Tackling catfishing on Tinder

The dating app is set to implement new ID verification tools that will be used to fight against catfishing, which is the name used to refer to those who use false pictures and information to lure someone into an online relationship. The new tool will allow users to verify their identities by sending Tinder an official document such as a driver’s licence or a valid passport, which will then be used to mark the user as verified on the dating platform. Will this affect the privacy of Tinder users ?
