App has a good and bad rating

I have been in there almost a year and and got into a little disagreement over something that wasn’t a big deal. What happened next was weird because I was trading pictures then there was a flash and my pictures were gone. I thought it was the guy I was talking to and said nothing back to me. So I got off the app and I get a text on my phone and guess what my pictures were on my phone and the next text I get is blackmail threat saying if I don’t send him $5000 he will send my pictures to my friends and family and gave me one minute to make my decision. Then I remember what friend told me to do is stand up to this person and I did and he disappeared. Now this picture stealing happen to me three more time and on top of that I wrote support and they did not do anything about it and it still goes on in this app and this is why I gave it two stars. I don’t understand why Apple would allow a app to promote criminals on this app and keep this app in their store. And I have been talking to attorney and he said I have a case against two parties involved.

Hi Hogan,

We're sorry you had this experience.We absolutely do not condone this type of behavior and are working really hard to remove these types of people and profiles from the app.

We hope you don't continue to come across these situations, but, if you do, please report them immediately and reach out to our support team at

We thoroughly investigate every report that we receive and, when there's strong evidence, we ban people who behave like this permanently from the app.

Just don’t.

So... I posted a review for this app a week ago or so, and it has magically disappeared.

This app is, and I cannot emphasize this enough, a terrifying and dangerous place for those to connect/hookup/chat. Most of the people on here epitomize exactly what the gays claim they “aren’t” or “don’t want to become.” It is full of drug dealing, using, self absorbed individuals who think what they bring to the table is the best thing to have ever graced this planet. There are people who use this app to try and get a sugar daddy because they’re of the generation that doesn’t want to work for anything and hope some naive older gentleman will fall for their kindness and buy them things. There are profiles on here that are nothing but spam - look for the ones that have a Pearup screen name in the little “about me” section. I’ve reported them a thousand times, but no matter how many times I do, they constantly appear, and it’s usually the same photographs of the same guys over and over and over again. If you insist on using this app, at best I’d use the free version - I used to pay for it (what a waste), but then began to realize that it just isn’t worth it. I’m attempting to get ahold of Apple to report it to the App Store for clear and blatant violations of their developer agreements for not controlling their users better and ensuring they aren’t violent, dangerous, drug using hypocrites.

Grindr is the most unsafe backwards dating app

I’ve used Grindr on and off for a few years. When I moved to my new house I started exploring more and redone loaded the app to try to find some interesting people. Immediately I was stalked, had my pictures stolen in an attempt to find out where I live, and threatened. When I reported the user they immediately created a new account. This went on multiple days until they finally gave up. Months later now, and I’m back looking on this app. Now my account has been banned for literally no reason and grindr support has been awful about giving any information. I did not violate tos and I did nothing wrong. I get the feeling that the report function is not monitored at all and if someone doesn’t like you or you say no and they don’t like that they can report you and have your account banned for no reason. Not only is the app unsafe and scary, but the people who run it DO NOT care about their users in the slightest, do nothing to make the app better, over charge for premium features that should be standard in every dating app. And now they are allowing bans for no reason and doing nothing to justify it. No reason given, the appeal form is a joke, and so is this app. Stay safe and avoid Grindr at all costs.
