The app won’t allow you to start dating unless you have at least a 30 per cent verification score. For example, I tried to create my account with Gmail id, which gave me only 10 per cent score and I could not log in.

To sum up, the profiles on Tinder are verified; it shows your mutual friends from Facebook and lets you choose people from various town/cities. It’s called the ‘Matchmaking app for singles’ and largely works on matching people based on their interests.

You can edit age range, height, state or city and the app will stick to your preferences by showing people from only that city or state and of that age, height that you choose.
