Grindr - Gay Dating & Chat Comments & Reviews 2023

- Does job but here’s how it can be better

The app gets the job done, although there are some modifications to make it better. Providing users more filter controls to find their person of interest would be more helpful. Giving users the accessibility to find their ideal partner based on position, ethnicity, distance, height and weight helps users devote more time to interacting with their ideal person, as opposed to blocking users for being outside these margins. Also, showing users that are local as opposed to longer distance can draw more users to engage with the app and fulfill the pursuit of finding their person of interest. Alas, the filter setting should converge with other corresponding users. For instance, if a user is looking for someone within a set age range, then anyone outside of that age range should not be able to see that user from their account, unless they are within the age range. If these modifications were made on the non-premium version of Grindr, more users (especially of the younger audience) would be inclined to used Grindr.

- Horrible

I have been using this app for several years for what this app is used for. Then on the day I decide to purchase a one month membership to get the Xtra features I was banned without notice. I thought it to be a technical glitch so I reached out to the support for them and asked for reasons on the ban and they said all I have todo is appeal the ban. I went a week without word back, and reached out again and again. Then I received a email back that only said that I now have a lifetime ban and that I’m screwed because I purchased it, but better cancel my subscription or they will keep billing me. The only thing they said why I was banned was because of community guidelines. I asked for clarification on what I violated because I had no nudity, no foul language, no in appropriate speech, and as a person I don’t talk bad about other people. This is a horrible app, if you are doing what you are supposed to be doing. And they are no help in trying to rectify the situation. The language that they used in there correspondence with me makes me feel like I am a bad person, and being punished for something that never happened. I have been warned about random people getting banned for no reason then get excommunicated for absolutely no reason. Shame on the company Grindr, Inc. same on what you do to loyal customers and I hope this prevents you from marking any money off of your next victim. The essential stole from me and now won’t tell me why. ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE!!!!!!

- Safety is not a commodity

I’ve downloaded and deleted this app several times over the years, my only issue: the safety. Users must PAY for SAFETY FEATURES. I understand the need to monetize, but there are other ways - host member only community events. Prioritize member profiles in the grid. Something, anything, but safety. Why can I not delete an address I accidentally sent? What if that person actually comes to my house or stalks me? It happened. Why do men who have had accounts deleted or removed for harassment have so much access to the app, the ability to create seemingly unlimited accounts? Grindr is transparent about their non liability in safety policies but I expect more for my community. Safety cannot be guaranteed, that is a given in any space online or physical. But why is dangerous behavior permitted? Why must I, a struggling college student, pay $20/month for access to basic safety features I can find in any other social media platform? Especially in the current climate of violence towards LGBTQ people, to trans people facing disproportionate amounts of violence. I come back to the app occasionally because I like to emphasize my effort to be a part of the community, connect with people I feel seen by and safe with in a world I already see as so dangerous to people like me. I want the community. But I’m disappointed time and time again to see Grindr devalue their users, violate and capitalize our right to safety.

- Will ban your account and ability to create any other accounts

I’ve given this my utmost effort, and really did not want to give a bad review. The Grindr support team is not very helpful, and has not responded to me in almost a month after a 4-month battle to try and get my accounts back or restore my ability to create a new account and use the app. I was banned in March of 2022 and instantly reached out to support with an appeal, with my main profile being unbanned. However, was told that I needed to submit an appeal to all of the accounts I had, which was one other account through my Apple ID. After submitting a second appeal for my Apple ID account I was required to know the date of creating my account, which was unknown to me since I had not used it in a long time. I was told that there was nothing they could do since I did not know when I made the account and have since not received an email back from my email sent on June 10th, 2022. It is July 4th. This all sprung from a claim that I was underage even though I had sent pictures of my drivers license to prove it, which apparently isn’t enough. I’m still unable to use the app whatsoever or create a new account without an instant ban. I’m not the only person with this issue, and others have had this issue even after purchasing a subscription and completely losing the money. Beware.

- My account got banned for no reason and Grindr support is nonexistent

I went to a guys place 15 miles away and when I got there he had told me to “kms”, then proceeded to block me. I was obviously shocked so I decided to warn other by putting his user in my about me and warning others about him. The next day I had found out I had been blocked, I was confused and looked it up. There’s apparently no other way to get your account back unless you file an appeal, so I did. The Grindr support that reviewed my case didn’t care and told me the decision was final. So I just gave up on that account and tried to create a new account but as soon as I was down creating the account, it would say the account was banned. I’ve tried deleting the app, restarting my phone, trying different ways to create a new account, you name it I’ve tried it. All to no avail. I proceeded to reach out to Grindr support team once again but they again told me they couldn’t do anything and pretty much dismissed my problem. I had been getting tired of the app for a while but that just did it for me. What got me was how unhelpful the “support” team was, and how they literally didn’t care about what I had to say or anything. This was two weeks ago and I have not found a solution to my problem and a member of the support team even told me they will not respond to any of my further emails.

- Please fix your quality control, Grindr devs

The following is not a helpdesk/end-user problem; it is a long-running QC issue that should not have the buck passed on to us consumers to solve. Pros: The only thing this app has going for it in terms of positive user experience is that there are so many people using it. 1 star for the ubiquity. Cons: Unfortunately, for me, with my iPhone 12, my phone constantly freezes any time I download and use this app. Further, my phone gets extremely hot to the touch, and my battery drains so drastically that I have to charge it any time I’m using this app. These behaviors occur only when I have Grindr running. If I kill the app, my phone is fine. When I delete the app, my phone is fine. I’ve yet to do an iOS restore as a last-stitch effort, but in this nearly Web 3 era and decades of smart phones, how can this one app crash my phone so badly? I’ll tell you: sometimes I can’t even kill the app for minutes; the entire phone becomes unresponsive. Have you read their version update logs? It’s a generic description each time. What are the developers actually fixing with the plethora of versions being released? How about focusing on RAM and CPU usage? Very limited recommendation and I would never pay for it at this point. Minus 4 stars for nearly melting my phone’s internals—I’m guessing it’s the CPU overheating.

- All the reviews are fake!

Edit!!!!! I have been reporting fake accounts, I talked to one account and they seemed fake but sent a video showing they was “real”. They send their location and their address. and right when I show up I knock and it was an old couple who said no one young lived there and when I got back on the app it was a fake account asking for a steam pay account. This account stayed up for 6 days before being taken down!!! Someone needs to be taking the owners of grindr to court for this stuff!! This app is FULL of fake accounts, when they are reported NOTHING happens to them! At all. They upload blurry photos they got off google and then they will tag a location asking for gift cards or credit card info, others will say “tired of this app go here and enjoy” and there’s about 2 of those messages a day. So aside from the HORRIBLE amount of spam and scammers they OVERRRRR charge for a monthly membership..I’m sorry...$20 a month to see who’s 10+ miles away...? Or $20 a month to see who is a top or really...? You can buy a Netflix membership for cheaper then they charge just for a few things. (100% not worth that price.) This app is by far one of the worst “dating” or “hookups” app I’ve ever seen. They’re nothing but money hungry and they do not care that their users are being scammed and used.

- They finally have fixed the problems

This app keeps getting more and more and more and more expensive. They change the price every six months it seems. I had been an off and o. Paid subscriber for years. They just have gotten too expensive. Their pic moderation seems extremely biased and is not consistent. If you aren’t a twink or muscle guy any pic seems to get moderated. I have screen shot over 280 pics where the pic wasn’t moderated and mine was. Either it’s racial or body specific. I talking to an attorney to see what type of class action lawsuit can be filed for it to either have them consistently moderate or shut the site down. Also seems like an abnormal amount of bots are allowed now and an overwhelming amount of underage guys are on the site another filing I’m working on with an attorney. Chances are that Grindr won’t even respond to this review, but I’d steer away from this site.

- It’s really not too bad

I don’t think Grindr deserves ALL the hate it gets. Sure, there are a ton of bots and scams, but if your IQ is higher than room temperature, they’re so easy to spot. The ads definitely get annoying so I wish they had a bottom (lol) tier price to strictly remove ads for us poverty gays. I’d pay $5 a month for that alone. Really for an app like this, you get what you put into it. If your profile is trashy, don’t complain if your DMs are full of trash. I’ve had a lot of success using the app and made some genuine connections with some awesome guys! All that being said, guys claiming to be 18, 19, 20 scare me sometimes since there is NO age verification on the app. I have started to avoid this age group. This is dangerous for both underage young men who are no doubt using the app and for everyone else using the app. All it takes is proof of picture ID to end this phenomenon which countless other apps already implement. I’m certain that if Grindr’s parent company doesn’t implement some sort of age verification, we will be seeing a huge lawsuit come from either a government or as a class action.

- Meh

This app used to be decent. Now it’s all fake, flakes, bots, and add. I used to pay the full cost just so people couldn’t steel my photos. I gave up on that. Every time I message anyone I get minimum one add, plus the add at the bottom on top of the constant request to “boost my profile” how much money can grindr squeeze from people? I agree it’s not a necessity but let’s be real here, there are plenty of other options that don’t cram adds down your throat. (That’s the only thing you’ll get) the people on this app are mostly there to see/collect your photo so they can J/o later to it. Or you’ll be blocked after you show up to meet. The guys looks for trans only is getting out of hand. Every other profile is a “straight” dude that’s ready to berate you for them being on a gay hookup app. The blank profiles are rude and last but not least are the profiles that have so many stipulations. This app is a huge ego shot to most and there is a lot of hate and mean things said on here. I don’t suggest it If you’re looking for something casual and forget having any good conversations. Good luck all hope this helps someone else. I went to sniffies and paid the extra for that app. Cheaper and better.

