Donald Daters, a dating app for Trump supporters, leaked its users’ data

 

A new dating app for Trump supporters that wants to “make America date again” has leaked its entire database of users — on the day of its launch.

 

The app, called “Donald Daters,” is aimed at “American-based singles community connecting lovers, friends, and Trump supporters alike” and has already received rave reviews and coverage in Fox News, Daily Mail and The Hill.

 

On its launch day alone, the app had a little over 1,600 users and counting.

 

We know because a security researcher found issues with the app that made it possible to download the entire user database.

 

Elliot Alderson, a French security researcher, shared the database with TechCrunch, which included users’ names, profile pictures, device type, their private messages — and access tokens, which can be used to take over accounts.

 

The data was accessible from a public and exposed Firebase data repository, which was hardcoded in the app. Shortly after TechCrunch contacted the app maker, the data was pulled offline.

 

We reached out to Emily Moreno, the app’s founder and a former aide to Sen. Marco Rubio; she did not comment.

 

According to the app’s website, “all your personal information is kept private.” Except, as it happens, when it’s not.
