Tinder just launched verified celebrity profiles

Imagine swiping through Tinder and coming across what looks like a celebrity’s photo. Surely it’s a dodgy account, right?

Perhaps not, and Tinder wants to help you separate the celebs from the spam with verified ticks for high-profile Tinder users.

After all, just because someone is rich and famous doesn’t mean they don’t want to find a honey-bunch to snuggle with too.

As such, starting today Tinder will be assigning a blue tick to celebrities so that other users know their profile is legit.

Each day, 26 million matches are made on Tinder, and we do our best to keep those matches real – that’s why we’re rolling out Verified Profiles,” explains a Tinder blog post.

It’s the same blue tick you see on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and could stop you from falling foul of a scam account.

According to Tinder, blue ticks will be passed out to “notable public figures, celebrities, and athletes.”

However, as with Twitter, you won’t actually be able to request your own tick – Tinder will find you if you’re famous enough.

Still not down with the Tinder hype? You’ll need a solid smartphone first, so check out our smartphone video group test below:
