Badoo is better than Tinder, there's an issue with men posing as women. Key features like seeing mutual likes and sending messages without credits are lacking. Bugs persist, like notifications without follow-through. Limited options and persistent ads plague the experience. Filters don't save, and location deception is common. The latest update removes the ability to favorite matches, pushing users towards paid features. Profiles are often hidden, favoring foreigners over local matches.

Limited options! after I set basic filters, age, orientation, and distance, there's been nobody to swipe on for days, just a prompt to update my filters, which are already set outside my comfort zone. Also, everyone is "photo verified," but when you match with someone and send a message no response even when they're online, what a waste of time. I'm deleting my profile and requesting a refund

Without premium, every 8 profiles you get an ad. Most of the time it is an annoying full-screen ad. You know, the kind that blares sound at you and you have to wait to skip? Also, your filter settings other than age and distance NEVER save. Every time you open the app they clear. Lastly, you can just set your location where ever. Lots of people from asia with US locations and some even tell you in their profile they aren't in the US but just lied about their location.

We appreciate your feedback about ads on Badoo. We use ads so our members can chat with their matches for free. If you upgrade to a Premium subscription, you won't see any ads. If you need any help, please contact us on social media @BadooHelp.
