Starting tomorrow, you can sign up for Bumble without a Facebook account

In the worst data leak in company history, Facebook initially reported that 50 million of its users' private information was used without consent by United Kingdom -based Cambridge Analytica for critical political voting in that country and the U.S. First time users shared their Facebook profile with Bumble, which imported their name, age, school or occupation and photos to build a profile. "If you register or login to the App using your Facebook account, you are authorizing us to access certain Facebook account information", the TOS reads, "including information you make available via Facebook, your friends list, relationship status, current location and those friends you have in common with other Bumblers".

Most of this isn't new information, but it's part of Facebook's initiatives to be more transparent with the governmen t and its users about how the data it collects is shared. Ahead of the introduction of the EU's so-called General Data Protection Regulation, Facebook said it would be asking users to check their privacy settings and tell the firm how "we may use your data". Other dating apps allow phone number registration but, according to Bumble, "still share data with Facebook".

"Many of our users and prospective users asked for an alternative registration method", says Louise Troen, Bumble's VP of International Marketing and Communications.

But the recent data-sharing scandal has raised concerns about the safety of private information on Facebook, prompting Bumble to change course. Bumble used the Facebook login as a way to speed up the registration process and verify identities.

The dating app isn't getting rid of Facebook altogether though.
