  1. Do not leave an in-chat notification when an unread message is unsent

    Only messages that were viewed by the recipient deserve an “unsent message” notification if they're retracted by the sender. Messages that were never opened by the recipient, however, should just disappear without a trace. This way, we subscribers can unsend typos and other unseen mistakes without causing any suspicion.

  2. 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. Return of the distance information in grid view

    I really miss the distance measurement that’s been removed from the grid view.

    It was visible when scrolling down the “Nearby”grid. It was where the “Fresh” tab is placed now. Having it back would be helpful.

    Grindr Support said I should post here and see if you agree.

    Let me know. Thanks.

  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. Add 'kink' to tribes!

    There is the leather option but that is just 1 kind of kink so it's a very narrow field. A few people use that tribe for kink but alot of people are intimidated by this because they aren't into leather and see it as "too extreme" for them. I'm surprised it hasn't already been made into a tribe if im honest!

  10. Please add polyamorous

    Please add Polyamorous to the available relationship statuses. It's quite different than "open relationship" and those of us who are in poly relationships really have no suitable option in the drop down list as none of the ones you offer accurately include the polyamorous lifestyle.

  11. cost

    The cost of Xtra and unlimited is too high. I’d like to use the paid service but the idea of paying nearly $50 a month just to find a dude to screw me is too high.

  12. 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.

  13. Stop Spam

    The huge number of spam messages on a daily basis is completely unacceptable.

    Despite numerous reports, Grindr hasn't done anything about this.

    It would be as simple as parsing all messages through a URL filter.

    Why do paying users of Grindr have to endure this?

    Plus, unlike other apps, Grindr doesn't reward users for reporting spam.

  14. Pause subscription

    For those of us XTRA/Unlimited subscribers who need to take a break from Grindr due to work-related, health-related, or relationship-related reasons, it would be helpful if we could freeze our subscription so we don’t lose the remaining time we’ve paid for. Since we can’t request refunds, at least don’t penalize us when conflicts arise in our personal life that demand us to step away from the app for a bit. You can still keep our money, just give us the option to freeze. This would be especially helpful for those of us on year-long subscriptions.
    (To prevent users from freezing…

  15. The TS/CD community needs a separate section

    I fully support the trans community but I have no sexual interest in them. There really should be a separate area where they and those attracted to them can connect. I joined Grindr because I am a man who is interested in other men and lately it seems all I am doing is blocking members who present as female and those who are searching for them…I love our trans community members, but I don’t want to be intimate with them…

  16. Spam

    Why you do not block automatically some spam messages there are always the same , containing always same website addresses like fuckguy.net, ....
    I mean what's the point for us to signal spam messages including our conversation if you fo not take any measure to stop it .
    So easy to track profiles that generates messages containing an url or something that looks like

  17. Message filter against spam

    Let us set up words and sentences, if these get send to us, we don't receive them.
    Example; the website spammers.

    Words to block; <Boyz.xyz> <FuckAvenue.com> <OnlyGuys.com> <want to earn> <I'm having a party >...

    If someone sends a message with this websites or words in them, we don't get the message.

  20. Add warning and reason for a ban

    I got banned for no reason out of the blue with no warning or explanation. I think sometimes someone just gets their feelings hurt cause I don’t respond or say I’m not interested and they report people for that. I’m not doing anything wrong but got banned. Why? Make this stop! So annoying!
