Our Review

Online dating in general, has changed the course of how people find their partners in life, even in the Muslim culture. The rise of fast-paced dating apps has inspired Haroon Mokhtarzada to create Minder, a dating app that primarily caters to the needs of the western Muslim community.

Minder is dedicated to helping Muslims in their quest to find love. It was first launched on February 14, 2015, with about 2,000 people requesting to register. Now it has over 350,000 active members and has created more than 100,000 matches in different countries.

It is generally targeted towards marriage-minded Muslims who are willing and able to settle down. Though it may not be traditional, it has still managed to grasp the idea of true matchmaking, with a modern touch.

Minder is one of those apps that has a high regard for security. The sign-up process itself will give you an idea of how much the site values profile authenticity. When you first launch the app, you will be presented with a choice to sign up through your Facebook account or your phone number. These two sign-up options serve as a way to validate your profile and confirm if you're a legit member candidate.

Upon signing up, you will be asked to assess yourself by your religiosity, education, flavour, etc.

Basically, you are already filling out some parts of your profile during the registration process. When you're done writing your basic info, you will be led to a page where you upload the photos for your profile. The last step you have to do before you can proceed and start finding matches is to send a selfie verification. You will then have to wait until you get verified.

Making Contact on Minder

Minder Telegram
  • The chat function is simple and easy to use
  • Sending messages is free
  • You have 100 free swipes every 12 hours
  • Your match recommendation is based on your location
  • There is no search option

If it's a match, then don't hesitate to leave a message. Contacting members in Minder is free but only if you match with them. If you really want to leave a message for someone you like but don't like you back, you can send them a "Telegram". This feature allows you to connect with members who don't match with you. 

It is not like the other app features that once unlocked, you can use them for as much as you want.

Telegrams can only be used for a limited number of times. It is sold in packs of 3s or 10s, so make sure to use them wisely. If you don't, you will have to buy another pack again.

Minder Profile Quality

Minder Profile
  • Profiles can be easily updated
  • Limited photo slots
  • Has Muslim type options (Sunni, Shia, Just Muslim, other)
  • Profiles are pretty detailed
  • App uses your first name only

    Minder's profile section is very concise and straight to the point. It contains some of your basic information, including your family origin, educational attainment, and occupation. The site also added a few important things like your marital status, "Religiosity", and "Flavour". To measure religiosity, you are to adjust a gage according to how religious you are. Its range is from not practising to very religious. 

    You might be wondering what "Flavour" pertains to. It is a term that Minder uses to describe what type of Muslim you are. In the options, you will see two of Islam's biggest branches, Sunni and Sia. It also has a "Just Muslim " option for the ones who are not that specific with their denomination. If you feel like you don't quite match well with the flavour options available, you can always choose "Others."

    Your profile information can be changed or updated anytime. The information you provide in your profile will be made public. Anyone can have access to profiles for free.

    Usually, a premium upgrade will give you complete access to an app's features. But in Minder, a premium subscription will only give you access to some of the site features like unlimited daily swipes, premium placement for your profile, see a list of people who like you, undo swipes, etc. 

    Minder offers a specific premium feature that does not belong in the Premium upgrade, called "Telegram". Telegrams give you the ability to send a message to people you haven't matched with. It is represented by a red email icon beside the name of each person in the "I liked" or "I passed" section.

    This feature is sold separately and can be bought per piece or packs. The number of telegrams you buy determines the number of times you can use the feature. Since it is not part of the premium plan, even standard members can purchase it without having to upgrade their accounts.

    Special Features

    Minder is a pretty basic app, with features that are very similar to most of the existing dating apps in the market. But it does have a couple of cool features you never know you needed. 


    Have you ever skipped on someone accidentally while swiping? Yes? Well, don't worry, Minder's telegram feature will let you send a message to anyone you haven't matched. It is a paid feature you can use for a limited number of times depending on the pack you have purchased. 


    Minder's explore option is pretty different from others. In this section, you will be able to see a list of people who liked you (paid feature), a list of people you passed on, and a list of people you liked.
