Can Someone See If You Read Their Tinder Message?

Messages are the most intimate feature in the hook up/dating app Tinder. Are there read receipts? Can someone see if you read their Tinder message? No, they cannot. The messaging feature of the Tinder app does not yet have a function that tells the sender if you have read their message. Nobody can see if you have read their Tinder message.

Tinder Messages Do Not Have Read Receipts

So what happens when someone sends you a Tinder message but you want to wait to respond? Do you have to wait to open the Tinder message? Will they see if you have read it? More importantly, what if you want to ignore a Tinder message completely? Will they see that you are not interested enough to even answer?

The answer is no. They will never know if you have read their message. Although many apps like Facebook messenger and messages on iPhone can show the sender if you have read their message, Tinder does not.

In order to protect privacy and the integrity of Tinder users, the messaging feature doesn't show if you have read a message. So, don't worry, you can give anyone the cold shoulder without remorse. Ignore away!
