Grinder needs to make profile face pics mandatory to have a profile
Grinder needs to make profile face pics mandatory. To have a grinder profile
Exactly! It works fine on Scruff and plenty of other apps that require a face image. At the very least, it would weed out the people who play the "I'll send you my pic only if I'm interested" game. I'm not gonna go through the work of trying to get you interested, only to never see a face pic.
And for those people who think they have to remain anonymous, "on the down low," "discreet," whatever you want to call it, get real. It's now 2023, that "in the closet" crap should be done and over with.
Everyone should have a profile picture, I like to see a person before I have sex

that's all fine and good, annon
as long as you stick to only chatting up other picless people, be assured that none of this applies to you
the actual issue stems from anonymous folks going around demanding in-person-meets from those of us who do take on the risk of showing ourselves to the rest of the world — and then give us shit (or / and play games) when we ask to see what you look like, as you are able to see us
(are we 'patsies' too?)
if someone wants to gaybash you, they'll find a way—
—trust me on that
also, you can never really know when someone is out there targeting you 'anonymous' folks
you never know if you're being recorded, specifically so you can be outed later
you may fancy yourselves ᴄʀᴀꜰᴛʏ or 𝙨𝙣𝙚𝙖𝙠𝙮; but there's always someone bigger and badder than you are
Get real! Closet guys have a right to safe play! You desperate aholes wanna post my pic due to my discretion!! Nfw get a life. I suck dick and enjoy, you want to make me your Patsy if I don't let you blow me?? Get real. Be honest set real meets not bs get a fn life!
Too many fake profiles on Grindr. We need mandatory profile photos and verified identities.
I always want to see a picture, because I like to see whom I'm having sex with

Does anyone actually monitor photos these days? There are so many blatant rule breakers and yet when you upload a piece of art it gets rejected. Come on guys, too many that are not adhering to the guide lines and getting away with it
if many say scruff and other sites have face requirment, well then use that site and take a hike!! many use this site for what they want, and it works how it works!! I have not had much luck as find many blank profiles. it is what it is cant always get what you want! deal with it or leave easy!
You now require paid membership to see most pictures people send. Is this really necessary when you already have so much locked down for free members?
Ill drop this shit right now. If im forced to post my face on the internet I won't be there, and wont consider it my loss

the compromise to this suggestion is Verified Profiles
like scruff already has
this wouldn't affect the "i need my discretion" folk (we can still shun them like we always had been)..
..but this would allow us to give a justified side eye to whoever elects to remain unverified
one caveat: grindR MUST make this nudge to verify identity, both, highly visible and persistent until / unless a user accepts or rejects the proposal; and, grindR must make it difficult to accidentally dismiss the prompt
basically, all the common sense shit that we know grindR runs contrary against in its day to day operations
That's a great idea,also this should apply to other dating apps
If you make face shots mandatory, people will just use other people's face shots. This is hard to do.
The only way I've seen to make this work:
* User is requested to send 3 face shots in different settings.
* User is given a code.
* User has to write down the code, and hold it beside their face and send a selfie.
* Facial recognition verifies that the pic with the code matches the 3 previous pics.

"Unbelievable", you ARE unbelievable. What a coincidence! Stop with the tired excuses. If you have issues requiring that much privacy then find another outlet. This is why these apps suck. Too many of you come with baggage.

Allow X/U subscribers to not receive any communication, taps, etc… from unstarred profiles that have no profile pics or are mostly blank. While we might miss a gem or two in the process, it would weed out those who give no info and only send a cock pic with a single line message like “Sup” or “Suck it”. That will save us time dealing with unwanted profiles and it will incentivize those to fill out the minimum on their profile. Perhaps these blank profiles can “override” the opt out by sending a message with a minimum of characters and access to their album.

Easier research, clear point, less bullsht, no more wasted time or basic questions.
They must fill properly the profile, otherwise not to be able to use the account.
I understand alot of men are not out but I think face pics or at least a verified picture during sign up to stop scammers, homophones and pic stealers. I've noticed alot of profiles demanding face pics be presented yet they have no pics themselves
Captain Cruel commented
What they should do is verify each profile to a identification document, they can use what profile pic they want but the verified profile should be linked to a verified individual, if banks can do it I'm sure they could
A personal option for you to see profiles with only face photos will be much more like it or acceptable but to ban any and everyone that doesn't expose their face on here for whatever their reason is just wrong in my opinion
Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong!! There are too many reasons why some of us are unable to post our Face pictures for the public to see.. not just because we are ashamed of our sexuality but also holding job positions public figure on and on and on and on. Privacy should always be an option even on here, PERIOD!!!
