Dating for under 18
What's not: While it's cool to see that your crush at school is also on the app, you may also pass a creepy guy on the street who is a user.
Meaning, if you're 1 to 850ft away from a user, you will get access to their profile and vice versa.
This means, if someone else in school, at your gym, or anywhere else you hang out, is also using the app, you'll know.
Also, while the app is free, some features are only accessible with a premium account, which costs $9.99 a month.
