  1. Stop Spam

    The huge number of spam messages on a daily basis is completely unacceptable.

    Despite numerous reports, Grindr hasn't done anything about this.

    It would be as simple as parsing all messages through a URL filter.

    Why do paying users of Grindr have to endure this?

    Plus, unlike other apps, Grindr doesn't reward users for reporting spam.

  2. Early spam/fraudulent account detection

    The amount of spammers/scammers has EXPLODED and become unbearable.

    It would be great if Grindr engineers used some ML (machine learning) models to preemptively flag potential spammers/scammers and then ban/remove accounts when only 1-2 users report them as spam, instead of the current system of what seems like "manual verification" and probably wait for "enough" users to report a profile.

  3. Know how many active users have you favorited

    We should see how many active users (online within the past week) have us favorited. We should also have the option to display this number on our public profile if we choose. You can call them followers ☺

  5. Spam

    Why you do not block automatically some spam messages there are always the same , containing always same website addresses like fuckguy.net, ....
    I mean what's the point for us to signal spam messages including our conversation if you fo not take any measure to stop it .
    So easy to track profiles that generates messages containing an url or something that looks like

  6. Add 'kink' to tribes!

    There is the leather option but that is just 1 kind of kink so it's a very narrow field. A few people use that tribe for kink but alot of people are intimidated by this because they aren't into leather and see it as "too extreme" for them. I'm surprised it hasn't already been made into a tribe if im honest!

  7. Erase all photos ever sent

    It would be important from a security perspective that any user has the option to have all the content erased from all conversations (especially pictures). That way privacy can be maintained for discreet people and if you decide to log out for a while then no one has access to the photos you sent while you're away from the app.

  8. Do not leave an in-chat notification when an unread message is unsent

    Only messages that were viewed by the recipient deserve an “unsent message” notification if they're retracted by the sender. Messages that were never opened by the recipient, however, should just disappear without a trace. This way, we subscribers can unsend typos and other unseen mistakes without causing any suspicion.

  9. The cost of Grindr

    I think you should do a reduction in your prices as they are absolutely outrageous!! I've always been happy with the basic one as I dont need to know if someones read my message or not, But, if your prices were lower more people would consider it. Why not try and and be the same prices as fellow apps, or just slightly at a higher rate.

  10. cost

    The cost of Xtra and unlimited is too high. I’d like to use the paid service but the idea of paying nearly $50 a month just to find a dude to screw me is too high.

  11. Sexual activity options

    Would be nice to have a section to choose our sexual activities likes, similar to the "Looking for" section.
    Include multiple choice options such as: anal, oral, light fun, rimming, no sex, no anal, bareback, etc.
    I think that would guide guys in finding like minded guys.
    Also it will free up space in typing in the 255 character box.

  13. Add warning and reason for a ban

    I got banned for no reason out of the blue with no warning or explanation. I think sometimes someone just gets their feelings hurt cause I don’t respond or say I’m not interested and they report people for that. I’m not doing anything wrong but got banned. Why? Make this stop! So annoying!

  14. Please add polyamorous

    Please add Polyamorous to the available relationship statuses. It's quite different than "open relationship" and those of us who are in poly relationships really have no suitable option in the drop down list as none of the ones you offer accurately include the polyamorous lifestyle.

  15. Reinstate ethnicity filter

    Removal of ethnicity filter discriminates against my personal sexual preference. If you remove the ethnicity filter based on percrieved discrimination (this is after all Grindr and not the bloody Times Magazine); stop ridiing the political and woke band wagon and brown nosing to said political pressure. If you want to truely take a stand against discrimination then remove ALL the filters as they too are discriminatory. Discrimination doesnt only apply to race. Your removal of the filter has discriminated against my preference and my freedom of choice.  So grow a backbone, drop the political insanity and either reinstate the filter…

  17. Screenshot Notifications/Blocking

  18. Message filter against spam

    Let us set up words and sentences, if these get send to us, we don't receive them.
    Example; the website spammers.

    Words to block; <Boyz.xyz> <FuckAvenue.com> <OnlyGuys.com> <want to earn> <I'm having a party >...

    If someone sends a message with this websites or words in them, we don't get the message.

  19. I’d like the ethnicity filter back - except you have to be smart about it.

    The ethnicity filter can be back with a small change so you can stop people from filtering out people of color.

    It has been impossible for me, as a person of color, to find other people of color. I am an Asian man who are interested in black men and i live in a predominantly white area. It’s been impossible.

    The whole reason why the filter was bad was people filtering out people of color. So small tweaks can restore it and still make it not racist:

    -You can make the ethnicity filter temporary by one search. So you can’t…

  20. The TS/CD community needs a separate section

    I fully support the trans community but I have no sexual interest in them. There really should be a separate area where they and those attracted to them can connect. I joined Grindr because I am a man who is interested in other men and lately it seems all I am doing is blocking members who present as female and those who are searching for them…I love our trans community members, but I don’t want to be intimate with them…
