Uninstall Tinder! The Stalking App For Psychopaths – You Could Be An Unsuspecting Victim.
Are you a Tinder user? If so, you might want to reconsider the use of this application. Several state authorities have issued warnings about Tinder.
Apparently murderers, rapists, and thieves have rushed out to download this app to their phone that allows you to be tracked through your GPS settings.
This app allows users to track each other’s real-time location, a loophole which anyone capable of basic programming could exploit.
Tinder is a dating app that uses your real-time geo-location data to connect with other users nearby. The vulnerability in the app allows a user to track the exact location of another user while the app is running.
Even when the app is closed, a user could still be tracked to the last place where they used Tinder. This is exactly what is now happening in Philadelphia and the police are on the hunt for serial rapists.
According to Philadelphia’s ABC news affiliate, police are on the lookout for two men that have been accused of assaulting victims through this GPS dating app, and have left several women and men scarred for life.
The victims were raped, robbed and left for dead. If you communicate with anybody on Tinder, now they know your name and your exact location. You are now a prime target for an assault.
Philadelphia is not the only state where these criminals are taking advantage of people. There have been reports in 22 additional states across the country with these exact type of assaults. Most of these assaults are happening at the residence of the users, as lonely people stay up late at night just looking for somebody to talk to.
And if you are a parent, you might want to check your son or daughters phones as well for these apps as well.
According to reports 76% of Tinder, Tango and Kik users are teenagers. Putting not only themselves, but their entire family at risk.
If you have Tinder, Tango, Kik or any other GPS location device on your phone, UNINSTALL IT NOW! Your life could depend on it.
