Tin­der in­tro­duces panic bu on

The Citizen (KZN) - - World - Washington–

Tin­der an­nounced on Thurs­day that US users would soon have a “panic but­ton” to alert author­i­ties to po­ten­tially dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tions as part of a stepped up safety ini­tia­tive by the pop­u­lar dat­ing app.

A new fea­ture un­veiled by Tin­der will al­low users to opt into the per­sonal safety app Noon­light, which con­nects users to per­sonal emer­gency ser­vices. A Tin­der spokesper­son said the fea­ture would roll out in the com­ing days in the US and con­nect users to “trained dis­patch­ers who con­tact author­i­ties on be­half of the user”. – AFP
