All users have access to a number of privacy-enhancing features through the “Display Preferences” menu found in the app “Settings”, including:
- Show Me in Explore Searches - you can choose not to be found via “Explore” searches, which allow people who aren’t nearby to browse your area. In some countries where being LGBTQ may put people in particular danger, profiles are already hidden from searches. More information on this feature is available here.
- Show Distance - you can choose to hide your distance in your profile and cascade. This may help if you live in a dangerous environment and do not want any unwanted people knowing where you are. In some countries where being LGBTQ may put people in particular danger, the distance feature is already disabled for everyone. Please note that your profile will be visible to other people in the grid, sorted by your distance from them, and therefore your approximate distance may be inferred. More information on this feature is available here.
These features can be found in the “Display Preferences” section of the “Settings” menu.
