For many people, the best part of using a dating app is the day you get to delete it. That sure sign you've found true love and don't need to muck about any more with the fiery hot hell that is dating. Whoo, what a relief! Welcome to Hinge, the dating app designed to be deleted. Hinge wants you to know they've made a relationship app, not a dating or hook up app. What's all this mean? Hinge asks users to provide vitals (neighborhood where you live, gender, height, education, and the like) and what they call virtues, your opinion on things from politics to alcohol and drugs and more, a picture, and an answer to a writing prompt. Then users go forth and use all that profile information to not just look for pictures, but use the prompts as a place to start a conversation. Does Hinge actually work to get you to delete it? It did for American politician Pete Buttigieg, who says he met his husband on Hinge.

Que pourrait-il se passer en cas de problème ?

"We do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information will always remain secure." That's a line from Hinge's privacy policy (and believe us, they aren't the only dating app with something like that in their privacy policy). That line pretty much sums up how you should approach sharing your personal information on dating apps, and online in general, but especially with dating apps as they collect so much more personal information. Hinge asks users to provide their ethnicity and whether or not they have children or want children. They also ask for other personal information like drug use and religion. They do this so they can maybe match you with the best match possible (no telling if the algorithms they use to help match you are biased as there isn't much transparency into how they work). And like so many dating apps, Hinge asks users to connect their Facebook account to sign in to the app. Remember, when you connect a social media account like Facebook to a dating app, both Facebook and the dating app now potentially collect more information together. That's why we recommend users don't link your dating app to Facebook. Finally, Match Group owns Hinge and at least 45 other dating sites like Tinder, OKCupid, and Match.com. When you sign up with one of these dating sites, the Match Group privacy policy states they may share your personal information with any of the other Match Groups sites for what they say are non-commercial limited and critical purposes. That's a lot of personal data you might have thought only going to once place getting shared across multiple dating sites.
