Tinder is rolling out a new feature called ‘Share My Date,’ aimed at enhancing safety for users of the popular dating app. With this feature, users can easily share their date plans, including location, date, time, and match photo, directly from the app with friends and family. The feature allows users to create and share an unlimited number of dates up to 30 days in advance, providing transparency and peace of mind.

Such stories emphasize the need for users to exercise caution and awareness when navigating the world of online dating.
