MAJOR SECURITY RISK
Grindr Is a major security risk to the safeness of users and people within the community. Ever since I started using the app men have been using my images as their profile pictures to both sell drugs and suggest sexual activity. Sometimes catfishing young men and luring them to locations. I believe the only way the company can come together to solve this issue is to REQUIRE a MANDATORY security process for anyone using face picture images. I believe if you want to upload face pics to the app you must confirm your identity with a legal ID card. Men have been using my images as a means of extortion and I think this will result in many legal issues for the app which has not listened to the the reports made by me and countless other men abused by the perpetrators. This needs to be looked into as soon as possible. I’m worried for both my safety and the victims of this catfishing.
I totally agree. If you already shared a face pic on the public profile, then there shouldn't be a security risk to verify it.

we need a mechanism that users can evaluate a person as positive or negative regarding security, through a questioning and presentation of documents as a police report to avoid. If the person has a negative score, they are banned as on airbnb or uber. Thus avoiding robberies, violence, rape, drugs, pedophilia, contagious diseases, etc..

This is a segment of my latest email to Grindr Customer support. I have been particularly affected. "The ridiculous PIN you implemented gets broken anytime. Why not a password, a double factor authentication, what about end to end encryption, disappearing messages.. does that sound familiar?
Those "bad actors" as you kindly call them (and I rather reserve to my self the adjectives these "beings" deserve) do whatever they please with our accounts, our pins, our photos, our condos. And have been doing it for years" Always proud! Adrian.

THAT GRINDR GIVES THE USERS & PAYING SUBSCRIBERS NOTICE TO ALL CURRENTLY ACTIVE & ALL FUTURE UPDATES THAT ARE RELEVANT INFO & DETAILS FOR SAID USERS TO OPERATE & MAKE THE CORRECT USAGE OF THE GRINDR APP SERVICES.
THE INFORMATION & DETAILS ARE THOSE THAT DON’T POSE A SECURITY RISK , DATA SAFETY OR CLIENT CONFIDENTIALITY AS ITS SIMPLY THE SPECIFIC WORDS/PHRASES/ABBREVIATION/TERMINOLOGIES & SLANG OF WHICH GRINDR HAS RIGHTFULLY DEEMED AS BEING ILLEGAL HARMFUL ETC. COMMUNICATION IS A MAJOR FACTOR IN ANY KINDA RELATIONSHIP & SO FAR WE THE USERS ARE VOICING OUR THOUGHTS & IDEAS BUT GRINDR STILL REFUSES TO SHARE BASIC RANDOM INFORMATION OF ITS ITEMS THAT HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE BANNED LISTINGS OVER THE YEARS AS GRINDR DOES’NT NEED TO INFORM THE USERS OF ANY/ALL CHANGES TO ANY OF ITS DOCUMENTS AGREED UPON BY THE USERS AT THE CREATION OF THEIR ACCOUNTS. HOWEVER GRINDR BY NOT SHARING THE BANNED LISTS ARE CONTINUOUSLY LOSING $$, BY BANNING CURRENT SUBSCRIBERS & POTENTIAL SUBSCRIBERS CAUSE SAID USER USED A BANNED ITEM FROM THE LIST, BUT IF THE LISTS WERE SHARED THEN LESS USERS USING BANNED ITEMS WOULD BE BANNED ERGO CREATING MORE $$ FOR THE GRINDR APP & IN THE PROCESS EDUCATING THE GRINDR USERS IN NOT USING ITEMS OFF THE LISTS DEEMED AS BANNED ON THE GRINDR APP SERVICES.
THIS IS A STRAIGHT FORWARD WIN WIN FOR BOTH GRINDR USERS & THE GRINDR APP SERVICES WITH EXTREMELY VERY LITTLE INCONVENIENCE TO GRINDR APP SERVICES.

mobile Security, identity verification, and tagged accounts for those who want discretion without any questions..... safety, full disclosure, and honesty being the forefront of Grindr's bold move to encourage the LGBTQIA+ to evolve past the "people as products" cultural appropriation throughout the digiverse...it's undermining the potential our community would have had, if the breeders had not encouraged all the sassafras from our least forgiving cultural nuance's slash Pageantry of Faggotry....be proud, but grow up. It's time we taught the rest of humanity how the most rewarding lifelong characteristics of being human is the opportunity to rely upon, appreciate, grow, and nurture authentic relationships ......at times there would have been nobody for this trap hag, burnt bish, dumpster fire..... unfortunately, she knows how cruel, cold, deceitful, predacious and opportunistically depraved our community of breast fed and hand coddled narcissistic nympho-socio-psycho-selfabsorbed content-obsessed human dignity consuming zombie privacy rapists we have all become on one level or another ...all of us (all people!!!)
There's a devil of a sickness in the clueless beltching of social kindness and niceties... Behaving as a means towards using each other for the moment, fleeting and nonrenewable but the only dragon chased in life post initial virility....
We could not survive without each and every one of each other ....ugh, tho irl, 💯 absolute detriment to the species survival should "them/me" vs "me/them" continue to set the path forward as we are currently throwing our lemming souls upon by billions daily. Unequivocally, disgustingly, and just fucked off of us to never humble ourselves in the presence of the miracle that having each other, even just that one living being, to connect with is not just a gift, no accident, not and never a slight blurp coincidence in the time space dimension continuum. These are destined for you, us and me and they/them..all lifeforms deserve our utmost consciousness and presence of THOUGHTFULLY/MINDFULLY due respect, love, and patience for the positive prospect of life eternal to actualize itself in the continued creation of what is meant for all ahead....if we don't, it could be the end of the equation, a deadlock in negation.

A 4 digit pin is way too weak. A fingerprint, end to end encryption would do a better job. Tired of having my pin broken, my pictures, erased and my convos as well. Big security/privacy issues. App relaying on having the bigger piece of the market, that can't last forever.
