"This was part of the changes that we announced today, and we are working with Tinder to address this issue", a Facebook spokesperson said to WIRED in a statement.

First raised by Select All, the issue has come as Facebook has beefed up its security in the turbulent wake of Cambridge Analytica scandal, which is now reported to have affected 87 million users.

You must be thinking how Facebook can affect someone's Tinder account?

Users can upload existing videos and edit them to create Loops in the Tinder app, changing the playback speed and selecting which segment to save.

App users and football fans from around the world will benefit from a range of exciting and unique fan engagement activities, such as exclusive access to games, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and stadium events.

This post has been updated to note that you can log into Tinder with a phone number, and not just a Facebook profile as previously stated.

If you really need to get back to finding a match, you can still use the desktop version of the Tinder app where your matches should be waiting for you.

The dating app isn't the first to experiment with video.

"This information is used to create fuller profiles, verify authenticity and provide support", the pop-up reads. Some of those who were able to actually log in found their messages and matches wiped, which some considered a sign from the universe to stop using the app to find dates while some were understandably upset.

Tinder has since confirmed that the app is back up and running. "Bravo to Facebook for being considerate of their only valuable product". The feature - "Loop" isn't focused on traditional video, but rather on a shorter, nearly GIF-like looping video format that's been popularized by apps like Instagram's Boomerang and, before that, Twitter's Vine. Basically, it would appear that Facebook has revoked Tinder's permissions, which also means that it's revoked your ability to meet and potentially fall in love with new people.
