Download Tinder profile photos

Ever wondered if you can download Tinder profile photos of the members you just visited?

Fortunately this is actual possible, using a small hack, so swiping left will no longer be a problem.

The case:
– Android phone
– Tinder 4.0 for Android

Done lots of profile views, some likes, super-likes, etc
Now is the time to see how can the user profile pics be downloaded.

You will need to have root on your phone.
– Install Super SU (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.supersu&hl=en). Warning this will void your phone’s warranty.

A SSH server for you mobile phone:
– SSHDroid (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=berserker.android.apps.sshdroid&hl=en)

Make sure that the phone and your laptop/PC are connected to the same WLAN SSID and have IPs in the same subclass, for example 192.168.1.x
Start SSHDroid and make sure that is connected to a wifi connection and has a valid IP. See the screenshot below!

Download Winscp (https://winscp.net/eng/download.php)

– create a SCP session and enter the phone’s IP from the step above. The username should be root and the password admin

Once the SCP session is open, go to the /data/data/com.tinder/cache/picasso-cache folder and download all the files with the “.1” extension in that folder.  Hint: WinScp can sort by file extension or file size.
Go to the local folder on your PC (where you downloaded the files).
Hit the Windows+R keyboard combination, write cmd, hit OK.
Issue the following commands:
cd C:\Users\your_username\Documents\tinder // assuming that this is where you downloaded the files

and rename all files with the following command:
ren * *.jpg

If this doesn’t work, go to http://www.howtogeek.com/111859/how-to-batch-rename-files-in-windows-4-ways-to-rename-multiple-files/ and check out those tutorials.

In Linux you can rename those Tinder profile photos using:

mv * *.jpg

The result ? Lots of jpg files.

That’s it. Go to that folder and you should see all Tinder profile pics of the users who’s profile you visited.

Cheers!