- Scary ToS and PP

Sure they’re transparent but if any of the users actually read their privacy policy it might make even the most purest of users cringe. They are transparent with their legal jargon though. Update: I appreciate the swift response and the clarification of the intended means of data collection. As well as Grindr LLC’s commitment to privacy and security of personal information collected. It’s nice to see a responsible developer just trying to provide people with a service they love. However the generic auto-repost served in rebuttal to my review left me feeling less than of an importance. I furthermore appreciate the effort to direct me to the Privacy Policy. Again, however it was made in vain since the review was authored in response to my reading of the privacy policy and also with SDK tracking vendors such as Vangle if I’m not mistaken. So I am fully read up on the data collection process and selling of. I’m also a college graduate. Thank you again for expressing Grindr LLC’s devotion to security of the personal information which is collected passively and safety. Looking forward to seeing what’s next with the pioneer in digital dating . 👍

- Warning about Grindr

What I want to say about this app that I really love Al lathe great people love have met and spoken to in it, the problem is that way too many people flake on the app or do not respond to you quickly so there’s a tendency to be somewhat upset and stressed out when you are on the app due to people playing games and making what you want to happen whether it’s a date, an interesting chat talk, hookup, and so on not happen and it leads to unhappiness and just stress. So if you download Grindr, know that you will have to have tough skin dealing with people like that cause it will have an effect on you 9 times out of 10. The stress and anxiety might come indirectly, but somehow, flakers have a way of affecting people by not meeting the need you are looking for on the app. Some people want to be in a relationship, want to hookup, go on a date. It’s hard to do all those things if I people are flaking and are leaving you with no response to the chat that is started. It’s so upsetting and stressful man!!!!

- May as well rebrand your name to “Greedy”

With each update, you get less and less options for free users, and soon it will be unusable, unless you pay. While I don’t mind paying, these prices are far too steep for what you get. Not to mention you might drop $80-$100 only to find you’ve been banned shortly after with no explanation as to why. (Yes developers, I’ve seen your responses to other reviews on this matter, but I know too many men in my own circles that are evidence to the contrary. Bottom line is your moderation system is terrible.) Speaking of my own circles, no one ever has anything good to say about this app. They just treat it like a necessary evil they have to put up with. I’m beginning to seek alternatives, and encourage others to do so as well. I would rather pay for a platform that provides me with some kind of benefit to do so, not because I feel like I’m being squeezed in a vice and have no other choice. Just keep in mind, it’s a slippery slope. The more unusable you make it, the less users you’ll have in your base, the less likely users will see value in paying for anything no matter what the price is at that point.

- To be honest

App works well to network. Except glitches can really kill an opportunity. Lost messages sometimes make the other person believe you are not interested- and vice versa. When a regular text comes in on iPhone- the app gets weird. I decline the text- but the app goes offline- and photos and msgs I have sent prior to message notification are lost. Sometimes when I block soneone/ the app gets frozen- I have to turn iPhone off to restart after a long wait- usually 5 minutes. If guys are going to rely on this app- it needs to work correctly. Pics and messages need to be sent and received. Otherwise- someone may become offended that you have not responded to their message- and block you. When I send error reports- when I get a notification- what happens? Do you use this ? Or is it a waste of my time.? Until grinder gets kinks worked out- guys will use several apps at once- and not trust this app. Also- location goes haywire on occasion. Someone who it says is close by- can be in reality be a thousand miles away. I use the app a lot. And wish you had customer service reps available when problems arise. Jg Un

- Catering to the hot ones

I can’t blame the app for this but I can blame the developers for allowing every white male to break the conditions and rules of Grindr. How many times do you see a white male in his underwear with the lining of his penis? (All the time) or any other “attractive” male. If any other race or person does that their picture is immediately removed. The culture that Grindr calls “inclusive” is the exact opposite. Grindr has been the worst experience when it comes to advertising of sexiness in races and culture. The LGBT community and the rest of the world as a whole is also to blame for this lack of consideration. Downloading this app was one of the worst decisions I have ever made in my life. Grindr and its developers are out to take our money and that’s it. The subscription prices are out of hand, and the amount of ads you see are insane. Scruff doesn’t force you to watch an ad to satisfy their ad experience. There are also more features and more people to see on Scruff. Grindr has been around longer yet fails to evolve into a more developed platform. The amount of times the app crashes or slows a device down is immeasurable. Fix it!


Grindr and Jack’d are ANALOGOUS for what?Might as well be one app. Only thing different is the target audience (Grindr: privilege/ Jack’d: Minority), allowing screenshots within chat (Grindr: Yes/ Jack’d: No) though in my opinion i think screenshots should be disabled within the whole app itself, but if not at least the profile search page to see who’s nearby out of respect of others’ privacy that they claim they want, sending pics and videos (Jack’d: yes/ Grindr: only pics but videos gotta be sent live) and i get the live video from Grindr but wen i wanna feel lazy i just wanna send the video i already got that’s been working just fine to confirm that I’m legit because this black don’t crack, navigational location dropping (Jack’d: yes/ Grindr: No) and Grindr drops the location but you would have to type it out unless you have the world map memorized, and maybe the subscription but that’s sad in itself should jus be one price in my opinion, but we got profit feens. Other than that everything is cool i mean there’s probably other things i haven’t covered but there are other issues not pertaining to the apps but individuals themselves that may need time to look at a reflection of themselves to reevaluate and I'm still learning this myself. Just gotta take it a day at a time and use your time wisely.

- I don’t have the patience for this anymore

Update: There’s a bug that deletes all photos that are more than a couple months old… It just shows a paper icon with a slash going through it. I really cannot wait for my subscription to expire. Every time a Grindr server goes down, my app shows a “Cannot Refresh Page” error. Then, when the server is finally back up, my app becomes broken and crashes each time I attempt to open it. The only solution is to delete & redownload the app, which deletes all of my settings, blocked accounts, messages, and photos. This is an app I pay for — a pretty large sum of money too. Yet, I have had to delete all of my data three times these past several weeks. Backing up chats is cumbersome, as you’re rarely asked to back them up and it’s just weird to make users manually do it when it’s a task that should’ve been automated. I’ve already decided I’m not renewing my $100+/year subscription. If the app refuses to load again, I’ll just delete it permanently. I can’t think of another social media account that deletes ALL of your data after removing the app. Ridiculous.

- Dangerous

I’ve had someone use my photos for about a year and each time I reported them and reached out to support the profile would take days to be taken down. That profile also unknowingly harassed some of my direct reports from work which made for a very awkward conversation - something I never thought I’d have to deal with as a manager. Additionally, they actually offer zero support in terms of preventing this type of behavior. I ended up hopping off the app hoping they’d get bored but they persisted. There is no verified status (tinder has), and no internal system that tracks similar photos being uploaded by other users. It’s actually quite funny that when you post a photo you have a period of waiting where it needs to be approved. Why aren’t people caught at this stage for using someone else’s photos? At a bare minimum if you’re charging that much for ultimate - you need to include some safety features. Ideally, incorporate safety for all users. App works as intended, but is extremely unsafe to use. There is nothing stopping someone from creating a fake profile using your photos and ruining your reputation.

- App is garbage, iCloud backup not working

Beyond all the issues with bots, trolls and data theft by the company. I am unable to restore my iCloud chat backup. For the longest time I was actually unable to even load the app it just kept crashing. So I got an idea that eh what would I lose if I uninstall it? I got my iCloud backup. Well apparently something changed with the app that my iCloud doesn’t recognize it as the same app I made a backup from. It instead thinks its a different app entirely. When I check my app history it does indeed show I have downloaded 2 different apps from the app store. My guess is the people at Grindr were tired of trying to fix the bugs that prevented it from working with iOS 14.x and just rebuilt the app in iOS 14.x. But then Apple issued it a different ID that doesn’t match the previous one. Fix it!! I got hundreds of chats and photos in that backup that I want back! Update: App ever since iOS 16.1 has been worse. Now it just constantly says “Unable to refresh” and my friends tiles show them as offline thousands of miles away when I know they aren’t. I hope this gets fixed!

- Trash app

Got suspended for no reason, no email and no text to my phone number telling me what I was in violation of. It appears that if a certain number of profiles who don’t like you or are jealous of your profile, the ones you want nothing to with because your 18 and there in their 40s they can report it for no reason and Grindr blocks that account including your cellular number. It makes it so you can’t make a new account which is odd on why they need our number it’s not like it’s uses it for two step verification I think it’s a violation of privacy. I wanted to continue to talk to decent people that aren’t Grindr Karen’s or lurking pedophiles, which seems to be an important issue on this platform that Grindr fails to fix. This will be my last time using Grindr and if this review doesn’t get through to you all you have to ask yourself what is Grindr hiding that they don’t want others to see or know. I was bullied to the point others reported my profile for no reason because I wasn’t interested in them. An got victimized by them and Grindr. I’m waiting for a generic developers response!

- Don't Pay for a buggy app

I've never paid for a dating app before. A couple months ago, I decided to give a few a try. While most of them have been great, paid grindr is actually worse than the free version. You consistently have to force close the app for some of the extra features to work (the recently viewed tab for instance). The paid version has a message search feature. This has never, ever worked. In fact, it's crashed the app every time I've ever tried to use it. I don't bother anymore. I recently opened the app and found that the interface had reverted to the free version, as if I had cancelled my subscription (I hadn't). This is the second time this has happened. The worst part? I've opened tickets about most of these issues. They've never fixed any of them after multiple app updates. They just tell you to force close the app, or delete and re-download it. Anyway, I'll be cancelling my subscription soon, and I wouldn't recommend the paid version to others. You're just paying for a buggy app where the free version is much more stable.

