All you have to do to activate your free Hinge membership is to complete your profile!
Hinge Membership allows you to connect with and talk to the same curated community of relationship-seekers as Preferred Membership. As a Hinge Member you can filter for gender, location, age, distance, height, ethnicity, and religion. You will be able to send out 10 Likes per day to potential connections in Discover.
You can add more characteristics and traits about yourself to your profile by tapping Settings, then tapping the pencil icon.
New criteria include whether you have children, family plans, politics, and drinking, smoking, marijuana, and drug use. These criteria are available for filtering your Discover queue with a paid membership.
By tapping Settings > Account, you'll see your Membership status and information. You can tap through to become a Preferred Member or manage your subscription status. Please note that purchases are set to auto-renew as your cycle comes to an end. As a Hinge Member, you can upgrade to Preferred Membership with advanced preference filters anytime.
