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. I ask the Grindr developers to please responsibly lift this invasive requirement, to prevent the misuse of our personal data and promote user security.

Bunch of cheatin and creepin nellys. You really need the ability to change your physical location so you can see what parties your not being invited to. Grow up and put your panties on the way boys do

Having a location marker in a general sense isn't a bad idea....having it tell me someone is 12 feet from me is TOO ACCURATE.....someone could actually use that to try and catch someone cheating....or to try and prove someone is gay....both issues are privacy violations....
Concordo plenamente. Esses dias quase tive problemas com o localizador mesmo marcando a opção de ocultar a localização.

the problem there is that in order to keep an app in Google Play store, you have to forward location data (as well as all sorts of other data) to Google so they can show user-targeted ads inside your app. This is agreed to when putting the app in the play store. This probably isn't going anywhere soon. Take it up with Google.

I think this idea is bad because the lack of user location could lead to numerous abuses.
I absolutley agree!
