No more nude pics please – we’re British!
Revolutionary British dating app, TRUEVIEW, have included a unique nudity filter in their new app launch. The filter prevents users from uploading ‘inappropriate’ shots to their profile. Every photo that is uploaded onto the website is pushed through a filter that detects face and nudity. It then scores the picture and will reject if it detects a certain level of nudity.
Matt Verity, co-founder of TRUEVIEW 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.”
The filter is just one of a series of measures that the innovative dating app has introduced to combat a series of security issues they have pinpointed as the most problematic in online dating. The most extensive change is the addition of the revolutionary ID software, as used by secure websites such as Airbnb and airlines such as Easyjet. It has made the app the most secure dating app available.
There are over seven million UK users registered on dating sites and crimes associated with online dating have risen by 450% in the past five years, yet amazingly, up until now, the security measures have remained unchanged.
The new security measures employed are multi-fold and are somewhat flexible, so users can decide the level of security they are comfortable with. Users are ranked on the app according to ‘trust points’, which they can earn by sharing information with the app. An entry-level trust score would mean at least three photos and a basic bio, which is created through the app’s profile builder, designed to express the user’s personality. The more information you divulge, the higher your trust score, so by linking your social media accounts (which are also screened to check they aren’t fake) or by using TrueView’s ID verification technology, you will go up in ranking. The filtration system works whereby people with a low score won’t have access to those high up on the trust score ranking, while users with a high score can set their trust parameters to whatever they are comfortable with, much like you would with age preferences.
Matt Verity said: “TrueView have been in online dating for the last 4 years and we have stood by our mission to increase awareness and improve the overall security levels of online dating. We feel the new TrueView app delivers on this and more. Online dating app users are tired of interacting with people are at best not serious about dating and at worst, lying about themselves. For the first time, here is a dating app that truly addresses the issue and takes security to another level, as it should be.”
