  1. Member identification Verification

    To cut down on crime; fake profiles and stolen pictures. Members should be verified it can be done securely online and still permit anonymity. There have been several reports of individuals using pictures as a way to lure unexacting victims to crimes such as robbery; burglary. It has happened to me and others I’ve connect with on this app. Giving members the option and opportunity to be verified and to meet other verified individuals will cut down on the usage of stolen profile pictures; fake pictures and crime. No one wants to talk about gay on gay crime. And the…

  2. Add COVID Vaccination status and/or quarantine status

    There should be an option to add your COVID vaccination status for the safety of all of the community, especially essential workers and personnel. A resource page could be added to help direct people to a page where they can find info on vaccination availability in their area and time frame. Options could be "Vaccinated", "Partially Vaccinated", "Plan to vaccinate", and "No plan to vaccinate".

  3. Implement verification feature to stop bots, spam, and harassment/making numerous new accounts

    The amount of guys on Grindr who use this app to harass people for various reasons, only to make dozens upon dozens of new profiles within minutes to continue the harassment. Stop allowing people like this to utilizing Grindr as a tool to harm others or make others scared or uncomfortable. We are supposed to be a community and Grindr is about finding and having fun. I’ve heard and experienced way too many horror stories with self proclaimed “discreet” guys deleting and remaking profiles to avoid the fact that they’ve been blocked by people THEY are harassing or being creepy/predatory…

  4. Simultaneous photo sending/unlocking

    Trading photos is a pain. There's always a debate about who is going to send theirs first. There should be an option to send another user your photo but that photo only gets shown or unlocked to them if they have sent one of their own to you. Both photos unlock simultaneously.

    I could see the notification saying, "this user has chosen a photo to send to you through the fair photo trade option. If you wish to make a fair trade choose a photo to send them in return and we will unlock both simultaneously"

    This would reduce the…

  6. Early spam/fraudulent account detection

    The amount of spammers/scammers has EXPLODED and become unbearable.

    It would be great if Grindr engineers used some ML (machine learning) models to preemptively flag potential spammers/scammers and then ban/remove accounts when only 1-2 users report them as spam, instead of the current system of what seems like "manual verification" and probably wait for "enough" users to report a profile.

  7. Vote for verification with an ID card, driver's license or mobile number !

    Have you ever considered that it is normal to verify a person with some kind of document and to limit the misuse of accounts and new accounts constantly? Vote to stop all crazy people who are constantly creating new accounts and harassing other users by insulting and manipulating, let's stop anonymity and madness in some way by banning IP address, email, phone number or personal data from documents! Thanks

  8. Being blocked shouldn’t erase the chat on my side.

    If someone blocks me, I also lose all the chat I had with that person. But what if the person has been threatening me and I got proof in the chat about a crime or anything like that... if they block me, I lose it all. It shouldn’t be like that!!!

  9. Erase all photos ever sent

    It would be important from a security perspective that any user has the option to have all the content erased from all conversations (especially pictures). That way privacy can be maintained for discreet people and if you decide to log out for a while then no one has access to the photos you sent while you're away from the app.

  10. Verified Account

    Much like how tinder verifies the users by submitting a photo to be approved by Grindr employees to verify that the person that is on the account profile is the person behind the account itself. No one likes a catfish and it would greatly improve the safety of being on this app.

  12. Screenshot Notifications/Blocking

    Users should be notified of/have the ability to block other users from non-consensual screenshots of the photos we send, our chats, and our profiles.

  13. The option not to have music played when you open Grindr

    It’s hard to be discreet when the music starts playing when you open Grindr. Please have an option to disable the music being played.

  14. Get rid of the creepy "viewed you" feature

    The "viewed you" feature really detracts from the user experience, especially in its latest version. It takes all privacy away from browsing. You should give users the ability to opt out of it or at least make it less intrusive. Seems like you work tirelessly to male this app incrementally less pleasant to use.

  15. Choose a different colour other then orange so it’s less obvious to everyone that you are on Grindr

    When using the app how about being able to choose a different colour other then orange - purely so that it’s more discreet…?!

  16. Clear my data should be an option

    As any other websites worldwide, it's proper to give your members the opinion with about any hassle and free of charging for their personal life safely. If a person is cruise got an account and after few days decided to erase it, it's their right to leave with their own history. It make Grinder looks like they care about $$ only it can be one option erase the whole "Account reset" no fancy options that for who get the membership.
    Thank you for making Grindr even better every day

  17. Safety against blocked accounts

    When we block people, it's probably because we are not interested, they have been naughty, or sometimes while reporting them, sometimes fake profiles.

    My idea is, since now on Grindr there is the phone number verification, I'd like to say if we block someone, Grindr should also not allow us to see accounts they might create again. Grindr should block automatically the account they would like to create so we csbt see them nomore

  18. When you have blocked someone but they can still view your profile 😠

  19. BLOQUEIOS / PRIVACIDADE / SEGURANÇA

    BLOQUEIOS
    - Gostaria que quando alguém me bloqueasse a conversa não sumisse, pois percebi que vários usuários necessitam delas para comprovar diversas situações.

    • Gostaria de pedir e/ou sugerir que tivesse a opção de bloquear cidades/estados mesmo que vizinhos, pois para alguns usuário como eu que deseja apenas comunicação local é chato ter que ficar bloqueado um por um.

    Ex: Na CIDADE 1 e não quero que meu perfil apareça para pessoas da CIDADE 2,3,4, enfim... Tipo que eu pudesse bloquear os lugares que eu não desejo que eles me vejam e vice versa, como tem em um aplicativo vizinho "de…

  20. Deletion Of Messages In Inbox When Person Blocks Is Both A Criminal's Charter And Illegal

    When I am messaging with someone they often prove to be dodgy and the more I talk the more I garner proof. Those up to no good reach a point where they may be as good as exposed and have said too much so they block you. Upon doing so all their chat with you disappears along with all evidence and their identity.

    This is 100% wrong and makes Grindr a less safe place, disempowers users to make it safer and also happens to be illegal because messages in one's inbox are the property of the receiver in law just…
