Tinder Sues Dating App Bumble for Allegedly Copying Them

Tinder’s parent company, Match Group, is going after one of its main competitors, Bumble.

CNN reports that Match filed a lawsuit against the dating app which creates a space for women to make the first move. The legal docs state that Bumble, which was co-created by three former Tinder employees, stole their “world-changing, card swipe-based, mutual opt-in premise.” It also states that Bumble has features that were “learned of and developed confidentially” while the Bumble co-creators were at Tinder. This includes the “undo” button, a feature that they say is “nearly, if not literally, identical” to Bumble’s “backtrack” option which lets users go back if they accidentally swiped the wrong way on a person.

  2. Fuck match group in general. They pretty much just buy out and run everything into the ground with shady practices. Be it POF, okcupid, Match, Tinder, and soon to be bumble (Which their attempting a hostile buyout of)
