The second most popular dating app in India is…
Aisle has become the second most popular dating app this year, with nearly 3 million users in India.
Aisle has found success with people looking for a serious relationship. Also, updates are often released in the application.
The last of these was the “Rooms” function, which makes it possible to start a dialogue with any person.
What has BlueCity accomplished in Q3 2020?
Blued, the largest gay app in the world, had revenue of over 298 million yuan ($ 43.8 million) in the third quarter. This exceeds the last year’s figures by 47.3%.
However, the loss was 138 million yuan ($ 20 million), although it was 7.1 million yuan in the third quarter of 2019.
With profit metrics, user metrics have increased. Compared to last year, their number increased by 7% (to 6.3 million users). Among them, 494 thousand users have become paying, that is, 43.8% more than last year.
Streaming services revenues reached 255 million yuan ($ 37.6 million) and membership service revenues reached 18.2 million yuan ($ 2.7 million).
BLK is something more for black women
BLK is a dating app from Match Group that launched for black singles in 2017.
BLK already has 4 million downloads, and experts believe that such an intense growth is due to the fact that demand has been around for a long time.
In the days of Black Lives Matter, the app received more attention, so it allowed users to create groups in which they felt safe.
At the same time, the main goal remained to support black women.
Users of dating apps on Android remain vulnerable
After conducting the analysis, the researchers found that such large applications as Grindr, Bumble, OKCupid are vulnerable to attackers who can access the personal data of each user.
The vulnerability lies in the ability to penetrate the device through the Google Play library, which allows developers to download updates.
Google Play fixed this issue back in April 2020, but many developers still haven’t downloaded an update to address this threat.
The Santa Cruz County District Attorney’s Office is handling the Match.com case, which is accused of violating the personal rights of users. Match.com faces a $ 10 million fine.
According to the District Attorney’s Office, “Match.com used a design and practice to design a registration and cancellation process designed to hook consumers and make it difficult for them to exit the contract.”
