Taps are an easy way to break the ice and show another user you’re interested without having to find the right words. To send a tap, just click the flame on someone’s profile. There are several types of taps on the main Grindr app, but Grindr Lite users can only send and receive the flame tap.
Taps you receive will show up in your inbox. You can always filter your inbox to view your messages and taps separately.
