Given such draconian sentences, even the possibility of Egyptian police officers using Grindr to locate homosexuals has raised fears among the app's mobile users.
According to American security company Synack, it was extremely easy to track down the locations of homosexuals using the app over the last months.
According to an unnamed source from the Egyptian LGBT community, police have used the app to get within a "few hundred metres" of their targets, according to the : "It is possible to tell a user's position within a few hundred metres, and many users include personal pictures, making them easily identifiable to cops.
"It baffles me how easily people are willing to share such personal information in a country like Egypt. "I would advise anyone to be careful when dating online." While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, authorities have continued to arrest members of the LGBT community under a "debauchery law".
Gay men are frequently arrested and typically charged with debauchery, immorality or blasphemy.
There are many more countries already being protected by this location change, and we will continue to add more to this list," the statement read. "On September 9, we were no longer receiving relative distances for users in Cairo, however, we did get notified that there were users nearby," Synack said in an e-mail to The Post, referring to Grindr's most recent security updates.Grindr also displays the distances to those users, but does not show their exact location.Under normal circumstances, users would need to interact directly before agreeing on a place to meet.Grindr allows men to interact with each other using location data.Hence, those interested in dating can view profiles of other users in their proximity.
