Prevent multiple accounts per device
There’s a pretty consistent horror of blocking somebody and having them create a new account to come and berate you all over again.
I believe Grindr should be a safe space, and creating a one-to-one relationship between the device and the user profile should help minimise bullying on the platform by better enforcing blocks.
Other considerations: email address verification, or a minimum phone number sign up verification step. I’d also argue that members can only have 1 Grindr account per identity provider and that deleting an account creates a 30 day delay until they can re-create it.

Absolutely agree with Will H. I've trying to prevent a guy -who I had met before- to contact me again, as he appears to refuse respecting my decision of not talking anymore. There's no way to achieve it as he just keep on sending me messages from one account after another one that I have previously blocked...and it's over and over. I've already asked for help to grindr support and hopefully they will help me to find a solution kind of reasonable. Thanks.
I agree with Paul. Maybe even just a 48 hour wait time for signing in/out different accounts on the same device. It would cut down on lots of monkey business. Jackd uses/used this feature, linking accounts to device IDs.
Good ideas. +1
I'd suggest 7 days amnesty is enough for the delay so people in real situations are not excluded too long from recreating their profile.
