How to run tinder and hide the app from your better half

Aren’t Relationships complicated?

We, humans, are complicated social creatures who crave love and affection. Relationships can be tricky because one moment you’re making meals for each other and next thing you know, you’re stuck in a heated argument with your partner.

In modern day and age where our lives have become so fast paced that we’d rather have online conversations than the real one on one conversations. When things get complicated in a relationship and people start exploring, the first thing they might end up doing is signing up on an online dating app. If you are one of them and want to hide your online dating adventures from your partner, follow the following tips-

Hide your dating app

There are many scenarios where your partner might ask to use your phone. If she finds an online dating app on your phone, it’s obvious that she won’t feel happy about it. To protect yourself from this case, just hide the app using any of the following methods-

1. Nova Launcher-

 Nova Launcher is one of the most popular launchers on Android. It is a perfect alternative for people who use a custom Android OS phone. But did you know that you can also hide apps in this launcher? All you need to do is make sure that it’s your default launcher. Purchase its pro version which costs only 1.99$.


Next step is to go to nova launcher settings and then to app and widget drawers. There you’ll find the option of hiding apps. In that option just add the app that you want to hide and voila your internet dating adventures are now hidden.


If you want to access this hidden app, you can unhide it using the same process as above or search for it in the app drawer.



It’s a nice trick and works most of the time because most people won’t search for apps in the app drawer and if they do, you’re busted!


       2. Privacy Hider-

What if I gave you an idea to disguise your dating app as a calculator? Seems crazy right? With Privacy Hider you can do just that and much more.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, all you need to do is swipe left, click on the first option, namely: Protection for privacy Hider. Then you’ll get three options to choose from. Choose the calculator option and enter your password. In this calculator lock screen layout “=” replaces enter.


Type in your unique password twice and put in a recovery email id. After that, your dating app is hidden inside the chambers of Privacy Hider and nobody can enter these chambers unless they have the right numerical key to open it.

The best part?

This masked calculator app works like a calculator too so you can get away with it easily.


3. Apex Launcher-

Just like Nova launcher, make sure that apex launcher is set as your default home launcher. Go into launcher settings and then go to drawer settings and tap on hidden apps. Just select your online dating app and that’s it. Just make sure that your dating app is not on your home screen. If it is present, remove it and you’ll be good to go.

You can only access this app by searching it in the app drawer or on google so, keep this in mind.


4. Parallel Space-

This app lets you hide apps in an incognito mode and lets you clone apps. It can also be one of the options to go for if you want to hide your online dating adventures from your partner.

Protect your Facebook


Most online dating apps get their data from Facebook. You can get caught if your online date posts on your facebook wall or messages you on facebook. So in order to protect yourself from this situation, all you need to do is mend some privacy settings on your facebook and you’ll be good to go. If you want to go an extra step to safeguard your online adventures, you can create a fake  Facebook profile and link that website to your online dating app.

Use a fake profile and bio

Don’t use accurate facts and figures when you’re trying to get out there on online dating platforms. A little bit of lying and a fake name might help you get away with your adventures. If your partner or any of their friends find out about your profile, you can blame the ease of the internet and how people fake their personalities to date people. See what I did there? 😉

Buy a separate phone for your adventures

Here’s the deal:

If you are determined to get back out there and take the world by a storm, buy a spare phone. You can call it your business phone ( I know it sounds cliche). You can install, chat and do whatever you feel like doing on this spare phone, just protect it with a really strong password and never let your partner near this adventurous phone.

That’s not all….

At the end of the day, the best way to use tinder is to use it for a bit and then deactivate it. Don’t get too greedy with trying to get everything that you desire. If someone on the app is willing to meet up and chat in person, do it and if it works out, deactivate your profile before your partner finds out about it.
