On platforms such as Instagram or Twitter, getting verified and getting the blue tick marks means that this profile belongs to an important public figure, however, on Tinder, getting verified means that you are a real person and the tick mark is a means of distinguishing real and verified users from the non-verified ones.
Photo verification is a feature that allows you to authenticate and verify yourself on Tinder to declare that you are who you say you are. So, when you are verifying yourself on Tinder then you are actually making all the other users know who visit your profile to know that this person is real.
Some people might say that this verification and blue tick don’t make any sense since anyone can get the verification badge and blue tick mark, however, they are not aware that dating apps like Tinder are full of catfishers who are using fake identities and photos to trick potential dates. So, if you have got a verified profile along with the blue tick mark then chances are that potential matches are going to trust you more than non-verified users.
This feature of verification on Tinder is very useful since catfishers and scammers on the app have increased very much in the past few years and it helps to distinguish between real users and fake ones. If you have successfully verified yourself on the app, other users and potential dates are going to trust you more, and likewise, you will also trust those matches that are verified on Tinder than non-verified ones.
