As many young Chinese people work overtime, leaving them less time to socialize, some of them turn to dating apps in an attempt to find a partner. But this comes at a cost. On Tuesday, paper.cn exposed a personal information leak from the dating app “Jiayuan”. The report said the app’s employees were able to access members’ personal information, including chat logs and even photos they have examined. In response, Jiayuan apologized and said that he will make corrections. The company explained that its practices were to achieve a more precise match and provide better service to its members. User privacy should be a priority for companies at all costs, especially those that handle people’s personal information. But in practice, to pursue the highest short-term interests, these platforms have ignored the rights and interests of users. They have failed in their social responsibility and have betrayed the trust of their users.
