MUNICH, GERMANY, July 05, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — u2nite once again sets new standards in safe dating. Shortly after Tinder released the news about launching their video chat at the end of June, u2nite is one step ahead and present their first video chat version. The video date feature is the latest move by u2nite to make it easier and safer to meet.
The gay dating app that has become known for it’s secure app concept, which has gained large market shares in countries where being gay is not welcomed or even forbidden, security has been given the highest priority in developing the new video chat. The video chat is end-to-end encrypted, which means the video transmission are intended just for you and the other person – not available for anyone else – secure against hacking and stalking.
Today you might expect that every dating app would be equipped with a video chat but that is not the case. Meeting up in real life is for most very different from hiding behind the normal chat feature. However dating app users attitude changed over night since COVID-19. Facing longer times with social distancing the video chat allows you to connect live from your home with the benefit of the secure environment u2nite provides. A recent survey shows that dating app users with an overwhelming majority of 85% would use video chat due to social distancing and COVID-19.
Reasons for the rapidly increasing popularity of video chat can of cause be many and varied, and certainly come from our FaceTime or WhatsApp behavior. Compared to conventional messaging however, the video chat allows the user to make live social engagements and even easier to establish lasting connections.
Along with the development of the video chat service, u2nite improved the location blur filter to ensure that your geographic location is not traceable. Another security function that catches the eye is the automated “location finder”. It’s integrated geolocation data suggests a public place to meet in the city and shows on the map how to get there. A safe and helpful feature when you travel and visit cities you do not know.
Munich, Germany-based u2nite, founded in 2013, is a pioneer in developing safe app-solutions helping the LGBTQ community to connect and date within the highest security standards available for mobile applications. u2nite operates in Europe, the Americas and Asia.
