Tinder nightmare - help urgent

So interesting situation - staying with stbxh in another country (where he lives now) we're all friends for the sake of our daughter etc, it's all good.
But.... I've been using tinder to meet new people and I realised I ought to turn it off while here so the whole gossipy community doesn't know ex's ex (me) is prowling back home. So I try to open it to switch that part off, but due to crap internet connection it has logged me out, and when I try to log back through Facebook it only lets me log in as ex. It creates him a little profile, which I then have to delete in a panic.
I may have logged into his fb in the past while the bewildering breakup was happening, and he's always been a bit crap online so I often have to admin his accounts for him anyway. I have now however deleted all that, have only one fb account on my phone and have also deleted both apps and re-installed several times.
How can I tell tinder I want to log in as me? I really want to switch it off now confusedblush

When you do meet someone are you going to bring them back to where you live with stbxh?

You need to log out of Facebook on your device and sign in as yourself. That said I understand Facebook but have never used tinder.

Panic over - I've logged in with phone number then went back to fb and it found my profile, which I've now disabled.

FYI, i don't live with stbxh, we are separated and free to see others. I've brought my daughter out to see him and we are friends. I just don't want every single guy in town who uses tinder to see me there in the lineup as it's a culture which has very questionable views on women and where sexual harassment is a way of life
