Do I have to provide this information?
Nope! It is completely optional.
Who can see this information?
Once you publish your health information on Grindr, anyone who views your profile can see it.
Why is Grindr collecting this information?
We believe in reducing stigma and facilitating conversations so users can make informed decisions around their health. To help with this, we provide an easy and upfront option to include your health information on Grindr. We do not allow users to search or filter based on your vaccination status, HIV status or last tested date. If you want, we can use your last tested date to send you periodic reminders to get retested. Note that we may sometimes use anonymized, aggregated data to learn about how the Grindr community is using the feature, and to make improvements.
Will this information be shared with advertisers?
Never! We do not sell this information or share it with advertising partners. See Ads On Grindr - Setting the Record Str8.
What is Grindr doing to ensure the protection of my health information?
- We make it optional to share your health information.
- We never share your health information with any advertisers or third-party services.
We have a Holistic Security Guide with tips on how to stay safe on and off the app.
