How Do I Look at a Profile Anonymously on Match.com?

by Faizah Imani ; Updated September 28, 2017

When actively using your Match.Com account, your profile status reads “Online Now.” If you view the profile of another person, your face will appear in the list of people who have viewed his profile. Visit the person's profile often and she may begin to think you are a stalker. If you know her exact user name, you can view her profile anonymously. Anonymous browsing is good when you want to check up on someone to see if he is “Online Now” searching for other profiles, while he is supposed to be exclusively be dating you.

Visit the Match website. Click the “Member Sign In” link located at the top of the page. Do not sign in.

Click the “Search” tab that is located at the top of the page. Select “Go Search.”

Locate the “Username Search” box that is located on the lower right side of the page. Type into the username search box the exact username of the person you want to look up.

Click “Go” to view the profile. You will be able to view the person's online status, personal information and what she is looking for in a mate. You won't be able to see all of his photos, only one. You will not be able to send winks, emails or chat while browsing anonymously.
