New Dating App Blocks Co-Workers From Viewing Your Profile

rosesIf you’ve ever logged onto Tinder and cringed at the thought of a co-worker seeing you on it, this new app will remedy the situation.

According to The New York Post, a new dating app called The League allows users to log in with their LinkedIn information. Then the app hides profiles from your business contacts and co-workers.

Former Google employee Amanda Bradford says in the piece, “The office doesn’t have to know you’re on the prowl.”

She developed the app and mentions getting that uncomfortable feeling that “everyone and their mother” could see you on other dating apps. So, she created one with an advanced screening algorithm giving people access to view your profile only after they meet your preferences.

It’s currently only available in San Francisco but sounds like it may launch in other cities soon. She adds, “We’re really trying to leverage that into our customer-acquisition strategy.”
