More than 1.5 million users of a swinger’s dating service had personal data including their location exposed, with several appearing at the White House and 10 Downing Street.

The dating app 3Fun aims to connect “local kinky, open-minded people” and is billed as the “Best Threesome App” and a “private space where you can meet couples or singles with minds that breathe freedom.”

It is a “field for you to discover your sexuality and explore it by yourself, with your other half or with any human you’d like. Explore love beyond societal norms.”

Pen Test Partners, a cyber-security research firm, published findings which showed the app was leaking the exact location, private photographs, and personal details of users.

Those details included dates of birth, sexual preferences and chat data.

Researchers also found users could “spoof” their location by putting in any co-ordinates they wished, which could allow them to obtain sensitive information on anyone in a particular area.

As well as the White House and Downing Street, users were also found to be located at the US Supreme Court.

However, Penn Test Partners said: “It’s technically possible to re-write one’s position, so it could be a tech savvy user having fun making their position appear as if they are in the seat of power.”
