Tinder has decided to implement a feature that provides an extra layer of protection to its users. The popular mobile dating app now has a tool to check a person’s background.

This new possibility comes thanks to the alliance between Tinder and Garbo, a company that provides easy access to information in the public domain on topics such as episodes of violence, arrests, time in prison and sexual violence.
It should be noted that, at the moment, the new function resulting from the Tinder and Garbo alliance is only available in the United States and that each query in the company’s database will have a price of US$2.50 along with a “small sum ” that has not yet been specified and could vary. For the launch of the feature, Tinder will give away 2 background searches at no cost.

The tool will be available in the Security Center section of the application. In order to use it, Garbo asks the user to provide basic information to start the search, such as the name or cell phone number of the person in question. If no record is found, it will request more information such as the age of the individual.
Although the big news is that Tinder will work with the company to provide this option to its users, Garbo is also available outside the application.
