There’s nothing more important to me than our users — we owe our success to our Grindr community who have helped spread the word about their great experiences. Your security and the security of our platform is a core priority. Like other responsible companies, we don’t comment on specifics of security enhancements or allegations about network issues – that wouldn’t serve the security of our users, our networks, or web security in general. As a result of Grindr’s ongoing investigation, we took legal and technological actions to block a site that violated our terms of service. This site impacted a small number of primarily Australian Grindr users and it remains shut down.
We continuously make improvements to our platform to increase security across our networks. We are releasing a mandatory update to our apps over the next few days to enhance security. When the update is available, users will be notified via in-app messaging, on Twitter and on this blog post. Our users can be assured that Grindr does not retain chat history, credit card information, or addresses – and no such information was ever compromised.
While we’re always looking at ways to enhance the Grindr experience and keep our user data secure, we also rely on you, the Grindr community to help us keep Grindr safe. Please report any suspicious incidents that you may come across by emailing email@example.com.