- Can’t get into account

3 days now I have restarted my phone and iPad I have downloaded again same window enter number then I get to many attempts. Customer service reported and they are now not even responding. I cannot enter email address for account it’s the same window when reinstall it every time. I don’t have another number to enter. I can’t get the app to do anything other than enter your number. I have done everything that’s on the web to fix this I have reported is over and over. Customer service doesn’t read the issues I’m having they want me to do things that I can’t do because it’s the Sam screen over and over. What is the fix what do we do about this. I have requested a phone number to talk to a live person and can not get one. I have done everything again now 3 days


They are FORCING you to update. With every update there are less and less guys on your feed and access to les and less features. They constantly limit your feed and create blocks with the explore feature. Its bad enough you have to watch the ADS after every message, they do everything to inconvenience you, waste your TIME, just to corral you into buying premium when you are simply trying to connect with a few people on the grid. If I cant see all the guys in my small town within a 5 mile radius, theres something WRONG with that! Its ALSO discrimination against low income individuals, people of color, and minority communities. especially when they REMOVED the feature that let me find my own people, you cant search by “race” anymore, so if you want to connect with your own people, GOOD LUCK! I shouldn't have to use the EXPLORE feature just to find my own people, and even with that they limit you to 3 “free” searches per day. They basically gentrifying the digital space, so if you poor and cant afford premium, guess what, you miss out!!!!! 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽


Grindr does not protect its community. They DO NOT uphold their own community guidelines and the photo moderators are a joke. A profile has been reported over ten times for a prominently displayed unobstructed view of an erect penis as its public profile photo. It is clearly pornographic in nature and explicitly banned in the community guidelines. And yet the photo moderators keep letting the user post it. In app reports result in zero action. Emails to the grindr help desk get stock responses claiming the issue has been rectified without addressing the fact they keep letting this happen. They take the photo down then let the user post it up right away. Complaints to grindr go unanswered. What is the point in allowing users to indicate they do not want to receive unsolicited nude photos while simultaneously subjecting them to the same images?!? DO YOUR JOB AND PROTECT THE COMMUNITY. Now cue a stock response from the app developers not actually addressing the complaint…. UPDATE: Developer Response…. Did you even read the complaint? If you will not address the actual complaint why even pretend to respond?

- One of the Most Fun and Safe apps to meet Guys!

Yes my partner and I been using this dating/friend making app for years now and I can only say is that if your responsible smart and very clear with your intentions you no doubt have a great time or simply end the conversation way before meeting that other guy. I’ve also noticed many guys complain about getting thrown off the app site or simply black listed. And then they ask WHY? 🤷‍♂️😵😭 if your being a bully, or a straight up stocker then people will complain about you and Make sure they show them the conversation record word by word etc. so be nice present and after getting to know one another well exchange numbers meet up in a public location etc. we’re all adults here at the end of the Day so let’s act like it and have fun with that new friend. 😉

- People using my photos AGAIN

It’s happened a few time on this site to where it was brought to my attention that a user was using my photos. Im not even on this site and I haven’t been for years. They do nothing for verification and those using my photos were harassing other users. This is troubling especially in contrast to the work that I do. In the past I have come to realize that, If you use this app, expect to meet those with fake profiles and those that solicit money for sex. Next time I will have to take legal action against the app for defamation if they continue to allow the use of my copyrighted photos. Such apps should not be allowed on the App Store. On all personal sites, no one should be allowed to troll with no photo, no info, or at least with out verification. If these sites used verification, it will end fake users and identity theft. Discretion defeats the purpose on this site and catering to those of discretion causes way more problems then the disallowing of it. It’s a personals site, stop allowing those that hide and watch the app soar.

- Wasted potential

I’ve been using this app for a year and it has worked in getting dates its just very hard like because i have to sift through all the people who are hundreds of miles away just to find one thats close to me like the ratio of not far to way too far has to be like 1:15 that’s terrible and there’s no way to stop it because unlike every other dating app grindr doesn’t have a distance limit you can set, and the dumbest thing that always experience when using this app is when I use explore and use my location or a place 20 minutes away profiles show up but most if not all end up being hundreds of miles away, this is so frustrating and really infuriating because such a big problem can be fixed with such a simple solution just add a distance filter to the plethora of other ones that are there and this app would probably be better than every other dating app, but I know that grindr is never gonna fix this issue so honestly it’s just a waste of time ninety percent of the time.

- worst customer service

so far two weeks to fix simple problem of sent pics not highlighting after sending/ making sending doubles a embarrassing problem have to beg for a robot response if you lucky so i'm still waiting oh last one said staff with families for the holidays/ ha ha this started in the 17t UPDATE: now because grinder tec failed to fix problem they sent it to the developers/ ha ha got a robot response/ apparently us little people don't matter/ oh it's three weeks and counting/ i'm sure outcome will be me loosing everything and starting over ha ha amazing can send us little people into space now but can't even get a simple update signed a disgusted paying customer ps update now the 14th of january about a month still nothing but to rub salt in the wound no communication at all from grinder they ignore my emails there is no other avenue ti go for help on the suggestion page there r no suggestions just complaints about all kinds of app problems but the hiding i'm assuming cuz of failure by the support crew is just childish grinder needs to hire some pros ir just shut the whole thing down and fix it what a mickey mouse operation

- Bad verification cannot get account back

I signed up for Grindr under the unlimited membership and mistyped my email address. Since Grindr does phone verification and also does not send a welcome email, instead of verifying email address and then phone, I was never aware of my mistake. Now I am locked out of my account and I have sent them my photo I’d and my profile pictures and they are not able to restore my account to me after 3 support tickets. I will be talking to the attorney general. I sent in my pictures and my drivers license and they say I can’t have my account unless I know the email address. Why can’t you use the phone that I verified it with. If you can’t give me my account with my own pictures then what hope is there. I called the company and left a detailed message. The system is flawed for sure. It needs to verify your email and your phone instead of just phone. If you sign up make sure you type in and screenshot it what email address you used otherwise if you lose it you are likely screwed.

- Really going downhill since I was last using it.

Honestly this app used to be really good at one time. But honestly it’s on a decline for me. Between the spam accounts, nothing being done about reporting abusive accounts, and the biggest is everything is becoming xtra on the app. I can understand needing to make money from an app and rightfully so but honestly with the newest update and now the fresh section only lets you view 6 people and anymore is now xtra when before you could view 20 people. And before that it was 5$ to use xtra for 24 hrs now it’s 10$. Everything in the app is pretty much going xtra now. I laugh thinking one day I’m going to open the app and it’s gonna say “xtra to open the app”. Like I said I can understand making money off the app but there’s a limit between making money and annoying consumers who use it by starting to limit it especially when there’s ads running almost every time you click on something in the app.

- Crashing issues

In the last week, my Grindr app has started crashing every time I’ve tried opening it, sending me right back to my home screen. I was a couple versions behind, so I thought upgrading it to the most recent version would fix it. It didn’t. I used a third party program to downgrade my app version even lower to see if maybe it was just a recent bug. Nope! Still crashing as low as 7.17.0. I believe this issue is server sided and nothing to do with the app version. And despite having chats backed up, attempting to reinstall the app wiped my chat history AND my chat backup. I don’t really understand what the purpose is for cloud backups if reinstalling the app deletes them. Under what other circumstances would someone need chat backups other than having to reinstall the app? I was in contact with the Grindr help email and they told me this was a bug they were aware was affecting multiple people. I hope they fix it soon, because these reviews are filled with people experiencing the same problem as I am.

- Grindr is grinding itself away

Grindr go ahead and chew your own leg off. You are eating away at your product and customer base and goodwill. You should never have sold out, that’s when you went downhill. Foremost the price. Y’all lost your minds when you thought people would pay your original price for “unlimited”. You squandered those of us who had been paying for “Xtra” on that. I’d go with $99/year but even that is grossly pushing it and forget that $150+ mess you keep angling for. Connection has been better lately but messages are still hit & miss coming through at times. Like how long now have we had instant messaging? Other apps seem to have conquered it a decade ago but you’re still working on it. Also the catfish and the bots on there are out of control but you won’t let people verify themselves and reflect that confirmation in their profiles. Identity and data theft is rampant. The negatives are outweighing the positives lately and you seem perfectly fine with that. Just keep grinding away at yourself.

- I’ll never be back

Not entirely by choice I’ll admit. But it’s time. I’ve hated Grindr and it’s toxic environment for long enough. After having my account banned countless times for no reason, no communication for explanation etc. I know there are others who have experience this. After just subscribing to extra 3 or 4 days ago then getting my account banned, because someone was rude to me, called me stupid in the app, and was upset when I then politely declined them. This sort of thing is all too common with this app. There is no other behavior or engagements I have prior to being banned each and every time this has happened. After paying money this time though for a more optimal experience, I am officially cutting my losses as I don’t expect trying for a refund is worth my time, imagining the lack of customer support. This app has always felt monitored by bots, from profile picture approval, to actual bots being in chat, and then the banning of accounts for … maybe I’m crazy… something I shouldn’t have been banned for.

- Horrible app that does not listen to its users

I got banned a while back for no reason, I just woke up one morning and it had the “you are banned from Grindr” screen. I know the rules and I haven’t broken a single one, so I have no clue what this could possibly be about. The only thing I can think of for this random ban is that maybe a lot of people reported me because they are upset that I did not text back??? I have no clue, I did get quite a bit of messages and maybe people got mad that I wasn’t responding to most of their unsolicited d pics and “hey” messages. But, even if I did do something wrong, why would grindr not tell you? Or give you a warning? You are only left with the knowledge that you broke their rules but they do not specify which ones. I tried to appeal but they purposefully made that process complicated and they have not yet got back to me after making that appeal. They will ban you out of nowhere and never tell you what you did wrong, it’s just a matter of when tbh.

