Favorites and safety
When someone ads you to their favorites, you cannot find out, unless you pay I believe, but this is a MAJOR safety issue.
Being a victim of rape and abuse, there are some of these psychopaths that have done harrassment in the past. I've had to change numbers, address etc because I had to make sure they wouldn't find me and I'll spare you the worst parts of all of this.... But now, what is really scary is if I use this app, there is
No way for me to allow only verified profiles to talk to me (or even only verified to see me).
Using this app is potentially like giving a GPS to me directly to people whom I try and stay safe from, without ever knowing if they are tracking me. (If they add me to their favorites, there is no way for me to know, to block them, to view or anything. And they could open ghost profiles to do so, it becomes a stalking app, and I am 100% sure they have used it this way at some point to cause me harm again (because they have, I will tell you more after all because this needs to be fixed) they lured me through someone, knowing where I was, and I was brought and sequestrated,... I won't tell you more but please fix this. We all enjoy the app, and I know you can't play cop for everyone, but this "little thing" can be a MASSIVE security issue for many. I wish I could get them put in jail, but things like this help them hurt the people they want to hurt, and saves them from repercussions because they are always steps ahead, therefore they can continue their psychopathic ways, this could go very very far. Please fix this. If there is one thing we should get to do is know who we talk to is verified and ESPECIALLY know the people that TRACK us with explore/favorites.
In some countries where people have to deal with things like this more often, where people got killed.... It could maybe help. Some people would maybe choose to only let verified people 's profiles talk to them.
This brings me to mention, you guys say I won't be able to create a new profile if I delete mine (it's often a warning) but I'm certain some others have to delete the profile to rid of psychopathic stalkers. And that's not counting how my identity was used against my will in the past on your app.... Having verified profile, would have stopped these people from causing as much damage. Because I could state in public that my account has been verified since X date.
Also: this could cut down on your costs potentially in the long run.... Having verified photos could mean that future photos will have the same face even if it ages. So some scans and approvals could be simplified in the long run.
