Bots (Otherwise a great app!)

Grindr has improved so much over the years and I’m happy to be in a place where I can message friends, make new friends, and simply feel the joy I get in talking to kind strangers.

The following is specifically for developers. I was wondering if it would be possible when going to report a profile if you added a “bot” option, like a different variation of spam. Lately there have been a TON of bot profiles that follow this exact formula:

- [Generic first name] + [random letter] (ex. Neil A)
- the bio is always [common interest] + [synonym for expert] repeated in 3 variations (ex. Pop culture specialist. Typical travel guru. Hardcore entrepreneur.)
- then there’s a link to either “rate my shaft” or “nearby males” or something like that.
- also they only ever have 1 profile pic, never multiples

If there was a way for us to report bot accounts like this to get them removed quickly, I’d really appreciate it! I’ve seen up to 10 of these within a 100 profile grid, which reduces REAL profile visibility by 10%. I want people to see me instead of these bots first!

Okay thank you for listening! Grindr is otherwise a fantastic app for making connections that does it in a way no other app can right now. Appreciate your efforts :~)

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.

We understand not all users will utilize the app for the purpose it was created and find different ways to disturb those that are looking to find a genuine connection. Rest assured that we are already working on new ways to better moderate content and activities that breach our Guidelines.

I see my critical review has been deleted. So I’ll repeat it:
I was banned on September 30th and have not been given a reason why. I did notice that when I uploaded a picture, where I was totally clothed after complaining about several pics of people in underwear, my picture was not approved for nudity. SMH . I asked what was wrong with it and they immediately banned me. Now there are people in jockstraps and underwear pics, which violate Grindr’s guidelines. Their profiles and pictures are still there. Of course they are younger and of a much lighter hue than me. UPDATE: Grindr unbanned me only to ban me again. This time they claimed I changed my picture so they thought I was a bot. SMH. After going through their unbanning process they realized my profile was real and unbanned my profile but not my number. So I can still can’t access an app I have consistently paid for. How idiotic is this company and the people that work there. Two custom service representatives “helped” me and now I’m back where I started from. Grindr doesn’t want paid customers of color they want bots !
4 days later and no reply for customer support.
