Hinge is a mobile dating app that is built on technology run by an operating system. Like other mobile dating apps, crashes, and technical errors are common. To avoid crashing and being logged out, follow these simple principles.

To stop getting logged out of Hinge, make sure your mobile app is updated, and your phone has the most current operating system version. Past versions may not be compatible and will cause the app to crash.

In this article, we will show you how to prevent Hinge from crashing and getting logged out.

Stop Hinge From Crashing

The first thing you need to look for is to see if the Hinge app is down. Before going into a panic or getting frustrated with your phone, check if Hinge is down. We like looking at this website here to see if the Hinge servers are currently active or down.

If the Hinge servers are down, it will continuously crash, no matter what you do. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about this. It would help if you waited patiently until the Hinge servers were back online.

This is one of the most frustrating reasons Hinge is crashing it’s completely out of your control.

We recommend you get your Hinge match’s information as soon as possible; that way, if you need to talk to them, you won’t be at the mercy of Hinge.

Update Your App Or Operating System

Do you have an old phone? The reason Hinge may be crashing and causing you to log out is because of your phone.

First, you want to make sure your Hinge app is up to date. Hinge is consistently updating the app to enhance and increase the user experience. Apps that don’t change and innovate often die off.

In the case of Hinge, there are often several updates almost bi-weekly. If you happen to miss one of these updates, there’s a good chance your phone will not be compatible with the update and will crash. We recommend putting on automatic updates for the Hinge dating app so you don’t miss anything.

Second, make sure you’ve updated your OS (operating system). While Hinge is updating their app for new operating systems, yours must be up to date.

As phones get more powerful, mobile apps must keep up with the processing power. Hinge is built to appease its users with new phones. They do not build apps for people with older phones.

This is why if your OS is old, but the mobile app you just downloaded is new, there’s a good chance the app will crash. It’s trying to run a newer app on an older OS.

For this reason, we recommend you check both the operating system and the app itself to make sure they’re both updated.

Uninstall And Reinstall Hinge

If you realize it’s not the operating system or the updates, there’s a good chance that it could be the app itself. We recommend deleting the app from your phone (uninstalling) and then downloading the app again.

Hinge - Dating & Relationships

It’s common for apps installed onto your phone that may be defective or not loaded properly. If they don’t load properly on your phone due to a technical error, you may have issues earlier or later.

Uninstalling the Hinge dating app from your phone and go to the app store to reinstall it. Doing this simple 2-minute task can help fix any technical errors you may have. Once you’ve reinstalled the app, log back into your account to continue your Hinge experience.

Close All Of Your Apps

Both Android and iPhone users can open multiple mobile apps at once. To store the memory, your phone will access the RAM. If you have too many large file apps open, the phone will naturally slow down.

To preserve storage and keep operating, there’s a good chance that Hinge may have a technical glitch trying to load features.

If there are too many other mobile apps open, Hinge can sometimes encounter a technical glitch. This will cause the app not to access the RAM and glitch out. This will cause the app to close over and over again completely.

Restart Your Phone

If you just closed all of your apps, we recommend restarting your phone. This will give your phone a fresh start at both starting applications and the RAM.

It’s also common that users who have phones may not restart their phones for weeks and even months.

Having a fresh restart is both healthy and good for your phone, as it’s able to reestablish its memory and run applications without any competition.

Exit Out Of The App & Reopen It

Like restarting your phone, you’ll want to close out all of the mobile apps you have running and restart the Hinge app.

Closing all of the other apps will allow Hinge to get a fresh start at the opening and store all of its data on your phone without any competition. Close all of the apps, then fire up the Hinge app.

❤️ Pro Tip: If you’re sick of finding people who are just looking for one-night stands, we recommend trying eHarmony.

It’s one of the highest-rated online dating apps in the world. eHarmony users are actually actively looking for relationships. Give it a try here for free and see if you can tell the difference.


If your Hinge mobile dating app keeps crashing and logging you out, it’s important to make sure your app is up to date. Out-of-date apps and operating systems are the main causes causing an app to crash.

When the app continues to crash, it’s common to log you out of your profile, forcing you to log back in.

Restarting your phone and making sure that all apps are closed will help reset the memory on the phone. It’s important to have a fresh start every once in a while by restarting your phone and letting it boot up again.

Last, if you’ve done all of the available steps, there may be an issue with your phone that you’ll need to contact the app or Google Store about. Some issues can’t be fixed if the operating system has been compromised or is affected.
