Tinder announced that users around the world will soon have access to ID Verification. This safety feature was first introduced in Japan in 2019. Tinder ID Verification is complicated and nuanced. We are therefore taking a test-and learn approach to rollout. Tinder’s Head for Safety and Trust Rory Kozoll, shared this information in a press release. “We know that Tinder can make members feel safer. It can give them more control over who they interact. We hope that all of our members around the world will be able to see the benefits of interfacing with people who have completed our ID verification process. We are looking forward to the day when Tinder can verify as many people as possible.”
According to the dating app, it will consider experts’ recommendations and community feedback. It will also determine “what documents are most appropriate for each country and local laws and regulations.” This feature is voluntary and not required by law. Tinder’s ID Verification service will be available worldwide within the next quarter. And for now, did you know that you can now block any profile you don’t want on Tinder?
