Grindr and OKCupid Sell Your Data, but Twitter’s MoPub Is the Real Problem

On January 15, a Norweigian Consumer Council (NCC) investigative report exposed the ways that Grindr, OKCupid, and eight other apps are collecting and sharing extremely sensitive personal data.

A third-party advertising company called MoPub, owned by Twitter, was responsible for much of the technology that Grindr used to collect and share data. MoPub operates in the vast, convoluted, opaque ecosystem of personal data collection and sharing that powers modern adtech.
