Yesterday it was the MásMóvil group and today it's Grindr, the most popular gay social network of the moment. Since early in the morning, the application has stopped working in much of the world. According to the heat map on the Downdetector.es website, the fall seems to have spread across the globe, with Europe as the central point. And it is that as indicated by several users on Twitter and Instagram, Grindr does not work as it should: it does not connect, it does not allow you to log in or it does not allow you to send messages to other users . For the moment, the company has not commented on the matter, so the origin of the problem is unknown.

Grindr does not load: the application does not work correctly in Spain
So is. The social network has stopped working for just a few hours. At the time of this writing, reports number in the hundreds, so it does not appear to be an isolated problem. At first, problems began to arise in some European countries, such as Spain, Germany or France.

Regarding the problems of the application, the majority of users say they have problems accessing the social network. The most common problem has to do with the loading of content within the application: messages, profiles, photos, people close to our geographical position ... Some users claim to be unable to log into Grindr, while many others say they cannot open the application on Android and iOS.
To all this we must add that the company has not issued any official statement at the moment . Everything indicates that it is a specific crash of Grindr's servers in Europe, although a possible computer attack is not ruled out. In any case, we will update the article with all the information in this regard as soon as there is an official statement from Grindr - if any -. Most likely, the service will be restored in the next few hours, although at the moment we cannot take anything for granted.
