people all over the world, it’s still hard to justify spending $30 a month on it.
Thankfully, if all you really want from the premium subscription is the ability to see who’s already liked you, TikTok user sexysquash has discovered a genius workaround.
In a now-viral video of the “genius” hack, sexysquash demonstrates how you can see the blurred photos of the people who have already liked you.
Once you’re logged in to your account on the desktop app, head to the Gold membership section of your account. Here, you’ll find all of the accounts that have swiped right on you — though without a membership, their photos will be blurred.
To remove the blur from an image, right-click on it and click “inspect.” When you do this, a box of code should appear on your screen. Ignore this coding, and click “inspect” again.
Another box of code should appear, this time with the word “blur” in it. Remove the word “blur” from the code, press enter and according to sexysquash, you should be able to see any image you want.
In the comments, some people revealed that they tried the Tinder hack with success.
“It worked for me but there’s still a layer of bluriness,” one person said.
“HOLY S*** WAIT IT WORKED,” another user commented.
However, other users claim that since the video was uploaded, Tinder has updated their coding to prevent this hack from working.
“It doesn’t say blur anywhere,” one person said.
“This doesn’t work anymore. They patched [it],” another user noted.
If you’re curious whether this trick actually works, there’s only one way to find out: Give it a go! Worse comes to worst, the hack doesn’t work, and you continue swiping like normal.
