The dating app has announced it is adding new safety features.

One, is a panic button users can hit in case something goes wrong during a date. Emergency dispatch will be called to the location.

Also, users can also check-in to let friends know where they are. The free tools can be found in a new section of the app called the safety center.

They should be available starting next week.

Match, the dating conglomerate that owns Tinder, will roll out the new tools to OkCupid, Hinge and the flagship Match.com later this year.
