What is Hot or Not?

The Game by Hot or Not is a dating and chat app that connects people in their local area. Hot or Not is rated for users ages 17 years and older and is free to download and use, but serves advertisements and offers in-app purchasesand subscriptions to enhance the user experience.  This app is available in both the App Store and the Google Play Store.

 

While The Game by Hot or Not is touted as a free app, the reality is that users must pay to get anything out of the app.

 

Per the developer:

“Hot or Not is free to use but, for those of you who want to stand out from the crowd and interact with our top-rated users, we also offer a large range of premium services such as credits and Hot or Not Premium. Alternatively, keep an eye out for our offer-wall promotions that'll reward you for taking part in surveys and app downloads!”

 

Again, those users wishing to connect with others or reach out to other users on the platform must pay some subscription or membership fee. A Hot or Not Premium subscription is $2.99 USD for seven days, $7.99 USD for one month, $19.99 USD for three months, $27.99 USD for six months, but does not include the additional charges for things such as boosting one’s profile so that it’s seen by more users.

 

The long and short of it is that The Game by Hot or Not is a hookup app and is not used by people looking for long-term or meaningful relationships.

 

A quick look at user reviews and feedback offers a glimpse, with many users admitting that they were only on the app for one thing and that thing is not a relationship.

Is Hot or Not safe for my kids?

Another of the many dating apps on the market, The Game by Hot or Not is an app for adults, not children. Anytime an app connects strangers for the purpose of meeting, it rules out applicability to minors.

Like the popular dating app Tinder, The Game by Hot or Not is based upon appearances, not actual substance. People looking to be matched with other users with similar interests will be disappointed as the purpose of Hot or Not is to match people with other warm bodies in the local vicinity.

Parents, if you find the Hot or Not app on your child’s phone, you should have a conversation and also find out who they have been communicating with on the app, as they could be arranging to meet up with an adult.

One last item of note is that reviewers have complained about erroneous charges being made to their accounts after having connected payment information or authorizing purchases for the app.

Whether this is user error or not, this is something for users to be aware of when they download the Hot or Not app.

Again, the purpose of this app is to connect with local strangers and meet up, with the emphasis being placed on how a person looks not who a person is. Just like Tinder, Hot or Not is not an app for minors.
