For example, Tinder makes all encrypted requests over HTTPS, except to serve images.
This means that someone monitoring network traffic can see the photos of all the Tinder profiles someone is viewing on the network or even introduce false pictures to the user’s feed.
After the allegations, OKCupid said they ceased to do it.
Now think about Grindr, a majority gay men dating app with 3.3 million users, that also includes trans, bisexual and queer people.
All the information you give dating apps is shared with Match Group, Inc.
The information requested, or that you deliver voluntarily to build up your profile, includes: HIV status or “last tested date”, unprotected sex choices and sexual preferences (top, bottom, etc), personal picture, display name, relationship status, ethnicity, age or date of birth, geo-location data (this feature has been turned off in order to protect users in some extremely homophobic countries like Russia ), email address, height, weight, social network links, “Looking For”, “About Me”, “Favorites”, “Blocks”, “Tribes” and more.
Regardless of whether a user quits or deletes the app, all this sensitive information could still be retained by Match Group and any affiliates they’ve already shared it with.
In addition, if the connection is insecure, we can also capture which data points are being shared.
If you pay for any additional services or click on ads that appear in the app, you are also giving away your financial information, which is collected by tracking technologies.
If you log in with your Facebook account, another chunk of data is taken from there, like your public profile, email address, “likes”, birthday, relationship interests, current city, photos, personal description, friend list, and information about your Facebook friends who might be common Facebook friends with other Tinder users (that’s why you may sometimes find that Facebook suggests friends who are people you’ve met in dating platforms).
This includes: all chat conversations (time of day, length, and with whom), as well as information that is mandatory or that we decide to provide to enrich our profile, such as sexual preference, the age range we like to match with as well as the ethnic origin, educational level, political views, music and food tastes, pictures, videos and user location (or various locations).
Tinder also knows which kind of people are interested in you.
