I have a patent which could be used in conjunction with Grindr to allow STD verification. No one has the ability to remotely verify someone's identity, because it could be a desire for a user to share a profile. As disease control goes, that is unacceptable. However, you could have a profile and compare innumerable profiles to search for only those matches that compare favorably and then authenticate the individual using biometrics like an iris scan, face to face using my method: "system for scheduling, recordation, and biometric validation of interpersonal interactions," which is fully patented. It employs a variety of passive and active security mechanisms that will ensure that the gentlemen are all going home with the correct dude and it can be stored using biometric data that can't readily identify the men in question, even if the service is compromised. It far surpasses the security of state issued IDs for both user to user identification and I am going to be pursuing biometric identification between the user and the clinician acquiring the STD test samples from the user. No one can identify all the fake state IDs, but tightly linking test results to an iris scan is ideal.

The problem with this is that STD information is protected health information (PHI) under HIPAA law, which requires a medical release form be signed in ink, and requires that the information cannot be re-released without explicit authorization on a per-release basis, and only then, for bona-fide medical purposes. Plus, the servers would have to be upgraded to HIPAA compliant security standards. This idea, while great, simply isn't doable in the eyes of the law.
This guy is on drugs. 😂😂
“Verified” status. A points system where a person you met can give you a +1 if you are the being in the pics (even if you are non that good looking :D). Points are assigned only when both people vote each other. No negative votes. Black Mirror inspired
The OP is insane or inane. Do you not know about privacy issues and laws, especially with medical data.
The idea is good for profile verification, yet still a bit difficult to integrate anyway. At the end of the day, who is going to go get a fake ID just to have a fake profile?
When someone chooses to add HIV status to profile, ask the person to verify it by sending code to his phone which makes sure that person is not lying. So a profile with verified status will be authentic and more people will tend to use Grindr because it is authentic site now.
What? Ate you insane? Do you think peopple will provide grinder with their STD results?
You know how to prevent STDs with strangers? Wear a condom ! Thats all. And if you looking fot bareback *** there is worst things than hiv, like hepatitis C! If you dont trust who you are having *** whith wear a condom.
Sharing that kind of information violate many laws and privacy and human dignity.
The tool to allow people to list PrEP is great, but since it’s release I have been worried about its potential abuse. People could lie and mark their status as “on PrEP” to make risky decisions that put their health and the health of unsuspecting others at risk. Clearly, a responsible person should verify the other persons’ status themselves, but what can Grindr do to help keep people healthy and informed?
