One of the often-asked questions about Hinge is: Does Hinge automatically update your location? Whether you're a newcomer to Hinge or a seasoned user, understanding how its location settings function is crucial.

It’s particularly important when you’re in a new place, different from where you created your account, to know whether you need to manually change your location or if Hinge will update it automatically for you.

In this guide, we'll explore how Hinge handles location updates, including when it does so automatically and when you might need to intervene manually. But, before that, make sure you know how to send pictures on Hinge.

Does Hinge Automatically Update Your Location?

Hinge does automatically update your location provided you have granted the app permission to access it. However, there are exceptions where the dating app doesn’t auto-update your location.

The exception occurs when you manually change your location in the app. In that case, Hinge will not update your location, regardless of whether you force close the app or restart your device.

When you’ve manually adjusted your location on Hinge and wish for the app to resume automatic updates, you must re-enable auto-updates. The steps to do this will be covered in the following section.

How to Enable Automatic Location Update on Hinge

To enable automatic location updates on Hinge, go to your profile and click the filter icon at the top right. Then, select “My Neighborhood” and tap the GPS icon at the bottom right. This action will update your location to your current physical whereabouts.

If you want to manually set your location on Hinge, simply move the map and drop the location pin at your desired location. This method is helpful when you want to match with people in a specific country or province.
