The outlet reported that the online dating giant will also test a new update, which features a photo verification tool to ensure that users are actually communicating with a real, live person.
Tinder and its online dating siblings including PlentyOfFish, OkCupid and Hinge, which make up the Match Group, will be spun off as an independent company this year, according to parent firm IAC.
The new services will go live across all of Match's products and services in the U.S., starting with Tinder from January 28. If something goes wrong, users will be able to tap on the panic button - this will notify the authorities with accurate location information of the user.

It will employ human-assisted Artificial Intelligence (AI) to check that profile pictures uploaded to app, with users asked to verify their identity by taking several real-time selfies.
In addition to the panic button, Tinder is establishing a photo verification system that will add verification check marks to people's profile. They'll then be instructed to enter a code.
The on-demand integration will allow members to share details about upcoming dates via Noonlight's Timeline feature, including who they are meeting, where and when, with the ability to easily and discreetly trigger emergency services if they are feeling uneasy or in need of assistance via the Noonlight app.

Additionally, users who utilize the safety feature will also be publicly flagged as opting in - which Engadget reports is to "act as a deterrent to any bad actors on the [dating] platform".
