New Delhi. In a bid to strengthen the photo verification process, dating app Tinder on Wednesday said it will now ask members to take a selfie video to confirm that the person in the picture is indeed them.
Also, the company said that photo verified members can also ask to do so before chatting with their match.
Photo Verified Members can choose to receive messages only from Photo Verified Members by going to their Message Settings.
The company said that starting today, video selfies with photo verification are available globally and the ability to select ‘Photo Verified Members’ only in message settings will roll out in the coming months.
“Tinder daters consistently tell us that photo verification is one of their most important security features,” Rory Kozol, SVP of Product Integrity at Tinder, said in a statement. The tool is a way to help members better assess the authenticity of their matches. Provides another way. For our 18-25 year old members, having photo verification gives them a 10 percent higher chance of being matched.”
In addition, the dating app said that about 40 percent of all members have received their photo verified blue checkmark.
After conducting preliminary tests, it was found that when presented with a video selfie, more men were likely to complete the photo verification process.
In response, Tinder has decided to prompt all new members to complete photo verification when creating a profile.(IANS)
