Tinder introduces Incognito mode, among suite of new safety features

Dating app giant Tinder has released three new safety features and expanded the words and phrases that could trigger AI filters which detect inappropriate and harmful language, before prompting users to report the content.

From today, Tinder users can block profiles before they’re matched on the app. Previously users were limited to ‘unmatching’ with people, which took place after they had ‘liked’ each other’s profiles. The dating giant claims this will allow people to avoid awkward situations like seeing a boss or an ex-partner.

The app has also made it easier for users to report offensive messages. The new ‘long press reporting’ update means people can just tap and hold the message before the app prompts users to report the comment.

Paying Tinder members will also have access to Incognito Mode, which means your profile will only be shared with the people you’ve already liked.

Updates have also been made to the app’s ‘Does This Bother You’ (DTBY) and ‘Are You Sure’ (AYS) filters which were launched in 2021. Tinder have now expanded what counts as hate speech, sexual exploitation and harassment language.

The DTBY technology automatically flags messages which could be problematic, while the AYS feature, asks users to pause and reflect on a potentially offensive message before hitting send.

Internal data found user-reporting of messages containing inappropriate and harmful language increased by 46 per cent since implementing the DTBY feature, plus a 10 per cent decrease inappropriate messages sent on the app.
