How To Delete Hinge The Right Way [Fool-Proof Instructions]

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 HingeX or Hinge+ (which used to be called Hinge Preferred), you’ll definitely want to read this because deleting the app won’t automatically cancel your subscription either.

Don’t worry - our team of dating experts is going to walk you through how to do it the right way. We’ve logged thousands upon thousands of hours on Hinge, optimizing profiles, matching and messaging on behalf of all the clients we represent. 

Our first-hand Hinge experience dates way back to when it first hit the dating scene in 2012, and our industry experience goes even further back to 2009.

You’re about to benefit from all that accumulated knowledge!

This quick guide has step by step instructions on how to delete Hinge and cancel your premium subscription.

Let's start with...

How To Permanently Delete Your Hinge Profile

  1. Tap the “Settings” icon
  2. Tap “Account”
  3. Scroll all the way down to “Delete Account” and tap it
  4. Confirm the action by tapping the purple button
  5. Uninstall the Hinge app

If you signed up via Facebook, you’ll likely want to remove the app there as well.

To remove the Hinge app from Facebook:

  1. Delete your Hinge profile by following the above steps
  2. Open Facebook
  3. Go to “Settings & Privacy”
  4. Select "Settings"
  5. Select "Apps & Websites" from the "Security" section
  6. Tap "Edit" to access the "Logged in with Facebook" screen
  7. Select Hinge
  8. Tap “Remove”
  9. 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 premium Hinge membership from your iOS device:

  1. Go to your iOS settings
  2. Select “iTunes & App Store”
  3. Tap Apple ID, then tap View Apple ID
  4. Log in if prompted
  5. Tap “Subscriptions”
  6. Tap “Manage”
  7. Select Hinge
  8. 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. Check and see what end date is displayed for your Hinge 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:

  1. Open iTunes
  2. Select “iTunes Store”
  3. Select “View Account”
  4. Enter your credentials if prompted
  5. Navigate to the “Settings” section at the bottom of the Account Information page
  6. Select “Manage”
  7. Select “Hinge” from your list of subscriptions
  8. Turn off Auto-Renewal

To cancel your premium Hinge membership from your Android device:

  1. Open the Google Play Store app
  2. Search for Hinge
  3. Select Hinge from the search results
  4. Select “Cancel” or “Unsubscribe”
  5. Confirm the action

To cancel your Google Play Hinge subscription from a computer:

  1. Go to payments.google.com (while logged in to your Google account)
  2. Select “Subscriptions & Services” from the menu on the left
  3. Click on your Hinge subscription
  4. 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.

Per Hinge’s privacy policy, your personal information is kept for “only as long as it’s needed for legitimate business purposes,” but they don’t specify how long that retention period is.

Hinge's data policy

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.
