Grindr’s founder, Joel Simkhai, stepped down as chief executive after Kunlun purchased the remaining stake in the company in January.
Gay men’s HIV status remains highly sensitive because of a history of discrimination, said John Duran, a longtime HIV/AIDS activist who is West Hollywood’s mayor pro tempore.“We’ve fought so hard the last 30 years to ensure HIV status was kept confidential and private,” said Duran, one of only a few elected officials who has disclosed his status as HIV-positive.
The report comes at a time of heightened anxiety about digital privacy because of the data misappropriation scandal involving Cambridge Analytica, a political consulting firm that received unauthorized data from millions of Facebook users through an outside app developer.
Grindr’s vendors, Apptimize and Localytics, are fed user data that includes HIV statuses, GPS data, phone numbers and e-mail addresses that, when combined, could expose someone’s private health information, researchers told Buzz Feed.
In response to an outcry Monday, Grindr will stop sharing users’ HIV status to outside vendors, according to someone close to the company who spoke on the condition of anonymity. In a separate statement Monday, Grindr said it would never sell personally identifiable information to third parties, including advertisers.
