These campaigns may appear convincing, but these threats were not credible as threat actors were unable to provide proof of the compromised photos or videos.
Ridgewood NJ, The owner of massive dating apps Tinder and Match has just announced a new partnership to help keep its users safe. Match Group, which owns Tinder, Match, OK Cupid, Hinge and several other services, has made an investment in Garbo, a non-profit, female-founded background check platform. As part of the deal, Garbo’s platform will be available to people using Match Group apps, starting with Tinder later this year.
