This comes after an awareness campaign from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) put up billboards associating apps like Tinder  and Grindr with catching STI’s.

The new section created by the dating app can locate the nearest place to get tested for STIs and also includes some safe sex tips, like using condoms, talking about your sexual history before you have sex, and getting any appropriate vaccinations.

In a statement, a spokesman for Tinder said:

An important aspect of any healthy relationship – whether formed on Tinder or otherwise — is ensuring sexual health and safety.
