  1. Privacy settings like the icon replacement should be standard

    With all the worry about privacy today, making the app icon a standard feature rather than a premium option would make a strong statement in support of people who might not be out of the closet. Everything else is fair game, however. Great service In general.

  3. 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.…

  4. It would be gret if grindr stops fake profiles

    Set up the Face recognition, and connect the user with genuine social media profile. So problem of fake profiles can be solved. It is really a massive disappointment. 90% of the profiles are fake.

  6. I would like to remove my location whenever i send my location to guys

    Basically there were few guys whenever i send my location to them and they just suddenly blocked me and it worried me. Like I thought they may break into my place and it scares me so i would like to take my location down whenever i send one. I just take it down and also i wanna take my pics down whenever i send one. That would be nice to remove location or pics from a chat.

  9. Do not store our previous profile photos

  10. Autodelete photos sent

    It would be helpful to have a feature where photos get deleted after a certain time like snaps. So no one else uses your photos .

    When I report malicious and abusive accounts, you do not block these malicious accounts. Why? After recent updates, reporting reports are not working as well as they were in previous releases in 2017 and 2018. Please solve and develop this problem with one press of the offensive account. Please consider it and thank you

  16. ENFORCE your OWN policy against impersonation. I’ve REPEATEDLY reported a profile that is blatantly impersonating me - you do NOTHING

    You repeatedly show a disregard for your own policies and the privacy of even paying members like me who have submitted ALL the evidence you need to stop someone from impersonating me and has blocked me to make it easier for him and harder for me to directly report him. You clearly don’t care about your own policies or your members. No doubt you will also ignore this but I am warning people I know that you encourage and allow impersonation. And ironically you make me agree to your terms of service to post this yet you allow and enable…

  18. Officially VERIFIED accounts

    Have VERIFIED profiles,with a little checkmark in the corner of their profile. The same as we have to do when we get reported as “being underage” send a pic of us and our id and whatnot to show that they really are 18+ and that they are a real human! Or partner with a 3rd party (e.g. ID.me) or use 2 factor Authentication / facial recognition software. I’m 24 and if I have to keep submitting my stuff over and over again I’m gonna lose my mind! It also sucks that I have to EMAIL pictures I want to post…
