Dating apps may have eased the lives of people to some extent, but they have also given rise to a lot of heinous crimes. There have been several instances of fake ids, cheating and fraud on dating and matrimonial apps.

However, the sudden rise in murders and killings has become a matter of concern.

Dating apps were originally made to help people meet their lovers who did not bump into their lovers in classrooms, tuitions, college or some empty corridor. However, the gross misuse of the apps has led to rise in scammers, leak of sensitive information and address of young girls and threat to life. 

So, it is high time that teenagers should be extremely carefully as to who they match and swipe right. One should identify the red flags before they proceed with the relationship or make the match in person and give them their address or give them your WhatsApp number.

If a match is making you uncomfortable, it is very easy to block and report them. You can block a person on Bumble by different ways - via their profile, and via a conversation.
