How to Sign Up for HUD App

HudApp SignUp
  • Registration is free
  • Sign-up in three ways
  • Provide basic information to become a member
  • Finish signing up in five minutes
  • No email verification needed
  • Signing up with your phone number can be a little difficult

For iOS users, there are three ways to sign up to HudApp. First is with your Apple ID. Second is with your mobile number. Lastly, it's with your Facebook account. If you are using android, you may use the last two options.

However, during the time of testing, signing up using the phone number is having some error even if it was tried using different devices and numbers.

Once you've chosen from the sign-up options, you will be asked to enter your location, identify your gender, chooses whether you are signing up as an individual or as a couple, choose whether you are interested in women, men, everyone, or couples, and the last question is about your birthday.

Upon finishing that part, the screen will show you the page about notification settings. You may choose "Notify Me," or "Not now" based on your preference.

It seems that that's the end of it, however, the registration process will not be successful unless you agree to start the 7-days free trial.

If you are using your Apple ID, you need to link it and the subscription payment will be charged to your account after the trial period. If you are using your mobile number and Facebook account, you need to link your credit card so you can proceed and check your profile.

Making Contact on HUD App

HudApp Contacting
  • Video chat is available
  • Send recorded voice and video messages
  • Make a move and get other members' attention
  • Manual searching is not available
  • You cannot contact other members unless you upload a profile picture
  • Unlimited chatting
  • Anonymous mesaging

There are several ways to communicate and connect with other members of HudApp. One of its best-contacting features is unlimited chatting. Video Calling is free and it has a special feature of blurred call if the members are not comfortable to see each others' faces yet. You can also send and receive photo messages. It gives the app an extra thumbs up since meeting people is the main purpose of any dating app.

Even if manual searching is not a feature of the app, you have the option to scroll and browse among the members and react to their profiles by clicking like or dislike. They call it endless scrolling which is similar to Tinder's Swiping feature. The difference is you can press the button of your choice, whether you like it or not. 

It is strongly encouraged that you should upload a profile picture before you start connecting with other members.

HUD App Profile Quality

  • Profile photo is required before you can mingle with other members
  • Shows STD badge
  • Strict guidelines for photo uploading
  • Asking for money or promoting Snapchat or cam sites are prohibited
  • Create your own avatar and use accessories for more fun

    Profiles in the HUD App are not very detailed compared with other hookup apps. However, a profile photo is required before users can use the app's messaging services.

    The app has strict photo upload guidelines, discouraging users from promoting their social media accounts. The app also prohibits users from asking and receiving money or gifts with monetary value. The good thing about the HUD App's profiles is the STD badge shown on their profiles. This means the user is free from sexually transmitted diseases and is safe to hook up with.

    Users can create their avatars for an enhanced dating experience.

    Guidelines for uploading photos:

    • The face should be visible
    • Should be alone in the photo
    • No minors in the photo
    • Hiding your face or facing back
    • Photos that are blurred will be rejected

    HUD App Real Life Review

    My boyfriend left me and I was broken hearted for months. A friend was using HudApp and she covinced me to try it too. The first few weeks were boring. But it's now my sixth week and it's starting to be fun. Meeting a lot of hot guys now. This is exciting!  - Karla, 27

    This app is not useful at all. Good thing there was a free premim trial. I tried using all the features, but it's not good enough for me. -Mark, 33

    Design and Usability

    The design of HudApp is modern and also inviting. The contrast of colours makes it more appealing, especially to the younger generations. It's neat and can let you choose and scroll along with its features.

    However, the loading time is a little bit slow, which can become annoying.

    Most features are easy to use, except for the signing up using the mobile number. People who don't have either of the Apple ID or Facebook account won't have an easy time creating their HudApp account.

    For security purposes, the app blocks the profile quickly once it detects unusual activity, location or other credentials.

    Heart or Reject Profiles

    You’re presented with a stack of profiles and you indicate whether you like them or not. While you can’t swipe left and right like most of the competitor apps, you tap the heart or X icon to indicate yes or no. If you both “heart” each other, it’s a match and you’re free to start chatting.

    Dating Prompts

    Dating Prompts are designed to help you initiate conversations light-hearted and engagingly. They usually consist of open-ended questions or topics that encourage discussion, sharing, and interaction, making it easier for people to communicate and get to know each other in social or professional settings. 

    Top Profiles

    With a paid subscription, you can access the "Top Profiles" feature, which allows you to see profiles garnering the most interest alongside newer profiles on the platform. This feature can enhance your interaction and engagement on the app by highlighting popular or intriguing profiles.

    Get Garbo

    HUD has partnered with Garbo, a new online background check that helps individuals see if someone has a history of causing harm using limited information like a first name and phone number. Garbo's background check scans available arrest, conviction, and sex offender records to see if they can identify any harmful or violent records potentially associated with an individual.

    Safety Tips

    The "Safety Tips" feature on the HUD App is a collection of guidelines and advice aimed at helping users navigate the online dating landscape securely.

    Linking Spotify allows you to share your music preferences with potential matches, enhancing your connection with others based on shared musical interests. This feature adds a layer of personalization to your profile, letting others know your taste in music.

    Push Notifications

    Push Notifications are alerts sent to your mobile device to keep you updated on activities within the app, such as new messages, profile likes, or match notifications. This feature ensures you don't miss out on potential connections or important updates, even when you're not actively using the app.

    Match Feed

    The "Match Feed" feature in the HUD App is designed to enhance your experience by categorizing potential matches into distinct tabs, helping you navigate and connect with others based on different criteria.


    The "Incognito Mode" feature allows you to browse and use the app while keeping your profile hidden from the general match feeds, providing privacy during your activity on the platform. 

    Rewind Dislikes

    The "Rewind Dislikes" feature is available to Premium and Premium+ members. It allows you to revisit and potentially change your decision on the last profile you closed. If you made a quick dismissal (a swift "x") on a profile and regretted it, the rewind feature lets you return to that profile, allowing you to revise your initial decision​.

    For You, Active, and New

    The For You category shows more personalised recommendations of profiles. The Active tab shows users who are very active but still meet a your filtering criteria. The New category is for you who’ve just recently joined.

    HudApp is a relatively new app. Since new is always better, as they say, there's a lot of expectations about it.Signing up is not easy. It differs based on the kind of device that you are using. Also, during the time of testing, using the mobile login method has been resulting in errors. Linking it to your Facebook account is the easiest way to enter the app.Reviews from other websites and some users state that the app is not very good, and not so easy-to-use. Despite the bad reviews, it's a good point that the app offers a 7-day free premium trial. Not all websites can offer such. But if you are forgetful, there's a big chance that you might get charged for the subscription fee. The mechanics of the app is more for finding fun and just all games. So if you're not really looking for something serious, you might still want to find it fun.
