The news "should be a little bit of a wakeup call" for people using apps to meet partners, said John Wright, the editor of Houston's OutSmart magazine, which is published for the LGBTQ community. Women almost always are urged to take precautions when meeting men they don't know. But men tend not to think of themselves as potential crime victims when they're meeting strangers for dates or sex, said Andrew Edmonson, a gay rights activist in Houston. Of course, dating apps aren't new, and this isn't the first time they've been used to hurt someone. In London last year, a man was sentenced to life in prison for drugging and killing four young men he met through Grindr.
And four Dallas-area men have been indicted on federal hate-crime charges for using fake Grindr profiles to target gay men, tying up their victims and stealing their property. This doesn't mean we need to ban dating apps - or even the ones used mostly for hookups. There's not a killer lurking behind every dating profile, said Kristin Judge, director of government affairs at the National Cyber Security Alliance.
Of course, there's a big difference between using apps to find a relationship and using them for a quick, anonymous hookup. The "rules" are different, and so are the safety concerns. If you're trying to find a long-term relationship, the apps offer tips and tools for staying out of harm's way. If you want a one-night stand, you won't find as many safeguards.

Hinge displays each user's full name and pulls profile photos directly from Facebook. Most dating apps offer at least a few tools to help users protect themselves from a potential swindler or predator.

The catch: To initiate a matchPhone call, you'll have to pay extra - it's a premium service. Tinder authenticates users by connecting to their Facebook profiles.
