Other apps have verification. Scruff is a good one using it.

Making Grindr a safe place is a priority for the LGBTI community, the idea is to merge the app with the health care providers, making the app safer for all users.
In case someone is having a health issue like any STD, or Covid-19, is to disable temporary the user account till he gets better, in order to stop spreading any disease between the app users.

This needs to happen. I’m like seconds away from cancelling my expensive subscription bc I keep getting played by fake people on here and it’s NOT COOL.
Grinder should also have seperate rooms to go to instead of having to browse for hrs to find a few good men lolol. Put the bears n leather daddy's in a group, twinks n muscles, cd's n trans in a group that way if you like bears you know exactly where to go n save a lot of time n aggravation!

On behalf Malaysia/Asia - verification WILL SAVE lives. As most state laws are *extremely medieval , non reported cases today are alarming fearing for their lives, both within the LGBTQ+ & social community. Implementation of this request will provide a safer space & heal us in the long term. Pls take this feature suggestion as my personal cry for mercy , given personal-past trauma. Thanking TeamGrindr in advance.

I guess as trans I generate a good amount of clicks but honestly im so sick to get scammed by fake accounts at least once a week, and then I feel sad as an authentic and long-term user of grindr... Sorry guys but if u don't fix this and don't offer a verification to be safe i gonna leave that app and stay with other providers.. i rly like grindr but not in the way to get betrayed over and over again... Very very sad

Put a verified person role to avoid fake profiles

Have users take a photo(of face) using the app and permissions for use of camera. To verify they are a real person. For the discreet users they must verify but do NOT have to upload a public face picture but will be able to show they are verified. Heres the easier option for age verification along with identity is having the user upload a government issued photo ID, this will definitely prevent underage user and scam/fake accounts and adding the "take a selfie" will work as an extra verification.

Deberían hacer una regla obligatorio sobre los análisis VIH ,SIFILIS la mayoría miente y está trasmitiendo la enfermedad y lo más malo es que no dicen el 70% de la comunidad está enferma de alguna y no dicen la very
Bee, great idea! Obviates the need to use problematic privacy violating gov't ID.

Its fine to do a face verification. But, if you think verification using a state ID would be a good thing… You are out of your mind. Lmao dont think Grindr needs you anyways. Also, your probably ugly and thats why you get ghosted. Stop hooking up or showing interest in minors/little boys and you wouldn’t have a problem! 🤦🏻♂️🖕🏻

I totally agree. Green pass + Identity Card.

Fake GPS not working on Grindr
Are you a scammer? They already use this which isn't safe or secure.

Just a option to filter current HIV AIDS STD status
1000%. This is an easy way to foster more care among our community without exposing anyone to retaliation or shame. In fact, this would be a game changer in the arena of STI contact tracing and treatment.
1) Allow users to log a hookup with another user (a simple tap of a button on their profile). This will log the date of the encounter
2) If a user is diagnosed, have an area of the app that lets them easily notify all users they had sexual contact with backdated to their last STI test.
3) Notify STI clinics of this feature and encourage doctors to discuss this feature with patients
After you hookup with someone you should have a list were you can put their info of when and what you did. This makes contact tracing easy for if you contract an STI.

Also to add with that could there be a Age verification by submitting a State Issued photo ID? There’s a lot of minors that are users.
