Does Tinder notify when you screenshot a conversation?

What made you ask this question?

We all know there are various apps out there who do notify if someone takes a screenshot of the conversation.

The most famous app that has this feature is Snapchat.

Unlike Snapchat, which is designed to delete the conversation after each of the participants open and leave the chat, conversations on Tinder can still be seen until one of the participants decides to delete the entire conversation by unmatching the other participant from their matching list.

Since Snapchat is using the method of deleting the messages automatically without giving the users a chance to show that conversation to a friend or someone else, Snapchat users are using the screenshot method to show the conversation to someone.

But unfortunately the Snapchat app notifies when someone takes a screenshot of a conversation.

But this is not the case with Tinder.

You are free to take a screenshot of a conversation on Tinder.

The app will not notify if someone takes a screenshot of a conversation.

So, feel free to share that perfect opening line that you got!
