Find out what happens when you swipe right.

The first thing asked when joining Tinder is, "If you swipe right on Tinder do they know?" Thankfully after learning about the Tinder algorithm, we have determined that if you swipe right on Tinder they know only if they also swipe right. If you swipe right on Tinder, you are hopefully swiping your way to love!

The beauty of Tinder is that you will only know if they swipe right if you also swipe right. There are many factors that you might not be a match, but the other person will never know if you swiped right or left on them. Many people have a fear of swiping right on someone because they are unsure if the other person will find out. Luckily for you, we have determined the only way the other person will learn about which way you swiped.

Do you worry about if the other person is going to find out? Read about the possible outcomes of your swiping!

There are three things that can happen on Tinder if you swipe right on someone. We have determined what will happen based on these scenarios.

The Algorithm

Warner Bros.

Tinder's main attraction when it first came to the market was the ability to only find out if a person swiped right on you if you had also swiped right on them. The algorithm Tinder uses is set up so that there has to be a mutual connection for you to find out which way they decided to swipe. Many people still question whether or not the person you swipe right on will know. Here we have determined if they will find out which way you swiped, based on their actions.

If They Swiped Right


Congratulations! If you swiped right, and they swiped right, you will be a match! Message them and start a conversation. You never know who you could meet on Tinder! You matched for some reason, go explore that connection in hopes of it turning into whatever you want it to be!

If They Swiped Left


If the other person swiped left on you, they will not know if you swipe right on them. Your profile will disappear and you will not come up on their profile again for a while. This is one of Tinder's best features to most people. Allowing the person to make their decision without the stress of wondering what which way the other person swiped makes your job a lot easier! Swipe whichever way your heart desires, and they will only know you swiped right if they did, too!

If They Never Saw You


Did they ever see you? If they did not, they will not be aware of if you swiped right on them. The person might find your profile later on and will learn if you swipe right or left after they make their swiping decision. Make sure you are being active! They might not ever see you and you will never know!

In short, yes and no. They will only be able to see which way you swiped based on what they did! This allows you to swipe without worrying about if they will know you swiped right! Swiping right on someone just got a whole lot easier now that they do not automatically know what you did!
