When signing up, you will be asked to enter your first name, birthday, city, and gender. You will also be asked about what you are looking for on the website, whether friendship, dates, or chat. You will also be able to upload a photo at this point. You will also have to verify your identity by linking Badoo to other social media websites or entering a phone number. If you would rather not, your account will be unverified and your access will be limited. The main features of Badoo are People Nearby (see people in your area), Search (search for people in different areas), Encounters (click “Yes” or “No” on profiles), and Video Chat (allowing you to live chat with other members). You can also simply message other members.
