Tinder Privacy Policy

Tinder is a popular dating app mobile app that uses your mobile device’s location along with other pieces of information from your profile to help you find matches in your area. Basically, it allows users to “swipe right” for profiles they like and “swipe left” for the ones they dislike. If both parties swipe right, they both can chat and even meet up.

The app makes being single more fun and has the potential to help you find the ONE, but it also collects more information about you than you may know, including:

  • Basic information, such as your name, physical address, telephone number, and email address.
  • Your account information for Facebook, provided that you have signed up for Tinder using Facebook.
  • Your location whenever you use the Tinder app.
