Tinder app users, is your love interest a human?

If you had bad luck on dating websites, Tinder mobile program might seem like just the right thing you need. After processing your Facebook interests, personal information, contacts‘ lists and geographical location, it delivers you a possible love match who is closest to you geographically. Despite these advantages, there is one thing you should be aware. Are you sure that you are communicating with an alive human being?

For those who are not well acquainted with computer terminology, bots may not raise any sense of alert. Bots are robots or machines, programmed to do a particular task. Interestingly, that they amount to 61% of the entire web market. Likewise, there is a variety of chatbots which are designed to imitate human conversation. Due to Tinder gaining rapid popularity among single netizens, Tinder bots have been spotted in the market. If you have been using this application for a while and found a female or male looking like a Hollywood celebrity, you should question who or what you are communicating with. Less elaborate bots easily reveal their real identity: you might have just made the confession of a lifetime, while the bot spams you with links to unknown websites. What is more, your conversation partner responds in the lightening speed. No human is able to type in a fraction of a second after reading a several-paragraphs-long message. In the case of a hot discussion, conversation participants tend to leave typos or grammar mistakes. In contrast, chatbots reply fluently. If you are communicating with a sophisticated Tinder app bot, you might notice regularly appearing messages mismatching the overall context.

Beware of chatting with Tinder bot

You may wonder what is the key objective of such robots. Despite whether it is a simple machine or more sophisticated variation, all dating app bots either tempt you to click on the link redirecting to a corrupted website or indirectly deceive you into downloading a dodgy program. If you give in to bot’s allurement and recklessly follow its suggestions, you might end up with ransomware or advertising trojan in the mobile device. In short, retain a vigilant eye and question the identity of your ‘love match’ while engaging in a Tinder app chat.
