This app would be perfect if it collected height and weight as required fields. Lol. Because inquiring minds want to know.

After submitting the above feedback I received sn email from the Badoo development team (see below). I find their argument regarding weight to be, while noble, also to be rather selective. The app collects and presents age, for example, as a required field. They don’t merely confirm that each user is of legal adult age. This is ageism; shouldn’t a 48 year old man be considered just as worthy to date a woman of any legal age as a man half his age? I’m a 48 year old American man and I am often mistaken for 30 by females here in SE Asia where I’m living my early retirement years. Why should I have to reveal my actual age, which might cause a young woman to filter me out of her consideration? There seems some selective prejudice going on here.
Thanks for your feedback 🙌 We believe all of our members are beautiful inside and out. We do not, would never, and are very opposed to the idea of having an algorithm to filter users based on weight. We believe love and connections are better unfiltered and come in all shapes and sizes 💜"

Badoo blocked my account without valid proof and wouldn’t tell me what I did

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

Hey there, We are sorry you feel this way and feel like we have not explained things clearly enough. As our reports are anonymous we are unable to go into detail. Please do contact us again on @Badoohelp or send an email to Badoo/feedback for information. Hope this helps.

To Whom It May Concern

I think badoo is a great way for people to meet and connect and I know that no one who created this platform will read this or even care but I do believe if you give people the opportunity to see there likes without having to pay for a premium account will have a chance at meeting and connecting with someone special I believe truly that badoo needs to set it self apart from other dating apps enough with the fees and the premium accounts but make way for people to actually build a connection with someone and which could possibly form into a relationship that’s what people want they don’t want to pay for love and also there’s nothing on badoo for Transwomen or Transmen who also need a platform where they can find love and honest connections and at the same time feel safe seen and heard they need a dating app that doesn’t just cater to heterosexual men and women Transgender women and men need a place where they can also make honest and true commitments I just believe badoo can be better but first they need to be better not just ask people to rate there app but also read the Reviews that written by the people who subsequently using this app and also paying for its features I know I’ve said a mouth full but truly hope that someone at badoo reads this and considers making some much needed changes we need inclusivity

Hi there! We've submitted your feedback about making the Liked You Folder a feature you can access without Premium. Don't forget you can chat with all your matches and that voting in Encounters to get matches is the core of getting to know new people on Badoo - and it's free 🙂 If you've got any questions, hit us up @BadooHelp on social media or via
