Holy See’s Security Risked by CCP’s Location-Based Apps

July 30, 2021

Location-based hookup apps, such as Grindr, used by officials or employees of Church institutions, could present serious security problems for the Church, even at the Holy See’s diplomatic and international relations level.

Grindr was launched in California but acquired by the Chinese gaming firm Beijing Kunlun Tech in 2016 for $93 million. Associated with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the app’s ownership is a national security risk over concerns that data from the app’s some 27 million users could be accessed by the CCP-controlled government and used for blackmail. Chinese law requires tech companies to provide access to national intelligence-gathering agencies.
