About this app

Welcome to Badoo, the dating app that makes it easier to date 💜

In a society that profits on our self-doubt, Badoo is the online dating app where it pays to be the real, unapologetic you.

We’re a little different from other dating apps. We fight the ambiguity of modern dating with authentic, unfiltered chats. We believe real connection is born from being honest in who you are and what you really want.

Badoo is the dating app that allows you to match and chat with people, make friends, or find a partner. We make it easier to meet people near you:

✔ Don’t be shy: Introduce yourself, complete your profile to raise your popularity and get more matches.

✔ Have fun with our filters: Find friends and dates by using our special filters.

✔ Meet People Nearby: Meet people who live near you, make new friends and chat for free.

✔ It’s a Match!: Straight forward swiping, right to get a match and left to skip.

✔ Video Chat: Don’t stick to messages! Make real connections with your match by chatting to them over a video call.

✔ Have fun: Share pictures from other social networks.

✔ Better Together: Invite your friends to Badoo and share profiles you are interested in.

✔ Clips: Record yourself answering fun questions like ‘What’s your signature dish?’ and give potential dates a cute conversation starter.

✔ Share your mood: Craving coffee or in the mood to laugh? Let people know! That way, you’ll be able to match someone who’s on the same vibe as you at that moment.

✔ Intentions: Being on a dating app doesn’t mean you just want to date. You might want something serious, to find friends or have a deep chat. Whatever you're here for, let people know.

Start your dating journey today!

Whether you’re looking to start dating, have chats, or make friends, you’re sure to find it on Badoo.

✔ Ready to chat and date? Our great features mean you’ll be chatting about all sorts of things (like whether or not you’d survive a zombie apocalypse!) before you even get to your date.

✔ Chat for free with singles and make local friends.

✔ Meet our lovely community with million monthly active users looking to make friends, go on dates and fall in love.

Badoo is a dating app that ensures safety and respect within our community. We do not tolerate any kind of inappropriate behaviour and have strict usage guidelines, as well as an extensive list of safety features to ensure the best dating experience with us.

Safety Centre 💜
Where you can find in depth guides, useful tools and essential helplines to date with confidence and ease.

This keeps you safe from unsolicited images. If a graphic image is detected in our dating app, we’ll blur it and warn you of the content.

These little ticks means that their dating profile has been vetted by us—and there isn’t a bot on the other side!

Video calling ☎️
Being able to have video calls means you can really see the person you’re talking to.

Personalised settings 🔧
Tailor your settings to make sure your profile is the way you want it to be, like deciding when you appear online and who can message you.

Rubbish now, nothing but pop ups and adverts, every 3-4 people you look at follows with an advert you have to wait, 5-10 seconds to get rid of. Yes I know it doesnt sound much but when it's happening every 5 seconds or less it gets tedious. Not to mention the app allowing people that keep getting blocked, to make new profiles so they can contact people over and over.

Its not a bad app but it's not a great one either. I paid for lifetime premium and it basically gives almost no benefits. Now they've come up with premium plus which wasn't out when I bought premium and it's £17 more than a Netflix subscription to do what should already be in the premium version. Everytime I log into the app I have to sort through the filter because for some reason it doesn't save changes, don't remember the last time this got updated. I'd recommend bumble over this.

Used to be good for matching with people, now it's just swipe 5 or 6 times, ad. Swipe 5 or 6 more times, another ad. Basically took away the banner ads to force you to watch these 5-10 second ones after you swipe a certain amount of times. Probably because they added a new premium type and restricted the other one and doubled the price... Oh well, bars it is. Would probably have more luck there if I'm honest

Hey there! We are sorry that you feel this way. The ads have been put in place so that you can speak to your matches for free. With premium, you will no longer see the adverts. Hope this helps!
