Tinder’s Passport Feature Allows You To Connect With Anyone In The World For Free
Tinder is making dating abroad easier during self-isolation.
The dating app’s Passport feature, which is typically a paid add-on for Tinder Plus and Gold subscribers, allows users to search by city for potential matches. However, Tinder staff decided to make the feature free as the world deals with the impacts of COVID-19.
“In these trying times, while we all know we need to stay home, this doesn’t mean we have to be alone with our thoughts. Having someone to talk to can make a world of difference,” a statement reads.
The passport feature is free to everyone everywhere and will be available through April 30th.
“Our hope is that you use the Passport feature to virtually transport yourself out of self-quarantine to anywhere in the world. You can check in on folks in their hometown, college town, or sister city, and find those across the world who are going through the same things. If nothing else, you can learn how to say ‘hey’ in another language.”
There’s no limit on how many cities you can visit with the passport feature. While you can only virtually be in one city at a time, you can change your location as many times as you’d like.
People you’ve liked while using the Passport feature may see your profile up to 24 hours after you’ve changed your location, according to Tinder.
