Tinder will no longer allow minors to use app

Tinder has discontinued use of the popular dating app for anyone under the age of 18.
Until now, the app had allowed everyone above the age of 13 to use the app, but all minors could only be matched with other minors.

Says Tinder: "On a platform that has facilitated over 11 billion connections, we have the responsibility of constantly assessing our different user experiences. 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."

The company said only 3 percent of users were under 18 years of age.
