  1. Photo identification.

    Today I've at to contact the police because someone as said homophobic words and threatened my life, that person had no profile picture and a fake name, everytime I tried to report him he blocked me, he called me faggot, he sent a picture of his hand holding a knife, ect. I seriously think grindr could be a safer app if there was photo identification and proof of ID with address. This is not on and it needs to be delt with.

  2. Ability to report ppl who block me

    Seems like a trend for ppl to say hi with blank profiles and when u ask then for info they block

    This should be automatically reported.
    Even better if u make sure a minimum number of characters are filled, before a profile is created or kept active so we know abt the profile scammers and tpers can be filtered out easily.

  4. ID verification for legal age

    Current/valid drivers or identity card upload for account creation. Grindr employees are required to review the submission of the account creation for duplicate accounts and this implementation into the app will help law enforcement agencies keep track of any sex offenders on file who are not permitted to use electronic devices. This will keep minors off the app and save a few honest men. Also, reduce the presence of other predators such as Creep Catchers and it's affiliates from targeting people whether they intend the defamation or not. A lot of unnecessary harm can be prevented if we hold grindr…

  5. No Face ID to log into Grindr

    Use Face ID, especially for apple/iPhone users.

  8. Stalked by an anonymous guy

    I am being stalked by a local guy constantly.

    I have an open relationship with my guy. We are both allowed to browse the apps.

    This guy favorities my profile and every time he sees me online he texts updates to my other half saying - oh he is back online looking and he can’t be that into you. Blah blah. My other half tells him it’s ok, but he persists in dripping poison.

    It’s easy to say ignore. But it’s affecting my partner now. We are open in using the apps. But the constant jealous pressure is making us…

  9. Threat and asking for money ! FRIGHTENING REAL EXPERIENCE 12/9/21

    I was the recent (almost) victim this past weekend of THREAT and ASKING FOR MONEY. Look, we all know that this is 98% a sex site. After a very "descriptive" conversation with a Grindr member, a dude gave me his telephone number with Area Code 657 and told me to call him. (I did NOT give him mine.) I called it and was told that the "Google Subscriber was not available." I messaged him back on Grindr and was told "I have company right now and cannot talk " THE NEXT DAY, I received a call on my cell phone…

  10. Secure Access

    The pin feature is ok but it would be much better to have Face ID to access the app.

  12. Scam sites in messages

    I was ripped off for $40 and change from a dating site ad in my messages on Grndr.
    These messages are constantly on my message board and I decided to try one of them.
    These scam/ thief messages should never make it on here.

  13. Implement "confirmation" prompt for Send Location

    (February 8th, 2022)

    It is too easy to accidentally tap that little GPS button, mid-convo — thereby unintentionally sending, to your co-chatter, your location when you did not mean to.
    Why is this possible?
    Please allow us the "Are you sure?" confirmation option for this feature, GrindR.

    FOR FREE.

    For your your users' safety.

  14. No age limit on messaging/viewing

    If there were any options to set an age range for people that could interact with you on the app that would be really helpful and a lot safer for ppl on the younger side

  15. Don't be an enabler

    There's an individual harassing people in our area and despite multiple reports to grindr you have still done fuck all about investigating him. Today he even came to my home and has threatened myself and others with physical harm. How the fuck do we get a response from you? We already had a bloody grindr serial killer take the lives of 4 young men. This stuff is serious. Police are not interested unless a crime get committed but you can at least identify these people and possibly kick them off the app

  16. Proof of rule violation

    When you send us a warning for breaking a community guideline, you need to provide us proof of your decision so we can actually see what mistake we made and how to fix it and we should have the opportunity to give our side of the context and defend our innocence if we believe we were not in the wrong.

  17. Text-only app mode for chatting in public

    Sometimes we want to chat with the person while we are heading towards in public. This is currently a dufficult task to not accidentally publicize this fact due to images in chat or lists of profile pictures instead of image placeholders and lists of usernames only.

  19. Grindr creates barriers to safety

    What the F. Why does the “viewed me opt out” feature randomly disappear with no F**** notice?!?!? So, unbeknownst to me my abuser all of a sudden now sees my profile and the approx location. The feature allows me to keep an eye one an unsafe person so 1) i know that person is not near me 2) I could do so without drawing attention to myself.

    But lets guess what will happen…Grindr will continue to pat itself on the back for going above and beyond to promote safety just after my issue is never addressed and deleted…

  20. Please give indication where someone is exploring from

    When someone is messaging you and they’re using the Explore feature, please give an indication of how far away or their general location (not exact) - this should ultimately help weed out spammers and scammers out of the system.
