Key Facts

  • The update, announced Wednesday, comes a year after Match Group shared news of an investment in Garbo, putting seven-figures into the organization with the intention of helping build out its service and making it accessible to its users.
  • Kosmides said individuals who seek out Garbo will likely come from one of two buckets: “They’re either a cautious person and searching everyone, or they have a gut feeling about someone,” she said, adding she hopes to eventually make the platform more robust over time to incorporate other relevant types of records.
  • In a conversation with CNN Business last year, ahead of the Garbo investment, Breeden said that in joining the dating industry, she “saw a need for people to be able to access information.”
  • (In response to that article, a Match Group spokesperson said the company doesn’t collect enough information about users to conduct screenings.) Asked by CNN Business why Tinder doesn’t directly leverage the information from Garbo to first clean up its platform rather than putting the onus on individuals to do the work, Breeden said the company may not have the relevant information about users to conduct the searches.
