Tinder has decided to escape the controversy that has been haunting him for a long time: dating people who are not who they say they are, the so-called catfishing .
According to the BBC, the most popular dating application in the world, has made the decision to create a 'panic button' and other security tools, such as emergency assistance , location tracking and photo verification, so that Users can escape a dangerous date.
The new features will arrive in the US from January 28 and it is expected that some time later they will be installed globally, although Tinder has not confirmed when it will be.
Match Group , the parent company of Tinder, said it has opted for Noonlight , an application that provides emergency services and personal safety products, which will be the ones that Tinder will use.
The operation is very simple: before the user is with someone can store all the information about that person with whom you have the appointment and record the place where it will take place. If for any reason during the appointment there is a risk, the panic button can be activated and the emergency services will be notified with all the details and the location where they were.
On the other hand, Tinder's new feature to verify photos will allow users to detect who has fake profiles or is using someone else's identity. Tinder will verify that the published profile photos are authentic and will ask users to verify their identity by taking several selfies.
"We have found innovative technology at Noonlight that can provide real-time emergency services that do not exist in any other dating product," the director of Match Group told the BBC.
