Tinder Has Launched A Low-Cost Background Check Service For Potential Dates

Tinder Is Now Offering Low-cost Background Checks For Potential Dates

Everyone should have the tools they need to securely enjoy dating in the digital era, whether they’re looking for dates at a pub or swiping left and right on Tinder.

Unfortunately, as access to people over the internet has become more convenient, so has become a victim of violence.

Tinder, on the other hand, is now allowing users to conduct background checks on potential dates for as little as $2.50 per search.

Tinder has partnered with Garbo to allow users access to public information such as arrests, convictions, and offender registration records before going out to dine with someone, according to a news release.

“We know that a history of these types of actions is the best predictor of future abuse or violence,” said Garbo founder Kathryn Kosmides.

“Whether it’s online dating or one of the dozens of other ways we meet strangers in today’s digital world, we should be aware of the risks we’re taking.”

We aim to protect people who are most vulnerable to online and offline damage, and this is just the beginning of our goal to assist proactively prevent harm in the digital age.”

Garbo is a non-profit background check platform that claims to be the first of its kind, with the goal of empowering individuals to make better decisions by providing access to public safety information.

Tracey Breeden, Tinder’s parent business The Match Group’s Head of Social and Social Advocacy, emphasized the importance of Garbo’s new contribution to the digital arena as it relates to underrepresented groups of people.

“Women and traditionally oppressed groups have faced several impediments to resources and safety for far too long.

Garbo’s intelligent and innovative consumer background checks will propel the industry forward while providing crucial information to assist individuals make better personal safety decisions.”

Lauren Smith-Fields, a 23-year-old black woman who was found dead in her apartment after meeting with an older white man she met on Bumble, has recently sparked outrage on the internet. Unfortunately, the chief medical examiner in Connecticut judged her death an accident.
