Online and mobile dating face privacy, safety concern

March 31, 2014

"We entrust some incredibly sensitive information to online dating sites," says Rainey Reitman of the San Francisco, Calif.-based Electronic Frontier Foundation, a nonprofit that advocates for user privacy amid technology development. "People don't realize how much information they're exposing even by doing something as slight as uploading a photograph."

She adds, "Many online apps are very cavalier about collecting that information and perhaps exposing it in a way that would make you uncomfortable."
