Tinder To Roll Out Voluntary ID Verification for All Users

A feature that first launched in Japan in 2019.

Tinder has announced that its users across the globe will soon be able to access ID Verification, a safety feature first introduced to Japan in 2019.

“ID Verification is complex and nuanced, which is why we are taking a test-and-learn approach to the rollout. We know one of the most valuable things Tinder can do to make members feel safe is to give them more confidence that their matches are authentic and more control over who they interact with,” Tinder’s Head of Trust and Safety Product Rory Kozoll shared in a press release. “And we hope all our members worldwide will see the benefits of interacting with people who have gone through our ID verification process. We look forward to a day when as many people as possible are verified on Tinder.”

According to the dating app, it will take experts’ recommendations and its community’s feedback into consideration, as well as find out “what documents are most appropriate in each country, and local laws and regulations.” The feature will be voluntary, “except where mandated by law.”

Tinder’s ID Verification will launch worldwide in the coming quarters. In case you missed it, did you know you can now block unwanted profiles on the platform?
