Tinder to add panic button and anti-catfishing tech

Tinder is adding a panic button and other safety features to the dating app.

The new functions will include emergency assistance, location tracking, and photo verification.

Tinder will offer the features first in the US from 28 January, but didn’t say when they will be available globally.

Parent company Match Group – which also owns PlentyOfFish, OkCupid and Hinge – aims to roll out the features on its other dating platforms later this year.

Match Group said it had invested in Noonlight, which provides the online emergency response services and personal safety products that Tinder will use.
