When users choose to register, they are met with a screen where they have to input their name, gender, age and email address as well as a password. This all seems fairly normal when it comes to creating a mobile login or a member login. However, the registration process stops there because, after that, they are given the option to add a photo although that window can be closed, giving them instant access. There is no verification process and no security features that seem obvious and that should be a cause for alarm. On the whole, the registration process whether it is carried out on the main website or through the app is relatively easy but that is not always a good thing.
The site makes it possible to create a profile that consists of a wide range of details if all profile questions are answered. While users do not have to answer them all, they might feel compelled to do so and that means that they could spend a lot of time creating their dating profile.
Users profiles will contain a photo and that is something that users are encouraged to add. However, the entire profile section is huge and consists of a number of tabs that form part of the entire profile such as the main profile where they put in information about their appearance, their lifestyle and whether they have any pets. Here they are also requested to add information about their culture and values as well as add some text about themselves. The match section of the profile is where users can choose the kind of person they are looking for while there is a vast ‘Interests’ section that is filled with a huge amount of options. On the whole, the profile section has way too many profile questions and details.
From the moment users join this dating service, they are given a basic plan that provides them with basic free account features such as being able to search. However, if they are looking for something more and to get more from the service then they are going to need to upgrade to one of the premium plans that offer more than free features.
On offer are a Platinum and a Gold plan. The platinum plan offers users complete access to all the features they need and that means that they can get the most out of the service. However, what is disappointing is that the gold plan offers nowhere near the same amount of features as the platinum plan yet they are priced very close together.
To begin with, when it comes to users looking to search profiles, they can begin with the basic search, which is the first way of finding out how to search on FilipinoCupid.com. Here users can search for members based on their age and sex while they can search by city and age. Due to the large profile section, it means that the advanced search is equally as large and that means that users can really hone in on the singles they are looking for. They don't have the ability to search by username or they cannot search mobile but they can search by member number which is slightly different.
Once users have understood how to use FilipinoCupid.com search, they can then begin messaging people or even work out how to message someone on this service. The search is vast and could be considered to be too large as it can often lead to very few results being returned which could mean that members miss out on singles who could be the perfect match.
For those users who want to find out how to cancel FilipinoCupid.com subscription then they won’t have to look too far. They can switch off their profile in profile settings where they will be asked to input their password and their reason before their account is turned off. It is a fairly straight forward and simple process.
On the surface, this looks and behaves like a first-class dating site but from the registration process and lack of security is always a worry with any dating service. When you consider that this is one of the biggest services available, you would expect security to be a high priority. With this in mind, users should be careful in case they come across fake accounts or scammers. While the layout is good and navigation is easy, it still feels like a fairly average site as it does not have any premium features or that premium feel to it.
There is no doubt that this is a service that could work but it seems as though it tries too hard to impress with huge profiles and vast search criteria which could mean that it never delivers what it promises.
