Grindr users can configure their Grindr app to open to a “Enter Security PIN” screen where they must enter a 4-digit pin to start Grindr. You can also hide your app using the Discreet App Icon option, which disguises the Grindr icon as something more discreet like a camera or calculator app. This feature was developed for Grindr users in countries where being LGBTQ may put people in the most danger, like the countries where being gay is punishable by the death penalty. It is available to users in the rest of the world as part of Grindr Xtra and Unlimited.
