You can either sign up to the app from the Apple or Google Play store or sign up on the website. You can link up the profile with Twitter or Facebook to verify the profile. The platform will automatically display information about you from your social media property on your profile. Once your photo has been verified you can increase your chances of finding a match by adding in videos, photos, languages, location, interests, work and education.
Badoo works on a freemium model where the free accounts allow you access to some features of the platform. Paying for premium grants you access to better features that significantly improve the chances of getting a match. With a premium membership/subscription, you can also get access to some of the most popular people on the platform and also the newest members. You can also highlight messages and switch to the invisible mode when browsing profiles. You can also use credits to remove restrictions and increase the visibility of your profile.
The best thing about the platform is that you can have tons of potential mates. It has millions of members from the UK, the Czech Republic, Russia, Poland, Germany, Venezuela, Chile, and Colombia.
All being said, we rate Badoo a 3.7 out of 5. The main reason for the negative impression, is because of the high ratio of men as compared to women on the platform. It is really hard to find a serious date here because of that.
