Abstimmungsergebnis: Extrem unheimlich

Launched in 2015, Salams (formerly known as Minder) is a dating app targeted at Muslim men and women looking for other Muslim people to date. Free to sign up and message members who you match with, users have to buy Telegrams, sold in packs of three or ten, to message members they haven't matched with. With around 350,000 users worldwide, the app allows people to target specific Muslim affiliations such as Sunni, Shia, or "Just Muslim" as part of their search. Billed as both a dating and marriage app, Salams does seem to place some priority on privacy, with a blurred photo option and a stealth mode that allows users to choose who can see their profile. A phone number or Facebook account is require to sign up.

Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schiefgeht?

Good for Salams for coming out right at the top of their privacy policy and telling users they never sell your data and they never will. That's nice to see. They also say the strive to be transparent in how they process your data. This one we're a little skeptical about. They allow users to sign in with their Facebook login, yet no where in the privacy policy do they state what information they might be collecting on your from Facebook or vice versa. Remember, when you connect a social media account like Facebook to Salams, both Facebook and Salams may now potentially collect more information together. That's why we recommend users don't link your dating app to Facebook. Still, it's good to remember that Salams collects a lot of personal information on its users, including things like prayer levels, Islamic priorities, and smoking habits. In 2017, a security researcher discovered a vulnerability that could have leaked all a lot of personal information on Salams users. What's the worst that could happen? It can be dangerous for Muslim women to reveal much about their dating and sex lives, so the worst case scenario feels like it could be pretty bad.

Online dating in general, has changed the course of how people find their partners in life, even in the Muslim culture. The rise of fast-paced dating apps has inspired Haroon Mokhtarzada to create Minder, a dating app that primarily caters to the needs of the western Muslim community.
A 'halal' app for dirty fantasies: How 'Tinder for Muslims' is also feeding fetishes far removed from its original intent
First Post
Recently, I was scrolling through Minder — a Tinder-like app for Muslims — when I came across an intriguing profile. The man in question (let’s call him Z) stated in his bio that he was a Ghaziabad-based Hindu in his early 20s, employed as an officer with Indian Railways, and had a “fetish for Muslim girls”.