- A basic review.

As an 18 year old, this app can be filtered by age, body type, and much more. Throughout my experience, this is not a dating app. I’ve had numerous accounts say they’d love to 🔩 me in my house, car, etc. I’ve had to delete my profile lots of times because of these issues. I’ve also had to move to Tinder because other guys are horny for younger guys. In extreme measures, I have had to involve the police due to a person that stalked me, threatened me and would do bodily harm towards me. I always feel like an object when I use the app. Just because of my body, face, and the clothing I wear. If the app had a verified badge by the name (like Tinder does), the app would be safer to know who you are meeting with. I also fear for my safety as the men on this app are really disgusting. As a person still trying to find my sexuality, this is not an app to download if you want to date. I’d highly recommend Tinder. Overall, not a dating app. It is unsafe. At least for me.

- Intrusive Advertising

Advertising to keep an app subscription free is understandable, however Grindr takes advertising to the next level. Grindr harasses its free members to get a paid subscription by bombarding them with ads in the midst of replying or viewing a message. I’m convinced that the ads are not meant to be relevant to most end users, but rather to annoy them into a paid subscription. The other thing that Grindr does to its unpaid members that it does not do to its paid members, is that it purposely limits the amount of people you can view who are online and in your proximity and rather shows you people who are offline and further away. The latest app update also brought with it a glitch that shows users to be within a few thousand feet from you when in reality they are a few miles away. I’m not an IT person, however I wonder if those issues are related.

- Security risk caused ban

This apps support and security are abysmal. My profile was hacked by their lack of security allowing someone to reset my password. Support simply banned me after I was hacked and was no help in me recovering profile and they didn’t even believe that I was hacked until weeks of emails. They just said I know it was you. I lost that account snd had to make a new one but they did not delete the hacked profile. This app is full of scam artists snd drug dealers they do nothing about. The scams are run by the support staff themselves. That’s how they never get banned. My new account was banned for absolutely nothing. I’ve sent three emails which they’ve ignored and filled out the form in support to have ban lifted but all they did was resend a link for me to fill out the same form. So obviously support is just AI software and not a real human. I read online that Grindr net profit from New York City alone is enough to keep the company afloat so obviously why should they care about quality control and keeping customers happy.

- It’s Okay

It’s an okay app, the safety on it is a bit iffy and although the app IS inclusive of all LGBTQ+ members, my partner (transman) and I (non-binary) face quite a bit of rude and overall transphobic messages. They block us before we can fully report and I’ve only been able to successfully report one person who was EXTREMELY transphobic towards my partner and I. I’m 100% positive he has done it to MANY other trans/non-binary people on here as well. We never knew if the account got banned or terminated and I would love if they add a feature to where they update you about the situation. It would be super helpful. I overall do enjoy the app but I definitely think it needs some fixes such as I said above. I’ve gotten a few occasional creeps and had some scares where someone has said he’d come find me. But I don’t really think that’s the app/creators faults. Otherwise, it’s an okay app! Just needs some fixes! :)

- Glitchy, Buggy Trash

So, like, nevermind that the app can barely function BEFORE an ad pops up and crashes the whole thing, because that’s just the piss-poor coding Grindr’s always been known for. They’ve never gotten better about that, and I don’t imagine they will. Can live and let live there. But can we talk about the filters, please? The useful ones being hidden behind paywalls isn’t exactly new for these types of apps, but here’s the things that make it so much worse with Grindr: 1) All those blank, faceless profiles from creepers and cheating husbands and such and thus? Gotta pay to filter those out. And 2) there’s only so many profiles it’ll let you scroll through before, you guessed it, another paywall blocks you from viewing or hitting up more people. And if you live in the middle of nowhere, odds say most of the free profiles you’re allowed to view are the faceless ones. “aDs KeEp GrInDr FrEe” Cool, but where’s that money going? Could you put some into making this app decent, please?

- If you’re college-age, prepare to get banned!!

If you’re college-age and/or young-looking, do not get this app!!! I had this app for two weeks, more or less. Everything was going great. Then suddenly, 3 days ago, my account was banned. No warning. No given reason either. Although my theory is some jerk thought I was under 18 (I’m 19, mind you!) and reported me, and the moderator who reviewed my account also just assumed I was a minor too without asking for any kind of verification. I’ve filled out 3 ban appeal requests; the ONLY way I can reach out to them about this, by the way. No response to any of them. Not even a “sorry for the delay, we’re busy right now.” I know they‘ve had a glaring underage-user problem for a while now, but if this is how they go about it – banning people they ASSUME are under 18 – they’re doomed. I don’t even know if that’s why they banned me, but I assure you I was literally doing NOTHING against their terms of service, so this is all I can think of. If you’re young or young-looking, STAY AWAY!

- Suggested app improvements

Some feedback for the design and product teams: There are some back to basics improvements to the app UX which would make a big difference to how easy it is to use Grindr. Especially around navigation actions that people do constantly. Can you please (re) introduce edge swipe to exit-back-to-grid from the profile page? It’s such an important navigation gesture, and having to always tap the “<“ icon in the top left is super cumbersome. Also… it would be great if you could have swipe left and right to navigate through photos in an album. Trying to force the Instagram stories tap-to-next image affordance just doesn’t really work in this context. Even better would be to allow zooming in and out of photos without having to tap and wait (that’s something you can do from anywhere in IG which is an excellent capability). Lastly, performance: the whole app is going slowly, but there are 2 key areas that drive me crazy: tapping into a profile, tapping to exit a profile, and tapping the little flame “tap” feature. Everything has slowed to a crawl. Pause work on new features, and devote a sprint or two to improving app performance. As the saying goes: performance is a feature. Thanks so much!

- Bad app, even worse customer service.

I was recently banned without being given a reason when I contacted customer support. Not only was my profile banned but both devices I used to login were both banned in their system as well, so I can’t create a new profile even if I wanted to. I know for a fact I didn’t do anything that warranted a device ban. I’ve seen a lot of other trans people mention being banned for no reason other than for being trans and it really sickens me to think that a business like grindr, which is supposed to be inclusive to the LGBTQ community is being prejudiced against some of their customers. Who are these employees that are banning these profiles? Also, I contacted customer support multiple times and didn’t even get a response until a month and a half later. At least they apologized for that part. There seems to be no accountability or answers for unwarranted bans from their employees. I will be contacting the Better Business bureau.

- Intrusive ads

I am fully aware of Grindr needing ads to remain free unfortunately these ads are very intrusive and glitch constantly. It’s almost like the “X” at the top right corner or the close ad buttons are just there for show. You can’t close the ad at all most of the time. I usually have to force close the app to get the ad to go away. Just opening a message or checking who viewed me initiates this ad that literally will not go away unless I close the app! Is that good for you guys? Ads that literally force the consumer to close the app? It can’t be! A lot of times I’m so discouraged by all the ads I don’t even come back after force closing. Again I am fully aware grindr needs ads to remain free but please do better Grindr. I’ve had this app for more than 10+ years and I have never been so tempted to uninstall and try other apps than I am now.

- False ads

Grindr uses ads to keep the app free. But what nobody has brought up is that these ads make you click them and interact. With you clicking on that screen on those ads you are pressing a yes button to all sorts of other things behind the scenes. After doing so you’ll start to get texts from random numbers that are down right disgusting with links to pages that are just as bad. These ads need to be checked by Apple and I think with a full investigation. These links are to steal even more information and I know for a fact that Grindr is the ONLY way I’d be getting text and calls like these. Awful. Btw they don’t stop even if you block the numbers. Grindr is terrible at keeping up with bans and will also ban you permanently without any warnings or really looking into the problem with the users. Over all terrible app. I wish a company would buy it and take it over. Also this is all coming from a daily user so please take it as you will.

- Poor App Function

The one thing grindr has going for it is it’s ubiquity, it is the app with the largest user base and they know it. I can ignore the ads, overpriced subscription, and poor app management but the app has become largely unusable in the last few months. I have encountered a bug that crashes my phone and prevents the app from rebooting unless it is reinstalled from the App Store. This wouldn’t be a anything more than a hassle but every time it happens, I lose any chats I haven’t backed up to the iCloud. Entire conversations gone, embarrassing questions about who I’ve been chatting with, general frustration every time it happens. When I reached out to support they just said they are aware of the issue. This has been happening for several months now (at least since April for me) and there has been no attempts to remedy this bug. Any newcomers be sure to obsessively back up your chats and be aware that this could happen and they don’t seem to care.

- Grindr is… well. Grindr.

Grindr is a mess. Sure, it may make meeting other guys easily accessible. Although the pure fact that Grindr subliminally markets itself as way to get intimate with strangers while still claiming it’s for ‘gay dating’ is disappointing. What’s more sad is, most men let how they meet someone, and the platform they connected on, dictate that entire friendship/relationship moving forward. There’s so many double standards on the platform, which makes it harder to connect and create meaningful connections with people. Also, it makes my iPhone 13 Pro Max feel like the surface of the sun, only with a few minutes of usage. Causes the display to Dim to a brightness I can barely even read. When you force reset your device as well, it causes the application to crash upon each attempt to launch the app. There’s still no fix for this.

