Dating app Tinder has released a series of safety features that are designed to help users stay safe when on dates. The company has paired up with Noonlight to offer personal emergency services, photo verification, and an offensive message detector.

Through Noonlight, Tinder users can share information about who they are meeting, where they are going, and when they are leaving. And if the date goes awry, they can trigger a discrete emergency service using the app.

“Noonlight acts as a silent bodyguard in situations when you're alone or meeting someone for the first time,” Brittany LeComte, co-founder and CCO at Noonlight said in a statement. “Now, through our integration with Tinder, it can serve as a quick backup for daters, helping to deter bad behavior and helping members meet matches with more confidence.

“It’s a first-of-its-kind added security measure to help protect Tinder members even when they’ve taken their interactions off the app into real life,” she added.

Noonlight also offers a photo verification feature that allows users to self-authenticate their date through a series of real-time photos. The photo verification option will compare these newly posted photos to profile photos posted on Tinder using human-assisted artificial intelligence to ensure that a person is who they say they are.

Tinder will roll out the photo verification feature, which is currently being tested in select markets, throughout 2020.

Additional features being introduced by Tinder include an offensive message detector that asks users, “Does this bother you?” This feature of the app is powered by machine learning and allows users to report a person for offensive behavior.
