Tinder, the renowned dating app, has unveiled a ‘Share My Date’ feature allowing users to share essential information, including date, location, time, and even a photo of their match, through a single link generated within the app up to 30 days before the date.

This feature will roll out in key regions, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Singapore, India, Ireland, Germany, France, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Switzerland, Mexico, Netherlands, Italy, Korea, Vietnam, and Thailand in the coming months.

The editable link will work even for non-Tinder users. This streamlined communication enhances communication and ensures transparency and security, which is particularly valued in today’s digital dating landscape.

The ‘Share My Date’ feature responds to evolving social norms, where individuals increasingly seek to involve their close circle in their dating experiences. According to Tinder insights, more than half of singles under 30 already share the details of their dates with friends, highlighting a growing desire for shared experiences and increased safety measures.

“At Tinder, we continue to release new features that aim to create a fun, safe, and respectful experience for all,” said Melissa Hobley, CMO of Tinder. “Discussing plans with friends and family is a time-honoured dating ritual. Share My Date streamlines this basic info-sharing so singles can jump right to the exciting part, from figuring out what to wear to prepping conversation topics.”

This isn’t the first security feature integrated by Match Group, a company that owns Tinder and other dating apps such as Hinge, OkCupid, and PlentyOfFish. In 2022, Tinder launched a background check feature for users in the US, where for a nominal fee of $2.50, users can do a background check on their potential date by entering their name and phone number.
