About this app

happn - the dating app that lets you find people that destiny has put on your path.

With more than 140 million users across the globe, happn is the best way to meet people nearby, who are already in your area. We’re the only real-life dating app. You only see people you’ve crossed paths with in real life or that you have common interests with, so you know you’re already in each other’s lives and that's where the magic can happen. Have you ever wondered if the person you smiled at over at that cool cafe was interested in you? With happn, you’ll never have to wonder again!

Find your Crush in your favourite spots

The advantage of happn lies in its ability to foster meaningful connections with those who share your daily routine. By allowing to meet based on geographic proximity and the places you usually go to, happn encourages to connect in familiar environments, thus promoting relaxed and authentic dates. No more stress of the first dates and encounters! There’s no better icebreaker than talking about your favorite spots: bars, clubs, restaurants, parks etc.

True and safe dating experiences

* Your exact location is never revealed
* You keep control of what is displayed on your online profile
* You don’t have to worry about rejection: the person will never know you like them unless they Like you back and Crush
* You decide who you talk with: only after a crush, can you send/receive a message
* You can tell when you’re ready to meet for a date through our special feature in the chat to avoid the pressure of asking
* You can always change your mind at any time: happn is consent-driven
* No pressure: friendship, chat or a real love story - you decide

How does it work

It’s simple. When you cross paths with another happn user, their profile will appear on your app. Did someone catch your eye? Like them secretly. We promise that the person will never know unless they Like you back and it’s a Crush! You can then start to chat, see if there’s a spark, and maybe arrange to meet up.

Crush with confidence and safety

- The happn dating app is based on the principle of reciprocity: you will never have a chat with someone you’re not interested in.
- Profile certification: participate in creating a safe and trusted environment by verifying your profile and encouraging others to do the same.
- At happn, confidentiality is our priority: your location is never visible to other members, only the places you crossed paths with them are shown and you can deactivate if you don’t feel comfortable with it.

Meet when you’re ready

Not sure when you should ask your Crush on a date? Afraid they might say no? Or are you sick of the pressure when someone asks you out too soon? No more stress. Now you can tell us when you’re ready to meet, directly in your chat with your Crush. We’ll let you know when they’re ready too.

Happn has fewer settings than similar apps and notably lacks a filter for languages spoken, so you have no idea if you can communicate with a match, particularly if you don't speak the local language in your area. A distance setting is also missing. It's not good enough simply to look for local matches if someone might be willing to relocate within a country for the right match. E-mail verification fails with a server error, and support says it cannot be verified later. Not worth paying for.

This app seems to have all kinds of problems. I'll get a notification of a match, and I'll click on it, then try to click on the profile of my match and I just get a spinning loading wheel that never loads. The only thing that seems to work is closing the app and reopening it. Other times, when looking at my matches, I will click yes or no on someone. I briefly see a flash of my next match before it disappears and takes 10 seconds to load, sometimes it will happen 3 times before finally loading

Cannot set distance or location search parameters. You are shown profiles with a supposed distance of 30+ miles away. Your response is invalid, due to the fact that no distance search parameters can be set by users as all. The issue is not merely running out of local profiles that are closer to users, but the fact that no search parameters can be set by a user on your app. Your response does not address the key issue at heart. Please consider allowing users to set their own search parameters.

Hello Ryan, Happn operates using the GPS function on your mobile device, displaying individuals you've crossed paths with. It's actually not feasible to manually change your location within the app. However, we appreciate your feedback and will consider your suggestion for future improvements. Thank you!
