According to their website, every 14 minutes someone finds love on eHarmony. Every 14 minutes, people! This is curious because while you can sign up to eHarmony for free, you can't view pictures or do much more without paying for the premium features. And the shortest subscription you can get with eHarmony is for six months. Maybe someone finds love on eHarmony every 14 minutes, after spending six months looking? Launched in 2000, eHarmony has been around the online dating game for a while and today is targeted more towards serious matchmaking than casual hookups. They have really leaned into the use of artificial intelligence to help people find love, for better or worse. They even analyze your chats and online behavior to send suggestions to help you meet the 'right' people, at the 'right' time. Nothing creepy about that, right?

¿Qué podría pasar si algo falla?

eHarmony seems to be one the better mainstream dating app when it comes to privacy and security. Unfortunately, that's not saying a whole lot. eHarmony is targeted at serious people seeking long-term relationships, and it's no small commitment to sign up. Users must complete personality tests and compatibility quizzes and provide a whole lot of detailed personal information when they sign-up, including yearly income, number of children, and ethnicity. All this data and more--things like what types of profiles you spend the most time on and what sorts of photos you upload-- is used by eHarmony and their artificial intelligence algorithms to match you to the people they think will be right for you. Could there be bias in their algorithms keeping you from seeing certain types of people? It seems plausible given they ask people to provide information like ethnicity, religion, and personal values. The good thing is, eHarmony has a pretty decent track record of protecting all the personal information they collect on their users. They did have a couple of data breaches back in 2011 and 2012, but have since seemed to tighten their security. They do use some of this personal data to target you with lots of advertisements and perhaps shares some with third parties for the same. We will also add, eHarmony has one of the worst written privacy policies we've seen. Not only does it have spelling and grammar mistakes, but also at one point refers to the wrong company. Which begs the question, would you trust your sensitive data to a dating app that can't even write their own privacy policy error free? We wouldn't.

eHarmony's privacy policy is pretty poorly written. Not only does it have spelling and grammar mistakes, but also at some point refers to 'Parship' rather than 'eharmony'.

¿El producto usa IA? Información

Researching eHarmony and AI yielded a number of articles, including on the different ways eharmony uses AI to increase matches, analyzing people's chat and online behavior to send suggestions. Also, eHarmony collaborates with research institutes on the intersection of AI and love. This is all very good. There still is a lack of transparency into how eHarmony's AI works and whether it could potentially inject bias into matches.
