Give users a warning first before banning
Grindr should give users a warning first before banning
How would you like to be falsely accused of something you didn’t do
The police can easy do a background check on your phone and on Grindr banned account
Just got banned last night. I have followed rules, stayed kind to even those I don't want to interact with, and was building a friendship but now I can't continue that friendship. There was no warning for my ban, and my device is blocked so I can't even make a new account. Support is also very slow to get back to me after an initial email to prove its my email.
I hot banned as well, and I had to start a new account. Was too happy at all!
Grinder team should be fair with everyone and should investigate the issue.
I got banned, I did absolutely nothing wrong. As far as I know. Why would Grindr block you without getting the whole truth. The facts. There are more liars than honest people. I constantly delete my Grindr profile to always start a new one fresh with new chats. So I can’t say when I started my profile, and who remembers that anyways. If a person sign up for Grindr they should put “remember this day, you might need it” or something. I have all the proof I need. Should I bring this matter to court or something.

Well I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one that was banned and not been told why? It's absolutely something rude and nuts not to tell somebody why they're banned. It's like Craigslist you get flagged and then I'll tell you why they sell you to go read the rules I mean it's so stupid every time I post an ad somebody flags it and this is just as stupid banning somebody and not telling them it was probably an honest mistake. The only conclusion I came with is I was asking gay men if they needed a room which I was renting I have rooms that I rent and I thought that would help the gay community to put it there I don't think it's a business because they say you have to let them know if he's selling or something I don't know I wasn't selling anything renting a room. But I do enjoy squirt. Org they have came to cam which is nice and video chat rooms and I mean a lot of nice people there. I guess when you own Grindr and tinder and God knows what other sites it's not enough people to run your business efficiently. And why are women on the site I just read a comment that's supposed to be gay men and by men and sometimes I see women on there I know the transgender but they shouldn't be there. That's how I feel about other things too women trying to break into every male thing they want to be on the male baseball games baseball teams basketball teams I mean it's ridiculous they have their own teams females only but then they got to come in busting on the baseball teams and the football teams I don't understand why men cannot just have their own teams nothing to do that were better than you or not it's men like to be together like men and women like to be with women that's why they call it brunch who's lunch anyway that's another story but I'm glad to see a lot of people aggravated for the same reason I thought I was alone I did write it repeal and then they said I had to show proof in this and that I said you know it's ridiculous it's a website I have no documentation I don't even know why I was banned other than possibly renting rooms so anyway my rants done.
This has not started. Grindr did not give me a warning before banning me. I don’t even know why I got banned. This isn’t fair. I believe that I should be able to have my Grindr back.
I recently got banned because a black guy called me a ugly old man just cuz I said hi to him
I Said you are Agist , then he calls me a karen .I said that’s no different then me calling you a N er then he called me a racist
The next day I got banned . Grindr didn’t do anything about his hateful comment he gaslighted me . I said to Grindr in my appeal why would I try to get with a black guy if I was racist? And I sent them pics of my closet friends who just happen to be you guessed it Black . Grindr apologized to
Me and unbanned me. If they had asked me what happened first I wouldn’t of been banned . Some people are so rude . :(

