Tinder ID verification: How this new feature may get users more ‘matches’, prevent scams

Tinder

has announced that it is expanding its

ID Verification

option to more countries. This means that users will now have to confirm the authenticity of their profiles and have a chance to get more matches as well as be safe from scams.
Tinder piloted the feature in Australia and New Zealand and is now bringing this feature to users in the US, UK, Brazil and Mexico.

“To help users confirm the authenticity of profiles, Tinder plans to make this feature available in the US and Mexico by summer and in the UK and Brazil by spring,” it said.
As a part of ID verification, users in these countries will soon be able to confirm the authenticity of profiles, focusing on date of birth and likeness to get a chance to get more matches. Tinder claims that during its pilot, users who were

ID Verified

received more matches than those who weren’t verified.
“Last fall, Tinder piloted this feature in Australia and New Zealand and users who completed the ID Verification option saw a 67% increase in matches than those not verified,” it added. The company has not provided information on when the feature will be available in India.

What documents can be used to verify profiles?
The ID Verification process requires a video selfie and a valid Driver’s Licence or Passport. The app will check whether the face in the video selfie matches both the photo on the ID as well as the person’s profile photos. It will also check the date of birth on the ID and all this can be done on the user’s Profile page.
Users who complete

Photo Verification

will receive a blue camera icon badge and users who only complete the ID Verification will receive a blue ID icon badge. Users who complete both ID + Photo Verification will receive the blue checkmark.
