  2. Go to your profile and tap the purple lightning bolt icon that is usually near the heart.
  3. Confirm your selection and you are done! Your Boost will be activated and your profile will be highlighted for the following 30 minutes.

When is the best time to use a Tinder Boost?

Let's say it without beating around the bush, the best time to use a Tinder Boost is when you really want to maximize your chances of getting a match, unless you want to waste them.

A smart strategy is to activate it on a day of the week during lunchtime or when you are about to leave work, since usually, after getting home and doing some chores, many people relax between 19:00 and 20:00. And, of course, Thursday evenings for college-age users.

Weekends are prime time since people are relaxed and have more free time to browse profiles. Avoid activating it late at night, unless you're in a city with a vibrant night scene and many late-night users.

Tips and recommendations for using Tinder Boosts

On Tinder, it is not only about when to use a Boost but also about how to get the most out of it. Here are some tips to optimize your experience:

Improve your profile

Before activating a Boost, make sure your profile is in its best shape. That means having photos that show you well and without exaggerated filters. Avoid blurry photos or those where you are with friends, as possible matches won't be able to distinguish who you are.

Also, write a biography that highlights your personality. You do not need to write a novel, but at least something to make people interested in getting to know you. And, of course, do not forget to answer the questions, they offer a great way to show who you really are.

Choose the right time

The best times to use a Boost are during peak times of activity on Tinder, such as weekday afternoons or evenings, or Sunday afternoons. You can also use a Boost during special events or local festivities.

Whether it's a concert or a festival, positive energy and a desire to socialize are in the air, making it the perfect time to use this feature to boost your love (or social) life.

Be active during Boost

Once you have activated a Boost, you must be available to interact with people who match with you. Respond to messages quickly and in a friendly manner, and show interest in what they say.
