Background checks for Tinder

Tinder and other Match Group-owned apps are going to let their users run background checks on possible dates. This facility comes with an investment from Garbo, a non-profit that allows people to run background checks using only a first name and phone number or full name.

Tinder users will vet their dates with details like their arrest record or history of violence. The background checks on Tinder won’t be free, but Match is working with Garbo to figure out how to price them so they’re accessible to most users.
