Tinder user? Lack of encryption means stalkers can watch you at it…

Dismiss it as a cheesy idea if you like, but Tinder claims to process 1,600,000,000 swipes a day and to set up 1,000,000 dates a week. At more than 11,000 swipes per date, that means that a lot of data is flowing back and forth between you and Tinder while you search for the right person. You’d therefore like to think that Tinder takes the usual basic precautions to keep all those images secure in transit – both when other people’s images are being sent to you, and yours to other people.
