Tinder is adding a panic button for dates that are going badly.

Tinder is adding a panic button for dates that get scary. To make mobile dating safer, the dating app is investing in emergency services platform Noonlight to add a panic button that notifies authorities if they find themselves in a threatening situation. Before dates, users can log information about their impending meet-up; that data and their real-time location will then be shared with authorities if an alert it hit—but the app’s parent company reports that users are comfortable with trading privacy for safety. YPulse found that 25% of 18-to-36-year-olds have used a dating app. (WSJCNN)
