Signup Process

Signup with Hily is easy, especially if you're on social media already (and who isn't today?). You have three options to choose from:

  1. Sign up with your email address.
  2. Sync your Facebook account.
  3. Log in using your Snapchat account.

Btw, don’t worry about syncing either of your social media profiles. Hily doesn’t post anything or share any of your information. It’s just meant to make signup easier and faster. And since all info gets synced instantly, that’s exactly what it does.

Once you've logged in, you can add in more information about yourself, set up specific search criteria you want to use when browsing through profiles, and swipe away.

Matchmaking & Search Functions

Hily uses a sophisticated algorithm to pair members with appropriate matches. The smart science (or math, as Hily nerds like to call it) make for incredibly accurate matches. So, you spend more time dating people who are relevant and waste less time on total dating flops.

Hily is also big on local matchmaking, meaning it will generally only show you matches in your area. This is done specifically because proximity increases the likelihood that you'll actually set up, keep, and follow up on a date. It's easier to grab a quick bite with someone who lives a few blocks away than it is to coordinate schedules and arrange a date with someone several towns (or even states) over. Of course, you can expand your parameters if you prefer casting a wider net. This is just the Hily default mode.

Features & Communication Tools

Hily makes online dating a lot easier and more approachable than most apps out there today. With an easy to use interface and fun features, members can actually start to enjoy the entire dating process from match-finding to getting that cup of Joe. Here are a few Hily features that make this dating app worth the download:

Hily stories

Hily functions very much like one of your social media accounts, so you can post pictures, status updates, or update your Story. What’s unique about Hily is that you can use your camera to post videos and snapshots of yourself to your news feed for the rest of the community to see. The biggest selling point might be the short videos that you can post and view from other members.

Communications

Hily really pulls ahead of most other online dating apps with unlimited communications. Mutual likes can chat with one another unlimited. That means you can chat away without worrying about refilling credits or even signing up for a premium account. That’s a huge plus. To make a mutual like, both members must like one another’s profile.

Safety & Security

Hily uses industry-standard security features like SSL encryption and firewalls. But this dating app takes its user safety one step further.  Every profile that appears within the Hily network has been manually and individually verified by a Hily employee via social media, email, and photo verification. So, you can chat freely, knowing that the person you are talking to is really who they claim to be. It's a tremendous security measure that makes a world of difference to its members.

Pricing

One thing people love about Hily is the fact that it is free to download and use. That's a solid product right there. You can search through profiles, read news feeds, update your story, and even communicate with other members without limits. That's a huge distinction that sets Hily apart from other dating apps that heavily limit your communication options with their free accounts.

Of course, if you want to really boost your dating experience, you’ll want to sign up for Hily Elixir. That’s the premium membership plan that includes perks like:

  • An ad-free experience
  • Extended filters
  • Priority messages, your messages rise to the top of a liked profile’s inbox
  • Chat requests that let you send a message before you’ve been matched with another member you like
  • Incognito mode that lets you choose who can see your profile and who can’t

Hily’s pricing structure is slightly different than most. You can get a weekly subscription or pay for three months or one year at a time. Here are the prices:


One Week
Three Months
Twelve Months
Price
$14.99
$53.99
$119.99

Hily also offers a free trial, so you can test out the premium features before you pay. Just be sure to cancel your subscription more than 24 hours before the trial ends.
