    If you're looking for someone to date, whether you're 25 or older, this is a great choice for finding that special someone. Chat with others, meet new friends and maybe find someone with whom to spend your life.

    I've been on Badoo a few years now. I like that you can change locations to chat to people anywhere in the world. I make it clear on my profile that I live and work in the Europe so am not deceiving anyone. Recommended.

    Great app, overall. Definitely a growing user-base. What I’ve stated continually when being promoted for reviews is that “it’s still growing on me— if Badoo turns out NOT to cripple functionality in favor of becoming ‘pay-to-play’ then I’ll consider it ideal.” Unfortunately, I’m being met with very inconsistent in-app messaging. “Swipe 50 times for your perfect match” — then, some arbitrary number of swipes later (as little as 3 to as many as 20), I’m told “That’s all your swipes [BUY] Premium!” Um, no thanks. I consistently rated this app high because they afford communication via advertisements & viewing them. Furthermore, the purchase of credits isn’t terribly expensive. I will not, however, commit to a monthly statement over a sub-par dating app. I simply won’t. If anyone at Badoo cares to listen, here it is: You’re making the PRECISE mistake every other app/platform makes— you’re banking on the notion that you can “hook” everyone; when you realize you cannot, you simply disable our ability to use your app. It’s unacceptable. I reside in one of the single largest metropolitan areas of the USA. There are some 9,000,000 residents. I see countless “new members” DAILY. YET, here I am— “out of swipes.” And that’s a wrap, I suppose. Folks, it’s good for precisely 4 weeks— UNLESS you ACTUALLY use it a significant amount. In that case, you’ll likely be shut down even faster. It was nice while it lasted; I had hope. ✌🏼

    I feel that people that are writing other people and they’re not responding back yet looking at a photo first should have their accounts froze until they respond back to the messages that they’re receiving. And I would like to also add that if a person is not active for more than a week their account should be deleted by the site and this way it will ensure that people are being proper with keeping up their account. I also feel that they should have a comment remark sheet on each and every person‘s profile from people that have dealt with the individual that way you’ll know if you’re dealing with a standup person or not by reviewing their comment sheet from open comments on people And how they treat others. In order for this dating site to be successful and not end up like Plenty Of Fish or plenty of people play plenty of games they need to take it more serious from the perspective of men and women that are being deliberately targeted.
  • Never thought I would of met my.. Feb 23, 2020

    By THALIAXCVI
    I was starting to get tired of having this app because I would end up having guys already inviting me over to their house or just dtf. But that was until I met someone different, during our first conversation I had went out of my way and called him. We had a good long conversation. So the next day he had asked if I would like to hang out and I said yes. So after meeting up and hanging out on a weekend.. I would say our first date was a success! Initially I downloaded this to make new connections. But after having a third date with the guy, he had asked me out. Of course I said because I really was into his personality! So thanks to Badoo, I got to meet my boyfriend. Oh p.s. Before our first conversation, I had replied to him a week after he had first messaged me. Just because of being busy with work. So if you think of giving up.. don’t! You might end up getting to meet your true love. ❤️

    So all I can really say is this app has really changed my mind about online dating. I use to be against it feeling uncomfortable and everything but it’s shown me a world that not many ppl get to experience because of their lifestyles and just being busy in everyday life, we often don’t have time to go out and meet new ppl. So the few seconds we are able to spare can be used to idk... look for that special someone, or experience new relationships, whether its friends or even just to feel more social with the outside world. I think it helps... and I guess for me it’s always a good experience to be able to chat with someone and get a feel of who they are and what their looking for before actually meeting them. More of Interactional level rather then physical.

    I am an new user and there are a couple of things that I dislike about the app. Firstly it looks like you can't change the area or location in which you want to see people. You can only add your location. I guess the app wants you to expand your horizons? For example, I see people from places that are 13 hours away from my state and I want to see people who are only in my state lol. I understand that there is a "go live" section but I would rather not utilize that. Secondly, when someone is interested in you, you receive a notification. If you are uninterested and "X" them out they are still allowed to message you, or favorite you, or visit your page. Basically you still receive notifications for someone you are uninterested in. It's quit annoying and makes it difficult to get to the people you do like. The only thing I do like is that while swiping through people you like and dislike, you can arrow back to the last person if you a accidently swiped left.
  • App is cool it’s just the people on the app Nov 24, 2019

