He adds that the bots are currently only affecting U. Common on dating sites, Tinder has had bot problems since 2013, including those that have flirted with users to direct them to webcam sites as well as install games, like knock-off versions of “Clash of Clans.” In other cases, spammers moved to SMS-based attacks after Tinder increased its security measures.
“What makes this particular spam operation unique is that it’s not trying to drive users directly to an adult webcam or dating site overtly, but it’s using the premise of the safety element to convince a user that he should be verified first before they meet,” says Narang.
Reached for comment, a Tinder spokesperson offered the following statement: Tinder will never ask users to verify through a third party website, download link, or app.
Profiles and users promoting any type of third-party verification or requesting personal, financial information and/or payment violate our terms of service, and we have a system in place to remove these profiles from the app.
