Tinder's parent company Match Group Inc. has teamed up with Noonlight - a safety platform that can trigger requests to emergency services, to enhance the app by allowing a user hit a panic button as well as receive a check-in.
The new feature will let users add information such as the time and details about the other person prior to the date. Then, if the user triggers an alert, Noonlight can share the information, along with the user’s real-time location, with emergency services.
Previously, the company only had moderators who were looking into cases of abusive language and inappropriate photos.
The new feature will be available to US users at the end of January, while others will enjoy it in the coming months.
