The famous dating app just announced some safety features for it’s users, it will start rolling out to US users on January 28th. There is no news for the users outside US.
The features are:
- When Tinder thinks some message could be offensive, it will ask user “Does this bother you?” which on given a yes as a response report the message as offensive to Tinder.
- Another feature is, if you are sending some text which Tinder again finds offensive, it will ask “Undo?” so that users can undo or take it back if they do not want to send it.
- There is also this feature which asks users to take selfies in order to self authenticate themselves, by comparing those selfies to the profile picture. (Using AI) & this also adds a blue tick (verified) to your profile.
- Oh & there is this whole section called “Safety Center” there are all safety related tools there & in case users want any help. Hopefully Tinder will keep updating it frequently.
- This is the last but the best new feature, the Noonlight Panic Button this offers online emergency response services. Being not only a panic button this also provides users option to share details like who, when, where they are meeting someone before actually meeting, adds to your timeline.
“Noonlight acts as a silent bodyguard in situations when you’re alone or meeting someone for the first time,” said Noonlight’s cofounder and CCO Brittany LeComte in the Tinder announcement.“Now, through our integration with Tinder, it can serve as a quick backup for daters, helping to deter bad behavior and helping members meet matches with more confidence. It’s a first-of-its-kind added security measure to help protect Tinder members even when they’ve taken their interactions off the app into real life.”
