As with most dating/hook-up apps there is an option to make your account and the photo you have uploaded to be verified.
I strongly campaign for Grindr to have this feature in place as this would help users alike to know if the person they are conversating with are actually real.
This feature would stop users from ideally being catfished by whomever wishes to use a fake photograph.
This feature is also a great safety hazard in the event of a user being asked to ‘meet up’ or ‘have fun’ and then meeting up with someone whom is portentally dangerous and could possibly harm the user whom is genuine and not the imposter.
Another add on to this suggestion is to have a register verification date attached to the profile. Along with this, if support have been notified that a person is fake, and on numourous accounts the user in question has made different accounts within a set time period - the users IP address should either be suspended for a set time period or be permanently banned without proper I.D. information.