- Grindr Gods continue to ruin app

Instead of focusing on real improvements to the app like ridding spam bots once and for all, the Grindr gods continue to screw around with features like tags and age search functions. Instead of allowing their users choice in how they search for compatible matches the Grindr Gods continue to make things harder on their customers. Focusing solely on the issue of age searches, Grindr Gods have decided that no one will be permitted to search narrowly for users by age ranges any less than four years. The claim according to their customer service agents is that by setting it up that way it allows users to search more broadly for compatible matches. This of course is false because those who have free accounts (who are already limited to _ # of accounts that appear), are now further limited. If someone aged 19 wanted to find other 19 year olds in their area, they are now restricted from doing so and now can only search within a range up to 23. Likewise, a 35 year old seeking other 35 years olds must now default up to 39. Again, the Grindr Gods claim you get an expanded pool. Actually, the opposite is true because filtering by one year at a time could allow you to truly find more people, even if it at the cost of geographic proximity. Grindr needs to restore choice to its customers/users instead of telling us what they think is best for us.

- Major Bug in need of Fixing

I have uninstalled and reinstalled grindr once, sometimes twice or three times a day every day for a multiple weeks. Sometimes I give up for a few days, other times I’m having a great convo and keep coming back. The problem is this… Grindr will randomly cause my phone to restart, at first I thought it was related to how many preference filters I had at once, when I reduced them nothing changed. When I turned them all off nothing changed. Once my phone restarts I’ll try to open grindr and it will shut down before the app loads. I’ve tried restarting my phone rather than reinstalling, but that doesn’t work either. Once I reinstall I’ve lost all my messages, all my photos, everything except my profile pic and info is just gone. This can be upsetting for obvious reasons, but I think the worst is that I have previously paid for a 3 month subscription which was cancelled after 1 day because of this glitch. I have not received a refund nor have I received the service I paid for. So 3 months worth of money just down the drain? For a few hours of usage? At this point I’ve given up. This app is useless, overall a terrible user experience, if you have the money to actually enjoy the apps features you’ll just lose it due to glitches and bugs. Highly recommend avoiding this app at all costs.

- Buggy and slow

Since I’ve been on the app, it’s pretty much always had issues but nothing I’ve ever felt the need to write a review for. I’m using the app on latest iPhone and iOS. My phone starts to get very slow and has huge delays in responses whenever I go to type a message. It’ll freeze halfway through, still picking up input, but doesn’t show on the screen. After that starts happening, everything in the app starts to get very slow: scrolling etc. I’ll try to swipe to my home screen or swipe to close the app and even that gets very slow to the point where my phone will lock more than 5 seconds after I press the lock button. I felt the need to explain because the experience in the app needs work and it shouldn’t carry outside of the app and into my phones user face.

- App was good until this recent update

The app was pretty good before the new changes to the XTRA and Unlimited subscriptions. The major reason why I purchased XTRA was so I can find people of interest who fit my filter searches and be able to look for people a little more outside my area. Now it seems that I am unable to communicate with people of interests if they exceeds the radius I am searching for (either that or the number of profiles XTRA members can view and interact with). It seems silly that this feature was removed from a mid-tier subscription and bumped to a more expensive subscription. I was perfectly content with purchasing XTRA for the price point with that feature but now it seems that we are paying the same amount while losing features. Unfortunately, since this was the primary reason why I purchased XTRA in the first place, I may have to drop this subscription and look for alternative apps.

- Tapping

I think the Tapping Function should be deleted on Grindr . Mostly sent by the people who tried to do dodgy to all member of grindr . They advertise being a masseurs. And created a fake location. And require to make a booking to reserve the time and date, to do that they asked you to provide credit card details and pay half amount of the service in advance . But the masseur is actually isn’t a real person . This is created by one person, but this co- founder send the advertisement about this massage service through to every member of grindr all around the world . He changed the face pic of masseur every day with different person face pic through “ The Tap function “ .But the map location is always the same address at the same hotel.

- Too many bad updates

This app could use a little of the “less is more” mantra. Too many useless updates are making it more convoluted than it should be. Also there are way too many intrusive ads, it is getting more and more expensive to upgrade and the connection seems to be getting worse and worse. For example every second message I send seems to be stuck on the “sent” status and not at least “delivered”. This leads to so many conversations dying with people who assume you’ve left the chat so to speak. I have read enough reviews on here where there seems to be a trend of people saying they were banned for no reason, conveniently straight after having paid for a premium upgrade. I can relate to this as the exact same thing happened to me on another app. Therefore I will NOT be paying a cent in upgrading until I start seeing less of these comments in the reviews. Finally, I think the quality of people are getting worse too. This is no criticism of the app itself but rather a warning to anyone considering using grindr for the first time, particularly vulnerable people. People are highly obnoxious and demand nude photos of you. Please think twice before sending nude photos, especially to blank profiles as the person on the receiving end is likely not who they claim to be. Grindr is trending more towards a porn site now than a genuine meeting, dating or hook up site and frankly I think that is sad.

- Drug dealers and fake profiles

I have been using this app on and off for years. A once very good app is now morally questionable. Since returning to American ownership the scam hit ups have decreased but not vanished. Profiles are not monitored by the app owner. They rely on their customers to dob each other in. Even then the chance of an account being banned is at best 50/50. Therefore the app is rife with fake profiles, scam profiles, and DRUG DEALERS. Drug dealers are openly using the site as their shop front to sell illegal hardcore drugs. They are often openly stating they are selling drugs so any excuse the owner has for not taking action is questionable. The site is also a regular site used by scammers posing as masseuse or people hosting ‘parties’ with links to dodgey website that will hack your device. Finally, customer service is zero. If you pay a subscription, you WILL sooner or later have that account banned (I have TWICE had my account banned interestingly on both occasions just a week or so after buying a six month subscription). Getting a response from customer service is almost impossible, and an explanation as to why your account has been banned will never come (nor did my money for my six month subscription I never got). A once good app that I still do use - but with great caution. The owners of this app have to answer for their disregard of the flagrant use of their app for illegal purposes.

- Poor experience

After downloading the app again after being off it for several months I was banned without any explanation whatsoever. I read through the guidelines and terms of use and know for a fact I did not break any rules so I emailed support for an explanation and was advised by staff member Kelly that due to privacy they would not provide an explanation... what privacy? It’s my account for crying out loud, who’s privacy are you protecting? I’m not asking you to tell me who reported me if that’s what happened all I asked for was a reason for being banned I was also told that this decision was final and as such any further queries would not be responded to which is ridiculous. How you gonna ban me then not offer and explanation and then refuse to discuss the matter. I did not break the law or any of your guidelines nor was I rude, abusive or display any toxic behaviour whilst using the app and yet I’m unable to appeal or get any sort of reasoning for your actions. If by chance I did break some rule I should at least be advised as to what I did that warranted this decision The whole situation is absurd and I am disgusted by your response

- Wow

So I’ve always heard about Grindr as a younger gay male, I’ve heard it was good for getting out there and also that it is a very gross environment. From what I experienced it was really good and helped me interact with people I would have never have met, I found it quite charming in all honestly. Except when I got a permanent ban a week after getting it, I was confused and went through all the guidelines to find out what I had breached but I really couldn’t put a finger on it. I didn’t send inappropriate messages, my bio wasn’t vulgar like most others, I was of legal age. Then I thought it was my profile picture, it was rather attractive photo of myself so my friend put it on their account they don’t use as a test and got permanently banned, do I look underage, do they find I’m a fake account, I wouldn’t have a clue because they don’t give any reason or explanation or warning for permanently blacklisting your number. I tried to appeal then I read online most don’t even get a reply to that. So thanks for the experience I’ll try to be less attractive in the future

- Constant crashing

I am a frequent user and enjoy using Grindr. But recently updated has caused the app crashing unexpectedly. Not only it crashes, but app needs to be deleted and reinstalled so it can be opened otherwise it will keep crashing immediately when trying to open. This can be very frustrating, especially in the middle of conversation, once it reinstalled, all chats history are gone. I’m not sure anyone else experienced this issue as well and I hope Grindr can look into this and fix the bug so it can run smoothly again. Appreciate all the help. ❤️‍🩹

- If only I could give 0 stars

Wow, this app used to be somewhat decent a while back and one day it just suddenly changed. Nowadays there are constant bots, spammers, fakes and drug dealers/escorts that are somehow getting onto the app and ruining the experience for everyone. The “Guidelines” that are supposedly set for people’s profiles are clearly fake and prioritise certain people. I’ve been denied putting certain pics up due to being sexually suggestive or otherwise (someone explain to me how a drink is sexually suggestive?) whilst many other people get away with being nude or doing sexual acts or even having pornographic content in their profiles. I’ve reported quite a few of these people due to the unfairness and yet they still have those pics up, in fact some have even added more grotesque one’s and yet nothing. The App is a waste of time, money and storage I don’t recommend this to anyone, I suggest looking elsewhere.

- Don’t use Grindr.

After using it for years, I was banned. No explanation. Nothing. The amount of abuse I copped from people, was disgusting. Nothing was ever done. But Grindr banned me for no reason whatsoever. The people who run the app are all useless at their job. I’m not the only one who has had issues with the app considering the amount of negative reviews. That’s so bad for customers to all be getting banned for no reason and the lack of explanation or help. Do the people who run it want to have their app closed down because they’re doing everything right for it to head in that direction. Sad. Don’t bother wasting your time, money or effort on such a garbage app. They clearly don’t care about its customers, just allowing scammers, bots and bullies to run rampant. Disgusting and not surprising at all. They only care about their pay check.

- Going into 4th day without a working app

App crashed on Sunday, I contacted the team and have had no solution provided! They haven’t even bothered to wind it back to an older version of the app that at least opened! Incredibly disappointed by this. Shame it’s the main app that guys use otherwise I would have just moved on! Have had no updates from support team and the only response I get is they have no solution. Glad I don’t pay for this app! After this experience I likely never will pay for it! I hope they get their act together! This is just pathetic! App is constantly crashing, won’t open or load pictures. Keep losing chats. I hope someone else can develop a better app and we can leave this app to its death finally. Nothing but bad reviews lately and they do nothing to fix it.

