Tinder is a location-based social search mobile app and Web application most often used as a dating service, that allows users to use a swiping motion to like (swipe right) or dislike (swipe left) other users, and allows users to chat if both parties like each other (a “match”).

Information available to users is based on pictures, a short biography, and, optionally, a linked Instagram, Facebook or Spotify account.

Tinder originally required access to a Facebook account of the user of Tinder but, as of 2019‑08‑17, it allows users to register using a telephone number and without access to a Facebook account.

The dating app was launched in 2012 within a startup incubator called Hatch Labs, a joint venture of IAC and mobile development firm Xtreme Labs. By 2014, Tinder was registering about one billion “swipes” per day.
