Filter out profiles that dont show distance.
Often times bots or scammers or selling investments don't have distance. Filtering out would be handy just as current filters are handy for type, seeking,, no pics and such.

The distance displayed essentially advertises your EXACT location to every Grindr user that is logged into the app. This distance is updated every time you send a message or refresh the app. Anyone can then EASILY calculate the location of your home, work, church, bar, trick’s house (and who you probably fucked last night). This is called trilateration and it can be calculated by spreadsheet or other computer promgram that utilizes complex geodesic equations…..or very simply using FreeMapTools/Radius Around a Point and drawing circles using the distance as the radius with respect to each “center point”. The target is simply at the intercection.
Most people would actually be very uncomfortable after reading this and will likely disable their distance as well.
