Tinder is now fortifying its photo verification system with video to be precise. And they are doing this simply by asking members to take a series of video selfies in order to prove that they are actually the real person they claim to be and not just some AI hound dog. The new feature which was announced today will be rolled out globally as the new method to verify your account on the platform and it will be needed to earn the coveted verified blue checkmark.

How the Whole Process Works

The new process in Tinder to verify yourself with a video selfie as you should know involves recording a video of yourself in the app making use of your smartphone’s front camera to make sure that you are a person. It sounds very much similar to other modern digital verifications which are inclusive of Apple’s and Google’s State ID process and even other dating apps such as Hinge.

The latter as you should know implemented the video selfie feature in the previous year to combat the soaring rates of romance scams spanning across multiple platforms, which at the time included unfortunate stories of car thefts and even crypto snatchers.

The Benefits of Video Verifications on Tinder

Being verified on the dating app will also give users the option to only communicate with members that are also verified which is an elite circle on the platform that is known as “Photo Verified Cuties.” Those persons on the other hand who are already verified on the platform may not get to remain a cutie for a long time as the service is planning to ask all of its members to re-verify with video selfies in the next couple of months as per a press release.