- Ruined by incognito

Incognito - in which users can avoid showing themselves as being online. The result: they can’t be sized up by anyone else, unless they approach or view someone who isn’t incognito, and even then, only that small proportion of visible ones can ever see them. As the proportion using incognito increases - and I reckon that proportionn is pretty high in my region - the app become pointless. An ever increasing number of the most desirable guys are invisible. But the invisible ones, those who use incognito, may just as well not bother to use the app, because those invisible ones can never ever see other invisible ones. How to ruin a dating app: allow 'incognito'. Congrats to you, Grindr. Your shortsightedness has achieved the ruination of your own app.

- Constant erroring

Since the beginning of this year, at least once a month, my Grindr errors and restarts my entire phone. When my phone is finished rebooting, I am no longer able to open my Grindr and have to delete and reinstall the app. If I haven’t backed up my chats recently, everything is lost. Makes me want to stop using this app, but unfortunately I’m the small area I live in no one uses anything else. Otherwise I’d be done with Grindr. The first time it happened I lost years of conversation, all because it only auto backs up chats when on background refresh, and why would I want that active?! Somethings the glitch happens if I scroll down the browsing list too quickly, local and exploring, sometimes when I click on a message. Please fix this

- Grindr icon feature

Why isn’t the Grindr Icon in the app still being used to take you to the top of the grid/page, instead it does nothing. when we get to the bottom we have to scroll all the way back to the top and this is somewhat annoying!!!.

- Updates

Every time you do updates there is a issue, since the last update was up load to my phone can not ever log on. How much do you test updates before uploading them?? Like not very much get your act together if you want people to pay for your service So now it been 5 days since dealing with customer support still no access to the service I have paid for. Customer support said the were fixing the issues as they were aware last email sent to them for update still no response great customer service I also would like to know what are they going to do with my paid service as it was fault I still do not have access??????. I bet there responds on here is contact customer support what a joke

- Horrible app

Grindr has never served me well in any instance, iv been sexuality assaulted , verbally abused when I used this app to meet guys and have constantly felt that I wasn’t worth anyone’s time and just ugly in general from using this app. And the funny thing is I’m not bad looking. Every health relationship iv been in has been with somebody who I have NOT met online. Guys delete this app and go out and met guys in clubs or at your local gay community group. I met my partner at his place of work and asked for his number. Cmon let’s get rid of Grindr today

- Gross negligence

Quite simply one of the worst cases of negligence on the internet. The app is rife with sexual harassment, catfishing, spam accounts, as well as some of the most disgustingly obnoxious people, who feel it’s appropriate to open conversation with a nude pic. They don’t protect their users, they don’t do anything to verify anyone, accounts are allowed to be entirely blank while they perv on all the others and then pop up and harass people. Yet, if you call them out, you’re more likely to get cautioned or even banned, than they are. It’s the most toxic culture, where people do things that are blatantly wrong or unethical, and just expect to get blocked and move onto the next person instead. How Grindr hasn’t been sued for negligence yet is a miracle!

- Has VERY major bug

For past 2 months the app has been useless. It works for a day or so and then refuses to open and regularly crashes my iPhone And please don’t give your standard response about reaching out to your Help Team, just fix things. Review after review is telling you there is a problem. And for paying users, you are taking their money without providing the service. Refund their money or extend their subscription.

- terms and service need to be modernised

Upgrading my 1 star rating to two star with a message that hopefully get the attention of the development team. Messages are constantly not sending without the sender noticing until some time later when a particular message is opened and the status of the message states “sending”. Usually once this occurs it will happen to every message after the first message that got stuck on sending state occurred but not always. Usually resolves by quitting the app and relaunching and physically going into each message and hitting resend on each message. however sometimes this takes multiple attempts. To the reviewer below winging about Tabs and requesting they are removed. GRINDR has already implemented an option to opt out of taps what more do you want? Half of Grindr users are not bothered with taps so you either have the option to opt out of taps of simply not check taps you receives doesn’t need to be a big deal.

- Grindr now won’t work on iPad

I went to download the lastest version of Grindr on my ipad. It’s says now Grindr will not work on my iPad as I have a older iOS My iPad has a 12 version iOS and won’t allow me to up date any more versions. I’m a regular subscribed paid Grindr user but now can not use Grindr. Can the lastest Grindr version be updated to work please with older iOS 12 please. Or can I use an older version of Grindr ,,, if so how do I load it onto iPad ?

- Bleeding your wallet dry

A year ago, this app had reach an ideal state with a polished user experience. But in order to squeeze every possible dollar out of you, they're relentlessly making just about everything paid and expensive. In such a short time, you can no longer see who viewed your profile or albums shared over a week ago without paying $56AUD a month. It's hands down the most expensive popular dating app. Before long, I'm sure you'll have to pay to see your chat history. I understand the need to cover the cost of business but offer something more affordable. At least for people outside the US.

- Grindr support is garbage

The support team for this app are either bots or just the dumbest humans to be employed. They have no idea how to fix an issue. When they get stuck, just simply just stop responding to you. I’ve contacted about 6 different support persons, to which I receive the same generic responses and then silence… Talk about ghosting, these guys take the cake. Utterly disgusting approach for a company. You guys should be ashamed. And they respond to my comment here telling me to contact the exact same email that have been either ignoring me or telling me they don’t know how to fix the issue. Stop pretending like you care about anything other then money!

- Was good. Massive glitches now

Grindr - when it is working - is a great app for meeting new guys. Recently though it keeps crashing my phone and I have no choice but to fully delete the app off my phone and reinstall it (no offloading or anything). The daily backups are not enough to fix this problem. I contacted support about a month ago and have yet to hear back about the issue being resolved, meanwhile I am paying for Grindr xtra which I am essentially not able to use. This needs to be rectified quickly for the app to got back to being 4-5 stars.

- My final review and experience

Banned once, banned forever. Ive been a long time user and im really upset with how ive been treated by support staff who see my case as “unimportant” sending them an email will not suffice with getting any form of my original account back. I’m sure some homophobic user is loving that i can no longer access my account. I have been awfully abused, ive been told to commit suicide, ive been told “i’m too feminine”. Ive been told i’m ugly. This behaviour from YOUR ceo is considered acceptable and whilst i have never harmed anyone physically or criticised their body, you allow them to stay. Genuine people are being turned away by Grindr who is now a multi million dollar platform. I cant wait to see the day grindr declares bankruptcy or even signs off for good. Its done more harm to the LGBTIQ community than good. The ceo does not care about the sexual health and sexual safety of its users. Get better staff who care about what they do. Your team is useless. Its 2022. Not 1950.

- Fun police

Don’t do anything on Grindr. They’ll just ban you for breathing, probably. There’s no humanity on Grindr anymore, and instead of it being a social media app it’s just a policed space where everyone gets reported. Waste of time, go out to a bar instead. You may actually make a connection with someone real. You may even manage to avoid fake profiles and puff and play losers, too. Don’t bother trying to get customer support; Grindr seemingly cannot be bothered with it but they very quickly respond to reviews on the App Store. Curious. It’s as if they want money from subscribers without actually caring about users.

- more ad than app

every update brings more ads and no added function. every time a new feature is added it reduces the usability by just being another tab that can house ads. and the ads are evermore intrusive. NO ad should be able to open a separate app on my phone. also why do we need to see who has viewed us? just so we can reject people without ever having to interact? seriously tho. give all the advertisers their money back and strip grindr back to the way it was in the first few years. if you don't plan to improve it why spend money on “developing” it?

- Account ban?

I have literally never made an account before and received the phone off a friend, he has obviously used the phone to make an account and get permanently banned, I try to make an account and I’m instantly banned, I tried to explain this to the support team but it kept coming to the same conclusion, to bad so sad type thing, I’m beyond disappointed.

- The new grindr is frankly confusing

Gone are the days of simply swiping left to sort by filter. Now there are three separate lines of options on the main page (Profile, "Seen by", Filters; secondly Nearby, Fresh guys, Explore; and finally, Starred, Browse, Chat, Xtra) muddling things and making it a mess of an app. Throw in the spambots still trying to get you to visit links outside of the app, and the lack of action from reporting certain profiles that should not be on the app, and yeah, three stars is generous actually.

- Too slow for sending msgs

When I sent my pics, the indication shows me that the receivers have read my msgs and got pics I sent. (I’m a paid member) But receivers sometimes complain that they haven’t got my pics and blamed me who asked to show me their pics. I definitely sent my pics !! Other then, Thank you so much for your hard work all the time.

- Problematic since it’s inception

Grindr Xtra has been problematic since it first came out. It doesn’t matter how many times you message them to fix something, it’s constantly buggy, things don’t get fixed. They upgrade the app without fixing the problems, and now they have a nerve to bombard you with messages and advertising to upgrade to their unlimited feature! Fix the one I’m paying for first before asking me to upgrade! Why would I pay more for a problematic app?! Seriously! You can’t even block people, so what’s the point having a block feature.

- Great app to meet others

I have used Grindr for years as well as many other apps but still find Grindr the best as the messages are more instant, the navigation is easiest and the features as well as the filters work the best, also the support is great. I definitely recommend it for anyone else who wants to meet other people.

- Do you actually do anything when you ‘update’ your app?

Each time I update absolutely nothing changes ... the same bugs are still there. Freezes still there. Location services are off message constantly. No internet connection message constantly. Profile pics won’t load unless quit and restart app constantly. This has been ongoing for almost a year. And also your app no longer shows up in app centre updates. Only way to find out is by searching in the App Store and checking it there. Not worth a cent

- Poor performing App

I have had this for years and I must say I am very disappointed in the functionality in the last 3 months, slow, sluggish and since the last update major operating issues, I tap on a profile and goes to the very first profile and is half screen. Come on Grindr we are all paying for this service you need to get it sorted for your customers. Stop upgrading and adding new features you think will improve the users experience. I’m speaking for myself and most likely others STOP making changes!

