This has never happened to me, but I’ve known a number of people who’d been catfished when meeting their dating app match for the first time. Their date would look noticeably different from their online profiles, creating an awkward encounter. To qualm daters’ fears, Tinder has launched a few new safety features for its app. One is a photo verification system that puts a blue check mark on daters’ profiles once their pictures are confirmed as “legit”. To accomplish this, users upload a selfie, which Tinder uses to cross reference and legitimize photos. Overall, it’s a good effort to keep people safe from all those creeps lurking on these apps.
