Tinder has released a Block Contacts Feature that allows users to block phone contact lists from the dating app, allowing them to use it freely. Users can now dodge their exes, friends, coworkers, relatives, or anyone else with whom they may have an embarrassing encounter. People may now start blocking their personal phone contacts on Tinder after the company made the official announcement on Saturday.

According to a recent survey conducted by Tinder, more than 40% of users have met an ex-partner. About 24% have viewed a family friend or coworker’s profile, and 1 in 10 has observed their professor’s profile. 78 percent of those surveyed said they would rather not see or be seen by such connections over an app.

The Block Contacts option on Tinder will allow users to block personal contacts within the app. “It will empower users to confidently Like their way to sparking new connections while avoiding the awkwardness of a familiar face they would rather not see.” according to the company.

How to Block a Contact on Tinder?

According to a report published in The Verge, those looking for a partner may access the feature through their settings, where they’ll discover the Block Contacts menu, where they can select which contacts they’d like to block, meaning they won’t appear for them, and vice versa.

Users can also choose to upload their whole contact list to Tinder or add people one by one. According to the dating application, no contacts will be collected except those that are blocked. Also, the users can unblock or remove their contacts list at any moment.

Furthermore, blocked contacts will be unaware of the action. This change was made as a precaution because there is no practical way to tell if an ex or someone with whom the user does not want to contact further has a Tinder account. However, if a blocked person joins Tinder with a different phone number, their account may still be visible.
