  1. Drug monitoring

    The app is full of drug addicts, sellers and people that put at risk others with their substances.
    I see so many people here in Mexico selling cristal or slam and a lot of users of it, using emojis to hide their substance usage.
    I believes both a feature that monitors this emojis they use to talk about said substances is much needed, even it making a report to the police.
    For other substances such as Alcohol, tabaco, marihuana and poppers there should be a block for people that do not want to match with others that do.

  2. We need to be able to report users, even if they block us.

    There are so many people who are abusive, catfishing, stealing nudes, and doing other nefarious things and getting away with it because they just block everyone once they get what they want, or once they suspect someone’s onto them. We need to be able to report them even after they block us, so we have a better chance of stopping them! Otherwise, the app is literally permitting illegal conduct to continue and refusing to offer any moderation or protection for its users, which is criminally negligent.

  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…

  5. Please let us block people on our viewed list

    If someone sketchy keeps viewing my profile I should be able to block them. Hell, I should be able to block them even if they’re not sketchy. Let people control their grids.

  6. Block viewed me

    Grindr needs to restore the block button on the "viewed me" page. This is a safety issue. There are people/profiles who can/will constantly look at your profile without ever making contact. Without the block button, we will have to go looking for them and if they have no info on their profile how are we supposed to find them? Yes it can be an inconvenience, and yes some might prefer it isn't there, but this will become a serious nuisance.

    In the past i have had experience of completely blank (i.e. no pics/info) profiles that have repeatedly looked at my…

  7. 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.

  8. MAJOR SECURITY RISK

    Grindr Is a major security risk to the safeness of users and people within the community. Ever since I started using the app men have been using my images as their profile pictures to both sell drugs and suggest sexual activity. Sometimes catfishing young men and luring them to locations. I believe the only way the company can come together to solve this issue is to REQUIRE a MANDATORY security process for anyone using face picture images. I believe if you want to upload face pics to the app you must confirm your identity with a legal ID card. Men…

  9. Make Screenshots of pictures not allowed

    On other gay dating apps it is impossible to take screenshots of pictures (Scruff for example). While it’s already impossible to do in the albums feature why not make it impossible across the app. If anything it will protect the privacy of users. I’ve been the victim of a few guys catfishing using pictures they’ve stolen from other real guys on Grindr. Why not make it harder for bots and scammers and give the gay community an extra feeling of safety.

  10. Promote awareness of monkeypox

    Urgently post information to users helping people spot the early symptoms and rash characteristic monkeypox. This recent outbreak is in the early phases, appears to be heavily focussed on the MSM community, has potential to spread and harm, and may already involve people unaware of symptoms (Gay cis-man, Pandemic Scientist and Doctor). Email me an I will hook you up with relevant authorities.

  11. Sex Tracker?

    Can you add a feature that lets you track whom you sleep with? Like let you flag it on their profile and compile a list of whom and when for you. This would make it easy to contact them if you catch something, which makes everyone a whole lot safer.

    A user is trying to get me to give him $1,000 Walmart Gift card. He is threatening to so call expose me with the pictures I sent him and the messages I sent him. He blocked me before I could screen shoot his profile. We did exchange cell number, he called me to threaten as well. I told to go ahead do it. I wasn’t going to give him nothing.

  13. UKRAINE

    GRINDR's purpose is to help people to be free... EACH and ALL of us have a responsibility to help to restore peace and end the slaughter of innocent people in Ukraine.

We are facing a threat of nuclear warfar. GRINDR is in a position to help. The GRINDR channel to Russia…

  14. 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.

  19. Unreciprocated pictures

    Have a swap pictures feature where a user can choose to send a picture in the chat but the receiving user cannot view the photo until they also send a photo. This will prevent users from agreeing to swap photos but not actually sending their photo after receiving a photo.

  20. When you get a warning from grindr. It tells you nothing about what it was. You do not need to know who or when. Avoid false ones.

    Some way, when a warning is issued you should get an email explaining the issue. You do not need to say from whom. Being subjected to a false allegation is not right either. You should not have to wait till the banned pops up because someone does not like your profile especially if it does not violate TOS, I realize moderators are there on a "complaint report", but that does not necessarily make the report Correct. A person should know the particular violation "if there is one.
