Users of online dating site Adult Friend Finder – and the various alternative sites in its network – have been left with concerns after it emerged that the database of almost 4 million records has been hacked and leaked. It’s essentially a dating website (a phenomenon that seems geared more towards men than women), albeit one with a number of sub-websites within the umbrella, each catering for different bedroom interests.
These include Alt.com, Senior Friend Finder, Amigos.com, Big Church.com, and others.
A relic of the “old web”, Adult Friend Finder is still going strong despite competition from Match.com, and mobile apps like Tinder (although if you’re dating with that app, avoid these common Tinder mistakes).
Users are required to sign-up and provide a username and photo to start chatting with others, and contacts can be made based on location, sexual interest, age, etc.
For those with a positive interest in sexual activities, these sites can prove useful, if you provide credit card information to pay for a subscription, you can unlock additional features.
Typical information stored by Adult Friend Finder includes your credit card details (number, expiration date, name and billing address) and things like your age, height, eye color, weight, physical attributes and even your sexual interests.
Not only has the data been hacked, it has also been put up for sale for ,000 worth of Bitcoins.
Considering the details potentially locked in this database, that price seems low.
