Ever swiped through Tinder and been greeted by a celebrity's photo? You've probably just sent it to the left and dismissed it as a spam account. But the rich and famous are out there looking for matches just like everyone else, and now the company is giving them a way to let everyone know their profile is legitimate. Tinder has officially launched verified profiles today, and just like on Twitter and Facebook, you'll now see a badge attached to high-profile users that designates they're exactly who they say they are.
Tinder says verified accounts are available to "notable public figures, celebrities, and athletes." The new feature has been a long time coming and follows a significant redesign of Tinder profiles that added built-in Instagram support.
