Wait, Tinder allowed minors on the app?

Next time you swipe right on Tinder, rest assured you’re not swiping on a random youngin’ barely old enough to see an R-rated movie.

Because moving forward, Tinder is changing its current policy, which allowed for minors aged 13-17 to connect with their own peer bracket in a special 'minors only' pool. But seriously, who knew Tinder even allowed minors?

According to TechCrunch, the site's VP of Communications has put the kibosh on minors using the app.    

“On a platform that has facilitated over 11 billion connections, we have the responsibility of constantly assessing our different user experiences," he says. "Consistent with this responsibility, we have decided to discontinue service for under 18 users. We believe this is the best policy moving forward. This change will take effect next week.”

Considering that minors only make up roughly 3 percent of Tinder’s global user base, it’s probably in the best interest of the company to disregard creating nubile teen romances to focus on the promising relationships of lonely, self-deprecating young adults who are looking for a hookup instead.
