Shocking Security flaw allows men to Invade Lesbian Dating App mdi-fullscreen


Following Techno Guido’s interview with Robyn Exton, the most famous lesbian in tech, many readers got in touch to express concern over Her, the lesbian dating app’s screening process that aims to stop men from signing up. “Her” uses Facebook’s login to verify that its users are female. As  plenty of readers pointed out this verification process could be manipulated with a simple piece of social engineering.  In the spirit of public service, Techno Guido set out to see if the security flaw was exploitable…

If potential Her users don’t have a Facebook login they can verify themselves by emailing in a selfie with “Her” or “Dattch” written on their hand. All  Techno Guido needed was a willing female accomplice, so he paid a girl from the online marketplace Fiverr to take the picture for him. It cost $5 for the picture, an extra $5 for the selfie taker to include her face – that’s £6.60 at current exchange rates. Bargain.

That’s all it took, Techno was in. The first order of business was to choose a sexuality and set up a profile. Techno Guido is flexisexual..

The App looked pretty much exactly how it had been described: a mash up of Pinterest, the oestrogen fuelled social network that allows people to share their taste in fashion and cooking, and Tinder, the right-swiping dating App. Deviant men looking for a secret lesbian orgy society will be left disappointed..


But Techno did spend a while browsing through, just to make sure he hadn’t missed anything.


Techno Guido hopes “Her” fixes this hole in their security procedures with immediate effect…
