SCAM NEWS: Tinder Is Adding A Panic Button To Its App For Dating Emergencies And Cracks Down On Catfishing
Tinder announced a slew of new safety features Thursday, ranging from letting users call emergency services while on a date to a photo verification system that ensures “every match is who they say they are.”
The updates come a little over a year after headlines about a suspected dating site serial killer rattled those looking for love online.
The dating platform is teaming up with safety app Noonlight to allow users to share details about upcoming dates so there is a record of who they are meeting, where and when.
It also gives users a panic button of sorts with the ability to call emergency services discreetly and easily if they feel they are in danger.
It works as a “silent bodyguard in situations when you’re alone or meeting someone for the first time,” Brittany LeComte, the co-founder and CCO of Noonlight said of her platform.

How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance [use caution, not advisable in all countries]
- Your National Police or FBI «www.IC3.gov» OR from within the U.S. «tips.FBI.gov»
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network «HERE» or on «www.Anyscam.com» [available anywhere]
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