    By Dajourantonio
    As far as the app itself there is only one issue there are plenty of fake profiles that are not photo verified and a lot of them just have pictures and no information. And sometimes the app shows me people that are nowhere near my location. The real issue is the people that use the app. I noticed a lot of reviews saying that men are the ones that are playing and doing dumb things on this app. BUT. There are a lot of women who are as well. There are that like me and when there is one that I match with and I engage in a conversation with them, they either never respond, or they’ll respond, they talk for a bit and then they stop. Why are you liking my profile if your just gonna ghost me? But then they’ll say that they’re looking for something serious (interesting). There are also a lot of thirst traps on here that just post sexy photos of themselves to get men to follow them on Instagram and boost their already extremely high egos. The reason why I downloaded this app is because I got a lot going on right now and it’s hard to meet women with my current situation. I assumed downloading this app would make things easier but it didn’t. I’m gonna try a few more times and if it still doesn’t work then I’m uninstalling. This is nothing against the developers of the app or the app itself, you guys are awesome. There are a lot of cool features on here. But likeI said before the app itself is cool. It’s just the people.

  • Good app but definitely can be far better Mar 6, 2018

    By Triot777
    Out of all the dating apps this is probably one of the best! Far better than POF. The problems I have with this app are, being linked with someone that is actually in your area! I understand you have 7 million plus members but flipping through the pictures I have not seen atleast 1 person that is within range. Every girl is in other states so that being said It almost makes this app pointless!! The other problem I have is the amount of transgenders on here, some dudes are into that so maybe make a button like male/female/TS and seperate them from being sprinkled in the mix. This app is awesome but it is very limited. Please make it so that you can use your location and be linked with local singles instead of being linked with someone you will never waste time meeting on the complete opposite side of the country!
  • Too MANY FAKES ON HERE Mar 13, 2019

    By Summerlov
    There’s just too many fake profiles . Someone I met over a year ago on here had deleted this app . He & I have kept in contact ever since we met on here . He contacted me last wk & we talked . This past wknd I was in the LOCAL search and came upon his profile . I messaged him asking what he was doing in HOBART since he lives in Palatine . He asked me what was I talking about , that he’s been home all wknd & hadn’t left his area . Someone hacked / stole his profile . Not very happy with that .!! It happened to me on another paying site . They had changed my users name & password , I wasn’t able to get into my account til I realized the site had sent an email about some changes . They had replaced all my photo with another women in a bikini on a yacht & auto charged $73 to my credit card . It happens !! There has to be something about these catfish , fakes & scammers

    By Robneckflordia
    Swipe left or right is slippery, you barely touch it and it swipes left or right on someone. It needs a new motion or something. Next up, the monthly service is to expensive way to expensive, yah I have the money for it but that doesn’t mean it’s a smart investment. 20 bucks a month is a bit much I could maybe do 2 to 5 a month. Like most apps out there today you can’t see if someone likes you unless you either have the love Gods put them back in your matches or if you pay to take a chance to see who it was. Money is short right now cause of the Corona Virus what is this app doing to help. Overall it works well bug wise. There’s not a lot to it depth wise, meaning compared to other apps you put a couple photos of yourself on here, say a few things about yourself, use a few hashtags about what you like and that’s about it. I would like their to be a little more info about my potential partner.

    Don't fall for it the premium, it doesn't do anything apart from let you see who liked you back, but they put more pay walls in after, plus once you have got premium there if no other way of cancelling the subscription as they sneakily hide it, to the point we're I was still getting charged 2 weeks after I unsubribed to tham, then one day the app was like hey your premium is back so they even restated my premium account to charge me further, just seem like an app aiming for your wallet.

