Block someone after they block you
A lot of users play games, then block you. How about an option to block them as well, AFTER they block you? This way they can't unblock you and then start again with a new pic or profile.
No, You got this wrong.
The rule should be that when somebody blocks you they cannot do s o if they have sent you the last message without your being able to reciprocate. This will stop people sending abusive messages and instantly blocking you.
Also it will prevent those with criminal attempt being able to kill the evidence by blocking....
Indeed, when someone blocks you they should not delete your conversations with them. I had someone with clear criminal intent. He slipped because when I google a phone number he gave me I got onto his trail. However when he got wind of it he blocked me and all the evidence was wiped out. What is in my inbox is my property away but this is an area which currently favours the malicious and needs addressing.
When being blocked the profile should remain viable so you can still report herasment for fake accounts... Quite often when you catch them out they block you before you can report.

Heartfelt from a paying customer...It's sad that Grindr continues to ignore this issue. Revenue before anything i guess. How about Grindr actually implements a bidirectional block feature so that both parties can never find each other again if one blocks the other? Your platform as it is actually enables abusers...unless your decision makers get off on this type of behavior? The law doesn't prevent you from internally using IMEI or other unide device ID numbers for verification purposes in your app. Yet it's 2021 and all you've done is increase the subscription cost. From one dev to another (if you even read these comments) please implement this basic feature to reduce the daily abuse occuring on your app, i guarantee you it's a relatively simple update. It's just a matter of time before another life is taken because your app enables cowards to hide behind a veil only Grindr controls. Imo your user agreement better account for this loophole... otherwise I can smell a future legal scandal.

Yes the games are the worst part.. it jades users
Being able to block those whom block you would reduce the chances of being unblocked by that user and harassment proceeds. This is a huge 😳 concern of mine and being taunted on the day to day basis. Yes I have constantly escalated the situation but it never gets resolved. Plus those catfishers, or low self esteem issue individuals delete and/or create new accounts to purposely harass others. There's a thing in schools to catch a pet and how long you can hold them on your leash, these pets are gay men via dating apps. Disallow rooted devices, prevent GPS spoofing, IMEI, DID/ECID/CID/Serial #, UUID and so on. This has already caused 7 deaths this past two months because of how cruel these kids and some adults are pulling off on your platform. You have now been alerted regarding this matter.

Absolutely those are the people who have stated hatred and evil gestures and then they are set free!
I get quite a few hate messages, I suspect from the same person due to the patter they follow. They send me a hate message or tell me they are going to burn my house down, and then immediately block me. I can very briefly view their message, but never long enough to take a screenshot or go to their profile to report them. Due to this sort of loophole, people can harass me and I can't do anything about it. I don't know why I haven't just moved on a ditched the app for good, but I'm getting pretty close.
i swear grindr tolerates this sort of hate and won't do ANYTHING about it. hope this feature happens
Someone just called me the hard r and a lot of other slurs that nobody would be ok with and blocked me and I was gonna report him. He’s going to do it to other people for sure. Just wish I could have reported him somehow but the profile disappeared right after he sent it
The person who blocks someone owes his profile while he can unblock it. When someone is blocked both profiles should not be reachable ever anymore. That's not fair the person who blocks can control the person blocked.
In a way, the person who blocks someone owns the blocked person, because he can unblock them whenever he likes. When someone is blocked, both profiles should not be reachable ever again. It's not fair the person who blocks can control the person blocked.
