US users of the dating platform will be able to feel more secure with the new feature that the application will incorporate later this month.
Through Tinder's association with Noonlight , users will be able to alert emergency services in a simple and discreet manner through a panic button, which will be added soon to the application.
With Noonlight users will have the possibility to enter information and details of the appointment, such as the time, the meeting place and data of the person they are going to meet.
If the user activates the Noonlight alert, he will request the code sent, which must be entered in order to avoid false alarms and confirm the request for help.
If the code is not entered the user will receive a text message and a phone call. If it is not attended or if it is effectively confirmed that assistance is needed, a notice will automatically be sent to 911 (United States Police).
It is known that at the moment this option will be available only for this country and that it will be useful if the person is alone or knows someone for the first time.
This security measure is the first that Tinder has taken to protect its users when interactions are no longer just virtual.
Either way, the app also announced that it will include a user authentication system. For this, photos taken in real time must be uploaded to the profile, which will be validated. This measure will generate more confidence for the rest of the members of the platform.
