Russian Intelligence wants Tinder user data

Russian communications regulator demands from Tinder to provide user data to Russian intelligence agencies, AP reported.

The Russian Communications Surveillance Agency has published a new list of online services operating in Russia, which are required to provide user data at the request of the Russian authorities, including the Federal Security Service (FSB).
In recent years, Russia has adopted a legislative act aimed at tightening control over online activities.

The regulator said on Monday that Tinder shared information about the company and is now on the list of online applications and websites that are expected to cooperate with the FSB.

Last year, Russian authorities issued an order to ban the Telegram app for messages after refusing to provide user data as required by Russian law.
