Would Other Users Come to know if you are using Passport?
Yes, there is a possibility that other users can get an idea that you are using Passport as by looking at the distance. For example, you are in New Delhi, but you use Tinder Passport and change your location to Mumbai. Now, when a user from Mumbai finds you there, but see that the distance is too much (Delhi to Mumbai distance) then that user can get an idea that you are using Passport. However, Tinder offers you an option “Don’t show my distance” but then again users can get the idea that you are using a passport and that is why you are hiding the distance.
Whatever it be, Passport is still a good feature to use.
Remember that, at a time, you can be in one city virtually. That means if you have changed the location to Mumbai, your profile can be seen only within Mumbai for that time period. As soon as you change the location to another city, your profile will start showing in that city only.
One best thing about using Passport is, as you change the city, your profile gets boosted by Tinder in that city. That means your profile will be swiped more initially.
When Tinder Passport is More Beneficial for You?
If you a travel a lot to different cities, then you can use passport while staying in your cities to make more buddies in different cities so that when you visit those cities, you can have a chance to schedule meeting with them. You don’t have to find someone at that time because you have already friends that you have made earlier using passport so just meet them as soon as you reach the city. So, if you travel a lot, Passport is indeed the best feature you can use.