Perhaps Grindr might discourage splenetic, biggoted and threatening, rants.
For example KapitalLetterKunt refers to transgender people as "confused morons, half witted abominatopns, twats, fuc*ing abominations, Satan, Devil etc". These ravings are reminiscent of "Mein Kampf".
Would writing similarly about Blacks, Jews, women etc., be tolerated? If a staight person referred to gay men in similar fashion they could be prosecuted.
It's depressing, not to mention ironic, to read such hatred from a homosexual, whose brethren, albeit unfairly, are dispised by billions. What's even more dispiriting is that Grindr seems ambivilent.
Seriously Grindr get a f@cking grip already b4 we all or most of us leave you in disgust.
Also since we r discussing banning then why the F aren't you barring trannies and fake str8 men from this site?
Getting really fed up with them here and really angry with you, I thought this is 4 gay/bi men?!
Don't want to see confused morons and half witted abominations when I'm looking for MEN! there r at least 4 sites for trannies in the UK alone.
Really angry about this. Each to their own as they say so go stick to your own last thing I wanna see is some twat who is not here for men wtf is he doing on gay chat? Those f@cking abominations remind me of Bathometh, otherwise known as Satan, Devil etc tits and cock f@cking gross to be forced to deal with it in a gay chat site
GRINDR u should be sued
I mean your own rules state banning for impersonation
Those pharmaceutically induced and psychologically confused demons are impersonating females, so according to your own rules they should be banned
I swear this will end ugly for u Grindr u taking the piss
Excellent point Grindr. Outright banning without giving the alleged 'rulebreaker' an opportunity to explain their alleged actions is just plain stupid and bad service from your non existent customer services. Grindr app and customer services especially paid subscriptions us getting really bad not that it ever was good. You're going to start losing your main base soon if you carry on with this uncaring attitude. Bloody idiots!
I agree 282828% no communication, no explanation why you are banned! this should have been taken in consideration since the begging
Epic Zackry commented
Hells yes! They don’t look into any conversation thread(s) and more than half the time people falsely report misuse just to be an assclown.

I I agree with you fully
Grindr doesn't care about " privacy" in January 2021 this year GRINDR was fined $ 10 million US
for sharing private and personal information with their advertisers
I am a paying customer. I just got banned and no reason given. I filled in a form to request for the reason. All i got back was an automated reply back that due to privacy & safety reasons you will not give me the reason. It is my account, so what privacy? I still do not know what i did wrong and therefor defend myself or ask for prove of your findings. Again, this is how you treat your paying customers.
I have been banned a couple of times for no apparent reason at all. We really deserve feedback if we are violating community standards so we can learn. But i didn't so much as say anything offensive

This is my want also dont banned account
The vast majority of bans aren't for something that the police would get involved in so I'm not sure what the point of the sentence 'the police can easily do a background check on your phone and a Grindr banned account' actually is.
As a police officer I can tell you categorically that we cannot easily do mobile phone checks; for a start it's expensive so the offence has got to justify it. Secondly we need authorisation under the Regulation of investigatory powers act, which isn't easily obtained. Thirdly, I personally have tried many times to engage with Grindr in relation to assaults that have occurred following a Grindr meet up and because they are based in the USA we have absolutely no power to request data from them. They always insist on a court order from a US court so invariably we cannot get evidence from Grindr.
I know none of this relates to the whole blocking issue, but users need to understand the risks of using the app for hook ups and the fact that the police do not have a magic wand to trace people or secure data especially if it's data that is stored outside of the UK. We can't even access EU data since brexit.
I find it absolutely mind blowing that Grindr users are complacent with catfish, minors, baiters, bots and spammers. Yet Grindr took this suggestion and put it in the works. Search catfish, bots and spammers. I bet someone has a brilliant idea. I’ve been catfished twice. Met up with them once and was gay bashed by two straight guys who used false identities. It’s easy to not be banned. Don’t be a d@ck, sell drugs, prostitute. Pretty much don’t do anything you wouldn’t tell a cop about.
Absolutely, I believe there is nothing wrong with my old account profile that was banned and I was 100% meek and mild ,so willing to look at it, cooperate and change whatever the offense might have been!!! But first of all Grindr wouldn't even reply to me and still hasn't! Which is terrible customer service! Secondly, who exacyly does Grindr think they're teaching/helping?? Nobody is benefitted by the way you are currently disciplining offenses.
if I don't even have a clue what subject my offense is about, how the he'll am i supposed to think about it and learn from it but also prevent it from happening again????
** BTW that was 5 months ago, still not even a reply!
I agree. The first time I was banned, it was because grindr falsely thought I was a bot and I waited a couple of days afterward to follow up because I was so confused about what I had done.
