Tinder will let users avoid all their exes, friends, colleagues, relatives, and anyone else they might not want to run into on a dating app as the company announced that it will start allowing people to block their phone contacts.

According to The Verge, users can access the feature from their settings, under the Block Contacts menu, where they can define which contact they would like to block, meaning these people will not surface for them, and vice versa.

Users can either upload their full contacts list to Tinder or add them individually. Tinder informed that it will not store everyone’s contacts, only the ones they have chosen to block and people can unblock or disconnect their contacts list at any time.

Blocked contacts will not be notified they have been blocked. If a blocked individual has since changed their phone number and joins Tinder, their account could still surface.

For those who wanted to avoid the possibility of an awkward digital run-in forever, this might, finally, give them a fighting chance at doing so.
