Not sure if you should swipe left or right on Tinder? A new app called NameTag¬†might help make that decision a little easier. Just scan in your potential suitor’s face, and facial recognition software will not only pull up social network information but also run in through the National Sex Offender Registry. It’s the service you never asked for, but might kind of appreciate.

“I believe that this will make online dating and offline social interactions much safer and give us a far better understanding of the people around us,” the app’s cofounder Kevin Alan Tussy told CNET.

You can also scan in a significant other’s face to dig up any dating profiles he or she might be running on the downlow. The future is here and your secrets will never be safe again.
