NEW DELHI: Popular Online Dating App Tinder introduced a new security feature aimed at reducing the number of hateful messages sent on the platform. The new feature called Are you sure? ((AYS) will be available to every user shortly.
This new security feature from Tinder uses artificial intelligence to detect offensive language. When the program determines that the language is offensive, it asks the user if they want to keep sending the message. The feature lets users think twice before sending an abusive or offensive message.
The company has been testing this feature with some users for a while and believes that the AYS feature has succeeded in creating a better environment for everyone. Tinder mentions that members who saw the AYS prompts were reported less often for inappropriate messages over the next month, indicating that AYS is changing longer-term behavior, not just behavior in a conversation.
On the other hand, do the members who saw this bother you? have more power to report bad behavior; Inappropriate news reports increased 46 percent.
Tracey Breeden, Head of Security and Social Advocacy at Match Group, said, “Words are as powerful as actions, and today we are taking an even stronger position that harassment has no place on Tinder. The first results of these functions show us This intervention can be right to change behavior and build a community where everyone can feel like themselves. ”
“We are pleased that Tinder continues to innovate in the area of security. By expressing its expectations of respectful communication and letting users pause for a moment to consider a potentially offensive message, Tinder engages their community to create a safer platform. This new tool gives users an easy way to flag harassing messages and helps Tinder identify and take action on those users who are unwilling to act responsibly, “added Breeden.
