In a letter sent to its users the dating app said that some people who used the app before May 2018 might have been affected. It further says that only your name and email address is affected, because it doesn’t store passwords or financial data.

As TechCrunch notes:

This breach was discovered as part of a larger data dump of some 617 million account details, which recently went up for sale on the dark web. According to the seller, the stolen account databases came from a number of sites, including also Dubsmash, MyFitnessPal, MyHeritage, Whitepages, Animoto, HauteLook, 500px, and several others.
