Not only ride giants like Uber or Ola are adding safety features to apps but Tinder, the dating app also adds new safety features including a panic button too. Match Group, the parent of Tinder announced the features in an official blog post.
The app got emergency assistance, photo verification, and location tracking. The photo verification will help out to tackle catfishing so that no one can dump any person into a relationship based on false information or picture.
The verified photos are then assessed by real-time selfies with human assistance algo. After successful completion of steps, the users will receive a blue-tick showing their credibility. All these features are available in the safety center of the app.
