Poor updates

I give a single star for this newly updated App just because you updated from grid view to lists view..it is taking more longer time to scroll down one by one profile hence since then updated, i hardly get a crush where as the previous version was enough view space to see 4 profiles at same time thus it took lesser time to interact with profiles rather then this new version..kindly look into it if possible improve the version

Applies to latest update on iOS

This is a perfect example of “don’t try to fix something that’s not broken in the first place”. I’m a paid member and been using happn for quite a while now. My experience here has been mixed till now. A couple of years ago the “crossings” were a lot more and consistent, but it seems to be dwindling now. I’m not sure if it’s a bug or something but I only cross paths nearby my home but if I am travelling, it’ll not show any crossings. I highly doubt there are no users other than the ones close to my home. My location settings are set to “always on”, yet no results. Moreover, post covid it seems 99% of the females have found a new way to scam/extort in the name of “dating” and “relationships” and despite reporting such profiles, hardly anything specific is done by guys at happn. The least that can be done is to make verifying the pics mandatory. Finally, I’m not sure if it’s a n iOS thing or in general but the app used to hang and crash sometimes but since the latest update it has only become worse. Will consider giving a better rating if the issues are resolved.

Literally ruined my mental peace

The app is no doubt filled with scammers and I have no idea how the developers can’t implement further strict verification systems in order to prevent scammers from joining the app and spoofing their locations from one state to the other…. My experience with this app has been the worst 95% matches being scammers and one being so good at it that she ended up convincing me to call her on WhatsApp and immediately video calling me and even though I ended the call in less than 5 seconds the damage to my reputation has been done the scammer plays a video of a girl stripping and the moment I saw that I ended the call for a few reasons first ethically I don’t like getting intimate with anyone second I don’t treat women as objects and third I clearly understood the motive but the scammer needed that few seconds to record a video with false allegations I have faced plenty of scammers like this on the app and will be taking matters up with IT Cell…. As a word of suggestion to the developers implement stricter security walls the amount of mental trauma this has given is literally unbearable
