What is Tinder Gold?

Tinder has been around for a while now, and what started as a simple dating app has turned into the most popular of them all. Though, not everyone understands how Tinder works.

Though the basic plan you use with Tinder is free, meaning that it’s free to download, there are several premium features that can only be unlocked when upgrading to a paid account.

There are also several different subscription tiers you can choose too – one of these is Tinder Gold.

What is Tinder Gold?

Tinder Gold is incorporated into the app as a paid subscription that gives users more features than the free tier.

When you sign up to Tinder Gold, you get access to many of the apps premium features.

This includes the ability to like as many people as you want with the addition of unlimited likes, so you’re not capped at a certain amount of likes per day.

If unlimited swiping wasn’t enough, you also get access to the unlimited rewind feature too, and Tinder Passport, which allows you to change your location from within the app.

Plus, you’ll get an additional 5 Super likes each week to use, and a monthly boost that will give you increased exposure on the platform (and typically more matches from this).

Tinder Gold vs Tinder Platinum

Tinder Gold is actually not the highest level of plan that Tinder offers. Instead, there’s the Tinder Platinum level, which unlocks everything that Tinder has in terms of features.

Along with everything that you get in Tinder Gold, you also get additional benefits. This includes being able to see all of the likes that you sent out of the past week.

You also get the ability to message users on the platform without liking them. Plus, you’ll get boosted to the top of your matches messaging lists, which is another way to get more attention from the platform.

Is Tinder Gold worth it?

Though it’s entirely subjective whether Tinder Gold is worth your your or not, it’s probably the most cost effective of the three Tinder subscription plans that are offered.

You get access to the main features that users want from a paid plan that you don’t get with the free version of Tinder – Tinder Passport is probably the most coveted of these extra features.

And obviously, the ability to like as many people as you want within the app can be hugely beneficial when you’re looking to get as many matches as you can on Tinder.


In conclusion, Tinder has been around for 10 years now, and in that time they’ve introduced a lot of new features to the app.

To accommodate for this, different pricing tiers were introduced, with one of the most popular being Tinder Gold.

If you plan to use Tinder on a daily basis, it may be worth signing up to this package – but if you’re not sure, you can always stick with a free plan and see how that goes.
