PCMAG - Tinder users in the US will soon be able to conduct background checks on potential matches. Match Group last year teamed up with Garbo to provide screening technology for Tinder. Founded in 2018 by Kathryn Kosmides, a survivor of gender-based violence, Garbo helps prevent dangerous situations by providing information about people before they connect. Its background checks compile public records and reports of violence or abuse - including arrests, convictions, restraining orders, harassment, and other violent crimes. Match Group last year promised that once Garbo is fully adopted on Tinder, its other brands - Match, OkCupid, PlentyOfFish, etc. - will follow.
