Teen dating site no sign up
Tinder notifies users of matches when both users like each other’s profiles.
It then opens up a simple messaging option that allows users to chat, message, or share photos and videos with their matches.
You can then either swipe right to make a match with another user, tap his/her image to view more or swipe left to continue looking through potential matches.
The app currently has around 10 million daily users and is becoming very popular with teens.
A person 18 years or older cannot see Tinder profiles of users aged 17 and under.
Similarly, teens can view only profiles within the 13-17 age group.
Location Sharing Tinder uses GPS/location technology to match users who are near to each other.
The use of location technology can make it easy for other users to work out exactly where you are located.
Many teens use Tinder for fun and have no intentions of meeting up with a potential match.
The dating app, which is free to download, is really easy to use and there is very little effort required to set up your profile.
Users simply swipe through images to view potential matches, and in one click they can indicate anonymously whether they are interested in another user or not. The app uses information which is public from your Facebook profile to create your Tinder profile.
It is a good idea to speak to your child about the risk of speaking to people he/she doesn’t know online and to caution your child about meeting someone met online in person.
Cyberbullying Like many other apps that allow messaging between users, cyberbullying can easily occur on Tinder.
Young users should be aware of the risks of sharing images/video online.
