Dating apps are hot on the app store for many obvious reasons. For years these apps have helped people to mingle and find their partner but at the same time these dating apps have suffered from backlash related to privacy concerns. Badoo is one of the world’s biggest dating applications with over 400 million users on board. It gives Tinder a tough competition and it is also an Editor’s Choice app on the Google Play Store. Badoo is a free to download dating app but you can make in-app purchases, buy tokens and increase your chances of finding the right match online. The app is available for both Android and iOS users. It’s available to download in over 190 countries and has support for 7 different languages.
Like most dating apps Badoo has the swipe and match feature where users can swipe right on the person they find attractive. This colorful dating app blends in all kinds of dating app features bringing in features from all the top dating apps available. Apart from the swiping feature, Badoo also lets you see who you’ve crossed paths with – something that the dating app happn is famous for. Additionally, you can also check out if a certain person you like has mutual friends with you on the app.
Badoo is a dating app but it’s also a giant social platform. You can live stream on it, start video calls with people and send them messages. In short, there’s a lot to do on the app more than just dating. The ultimate goal, however, is to find the match of your dreams.
All dating apps have a privacy concern that needs to be addressed especially since these apps use your location to find potential matches around or near you. Badoo claims to keep its platform free of fake profiles and secure for everyone through its tight verification system. The app verifies your profile through a direct call, your Facebook profile or through your photo. Profiles that are not verified are kept in a separate category and you can choose to not match with profiles that are not verified by the system.
This all might seem great but in reality Badoo doesn’t keep the platform completely clean of bots and fake profiles. In fact the volume of fake profiles have spiked recently and legit users with proper verifications are being blocked by the app. This has resulted in the app getting a lot of negative reviews but we do hope that the team at Badoo looks into this matter soon.
The good news is that you can save yourself from getting harassed or spammed in the app through blocking any user, and restricting the location preferences. Badoo also doesn’t let anyone send more than two messages to someone unless they reply back to avoid spamming.
What stands out about Badoo is that once you do start chatting with a potential match there are tons of different features in the chat to avail. From fun emojis to a proper video call, the free chat feature in Badoo is definitely up to the mark.
There’s more to love about the app than just that though – the design and UI are great. Crafted in beautiful colors and a simple look, Badoo is an app that is pretty easy to navigate about. There are ads and in-app purchases in the app though but you don’t really need to bother about them too much because they won’t disrupt your dating experience in the app.
