Extortion and blackmail as a result of cat fish unverified accounts
Grindr, to the best of my knowledge, is the only platform of its kind that does not verify users. Now I acknowledge that Grindr will not confirm this, but at least 25% of all active accounts are troll/cat fish accounts that are on the platform for the sole objective of masking their identity to lure legitimate users in, only to steal our (sometimes intimate) personal property. I've been extorted and blackmailed not to mention that due to the fact that Grindr hasn't made the slightest bit of progress on this major issue, there is a major erosion of trust and I can't help but wonder why things that (for the most part) nobody cares even the slightest about (such as cookies) are being pushed whereas the overwhelming majority has been demanding this for years. Although I'd love for every user to be required to post a verified photo of themselves, I realize that this wouldn't be received well so I'd be satisfied if Grindr created their own internal process where upon registration of a new account, ID is verified. This provides users with their autonomy while ensuring the safety and mutual respect of other users.
