You’re happily ready to join Hinge or rejoin it.
As if the shadowban on Hinge wasn’t enough… The excitement you feel within quickly starts fading away as you wait for the verification code.
You still haven’t received the verification code from Hinge. Now it’s pure impatience and frustration!
Well, say bye to the impatience and frustration you’re feeling, because I’ve got you on this one!
Let’s start from the basics, why is your Hinge verification not working?
1. Poor internet connection.
If your internet connection isn’t working properly at the moment you’re trying to create or log into your Hinge account, then it’s very likely that you won’t receive the SMS code verification on Hinge.
That’s because your phone number won’t even be present on Hinge’s system or form, because of the poor internet connection.
Hence, Hinge won’t detect that there’s an account requiring code verification in the first place. This could be why Hinge is not sending you a code at all.
But, since you’re here, I’m assuming you might have more significant issues. Let’s keep exploring!
2. A no-brainer: you might’ve put in the wrong phone number.
Another reason why you may not be receiving a verification code from Hinge is the probability of putting in the wrong phone number.
You may have missed a “0” or a “4”, or you may have put the wrong prefix.
Double-check your phone number. If it’s incorrect, then that’s the root of the problem.
Hinge will try to send the code to the exact phone number you typed in. If it’s not your exact phone number, you won’t receive the code.
3. You typed the code in after it expired.
Whether it states it or not, in most code-verification procedures, the code expires within a specific time.
If you received the message too late, or if you typed the code in too late, then you’re probably trying to verify an expired code.
This is why you’ll experience issues, and the Hinge verification will fail mid-process. The code expired, and you need to try again.
4. You’re using a burner number such as Google Voice.
Hinge actually warns us about this. It won’t send a verification code on a number that’s already used or even banned on Hinge.
“But this is a brand new phone number!” you might argue.
Is it from Google Voice?
Such free services for burner numbers can seem like they’re effective. And they are, but not for this purpose.
Hinge warns us that if we use Google Voice or similar services that provide us with secondary phone numbers, we’re going to have trouble with verification!
5. Your Hinge app isn’t updated.
If the Hinge app on your phone isn’t updated, then you’re very likely to experience login and code verification errors.
If you don’t have the latest version of Hinge, that can get in your way of logging in or simply creating an account on Hinge.
So, is your Hinge updated?
6. You’ve attempted to request the verification code way too many times.
Did you get a message along the lines of “Too many login attempts with given phone number”?
The reason you’ve got that is the exact message. You’ve sent too many verification requests.
You tried more times than you should. OR, the phone number you’re using is already used – this can be especially likely if you’re using a free burner number.
7. Your phone number is disabled by your phone number carrier.
Have you paid your phone bills on time?
Because if not, that can get in the way of getting a Hinge verification code.
Some mobile service providers block you from receiving calls or messages for various reasons, one of them is not paying the required bills on time.
So if Hinge is not sending you the verification code, this can be a possible reason.
8. You don’t have service on your mobile.
This can be unlikely, however, it is part of the possible scenarios.
If you’re living in a remote area it’s likely that service on your mobile phone can experience interruptions and issues.
One of the reasons why you’re having trouble receiving the Hinge verification code can be that you don’t have service on your mobile.
Due to those interruptions, the message that has the code can be delayed or even not received at all.
9. You’re using a prepaid phone plan.
Hinge says that you may encounter issues during SMS code verification on Hinge if you’re using a prepaid phone plan.
Hinge doesn’t specify the reasons why using a prepaid phone plan could be a cause for issues with your SMS verification, however, it is listed as one of the main reasons why your code may not be working.
If this isn’t your case, then it’s time to move on to the solutions to this problem!!

What can you do to make the Hinge verification work?
Since your Hinge verification code is not working, you have to come up with solutions if you want to get into the app (again).
There is something wrong that you, Hinge, or your phone did somewhere along the lines, and we’re going to fix that together!
Here’s how you can fix the Hinge verification code error!
– Test your internet, see if it’s working or not.
Since Hinge is not sending you the code, you’ve got to start with the small and easy stuff!
The first logical thing to do when this issue occurs is to check if your internet connection is good enough to get things done.
Test it out by refreshing a page or sending a Whatsapp message to someone. If it seems that your internet is fine, then we’ve got to move on to the rest!
– Stop using a Google Voice number or similar services.
The number one reason why Hinge won’t send you a code verification – when everything is okay with the app and the internet – is a burner number.
Hinge clarifies that if you’re using a burner number such as Google Voice, then you’re very likely to not receive the code.
That’s because the numbers in services such as Google Voice are very easily accessible and the phone numbers are used multiple times for the same purpose.
In this case, you’re very likely to be using a phone number already used on Hinge by another person before you.
– See if you have service in your phone number.
Not having service in your phone number can be yet another reason why your Hinge verification code isn’t arriving on time.
So, what’s there to do?
You have to check if you have service in your phone number.
If you have service in your phone number, then the issue is elsewhere.
However, if you don’t have service in your phone number, you have to wait until you do for the Hinge verification process to work out!
– Try turning the airplane mode on and off.
This is like refreshing your WiFi connection and mobile service.
If there are any issues with your internet or mobile service, you’re likely to find out by turning the airplane mode on and off.
This is a great way of ‘starting over’, a refresh on your mobile before you proceed to try again for the Hinge verification.
– Delete Hinge and reinstall it.
If your Hinge verification process isn’t working, it can be because your Hinge app isn’t updated.
By deleting and reinstalling Hinge on your phone, you’ll make sure you’ll get the latest version of Hinge – the updated version – and it’ll get rid of any glitch it possibly has.
– Restart your phone.
This is the ultimate way of ‘refreshing’.
If there’s any glitch, issue, or the like then you’ll be able to find out or get rid of it by restarting your phone.
This will give things a fresh start. You’ll get to enter your pin code for your phone number, reconnect to the WiFi, and you’ll be able to start fresh.
If it still doesn’t work out then you’ve got to:
– Avoid persisting. Wait for 24 hours to try again.
Hinge instructs us to try a couple of times and if those don’t work out, then it advises us to wait for 24 hours to try again.
Since it’s coming from the designers of the apps, this is advice we want to follow!
It doesn’t specify a reason, but I’m assuming it helps avoid the ‘too many requests’ notification or overloading the system with requests.
– Contact your phone number carrier.
If you’ve tried everything, even waited 24 hours, then there could be a problem with your phone number carrier.
This is when you have to reach out to their support system and let them know that you’re waiting for a pin ().
You want to be specific and clarify that the PIN you’re waiting to receive it’s via SMS Short Codes since Hinge claims that those are the type of texts they use to send the codes to its users.
If the problem doesn’t seem to be in your mobile phone carrier, then you’ve got to try other methods.
