How to delete a Grindr account permanently?

Grindr is a popular dating app. But if you’re not interested in using Grindr anymore, you might be considering to close your account. If that case: Don’t look further, because I’m about to explain how to delete your Grindr account permanently.

I’ll show you below how I managed to remove my profile using the iPhone app (but steps remain the same for the Android app):

 1  Open the app and tap on the mask in the menu

 2  Tap on the gear icon next to your picture

 3  Now choose the gear icon in the upper right corner

 4  Scroll down till you see the Delete profile button

 5  Tell them why you want to remove your account

 6  Indicate what they can improve and choose Next

 7  Type the word DELETE

 8  Confirm that you are sure that you want all your data to be removed

 ✅  Your account has been closed

  1. Dear Accountdeleters,

    I did as you told in your description but my Account appeared. On my device of course it was gone, but I controlled it on the device of my boyfriends cellphone and all messages and pictures were still visible, plus my Profilepic was still shown.
    I went to the settings in the left corner, clicked privacy, and delete profile as you said and deleted my app. I am no Pro-User, so it should have worked as you said. Please help me to find an solution.

In case it still hasn’t been removed, I would advise you to try to contact their support team (
