Lena Dunham is skeptical of those who use Tinder.

In a recent People video, the star and creator of HBO's Girls discussed the dating app with her co-stars

Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet and Allison Williams. "Tinder scares me," Dunham, a two-time Golden Globe winner, confessed. "I think Tinder is a tool for murder." Mamet, meanwhile, said she "didn't even know what it is, exactly." Kirke called it a "sex website," while Williams confirmed that it's a dating app.

"It's for having sex specifically," Kirke argued.

"If you're talented at it, you can have sex eventually," Williams said, "but..."

It's not too surprising that the four co-stars aren't familiar with Tinder, given that Dunham is dating fun. musician Jack Antonoff, Kirke is married to lawyer Michael Mosberg, Mamet is seeing actor Evan Jonigkeit and Williams is planning a wedding with the co-founder of College Humor, Ricky Van Veen.

"Have you seen there's Furry Friends? It's Tinder for dogs," Dunham said, presumably referring to the app Pet Finder, which she tweeted about in January 2014. "You put in your desires for a dog and then you swipe and they match you with a dog."

Moments later, Mamet had a realization: "Oh, wait! Tinder and Grindr are different!"

"Grindr is gay," Dunham and Williams said unison.

"I can't keep up!" Mamet said in mock exasperation.

Needless to say, the girls on Girls won't be using Tinder in the show's fourth season, airing Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. "It's not about being famous. It's not about being anything. It's not even about being in a committed relationship," Dunham told her four friends. "I believe Tinder is a tool for murder."
