Grindr is a device app for homosexual and bi-sexual individuals to find others near them and is primarily used as a method for hooking up with others.  Manly for men, Grindr can also be used to chat and find dates.

In addition to the obvious dangers of the app for children, Grindr has recently been cited by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (2015) as one of several ‘apps that promote illicit drug use’ via the actions of some drug-using members who supply drugs and/or share drug experiences using the app.
