There’s a Tinder hack going around that allows you to unblur Tinder images and see people that have swiped right on you without paying for Tinder Gold. If you’ve read my guide on increasing your matches on Tinder, you’re probably overwhelmed by the sheer number of people waiting to be swiped right on by you that have found your Tinder profile appealing. Err…maybe not overwhelmed, but regardless, you’ll often find yourself with a variety of people that have matched on you and unless you have Tinder Gold, their faces will be blurred out.
When you log in to Tinder on the desktop site (the only way these Tinder Hacks work), you’ll be presented with an area in the lefthand sidebar with a highly blurred out image and the number of people that have swiped right on you. Normally, in order to see what the people that liked you look like, Tinder would prompt you to spend money to buy Tinder Gold. This would unlock the ability to see those people and decide if you want to swipe right on them without using this hack.
In this Tinder hack tutorial, I’ll start by showing you the way all the other tutorials tell you how to unblur those images on Tinder before showing you how to unblur Tinder images in bulk with the easiest method � a single command:
Keep in mind, even though this Tinder hack will allow you to see those images unblurred, you’ll still need to actually purchase Tinder Gold in order to immediately swipe right on those people. It might try the website just be worthwhile to purchase if someone catches your eye. If you want to see the rest of that person’s photos, you’ll find a link at the end of the article to another Tinder hack that can do just that.
It’s also important to note that Tinder has altered its webpage to only show 10 blurred matches, likely because of the ease of using this hack. Fortunately, they show the most recent right swipes on you, if you keep an eye on new matches, you can bulk unblur them every time you get 10 matches.
The Hard Way (Like All The Others Tell You)
Most of the Tinder hacks on the web showing you how to unblur the image of one of your matches requires you to right-click on one of the blurred images in Google Chrome and click �Inspect�.
Doing so will bring up a console that allows you to see the code behind the creation of the webpage.
As you scroll across items in the webpage Elements Inspection contents, you’ll see it highlight various parts of the webpage. We want to find the highlighted area, noted in the image above, that references the actual picture we want to remove the blur from.
Change the Blur(12px) to Blur(0px) and suddenly the image isn’t nearly as blurry anymore! Tinder uses some sort of super compressed thumbnail image of the original, so it isn’t perfect quality, but it is good enough to see what the person look like and see if upgrading to Tinder Gold might be worth it to swipe on them and invite them on a date (preferably not to the movies)! If you want the full quality image, stick around for the link to another Tinder hack at the end of this article.
Alternative Method (But Still Not the Easiest)
Additionally, instead of unblurring the image, you can also just copy and paste the thumbnail URL into your browser window.
Copying the image URL will open up an un-pixelized version on a new page. Unfortunately, the image size is 84?106 and zooming doesn’t provide much of a clearer image since the original is so small. If you want to see how to view the clear original image, you’ll have to use this alternative Tinder hack.
Pro Tip: Instead of copying and pasting the URL, you can actually just visit the �Source� tab after right-clicking on the webpage and clicking �Inspect�. You’ll find a folder labeled, preview.gotinder where you can find the images directly.
The downside to these methods, of course, is that since you’re an awesome bro that reads our blog, you have hundreds of matches! You don’t possibly have time to see what type of people are matching on you one at a time.
The Easy Hack To Unblur Tinder Matches In Bulk Without Buying Gold
Much like the prior step, you’re going to right-click somewhere on the web page using Google Chrome and click �Inspect� to bring up the Element Inspection box. This time, look at the top of the box to find the �Console� tab and click it.
How does this command work? We know that each image Tinder blurs uses blur pixelization of 12px. So each time you see a Tinder match blurred out in the Elements Inspection box, you’ll note it does so with the code: a�s Blur(12px). This command simply goes through the code on the page and looks for each reference of �12px� and changes it to �0px�.
…simply hit enter and the entire page will update with all of the Tinder images no longer being as blurred. This basically does the hard method explained above in one simple step. So now, instead of going through and unblurring Tinder images one by one, this method unblurs all your matches in one quick command.
Again, because Tinder uses a compressed version of a small thumbnail and then upsizes it before blurring, we have to use a separate Tinder hack to get a fully un-pixelized version of people you haven’t matched with yet on Tinder; however, the image should be clear enough to determine if they are a decent match to investigate further. If they are, maybe you’d be interested in upgrading to Tinder Gold and seeing where they’re from.
Here’s an example of a handful of my Tinder matches once they’re unblurred. Note: I further blurred the little girl’s face, otherwise the rest of the images are a good example of what the unblurred Tinder images will look like.
