How to Change Age on Tinder? (2020)

Tinder is one of the most used applications in the world that has been popular for a long time. In this application, users can match and meet people according to the age, gender and location category they set. Users can meet many people who are compatible with their age groups and interests. Yet, some information entered incorrectly during registration may cause problems later. The most common of these incorrectly entered information is the age information. In this case, you do not need to open a new account because you can edit your age settings without opening a new account. We will explain to you in detail how to change age on Tinder.

How to Change Your Age on Tinder?

You can sign up to Tinder via email and Facebook. If you subscribe Tinder with your Facebook account, your age in your Tinder profile will automatically change and update within 24 hours after you change your age on Facebook. Here is how to do it:

  1. Open your Facebook account on your device because Tinder takes your date of birth information from Facebook if you have registered with your Facebook account.
  2. Click the About button under your Facebook cover photo.
  3. On the opening menu, find the Edit Basic Information part and tap it. That will open a different page, and you can change your birth date from there.
  4. Update your date of birth from the drop-down menu.
  5. Please keep in mind that Facebook will not allow you to update your date of birth if you have recently changed it. So, you may have to try it later.
  6. If you have not changed your date of birth recently, then your age will be changed, and within 24 hours, your Tinder age will be changed too.
