If you're on Tinder, this might be some good news for you.

Tinder will soon allow everyday users conduct background checks on their matches.

According to Yahoo News, the new change that is reportedly coming very soon to all users, which will include information such as a potential match’s arrest record, restraining orders, history of violence, convictions and more.

The dating application teamed up Garbo, a non-profit background check platform, which provides information about violence and abuse.

“Before Garbo, abusers were able to hide behind expensive, hard-to-find public records and reports of their violence; now that’s much harder,” Garbo CEO and Founder Kathryn Kosmides said. “Being able to reach historically underserved populations is fundamental to Garbo’s mission and the partnership with Match will help us connect these communities.”

The Tinder background check update will be available later this year.
