ID verification on Tinder

Asking for ID to verify a person’s identity in order to use social media and other online platforms has been suggested by some as a way of combating online abuse by removing anonymity and the perceived ability of abusers to avoid accountability. Tinder is to introduce ID verification for users of the dating app around the world, amid ongoing debate around using the technology to combat online abuse. The firm said it would begin by making the process voluntary, except where mandated by law, and would take into account expert recommendations and what documents are most appropriate in each country. DO you think that this will expose online whistleblowers?
