Online dating platform Tinder, today announced a comprehensive in-app Safety Center in India. The company keeps rolling out useful features to its platform to enhance the user experience. But the new dedicated features will allow users easy access to tools relevant to their well-being while using the platform.
Commenting on the announcement Bernadette Morgan, Director, Trust & Safety Product at Tinder said, “Every day, millions of our members trust us to introduce them to new people, and we’re committed to building safety features that meet the needs of today’s online dating communities. I’m proud to announce the availability of this feature in India. For us, it represents an important step in driving our safety work forward at an unmatched scale in the market.”
The Tinder in-app Safety Center has been built by the company’s dedicated Trust & Safety team. As an evolving section of the app, content in the Safety Center will continually be reviewed and updated as needed. Topics will include the latest guidance for dating safely and offer educational resources –as well as list local NGOs and hotlines offering support– such as National Commission for Women, Pink Legal, Umang LBT Support Group, One Future Collective and The Humsafar Trust.
In order to access the Safety Centre on the Tinder app, all you need to do is open the application on your device and tap on your profile icon. Then simply select Safety from there.
According to Tinder, its aim is to centralise safety-related resources and provide avenues of support that connect members in need with relevant experts. Also, the Safety Center will be available at members’ fingertips via the app’s main menu and any time members chat with potential matches. With the launch, Tinder is trying to make the platform a trusted and safe space for everyone who joins. It has also worked closely with the Match Group Advisory Council (MGAC) as well as NGOs to continue building features and processes to keep members safer.
Previously the online dating application Tinder also rolled out the functionality to block them up by their contact number to avoid awkwardly swiping your ex, relatives and colleagues. The Block Contacts feature on Tinder can be accessed within the profile setting from where the member will be able to enter their contact which they’d rather not see, or not be seen by, on the dating app.
