What is a Tinder Secret Admirer? Meaning behind push notification explained

If you’re stuck inside swiping left and right on Tinder you aren’t alone. During the coronavirus lockdown many singletons tried out their luck on the dating app.

While the premise of the app is quite simple, one notification has got people mind-boggled.

The notification says: “Your secret admirer is not so secret anymore… (eyes emoji)”

If you’ve received the notification and you’re wondering what that means you’re not alone.

When you press the notification you have the ability to choose one of four profiles to take a look at.

These are four people who have swiped right on you, and you can reveal one of them.

For those who have Gold membership, they will already have the ability to see people who swiped right on them.

Speaking of which, we’ve previously reported on how to find out who liked you without paying for Gold membership.

But technically, unless you have Gold membership, you won’t be able to see people who swiped right on you.

So this is an opportunity for a cheeky free reveal of someone who likes you.

Then you can choose to like, superlike, or swipe left on them.

This isn’t the first time Tinder has used push notifications.

On January 3, 2016, Tinder had its biggest growth day to date, recording the most downloads in a single day.

It also had its most active users in a single day.

Tinder sent out a push notification saying: “Wow! Tinder is on fire in your area! Chances of a match are 3X higher right now (flame emoji)”

Tinder CEO Sean Rad explained to Tech Crunch: “When there is a spike in engagement on the platform, we want to let users know so that they can take advantage of that moment.”
