The latest feature introduced by safety-conscious dating app TrueView seeks to prevent singles from uploading explicit images to the platform.
TrueView has introduced a brand new filter feature it says will help eliminate nude and explicit images that users sometimes upload to dating apps.
The new filter works by detecting faces and nudity within images, before scoring each one and removing those that are deemed “inappropriate”.
Co-founder of TrueView, Matt Verity, said: “I think the majority of online daters want penis shots and gratuitous body flashing shots to be a thing of the past.
“We have always promoted an honest dating space for people who are looking to form relationships rather than find casual hook-ups.
“We don’t want to take the fun out of dating, just bring some decorum back! Once users are chatting through private messages, it is up to them what they send, of course.”
This new feature is the latest effort by TrueView to keep singles safer online.
In October last year, the app announced that it had integrated with Jumio, the verification system used by Airbnb and easyJet, to let singles prove their identity and build trust on the dating app.
The London startup also created a feature that lets members build up a Trust Score, by linking their dating profile to various social media accounts, and adding more information about themselves to the app.
The more social accounts linked and details added, the higher a user’s Trust Score, with the strength of each network rated on its trustworthiness.
Each score is then used by the app to help filter members – those with low scores cannot see those with higher ones, and if someone has a high Trust Score, they can set their own preferences about who they will see.
