Hinge provides users with 8 free likes before they are presented with a purchase screen for their premium subscription. The user can get one of their premium subscriptions to enjoy unlimited likes. On Hinge, the likes reset at a fixed time of 4 AM every day.
If you don’t want to purchase a premium subscription, you’ll have to wait till 4 AM the next day before you get all your 8 likes. Hinge has the lowest swipe limit among the three dating apps with the other two being Tinder and Bumble. This is a con of this app but Hinge does notify users when their profile is liked by someone and this feature is not present on Tinder and Bumble.
Hinge has higher quality matches than the two platforms. Since Hinge offers so few likes one thing is guaranteed that people using Hinge are genuinely looking to find a partner and they’re not shy of spending money to find one. People on Hinge aren’t freebie hunters but a significant amount of users on Tinder and Bumble want everything for free and never pay.
