Tinder has admitted that it gives users a hidden “desirability” score based on an algorithm determined by “a lot of factors”.

According to a report by Engadget, Tinder did not explain what the factors used in the algorithm are.

“The suggestion is that it’s partly a reflection of how closely you match traits that convince people to swipe right,” said Engadget.

Tinder said the desirability score is not a measure of “universal attractiveness”, as people find different traits appealing.

“And you might do better simply because of who picks you. Your chances may go up significantly if one of Tinder’s power users likes you,” stated the report.
