Tinder has become synonymous with online dating and at the moment is perhaps the most popular dating app as well. There have been a bunch of online dating apps that have come out since Tinder was released back in September 2012 but none have quite been able to catch up to Tinder on a global scale.

The app owes its success to unique features such as global swiping that make it possible to have total control over what you show to the public, how you communicate with people and even the locations where you swipe.

The Plus and Gold Tinder packages allow users to change their location and swipe anywhere in the world. So, if you’re also looking for a way to swipe somewhere far away, here’s how to change your location on Tinder.

PS. If you don’t want to spend money on Tinder Gold but still want to see global cards in your stack, scroll to the end of the article.
