If you suspect your partner is using Tinder to cheat on you, this new website could potentially help you expose them.

The new website, Swipe Buster, allows users to search for people who use the dating app by simply entering their name, age, gender and closest location — all for $4.99.

However, some have criticized the site for allowing people to access intimate information that could enable them to stalk.

It searches Tinder’s database using the app’s API, which is freely available to be used by developers.

The brains behind the site, who asked to remain anonymous, told Vanity Fair it started as a way to “educate people about how much of their personal data is out there.”

A Tinder spokesman said all the data is public information.

“If you want to see who’s on Tinder, we recommend saving your money and downloading the app for free.”

The response to the site on Twitter has been mixed, with some questioning how it could be used.

Dating sites and apps are no strangers to data breaches.

AshleyMadison.com, an “extramarital” dating website, was hacked in 2015, exposing email addresses and account details from the site’s 32 million members.

Gay networking app Grindr has also been accused of ignoring security flaws that allow users to track the locations of users.
