The Tinder dating app has a new feature to cut online harassment. It uses A.I. to detect and flag up possible abusive language in messages written by the user. After the writer of the message presses 'send', a small box pops up that asks, "Are you sure?" or "AYS?" Tinder hopes AYS will cut the number of abusive messages. When testing the app, the number of such messages fell by 10 per cent. The feature is on English and Japanese versions of the app.

Tinder's app lets users swipe photos and like or dislike profiles of possible love matches. The app matches users, who can then exchange messages and arrange a date. The app has resulted in many finding love, but it has been abused. Tinder hopes AYS will create a safer online environment. It said giving people more options can really change behaviour and build a community, "where everyone feels like they can be themselves".