    By Jose T
    I don't have issues with apps often but this app gave me so many problems I had to review it. I registered for the 7 day free trial and they charged my card twice and I never got the premium. Also the app freezes my phone when I open it, I've never had this issue with any other app on my phone. Very disappointed I lost 11 dollars, I got scammed.
  • Badoo blocked my account without valid proof and wouldn’t tell me what I did Nov 26, 2020

    By tezacoda
    Blocked my account because I had made too many accounts but when I tried to explain that I had made a new account because I would constantly get logged out because someone was changing my pw they said they’re decision can not be changed even though it’s not my fault...I never posted an inappropriate picture, I was always kind and was never rude. I was a verified user and had never had this problem before. It’s just getting to me lol because I didn’t do anything get blocked and when I would ask over and over what was the reason for blocking me entirely from making another account they said they cannnot provide me with that information ? It didn’t make sense to me, if I violated guidelines why not tell me what guidelines I violated ? I reread the guidelines -0 times and checked off each one. I only ever talked to 1 person daily on the app the other people would ask me for sexual favors which I would decline and I told them that I thought that I was being falsely accused of doing something I did not do but they basically refused to hear me out or check more into it. I have been told on my account that I would be reported and blocked for not giving someone sexual favors so that wasn’t new to me but it’s just really frustrating that they didn’t look deeper into it or go through my messages to see if I had actually did something wrong. It’s been 3 days and I’m still trying to fight to get my account back

    Even with a premium subscription, this still does not give you the full service. You still need to pay more to text people. Badoo, allow you to text certain profiles free, but if they have a profile thats popular for instance? They use this opportunity to make money off this. I think its disrespectful at times, and only interested in money.

    I thought I was getting a "White screen" every 30min because my phone is old. But it turns out that, it was this glitchy app with full of bots. I can understand you earn money from ads, but isn't it too much, when the app "bugs" out 4 out of 5 times and you have to click "close app"? I don't even want to talk about "bots", because it's sligthly better than Tinder where is almost every girl is bot.
  • Terrible app for men Jul 1, 2020

    By Gdidbdidbx
    You are constantly blocked from messaging anyone unless it’s a match, and the active user base is pathetically small. Most users that are on the site are inactive so they would argue that the number is high, but it’s not. Apps like POF and OK Cupid are better for conversation and have about the same amount of users, but you might as well choose Tinder over this app since matching is the only way to message the popular users. You’ll find you can message users who are not popular and certain users can’t be messaged unless you pay for a premium account. Ironically I tried the premium and the moment I bought it many of the users pulling up in the search suddenly disappeared. There are algorithms in place to keep you spending money instead of focusing on actually being a dating app. If you are focused on actually finding a girlfriend or boyfriend take my advice and don’t use this app. Last note, remember that the response to this message from the application maker’s is to try and discredit everything written here in yet another attempt to draw you in and make money. I’m honestly trying to help everyone else not waist their time. Do yourself a favor and try literally any other choice before you try this.

    Well, I actually wanted to give couple more stars, but: I get that you need to monetize your work. But the amount of "offers" is way too much. This would bring you down 3 stars. However, an app thats pops itself to the foreground on random occasions is an absolute no-go. This is at least annoying, luckily I'm in an open relatioship ;-) Still, to me this is a show-stopper.

    I lost 20 dollars for being seen more, being online, and all them happened in just 3 hours! There is a timer for 3 hours. For each feature you are paying 100 coins or more and you will have them only for 3 hours. The things are written with a really small font and you may even accidentally touch a button. They have designed the app the way you spend more money to fill their pockets. Deleted my bank account details in order not to spend any more on it. I will just use Facebook to find my dates.
  • May 4, 2021

    By Deontay Marshall
    I use to like this app several years ago when basic features were free. Now everything's behind a paywall constantly restricting basic features for money. We get that certain features/premium features has a cost for y'all to make money that shouldn't have to be stated BUT when y'all started to put paywalls on read receipts, basic features like those? Y'all are getting greedy, scamming people. The rating has to come down to a 3.O or lower because I can see more bad reviews than good.
  • Good app, rude women. May 21, 2020

    By Silence_2012
    First of all I will have to add that I have a friend who has the badoo app and he says he has actually gone to a few dates with women in person, so I can’t say it doesn’t work. But in my experience the women I was able to chat with just ghosted me in the middle of the conversation and it wasn’t because I was rude or disrespectful, they just didn’t respond. In the real world the chances of woman just leaving in the middle of the conversation is very rare which is why I find it weird and odd that some these women think it’s ok to that just because we’re not talking in person. There’s definitely a problem with that, I don’t think these women really understand that we might see each other in person and they might have to own up to their actions. The only reason I downloaded it was because of the quarantine, otherwise I’d be at the bars or elsewhere approaching like I’m used to. So to the guys out there if your not used to online dating I definitely recommend not trying it, go out and approach in person you’ll have a better chance and if you get rejected just improve your self.

