Tinder, which is a popular dating app had announced on Monday that the new “ID Verification” feature will be available on tinder soon. People all over the world can use it. It has been noted that the ID Verification has already been existing on the Tinder app in Japan since 2019. This feature will now be available all over the world to all people across the globe.
The company had made a blog post where it has exclusively mentioned that ID Verification will be optional at first. This will be just like the account to like photo verification with selfies. The company did not seem that they will be making it a mandatory rule anytime soon.
To make sure that the people on tinder are actually getting the worth of their time the only thing that can be done is to make sure that they are given safety and priority in the app. This identification process can be a bit of a hassle to some of the users but will it ensure a better experience yes? After all who likes to be catfished? The answer is no one and this will help you make the choice of only interacting with verified users.
“Of course, the idea of identity verification is to make sure that the app more secure for its users. In dating apps, it is quite common to deal with fake profiles and get catfished. This happens often and is a horrible deal to face. The identification will be photo verification, Face-to-Face video chat, and even a “panic button,” said a person from Tinder. The fact that they are going this far to ensure the safety of the users is commendable.
