Tinder working to enhance women safety

According to the website, Tinder, the most popular dating app in the world, has made keeping women safe a priority.

The IT company is beginning a collaboration with the anti-domestic-violence organization No More.

Renate Nyborg, Tinder’s first female CEO, tells media News that “our safety work is never done.”

To address the disproportionate amount of violence women encounter online, the charity End Violence Against Women claims it is only a “modest start.”

With worries that sexual predators are attracted to dating applications, Tinder has come under fire for nasty interactions on the service.

The Tinder product team has seen a 30% increase in the number of women working there since Ms. Nyborg, 36, assumed the position of chief executive officer in September 2021. Ms. Nyborg claims that one of the ways she is addressing these concerns is by employing more women across the firm.

She told media News, “I think there is a difference between knowing something is essential and feeling it.

Like any woman, I can recall all the unpleasant events I’ve had, including the way people address you, how they treat you at work, and the things that can happen when you’re actively dating.

“I believe that every woman I speak with has gone through a lot like this, and I do believe that there is power in numbers.”

Dating applications like Tinder must take proactive measures to curb abuse, according to End Violence Against Women Coalition director Andrea Simon.

Dating apps, she says, “are a pretty common way for individuals to find each other, but there is also a really alarming aspect to the way criminals are using this to meet potential victims, resulting in a documented spike in rapes of women using dating apps.

“Tinder’s new safety measures are a modest effort to promote reporting of harassment, but they fall short in addressing abuse like threats of rape.

“Tech businesses like Tinder profit in the end from a business strategy that disregards the abuse that is made possible by their services.

It is essential that they be held accountable for making sure users are protected.

It is hoped that Tinder’s collaboration with No More would help to allay some of these worries.

The goal is to create an in-app program that instructs users on how to date safely and professionally.

Additionally, No More will train Tinder employees.

According to Ms. Nyborg, “We think that a good connection begins with the first swipe.

The initial message you send to someone can essentially set the tone for the rest of your interactions with them.

According to National Crime Agency data, the number of females who have been sexually assaulted while using online dating services has increased.

According to dating expert and matchmaker Alexis Germany, many young women worry about meeting someone in person, “especially when they’re getting invited to ‘Netflix and relax’ and stuff like that.
