Manchester City announce multi-year sponsorship deal with Tinder

Tinder is not the only match-making app that needs Facebook to log in. Tinder users started highlighting the issue on Twitter while saying that they have been kicked off the dating app even after back-to-back attempts and couldn't log back on. While some people seriously panicked at the thought of not being able to swipe left or right, most took to humor to deal with the fact that they couldn't cancel dates or couldn't hook up with anyone for a few yours.

Tapping the "Ask me" option below leads them back to the start again, a login loop that can not be defeated no matter how many tears are shed.

Roderick Hsiao, a senior software engineer at Tinder, tweeted that users could still access the service through its web browser while engineers worked on fixing the mobile client.

In an attempt to prevent another Analytica-gate, Facebook on Wednesday implemented new measures to regulate the data third-party apps can use and access.

You must be thinking how Facebook can affect someone's Tinder account?

Villanova Wildcats: 5 takeaways from Final Four win over Kansas Jayhawks
Kansas (31-8) scored the first two points of the game on a basket by Udoka Azubuike, but that's the only time the Jayhawks led. MI and Villanova each emerged victorious from the Final Four with double-digit wins, but their wins weren't at all similar.

The new policies appear to be affecting the performance of the dating app Tinder. Ever since Facebook was hit by Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal where personal data of millions of Facebook users was harvested by the British firm, the social media giant has been rolling out new security and data privacy updates. Facebook is now requiring apps to "agree to strict requirements before they can access this data". While this helped individuals find friends, Facebook said businesses that had phone or email information on customers were able to collect profile information this way. The dating app previously included work and education history on users' dating profiles, though it's not clear whether this feature is causing the glitch.

Facebook announced a tightening of access to data for third-party apps on Wednesday, and confirmed that these changes triggered the lockout on Tinder, where users can sign in using their Facebook account.

If you really need to get back to finding a match, you can still use the desktop version of the Tinder app where your matches should be waiting for you.

The dating app isn't the first to experiment with video.
