Dating apps live on your phone, an infamous agent of relentless pocket surveillance: It makes intuitive sense that they might not be the safest repository for all the sensitive information entrusted to them. With that in mind, the findings from a new report by the Norwegian Consumer Council may not surprise you, but I bet they will unsettle you: A number of popular dating apps have apparently been quietly sponging up your data and sharing it with third-party advertisers. Which apps, you ask? Allegedly, Grindr, Tinder, and OKCupid. Maybe you have heard of them.

The report, entitled “Out of Control: How Consumers Are Exploited by the Online Advertising Industry,” looked at various apps downloaded by Android users, although these apps are also available for iOS. Researchers found that Grindr might be sharing user’s longitude and latitude with dozens of other companies, mainly advertisers. Tinder, meanwhile, allegedly tells third parties about users’ genders and the genders they’re looking to date. And OKCupid might spill the answers to all those profile questions you have to answer — questions about your drug use and your ethnicity, for example — to its purported 300-plus partners, per the New York Times.