- Worst app on the App Store

I have used Grindr from the beginning, and this is truly the worst app I have ever used on the App Store. Last night my sleeping app crashed and I had to restart my phone and Grindr was the only app that stopped working. This is the 2nd time in about 2 weeks this has happened. No point to contacting support as they ignore or don’t follow up on the issues. Plus the ads are still awful and so many gambling ads! And they pop up after only one message sent. Can’t even back up chats and I keep loosing them. So many bugs

- Cannot update iOS

I use an old model iPhone for Grindr and I am unable to use it any more because I am forced to update to the latest version, which requires an iOS version that I cannot install on my old device. I really don’t think app developers should exclude people from using older devices if they wish to do so. It worked perfectly well on this device with the previous version but I am being forced to update to something that I simply cannot do without updating my entire device.

- Worst app

This app takes free ad-supported to a ridiculous level. Every interaction or action tried (view, block, message) is met with a 30 second ad. Can’t even say hey to someone without wasting 2 minutes on ads. The app doesn’t even function properly anyway. What a waste of time UPDATE: I don’t need a stupid response telling me what ads are for. That’s nonsensical. The point is the inundating and sheer volume. It just makes sense that this app is so bad seeing as the developers can’t even tell what the point of my feedback was.

- $$$

I have been on this app on and off for a few years, the last couple of times I paid for the extras. Just signed up recently and getting frustrated that you can only send a few pix on a daily pix or a message jump up that I must upgrade. This is getting ridiculous, because Grindr already got so many advertisers on their app that pops up every couple of minutes. Hope their will be a better app in the near future so we can dump this one.

- So many fake profiles!

The amount of daily, repetitive messages from different accounts makes you wonder whether the team at Grindr gave up trying to root these scams out or whether they’ve built this traffic into their business model. It’s particularly apparent in smaller cities. Grindr needs to improve its account verification process and do better to pick up on scam messages before they are delivered to actual users. It ruins what is otherwise a fun social app...

- The most buggy app out there

Since Grindr has gone crazy with ad placement it constantly crashes, freezes, clogs, jams, and then crashes my actual phone. I’ve tried everything, clear cache every 5 minutes, delete and reload app, which of course deletes all history. Every update they release says ‘improvements with less bugs’.. Actually all the updates do is ad more advertising, which makes the performance worse and worse. Here’s an idea Grindr: rather than destroy your user experience with ads, make subscriptions cheap enough for everyone to pay. Of course that would go against the greed that Grindr has come to show in recent years. Support is useless. They tell me: ‘send a screen recording’… my message to them: sort out your advertising bug issues and make the app good to use

- Totally rubbish and a rip off

What a waste at Christmas I was offered a month half price but what did that get me the ability to see more people and to see a few of the members that had checked out my profile. Why does an app like Grindr need different levels of membership and who on earth would pay over $ 50 for one month of unlimited membership.. get real make it dirt cheap and offer more then people might part with their cash. Grindr is dying rubbish. You will never get another cent out of me again.

- GrindrXtra keeps closing now.

Why does my GrindrXtra keeps closing now. This feature is one of my favourites. Previously it stopped my phone from going into sleep mode. Not sure about the new changes. What's happened to my favourites. Can't search can't see on line favourites.

- More catfish and scammers than real people

Doesn’t matter how much we report, never makes a difference. There are more scammers here trying to direct you to a website taking your credit card details than there are genuine people. BEWARE of guys appearing to be close by (VPN) and saying they want you to enter your credit card to a website for their “safety”. They are scammers looking to charge your card and this app doesn’t care at all. They do nothing when you report the scammers at all.

- Xtra is now worthless

After renewing an Xtra subscription, I noticed that half the features have suddenly disappeared. You can’t see who tapped you more than a few minutes ago. And you can’t open the profiles of people who viewed you. It makes both these ‘features’ useless. Less functionality but Grindr is still charging the same price - and no prior-notice of the change. “We care about our members” - what rubbish! Overpriced and under-performing

- Crashing constantly.

Last week my app kept crashing for no reason & would crash on startup. I recently paid for the extra service, and today the app crashed on startup again. I’m still locked out of the app with notifications coming in and nothing in troubleshooting has worked. I wouldn't recommend the paid service since the app often doesn't work reliably. Months later and the app crashes my phone every day.

- Fails to block, deliver messages & notifications with no messages

Blocks *still* don’t work in latest update 21 November 2022. Nice way to protect people’s safety Grindr. Refresh isn’t working. Messages aren’t delivered in real time. This app should disable screen shots/force watermarks, enable blocking applied device to device because scam accounts are re-created too easily. Use automatic reverse image searching. Force an entity verification or utilise online ID verification. No more stalkers. No more laziness from Grindr. Get your act together.


I have recently been stalked, catfished, led to a location for a hookup and nearly attacked. As I got away on my car the back window was smashed in by half a brick. I can only assume that it was meant for me. You HAVE TO DO BETTER! The album feature is great. Please promote the video feature more a a way to verify or come up with some way to do so!

- Great if you want a massage

So many massage services it’s actually getting ridiculous. Something has to be done to control this, it’s become so frequent that 9/10 I can now pic them out just from their profile pics. This is otherwise a great app for hookups, although there is a saying that people use - get on to never get off. A lot of time wasters, not Grindr’s fault though

- pretty poor

for an app that is desperate for everyone to pay to use it, their constant crashing & needing to be totally rre-installed not updated causi g loss of all data, doesn’t give much desire to actually pay. Why would you pay for something so annoying? get your act together people.

- Banned after years

I have used Grinder for years. Today I went to open it and I was banned. After requesting a review, I received an email claiming the decision was final and a reason for the ban could not be provided for safety and privacy reasons. No reason and no idea what I’ve supposedly done. And what is worse there is no avenue to appeal. You have community guidelines yet you test your members so disrespectfully. The law says innocent until proven guilty yet for Grinder its guilty without being able to defend. Goodbye and good riddance.

- Updates

Downloaded the new updates 2 days ago and cannot get back onto it Does not load anything Using I phone 8 Have turned to phone off and one bit still nothing Please update and fix

- Goodbye Grindr?

I’ve just been told, by ‘support’ that unless I update my device and operating system, I won’t be able to use the app again. I could use it last week? Why can’t I use the version from then? I don’t have the funds for a newer phone and seeing there’s no desktop app..... I wonder if paying members using an older iPhone are being bumped as well, or is this just a way of dumping a whole lot of free users at once. Anyone got a work around?

- Not worth it

A lot of functions you’d expect from typical dating apps are not available unless you pay a heap of money for a subscription. The amount of ads is astonishing, and not to mention the endless banning of accounts. I have never once violated a guideline yet somehow, people who may have reported me (for not wanting to hookup with them), gets believed with no questions asked. Definitely a hassle to use, not to mention completely drains your battery like no other.

- Mmmm

Idk bruh kinda gay

- Full of spammers

Horrible! Abide by every rule. Never done anything except be nice. And get banned right after telling a ‘sugar daddy’ who wants to do some bitcoin favours that I reported him to crime stoppers. This app is full of human traffickers and spammers. You get reprimanded for standing up to both.

- Freezing!!

The app is messing up with my phone! You guys have so many ads that slow the motion of your app… and that sucks to be honest; it’s to heavy! Fix it

- intrusive advertising

auto plays adds that automatically open multiple apps and redirects. no option to opt out or close add before the redirect to advertiser’s app store

- Garbage App - Banned

After being user for five years, often on I decided to pay a full year subscription which expires March 2021, for no just cause a reason explain to me they just simply banned my account and my device. In order to reactivate I had to write a PhD explanation asking why I was banned. In the end there was no reply back from grindr, they have full control, you have no control. I wanted a credit but no credit was given. I hope grindr sinks into the abyss , along with his people.

- Better off free, beware of spam

Glitchy app riddled with spam. Subscription way over priced for such a buggy app.

- This application is bugged filled

This application has a bug in it where, when you try to view a profile it jumps to another. I have deleted cache, signed out and deleted the app and reinstalled several times, I am not a subscriber but wouldn’t even consider paying $300/ year for this given it performance and the lack of support

- Banned for being MYSELF

Just a trans woman on this app... this app has no consideration for women like me . Since we all know men have sexuality complex issues— straight men come on this out of discretion and expect anyone to take care of there needs- I politely reject the ones I’m not into—- they can’t take rejection and boom, I get banned!!! I wrote to Grindr team explaining them these men are f_____ and it’s not my fault that I have a voice and standards etc, they do not unban me but rather ignore me... it’s obvious that this team rather put d__ first than humanity.... it’s too bed cause these men still back to their wives... they will never be Grindr teams bfs.. anyhow just overall disappointed.

- Garbage

Works until you actually want it to, then it refuses to refresh for no reason whatsoever. This app doesn’t even come close to rewarding enough to put up with constant pics or being asked for pics. Avoid like the coronavirus.

- Love it

I love all the big dick

- porn causing eyes to determinate faster if watching Porn in the dark!

Porno casting amateur hours with limited vetting required for standard village area coffee shop and fast food initiative initially meeting areas near safe and some sounding village designed designated area for same sex marriage service seeking individuals for increased inclusion of love for 2 or more people of the same sex group data database dating experiences with limited damage done to bars and clubs services!

