He said: ‘We have always promoted an honest dating space for people who are looking to form relationships rather than find casual hook-ups
But one dating app is attempting to combat this, by introducing a filter that prevents users from sending nude pictures – so, even if you end up really liking each other and fancy taking the conversation to the next level, you're going to have to do that in the privacy of your own text messages.
Every photo uploaded to the website is pushed through a filter that detects both face and nudity. The filter then goes on to score the picture and will reject it if it detects a certain level of nudity – such as the showing of genitalia.
Matt Verity, co-founder of said he was inspired to place the filter on the app after finding that the majority of online daters wanted ‘penis shots and gratuitous body flashing shots to be a thing of the Travel dating online past'.
We don't want to take the fun out of dating, just bring some decorum back! Once users are chatting through private messages, it is up to them what they send, of course.'
Alongside the prevention of nude photos, the app is also attempting to stop people from embellishing on their profiles. This includes lying about relationships, age and career.
The app uses revolutionary ID software as used by secure websites such as Airbnb and airlines such as Easyjet to check profiles and the legitimacy behind them, making the app one of the most secure dating apps available.
There are over seven million UK users registered on dating sites and crimes associated with online dating have risen by 450% in the past five years, yet amazingly, up until now, the security measures have remained unchanged.
The new security measures employed are multi-fold and are somewhat flexible, so users can decide the level of protection they are comfortable with.
But users will really have to work on their profiles if they want to appeal to other users. And to do so, they just need to share honest information on the app. The more honest the information, the higher the user is ranked on the app, leading the user to earn ‘trust points'.
Dating app Trueview has included a unique nudity filter in their new app launch that prevents users from uploading or sending inappropriate pics to other users or to their own profiles
An entry-level trust score would mean at least three photos and a basic bio, which is created through the app's profile builder, which is designed to express the user's personality.
The more information you divulge, the higher your trust score, so by linking your social media accounts (which are also screened to check they aren't fake) or by using TrueView's ID verification technology, you will go up in ranking.
The filtration system works whereby people with a low score won't have access to those high up on the trust score ranking, while users with a high score can set their confidence parameters to whatever they are comfortable with, much like you would with age preferences.
Matt said: ‘TrueView have been in online dating for the last 4 years and we have stood by our mission to increase awareness and improve the overall security levels of online dating.
‘We feel the new TrueView app delivers on this and more. Online dating app users are tired of interacting with people are at best not serious about dating and at worst, lying about themselves.
‘For the first time, here is a dating app that truly addresses the issue and takes security to another level, as it should be.'
