How to Fix Grindr Messages Not Sending

Here’s all of the best solutions for fixing Grindr when it won’t send a message.

1. Check if Grindr is down. It’s possible that the entire Grindr service, or aspects relating to Grindr, could be offline or experiencing errors.

2. Check your phone’s Wi-Fi or cellular connection. The quickest way to do this is to open another app that needs an internet connection. If Wi-Fi is slow or down, switch to cellular. If cellular is slow or down, switch to Wi-Fi.

The process of switching between Wi-Fi and Cellular connection depends on your platform: Android, or iPhone.

3. Toggle Airplane Mode on and off. This only takes a few seconds and is an easy way to reset your phone’s Wi-Fi and cellular connections. (AndroidiPhone)

4. Turn off your VPN. VPNs can sometimes interfere with some apps’ internet connectivity.  To test if this is the case, disable your VPN on Android device or disable your VPN on iPhone and check if this resolves the issue.

5. Quit and re-open Grindr. Completely close the Grindr app, don’t just minimize it. The process for fully closing an app depends on the platform you are using. (AndroidiPhone)

6. Restart your device. A quick restart can fix a number of app and system issues. Note that the process for restarting is different depending on the device you’re using.  So take a moment to reboot your Android or reboot your iOS device to see if it resolves problems with Grindr app not working.

7. Update the Grindr app. Check for an app update on your Android device or iPhone to make sure you have the latest version. Check for and install any Grindr app updates on your Android device or app updates on your iPhone

8. Clear the Grindr app cache on your Android device or clear the cache on an iPhone. While caching improves app performance by saving app information in local memory, it can also lead to issues with your device not receiving the latest information from Grindr. Clearing cached data will force your app to retrieve the latest information from Grindr.

9. Disable Low Data Mode. Low Data Mode can prevent Grindr from connecting to Grindr’s servers.

10. Activate Background App Refresh. On iPhone, select Settings > Grindr and enable Background App Refresh.

11. Reinstall Grindr. Uninstall the Grindr app on your iPhone or Android device and then reinstall it. This process can sometimes get rid of any message sent error messages or bugs.

12. Update your operating system. Downloading and installing the latest iOS or Android operating system can fix a variety of system and app issues. (Android, iPhone)

13. Reset network settings. Resetting your device’s network settings can fix a variety of internet connection problems on multiple apps. (Android, iPhone)

14. Contact Grindr Support. It could be an issue with your account, and Grindr customer support should be able to help you determine if that’s the case.
