Nowadays, thanks to social media, we are more connected than ever, and the way we relate to others has been changing. In this context appear apps like Happn, a dating platform that promises to turn casual encounters with people into meaningful connections.

Find that person you crossed paths using Happn

Happn is a dating app that uses real-time location to show you the people you've crossed paths with in real life. So, you can be in a bar or walking in the park, and Happn shows you who were there at the same time as you. 

The app uses the geolocation of your smartphone (only to show the crossings within the platform, the rest of the time your location will remain invisible), to track your location and register Happn users who crossed your path. When you cross with someone, their profile appears on your timeline, showing the time and place of the crossing. From then on, you can view their profile and start chatting if you wish.

Additionally, you don't need to be constantly looking at your smartphone to see who is near you in real time, as the app keeps a history of the people you've crossed paths with, and you can access it at any time.

Outstanding features of Happn

  • Like: this is a “secret” function, as if you give a like to someone, they will not know it is yours unless they give you a Like too. Then at that moment, you both can find out that you liked each other.
  • Meeting: in order to meet someone on Happn, you need to send a greeting. If they return it, then you can start a conversation in the chat. If you reject someone who has greeted you, you will not appear in their history or on their map, no matter if you meet again.
  • Hobbies: if you want to connect with profiles that interest you, with people similar to your tastes, you can use the Teasers and Hobbies functions. By completing your profile, you will be able to connect with people who share your interests and passions.
  • SuperCrush: within Happn there is the possibility to send a SuperCrush, so that you can stand out from the list of the person and send messages even before there is a mutual Crush.

Features and functionalities of the Premium version of Happn

While you can enjoy most of the options offered by the app in its free version, if you want to go further, you can choose the premium subscription. Among the extra options it offers, you will have access to the list of people who have liked you and have more SuperCrushes available so you can send messages whenever you want and notify people you like.

How to Download the App and Register on Happn

You can download the app from the Google Play Store if you have Android, or from the App Store for iOS. When you search for Happn and download it, you can sign up either through your Facebook account, your phone number or your email address. You proceed to complete the registration process by providing the necessary information, and you can start browsing profiles within Happn.

Happn vs. other dating apps

When it comes to deciding which dating app to use among all the alternatives that are available, there are several things to keep in mind. Happn stands out among the others as it offers the possibility to know who you have crossed paths with and to discover people within your close environment.

Meanwhile, other apps rely on algorithms and general preferences, which can become very unexciting when you find a person and realize that they don't even live in your country, for example. So, if what you want is to find someone who is relatively close to you or is in a place where you frequent quite a lot, Happn is ideal for this.

Pros:

  • Your exact location is never revealed.
  • Happn is based on real-life encounters.
  • It is available for both Android and iOS.

Cons:

  • You need to have your smartphone's location activated at all times.
  • The app running in the background can consume a lot of battery power.
  • The effectiveness of the app may vary depending on the density of users in the area.
