Tinder was pretty ticked off after the AIDS Health Foundation put up billboards that not so subtly associated the dating app with STDs (see below). Tinder responded by adding a health safety section to its website and app, which includes a link to software that locates the nearest STD testing clinic and info on other common sex-ed topics.
“Tinder empowers our users to create relationships,” the new page reads. “An important aspect of any relationship—whether formed on Tinder or otherwise—is ensuring proper sexual health and safety.”
This is definetly a step in the right direction, but good luck finding the info. Tinder users have to click the settings button on the top left of the app, navigate to “help and support,” then click “health safety,” and scroll to the bottom. Not as easy as swiping right.
