Behold! you can now pretend to be in 1997 and check your hook up messages on your computer.

Those of us who were around in the glory days of Gaydar – that was the website which basically kickstarted the online gay hook up revolution, way before Grindr, you would log on to the service, on your computer and check your profile, messages and chat online.

Well, now you can do that with Grindr. Instead of using your phone and zapping up all that valuable battery power, you can log onto Grindr’s chat website using your computer – all you need to do is log on to web.grindr.com/mail.

How do you log into Grindr’s Website?

You’ll need to open the app on your phone and open up Grindr on your desktop computer. On your phone, go to settings (by clicking on your profile and clicking on to the settings options) You’ll see an option saying, “Log in to Grindr web”.

You’ll then have to scan the QR code, with your phone, shown on your desktop screen and voila, Grindr will link your phone and your computer.

Once linked, you’ll be able to see all your previous messages, respond to them, check profiles and basically use Grindr as you normally would.

It will require access to your location in order to use the GPS function.

In-office view, no one will be able to tell that you’re using Grindr to check for messages as it looks just like a normal webmail service.

There’s also a work/ office view – which means that no one can see that you’re actually on Grindr.
