  1. 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 :/

  2. 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.…

  3. 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 Non-grouped, non-detailed, non-replyable notifications like these are extremely outdated, especially for a messaging app.)

  4. Badge on profiles indicating how many active users have that profile favorited

    Display an indicator on profiles that denotes how many active users (online within the past week) have that profile favorited. You can call them followers ☺

  5. Improve the reliability of the “Looking For” filter

    As an XTRA subscriber who's not into internet hookups, I filter my cascade for profiles looking for "Friends, Dates, + Relationships." However, profiles looking for "Friends, Right Now, and Chat" will still pop up (for example), and, upon further inspection, it becomes clear that these profiles are only interested in "Right Now," which renders the filter useless. To fix this, please integrate a toggle for a search modifier of “ONLY” into the filter, so that our searches generate more reliable results that better reflect the matches we are looking for.

    Example:
    When selecting "Friends, Dates, + Relationships" in the “Looking…

  6. Do not leave an in-chat notification when an unread message is unsent

    Only messages that were viewed by the recipient deserve an “unsent message” notification if they're retracted by the sender. Messages that were never opened by the recipient, however, should just disappear without a trace. This way, we subscribers can unsend typos and other unseen mistakes without causing any suspicion.

  7. Pause subscription

    For those of us XTRA/Unlimited subscribers who need to take a break from Grindr due to work-related, health-related, or relationship-related reasons, it would be helpful if we could freeze our subscription so we don’t lose the remaining time we’ve paid for. Since we can’t request refunds, at least don’t penalize us when conflicts arise in our personal life that demand us to step away from the app for a bit. You can still keep our money, just give us the option to freeze. This would be especially helpful for those of us on year-long subscriptions.
    (To prevent users from freezing…

  8. Do not store our previous profile photos

    Erase our previously-uploaded profile photos from your database. It is a gross invasion of privacy.

  9. Separate notifications from favorites

    New message notifications from favorites and non-favorites should be grouped separately, with customizable alert sounds too.

  10. Inbox filter: inactive profiles

    This would help us filter out the chats with profiles that have been deleted, deactivated, banned, or gone offline from inactivity.

  11. Inbox filter: one-sided chats

    Most people never respond for one reason or another, so it’d be nice to easily filter out those chats from our crowded inboxes.

  12. 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

  16. Mock location

    Dear Grindr,
    This an important message. I understand that in the recent update Grindr has disallowed usage of "Mock GPS". But Please lend me an ear for a minute.
    There are many like me who still have to live and work in insensitive areas. Where local people are insensitive, apathetic and hateful towards LGBT community.
    My recent experience of using the app in the small town I'm working at was bitter. Everyday I get followed by a local Gay guy from my office to my local residence. Another guy ended up blackmailing me and it was reported too.

    My point…

  17. اصلاح مشاكل تقارير البلاغات واعادتها كما كانت ب 2017 و2018 بضغط زر واحدة ينغلق الحساب المؤذي

    لقد قمت بلابلاغ اكثر من مرة عن اطفال قاصرين من داخل التطبيق وكذالك ارسلت تقارير لفريق الدعم وقمت بتصوير الشاشة لكن لا فائدة لم يفعلو شيئا ولم تغلق حساباتهم لماذا ؟ بعد التحديثات الأخيرة أصبحت تقارير الابلاغ لا تعمل عند الضغط عليها يظهر فقط تم الإبلاغ لكن غير فعال لا ينحظر الحساب الذي ينتهك قوانين البرنامج ، ارجو حل هذه المشكلة فورا ومعالجتها وإعادة تقارير البلاغات كما كانت سابقا في 2017 و 2018 عند إرسال تقرير إبلاغ عن شخص ينتهك الحقوق ينحظر فورا ، ارجو إعادة النظر في الأمر

  19. اصلاح مشاكل تقارير الابلاغ ارجوكم

    I was informed from within the application on an account impersonating my personality more than twenty times, but his account was not closed, why? I am tired of the large number of reporting reports and you did nothing and the account was not closed, and I also sent the support team a message and did nothing 😡 After the recent updates, the application became a garbage There is a bug and problems in the reporting list When sending a report to report abusive accounts do not prohibit their accounts is not the same as it was previously The application before…
