Tinder, an app where people looking for dates swipe left or right on the profiles of other users to reject or accept them, will have to cooperate with Russian authorities or face being completely blocked in the country.The rule would apply to any user’s data that goes through Russian servers, including messages to other people on the app.
The Russian Communications Oversight Agency on Monday, June 3 published a new list of online services operating in Russia that are required to provide user data on demand to Russian authorities, including the FSB security agency.

In 2016, a court ordered that Linked In be blocked.
A total of 175 online services are on the list requiring them to hand over user data to Russian authorities. Popular messaging services such as Whats App or Facebook Messenger are not on the list.
Tinder, which is based in West Hollywood, California, said Monday that it has registered to be compliant with Russian authorities but added that it has “not handed over any data to their government.” But the company did not say whether it plans to do so in the future.
Russia adopted a flurry of legislation in recent years tightening control over online activity.
