  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".

  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…

  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. 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.

  8. 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!!!

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. When you have blocked someone but they can still view your profile 😠

    When you block someone, it should mean just that. They are blocked from seeing you , not blocked but can still view your profile 🤦‍♂️

  15. Make reporting spam less painful

    There are four pages to click through just to report a bot... seriously? Why even have a separate button for it "this is spam" when it does exact same thing as the "report"? Just make "this is spam" bring up a single dialog "Are you sure you want to report this user for spam?" With a checkbox already checked "include last 30 messages" and then "cancel" and "report spam" buttons... this is all you have to do and it doesn't need to be full screen either.

  16. “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…

  17. Clear my data should be an option

    As any other websites worldwide, it's proper to give your members the opinion with about any hassle and free of charging for their personal life safely. If a person is cruise got an account and after few days decided to erase it, it's their right to leave with their own history. It make Grinder looks like they care about $$ only it can be one option erase the whole "Account reset" no fancy options that for who get the membership.
    Thank you for making Grindr even better every day

  19. 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…

  20. Trackers need to be Abolished

    Stop using 500 trackers when you pay large amounts of money for paid membership. It’s a huge invasion of privacy. Despicable. If people really understood what their data I was being used for not a single person would be on this platform.
