Restrictions applied to adult content by your Internet Service Provider administrators can sometimes cause connection issues. Unfortunately, we have very little control over this as these restrictions are controlled by the government.
We recommend either contacting the network administrator for more details or attempting to connect via another Wi-Fi network or 4G to see if this is indeed the issue. Internet censorship may prevent members from accessing Grindr in the following countries:
Government restricted countries:
We understand VPNs have been used in these regions but cannot guarantee that their use will be effective.
- United Arab Emirates
Using a VPN here will unfortunately not work, because Grindr is unavailable in these territories for the time being.
- Crimea (Occupied region of Ukraine)
- North Korea
Countries where Grindr is delisted from the app store:

Note: If you choose to use a VPN please check local laws about VPN usage.
