Tinder’s parent company, Match Group, is going after one of its main competitors, Bumble.

This includes the “undo” button, a feature that they say is “nearly, if not literally, identical” to Bumble’s “backtrack” option which lets users go back if they accidentally swiped the wrong way on a person.
