    What a joke. It's filled with men that think they're women and women that think they're men.

    Turns out Her had screwed up and were charging me twice one as A Free account every month and also for the same profile a mthly £14 fee! I never autho... rised the premium version and now they have frozen the account so I have no way of tracking the transactions and they are refusing to refund me the money they have been taking in error. «»

    So this is absolutely an app to avoid imho. 99% of all contact I had was with catfishers or scammers. I met and interacted with ONE genuine person. ... The app has zero security features - for example, you cannot restrict your contact to other paying subscribers (which will eliminate all scammers and all but the most diehard catfishers) so you are left to employing your own techniques such as asking people to send you selfies of them doing unusual things (so they can't just rip a stock photo from the internet) just to verify they are real. They have no plans whatsoever to change anything - so I would STRONGLY caution against using this app and definitely 10000% do not pay for a subscription - you'd be better off walking into a male prison and throwing 20.00 in the trash «»

Her in Detail

  • Reading time 16 minutes
  • Lots of insider information for more success

Signing Up at Her

Her Signup
  • Free signup
  • Quick and easy registration
  • Register via Facebook, Instagram, or phone number
  • Post updates on HER's feed
  • Syncs photos from Facebook/Instagram

Registration is quick and easy, and it's free! You can sign up using your Facebook, Instagram, or mobile number. Your Facebook/Instagram photos and information are automatically synced with HER's profile. Don't worry, the app won't post anything on your feeds. The app asks for general questions such as dating preferences, relationship status, physical attributes, and lifestyles. But users can skip these questions and update them later on. 

The only problem with the app is that it crashes from time to time and immediately suspends accounts that it deems suspicious.

In other dating apps, accounts are verified via email or phone number but with HER, your social media accounts are enough to verify your authenticity as a potential member. HER has a live plaza feed where members can post, like, and comment. This feature makes the app more alive and engaging.

Making Contact on Her

Her Messaging
  • Communicate with Friends and Matches
  • Swiping left or right match function
  • Upgrade to see who "Liked" you
  • Sending friend requests is free
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone

Standard members can communicate with their matches, as well as send friend requests. Premium members, on the other hand, have unlimited messaging options and can see who liked their profiles.

Members can like profiles that they are interested in. When there's a mutual like, they become matches. The only setback with HER is that it doesn't allow its members to manually search for profiles.

Her Profile Quality

  • Upload text items on your profile
  • Upload up to six photos
