Positive Singles, one of the leading dating platforms for people suffering with STDs, has added a new discrete app icon to help users hide their condition or dating life.
They can choose to replace the ‘PS’ logo with another icon that could be less recognisable to other people who are looking at their phone. However, the displayed app name will stay the same.
Suny Zhang, a supervisor for Positive Singles, explained in a statement: “We believe that the world of dating is constantly evolving. It is really important to keep an eye out on the different ways by which online members could stay hooked.
“Our team works round the clock to come up with new and useful features that could be of help.”
Positive Singles currently has 18 million registered users and proudly claims over 60,000 success stories.
Discrete icons is a popular feature for some LGBTQ platforms to help protect users in regions where same-sex marriages are illegal. Grindr first made it available in the Middle East and North Africa, before rolling it out to the rest of its community in March.
More recently, Grindr introduced a desktop version of the app, which disguised the interface as a generic email account.
