The popular dating app Tinder is launching a verification program for celebrities so they can join in on the swipe and date fun.

The app presents users with a profile picture, first name, and age. Users then have the choice to swipe left to "reject" and the right to "like" a person. If two people "like" each other, the app announces a match and lets the users chat with each other.

The CEO of Tinder claims this function makes the app perfect for celebrities.

"[Tinder] gives them the control to filter through the noise and communicate with people they want to know." said CEO Sean Rad.

Lindsay Lohan has mentioned interest in the app but that was before her list of celebrity lovers was published.
