With Safer Internet Day (and Valentine’s Day approaching), is starting to roll out some new and updated to some others. Incognito mode is now available for users. This, according to Tinder, is a “step up” from hiding your profile completely. Only people who like you will show you in their recommendations. This gives you more control over visibility.
Additionally, you can block profiles that pop up in suggestions. So if you find an ex or someone else in your life, such as a family member, it might alleviate some of the awkwardness.
There is another new safety feature called Long Press Report. If you receive an offensive message or unwanted photo, you can quickly report it with a long press. Tinder says it hopes this will encourage more people to report bad behavior so they can take action against users who break their rules.
Meanwhile, Tinder has made some changes to features called “Are You Sure” (which asks people to think twice before sending messages with potentially harmful language) and “Does This Bother You.” Tinder says the feature will detect more language deemed harmful or inappropriate, including hate speech, sexual harassment and exploitation. Since adding “Does This Bother You,” he’s seen a 46% increase in reports of messages containing offensive language, according to the company.
