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
None of your Beeswax! commented
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!!!

Allow filters to work in both directions. If I set a filter to see only profiles with face pics, then the profiles without face pics shouldn't be able to see or contact me either.
mandatory face pics
Bubba Feilds commented
All guys required to post a pic plus fill in all the stats
Steve Runquist commented
Online now and Photos only need to be basic filters otherwise the app is unusable. I may come back and pay again someday and the advanced features are nice though the extra should also really include the ability to tap and message people who just viewed you and maybe expand to say the previous hour not just three. I understand marketing wants to up sell these crucial features and moderation is more expensive with some the most premium features but the ads are already more than enough of a pain when they freeze up the app and it has to be restarted, which shouldn’t be either, to push people into the extra level. Photos only is a matter of safety and there is no use in seeing who isn’t online if half of those who show aren’t using the app.

Users must have a profile pic. My grid seems to be filling up with pic-less profiles whats the point in having an app if no one puts their pic or a profile?
Russell James Houston commented
There should be a option not allow your profile to be seen by any profile that’s blank, or faceless , and pics not of any person. Because I have a ex that stalks me on Grindr with blank profiles. So I have to block any blank profile because it might be them. It would be nice to just not allow my profile to appear to anyone who won’t show there face.
Mohamed Abdelfattah commented
Please make the photo moderation faster .. it takes alot of time
Not really necessary
You have to respect peoples privacy, if you don't like you don't have to look.
Brice Kurtz commented
I would prefer to put what I'm interested in & only people with that criteria be able to view my profile.
No picture/ face picture less profiles.
No one under the age or above an age range.
No one under or above a certain height.
Just a few examples^
I believe it would eliminate my need to block or ignore people. Creating a platform that feels more inclusive & positive for many.
I paid for Unlimited but still feel myself doing all the work to find what I'm looking for.
I bet more people would be willing to spend the money if weeding out all the unwanted connections wasn't necessary*
