Reasons to delete Dating Apps

The Norwegian Consumer Council has found that a number of popular dating apps have been using data supplied y users and sharing it with third-party advertisers.

The report  entitled " Out of Control: How Consumers are exploited by the Online Advertising Industry looked at various apps downloaded by Android users. For instance Grindr might be sharing user's longitude and latitude with dozens of other companies , mainly advertisers. Tinder, allegedly tells third parties about user's genders and the genders they are looking to date .And OkCupid might spill the answers to all those profile questions you have to answer-questions about your drug use and your ethnicity for example-to it'd purported 300 plus partners, per the New York Times.

The terms of service for both Tinder and OkCupid , which are owned by  Match Group , reportedly admit to sharing " some users information with service providers and partners " as well as other Match brands ( like Match.com, PlentyofFish)and , potentially, legal authorities. So therefore , if you have resolved to meet people in real life, 2020 is the year you delete your apps.
