Grindr sends every user in Egypt warning about police tricking and arresting queer men

Grindr sends every user in Egypt warning about police tricking and arresting queer men


Mar 23rd 2023

Written by Joe Ali


LGBTQ+ dating app Grindr has urged all users in Egypt to be vigilant following reports that police are using the app to conduct sting operations and arrest queer men.


Increasing numbers of LGBTQ+ are people being arrested, beaten and abused by police officers using dating apps and digital platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram.


In response, Grindr has released a country-wide announcement, condemning the police action and warning LGBTQ+ users to tread carefully when using the app to meet others.


Police are also reportedly hacking into legitimate user profiles on the app to make arrests.


PinkNews has been told that more than 150 people have been arrested with Egyptian police using entrapment schemes.
