happn Launches New “Invisible Mode” Feature


Today, happn has announced a new in-app feature that will give users the freedom to make their profiles invisible during certain points in the day.

Users will be able to activate “invisible mode” which will allow them to hide their profile from other singles. This could be during situations where they may not want to make any new matches.

The “invisible mode” has been created and developed due to the app’s customer feedback, with the most common scenario being that it needed to be used in the workplace.

The feature can be activated for 8 hours or scheduled for certain times of the day or week.

The “invisible mode” will be available in a new update which will also introduce a new feature allowing users to choose what information they do or do not want to display on their profile.

This will include their age, last active date and approximate distance from potential connections.

Claire Certain, Head of Trends at happn, said: “Due to the nature of our app we wanted to offer this option to people who were at odds with always having their profile visible to other users. After discussing with our users, we wanted to enhance and ease the experience of those who prefer to be more discreet about their dating preferences and availability, especially in the workplace. We’re happy to help them simply decide whether or not they are in the mood for love or a new encounter.”

The feature is available now through happn’s latest update on the App Store, Play Store and Windows Store.
