Hinge does not geolocate to your current location. You can set your location to a specific area regardless of where you may otherwise be at any given time. Your potential connections in Discover are curated based on your location, distance preferences and your proximity to their location and distance settings.
To change your location:
1. Tap Settings from your navigation bar
2. Tap Preferences
3. Tap My neighborhood (iOS) or My location (Android) and select your location! This is a map pulled in from Google, so you can pinch and zoom to hover over your neighborhood or tap the compass icon to auto-locate to where you are in that moment.
5. Tap the back arrow to save your location
