Stop using popup ads and redirects
Stop using pop-up ads and forcing redirects on people it ruins the whole user experience.
Your new pop app adds, don't let you exit without exiting the app even if you wait for it to end.

We get it, this is a business that needs to make money but these new ads that totally consume your phone for a good 30 sec are a little overboard and are pissing your customers off. I get we can always pay to have no ads (if rates were realistic) There are plenty of other apps just like this one (Scruff ect) STOP THE BULLSHIT GRINDR!
The new ads are extremely annoying and I don't pay attention to them one bit. All your ads suck but I'd rather have the non-aggressive ads that don't automatically pop up the play store. If you're trying to make free Grindr unbearable so we pay it's not working. Scruff is free and sniffies is actually worth paying for. You should take some tips from them.

Im here to complain about this too. If we can't easily block all these fake profiles that are rampant on Grindr, I'm going back to scruff.
In addition, if there are this many trans profiles out there - is that not proof they should and COULD HAVE started their own app instead of hijacking the gay men's one?
Let us block people so we can use the app.

I understand the app needs funding from ads, but you took away the close button and you have to shut down the entire app and repoen to avoid that add... Less ads please
Rob Dickson commented
Please don't show video ads or any kind of popup ads.
I think some banner ads here and there is enough.

Ads ads ads, plus membershop too high, why not weekend introdictlry deals, more tags for us heeyjens. Plus not enough space to share likes

How about you fix the problem with it freezing up and going white blank screen when you click on the x to close it. Only app that seems to have the problem, so if you want me to pay for the premium membership then you better make the basic free membership work right like all the other apps do. This bs just started a couple days ago & a couple more I will delete this piece of shit. Thank you. Stacy

Remove the war game ads please with current situation in Ukraine 🇺🇦
I have a small screen phone.
The advertising on the chat page, is a big problem.
After I write 3 lines, I can no longer see or touch, the send button.
And, the APP is buggy !
Please put the Ads somewhere else ?!
And, the Ads are about Christmas ... so, silly !

Never will I ever download one of the cheeky games from grindr. Ya boy isn't there to play games. So to have an ad totally disrupt my message, like an ad right in the middle of me typing, is by far the most infuriating experience. Like, have the ads I guess, could they be any amount less annoying?
I understand that the block feature is unlimited now, but it is very tiring to always receive a double ad after each usage it.
At times there is even that type of ad that won’t go away after 5-10 sec if you don’t interact with it.
And I understand the need to get revenue in order to support the platform and keep it free for all, but it’s becoming tiresome.
If other features would be in place to help prevent stalkers or problematic users that create fake accounts and spam you 24/7, then I wouldn’t have an issue with 1 block = 1 ad, because I won’t use it at all.
Instead why not make the first 10-15 blocks per day (or whatever number is more optimal, based on statistics and country relevance) ads free, after which you get the ads per each block you do.
At this point, grindr is more of a promotional platform for ads than an app. for socializing and meeting people.
The advertisement was such a pain in the ass. Eventhough I will carefully scroll not to touch the ad but it will just automatically popped up it's so annoying and frustrating are you guys so desperate to earn some coin to compromise your member convenience to use the app. Please fix this ASAP

It would be nice if free users could get access to more profiles by viewing an ad or doing a mechanical turk action etc...like view one ad and 6 profiles at the bottom are now accessible
Scott Spector commented
Adding it to the top is ANNOYING - gonna make me delete the app before I pay for it.

Advertising is fine and necessary for a free app. But the ads make sounds when the phone is silent, they take you to the app store even if you close them. In short, they are very annoying and cause you to close the app every time they appear.
David Mas commented
Allow remove ad with one click, not various steps like with that annoying game ad.

Im located in thailand and ive been a constant user of this app and lately i notice and its getting a burden is this ads going so aggressive on this app, I mean i understand this app needs ads for it to thrive but latey it has been aggressive that everytime i pass through it or when i see an adpost in every part of the app it redirects me to the browser or google play to download their app and its not cool ive been constantly and im not even clicking those ads, just redirect me automatically to their website or google play. And from time to time it happen it crashes my phone

If y'all could fuck off with these ads that'd be great. Also, no one cares about drag. Fuck that disgusting liberal shit
