Founded in 2001, this dating app is targeted at Christians looking for other Christians to date. Free to sign up and browse profiles, users must have a subscription to message other users. With around 15 million users worldwide, the app allows users to target specific Christian denominations such as Catholic, Baptist, or Pentecostal, as well as ethnicity as part of their search. Up until 2016, gays and lesbians weren't welcome on the app as searches were limited to "man seeking woman" or "woman seeking man." A non-discrimination lawsuit forced Christian Mingle to add in the "man seeking man" and "woman seeing woman" options although you can't distinguish between gay and lesbian and straight people within the app.

¿Qué podría pasar si algo falla?

Here's a question: Why does the Christian Mingle app need control of the flashlight on your phone? We're sure there's a joke in here somewhere about needing to see the light. We'll refrain from making it. Seriously though, the app asks for control of your phone's flashlight and the ability to disable your lock screen. That just feels a bit creepy. Creepy app permissions aside, Christian Mingle says they don't "sell" your personal information based on a the legal definition of "sell." They aren't clear on how they might otherwise share or exchange your information though. And be warned, if you connect your Facebook account to Christian Mingle they could be collecting a lot of data on you, including your name, profile picture, public Facebook profile, network, gender, username, user ID, age range or birthday, place of work, relationship interests, language, location, country, interests, photos, photos you are tagged in, videos, contacts list, friends lists or followers and other information such as information about Facebook friends you might share in common with other members. Shoot, depending on the site and your privacy settings, they may also post information to your social network. Yikes! Remember, when you connect a social media account like Facebook to Christian Mingle, both Facebook and the Christian Mingle Now potentially collect more information together. That's why we recommend users don't link your dating app to Facebook. What's the worst that could happen? Well, we'd hate to see the app take control of the flashlight on your phone and turn it on in the middle of a date with an SOS warning. That would be awful, as would Christian Mingle collecting a whole bunch of information about you and sharing it around with others without your knowledge.
