Swipebuster: The New Website That Lets People Detective On Others' Tinder Usage

A new website named Swipebuster promises to reveal Tinder users’ habits - potentially enabling people to discover out if a significant other has been “cheating” using the favorite dating app.

It’s a resource Jenny Dey says she could've used. The LA resident recently broke up with her boyfriend after a companion reported having seen his profile on Tinder.

“It made me question the all relationship. It was heartbreaking,” Dey, who wasn't on Tinder at the time, told ABC News. “I found so many messages between him and other girls.”

“Even though there wasn't any sexual intercourse involved, I do perceive love that's a sign of cheating just because you're looking for something better,” she said.

For $4.95, Swipebuster – which launched this week -- allows users to memorise about their significant other’s Tinder habits.

“All you necessity is someone'south first name, age, and common location. And what'll arrive up ... is when the person latest logged onto Tinder, who they're interested in meeting, and a collection of photographs that they've used on the app,” said Emily Jane Fox, a VanityFair. com writer.

Fox was among the first to attempt out Swipebuster. She and her Vanity Objective colleagues used the site to discover people that they knew were active Tinder users and found Swipebuster’s results to be ninety-nine % accurate.

“We searched about a dozen or so people in a variety of cities ... with the exception of about one very common title in NY City, every single person we were looking for turned up,” she said.

The founder of Swipebuster, who wishes to stay anonymous, told ABC News he created the site to create the public more alert that information shared on Tinder isn't as private as many users may have originally thought. He said he also wants to alert people that some significant others may harbor Tinder secrets.

Tinder has long battled charges that it attracts cheaters. According to some reports, a large no of Tinder users are already in relationships. Tinder disputes this, saying just two % of its users are married.

"As one of the largest social platforms in the world with ten billion connections made in just the latest few years, most people know of at minimum one companion or colleague who's either met their significant other on Tinder or is on currently on Tinder to date, create new friends and create all kinds of meaningful relationships," Tinder told ABC News in a statement. "The searchable information on Swipebuster is public information that Tinder users have on their profiles."

"Number private user information is being made public," the company said. "If you wish to look who'south on Tinder we recommend saving your money and downloading the app for free. Additionally, all user profiles on Tinder are authenticated using public information from Facebook — including first name, age, and mutual friends — which are inalterable to assistance ensure that users are making authentic connections with real people."

As for allegations that Tinder may invite potential cheaters, Tinder told ABC News its app, “is definitely not the space to attempt and meet people if you're intent on concealing your true identity or intentions.”

Dey thinks Swipebuster is a excellent idea. When she does start dating again, she says she’s going to create sure any new boyfriends keep their swiping days behind them.

“If they still have Tinder on their phone, then [they're] still looking and that'south what it translates (as) to me ...,” she said.
