Tinder Is Working On A Panic Button

Shouldn't it be a warning sign that your app needs a panic button? Also, this sure seems like a lot of steps for a "panic button" doesn't it?

If a date turns ugly, users will be able to trigger an alarm via the Noonight tool within the Tinder app. They'll then be instructed to enter a code. If they don't, they'll receive a text from one of Noonlight's dispatchers. If they don't respond to that message, Noonlight will call them, and if there's no answer, or the user confirms that they need help, Noonlight will get in touch with police.
