New Website Means Trouble for Cheaters on Tinder
For $5, you can now find out if your partner is Tindering behind your back.
If you suspect your partner could be cheating, there's a new website that wants to help you find out. Swipe Buster (formerly Tinder Buster) allows users to see if their significant other, or ANYONE for that matter, is actively using Tinder. You enter the person's age, first name, gender, and where you believe they last used the app. Then the site users Tinder's A.P.I. to find people who fit that criteria, and you can view their photos, when they last logged on, and the gender they are seeking.
What's the catch? Well, it costs $5. It seems kind of skeezy to charge money for this sort of thing, but I guess you have to make money somehow.
The website was created by an anonymous software marketing employee, but he says that cheating isn't the main focus of this website. Swipe Buster is meant to teach a lesson to people about how much of their personal information is actually out there. He says:
“There is too much data about people that people themselves don’t know is available. Not only are people oversharing and putting out a lot of information about themselves, but companies are also not doing enough to let people know they’re doing it.”
The goal is to educate the public on this issue, and also for Tinder to make their data private instead of public. Tinder has been criticized before for facilitating cheating, so it will be interesting to see how they respond.
