Tinder, Hinge & other dating apps are allegedly turning users into ‘addicts’ (according to lawsuit)

Recommended Posts



The online sphere is currently abuzz with discussions about Tinder and other dating apps, such as Hinge, allegedly turning users into addicts. A proposed class-action lawsuit claims that these apps, owned by Match Group, are designed with addictive, game-like features that lock users into a perpetual pay-to-play loop.


The lawsuit alleges that these apps prioritize corporate profits over their marketing promises and customers’ relationship goals. It further claims that the apps employ recognized dopamine-manipulating product features to turn users into gamblers locked in a search for psychological rewards that Match makes elusive on purpose.


This issue has gained traction online due to the increasing scrutiny over addictive tech features that harm mental health. The lawsuit comes at a time when tech companies, such as Meta Platforms, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, are facing similar accusations.


In conclusion, the allegations against Tinder and other dating apps have stirred up the online community, making it a trending topic. The lawsuit reflects the growing concern over the impact of addictive tech features on users’ mental health.
