THE SUN.CO.UK - Nov 4 - Crimes involving the apps have risen 2,000% in four years. 50 sex crimes involving dating apps Tinder and Grindr were reported to Scotland Yard in the six months to June. In all, 187 London crimes were linked to the dating apps in the first half of the year.
Mark Brooks: Tinder has experienced explosive growth, so its only natural that the number of Tinder connected and reported crimes rises in unison. All sizable dating apps should have people ready to work with police and assist with reported crimes, and deal quickly with subpoenas. Or they will end up suffering the consequences in the press for not acting swiftly.
