Popular Dating App Tinder has announced that it will make its ID verification service mandatory for all members around the world in the coming quarters. That is, now you have to give your government ID to date someone on Tinder. This is done by taking into account the recommendations of experts to determine which documents are most appropriate in each country and what are the local laws and regulations, Tinder said in a statement.
How does the Tinder ID Verification feature work?
Tinder users need to upload a government or other official ID to verify their identity. According to the company, the idea behind it is to make its members safer and give them more confidence in who they interact with. Nothing has been said about how and when this feature will be rolled out in India.
First introduced in Japan
The Tinder ID verification feature was first released in Japan in 2019, where the company wants to identify its users as being at least 18 years old. In that country, Tinder allows its users to upload a driver’s license, passport or health ID to verify their identity. In Japan, the company claims to retain information about the user’s ID or their ID for 90 days after the age of irrigation for “quality assurance purposes”. Recently, Tinder has introduced a feature that allows members to block separate connections from the phone book in the App.

The Block Contacts feature allows users to input or view their contacts in Tinder. Whether those contacts are already on Tinder or later downloaded using the same contact information, the app does not appear to be a potential match.
