Pin-flirt keeps things nice and simple. 3 steps and you are signed up for an account:
- Pick a fun username
- Create your profile
Then you’re all set to start searching through profiles. Of course, the more complete your profile, the easier people will be able to find you. Plus, you’ll get free coins for filling out your profile page (more on that below).
Matchmaking & Search Functions
Pin-flirt doesn’t have the sophisticated algorithms of sites like Match.com or EliteSingles. Instead, it’s more about having fun and giving online dating a chance. If you’re looking for a serious relationship, this might not be the best method, but if you are just looking to have some fun, want to find a friend, or are the type who likes to be spontaneous, then Pin-flirt is definitely a good option.
Pin-flirt has 3 levels of search functionality:
1. Basic search
This basic search allows you to search member profiles based on username, age, or location. This is a good starting point if you’re new to the online dating scene.
2. Advanced search
If you want to get more detailed search results, opt for the advanced search option. This allows you to filter out users based on online status, profiles with photos, and new versus old users. This is good if you want to be a little more selective but don’t need too much control.
Finally, if you really want to get personalized search results, use the interests filter to find other members who share your passions. Interests help you find the members who are most fitting for you quickly and easily.
Click on the Browse button to start swiping through different members. You can use the available filters to narrow down your selections.
Oh, and one more thing. The website is also mobile-friendly. So, you can use the same profile on desktop or mobile, and all of the functionality, features, and preferences work the same regardless of which device you’re using.
Features & Communication Tools
Pin-flirt doesn't have a ton in the way of advanced features. It has the basics, like chatting and browsing. You can also see which users viewed your profile or pin other members' profiles and check on them later.
Pin-flirt does have a neat feature that we liked. It's called Speed Date, and it's a Tinder-style dating method where the system generates profiles for you to browse. You can quickly like or skip as you desire. If both of you click "like," then you'll get a notification that will allow you to start chatting.
There are also some other ways to communicate with members on Pin-flirt. You can pin another user, which is basically like saying, I like you! Alternatively, you can send someone a message or a photo to say hello. Bear in mind, though, that you'll need coins to send messages and pictures to other users.
When you update your profile periodically, you’ll earn coins that you can use to make in-app purchases like photo sharing or messages. You’ll get points for verifying your email address, filling out the “About Me” section, uploading photos, and selecting your interests.
Safety & Security
Pin-flirt does it’s best to keep members safe and secure. To begin with, you register using a fictitious username. This is to maintain your privacy and anonymity. What’s more, Pin-flirt advises users not to reveal any personal, identifying information too soon in the game. Get to know the other members you’re chatting with well before handing out your digits, real name, and certainly your address.
Pin-flirt uses email verification to weed out the phonies. You can also limit your photo visibility so that only selected members can see your pictures. Additionally, Pin-flirt uses reasonable security measures to keep data safe, including encryption technology and limited access.
Signing up, making a profile, and receiving messages are totally free, but if you want to interact with other members, you're going to have to get coins.
Now, that's not entirely out of pocket. Pin-flirt actually sends members coins periodically, like when you update your profile. Sending a single message costs 40 coins though, so promotional coins are likely to run out fast.
It's worth noting that coins expire after 90 days from your last log-off date. So, if you don't intend to use your Pin-flirt account for a while (going on vacation, have a tight work deadline, or a busy schedule around the holidays, for example), be sure to use up your coins before you go. Send out a bunch of messages at once, and see who responds.

Pin-flirt has a great FAQ section. If the information you’re looking for doesn’t appear in the help section, you can send a message to the support team via the online contact form.
