My favorite places have disappeared from my profile page. How do I get them back?
If your locations have been removed, most of these will be because you were either invited to or added to a group and therefore had your information shared with other users. If you find that a location has not been replaced when scrolling through this list, then it is possible that the location may have been deleted at some point in time by another user e.g someone else who was using the device or deleting spam locations which they no longer wanted on their profile page..
You can remove unwanted items from your profile page by doing one of the following: From your desktop computer: Tap Edit next to the item you want to remove from your profile page (this option is only available if viewing the website on a desktop computer) From your mobile device: Tap and hold an item until the delete icon appears
How do I reconnect with someone that does not show up in Grindr?

If they were added through a Group, try sending them a message directly (tap their image, click ‘Message’ located at the bottom of the screen). This may work if they have blocked messages from profiles outside of the group.
If they were added through a Place, make sure you are on the location screen and then try sending them a message directly by tapping their image and clicking ‘Message’ located at the bottom of the screen.

Why did Grindr stop using Google Maps?
Since launch, we have been working on a custom map experience that will help us best serve the needs of our users when looking for local places on Grindr. The new map was built with the user in mind: it allows them to move with ease between screens and offers more opportunities to learn about popular hangouts around them they might not otherwise have known about. We’re most excited for users to find that the map now has a waypoint feature (similar to Google Maps), showing all of their favorite places on one screen so they can quickly and easily navigate between them. Users will now be able to add multiple photos, access details about a place (hours, occupancy info, website link etc…) and share it with their network—all in one place whether at home or on the go. [Blog post announcing this change]
Why do I see a “Pending” label over some guys’ images?
Grindr uses this as a display option for guys when they are likely not using Grindr at that moment. A pending image may also appear if there is an issue with the guy’s profile, his age is unconfirmed or he has not set a main image. If you would like to block pending profiles from showing up in your app, please email [email protected]
What can I do when my location history gets erased?
This can occur for several reasons including recently restarting your device, clearing application data on an Android phone or if Grindr Xtra is unable to load completely when launched. For more information about how to fix this issue and other questions around user privacy , check out our Privacy Help Center.
Why did my subscription get canceled?
Your subscription may have been canceled if you didn’t use Grindr Xtra for a while or because your payment information changed. You can easily reactivate it on the web by logging in to your account at grindr.com and clicking “Restore Subscription”. If you need more help, please submit a ticket to our Support Center . [on the Grindr website]
Why isn’t my subscription showing?
If there is an issue with your billing that has not yet been resolved, no subscription will appear next to your username on the app. If this is not related to billing, check out our article about how long it takes for subscriptions to appear and other common questions around subscriptions here.
