Tinder bypasses Google Play, joining revolt against App Store fee • Bloomberg
Olivia Carville:
<p>Tinder joined a growing backlash against app store taxes by bypassing Google Play in a move that could shake up the billion-dollar industry dominated by Google and Apple Inc.

The online dating site launched a new default payment process that skips Google Play and forces users to enter their credit card details straight into Tinder’s app, according to new research by Macquarie analyst Ben Schachter. Once a user has entered their payment information, the app not only remembers it, but also removes the choice to swap back to Google Play for future purchases, he wrote.

“This is a huge difference," Schachter said in an interview. “It’s an incredibly high-margin business for Google bringing in billions of dollars," he said.

The shares of Tinder’s parent company, Match Group Inc., spiked 5% when Schachter’s note was published on Thursday. Shares of Google parent Alphabet Inc. were little changed…

…Match declined to answer questions about whether the company was also investigating bypassing Apple’s App Store. Match is expected to discuss the payment flow change with analysts and investors during its next earnings call on Aug. 6.</p>

Haven't people always been able to bypass Google's app store fees? It's just that getting them to pay in the app is more convenient for them, as it's all entered there. Bypassing Apple is much harder, and a hassle for the customer.

Tinder and the Russian Intelligence Services: It’s a Match!
"The announcement this week that Russian authorities had asked the dating app Tinder to hand over photos and messages exchanged by Russian users is just the latest step in a sweeping clampdown on free speech in the country by President Vladimir Putin—one that has taken a turn for the absurd lately.

Last year, authorities cancelled the shows of dozens of Russian rappers and hip-hop artists to supposedly protect youths from immoral content. In April, a man was fined $470 after calling Putin “an unbelievable fuckwit,” in violation of a new law against insulting the authorities. And last week the Kostroma regional office of Roskomnadzor—a government body that oversees the media and internet—coached local journalists on how to cover sensitive topics such as drugs, suicide, and insults to the authorities, according to the news site Mediazona. Since detailed reporting on suicide methods is banned in Russia, journalists were handed a cheat sheet on how to stay on the right side of the law. If a man throws himself in front of a train, the journalists were told to report that the man was “accidentally hit by a train.”

Tinder isn’t the first Western tech company to face scrutiny from Roskomnadzor, which has taken on an increasingly powerful censorship role in recent years. In 2016, the networking site LinkedIn was blocked in Russia for refusing to store the data of Russian users in the country. In a statement issued at the time and reported by TechCrunch, LinkedIn it believed it had complied with all applicable Russian laws, but the company had been unable to reach an understanding with Roskomnadzor to have the ban lifted." - Amy Mackinnon, Foreign Policy

Tinder faces Russian demand to share user data
"Russian authorities have told dating-app Tinder it will have to comply with requests to hand over messages and photos of its users in Russia. Under recent Russian laws, 175 companies have been put on a register that requires them to store data for six months on Russian servers. Companies that refuse, like the private messaging app Telegram, risk being blocked in Russia. Tinder said it had 'registered to be compliant'. However, it was adamant that 'this registration in no way shares any user or personal data with any Russian regulatory bodies and we have not handed over any data to their government'." - BBC
