What is Hiwave?
The assistant you need — and the wingman you deserve.
Just place your HiWave sticker on your phone or your wallet, and let us take care of the rest. With a simple tap, you can exchange any and all of your contact details with anyone you meet – ensuring the smoothest introductions you’ve ever had (unless you’ve met Ryan Reynolds, because that man puts us all to shame).
Plus, your new contact doesn’t need an app or sticker of their own!

Do the HiWave stickers and app work on all phones?
Our stickers will scan on almost all Android phones, as well as recent iPhones (any version released after the iPhone X). The app is compatible with most phones, regardless of make or model.
Why isn’t my HiWave sticker working with my Android?
HiWave uses a technology called Near Field Communication, or NFC. Different Android manufacturers place their NFC readers in different parts of the phone, which may be why you’re having trouble. Most Android phones have their reader on the back center of the phone. To resolve this issue, just follow these short steps:
- Go to “Settings” on your phone.
- Search “NFC,” and make sure it’s enabled.
- Move your sticker across the back of your phone. Wherever the sticker is when you receive a push notification is where your NFC reader is located.
Do I need to download the HiWave app to use the sticker?
To receive contact information from someone else, you DON’T need the HiWave app. When you scan their sticker, their details will automatically pop up in a web browser. Depending on how the sticker owner wants to be contacted, you can add automatically add their number to your contacts, connect with them on social networks, etc…
To share your own information with others using a HiWave sticker, however, you do need to download the app in order to create a profile with the details you want people to see. This profile will then be linked to your sticker.
Do I need a HiWave sticker to use the app?
No! The HiWave app is a better version of your default contact app—no stickers required. It allows you to organize all your contacts by features like location and time added, among others—something your default contacts app cannot do. If you do have a sticker, it seamlessly integrated with the HiWave app.
How long do HiWave stickers last?
HiWave stickers last up to 100,000 taps—that’s a lot of new friends and connections.
What happens to my sticker if I get a new phone?
Once you’ve made a HiWave profile, there’s no limit to the amount of stickers you can link to it. So when you get a new phone, you don’t have to worry about keeping your same old sticker. Simply order a fresh one for free and then connect it to your original profile.
Where should I position my HiWave?
We recommend placing your HiWave on the bottom half of the back of your phone, since this spot is one of the easiest for others to scan.
Do I have to put the HiWave sticker on my phone?
Nope! You can put your HiWave anywhere you want—from your wallet to your laptop screen to your checkout counter (if you’re a business). Your HiWave, your rules. You decide!
What phones are compatible with HiWave?
Any iPhone that came out after the iPhone X are compatible without needing to download an app. For more detailed information on iOs and Android phones, check out our compatibility list.
Why haven't I received my free HiWave yet?
In order to be able to ship a HiWave for free, we have to use good ol’ fashioned snail mail. We don’t get any tracking code from USPS. Sometimes it takes them a little while. But rest assured, your HiWave was sent out!
If you think your HiWave got lost in the mail, no biggie! Just submit another order and write in the customer notes that this is a repeat order. Including your order number is helpful but not required!
