Tinder has introduced a slew of safety features in recent years, working to improve the wellbeing and comfort of daters. From verification checkmarks to guardrails for preventing scams and inappropriate messages, these tools aim to protect Tinder users in all sorts of ways.

The latest: a tool to share key information with friends and family before meeting up with a date. The feature, in the form of a shareable link, holds metrics about the date, including the person's photo and link to their profile, along with details of the date itself, like the time and location.

"Discussing plans with friends and family is a time-honored dating ritual," Tinder CMO Melissa Hobley explains. "Share My Date streamlines this basic info-sharing so singles can jump right to the exciting part, from figuring out what to wear to prepping conversation topics."

If you want to try the tool out for your next date, here's how to do it.
