Lovoo is next to Tinder the most popular and well-known dating sites on the Internet. In the test like the portal from Dresden with a simple registration and easy operation. However, it quickly becomes clear that on the way to great love you first have to find something completely different.
One of the greats in online dating comes from Germany, more specifically from Dresden. The speech is of course Lovoo. The platform has been available since 2012 – now even in 15 languages. According to Lovoo, there are around 65 million members around the world who exchange about 370 million messages each month. In addition to StudiVZ and Xing, Lovoo is probably one of the most successful German start-ups on the internet. But in June 2016, the success story got cracks. The prosecutor Dresden initiated a preliminary investigation into fraud against Lovoo. In the course of a raid, the dating platform was even taken off the grid for a short time.
The allegation: Lovoo should have moved users with fake profiles to complete a premium paid membership. Through a sophisticated system of fake profiles Lovoo is said to have generated just under 1.2 million euros between June 2013 and July 2014. The procedure has since been discontinued. In the course of which, Lovoo (lovoodatingsite.com/de/) undertook, inter alia, to compensate betrayed users and delete abusive photos used for fake profiles on request.
The portal then ventured a fresh start – since September 2017 Lovoo belongs to the US company “The Meet Group” and hopes to regain the lost trust of customers. But is it worth registering with the Tinder competitor?
Lovoo in the test: registration and registration
At least this is done quickly. All you need to know is a mailing address, place of residence, gender and birthday, and you’re one of more than 60 million Lovoo members worldwide. The data transfer takes place via an encrypted HTTPS connection. Alternatively, Lovooo also allows you to log in and register with your Facebook login details.
Of course it is advisable to edit your profile in the episode and, for example, to expand information such as “smoker / nonsmoker”, a profile picture or a short description text.
