    Dating app Plenty of Fish is banning face filters across its platform in a move aimed at deterring users from creating deceptive profiles, NBC News reported.

    In a blog post on Tuesday, the site announced that it was "implementing a face filter ban across the platform" and would begin to remove photos that feature them after a poll found that 75 percent of single people said the use of filters "heavily altered someone's appearance to be deceptive."

    According to Plenty of Fish, which surveyed 2,000 single people in the United States for the poll, 25 percent said they believe potential dates are "pretending to be someone they're not" when they post a photo on their profile with a face filter.
