What is the “Use my phone number” button for?

a) The “Use my phone number” button allows happners to use their mobile phone numbers instead of Facebook in order to sign in to happn.


You must specify your phone number for us to send you a code. You will then be required to send the code for us to check that you are the owner of this phone line.


After that, you will have to specify your real name (not a pseudonym) as well as your date of birth (so we can check you are not a minor) and your gender preferences. You will also be asked to enter your email address as an extra way to identify you but you will not have to give it to us. Moreover, it is compulsory that you add a picture so you can access your Timeline.


b) The “Use my phone number” button also allows happners to log in to their account using their phone number instead of Facebook. If you wish to log in to your account this way, your phone number will be required, such as when you sign un, for us to send you a code.

You will then have to provide us with this code so we can check you are the owner of this telephone line.

Depending on the way you created your account, we may ask you to give us again certain information, for us to find your account. For example, if you have created your account through Facebook, we will ask you to log in through Facebook for the last time. We promise it will be the last time you have to connect this way!

Then, you will be able to use your phone number to log in whenever you want, and even delete your Facebook account if you wish to do so.


Please note that you must indicate the same identity information as the one you entered when you signed up: date of birth, name, email or Facebook; if you don’t, we will not be able to find your account and we will have to create a new one.
Then you will be able to log in to your account with your phone number.
Please keep in mind that your phone number will only be used to check your identity. We will never use it to send you publicity.
