Alert me when someone has taken a screenshot of a picture I uploaded to Grindr.
Please reply me to my email address so that i will introduce about me to you with my details and with some of my pictures
I also screen shot for my personal use. It is also in case a fake profile blocks me before I can report the profile, I can send the pic with that included a pay web site address imbedded in the picture to Grindr.
This needs to have a Down Vote to see if it really is the majority that wants this feature. A lot of the comments are against the idea, and we have no way of knowing how many people don't like the idea.
Please DO NOT implement it without giving those of us against it a chance to vote NO on it with a button under the Vote yes button.
A screenshot is also useful if someone threatens you. You can make a record of it that can be used for law enforcement. Alerting the sender will only jeopardize the safety of others. And in the case of real predictors, a screenshot could be used to identify them by law enforcement.
If you are afraid of someone taking a screenshot anything you send or text, then don't send or text anything you are afraid of being used against you.
Okay great, so we're notified it was taken, that's it? How about the account taking screenshots face some sort of consequence? Oh right, you guys don't care. They'd just be back in a few minutes with a new account because you don't have proper verification or limits per device. Hopeless as usual.
Should I know when a screenshot was taken, Authenticator permission and information ℹ️?
Guys please take a look on other gay dating apps. Like BLUED for example. This feature only allow us to know when one's screenshoot anything from our chats. It's not blocking them to do so. Probably if you want to make it better, i think it would be like this. When someone screenshot anything from us, that would be an alert. That would be good too if we can select whether the app shall process the screenshot or not. If we click yes, the person would receive the screenshot to their phone. If we click no, the person would only receive a blank screenshot to their phones.

Most of these fake profiles use pics stolen from other sites such as Facebook. Grindr doesn't care as it is a Chinese company
The screenshots should be totally prevented.
Delta app has made this feature better... Completely blocked screenshot so that people can not use ur photo or blackmail or shame.you
I screenshot maps or addresses so I can access them easily, rather than scroll back up through the whole conversation to find their address. Taking screenshots can be useful from a safety perspective, or in the case of fake/stolen pics if you spot them. There are heaps of ways around this anyway as others have pointed out, I don't think it is worth developer's time

Or just block screenshots on the application similar to the case of banking applications. That is really very urgent to make the app more safe and have less fake users collecting pictures.

Banning screenshots is a really bad idea.
It's hard to do well with the iOS and Android APIs (this changes with OS version, but generally has been hard to impossible) and there are ways round it. Intercepting the https response via MTM or, more crudely, taking a photo of the screen with a camera.
Notifications of screenshots is, in iOS at least, really easy. But is it worth it? Tons of extra notifications. Urgh!
I screenshot only to run pics through Tineye (reverse image search) whenever I suspect someone is using stolen or fake pics. It has helped me identify 3 fakes in the last several months.
If this feature goes through to development, then it will make those who take screenshots for reverse image searching seem like “pic stealers”. If I was in charge of product development, I’d spend the company’s precious time & resources working on stronger user verification.
I dont see the problem with screenshots. I like to keep a record of who I hookup with so I screenshot everything.
People will find work around anyway. Don't worry about it. Why not let people have a photo of you or your ****?

I believe screenshots should NOT be allowed at all
I think it would be better if they blocked being able to do screen shot like many internet pages; that prevent you from doing screenshot. that would be called copyright
Something just like snapchats notification would be awesome

And so what, you get a notification that the other user took a screenshot of your pic. Then what? They still have it.

I use screenshots to photo search people for safety and alert people of fakes or dangerous people. Screenshot has it's purposes.
