Researchers after analysing a significant number of diverse mobile dating applications, have concluded that most of the major dating applications are vulnerable to simple sniffing attacks, which could reveal very sensitive personal information such as sexual orientation, preferences, e-mails, degree of interaction between users, etc.
people should understand the importance of the site they are visiting and the credibility of that site as well.
With so many options available, users can get lost in their choices and end up spending too much time in just looking for the “perfect” candidate instead of using that time to start a real relationship.
Communication online also lacks the physical attraction aspect that is essential for choosing a potential partner. Online dating has made dating very superficial; the picture on users’ profile may cause someone to match or not match before even getting to know their personalities.
The research results indicated that only 11 apps scored 50 or greater (out of 100) with more than 10,000 reviews from the app store.
