Profile Guidelines

Grindr Profile Guidelines

Basically, we don't allow pornography, but since "you know it when you see it" is a little vague, here's some specifics:

  • You can't be naked.
  • Seriously, you can't be naked.
  • We shouldn't be able to make out your genitals through your clothing, i.e. no contour or “tenting.”
  • If you're only in your undies, you gotta show your face. Just trying to keep it clean, folks.
  • Sex acts or toys, real or mimicked (groping, masturbation, etc.) are a no-go.
  • There's no advertising. If you have something to sell, please contact our ad department.
  • Don't be overtly suggestive, racist, bigoted, or anything else that might offend our community.
  • Please don't promote unsafe sex.
  • No photos or mentioning of firearms, weapons, drugs or drug paraphernalia. That kind of thing just causes trouble.
  • Copyrighted pictures or illustrations are, well ... copyrighted, so legally we can't let them through.
  • No photos of anyone under the age of 18. Period.
  • Don't impersonate anyone, not even celebrities.
  • Other than Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram in the Social Link field, for everyone's safety, please don't include any other web links.


Notice: Any violation of the above guidelines could result in a permanent ban from Grindr. We reserve the right to remove/crop any photo and/or text we perceive to be outside these guidelines.
