  1. Verify users

    This would be to verify a user by one of a few means either they have to send their photo to you with their name on it or instead of utilizing emails as a verification use their mobile numbers similar to whatsap this will stop or minimize the amount of fake profiles as lately grindr has a huge number of pfs that are fake and guys just open a new one with another fake email address

  2. Anonymous STD Alerts

    To prevent the spread of STDs, it would be great to have an option to anonymously notify Grindr hookups of changes in STD status. It could be as simple as an anonymous message saying that “Someone you have hooked up with in the past 3 months has tested positive for ___ (give a drop down box of choices).” Followed by a remind to get tested.

    It is often uncomfortable or impossible to disclose a change in STD status. Therefore, this option would allow users to do it in away that makes them feel more comfortable.

    The option should allow you…

  3. Timed Messages - disappear seconds after read

    Allow user to select a setting which sets the time frame that a message exists in both users messages. User can select from a list “sent messages are” : permanent unless deleted, timed for:
    Sender can select the length of the message. Timer can begin from when message is sent, OR from when message is delivered OR from when the message is read. time remaining until message expires is known to both users

  4. Add city and put local or visitor next to it

    Many people only care to chat with locals of the city they are in or visitor in their city they are in...hence many put as their profile name. It would be great if in the profile you could list the city you live in and for it to say next to it if you are a local or visitor. And for us to filter locals from visitors.

    For example:
    Miami Beach - Local
    Miami Beach - Visitor

    People can use this depending on the relationship they would like to build with the people they talk to. Locals for longer term…

  5. Privacy settings like the icon replacement should be standard

    With all the worry about privacy today, making the app icon a standard feature rather than a premium option would make a strong statement in support of people who might not be out of the closet. Everything else is fair game, however. Great service In general.

  7. Search by free-form text in profile bios

    Please make profiles free-form text searchable so we can better find matches and make richer connections, whether that be for hookups, friends, dates, networking, and/or relationships.
    Searching by tags is a step in the right direction—thank you—but it’s too confining and unreliable :/

  10. Taps optional

  12. Add a profile field for p*nis size

    Allow users to select pnis length in inches or cm (or by small, average, or large), and pnis girth by thin, average, or thick. Perhaps even include a selection for cut or uncut. Give users the ability to filter by this criteria, and that would make Grindr 1000x more fun.

  14. More options for position: BJ JO

    Some of us are not interested in activities where you have to delcare top or bottom. So many options for those of you that are :)

    Can we have options for BJ and JO?

    I would really like to search for guys that are just into BJs or Mutual JO.

  18. Disable 'Google Location Accuracy'

    Grindr is the only social networking app that requires Google’s location service. In order to go online or refresh the cascade, we users are forced to turn it on. This infringes on our privacy and puts our online safety at risk. Grindr can use only our device's GPS (instead of our Wi-Fi and mobile networks) to precisely pinpoint our location and accurately place us on the grid without needing to collect our personal data for third parties like Google and unknown ad companies. This would not change our in-app experience; it just protects our privacy and preserves our battery life.…

  19. Insight feature

    Enable us to see reply rates, as well as the age/height/weight ranges, ethnicities, body types, positions, and tribes that a profile replies to most. Being able to search/filter by these user preferences would be great too.

  20. Notifications that are grouped, detailed, and replyable

    Please bundle our new unread messages under one main notification, which can be pulled down (expanded) to view the individual messages grouped under it. Include each sender’s profile picture and display name, and allow us to reply to each sender individually, within the notification.
    (Currently, unpaid users just get a single, generic notification containing a count of their unread messages, while paid users only see their single most recent unread message. Non-grouped, non-detailed, non-replyable notifications like these are extremely outdated, especially for a messaging app.)
