Hinge dating app rolled out in 2012 and with considerable hiccups on the way has not only sustained but with time has become more popular and user-friendly. The app gives in-depth and more intuitive profile building options — interactive cards and the option to leave a comment alongwith a like for other person’s particular picture or post — compared to its counterparts like Tinder, Bumble, and others.
While no company would want their users to delete their app, to everyone’s surprise, and contradictory to that idea, Hinge wants you to delete your account and the app, but after you’ve found your match. It works on creating meaningful matches to help the user get to the dating part quicker and get off the app.
So, if you have completed your quest to find the perfect person or have found a better alternative app for your dating needs, here is how you can delete Hinge account.
