Tinder’s Photo Verification update is designed to make sure users are who they say they are and keep the dating app secure. With a video selfie, instead of photos, users will be more diligent in proving their identity and avoiding scams. Additionally, soon Tinder will allow only Photo Verified users to chat with one another. This safeguard against malfeasance is essential for protecting the privacy of the app’susers.
Tinder is making changes to their app in order to make it safer for its users. One of the changes is the update which will now require users to input a password before they can start swiping. This was done in order to help protect against unauthorized access and use of account information.
The feature arrives at a time when users are increasingly relying on AI-powered tools to create fake photos and personas, which can fill dating apps with bots who are only out to spam their matches. A ‘liveness’ check, such as the one that video selfies currently require, is a much stronger means of vetting that people are who they say they are and weeding out spammers.
Tinder is working with a third-party partner to manage the video selfie verification process, but declined to name the vendor. While it may be disappointing for some Tinder users who were hoping for more control over how their profile looks, this move likely means increased safety for those using the app.
A potential issue with the new model is that it may be difficult for users to complete the video prompts, as they would have to match not only the facial features seen in their profile photo, but also those seen in any videos that they have publicly shared.
Ever since the company announced that it was phasing out photos in favor of videos, many users have been concerned about what this means for their verification status. Now, it looks like those worries may be coming to fruition as the update rolls out on Wednesday. Users who want to maintain their verification can still upload photos, but those who aim to become Photo Verified will need to take a video selfie. This change is likely intended to reduce spam and abuse, but some users may find it difficult or inconvenient to take a video selfie.
Users who want to keep their verified status on Tinder will need to upgrade to the latest version of the app. This not only ensures that photos are taken with a more robust video selfie feature, but also addresses the problem of lapsed Tinder users returning to the app and their old verified photos.
Tinder is continuing to update its features in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience. The latest addition, which uses videos instead of photos, will help weed out people who are not genuine and may be hampering the Tinder experience for sincere users. In addition, the company is introducing new features that will allow Photo Verified members to see only other Photo Verified members in their recommendations, as well as allowing members to ask their Matches toPhoto Verify before they’re allowed to send a message. Hopefully this will help keep the Tinder experience clean and trustworthy for all users.
Tinder has always had a large number of members, with a wide variety of ages and backgrounds. This new feature, which filters the likes page for Photo Verified members only, will make it easier for people to find people who share their interests.
For many people, connecting with someone online is a way to feel close to them without ever actually meeting in person. With services like Tinder, users can share photos of themselves and see if anyone else on the app is interested in talking to them. While many people think that using these types of apps is harmless fun, there are also those who believe that these apps can be used for more nefarious purposes. One such app that has come under fire recently for its use of Photo Verification is OkCupid.
Photo Verification has been proven to increase matches on the service, as users feel more assured that their potential match is a real person, not a bot – and they look like their photos. Tinder says among its 18-25 year old users being Photo Verified gives them a 10% higher chance to match meaning it’s definitely something worth considering if you’re looking for an app that will help you meet new people!
Tinder wants to make sure that the people you’re messaging are who they say they are, so the Photo Verification feature will roll out today and the ability to restrict messages to “Photo Verified Members” will arrive in “the coming months.” This way, you can be sure that the person you’re messaging is who they claim to be.
