Tinder Locations

The code from my blog post "How Tinder keeps your exact location (a bit) private".

To run the code and re-generate the image from the bottom of the post.

  • pip install -r requirements.txt
  • Make 2 fake Facebook and Tinder accounts and fill in the passwords in the config.py file (sorry)
  • python run.py

This will output a KML file in the output/ directory. View it using Google Earth.

There are quite a few useful helper functions for investigating Tinder's management of locations further. They aren't very well-documented, but if you'd like to use them and are having trouble then send me a message and I'm sure we can figure it out together.

If you notice any consequential mistakes then please do let me know!
