New iOS App 'Do I Date' Promises To Be A "TripAdvisor For People"

Reviews

For restaurant reviews, you turn to Yelp. For travel reviews, you turn to TripAdvisor. And if a new app plays its cards right, you could soon be turning to it to review your dates.

Do I Date boldly dubs itself “the essential pre-dating discovery experience.” Founded by Terry Amsbury and Jamie Forsyth, the app aims to become a ratings hub for singles where users can review and share their dating adventures (and misadventures) for the benefit of others. The lofty long-term goal, as Amsbury explained to the London Evening Standard, is to “be the most honest dating app out there.”

Forsyth and Amsbury were struck by inspiration after hearing female friends discuss their split opinions on receiving explicit pictures from male dates. Some were pro, some were con, and the future founders had a revelation: wouldn’t it be great if you knew what you were getting into ahead of time?

Bumble Makes Dating Profiles More Stalkable With Instagram Integration

Bumble is starting 2018 with another power move in its quest for global dating app domination. The female-focused app announced on January 23 that Bumble profiles would now support Instagram integration, allowing potential matches to scroll through each other’s photo feeds.

To activate the feature, simple visit the Edit Profile menu, select the “Connect Your Instagram” option, and grant Bumble access to your Instagram profile. Once approval is granted, your 24 most recent Insta-snaps will be displayed at the bottom of your Bumble profile.

The option is currently available for both Android and iOS, but only for Bumble Date and Bumble BFF. Instagram integration is not offered - at least not yet - for Bumble Bizz users.

Could Hackers Spy on Your Tinder Account?

The next time you swipe right on a Tinder match when you’re sitting at a bar, consider that hackers might be taking notes.

Website MarketWatch reported that vulnerabilities were found in the popular app, exposing users to hackers. The vulnerability stems from Tinder not using encryption on users’ photos. Instead, they use a basic HTTP, an unsecure older protocol, rather than HTTPS. This means when you swipe, hackers have the ability to see not only profiles, but the actions you take with swiping, super-liking, and rejecting photos as well. Think of it as someone looking over your shoulder as you’re swiping.

Tech Times reported that users aren’t at risk of spies seeing their actions when they are swiping at home over a private Internet connection, but they are when using public WiFi networks.

2018 is off to a rough start for eHarmony. Shortly after one of the company’s advertisements was banned in the UK for being “misleading” comes the news that the popular dating website has taken another hit - one that will cost them more than $2 million.

Last month, eHarmony settled a consumer protection lawsuit in California, agreeing to pay $1.28 million to four counties - Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Shasta, Napa - and the city of Santa Monica.

The complaint against eHarmony alleged that the company failed to sufficiently explain its subscription fee policy, leading to unexpected charges for consumers. The complaint further alleged that eHarmony did not provide a contract explaining the service, nor did it explain the cancellation procedure as required by law.
