  1. Implement verification feature to stop bots, spam, and harassment/making numerous new accounts

    The amount of guys on Grindr who use this app to harass people for various reasons, only to make dozens upon dozens of new profiles within minutes to continue the harassment. Stop allowing people like this to utilizing Grindr as a tool to harm others or make others scared or uncomfortable. We are supposed to be a community and Grindr is about finding and having fun. I’ve heard and experienced way too many horror stories with self proclaimed “discreet” guys deleting and remaking profiles to avoid the fact that they’ve been blocked by people THEY are harassing or being creepy/predatory…

  2. Pause subscription

    For those of us XTRA/Unlimited subscribers who need to take a break from Grindr due to work-related, health-related, or relationship-related reasons, it would be helpful if we could freeze our subscription so we don’t lose the remaining time we’ve paid for. Since we can’t request refunds, at least don’t penalize us when conflicts arise in our personal life that demand us to step away from the app for a bit. You can still keep our money, just give us the option to freeze. This would be especially helpful for those of us on year-long subscriptions.
    (To prevent users from freezing…

  3. Double standards on profile picture

    Grindr has double standards on profile profile

  5. 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…

  7. Simultaneous photo sending/unlocking

    Trading photos is a pain. There's always a debate about who is going to send theirs first. There should be an option to send another user your photo but that photo only gets shown or unlocked to them if they have sent one of their own to you. Both photos unlock simultaneously.

    I could see the notification saying, "this user has chosen a photo to send to you through the fair photo trade option. If you wish to make a fair trade choose a photo to send them in return and we will unlock both simultaneously"

    This would reduce the…

  8. 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.

  9. Give warnings of any violation

    After being a long-standing user of Grindr, making use of all it has to offer in a respectful and honest way, two days ago my account got randomly banned. No warning. My profile had not changed and in my mind did not overtly break the guidelines. I would like warnings on such drastic action please...as this would help users to rectify any unintentional violation of Grindr‘a rules or guidelines. Removing a users account immediately without warning wipes away the access to a supportive network of people that user has come to know and trust. It also isolates the user at…

  12. Block someone after they block you

    A lot of users play games, then block you. How about an option to block them as well, AFTER they block you? This way they can't unblock you and then start again with a new pic or profile.

  13. ‘Side’ as a position option

    Not all of us enjoy bum fun, and it’s pretty annoying to have to explain this all the time and be made to feel like it’s not legitimate.

    Can you include ‘Side’ as a position option?

  15. Inbox filter: inactive profiles

    This would help us filter out the chats with profiles that have been deleted, deactivated, banned, or gone offline from inactivity.

  16. 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.

  17. 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!

  20. Return of the distance information in grid view

    I really miss the distance measurement that’s been removed from the grid view.

    It was visible when scrolling down the “Nearby”grid. It was where the “Fresh” tab is placed now. Having it back would be helpful.

    Grindr Support said I should post here and see if you agree.

    Let me know. Thanks.
