What you need to know
- Tinder is rolling out its ID verification program globally.
- The feature will allow you to verify yourself on the app with an ID or some form.
While Twitter has put its verification program on hold (again), you might just be able to get verified on Tinder (opens in new tab).
In a blog post, the company announced that it will be rolling out its ID verification program globally. The feature will be voluntary for most areas and the company plans to continuously add additional forms of appropriate identification as it learns of them.
Rory Kozoll, Head of Trust & Safety Product at Tinder, said that the company is taking a "test-and-learn approach" with its global rollout of the feature in order to adapt to the needs of its community across different areas.
Tracey Breeden, VP of Safety and Social Advocacy at Match Group, says that the company is using a number of partnerships and technologies to ensure that D Verification is used correctly to create a safer platform.
The company says that the ID verification program, which started in Japan back in 2019, will be rolled out globally "over the coming quarters."
