The registration process is very simple. It only takes a few minutes to create a profile here. Only little information is mandatory for registering. We can register with a Google account right away. Alternatively, we can use another e-mail provider. In the first step, we enter a username, a password, and a valid e-mail address. Additionally, we need to enter our age. Registration is only possible if we are older than 18 years. Also, we choose our gender, and the one that we are looking for. This website allows gay and straight matchmaking.
Also, we must agree to the terms and conditions, and to the communication guidelines. This is the one and only step required for registration. More details are not asked for. Of course, this is a bad sign. Our profile does not contain one piece of useful information. Other members will not know anything about us. Plus, they will not know what we look like. We do not have to upload a profile picture.
The registration is very basic. That ensures a fast and smooth creation of a new profile. But the profile is of bad quality. The fact that it is possible to register without providing any information lowers the quality of the whole website. Moreover, it makes this site less reliable. Last but not least, we did not have to verify our account. We were able to complete the registration, and visit the portal, without verifying our profile. This lowers the safety for other users. Fake profiles can be created easily. Also, spammers could register here as well.
Without verifying our account, we visited the members´ area. We were able to see all profile pictures. Also, it was possible to visit each section of the site. Of course, we received some notifications that we should verify our account. But this is simply not mandatory. So, we just did not do it during our review. In general, this is poor personal data protection. Imagine, everyone can register and read all information in each profile.
The design of the website is modern and appealing. Thanks to the great design, we have a good overview of all areas. At the top of the platform, we see the different sections. There, we can check our likes and favorites. Plus, we see our profile settings and the inbox. By the way, our inbox fills up fast. We received a lot of attention from other users. Later on, we will explain what that means. Before that, we want to describe the platform a bit more.
The profiles on the site look great. We are able to scroll through the members´ area by ourselves. An alternative to that is to use the search function. We can see most images on a profile. Most of the profiles uploaded more than just one image. Also, we can read all provided personal information. We conclude that the profiles look good. They look a little too good to be real.
Some profiles show professional models. Other profiles show sensitive content. Additionally, some profile pictures do not fit the profile descriptions. According to our experience, the profiles on this site are fake. To prove our impression, we did some research. On the internet, we found reviews from former users. They also mention fake profiles in their reports. Also, the operator of the site admits using moderated fake profiles.
Actually, that is stated on the landing page already. There, we read about entertainment profiles. As it is not made clear that all profiles are fake and moderated, we call this website a rip-off. Also, the purpose of entertainment is noted. But not one user of a dating site wants to be entertained virtually. Plus, entertainment is not the actual goal of moderation.
A fake chat operator will actively animate us into a chat. They encourage us to spend money on the website. Their goal is to increase the income of the operator. By the way, receiving many messages right after the registration is a clear hint of a fake chat. While chatting, a fake chat operator will not identify as a fictional person. They are trying to cover the moderated chat as long as possible. A user must buy coins to chat. The fake chat operators will try to generate as many messages as possible.
