      We are aware some websites are employing a phishing scam that supposedly advertises new features on Grindr and solicits Grindr users to provide account credentials. Please know that we move quickly to report such fraudulent sites.

      For your account security, we advise you to never provide your username and password to any third parties claiming to provide a benefit as they are not authorized by Grindr and could potentially have malicious intent.

      If you used this site or disclosed your credentials to any third party, we recommend that you change your password now.

      The privacy and security of our users’ data are top priorities for Grindr. We employ multiple strategies across various platforms to maintain an extremely high level of privacy and security. Our dedicated team of global security researchers work to quickly identify potential issues and quickly resolve them. We’re committed to continually improving our efforts to ensure our…

    • 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…

          • Save contacts and add private note to profiles

            When talking with too many guys is difficult to keep up with the pace. Having the ability to create a list of contacts and being able to name it in a personalized way will help to remember the guys I have talked to.

                    • Recall sent messages before they are read

                      Sometimes I make a mistake when I type out a message and I want to be able to delete the message that I typed out . what would be nice before a feature where you can hold down on a message for a specific amount of time and then an option appears where you can delete the message.

                        • Mark as unread

                          Sometimes we receive messages, we read it and we’re not able to reply immediately, the messages are marked as read and then they get lost when we receive new messages from others users and we forget. It would be great a feature “mark as unread” so we can get back to them later filtering unread messages.

                                Allow us to retract messages we previously sent within a chat, and replace them with "Message unsent by sender."
                                This feature works great on Scruff and would be VERY valuable on Grindr.

                                          Some people have mental disorders/neurodevelopmental types, ADHD, ADD etc as well as Dyslexia. The chat colour bubbles do not help people with these conditions and in fact, could agitate said disorders. Can we please see customizable colours, so that people will feel more at ease with chosen colours. Not all gay men are able-bodied and some gay men have hidden mental health conditions. Lets really talk about equality and make all men equal and not just the next top model! Thank you. It would also help elder gay males and men with sight issues. Thank you!
