I have a normal profile on Grindr, with a clear facepic, and a vanilla text. But, i do have some fetisjes that i do not want to include in my vanilla profile. It would be nice if i can have more then 1 profile, so I could swap to my kinky profile if i'm looking for more kinky dates and swap back if i'm just looking for 'normal' dates. This could be a function people would pay for. Now i just and old phone for my kinky profile. Why not make it more easy for me and earn some money?
i say why not just make it possible with your one profile to clarify your interests at the time something about hiding things from people makes me uneasy and seems like you should reconsider your doing it if you wouldn't want known for it. but privacy is still acceptable if it is your private life so how about just like a riding crop that you can turn on or off
This can be done. Start with a fresh install. Open your files folders. Dig deep into the applications folder on your phone. Copy and paste it all to a SD card. Use grindrs discrete app icons to set them apart. I used to do it on my S5, s7 and S8. Make sure to use different emails. If you log in into both with the same email. You'll have to start all over. Complete uninstall. Then repeat. I have not tried it on the S9. Still learning my S10. Apple products don't give you that level of control. This process works with all apps. I still use it for snapchat. Gotta keep the day and night life separate.
I live in a country where it’s illegal to be open / out, punishable by imprisonment/ public whipping. Face pics are a no go here. However, when I travel to a democratic country I want to display my face ... however all those people back in the country I come from, (who are on the app) will be able to see my face pic and some of them would have no problems in sharing my face identity with others which could potentially jeopardize my safety/ career.
So for me it’s purely a safety / privacy issue. If Grindr cannot provide this service for all countries, then it could at least provide this service to those countries who are hostile towards the gay community as a service to protect us when we travel. I’m hoping this can be a ‘sooner’ rather than ‘later’ provision.
I agree with this idea for all the reasons mentioned. I don't need my friends and favorites knowing what I'm up to when I'm traveling. At the very least, allow the user to go "incognito" when traveling, or whenever we don't want to be tracked.
It would be very cool to have this.
If you want to swap easily to your kinky profile, easy, just go on to Recon!

This is needed, if I'm at work I'd rather not have coworkers knowing my private business just by looking at me on the app, if we talk about it either in chat or person I have no problem disclosing my fetishes if it comes to that but I don't need the intern knowing I'm in a mood for this or that tonight, there's an app around this called Chappy but still not there as it is I rarely open this app during the day at work, Reckon kinda fits the bill now but the user base is still small
I have no problem talking with someone with without a face pic if one is send on chat and often find guys that have the same interests, having a kinky faceless kinky profile attached to the main profile (ideally verified) could work with clear rules of engagement towards vanilla profiles
if u have fetishes then be a man and proud of them. dont hide it.

No - flat out. This is exactly what we need to be avoiding. Fake profiles are such a nuisance.
No thanks to this idea. Don't use a face pic if you don't want people knowing about your "kinky side" and just put it in your profile to avoid that game; being upfront is better than wasting time.
One of the huge issues with bots and catfish is that any insecure loser can make a thousand profiles on the same phone and the rest of us have to deal with it and have our time wasted. Not worth it.

Already too many posers/catfish accounts as it is. This would only make things worse.
😅😅😅 this is a stupid idea!!
Be yourself elsewhere 😅
I think that would be one of the best improvements. I travel a lot and I know some local people have me in their favourites and check out what I am doing when travelling. It would be excellent to be able to have another profile and not worry about people tracking your moves lol
I so want this!!!!
Some of us have multiple personalities in the sheets/streets

I’d like to see this reintroduced. This used to be possible with the old Grindr Xtra. You could download the Xtra app and a normal Grindr app, allowing access to two profiles.
Now you have to delete the app each time to log into a different account, losing all photos and chats in the process.
This is actually a fantastic idea!!!!
