Mobile Mobile Apps Phones Tinder is trying to make its app safer for LGBTQ+ users. Thomas Trutschel / Getty Images To better ensure the safety of its LGBTQ+ users when traveling, Tinder is adding a new feature — the Traveler Alert — to its iOS and Android apps in the coming days. Users who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer will get a warning message when they open the app in a country that criminalizes same-sex status. “Based on your geographical location, it appears you’re in a place where the LGBTQ community may be penalized. We want you to have fun, but your safety is our #1 priority,” the Traveler alert says. “Please proceed with caution and take extra care when making new matches and meeting with people you do not know.” From there, users can choose to be hidden on Tinder or show themselves while in one of the countries. Tinder said that if a user chooses to be shown on TInder and has added sexual orientation or gender identity to their profile, that information won’t display until they leave the area. Users will also get a Traveler Alert if they’re using Tinder Passport. Tinder didn’t immediately respond to a request for further comment.Tinder pointed out in a blog post that there are almost 70 countries with laws that penalize the LGBTQ+ community, despite progressive steps in other countries.

The talented 4-y-o filly, PUDDY POOH, should upstage her six opponents and win the 3-y-o and up open allowance feature over the straight-five course at Caymanas Park today.When last raced on February 20, the Richard Azan-trained PUDDY POOH, who won the 1000 Guineas as a 3-y-o last season, found the champion sprinter POKER STAR too hot to handle in the season’s first grade-one race, the Eileen Cliggott Memorial Trophy over 1300 metres. But in all fairness, she was not disgraced in finishing 6 1/2 lengths fifth after missing the break.Before that on December 5, PUDDY POOH romped the Betting and Gaming Stakes Trophy over 1400 metres, covering the distance in the smart time of 1:23.4 behind fast splits of 22.0 and 45.0 for the half-mile.Having worked well in preparation for today’s encounter and dropping down in class as well, PUDDY POOH will prove hard to beat with a mere 50.0kg, inclusive of apprentice Odean Edwards’ 3.0kg claiming allowance.The bay filly by Adore The Gold out of Shahar can expect worthwhile competition from the speedy four-year-old colts, ROYAL ASSAULT and SMOKEY TOPAZ, but she apparently has a bit more class than either and should rebound with a win under these favourable conditions.Elsewhere on the 10-race programme, champion trainer Wayne DaCosta holds the key to the opening race (non-winners of three) over the straight with the consistent SILVER CLOUD and speedy DRIPPING IN GOLD.While the latter is expected to lead the seven-horse field, his recent form is not as appealing as the grey SILVER CLOUD, who gets the nod under four-time champion Omar Walker.I also like MACALLAN to win the second race over 1100 metres for maiden three-year-olds, BIG DATA to do likewise in division two, as well as QUEEN OF THE TOWN in the fifth, GIRSHOM in the seventh and the fleet-footed FIRE ALARM under leading jockey Dane Nelson in the eighth race over the straight.
