Tinder swipes right on user safety with new feature

Published

The online dating platform strengthens their safety values with the introduction of their new ID verification feature.

Tinder app soon to have new ID verification feature

ID verification will soon be available to Tinder users as the dating platform works to improve its safety features. 

Today’s announcement will see the identification verification feature across platforms globally within the coming quarters. 

Tinder says the platform will take into consideration expert recommendations, member input, and local laws and regulations when determining how the feature will roll out. 

The option will be voluntary, except where mandated by law, and will develop based on feedback received by Tinder’s users. 

Rory Kozoll, Head of Trust and Safety Product at Tinder, says ID verification is complex and nuanced, which is why it is crucial to take a test-and-learn approach.

“We know one of the most valuable things Tinder can do to make members feel safe is to give them more confidence that their matches are authentic and more control over who they interact with,” Kozoll says. 

Tinder is the leader of safety innovation in the online dating world.

In the past 10 years, the online dating platform has rolled out more than 10 key safety features, including the creation of their swipe feature and mutual consent technology.

Additionally, Tinder will partner with Garbo, a female-founded, first of its kind, non-for-profit background-check platform. 

Kozoll says the introduction of this feature is just another step in helping Tinder users feel safe and confident in their online dating choices. 

“We hope all our members worldwide will see the benefits of interacting with people who have gone through our ID verification process,” Kozoll says. 

“We look forward to a day when as many people as possible are verified on Tinder.”

Twitter Files: Jack Dorsey urges Elon Musk to ‘release everything without filter’

The fallout continues as Elon Musk keeps pursuing transparency

Ex-Twitter boss Jack Dorsey is calling on the new CEO Elon Musk to make all the ‘Twitter files’ public.

The move comes after the company’s former deputy general counsel James Baker was fired for his role in suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story.

Baker is accused of being part of a ‘deep state’ at the social media platform and sabotaging or obstructing the recent efforts by Musk in releasing information to the public.

Twitter’s former deputy general counsel James Baker is also former counsel to FBI director James Comey.

The situation allegedly came to Musk’s attention on Tuesday after revelations that Baker was delaying the release of files showing government collusion with Twitter to journalists Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss.

In a Tuesday thread Taibbi wrote, “On Friday, the first installment of the Twitter files was published here. We expected to publish more over the weekend. Many wondered why there was a delay.”

“We can now tell you part of the reason why. On Tuesday, Twitter Deputy General Counsel (and former FBI General Counsel) Jim Baker was fired. Among the reasons? Vetting the first batch of ‘Twitter Files’ — without knowledge of new management.”

Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan promised investigations into this and other Big Tech firms colluding with government officials to suppress information.

“I am very concerned about the government influencing big tech in this collusion we now see big tech, big media, big government all working to keep information from with the people,” Jordan said.

When asked about this story during the White House daily press briefing, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said she will not comment of things that happened during U.S. President Joe Biden’s presidential election.

Elon Musk has briefly lost his title as the world’s richest person

This is all following a steep drop in the value of his stake in Tesla and his $44 billion purchase of Twitter.

Bernard Arnault, the CEO of LVMH, which includes luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, briefly took over the title, with a personal wealth of $185 billion.

Musk has held the top position since late 2021, but has seen his wealth drop, as Tesla investors are worried that he is focused more on Twitter than the electric vehicle company.

Tesla has lost nearly half of its market value and Musk’s value has fallen approximately $70 billion since he made a bid for Twitter back in April.

San Fran authorities are investigating potential violations of the building code
