Tinder is getting ready for an update this week that will alert its LGBTQ consumers when they are traveling in a nation where their dating preferences might put them at lawful danger. Dubbed as “Traveler Alert,” the function will hide users’ profiles automatically when they are traveling abroad in nations where same-sex relations are against the law. Consumers can then select whether they need to stay unseen. If they make a decision to have a public profile, their gender identity or sexual orientation will be eliminated temporarily to defend them against people who may target them or law enforcement. The notification will only show up if users are on the ground in these nations or if they are employing Tinder Passport.
The Tinder team joined hands with the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association to classify the 69 nations where same-sex relations are against the law. Punishment for same-sex relationships and acts different from region to region, but in 9 nations, comprising Saudi Arabia and Iran, prosecutors can look for the death penalty in opposition to same-sex relationships and acts.
Other dating applications comprising Scruff (the gay dating app) also alert consumers about possible outcomes of LGBTQ dating in specific nations. Certainly, Tinder counts millions of individuals all over the world as consumers, and it has lately started particularly aiming on courting more users overseas. As it extends its reach, the firm requires keeping it consumers safe and aware of what might take place if they keep their profiles public.
On a related note, Tinder has already revealed its plans to extend all over the world, particularly in Asia. It earlier claimed that it is taking the next sensible action in that mission and launching a smaller variant of its Android app—dubbed as Tinder Lite.
