A recent Facebook update temporarily broke Tinder and users were not happy. The changes came in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal where it was revealed that the data of approximately 87 million Facebook users was improperly shared with an outside party.

In response to the controversy, Facebook has been updating its privacy settings in a bid to protect users privacy from third-party apps.

However, its latest update caused a problem with Tinder. Users found they were forced off the app, and when they tried to log back in, they were stuck in an endless loop of the app asking for permissions. What's worse, when some users were able to finally log in, they found all of their matches and conversations had disappeared.

The Tinder glitch comes after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that most people on Facebook have had their data scrapped by an outside-party, due to a privacy loophole that the company has now closed in the recent updates.

Tinder took to Twitter to assure users that they were working on the problem, and the app was back running within a few hours. However, Tinder has a lot of users, so the app being down almost constituted a national emergency. Of course, frustrated Tinder fans took to Twitter to share their grievances.

Users couldn't handle losing their matches

Some people took it as a sign

While others showed their thirstiness

And one user shared a helpful tip

And finally, Tinder welcomed users back
