Dating app users over 50 are prime targets for scam artists. See how one dating app is fighting back.

Dating app Lumen is exclusively reserved for people over 50 years old. Problem is, there are lots of scam artists who target this older demographic.

We talked Charly Lester, co-founder of the dating app Lumen, about some of the ways the app is protecting its users with artificial intelligence.
