Users should be notified of/have the ability to block other users from non-consensual screenshots of the photos we send, our chats, and our profiles.

Taking screenshots and screen recording should be strictly blocked while one is using grindr.

Any pictures shared on the app should be private the same way the temporary one are. Don’t allow anyone to screenshot them at all. Protect peoples privacy.
Shane Visneski commented
I would just like to see there be some kind of privacy setting on the app so that conversations and pictures cannot be screenshot
Currently a user cannot screenshot expiring photos and album photos. But there is no such protection for recorded videos (15 seconds) and for live chat (video calls). Grindr will become the safest platform if the recorded and live video chats are also protected from screen recording just the way expiring photos and albums are protected.

I know Grindr can implement features that block off explicit content from being downloaded or screenshotted, but why can’t they do the same for videos that aren’t in albums? Really there shouldn’t even be the option to send content that isn’t blocked. Would make me feel a lot more safe sending videos to know they can’t be screen recorded and shared, or at least to be able to upload videos from my camera roll so that there’s more control

Disable all screenshots inc video calls full stop to protect all users from cyber crime! Identity theft if a major issue and the sharing of private photos is of grave concern. Ban screenshots full stop!

Why not ask for screen shots for proves of violation of guidelines most people report because of hate dislike of the person to be fair
In the profile information, display the date the account was registered and / or how many accounts the user operates from an IP address - this will ensure that the account is genuine.
Also, do not allow screenshots to be uploaded to the album - this will prevent the number of identity thefts.
These few simple points would radically change, increase security in the application.
The elaboration and implementation of these points is important - unfortunately it is unenjoyable in several countries for these reasons Grindr.
A captcha for the registration and login form would not hurt.
When people request for pictures and then suddenly block you, they now might have screenshot of anything you've sent them and we can't report them for this behavior because they just blocked us so our pictures might be randomly roaming online now
I tried to screenshot my message to check whether this app restrict the screenshot function. Turned out it doesn't restrict it. I'm very afraid that the screenshot photo is used to make fake profile, misused for something illegal and also for safety reasons. And also these era is where deepfake is exist. I don't want to become a victim of fraud and identity theft. Also our picture can be searched on google using google picture. So I hope the developers add the screenshot restriction to keep our privacy secured.

Pls make the grinder app to prevent taking screenshots of DP and chats of the person and don't allow forwarding msg functions ..so that people will not be able to share other persons pic... thankyou

Please blur all screenshots taken inside the app, not only expiring photos and albums.
I believe any kind of screenshot inside the app should be prohibited, including the grids, chats, profiles and non-expiring pictures.

During video calls other user can save screenshot of video call. It is a very basic threat to our privacy and safety. During video call disable all screenshots and screen recording options for both users. Or we can provide an option if other guy can take a screenshot of mine video call or not.

The lockable albums on the bio cause the bios screens to freeze so you cannot look at the whole bio of a person. This happens on the lockable albums and seems to lock the whole profile.
Spo Tify commented
There can be made an option which blocks screenshots while in the app, to make more secure environment for the Grindr users. It is just like when we use Google Chrome in Incognito mode, No Screenshots and No Screencaptures allowed! I will put a photo of what is supposed to happen. Thank you for your attention!

Disable screenshots. Other apps do it I don’t know why Grindr has not figured it out.

Je to pre bezpečnosť všetkich lebo sa tam posielaju aj Intivne Fotografie !!!!!
Please please prevent people from screenshots on photos sent. Somehow. I’ve had way too many stupid mean guys steal my pictures & use them. One even accidentally sent my own face picture to me!!!
