Hi5 is a popular social networking app that was founded in 2004. Boasting seventeen years of existence, Hi5 has managed to garner millions of users onto its platform. Similar to networks such as Friendster and Facebook, this chat room is perfect for singles who enjoy casual dating and potentially long lasting friendships or relationships.
It is safe to say that this chat room offers more of a relaxed dating atmosphere. Want to know more about this incredible dating chat room? In this Hi5 review, you will join me in exploring the ins and outs of this dating platform.

- Easy sign-up process
- Messaging feature is free to use
- Large user base
- Quick complaint resolution system
- Slow loading website
Hi5 attracts millions of worldwide members. There are 10.5 million members from the United States alone. But just judging from those who interacted with me, the Hi5 website contains a majority of members who hail from United States, United Kingdom, and South American countries.
Even better is the fact that Hi5 is gender proportionate. Unlike dating sites that may have more men than women or vice versa, this chat room is made up of 50% men and the same number of women. This is because the site developers wanted a potential for every male and female member who joins the chat room.
I noticed that the acceptable age for the members on the chat room is 18-35 years old. The most interesting aspect that comes with this social dating platform is its diverse user base. As members hailed from all over the world, the chats were rather exciting.
The dating section of this social networking app makes it possible to not only meet other singles but also share photos, hobbies and interests, as well as create status updates. So, finding a partner is easy. With more than 40 million singles visiting the platform on a monthly basis, you are bound to meet at least a handful of people who will catch your fancy.
With 24,000 sign-ins every single day, a majority of profiles on the chat rooms are active. The active users in the chat room are looking to build romantic connections both online and offline. There are no restrictions as to how members can interact or the kind of content that they can share. There are members that will make their intentions known in their status updates while others prefer one on one chats before making their intentions known.
Sign Up Process
Signing up to Hi5 took me a total of 3-5 minutes. With the set-up being rather simple and straightforward, and the user interface being friendly, I ended up with an account in the shortest possible time.
You have three registration options on Hi5: Google account, Facebook, and email. It is up to you to choose the option that you are most comfortable with. I found signing up with my Google account the best option for me.
First, you are asked to provide a username and appropriate password that you will use on the platform. Note that the chat room calls for strong passwords. Therefore, using a general name as a password is not acceptable. In fact, I had to try out a few password options before ending up with the one that worked for me. If you get a “weak password” notification as you are signing up, keep trying until you get it right.
Additional information includes your ethnicity and gender. Of course, you will also be asked for an email confirmation. Once your email is confirmed, only then can you join the chat room.
