Modern online dating has become so casual that it can be easy to forget some of the basic rules of talking with strangers online, and dating apps are certainly not lacking dangers.
In the midst of all of the flirting and dating, there are plenty of users on these dating sites that are only there to exploit some dater’s innocence. And it can be overwhelming to join some of these sites only to find yourself matching with suspicious individuals and potential scammers.
If you don’t want to have to put up with fake accounts and shady swipers, you’re going to need a profile that only attracts the best and leaves the imposters without a chance.

And when you want to actually catch a fake profile and not just suspect it, you’ll need these useful tips.
Reverse image search
We all know that too few, or too perfect, profile photos can point to a fake profile, but when you want to know for sure, you’ll need to perform a reverse image search.
This technique is a great way to trace an image back to its source and the result can help you determine if the dating profile it belonged to was actually the rightful owner.
To perform a reverse image search on a huge search engine like Google, first go to Google images. Once there, you may or may not see a camera icon in the search bar. If it’s not there, switch over to desktop view rather than mobile. Click on the camera icon to add the photo you want to search.
Your search will bring up anything that is connected or relates to that image, which should be a great start to spotting a fake profile!
Confirm bio details
If you spot some weird wording or broken English in a profile, you can try to confirm or disprove your suspicions by looking into any details they shared in their bio.
When it comes to a slightly fishy bio, it can be hard to decide if it’s legitimate or a well-disguised scam. When you want to find out for sure, searching online to confirm some of their details can help you feel safe talking with them or reassure you that your reservations were valid.
If your match’s bio includes information that can be verified, you can easily search those things to see if relevant information pops up. Though, more likely, the profile doesn’t list anything too personal and you can simply search some parts of their bio to see if it brings up any other profiles with the same story.
It can be a fruitless tactic, but sometimes you find multiple profiles with the exact same bio story all under different names.
And if you don’t want to have to take to Google whenever you get a weird or slightly off match…

A suspicious profile might try to seem less so by linking their social accounts, but if you want to know for sure, you’ll need to dig deeper.
When you get a new match and their profile is too good to be true or, rather, a little off, you can check out any social accounts that they linked and look for clues of a real person. It’s not always available, but when it is, this technique can help you discover a fake profile.
To spot fake socials, you want to look at things like the profile photos, usernames, and bios. The profile photo might still sport the default avatar, be of someone famous, or be bad quality like it was taken from the internet. Usernames might be random letters and numbers and bios might be sparse or completely empty.
While any of these things on their own don’t necessarily mean you have found a fake profile, all together they can point to something suspicious. And if your new match has genuine social proof to back up their identity or claims, then you can feel better getting to know more about them.
Prevent the fakes
If you don’t want to have to play detective to find out if a profile is for real, then you need to start attracting the kinds of matches you’ll never have to doubt.
Staying safe while online dating is priority, so knowing these tips is certainly important. But, when you are looking to do more than just stay safe, you’re looking for a relationship or a new friend, you will need more tactics than these general sleuthing tools.
