Happn, created by Didier Rappaport, Fabien Cohen and Antony Cohen and first launched in Paris, France, in February 2014, is a location-based dating app designed to bring people who may have crossed paths but never met an opportunity for romance together. The goal is for people who may have seen one another but never connected - giving people who have crossed paths but never actually connected the chance for romance.

Happn uses geolocation technology to match users with those they've physically encountered, creating an easy and user-friendly way for potential matches to connect. For example, suppose two users meet in a physical area at the same time. In that case, their profiles will show up on each other's Happn feeds with options to like or reject potential matches as soon as they appear.

Happn quickly rose to fame across Europe and then spread throughout North and South America and Asia. By 2019, over 50 million users had registered with Happn globally.

Happn has gone far beyond its core function of connecting people who have crossed paths by adding features designed to enhance user experience, such as voice messaging and attracting potential matches through "charms."

Happn has recently come under scrutiny over its treatment of user data, particularly accessing Facebook profiles. However, the app has taken measures to address concerns and strengthen its privacy policies.

Happn has quickly become one of the go-to apps for local area connections due to its innovative location-based dating approach and user experience.
