Verified Tinder Accounts Let You Know If You Actually Match With Celebs

by Adam Pliskin

Everybody, even celebrities, is on Tinder these days.

Now, you'll be able to tell if the person you're chatting with is, in fact, the famous person he or she claims to be.

That's because Tinder is introducing verified accounts to its dating app.

From here on out, if a name has a blue checkmark next to it, that person was vetted by Tinder and is indeed some sort of public figure.

It's unclear how the verification process works, but a post on Tinder's blog reads,

Starting today, you may see a verified symbol on some profiles. Now when notable public figures, celebrities and athletes appear in your recommendations, you'll know it's for real.

There is a slim chance you'll match with someone like Hilary Duff on the dating app, but if you do, you'll know she's the real deal.
