Rape Threats

A spokesperson for the coalition to end violence against women, Andrea Simon, says it is essential that dating apps like Tinder take proactive measures to address abuse.

In her opinion, dating apps are an excellent way for people to meet. Still, they’re also causing increased rapes of women who use them, as perpetrators exploit this to find potential victims.

In the end, technology companies like Tinder profit from their business model of ignoring abuse. To protect users’ safety, they must be held accountable.

The new safety features on Tinder are a good step towards encouraging harassment reporting but do not go far enough to address abuse like cyber-flashing, image-based sexual abuse [sometimes referred to as rape threats], and cyber-flashing.

What’s First Strike?

There is hope that Tinder’s partnership with No More will alleviate some of these concerns.

  • The project aims to develop an app that will teach members how to date safely and competently.
  • A training program will also be provided to Tinder staff by No More.
  • According to Nyborg, starting a positive relationship with the first swipe is essential.
  • It is often the first message that sets the tone for your relationship with someone.”

Over the past year, Tinder has introduced several safety features. In addition, there is now automatic detection, with the sender asking, “Are you sure?” and the recipient requesting, “Does this bother you?”

According to MS Nyborg, the number of people reporting things they do not like has increased by 50%. The “Are you sure?” question, on the other hand, has helped reduce inappropriate messages by 10%, according to data from Match Group – which owns Tinder, Match.com, Meetic, OkCupid, Hinge, and Plenty of Fish. 

The tools and technologies they use for trust and safety have always been a priority,” MS Nyborg affirms. In some of our marketing campaigns, they now place trust and security/safety at the center.”

Panic Buttons 

By partnering with the non-profit organization Garbo, Tinder’s in-app safety center provides background checks on matches. Also, the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network developed a platform for reporting former abusers in a match list. 

Moreover, members can also choose to use a panic button and  ID verification in the countries where the laws allow it. Tinders comes with impressive features that lead to the uptake of confirmation. 

As a result, many dating companies have launched safety features to protect their users from abusers and rape threats.