    I've been on and off badoo for the last 7 years. I like using the app. Most other apps are full of fake profiles and jacked up sub prices, but badoo is completely opposite. For a free user you can do most basic things including 50 swipes per day, chatting with anyone you match with, upload pics, videos. The subs is what gets you fancier features like, unlimited swipes, top of the list featuring, see who liked you, unlimited chat. The best part about the subs is that each packages price is fair
  • Title? Oct 20, 2019

    By Ivaniviene
    I think it all depends on the person and what they make out of the app. This app seems popular and has many people to get to know if you want to make friends. I think its a good app to meet people. Intention plays a big role. There are many beautiful females in the app. Its not what i look for but sure is fun when there is interaction. Since im all over the place because of my job i think its a great app form me, because its fun when i bump into girls and i never reveal it, i am still waiting for that one girl who will mention bumping into me. I enjoy making friends, we all have a story that enriches our souls, ill try to let it be known. Its the first app where i can express how females can be a mans friend without expectations. I recommend it and also to those looking for a fling. Lots of that too.

    There’s just too many fake profiles . Someone I met over a year ago on here had deleted this app . He & I have kept in contact ever since we met on here . He contacted me last wk & we talked . This past wknd I was in the LOCAL search and came upon his profile . I messaged him asking what he was doing in HOBART since he lives in Palatine . He asked me what was I talking about , that he’s been home all wknd & hadn’t left his area . Someone hacked / stole his profile . Not very happy with that .!! It happened to me on another paying site . They had changed my users name & password , I wasn’t able to get into my account til I realized the site had sent an email about some changes . They had replaced all my photo with another women in a bikini on a yacht & auto charged $73 to my credit card . It happens !! There has to be something about these catfish , fakes & scammers

    4 stars because people are great and they give a good match accordingly. I was about to give 5 stars but it lacks features like you cannot search someone if you want to. Also if you "skip" the message you are unable to message to that person because the convo. just dissapear not unless the person chat you that's the only time the messages will be retrieved.
  • Account Mar 30, 2020

    I actually really enjoyed this app. There were some pretty decent guys and of course there were some that weren’t to nice. One guy I had to report him he sent an inappropriate photo. He created another account messaged me saying” I had to creat another account someone reported mine.” I told him you sent me an inappropriate picture then deleted his message from me. Few days later I have logged in and out of my account. I go back in a little later my account is blocked. I asked why, they had be do a survey, after it seemed they didn’t like my answer so they blocked my account without explanation and said nothing can be done about it. I truly liked this website probably the best out of all the dating ones, but I won’t set back up an account for something else like this to happen. Thank you guys for creating the site.

    Great app, overall. Definitely a growing user-base. What I’ve stated continually when being promoted for reviews is that “it’s still growing on me— if Badoo turns out NOT to cripple functionality in favor of becoming ‘pay-to-play’ then I’ll consider it ideal.” Unfortunately, I’m being met with very inconsistent in-app messaging. “Swipe 50 times for your perfect match” — then, some arbitrary number of swipes later (as little as 3 to as many as 20), I’m told “That’s all your swipes [BUY] Premium!” Um, no thanks. I consistently rated this app high because they afford communication via advertisements & viewing them. Furthermore, the purchase of credits isn’t terribly expensive. I will not, however, commit to a monthly statement over a sub-par dating app. I simply won’t. If anyone at Badoo cares to listen, here it is: You’re making the PRECISE mistake every other app/platform makes— you’re banking on the notion that you can “hook” everyone; when you realize you cannot, you simply disable our ability to use your app. It’s unacceptable. I reside in one of the single largest metropolitan areas of the USA. There are some 9,000,000 residents. I see countless “new members” DAILY. YET, here I am— “out of swipes.” And that’s a wrap, I suppose. Folks, it’s good for precisely 4 weeks— UNLESS you ACTUALLY use it a significant amount. In that case, you’ll likely be shut down even faster. It was nice while it lasted; I had hope. ✌🏼

