We need to be able to report users, even if they block us.
There are so many people who are abusive, catfishing, stealing nudes, and doing other nefarious things and getting away with it because they just block everyone once they get what they want, or once they suspect someone’s onto them. We need to be able to report them even after they block us, so we have a better chance of stopping them! Otherwise, the app is literally permitting illegal conduct to continue and refusing to offer any moderation or protection for its users, which is criminally negligent.

..so many of you don't even know grindR's management has a snowball's chance in hell of ever doing anything to meaningfully address this problem
case in point?
when was the last time you ever observed anyone, claiming to be from the grindR team, dropping by to correspond with any of us — much less, to inform us of cogent measures being taken to fix the issues?
While this might be a good idea, it is also dicey. A person who is stalking you or being insulting and nasty and you block could also report you as being the culprit

I've recently stumbled unto a guy's second account after I've reported them for threatening to HURT, ABUSE AND MURDER ME.
They've now since blocked me, and even though that keeps me far from them, I can't be sure that I can keep them far from me.
I am very new to the scene and this type of enabling is very disheartening since apparently it's been available to specific countries and regions for quite sometime now.
I dont know the feature or project rollout timeline over on Grindr headquarters but these measures-- safety measures-- should've been expedited and available to everyone from its initial conception.

We should always be able report and block them to...no one should be harassing anyone on the gays web the lord's website my guys website
Idem banni pour avoir refusé de couché avec un moche il m'a dénoncer par délation et on nous demande rien n importe qui peut faire bannir un autre profil juste en le signalant
I'm currently being harassed by a prostitute I turned down.
He's messaged me from three different profiles tonight, all of them with the same pics uploaded.
I managed to report and block two, the other he blocked me before I had a chance.
According to the support website, if I go to settings there is a setting called 'report a recent chat' where I can report someone who has blocked me and attach the chat if it was within 24 hours.
This is outright untrue, I have the latest version of Grindr and there is no such option anywhere in the settings. I cannot report a profile that has sent me abuse and then blocked me.
This still needs support. This is a great idea. So many fakes on here now and they need to be named as shamed. Ive created a 2nd account to call them out and report them
I posted the same things, but come to nothing. Grindr dont care!
It's not like the Block feature works, so this is kind of pointless.

Not just harrasing, but it happens to me to say someone who first contacted me that i am not interested (nothing else) and then receive something like 'i am not either, you are too fat' and then block you, without being able to report this hate behaviour

A lot of people are frustrated because they don't have answers which causes them to react badly and report people's accounts, that's why I suggest more control on reporting because a lot of people are banned for nothing because of some frustrated people

More words in report to explain the situation
And an attached image becouse you can only see the last 30 conversations.

Feel like the block button needs to have a report part to it even if you dont need to report them cause im always blocking fake people on here but forget to report them and its to late by then
Often times creepy & even predatory users who lurk on Grindr will send messages that very clearly break Grinder's ToS without any regard for their action. Usually this comes in the form of an extremely disrespectful & even sexually harassing message; and more often than not by the time you reject their advances or decline their approach they switch into a flood of malicious messages before blocking you so you can't report them. This appears to be a major flaw on Grindr as it allows abusive behavior to run rampant without much consequence to the person violating Grindr rules. All users should still be able to access their messages with a blocked user for the purpose of filing reports as needed. For example, I have screenshots of abusive messages I've received and before I can report them, I've been blocked and the other person gets away Scott-free. I seriously hope Grindr considers implementation of better ways to prevent this kind of abusive behavior on their platform or allows users to still access DMs to file a necessary report.
How can I get support. The performance of the app totally sucks. I try to block and nothing happens. Blocked users come back again. What am I paying for? I really hope someone has an alternative app.

All grindr users should be able to report people who have blocked you.
The reason being is because a death threat was just made against me and dude blocked me before I could report him and normally I'd just let this be blown off but he literally has my address it's stupid how I cant have the app and feel safe. And i know some of yall are thinking just uninstall the app...:/ well I dont want to do that I've meet really amazing people on there and I dont want this one guy pooping on my parade so if someone that works for grindr sees this please get in contact ik his profile and name.
If a person page is reported shouldn't both parties be suspended until the investigation is done? This racist guy is mad I won't sleep with him. And reports my page everytime he finds me. And Grindr makes me pay for it.
Getting very frustrated by people using this app saying they wanting to hook up and getting address details saying they coming over and then they block and chats history gone. There should be someway that grindr can track them once reported and if it’s an ongoing behaviour of there’s the they get banned.

Hold tap on profile photo and show more options, without access profile. Could block, report, hide profile etc
Paige Chang commented
This is exactly what I joined this forum to post. I get so many picture collectors daily, demanding pictures who catfish and block immediately, and it would be nice to be able to report these losers.
