ANDROID DATING APP SECURITY INDEX

Hooray! You’re not the only bundle of insecurities this Valentine’s Day! Our 2nd Annual Dating App Security Index is here to expose insecurities in well known dating apps…

  • We stripped down five dating apps to their skin and bones and pointed out all of their flaws.
  • Back-end databases, profile information, user credentials, and proprietary source code all laid out before our wanting eyes.
  • Wondering how your new lover knows all the answers to your profile survey questions? We know why!

If you are a single, thirty-something year old wanting to protect your embarrassing profile information, an executive concerned with the security of your mobile app, or just someone that likes seeing things exposed on Valentine’s Day, then you’ve come to the right place. Our Dating App Security Index shows you how even top dating brands are missing simple security measures in their mobile apps.

We are here to let you know about a new kind of protection never mentioned in that awkward talk you had with your father once. Keep yourself and your consumers safe this Valentine’s Day and download the report below.

What’s Under the Covers (and New for 2015)

The Dating App Security Index includes apps from top dating companies that are a bit soft in the mobile app security standards and best practices.

eHarmony completely redid their Android app recently but the username and password are still exposed.  For the second year in a row we’ve been able recover someone’s username and password on Match.com.
Godfrey Nolan, President of RIIS LLC said “We’re trying to make the world a safer place, one dating app at a time.” He added, “App developers don’t realize that the hacker tools are changing, what we couldn’t find last year we can now find using new tools like jadx.”
