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.”

Ramifications of a TikTok ban to impact Open Internet

Published

on

The United States’ longstanding advocacy for an open internet faces a critical juncture as Congress considers legislation targeting TikTok.

The proposed measures, including a forced sale or outright ban of TikTok, have sparked concerns among digital rights advocates and global observers about the implications for internet freedom and international norms.

For decades, the U.S. has championed the concept of an unregulated internet, advocating for the free flow of digital data across borders.

However, the move against TikTok, a platform with 170 million U.S. users, has raised questions about the consistency of America’s stance on internet governance.

Critics fear that actions against TikTok could set a precedent for other countries to justify their own internet censorship measures.

Russian blogger Aleksandr Gorbunov warned that Russia could use the U.S. decision to justify further restrictions on platforms like YouTube.

Similarly, Indian lawyer Mishi Choudhary expressed concerns that a U.S. ban on TikTok would embolden the Indian government to impose additional crackdowns on internet freedoms.

Moreover, the proposed legislation could complicate U.S. efforts to advocate for an internet governed by international organizations rather than individual countries.

China, in particular, has promoted a vision of internet sovereignty, advocating for greater national control over online content.

A TikTok ban could undermine America’s credibility in urging other countries to embrace a more open internet governed by global standards.
