Can you access Hinge on desktop

No, there’s no Hinge desktop app available yet. 

However, the lack of a desktop app or a site you can access through a browser doesn’t mean that you can’t login to Hinge using your laptop (either Windows or Mac).

Why Hinge can’t be used in a computer

Unlike other dating sites, Hinge hasn’t yet implemented an option on their website for people to use it from other devices besides mobile.

Although this can seem like a big inconvenience for some users, Hinge has one huge reason to keep things that way: security.

See, when a dating app is available through a website it means that the site can be accessed from any kind of device or OS. 

With that, increases the chance of finding bots or breaches in privacy, because literally, anyone could join the app without much effort. 

So making the app for exclusive use on Android and iOS is like the first line of defense against bots, scammers, or other types of insecurities that most dating apps have.

Does this mean that Hinge is completely secure? No, it doesn’t.

But it’s certainly safer than some other options available.

However, we promised you a way to use Hinge on your computer and that’s exactly what we’re going to give you.

Using emulators to download Hinge

Emulators used to be the best way by default to have Hinge desktop.

It was easy, convenient, and they did the job just fine. 

The solution was so easy that sites like Quora or Reddit had long and detailed tutorials on how to do it.

However, this method stopped working somewhere around the middle of 2021.

Why emulators don’t work 

With the most recent updates of Hinge, the app stopped being available for download using an emulator.

Or what was worse, it was possible to download, but it didn’t work properly.

It could either deny the option to login or it couldn’t send the verification message due to “Communication problems on our end” at the moment of opening a new account.

And that is why emulators lost their place as a good option, replaced by good ol’ TeamViewer.

Hinge competitors available through a browser

Fortunately, Hinge isn’t the only dating app out there, and you have plenty of other options to try.

The most common dating apps that can also be accessed through a computer are, of course, Tinder and Bumble.

  • Tinder Web

  • Bumble Web

  • Other apps you can use on browser

Tinder Web

The king of dating apps couldn’t be unavailable through the web. Just go to Tinder.com and you would be able to do everything that the app allows.

From creating an account, to swipe, match, message, and buy subscriptions or other goodies.

In fact, if you plan on making a purchase on Tinder, we encourage you to do it through a computer instead of the app because you can save up to 35% as we revealed before.
