  1. Allow Mock location again

    Allow mock location again
    I'm using it for 2 reasons
    1) to use Grindr at my job using my location of my home because I don't want anybody knowing I'm gay at my job
    2) when I know I'll be in another city for one or two nights to make pre contact with gay there

  2. 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.

  4. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Help identify potential fake accounts and scammers by showing how old an account is

    We should be able to see how long an account has existed to be able to help in weeding out fake accounts and criminals that create accounts for a day.

  9. Enable use of GPS (phone only) for location

    Currently, Grindr stupidly insists you have you location settings on the battery draining "high" accuracy setting, which is GPS plus the Google data gathering machine of Wi-Fi. This needs to be changed to allow GPS only. GPS gives high accuracy anyway so there is no need for anything more which offers no improvement except for Google's finances. Having your location data from an app such as this move outside Grindr's or your phone's realm is a terrible risk, particularly in countries where homosexuality is illegal. We also have the right to determine how location is determined, this should not be…

  10. Verifying every user when they first sign up- too many profiles with NO pictures!

    For verification purposes. Like tinder and MOST other dating/hookup apps have some sort of photo verification system to prove that it’s actually who you say you are. I am SO SICK OF ALL THESE USERS ON GRINDR WITH NO PHOTOS! in my opinion, I think it should be a requirement that if you want to be on Grindr then you need to have a clear, visible unaltered face picture of what you look like, so other members can see who all is in the room AND it’s especially annoying when those exact people with no pictures on their profile go…

  11. Verified profile option

    Allow users optionally to verify their profile and show that on their profile. As tinder and other apps do. That will reduce catfishing and will create safer place for people to engage.

  12. UNLIMITED BLOCKING

    Give all users, premium or not, unlimited blocking. Sometime someone is harassing you and there nothing you can do because you ran out of free blocking. That most of time results in the members deleting his account. I know they can report but until you guys review it one already had to go to a lot of harassment.

  13. Mock locations prohibited

    Guys please allow the use of mock locations again. If this means we have to verify through a phone number like with scruff then that's fine. I can't date for almost 3 months now via grindr cause you guys are blocking the use of mock locations. I get the whole safety stuff but this is not the way to deal with that. Please guys 💔

  14. Discreet App Notification Sounds.

    Have discreet app notification sounds for when you want notifications on. Similar to the discreet app icons. The Grindr notification sound has become a staple sound so it would be good to have options.

  15. Disable distance displayed if user hides his distance

    If users choose to hide their distance then they should nt be allowed to view the distance of others. What goes around comes around. It should be fair for what ever reason a user wants to hide his distance even though Grindr isn't acurate he should loose the option to view others distance.
    Trust works both ways.
    Allowing users to hide their distance but view others means they can see without showing their. This is Not equal.

  16. Make this a safe space for male identifying bi and gay men. This is no longer a safe space with the curious straight men looking for women

    Make this a safe space for male identifying bi and gay men. This is no longer a safe space with the curious straight men looking for women. In an effort to be “inclusive” you have ostracized the very people this was created for. When I get old enough, I’m totally going to change my name to powers.Please give gay and bi men (male or male identifying) the safe space it once was. I am now surrounded by “straight” men that are looking to experiment with women. Cool the straight men and women have been allowed to take something that was…

  18. Allow to block back

    There should be allowance for users who have been blocked by someone the same privilege to block them back. As it is if someone blocks you they completely dissapear. It happens occasionally that I tee up a meeting, After agreeing on a time and place I then take about 1.5 hours getting dressed up and ready, the meeting time has come and gone, I log back in to find the user has blocked me, and I'm unable to block him back, which leaves the person who got blocked vunerable to this kind of behaviour from the same person again and…

  19. Verify account to reduce Ghosting and fake profiles

    It appears Hosting and fake profile to solicit pictures and to raise user emotions before ghosting them is becoming more common than not.

    Not only does this impact the mental health of users who are being ghosted, but it seriously impacts the user and makes them question their existence without our community.
    Fake users are getting off on getting attention but never following through, nor ever going to meet, but lead the user on before blocking them 2 mins before meeting.

    There needs to be some facility within the app to verify the user, or a 'commit to meet' option…

  20. Verification
