Like most dating apps, deleting, uninstalling or removing the Hinge app won’t automatically delete your profile – you could still be visible to other users.
And if you upgraded to a Hinge Preferred membership, you’ll definitely want to read this because deleting the app won’t automatically cancel your subscription either.
This quick guide has step by step instructions on how to permanently delete Hinge and cancel your Preferred subscription!
How To Permanently Delete Your Hinge Profile
- Tap the “Settings” icon
- Tap “Account”
- Scroll all the way down to “Delete Account” and tap it
- Confirm the action by tapping the purple button
- Uninstall the Hinge app
If you signed up via Facebook, you’ll likely want to remove the app there as well.
Here is how to remove the Hinge app from Facebook:
- Delete your Hinge profile by following the above steps
- Open Facebook
- Go to “Settings & Privacy”
- Select “Settings”
- Select “Apps & Websites” from the “Security” section
- Tap “Edit” to access the “Logged in with Facebook” screen
- Select Hinge
- Tap “Remove”
- Confirm the action
How To Cancel Your Hinge Preferred Subscription
Because payment is handled via the App Store or Google Play Store, you’ll want to sign in there with the same Apple ID or Google Play account that you used to subscribe to Hinge. That's important, because if you don't cancel it properly you could still be charged when it auto renews.
To cancel your Hinge Preferred membership from your iOS device:
- Go to your iOS settings
- Select “iTunes & App Store”
- Tap Apple ID, then tap View Apple ID
- Log in if prompted
- Tap “Subscriptions”
- Tap “Manage”
- Select Hinge
- Toggle auto-renewal to “Off” or select “Unsubscribe”
If you don’t see the option to turn off auto-renewal, it’s possible you already did it when you upgraded. If that’s the case, it should display the end date for your Hinge Preferred subscription.
If for some reason you’re having trouble cancelling your Hinge subscription from your iPhone, you can try cancelling from your computer by following these steps:
- Open iTunes
- Select “iTunes Store”
- Select “View Account”
- Enter your credentials if prompted
- Navigate to the “Settings” section at the bottom of the Account Information page
- Select “Manage”
- Select “Hinge” from your list of subscriptions
- Turn off Auto-Renewal
To cancel your Hinge Preferred membership from your Android device:
- Open the Google Play Store app
- Search for Hinge
- Select Hinge from the search results
- Select “Cancel” or “Unsubscribe”
- Confirm the action
To cancel your Google Play Hinge subscription from a computer:
- Go to payments.google.com (while logged in to your Google account)
- Select “Subscriptions & Services” from the menu on the left
- Select your Hinge Preferred subscription
- Select “Cancel”
What Happens When You Delete Hinge
Deleting Hinge will deauthorize all of your Hinge account content, including your matches, messages, photos and profile information.
That means your profile will no longer be suggested to other Hinge users in Discover, and you will disappear from their “Matches” and “Likes You” sections.
The information will also no longer be accessible to you, meaning you’ll lose access to all your Hinge matches and messages as well.
But that doesn’t mean all your personal information is actually deleted when you delete your Hinge account.
To review a copy of the personal information Hinge has collected about you, you can submit a ticket via the Hinge Help Center. When filling out the requested information in the pop-up window, select either “Data Export” or “GDPR Request” from the Support Topic menu.
Note that you must make this data export request before you delete your Hinge profile.
