What is Sextortion on Tinder and How It Works

Tinder sextortion is when someone uses threatening or coercive language to try to get nude photos or videos from a Tinder match and then threatens to expose them online if they are not compensated.

There are typically two ways Tinder sextortion can go down. First, a sextortion scammer matches with someone and eagerly starts to flirt and talk sexually with their potential victim. The idea of sharing explicit content comes fairly quick, and being that Tinder is typically used to “hookup” victims aren’t thrown off by the idea. The minute photos or videos are sent out the extortion begins and the sextortionist will threaten to expose the victim’s content if they are not paid to keep quiet.

Another way sextortion occurs on Tinder is when the sextortionist will match with a potential victim and claim they formed real feelings. This way the sextortion will be drawn out for longer and hidden behind “innocent” favors. As an example, the sextortionist will come up with numerous excuses as to why they need money, some excuses could be that they are late on their phone bill, need money for food, etc. Being that the victim thinks they are in a relationship, they agree. Although things will take a turn once the victim can no longer send money. This is when the sextortionist shows their true colors and threatens to expose all of the victim’s intimate content online.

It's important to note shortly after a sextortionist has found a potential target, they will take a deep dive into their victim’s social media accounts and add the majority of their friends from their friend list and look up any public information available to use against them.

How to Protect Yourself from Tinder Sextortion

The best way to protect yourself from sextortion is to never send intimate photos or videos to someone you don't know and trust completely. Once those photos or videos are out there, you have no control over what happens to them. Even if the person says they will delete them after seeing them, there is no guarantee that they will do so. Additionally, if someone threatens to share your photos or videos unless you send more, report them immediately to the app (Tinder has a reporting feature built into it). You should also report any physical threats made by the person to the police as well as any other relevant authorities.


How To Report Tinder Sextortion?

We recommend making reports to the Tinder platform, your local authorities, and blackmail experts. Making reports to these three will provide you with the best safety measures.
