  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. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. “Not interested” instead of “Blocked”

    Change the verbiage of the Blocked button to say not interested so it doesn’t feel as cruel to block someone. I don’t want to start conversations with guys who message me if I’m not interested in them, but I also don’t want to leave them hanging. The thing that happens when you block someone is really the best option. We become out of sight, out of mind from each other. But the word Block sounds a little harsher than it needs to be. Essentially I’m just not interested. Whether I’m not interested because you’re a hot muscle jock and I’m…

  6. 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.

  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. 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.

  9. 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!!!

  12. 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

  13. These fake accounts can pose as people near you and try to get money out of you over time. Allow free Xtra features to protect your users.

    By allowing some of the “Xtra,” features that you charge a tremendous amount of money for just isn’t right. We should all have the right to show if we’re online or not as wel as have more blocks so we don’t get harassed constantly. There’s also so many scammers that seek to get our money and become more clever by the day. Those Xtra features could prevent someone from losing hundreds to even thousands of dokk

  14. fake profile

    Verify accounts, one per phone number, black list abusers by phone number or IP address.
    Also- when blocked by scammer first- we can’t see profile to report it. Leave a window to report a profile that is suspected scammer or pic/info miner. Reach out to your tech moguls about this kind of gig and how they vet this process?

  15. Expiring photos/screenshot blocking for all users

    Expiring photos and the ability to block screenshots are safety considerations and shouldn’t be locked behind a paywall. Please include these features at the free level as well.

  16. Block the ability to screen record / screenshot video calls.

    Screen recording and screenshot of video calls should be disabled for privacy reasons.

  17. Please embed into software to verify photos are real

    Nothing is worse than being catphished on the app. I have used other dating platforms where I would have to verify the photo I’m using is actually me. It’s just nice to know I’m not putting in all that work just for someone to be fake.

  19. 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

  20. Block all users when you delete your profile/app

    When you delete your profile, it still maintains all the conversations you’ve had for the other party. They could therefore have endless access to your images, including nudes. This isn’t safe and Grindr should ensure it deleted both sides of the conversation by blocking the profiles that you have spoken with automatically as part of deleting your profile.
