Now, swipe photos on Tinder under encryption

Tinder has finally fixed a security vulnerability on its dating platform which potentially allowed hackers to intercept photos between the app and the servers.

The company announced that all photos exchanged on its platform are now encrypted, Engadget reported.

The changes follow an attack revealed in February that could have allowed hackers to access users' profile pictures and swipe actions.
