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
Kristian Bitong commented
Having to click every blank profile (no name/profile pic) just to see if it's someone else gets tedious. There should be a way, similar to adding notes, to get an idea right away whose blank profile I'm eye-ing without having to click on their profile. Just some quality of life things

I do not think it's fair that people who do not have profile pictures are allowed to view photos of the rest of us. That's stalking. It's also not fair that they get to densely populate the search results while YOU rape us by charging us for protection like your the Mafia
It's not right and it in no way shape form or fashion exhibits Grindrs commitment to keeping us safe
If someone has not uploaded a face pic, they should not be able to view profiles with face pics. Your platform is encouraging creeper and stalking behavior. If someone uploads a pic that isn't a face pic, they should only be able to view profiles of a similar exposure. If no pic is uploaded at all, that user should only have access to pic less profiles. If you can implement a feature to filter for profiles with albums, you can implement a feature that promotes fairness and safety.
Here is the 1tip before meeting someone face to face , that can probably save your life from a hijack , video call the person see if they real
Face only and online now filters should be basic filters and not advanced filters.
I'm gay not desperate. I keep hitting the limit to the amount of profiles I can see for free before finding anyone suitable. Because there is a sea of people that are hiding their face cause they are either not great looking or closeted.
Online only needs to be basic as well. If you are looking for some company you can't find anyone because there is a sea of off-line profiles to get through first. Why would I want to message people who I know aren't going to respond during the time I am available?
Between the two its impossible to find anyone suitable. I just keep hitting the view limit without finding a single person to message.
Make a free filter that only lets men with pics 50 miles or less away be able to tap or message
That filters out all others
If they don't want to put their face up then make a category for only the face not shown to be in that category that way they can all be together until they change their mind and put their face on there it's a good incentive

The option of not showing blank profiles should return as a free feature for the app.
Currently both options of only showing profiles with a face picture or with any picture are only allowed to XTRA members, though they were both introduced for all users during their testing. Having a way of hiding blank profiles provide a simple convenience and extra safety for using the app. Since recognizing face pictures requires a harder development effort it'd be acceptable to be allowed for XTRA members only. Nobody's obliged to fill any pictures in their profiles if they wish so just as much nobody should be obliged to keep having blanked profiles all around while checking the app.
Strongly suggest adding the ability to block messages from either faceless profiles or profiles without pictures. I spend more time deleting messages from profiles that are either closeted, liars, or scammers. Most of these (but not all) come from profiles without pictures. Most Grindr users state they won’t respond to these profiles so why not just add the ability (perhaps to extra subscribers) to block these.

The hole point of a profile is to let people know what u look like . Your body structure. Things about you and so forth. But people don't fill them out and it's annoying. Everyone should have to fill there profile out completely or they get flagged and can't use the site.
It should be mandatory that before you can join the community online you need to have a reasonable pic of yourself available
Block people with blank profiles from hitting up people with pictures on their profile. Please stop the madness. It is irritating as hell. Blank profiles should only be able to see and interact with other blank profiles.
Kelsey Adams commented
I don't think so, because anyone like myself from a small town doesn't want to put their face on there for confidentiality. everyone here knows me, and I don't want my face on any profile for them to be bullying criticizing, or any other kind of of harassment. and that's exactly what it would be
Juan Perez commented
It's absolutely respectable to not show anything in the profile, but it also absolutely abusive to take advantage of others not doing that, and probable stealing pictures.
Eric Lively commented
If your going to have a complete blank profile then you should only be able to see other blank profiles.
raver thanever commented
Users should have an option not to be visible in search of blank profiles at all or should have the option to block all blank profiles within let’s say 5 miles ratio with a click of a single button. Blank profiles are most often REALLY DODGY and they should either not be allowed at all or should be limited to seeing only other blank profiles though.

A toggle option to Hide from being seen or Block Profiles Without A Human Picture automatically.

I'm so tired of having to ask people for face pics. It's EXHAUSTING. It actually deters me from using the app. Right or wrong people make the decision of whether or not they want to talk to someone based on immediate appearance and the sea of faceless accounts that make up most of the app are honestly just not worth digging deeper into , especially when getting a face pic out of alot of them is like pulling teeth and ends up being a waste of time.
Main Profile Picture is taken via the camera on the smartphone, must be a head shot, this will unlock free albums and additional profile pictures and bio under existing free membership.
*If the user chooses not to upload a live photo and verify the profile,
A blank avatar picture and NO bio or details, all chats and photos shared are deleted automatically every 24 hours, - completely anonymous.
Profile public review's, this will put an immediate stop to bullying, abuse, transfobia and so on.
If a user can see comments from other users (comments deleted automatically every 30 days )on the persons genuine authenticity, humour or if they are homophobic and so on, it's will do two things,
1. Comments in a drop down box with fixed multiple options e.g looked like pictures, sense of humour, made eye contact when chatting.
These key things are very hard to fake and are very important abilities and emotions to show to make the guest comfortable around you .
2. Gradually people will chat less with the known fake profiles or aggressive behaviour and harrassment towards anyone and are less likely to engage or tap the profile,
This way men can feel safer meeting someone, Trans can feel safe meeting a person knowing they are trans and not transphobic, and so on..
Removing gender, pronouns, age these are the cause of conflicts, by publicly having that information available, anyone with a different opinion are creating a unsafe platform for people to express how they feel without being judged.
It will also force people to engage in actually conversation.
I understand for filter and stats etc you need this information simply turn off it's visibility to viewers...

Can you make it where there is always at least a dummy profile picture? I don't want to start a chat with somebody that I can't see anything about. I would like to at least be able to see their profile text.
