Attention: People who lie about height on Tinder... your time is just about up!
Tinder, seemingly aware that a majority of the male users of the app claiming to be over SIX FEET TALL aren't being honest in their dating profiles, is now launching Tinder's HVB - the HEIGHT VERIFICATION BADGE - which will allow users to verify with a badge that they are as tall as they say they are.
Trumpeting the fact "Only 14.5% of the US male population is actually 6' and beyond," Tinder says they'll fight back against "height fishing" by allowing users to upload a photo showing them standing along side of a commercial building. From that photo, an algorithm, probably based on iOS's ability to measure the length and height of objects on demand now with a device's camera. Once Tinder verifies the height, they'll slap that brand new #HVB on the profile, letting members of the preferred sex for dating know that you are indeed as tall as you say you are.

"We're bringing truthfulness to online dating," Tinder said in a post outlining their new fight against what they call "height liars."
Look for the new badge to roll out on the app soon.
