Users also have the option to have this displayed on their profile or not.
In March 2015, Tinder announced the public release of its paid service, Tinder Plus, a feature allowing unlimited matches, whereas the free Tinder app limits the number of right swipes in a 12-hour period.
The site also has verified profiles for public figures, so that celebrities and other public figures can verify they are who they are when using the app.
Instead of swiping right for a profile, the user swipes up.
Analysts also estimated that Tinder had about half a million paid users within its userbase that consisted mostly of free users.
The New York Times wrote that the wide use of Tinder could be attributed not to what Tinder was doing right but to flaws in the models of earlier dating software, which relied on mathematical algorithms to select potential partners.
