Why Does Tinder Need My Email (How Tinder Handles Your Data)

Have you ever wondered why Tinder needs your email and what they do with it? It seems like any time you fill out a form these days there are always the same blocks to fill.

Tinder requires your email for two main reasons. First, many companies use this as a way to validate you only have one account. Secondly, they use this for contact purposes which a majority is them trying to sell you upgrades or additional services.

This can be seen as problematic for a few reasons. In this day and age, it is not uncommon to have access to multiple email addresses. This tactic will not stop someone from creating more than one account.

Also, it’s not fair to be spammed with marketing emails just for the privilege or using a service. Luckly you can opt out of these emails with little effort.
