The upgrade makes the photo verification process more secure, and members can choose to only chat with others who are photo verified

INDIA — April 26, 2023 —  Tinder, the world’s most popular dating app, is strengthening its Photo Verification process by asking members to take a selfie video, a better way for them to prove who they are. Additionally, Photo Verified members can ask their match to do the same before chatting, giving them more control over how they interact with others. Within their Message Settings, Photo Verified members can also opt to only receive messages from Photo Verified members.

“Tinder daters consistently tell us that photo verification is one of their most valued safety features. The tool provides one more way to help members better assess the authenticity of their match. For our 18-25 year old members, being Photo Verified1 gives them a 10% higher chance to match,” said Rory Kozoll, SVP of Product Integrity at Tinder. “We will continue prioritizing these methods to help make Tinder a safer place to meet someone new.”
