WASHINGTON, March 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Blyss Dating – Bring Life to Your Soul Search – a free dating app for Washington-based college students and young adults now in pre-registration launches Summer 2022. The revolutionary dating app offers a three-type dating structure and user-specific safety features aimed at preventing scams, such as the one illustrated in The Tinder Swindler, a popular true-crime documentary on Netflix.
According to Blyss Co-founder, Stanford Maison, “News of The Tinder Swindler was a real wake-up call for the industry, and the film exposed vulnerabilities across existing dating platforms.” In the film, Simon Leviev (Shimon Hayut) uses Tinder to perpetrate a Ponzi scheme swindling an estimated $10 million from people across the globe. Maison continues, “User safety is our highest priority, and Blyss demonstrates this through numerous features to ensure protection, confidentiality, and integrity.”
Blyss utilizes mandatory facial recognition to prevent “catfishing” (creation of a fictional online persona), and offers a “trusted friend” feature prompting users to notify a trusted contact of their whereabouts before their date begins. Additionally, Blyss includes a “safe-word” feature which, when activated in an emergency, results in real-time support by the Blyss team. “We’re continuously looking for ways to raise the level of safety offered on Blyss,” said Maison, “and that’s something other dating apps are unable to do,” he added.
