Unique Site Features While many dating sites claim to have stringent anti-spam protections in place, rarely do I feel actually protected by these measures, or get to see them in action. My experience with this site was a little different. When I first signed up, I breezed through the sign-up process, barely filling in any information as I just wanted to get in and check out the site. Unfortunately for me, my lack of provided information was immediately flagged by the site, and my account was promptly suspended for suspicious activity.
I was able to fix the situation with relative ease, and from that day forward, I felt truly safe and protected on this site.

The problem with Badoo though is that you will have to weed through a lot of low quality profiles in order to locate real people. The quality is just not as good as you will find on Latin American Cupid although the selection is a lot larger. Because of my issues with the quality of profiles on Badoo, I would not focus on it as a starting point for my dating search. The quality is not what it once was, but, because of its huge membership base more than 7 million registered users , I advise you to go ahead and give it a try.
