Users cannot get the most out of the platform with a free membership. The featured paid membership is meant to fill this gap. With a paid subscription, members can have their profile shown on the front page of the member area. This enables them to get more visits to their profile page, which enhances their chances of finding a match. At least, that is what the site would have you believe.
Our review of the platform showed that this is not the case. There was negative feedback from dating review sites. Many members who have used the paid version of MeetDisabledSingles.com have reported being bombarded with messages while on free membership. These chats and matches dried up once they had subscribed. Most of them felt set up. Others also reported that they had experienced recurring charges, even after halting their use of the site. Cancellation is only possible at least 24 hours before the renewal date.
The following is an excerpt from the terms and conditions
When you purchase a one-month or shorter subscription to the Site, unless you cancel such membership at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to its expiration, your subscription will automatically renew at the then-current monthly subscription rate. If you purchase a three month or longer subscription to the Site, unless you cancel such membership at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to its expiration, your subscription will automatically renew at the subscription rate equivalent to the amount paid by you for the subscription divided by the number of months of your subscription.
Users lose data control
By registering on MeetDisabledSingles.com, members hand over their account and other information to the operators. The website also collects other data, such as the user’s IP address, location address, and device information. This information is shared with affiliates and other sites owned by the operator. They can also pass on the data to new owners in the event of a merger or acquisition.
Therefore, users who are conscious of how their data is used and want to control how it is disseminated, should avoid this site. While most platforms claim to need this data to enhance the user experience, that reasoning is invalid. Those using the platform trade their information and receive no benefit in return.
