About The Guide

What Parents Need to Know About Tinder

Published 6th October 2021

A free online safety guide on Tinder.

Tinder is a free online mobile dating app used by more than 50 million people worldwide. Users sign up using their Facebook account and are matched with other people based on various preferences, such as location, age and shared interests. The user can swipe right to show interest in a profile (and connect as a match) or swipe left to ignore (decline) the match. If two users both like each other’s profile and become a match, they are then able to communicate with each other directly.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as privacy concerns, emotional harm and pressure to meet strangers.

This is part of our Online Relationships and Online Information categories.
