WATCH OUT- New App Can Tell If You're On Tinder...

If you're a secret Tinder user we've got some awful news for you. Aware that you are probably sweating profusely and having mild heart palpitations right now. Well, you kind of should be because a new website will now allow anyone to find out whether someone they know is using the dating app. It will EVEN tell you when and where they were last online.

The app called Swipe Buster promises to let you find out whether people you know have a Tinder account, all you have to do is pay a $4.99 fee. Swipe Buster works by searching Tinder's database (which you sign up to as part of your terms of use) and will allow you to narrow down Tinder users you might know by first name, age and location. Once you have those details, when you input them on the site you'll be able to see people matching that description who are registered on Tinder's database.

If this does work actually works, it could be the cause of a fair few horrendous break-ups. Addressing this, the Swipe Buster founder (who remains anonymous) has said"There is too much data about people that people themselves don’t know is available. Not only are people oversharing and putting out a lot of information about themselves, but companies are also not doing enough to let people know they’re doing it.”


Aswell as making us aware that Tinder is not as private as we think it is, the CEO of Swipe Buster claims that he was inspired to create the app because; "It struck me that there were so many people not knowing what was going on with the person they care most about. It stuck with me."
