Facebook wanted to fix its privacy woes-but it broke Tinder instead

Share

But users on Wednesday were stuck in purgatory, with the app failing to transition from Facebook authentication to Tinder swiping. An error message entitled "Facebook Permissions" appeared, requesting users provide more Facebook permissions to use their Tinder account. The only option was to press "Ask Me", but that sent users back to another dialogue box asking them to log in once again.

Tinder is moving into the next big phase of narcissism with its first video-based feature being tested with iOS users in Canada and Sweden.

Around three hours later, Tinder confirmed the issue had been resolved. The company apologized "for the inconvenience" and promised to get the app back "soon".

"This was part of the changes that we announced today, and we are working with Tinder to address this issue", a Facebook spokesperson told CNN Tech.

It seems other services, like Bumble (the only one anyone in the office is actually using at the moment, the loved-up psychopaths) is still functioning fine through the Facebook login.

But wait, you say - how could Facebook possibly affect my Tinder account?

Facebook has been rolling out more security and data privacy updates ever since it was hit by Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal in which millions of users had their data improperly shared with the UK-based data mining firm.

Tinder were interested in becoming United's sleeve sponsor last summer, as revealed in Sportsmail's Sports Agenda column, but have opted for a general agreement with City instead. While this helped individuals find friends, Facebook said businesses that had phone or email information on customers were able to collect profile information this way.

Many users were receiving a message stating, "Tinder requires you provide additional Facebook permissions in order to use a Tinder account".

Among the changes, he said that Facebook will no longer allow apps to ask for access to personal information such as religious or political views, relationship status and details or education and work history.
