Facebook's data access changes are a response to the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which revealed that a data firm had collected data from 87 million Facebook users without their consent.

Updates made by Facebook to the types of data third-party apps can obtain from users crashed Tinder on Wednesday, preventing people from logging into the app.

The new policies appear to be affecting the performance of the dating app Tinder.

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. This process continuously repeats. And that could lead to less surprise on first dates, as people will have already gotten a better sense of who they're meeting, as well as how they like to have fun.

Tinder Loops is now undergoing testing in Sweden and Canada among iOS users.

One of the ways users can log into Tinder includes accessing it through Facebook, so it can access information on their profiles. Tinder said it's also testing the ability to add up to nine photos or Loops to your profile instead of six. Tinder then asks you to hand over "relationship interests, work history, and education history" from Facebook. The Tinder video feature is aimed at allowing the dating app's users to show off their personalities. "This was part of the changes that we announced today, and we are working with Tinder to address this issue", a Facebook spokesperson said to WIRED in a statement. But it's likely that Tinder users will find other use cases for looping videos beyond that.

The feature's launch comes at a time when the competition between modern dating apps has been heating up.

On Tinder, users were greeted by a pop-up titled "Facebook permissions" when they tried to log in with Facebook credentials. Other users have reported that they've been able to sign in, but have reportedly lost all their messages and matches.
