What happens when you uninstall Grindr?


When you delete the app, but not the profile, the profile will not be ok the grid anymore. The profile will however show up still in the inboxes of those you messaged and their contents. Grindr has shown up in my experience on the grid after I deleted the app and not my profile.

WHY YOU’LL NEVER FIND LOVE | You HAVE TO Delete Grindr In 2021

Why I’m Getting off Grindr

Write an article about how Grindr is a geosocial networking application that aids in the meeting of gay, bi, and queer guys. It works by showing all of the men in your geographical area on a map. While it’s great for meeting new people, it also has some negative consequences for users when they decide to uninstall it-including personal data being leaked with no way to fix it.

GRINDR FACTS: The popular gay hookup app Grindr is facing an emergency filing after a security breach led to the leaking of users’ personal information. Grindr was hacked earlier this month due to what they are calling “a recently discovered vulnerability in their code.” Those who have tried to delete the app are finding they are unable to reverse the deletion, which many say could mean that their information still remains on company servers. Grindr released a statement saying that it is now taking steps “to better understand the incident.” On Monday April 3rd, 2017 they came forward with more information about the hack, stating that location data has been exposed for all of its over 3 million users-meaning anyone can access it.

They have been unable to confirm the number of users affected, but they have confirmed that this is a major security risk. They advised all users to “be cautious” and try not to use the app on a public Wi-Fi network where a cyber criminal might be able to intercept data being transmitted over that connection. The American Civil Liberties Union’s Christopher Sogohian has said that he believes Grindr needs to do more, possibly even release an Android update with better protection for its information. He says they should also be releasing more details about how the hack was executed. Grindr released a statement saying that it will continue its investigation into what happened and would update their customers as appropriate.

Will anybody be able to see who is looking for them even if they delete their profile from the app?

Grindr will stop showing that person as “online” and will not show them any more. When you exit out of Grindr and remove the app, anyone who searches for your user name will not be able to find you on Grindr or on external third-party sites such as AppTracker or Webcrawler.
>The app only keeps the contacts it will display for 48 hours after they’ve been found, so if nobody looks at these profiles within this time frame, they’ll disappear from the “Lonely?” listings.
>People can still see how many times I’ve had conversations with others which is about 10 people or less without having access to my profile first. They won’t know my location though.
Grindr allows you to delete your profile, photos, and chats that have not been favorited or sent/received. Go to “Settings” at the bottom of the main menu. Scroll all the way down until you find “Clear Cache.” Click on “Clear Cache” to erase your chat history. To clear your list of people who are online, go back to settings and click on “Delete Profile.”.

Can somebody find me if I deleted my account from the app?

If somebody finds your profile via the app, they will still be able to find you after your account was deleted. If somebody finds your profile outside of the Grindr app (i.e. Bing, Google) then they would no longer be able to find you if you delete your account from the app (this is because Grindr does not show up on their search).