    I am an new user and there are a couple of things that I dislike about the app. Firstly it looks like you can't change the area or location in which you want to see people. You can only add your location. I guess the app wants you to expand your horizons? For example, I see people from places that are 13 hours away from my state and I want to see people who are only in my state lol. I understand that there is a "go live" section but I would rather not utilize that. Secondly, when someone is interested in you, you receive a notification. If you are uninterested and "X" them out they are still allowed to message you, or favorite you, or visit your page. Basically you still receive notifications for someone you are uninterested in. It's quit annoying and makes it difficult to get to the people you do like. The only thing I do like is that while swiping through people you like and dislike, you can arrow back to the last person if you a accidently swiped left.
  • App is cool it’s just the people on the app Nov 24, 2019

    By Dajourantonio
    As far as the app itself there is only one issue there are plenty of fake profiles that are not photo verified and a lot of them just have pictures and no information. And sometimes the app shows me people that are nowhere near my location. The real issue is the people that use the app. I noticed a lot of reviews saying that men are the ones that are playing and doing dumb things on this app. BUT. There are a lot of women who are as well. There are that like me and when there is one that I match with and I engage in a conversation with them, they either never respond, or they’ll respond, they talk for a bit and then they stop. Why are you liking my profile if your just gonna ghost me? But then they’ll say that they’re looking for something serious (interesting). There are also a lot of thirst traps on here that just post sexy photos of themselves to get men to follow them on Instagram and boost their already extremely high egos. The reason why I downloaded this app is because I got a lot going on right now and it’s hard to meet women with my current situation. I assumed downloading this app would make things easier but it didn’t. I’m gonna try a few more times and if it still doesn’t work then I’m uninstalling. This is nothing against the developers of the app or the app itself, you guys are awesome. There are a lot of cool features on here. But likeI said before the app itself is cool. It’s just the people.
  • Needs Work May 27, 2020

    By Robneckflordia
    Swipe left or right is slippery, you barely touch it and it swipes left or right on someone. It needs a new motion or something. Next up, the monthly service is to expensive way to expensive, yah I have the money for it but that doesn’t mean it’s a smart investment. 20 bucks a month is a bit much I could maybe do 2 to 5 a month. Like most apps out there today you can’t see if someone likes you unless you either have the love Gods put them back in your matches or if you pay to take a chance to see who it was. Money is short right now cause of the Corona Virus what is this app doing to help. Overall it works well bug wise. There’s not a lot to it depth wise, meaning compared to other apps you put a couple photos of yourself on here, say a few things about yourself, use a few hashtags about what you like and that’s about it. I would like their to be a little more info about my potential partner.
  • Please fix these problems May 4, 2020

    By newtothis2717
    So I like this app more than an other dating app but man it still has the same main problems. For example, can you please make it mandatory for girls to right something on there profile because when girls are so cute and so close and I spend 200 coins on them but it turns out they aren’t compatible with me it truly pisses me off. Also, why is it I paid the 20 dollars for the membership in still can’t message 95% of the girls in my area free. That just makes me mad and I know I can’t get my money back but this app should know that the only people making moves on this app are guys just like in the real world because no girls actually swipe so there isn’t any hardly.m any matching to make free conversations and I don’t know about other guys but when something is a waste of money I get rid of it and that’s where this app is heading so could you please fix some of these main problems 🙏
  • App serves its purpose, albeit not very well. Feb 19, 2020

    By Raygen1012
    The app is flooded with bots and inactive people. They give you an option to watch videos for credits but even when you use credits to boost your profile it goes to any age range and any gender regardless of settings. Not to mention, they spam you constantly if you say yes to push notifications. I don’t want to see “we promised we wouldn’t do this, but please come back” or some other things along those lines that have absolutely nothing to do with someone liking you or favoriting you or even visiting your profile. That’s what the notifications should be for. The app is annoying but it gets the job done for somebody out there. I would like it better if I could really narrow it down to a specific type. We all have types. So being able to specify it down without paying should have been a thing already
  • Good app, rude women. May 21, 2020

