If you also use dating apps, then be careful!

JAN 23 (WTN) - In this era of technology, you cannot keep yourself away from the smartphone. Actually, the mobile phone has become one of the biggest needs today. Every important work that you had to do earlier in the queues and you have to waste your precious time, nowadays the same work gets online on mobile phones. But it is also true that in this world of technology, humans have started feeling a little more lonely than before.
 
In the modern busy life, the common man does not have time for himself so it is difficult to have time for his relatives and friends. In such a situation, people are using dating apps in search of partners in running life. According to a survey, the use of dating apps in India is increasing rapidly. The culture of finding a partner through dating apps is gradually being liked by the Indian people. But if you also use dating apps, or you are thinking of using dating apps, then for your information, let us know that it is being claimed that the users’ data in the dating apps are at risk.
 
In dating apps, the data of the users are in danger, after reading this you must have been in thought and you will also feel scared. In fact, these days the dating apps popular among users are at risk of users' data in apps like Tinder, Grindr, and OkCupid. For your information, let us know that the Norwegian Consumer Council claims that the personal information of users on these apps is being shared with advertising technology companies. Not only this, but the report also claims that apps like the Period tracker app and Virtual makeup app Perfect 365 are also sharing users' personal data with advertising companies.
 
According to this report, sharing personal data of users from dating apps with other companies is a violation of European data privacy law, but dating apps are still doing so. Let you know that the Norwegian Consumer Council is a nonprofit group with the help of the government. According to the council, online advertising companies are tracking the profile of smartphone users. The Norwegian council, after studying 10 Android apps in collaboration with Mnemonic, a cybersecurity company, has claimed that these apps are sharing their data with 135 different third-party advertising companies.
 
According to the Council, as per the rules, this entire situation is out of control. The council has appealed to European regulators to apply strict General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) law by taking cognizance of this when dating apps share personal information of users to advertising companies. Indeed, privacy has been a major and sensitive issue in the countries of Europe. Companies making apps there are strongly instructed that their privacy should not be violated through their apps, and apps will not share personal data of users with anyone.
 
By the way, we also advise you to know the complete information about the app before downloading it in your smartphone. Also while downloading the app, please read the terms and conditions of the app. While downloading any app in the smartphone, many types of access are demanded by the app; in this case, you should keep in mind what access is being taken by the app. At the same time, keep checking from time to time what the image and report in the technology world of the app that you have downloaded. If you have taken carelessness then such apps may keep sharing your personal data with a company and you do not know it.
