Could use improvement

Considering that the team of Grindr is likely relatively small in comparison to the number of users/accounts I give them a thumbs up, but It could be better. Here’s why, a few months ago a stalker of 25 years decided to sit online with a profile duplicating mine, putting the real me on blast with false accusations, rife with slander, libel, & defamation of character. While most locals knew exactly who it was and that said person is bat sh— crazy, it still makes attempting to start a conversation with someone when theirs a rhino sitting in the middle of the china shop (pun not intended, as the app is owned by a company in China, btw). It took several friends and a whole weekends time to get the offending profiles removed. Why do they not have resources to ban repeat offenders via MAC address or even DEV-Id is beyond me. It should be something they have the ability to do. I hardly think that the staff is racists (but I’m sure there are some who might be, but company policy prohibits making decisions based off race,gender,sex,disability etc. ) what cause the delay in prompt action? Likely not enough moderators to handle the user volume. Recommendation hire more staff. Add more security features for both user and staff. Would be glad to offer my help as It security is my Skill set and Profession.

Bad Outweighs Good..By Far

Update: it’s still the same, but now it’s kind of funny.

I’ve never taken the time to review an app, but having been using this one since its inception it seems apt to give my 2 cents: the inconsistencies, lax monitoring and outright biased moderation of profile images, profile content and underage members is outrageous. I’ve personally had it at this point, sick of half my messages not getting through and half messages sent to me showing up on notifications but when I open up the app... nada. On this particular day, though, I’m really, really, really incensed by the discriminatory, inconsistent and offensively undeniable practices relating to profile pictures. I’ve always experienced very, very strict vetting to the extent of images not violating any guidelines rejected; furthermore in the past few days it’s come to my attention that there seems to be an abundance of guys out there that get a free pass and are exempt of certain regulations... without going into detail, it’s very frustrating to submit the same image over and over cropping just a bit more even though there’s nothing to crop as per the guidelines... long story short picture rejected 6 times so far, and they do reserve the right to crop at their discretion yet no... This is bullsh*t. Anyway, I’ll be back to continue this tirade.

Developer Response ,

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We totally understand that, being the first impression, a profile picture is very important in any social media app. We also feel proud of the diversity in the many different display pictures in the grid, as we know each one has been specially chosen to represent a personality and a lifestyle. All the content displayed in the profiles goes through moderation for approval, and as we have a human team working on that, it's no surprise that there might be mistakes while approving or rejecting a picture. If you feel there's been a mistake, contact us at, our CS team will review this for you :)

Racist Judgemental liars scam team members at Grindr

I have been using Grindr for more than seven years and paying for Xtra service, they banned me pretending I am bullying and harassing people knowing that I never did that.
They never gave me any explanation I tried to get the information who and what exactly happened and what I did wrong they didn’t want to give me any details, the team member is a scam racist people spying on your messages and if these they don’t like your replies to your Grindr members they ban you, it’s like they are educating people how to talk and how to respond in a private conversation. This app is a scam they took my money for one year and they banned me and never wanted to give me my money back claiming it’s in the rules that if they banned someone he lose his money and they never wanted to give me the reasons and justifications or proofs about what happened and the reason I got banned for. Do not pay for the xtra service it’s not worth it because they can ban you anytime and you lose your money.
The whole 7 years I was using Grindr on and off I was reporting all the scam the prostitution and the bad and fake accounts, I was working for Grindr for free so instead of thanking me for my free contribution to make Grinder a better safer place they banned me for stupid reason they created.
