Mashable has reported that Grindr and other dating apps are working on new initiatives to help users in the domain of sexual health.
One feature may help users send a notification to previous partners if they have tested positive for a disease.
Jack Harrison-Quintana, Director of Grindr for Equality, said: “Grindr works very closely with Building Healthy Online Communities on several initiatives including STD related notifications.”
He adds: “We are exploring several additional sexual health-related features for our application.
“However, at this time, we are not disclosing any further details around this project.”
The organisation Building Healthy Online Communities (BHOC) has been at the forefront of the move to better integrate dating apps with public health services.
It already collaborates with apps including Grindr, Adam4Adam, Daddyhunt, as well as partners like The AIDS Foundation.
Grindr are one of the companies speaking at GDI Los Angeles next week.