    By Silence_2012
    First of all I will have to add that I have a friend who has the badoo app and he says he has actually gone to a few dates with women in person, so I can’t say it doesn’t work. But in my experience the women I was able to chat with just ghosted me in the middle of the conversation and it wasn’t because I was rude or disrespectful, they just didn’t respond. In the real world the chances of woman just leaving in the middle of the conversation is very rare which is why I find it weird and odd that some these women think it’s ok to that just because we’re not talking in person. There’s definitely a problem with that, I don’t think these women really understand that we might see each other in person and they might have to own up to their actions. The only reason I downloaded it was because of the quarantine, otherwise I’d be at the bars or elsewhere approaching like I’m used to. So to the guys out there if your not used to online dating I definitely recommend not trying it, go out and approach in person you’ll have a better chance and if you get rejected just improve your self.
  • Just stay with Tinder ... Apr 30, 2018

    By SinaMT
    First that I downloaded, I was happy that it did let me change location and overall it looked way better than tinder ... first day I started messaging some users and looked alright (getting response and that), day two I couldn’t message anyone getting pop up saying “skip the queue and chat for 10 credits” first off WHAT does skip the queue mean? Like everyone is messaging her/him so im in the queue? ... then I saw Encounter where you swipe right or left to find your match BUT how can I match someone when he/she is 1000km away 😐 and no theres no way to filter your distance. Today I wanted to delete my account but badoo wanted to give me 3 days of premium so I backed out to try premium AND boy what is this?! They say chat with popular users with premium but no i cannot do that ... then I said let me spent 2 dollars to get 100 credits so I can get that “Get to the top” option and GUESS WHAT nothing happened 😃 ... overall Badoo looks good BUT they not clear with their information. Badoo if you reading this give me my 2$ back or give me the service that I paid for 🙏🏽

    Yet another dating app that was good when it started. Now everything that was once free is being locked behind a paywall. Before you had unlimited swipes. Now you only have a certain amount in a day if you have a basic account. You could see when someone read your messages and you could see who visited you. Now all of it is locked. Also before you had a chance for a free trial and to earn free gold now you get nothing.

    No option to see ones password when creating it or changing it. Something so small can cause so much frustration when trying to log in because one can't see if one is typing the correct password in. Please fix it. Also The app without premium is no fun at all. Can do very little without it... Kinda giving up on the app sadly.
  • Apr 24, 2021

    By Milan Karafa
    I had to modify my review and go lower on stars and the reason is simple : You have to pay to send a message and it's a lot. Many women don't use the like feature and they are simply waiting to get a message, so if you don't get matched, you never get to talk. There is just too many small microtransactions for every little action and none of them disappears when you pay for premium.
  • Could be better Apr 28, 2019

    By RYANDAWSON88
    First of I have been using this app for a long time and I have decent amount of success . Anyone who is popular ( pretty much every pretty girl ) is impossible to chat unless you buy credits . I buy credits once every few months . Every user needed certain amount of credits to talk to and I was still ok with that . Then they updated the app and made it to where every person costs 150 credits to talk . So you will run through your credits at a lightening speed and you have to buy more . I am already started to dislike it . Even girls with one pic require 150 credits to say hi . I have spent fair amount of money on the app but with increased credits to talk to a person , I do not want to buy credits anymore and I am using this app way less than before . I randomly swipe right and leave and comeback to see if I matched which is like 1 match in 50 swipes . Developers are getting greedy and it will be the downfall of this app. If you want to keep customers like me who spent money , make it reasonable.

    Very useless App. After upgrading to Premium, they won't still let you have all the features. They will still ask you to buy (credits) to be able to chat with some type of people in the App. It's just a rip-off. Please don't subscribe to Premium else you will regret your actions.
  • Apr 14, 2021

    By Carlos Chinchilla
    This app is pretty good. It allows you to access a lot of paid features by just watching ads(Update 4/14: They seem to have removed this feature so I'm lowering my rating) . Not too many bots, though you do run into scams every now and then. But they are good at banning them. A major issue is that it sometimes tells you that you ran out of likes after only a few swipes. Would be nice to be able to see likes though.

    By Ryan Smedley
    Don't fall for it the premium, it doesn't do anything apart from let you see who liked you back, but they put more pay walls in after, plus once you have got premium there if no other way of cancelling the subscription as they sneakily hide it, to the point we're I was still getting charged 2 weeks after I unsubribed to tham, then one day the app was like hey your premium is back so they even restated my premium account to charge me further, just seem like an app aiming for your wallet.

