Tinder becomes safer: the incognito mode arrives

Tinder becomes safer

On Safer Internet Day , the Tinder app announces the launch of new features that will make the user experience safer . Among these, the most interesting is undoubtedly the "Incognito mode", which represents an important evolution compared to the option of completely hiding your profile. In this way, in fact, users can continue to "like" to their liking, but only the profiles who have liked them back will be able to see them among their suggestions. To make their browsing safer, the feature is designed to allow users to take complete control over who views their profile, while staying undisturbed to browse through other people's profiles. Reason why “incognito mode” is an option only for Tinder+, Gold and Premium members.

“Incognito mode is a new way for you to be in control of your experience - said Rory Kozoll , vice president of Product and Integrity at Tinder - You have always been in able to hide their profile on Tinder, but we wanted to create a feature that allows people to hide their profile but still be able to see everyone else and only be shown to people they like.”

But the "incognito mode" is not the only novelty announced by the famous dating app. Starting today, users can also take advantage of the new “ Lock profile ” function. This means that when the platform suggests a profile, even before the match, you can block it so that it will never be viewed again. A simple and practical way to avoid "tripping" into your boss or your ex boyfriend, according to the dating app itself. Furthermore, as if that weren't enough, the Tinder app has also added the possibility of reporting incorrect behavior by introducing "Long Press Reporting", an option for reporting offensive messages directly within the chat.

Finally , the platform also announced the update of the two functions “Does it bother you? ” and “ Are you sure? ”, expanding the number of keywords, phrases and emojis that could be considered harmful to users. “ Over the years, we have introduced safety at every stage - said Kozoll -. From trying to understand the authenticity of our members and making sure that members are respectful to each other. We see the whole journey as a place where we can help. And so today, we're looking at the latest features from that evolution.”
