Tinder is a dating app created for users to meet strangers in their local area or globally and is owned by Match Group.

A user sets the stated age, gender and location of people they want to meet. Swiping right on someone’s profile indicates that a user likes them and swiping left indicates they are not interested in connecting with them. If two users both swipe right on each other’s profile, it’s a ‘match’ and they can chat in the app.

Users must share their location with Tinder in order to find local matches. They can add information like their interests, company and sexual orientation to their profile. Users can pay for things like unlimited swipes or preventing the app from showing their distance from other users.

Tinder is for adults so it has no parental controls. Safety settings include the ability for a user to turn off ‘read receipts’ (so that the sender of a message can’t see if it’s been read) and whether they have been active on the app recently. A user can hide their profile from other users but then cannot see other profiles. They can block and report other users and turn off personalised advertising.
