OKCupid Removes Decade-old Workaround For Its Paid Version
ARSTECHNICA - July 28 - OKCupid users no longer see the "visitors" tab, an "A-list" feature that OKCupid introduced in 2009. Among other features, this automatically informs users whenever someone tapped "like" on their profile, even if they haven't "liked" them back. Those who opt not to pay for A-List had a different path towards this kind of discovery: the free "visitors" tab, which listed every user who looked at their profile. In short, a user could look through and see who looked at them. But as of today, OKCupid now only has one option to reveal that information: A-List subscriptions, which cost $19.95 per month or $59.70 as a six-month bundle.http://www.onlinepersonalswatch.com/new ... rsion.html

Jack'd App Improves Location Security
ABOUT NEWS - Aug 1 - In response to rising LGBT hate crimes since the 2016 US Election (25% increase), the gay dating app Jack'd has heightened security with new features including one that blurs the GPS of its members. Before the launch of the blurring feature, Jack'd had disabled location sharing in countries where homosexuality was illegal. The blurring now allows these men to safely use GPS technology to find nearby men. It adds a rounding error to the member's coordinates so that other men are given a general idea of their whereabouts without pinpointing their exact location. Even Jack'd's servers do not know the exact location of members.http://www.onlinepersonalswatch.com/new ... urity.html
