Currently, according to Grindr statistics, there are more than three million people using the service, in about 200 countries
Appearing in March 2009 Grindr changed the landscape in the gay community, using user location data to find other people near them. This has made it easier for gay people to date each other.
Grindr keeps Kindr (the Grindr user community) safe, and connects confidently by blocking the accounts of those who engage in behaviors such as: racist attitudes, disparaging others, spreading HIV, conspiracy illicit sex, when anyone reports it. This gives participants more peace of mind when using the app.
