Tinder is a location-based social discovery application that facilitates communication between mutually interested users. The dating app allows users to chat with their matches.
Using Facebook, Tinder is able to build a user profile with photos that have already been uploaded. Basic information is gathered and the users' social graph is analysed.
Candidates who are most likely to be compatible based on geographical location, number of mutual friends and common interests are then streamed into a list of matches.
Based on the results of potential candidates, the app allows the user to anonymously ‘like’ another user by swiping right or pass by swiping left on them. If two users ‘like’ each other it then results in a ‘match’ and they are able to chat within the app.

Tinder is intended for people over the age of 18.
You must have a Facebook account to access Tinder.
In order to use Tinder, you must sign in using your Facebook login. Your Tinder profile will be viewable by other users of the service. Other users will be able to view information you have provided to Tinder directly or through Facebook – for example:
If you swipe right to say ‘yes’ to a person, you will be able to chat with that person if they swipe right to you, for example when you have a ‘match’. If you chat with your match, of course your match will see the content of your chat.
You have the ability to review and update your personal information within Tinder by opening your Account and going to Settings. You may also close your account at any time by visiting the Settings page for your account.
You can report users that you have already matched with, and users you haven’t matched with. To report someone, go to their profile, tap the Menu icon (ellipsis icon) and tap Report.
It’s important to note that under the Tinder terms, the company is not responsible for the conduct of any user. No criminal background checks or screenings are conducted on behalf of Tinder on its users.
Tinder is free to download from the App store and Google play. You can upgrade to Tinder Plus for a fee which provides users with more features.
