Regarding this, does hinge change your location?

Change your location on Hinge You can change your location as many times as you like. This is useful if you travel and want to date in your new city or if you go to college or just move town. Open Hinge and log in. Select the Settings icon in the bottom left of the screen.

Beside above, can you tell if someone is active on hinge? While Hinge doesn't exactly have an "active" feature, like Instagram and Facebook do (those little green dots by your name show users you're online!), the possible matches you see when you open the app have been recently active on the app, for the most part.

One may also ask, does hinge show your current location?

Not quite. With Hinge, it's not your current location that counts, but rather your set home neighborhood, which you select on a world map. It can also zero in on your current location to select that one as home.

Does hinge notify screenshots?

Currently, Hinge does not send screenshot notifications, and someone can't see if you screenshot their profile. Snapchat and even parts of Instagram, have us all screenshot hesitant these days, but for those of you looking for love on Hinge - you're safe. Hinge will not tell someone if you screenshot their profile.
