Tinder Releases Updated Security Features, Such As An Incognito Mode

 

In an effort to give users of the dating app more choice over how they engage with others, Tinder is introducing new features. To commemorate Safer Internet Day, the new features, which are being implemented globally, were revealed today.
“Incognito Mode,” one of the new capabilities, is a step up from completely obscuring your profile. The app still allows users to Like and Nope, but only those they’ve Liked will see them in their suggestions.

Users will be able to completely control who sees them while browsing Tinder profiles thanks to the feature. For Tinder+, Gold, and Premium members only, Incognito Mode is a premium feature.

In an interview with TechCrunch, Rory Kozoll, Tinder’s SVP of Product and Integrity, said: “Incognito Mode is a new method to be able to govern your experience.” You’ve always had the option to conceal your Tinder profile, but we wanted to add a feature that would allow users to do so while still being able to see everyone else and only be visible to the individuals they find attractive.

Additionally, the business is introducing a brand-new “Block Profile” tool that allows users to select who they wish to view on Tinder. Users can now block suggested profiles before a match is made so they won’t appear again.

According to Tinder, the function offers a simple way to avoid running into coworkers or ex-lovers on the app. In addition to the present “Block Contacts” option, which allows users to choose which of their contacts they’d prefer not to view or be seen by on Tinder, the new feature will soon be available.

Additionally, Tinder has included “Long Press Reporting,” which makes it simpler for users to report inappropriate activity. With the long-press reporting feature, users may tap and hold objectionable messages to open the reporting flow right in the chat window. The business claims that by making the reporting procedure easier, it expects to encourage more users to report inappropriate behavior on the app.

Last, Tinder is updating its “Does This Bother you?” and “Are You Sure” prompts to include more language that it classifies as being harmful. The “Are You Sure?” prompt appears before a message is sent when Tinder detects harmful language. The “Does This Bother You?” prompt encourages users to report inappropriate conversations so that the company can take action against users who break the app’s rules.

We have been incorporating safety into every step over the years, Kozoll claimed. “From attempting to discern the sincerity of our members to ensuring that members are respectful of one another. We see ourselves as being able to support that entire process. We’re looking at the most recent developments in that progression today.
