    They simply don't care. There's no excuse these days to how they don't have it under control. Their ability to provide moderation is an embarrassment, and they don't require a validated email or any kind of validation. I would not be surprised if they're in partnership with whomever is placing the bots, to either get a kickback, or allowing so many bots that more people upgrade to be able to block them all. Typical greedy company that pretends to care about the community.

    Fake profiles (whether spam/bot or someone catfishing) are a huge problem, I see it all the time and reporting them does nothing. You need to implement some kind of verification system, preferably more than just one. Start with needing a verified e-mail, one account per device, and go from there. It is very possible to get it under control, but you have no desire to do anything but collect money.

    I agree. The app is what, 10 years old? How they don't have a system in place to prevent this is completely mind boggling. They simply don't care about users, just money.

    That's because Grindr simply doesn't care. A subpar "captcha" system, and the fact you don't need a valid e-mail speaks quite a bit, don't you think?

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Yeah I've noticed that people you block will sometimes still show up, so either their block system is STILL broken, or people are able to "delete" their account but then reclaim it to circumvent the block, or these people are making new profiles daily because you don't need a verified email address. You have major issues right in front of your face and solutions, why don't you do anything about this, Grindr? Also I've reported them and explained why, not to mention people looking to deal drugs and I still see them around. It's a complete joke.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Exactly. Send out an e-mail upon registration that requires you to verify your e-mail. Also one account per e-mail. When Grindr bans someone, ban not just the e-mail, but the by the device ID otherwise what is the point? You wonder why it's the worst app out there with catfish, spam, and stalkers that can make a new profile in under a minute. Absolutely insane for an app in 2018.

    Good luck with that, Tilghman. Google the name Matthew Herrick and see all the articles of what he went through with someone impersonating and stalking him and Grindr, despite the guy submitting 50 reports on the app and filing police reports, basically twiddled their thumbs. They don't enforce anything and they don't care about anything except making money. That's the kind of company we're supporting by using or paying for the app.

    If it means cutting down on all the fakes and catfish profiles, yes put in this feature. The rest of us shouldn't have to have our time wasted by insecure people with too much time on their hands. The BS is out of control and right now that's a larger issue. If you're in an area that it's not safe to be out in, then the app wouldn't be for you. If you're worried because you're cheating on your spouse, stop being a douche; the app wouldn't be for you.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    I think another problem is Grindr has no interest in policing their own app and want to skirt by doing the bare minimum. Speak their language (money) and it might actually trigger some results with the app. Right now though, us complaining on here isn't going to solve anything. The catfish/fakes are out of control. Require a verified email address, verified picture.

    Anytime I see a picture that has location disabled and it looks grainy, that's a dead giveaway and there are tons of them. Also give us an upvote/downvote so we can warn others of flakes and fakes. Not sure why gay men are so obsessed with playing games online, makes me wonder how many guys actually get any on here.

    This x1000. The number of fake profiles is incredible and they're usually very obvious, but you block them and three more appear. Users should need a verified email, as in they actually have to click a link in the email to confirm, and also one account per IMEI device. The rest of us shouldn't have to do deal with that BS because someone can't remember their password or needs to keep deleting the app because they don't want their wife finding out. It's mind-boggling how it's2018 and Grindr still hasn't figured any of this out.

    I agree with the person below me. This should also apply to anyone that is blocked, it should clear the conversation permanently and should not reappear if one becomes unblocked. This is something that could be coded, but it's a matter if Grindr is willing to. Keep in mind they haven't even figured out how to have a functioning block system in place.

    Clicking on a profile by accident is one thing, but if you see someone that looks at your profile all the time and doesn't say anything, that is creepy. Grow a pair and say hi or stop. I'd say they should be blocked, but after 10 years Grindr still can't code a blocking system that properly functions.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    No thanks. It's creepy to see people who check out my profile all the time on another app. If you're interested then say hi and risk rejection, but saying nothing and looking at my profile everyday is creepy and will probably lead to being blocked. Leave it how it is.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    No thanks, too many creeps around I don't want to have visual proof of how often they're stalking my profile. The "tap" feature was already a horrible idea, please don't add another.

    When I go into my list of blocked people they all show up as being blocked in March or something crazy. It's amazing how this system stumps their developers to this day.

    Block system is still broken. For those that pay for unlimited blocks and having profiles reappear after, you're paying for a service they aren't providing, sounds like a potential legal issue.

    They need to fix the block feature in general. As an Xtra member you get unlimited daily blocks, but if they have some kind of overall cap, they need to remove it, especially for paid members. I block a good dozen idiots a day and there should be no cap to that if they're unwilling to clean up and moderate their own app.

    I've noticed this too. Unfortunately human opinion is subjective and thus enforcement is not consistent. I've also noticed that if you're "hot", man the profile pictures you can get away with! Welcome to the gay community...

    Those kids that are "looking for generous" are annoying, and the reason this is a BAD idea is because Grindr doesn't want to promote prostitution. If you see anyone asking for "generous" or "donations" then report them.
