Allow mock locations, please!
If you happen to live in an isolated rural area, having the ability to place yourself in a town or more populated área with the help of a mock GPS allows you to connect with a variety.of people whom you may meet later when the opportunity arises.
I see nothing wrong with using mock locations. It harms no one and it can help a lot. It is a way to meet people from different places. In places where gay people are persecuted a mock GPS may be a life saver!
Why adding unnecessary restrictions and prohibitions?
Please, allow mock locations, It harms no one and it adds usefulness to Grindr.
There are mocking location apps you can download on Google maps and use that
Why would you want to mock your location and you may appear closer or further than you really are stop with the mock location bull shit I don't want you to lie to me about your location when you send me your location and Google maps says you are 30 miles away when Grindr says your 18 mile away why do you want to wast someones time bull shit are you trying to make grinder suck

Though I think mock locations are good for people living in rural areas, it can be abused by catfish, scammers, spammers, etc. I have experienced this personally. I think restrictions or limits need to be kept in mind... perhaps allow a person only to change locations a couple times a week or increase the number of profiles a free account can look up on a day. Or offer a wider variety of membership packages with certain features varying in these packages. Fake profiles are a HUGE problem in Grindr and my biggest complaint with this app.
Mock location is for stocking people don't do it
Stop lying about your location if I was to hit you up and we decided to hook up and grinder location showed you not to far away from me and you sent me your location and Google maps says you're further than grinder says you think I'm going to drive to you think again when you send your location we will find out how far you really are don't lye about your location what the fuck it will be a waste of time and mock location is dangerous you can stock people i have actually stalk people with mock location before just to see if it could be done and yes it can you can seriously stalk people with mock location grinder will have lawsuits if someone gets hurt

Do not allow mock location why do you want to lie about your location Grindr will say your 18 miles away from someone and when you send your location to someone to hookup your really 30 miles away when you send your location and the person gets your location and looks it up with Google maps to drive to your house and Google maps says you're 30 miles away you really think the person going to come over think again don't lie about your location and you can also stock people with mock location it would be a bad move on Grindrs part if someone gets murdered because of mock location grinder can get sued and shut down Mark location is a bad idea very dangerous

It's called explore you don't physically have to be at a location that you're really aren't because I know people like me who don't like for people to waste their time why the hell would you say you're someone that you're not where you can just easily go browse and look there you don't have to lie that you're there when you're not there you in a rural area have a good night

What are these comments about using Mock Locations to stalk people? That could only work if users can't change their location - forcing them to reveal where they are while using the app. Stalkers can just drive around your area to triangulate your location - they don't need Mock Locations - that's the whole concern.
You don't need to know someone's exact location to discuss what you're both into. But a stalker does need your location to know when you're at work, school, home (or away from home).
And if you deny Grindr your location permissions, they'll deny you access to the app. It's that simple. The grid is made up of all the guys right next to you.
Sniffies uses Mock Locations with no problem. There's a little Airplane Icon and everything. Works great.
If they can't find you, they can't stalk you.

Mock locations is dangerous option for people who are stalking other people, therefore should be banned. You can always deny location permissions to Grindr if your biggest concern is privacy.

Mock Locations makes trilateration very easy. In other words people can pin-point your precise location by knowing your distance from 3 or so sets of GPS coordinates. And if your think turning off your distance would prevent this. If someone really wants to find your location, they can just create another profile and spoof that one until you’re “sandwiched in” between two profiles on their grid of known distance that are similar.
Mock locations allow fake profiles to deceive. Find another way to catch your cheating bf that doesn't effect an entire platform of people.
Obvs they disabled mock locations so that users are forced to pay Thier subscription to use the location feature in app
But thanks Grindr for blocking me 3 times and talking like a robot when you reply I want the reason and chance to appeal
Please dont do this!!! It would be a gift to all the fakers out there. If you do decide to introduce this, please make sure that it is clearly marked that the position is fake… preferrably with a big red frame around the profile picture.

In vain we write to add location simulation and they do everything as I want.
They’ve introduced this in the uk now but you have to pay each time you do it 🙄
Roberto Mayen commented
Habiliten ubicaciones simuladas por favor
please allow mock location

Definitely a extremely important feature for everyone using this app. When I first joined Grindr., I has no clue there was at least a way to turn off the miles away from you feature. I have had two different individuals use the miles away feature to stalk and watch me. It was so creepy! One stalker found me and followed me to a forest preserve. I was there with my best friend her 5 years old, my teenage son, and two more family members. Didn't see him until I went into the.one person bathroom by the parking lot and within seconds of locking the door someone tried opening it which I thought really odd. When I walked out, I seen a older guy weirdly peering around the side of the building. Went back by where my family was and opened the app. Sure as shit this guy was like like 500 feet from me. I walked back to the drinking fountain by the bathrooms and it was definitely him. He went back to his car so quick as I turned my back to get a drink. I ran after him....wish I would have caught his ass too!! Dirty creepy ass old man. I'm sure there are far worse stories out there with worse endings. But enabling a ghost location feature would help eliminate some of the stalkers and creeps and even save lives.
