Dating for 14 year olds
When you set up a profile, Tinder automatically takes information based on your Facebook profile, including photos, date of birth and sex.Once your profile is set up, Tinder will then provide you with a list of relevant matches based on your profile, interests, mutual friends on Facebook, location, sex and selected age range.
The app uses your information from Facebook including date of birth to verify your age. Users aged between 13 and 17 can see only other Tinder users within the same age group.
To ensure your teen is safe, discuss the dangers of selecting a narrow location base on Tinder i.e. Remind children not to share images of themselves that give away information about where they live or the places they hang out.
Online Predators With most social networks there are risks of online predators and Tinder is no different.
Parents should be aware, however, that there are fake profiles on Facebook and it is very easy for people to pretend to be someone else.
It’s possible that your teen might end up matching with a person who is much older than he/she says he/she is! Tinder for teens works in the same way the adult app does, however it separates the two communities.
