Here is a list of the top questions we receive from users just starting out on Hawaya.
How can I change the amount of mail notifications I receive?
Mail notifications are emails sent to your email address to alert you when you have a new visitor, a new message, a new match... You can choose if you want to receive them or not. It's up to you, but remember: if your match is visiting your profile, you might want to know about it immediately, don't you?
You can always change your mail notification settings by going to Settings. Click Edit next to 'Mail settings' and choose your preferred notification settings. Don't forget to save your changes!

I want to change my birth year
Due to safety reasons you can only change your date of birth once. If you made a mistake in your birth year and you can't correct it yourself anymore, please contact the Help Desk with a scan of your ID so we can correct it for you.
I've forgotten my password. What do I do?
Click on the 'Forgot your password?' link on the log in page and follow the instructions.
How can I block users?
On all profiles and in all messages, you'll find a 'Block' link if you click the three dots in the circle at the right. Blocked users can no longer contact or visit you. You won't see them in Discover or in your search results.
You can also report abuse by clicking 'Report abuse' on the user's profile or in his/her private message.
How can I change my email address?
Go to Settings and choose Edit in the Account section. Enter your new email address and click the 'Save' button. Note that you must confirm your new email address by clicking the link in the email we will then send to your new address.
