When it comes to free dating apps like Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, and others, people frequently overlook the pioneering ones like Match, eHarmony, and Badoo.
One of the most popular dating applications worldwide, the site was founded in 2006 and is now accessible in over 190 countries and 47 languages. It’s a freemium app, so in addition to the free download, there are in-app purchases available.
The purpose of Badoo is to facilitate interactions between locals and, if everything goes well, the setting up of dates. There are a few other features that users may use to interact with one another after communicating for a while, like meeting people nearby, looking for users in various locations across the world, encounters (which is simply swiping on individuals in your region), and video chat.
Users build their profiles by uploading photos of themselves, writing bios that reflect who they are and what makes them tick, and even connecting with others who have similar interests or friends. Even more functions are available to those who pay for in-app purchases. The following are some of these “Super Powers,” or premium features:
- Increased Visibility: This puts your profile photo on the front page of the app, known as the Spotlight panel, so you’ll have attract more attention from potential suitors.
- See Your Likes: Like most dating apps, paying Badoo’s monthly subscription allows you to see who has liked your profile, giving you a chance at a guaranteed match.
- Popular Chat: Premium users can directly interact with the most popular people on the app.
- Message Highlights: This feature allows you to highlight your messages, pushing it to the top of your match’s inbox.
- Invisible Mode: Invisible mode allows you to browse the app without being visible to other users, so you can go through what the app has to offer without putting your profile out there for the world to see.
Regardless of whether you’re using the free or paid version, the app is an ideal way to meet other people interested in similar things as you.
Deleting Your Badoo Account
Even though the Badoo dating app is great for meeting new people, there are some circumstances in which you might want to remove it. This might be the case if you’ve found someone to hang out with or if the app is making you bored. Or perhaps it’s because the app is frequently accused of having poor privacy safeguards in place, putting your data at constant risk. Whatever the reason, this guide will show you how to permanently delete your Badoo account.
It’s possible to delete your Badoo account in a few different ways because the service is accessible on so many different operating systems, including Android, iOS, PC, and Mac. They are all covered in this manual.
Please be aware that your account does not immediately disappear before we continue. Instead, a 30-day deactivation period occurs. While nobody can see you during this time, it works as a good fallback in the event that you change your mind and decide to continue using it later.
Pick your preferred platform first. We will now discuss each step in detail.
Deleting Your Badoo Account on PC
Make sure you sign in to your account via the Badoo website before deactivating your Badoo account on a PC. Your email and password should make this simple.
After that, click on your name in the top left corner of the page to go to your profile. After that, navigate to settings in the top right corner of the account screen. You will be directed to a page with account options once you click.
You’ll find the “Delete Account” option at the bottom of your account if you scroll down. A pop-up box will show when you click it asking whether you’re sure you want to remove the account. There will be numerous checkbox alternatives that will try to persuade you to change your opinion. You can get a Premium discount from the platform to stay on it as well. By selecting “Delete your account,” you can reject that.
Then, Badoo would query you regarding the reason for account deletion. You can fill out as many of the numerous reasons as you desire. If not, just complete your own and press the “Continue” button. To complete the deletion, the platform will ask you to provide your password and a few special characters. If you do this and click “Delete” once more, it will be removed! Keep in mind that you have 30 days to get your account back if you decide to change your mind.
Deleting Your Badoo Account on Android/iOS
Although the PC steps were a little excessive, deleting an app is a much simpler approach.
Log into the Badoo app on your iOS or Android device to get started. From here, use the menu option in the bottom left corner of your profile to access your options. Go to account and select your email or phone number from this page. This will take you to a different page where you can remove your Badoo account.
You can log out of your account from this page, change your password using the “Forgot password?” link, and finally completely delete your account. After navigating through numerous advertisements, select the reason for deletion by clicking “Delete Account,” ignore the premium offer, and then confirm deletion of your account. A popup will appear to confirm this account deactivation, and then you’re done!