    By Jose T
    I don't have issues with apps often but this app gave me so many problems I had to review it. I registered for the 7 day free trial and they charged my card twice and I never got the premium. Also the app freezes my phone when I open it, I've never had this issue with any other app on my phone. Very disappointed I lost 11 dollars, I got scammed.
  • Badoo blocked my account without valid proof and wouldn’t tell me what I did Nov 26, 2020

    By tezacoda
    Blocked my account because I had made too many accounts but when I tried to explain that I had made a new account because I would constantly get logged out because someone was changing my pw they said they’re decision can not be changed even though it’s not my fault...I never posted an inappropriate picture, I was always kind and was never rude. I was a verified user and had never had this problem before. It’s just getting to me lol because I didn’t do anything get blocked and when I would ask over and over what was the reason for blocking me entirely from making another account they said they cannnot provide me with that information ? It didn’t make sense to me, if I violated guidelines why not tell me what guidelines I violated ? I reread the guidelines -0 times and checked off each one. I only ever talked to 1 person daily on the app the other people would ask me for sexual favors which I would decline and I told them that I thought that I was being falsely accused of doing something I did not do but they basically refused to hear me out or check more into it. I have been told on my account that I would be reported and blocked for not giving someone sexual favors so that wasn’t new to me but it’s just really frustrating that they didn’t look deeper into it or go through my messages to see if I had actually did something wrong. It’s been 3 days and I’m still trying to fight to get my account back

    Even with a premium subscription, this still does not give you the full service. You still need to pay more to text people. Badoo, allow you to text certain profiles free, but if they have a profile thats popular for instance? They use this opportunity to make money off this. I think its disrespectful at times, and only interested in money.

    I thought I was getting a "White screen" every 30min because my phone is old. But it turns out that, it was this glitchy app with full of bots. I can understand you earn money from ads, but isn't it too much, when the app "bugs" out 4 out of 5 times and you have to click "close app"? I don't even want to talk about "bots", because it's sligthly better than Tinder where is almost every girl is bot.
  • Terrible app for men Jul 1, 2020

    By Gdidbdidbx
    You are constantly blocked from messaging anyone unless it’s a match, and the active user base is pathetically small. Most users that are on the site are inactive so they would argue that the number is high, but it’s not. Apps like POF and OK Cupid are better for conversation and have about the same amount of users, but you might as well choose Tinder over this app since matching is the only way to message the popular users. You’ll find you can message users who are not popular and certain users can’t be messaged unless you pay for a premium account. Ironically I tried the premium and the moment I bought it many of the users pulling up in the search suddenly disappeared. There are algorithms in place to keep you spending money instead of focusing on actually being a dating app. If you are focused on actually finding a girlfriend or boyfriend take my advice and don’t use this app. Last note, remember that the response to this message from the application maker’s is to try and discredit everything written here in yet another attempt to draw you in and make money. I’m honestly trying to help everyone else not waist their time. Do yourself a favor and try literally any other choice before you try this.

    Well, I actually wanted to give couple more stars, but: I get that you need to monetize your work. But the amount of "offers" is way too much. This would bring you down 3 stars. However, an app thats pops itself to the foreground on random occasions is an absolute no-go. This is at least annoying, luckily I'm in an open relatioship ;-) Still, to me this is a show-stopper.

    I lost 20 dollars for being seen more, being online, and all them happened in just 3 hours! There is a timer for 3 hours. For each feature you are paying 100 coins or more and you will have them only for 3 hours. The things are written with a really small font and you may even accidentally touch a button. They have designed the app the way you spend more money to fill their pockets. Deleted my bank account details in order not to spend any more on it. I will just use Facebook to find my dates.

    By Deontay Marshall
    I use to like this app several years ago when basic features were free. Now everything's behind a paywall constantly restricting basic features for money. We get that certain features/premium features has a cost for y'all to make money that shouldn't have to be stated BUT when y'all started to put paywalls on read receipts, basic features like those? Y'all are getting greedy, scamming people. The rating has to come down to a 3.O or lower because I can see more bad reviews than good.

    Two main problems with this app: 1. You have to readjust your filters every. Single. Time. You. Open. The. App. 2. Badoo will randomly open for a second every two hours or so. It'll be completely blank, but my phone says it's badoo that's opening, and nothing I do is making it go away, and i'm fed up with it. I'm not opening it, and so it shouldn't be opening.
