The most used dating application in the world has thought about how to avoid these embarrassing and unwanted encounters.

Tinder has indeed announced in these hours that it has launched a new function in this regard that allows users to block personal contacts in the app, so you don't run into unwanted people.

A recent survey commissioned by Tinder found that over 40% of respondents met a former partner on a dating app. Another 24% saw a family member or colleague, and one in ten even came across their teacher's profile. 78% of respondents would prefer not to see or be seen by these people on an app, if there was the possibility.

This possibility now exists and is called "Block contacts". As the name implies, it allows Tinder users to block unwanted contacts on the app via their phone numbers. If the blocked contacts are already on Tinder or decide to download it later using the same contact information, they won't show up as potential matches.

The Block Contacts feature is an additional resource "that lets members rest easy, helping you create a worry-free space to trigger new connections," added Morgan.

Block Contacts, now available globally, is has been tested in India, Korea and Japan, and according to the app reveals, members who have chosen to use the feature have added a dozen contacts to their block list.