- Spam

A lot of spammers to login to certain fake website and telling that it is safe because they don’t feel safe if you don’t register in that website and lot of fake sugar daddies to get your phone number or PayPal info If you received any thing like this block him there is no point to report the cycle continues..

- Take their position for granted

You can tell this app is number one from the number of bugs they don’t bother (and don’t have) to repair. Spam takes up all the bandwidth, profiles don’t load and then … crash! Use Scruff.

- Terrible

Literally so pathetic I’ve been banned for the stupidest things and when I tried to make an appeal nobody has gotten back to me. Terrible reporting system and customer service I see

- Ads

“Ads help keep grindr free” If true then why ask me to pay for premium service to access all your amazing features? If ads keep free shouldn't all features be free? Including the premium ones.

- Real sad

It still blows my mind that Grindr pulls in as much if not more than what PlayStation asks for their monthly subscription, but all you people are doing with it is making a half working, glitched out app. 🤦‍♂️ Each and every time I come back to the app, something new breaks. Currently profiles show up twice when clicking on them. Making for a particularly terrible UX. Not to mention that you nerfed the blocking feature so that people can’t block truly unlimitedly

- Used to be good

Grindr has become a money sucking machine. Trying to charge outrageous prices for an app that keeps crashing and cannot even save your messages. It really doesn’t feel like grindr wants you to meet other people. It feels like grindr wants to make money!

- Not Refreshing?

I’ve deleted and redownloaded the app. My other apps work fine. Whenever I try to star or un-star a profile a red banner appears and then nothing happens. It’s very frustrating!


You don’t even click on anything and you browser opens because of an AD coming from Grindr. This is so against Apple’s conduct that this app might be taken down soon, so keep up with you reports to apple guys. Enough of treating us as clowns with all those out of control ads that won’t stop opening.

- Stupid 3 year filter is back

You guys took this dumb 3 year filter off with the second last update and now after updating again within 5 days you’ve put it back. What is the point of this app if you just restrict all the features. Hate this app more and more. Stop penny-pinching people to spend hundreds a year on a chat app. So dumb.

- Removing paid features

I subscribe to Xtra expressly because of the advanced filters. As of today my advanced age filter no longer allows filtering by less than a 4 year range. This is the second time that Grindr has removed or substantially restricted paid features from the app with no warning. Don't subscribe, the company that owns the app clearly has no respect for its paid users.

- Useless

9 profiles until you pay?? No thanks. I’ll stay nothing before I feed you 30) per month

- Ads

The free version has abusive ads.

- Exploitive

0 stars if possible after their response. OG review: Grindr is almost a requirement of the lgbt community if you want to connect in a safe way. They know this and take advantage. They constantly changes features and adds more ads in order to entice people to buy their increasingly overpriced services. (ie. taking a feature that was once free and restricting it until it’s almost pointless) The amount of ads actually causes my phone to overheat, it is the only app that does so. in addition to this, the ads themselves seem to violate the policies set out by the app store as they don’t have clearly labeled things to close them all the time and in most cases open the app store when you hit the x unless you wait for about 5 seconds after the x shows up. response from company is generic and pointless. If any of that is true explain how you’re helping the lgbt community by limiting the newly updated to 9 profiles when it used to be much more. grindr is the most popular gay app, therefor you have the best chances of finding a community on it, so explain how having prices that are more than double (not even for unlimited) compared to other dating apps is not taking advantage of a community who faces violence and hate crimes when trying to interact off the apps. exploitive is the nicest word to describe anyone making any decisions at this company.

- Ban for life

Very frustrated with this silly app. They ban people for life over nothing and I just can’t use it again. Why not do Facebook and ban little by little till you are doing weeks, months years depending how many issues you really cause. I’m very disappointed and will be tell everyone to watch out they ban for nothing.

- Worst dating app EVER

I’ve dealt with crappy foreign knockoffs that do it better than Grindr. They barely follow their own rules, will ban you for the most benign reasons. Example; I got banned for telling a Chinese guy I’m not interested in asians.... ?!?! How the holy hell is that offensive?? I’m not sexist for telling a girl I’m not into girls? The mods are power tripping over stupid crap like that, yet did nothing when a guy was stalking me with multiple accounts and profiles. I couldn’t even block him because you need to PAY TO BLOCK SOMEONE HARRASSING YOU. Not to mention nearly every time you open a profile, swipe a profile, or do anything that requires opening something you get at least 1-2 ads if not more. My advice? Use anything BUT Grindr

- Limitations and crashes

So you’ve limited the fresh page to 9 profiles when before it wasn’t much more than that anyways, or at least profiles within 10km. Also your app crashes and is full of bots. Yet you think it’s worth the insane price you’re asking for xtra or unlimited! Ridiculous.

- Limits and Ad everywhere

Limits on everything; albums received, fresh page, near by page, explore search Etc. The app is just passing you into subscription so they can make more money. It’s getting out of hand. Oh, and constant ads.

- wow…

Not only the app is filled with annoying ads, but you now restricted the new member tab to 9 profile!? Like if it wasn’t already limited before.. I am not paying 25$ a week for a subscription. Forget it.

- Pretty toxic culture

Easily one of the worst 2SLGBTQ+ hookup/dating apps around. The culture is pretty toxic, and there’s no way to report abusive behaviour if the other conversant blocks you first. You’re just a product on here. Your data sold to powerful firms, and your body poorly advertised to other poor blokes ‘n folks- And that’s even before the ads are accounted for. Do yourself a favour: go support your local affirming bar and social scene in person instead.

- Terrible app

I barley use this app and one day I went on it to just browse see who’s new or whatever charted with people I had chatted with before you know the usual that I get off and went back on and my account was banned for nothing than I tried making new accounts and every single one has been banned before I could even make the profile. I’ve reached out to them abt the issues and they didn’t help me at all

- Getting worst each time.


- Banned

I got band from grinder for no reason I have been on the appt for10 so years I don’t get it

- They charge for everything

These people have gotten so greedy over the years. They charge for people to see you, that was a deal breaker for me. Like people won’t see you unless you pay. Everyone here has a fake profile, been “catfished” many times. Really bad energy this app

- Too much spam

Every day I get multiple taps from false accounts trying to get me to sign up to an East Europe dating app if you sign your visa / MasterCard will be compromise Interesting that it’s so bad here and not on other dating apps also so expensive way way

- Terrible

The worst app ever should be taken down don’t use this app lots of fakes on here

- Ads are now brutal and intrusive

Ads are overriding my audio and stopping media from playing in the background while using the app. Overwhelming ads that force you to click to close are obtuse. Prob done with the app

- App for the wealthy

$500 CDN for a 1 Year Subscription. ARE YOU NUTS? Make it A LOT more reasonable, like $75 -$120 a year and I would subscribe. In fact I’m certain more would as well.

- Money

So much money, lower your prices

- It won’t open

The app simply won’t open, I upgraded my iOS and the app itself but it crashes before it even opens

- Total crap

How does this app get a 4.4 rating out of 5 when all the reviews are horrible at one star? It crashes all the time. Haven’t been able to open it for more than two months. Support just placates and says they are working on it. Glad I didn’t pay for it. Just awful.

- Cant open the app

App is glitching and not opening up

- Lol

Just a bunch of fake profile/catfisher/spammer in this app

- Account wrongfully banned, no customer service, BBB complaint filed

Account got banned just because I switched phones, and customer service only replies with template response. In addition to their crap buggy software, they also enjoy banning users for no actual reason and never following up on why they were banned or how to fix it. Please visit the subreddit r/Grindr on Reddit and feel free to browse through and see the same complaint over and over. Users stating they were banned, their confusion over why, and the lack of response from Grindr’s so-called “customer service”. Edit: you know what’s sickening? That the developer’s response is the only indication anyone on grindr’s team has actually read my complaint, unlike the INFINITE AMOUNT OF BAN APPEALS I’VE ALREADY SENT!!!!!!!

- Ads

Was okay before they got greedy now there is ads every five mins not cool

- Idk what the flop you guys did

If you guys are gonna push adds on us to "keep it free" and make profit, thats one thing. However, your aggressive add pushing and activity tracking should be slowing a current gen device to a crawl, even in other apps.

- Gross website sex trafficking not a queer site

Just bunch losers here addictions Etc get rid of this loser dumb site illegal. Get rid of this website it’s just feeding peoples addictions not healing anyone

- Hot mess

There are sooooo many fake profiles with endless requests for pictures by dubious picture harvesters. I only just learned of the CCP BUY OUT!! Which explains a lot! For an app that is supposed to be for GAY MEN there are too many trans and cross dressing fetish profiles INVADING A MALE SPACE. Do you see men invading a CURVES GYM?? I think not. So why is it ok for this woke non sense to invade our space?

- App sucks.

Ads are super obnoxious and annoying. Appear way to frequent and slow down the app. App crashed today and couldn’t be opened without deleting and reinstalling the app. Lost all messages in the last 7 months. Wouldn’t be an issue if like every other app, saves your messages without creating a back up. No verification feature means was too many bots, cat fishing, and spam. Unresponsive support team that answers with a bit response. There may be people facilitating customer support but they don’t actually try to solve anyone’s issues. Profiles are the most limiting of any dating app. Fewest pictures, smallest bio description Prices for the app are higher than every other competition and offers the worst perks in comparison. Super not worth it. I think it’s high time to find a different app to use as my main one.

- Slow, ad infested, and constantly crashing

Ads are shoved in your face after literally every single button press in the app. Every time you try to close them it brings you to their store page. Each add also hides the x button to keep you from pressing it. The app itself is so glitchy and slow, it runs through my battery like crazy and I’ve had to reinstall it twice losing all my chats in the past week due to the app crashing on startup. This app desperately needs a bug fixing update and less ads.
