How To Delete Badoo Account

What Is Badoo?

Badoo is a dating-focused social network that allows users to:

  • Meet new people: You can browse profiles, like other users, and send messages to start conversations.

  • Find people with similar interests: Use built-in filters to search for potential matches based on age, location, interests, and more.

  • Go beyond likes and swipes: While Badoo has features like swiping profiles (similar to Tinder), it also lets you directly message profiles you're interested in, potentially fostering deeper connections.

  • Make friends or find relationships: Whether you're looking for casual encounters, friendships, or long-term commitments, Badoo caters to various possibilities.

There are two ways to delete your Badoo account: through the website or through the mobile app.

Deleting your Badoo account through the website:

  1. Log in to your Badoo account.

  2. Tap on the settings icon in the top right corner of the screen.

  3. Tap on "Account".

  5. Select a reason for deleting your account and tap "Continue".

Do Badoo Accounts Get Deleted?

Yes, Badoo accounts can be deleted manually by the user, but they also get deleted automatically under certain circumstances. Here's a breakdown:

Manual deletion:

  • You can initiate account deletion yourself through both the Badoo website and the mobile app.

  • The process involves selecting a reason for deletion, entering your password, and confirming your choice.

  • Once deleted, your profile and all associated data are permanently removed. However, Badoo may retain some anonymized data for statistical purposes.

Automatic deletion:

  • Inactivity: If you don't log in to your Badoo account for 90 days, it will be automatically deleted.

  • Community guideline violations: Badoo may delete accounts that violate their community guidelines, such as engaging in offensive behavior or spamming.


How Can I Delete My Badoo Account Without Logging In?

However, depending on your situation, there may be a couple of alternative options:

1. Account recovery:

  • If you simply forgot your login credentials, you can initiate the account recovery process through the Badoo website or app. You can try using your email address or phone number associated with the account to receive a password reset link.

2. Contact Badoo Support:

  • If you lost access to both your email and phone number linked to the account, or if you have another legitimate reason for not being able to log in, you can contact Badoo support. Explain your situation and provide them with any supporting information you can, such as your username or any previous payment receipts. They might be able to assist you with deleting the account through alternative means.

3. Wait for automatic deletion:

  • Remember, Badoo automatically deletes accounts that are inactive for 90 days. If you no longer wish to use Badoo and are willing to wait for 3 months, simply refrain from logging in, and your account will eventually be deleted automatically.


How Do I Delete My Badoo Account From My Desktop?

Here's how to delete your Badoo account from your desktop:

Steps:

  1. Open your web browser and navigate to Badoo's website: https://badoo.com/

  2. Log in to your Badoo account using your email address and password.

  3. Click on your profile picture in the top right corner of the screen.

  4. Select "Settings" from the drop-down menu.

  5. Scroll down to the bottom of the Account Settings page and click on "Delete Account".

  6. Select a reason for deleting your account and click "Continue".

  7. Enter your password and the characters you see in the second text box.

  8. Click "Delete Account".

Additional tips:

  • Make sure you are logged in to the correct Badoo account before proceeding.

  • If you have forgotten your password, you can click on "Forgot Password?" on the login page and follow the instructions to reset it.

  • When choosing a reason for deleting your account, you can be honest or select a generic option if you prefer.

  • Badoo may try to tempt you with offers to keep your account active. You can politely decline these offers and continue with the deletion process.


What Happens When You Delete Badoo Profile?

When you delete your Badoo profile, here's what happens:

Immediate effects:

  • Your profile becomes invisible: Other users can no longer see you on Badoo, including in searches, Encounters, and mutual connections.

  • Matches and conversations disappear: Any existing matches and conversations you had are no longer accessible.

  • Account data gets hidden: Your profile information, photos, messages, and connections are hidden from view.

Data retention:

  • Temporary storage: While inaccessible to users, Badoo may retain your data for a limited period for legal or administrative purposes. This typically involves anonymized or aggregated data used for analytics or improving the platform.

  • Permanent deletion: After a predetermined time (usually stated in Badoo's privacy policy), your data is permanently deleted from Badoo's servers. This ensures it's completely unrecoverable by either you or Badoo.

Reactivation window:

  • 30-day grace period: You have 30 days from deletion to reactivate your account by clicking the link in the confirmation email Badoo sends. After this grace period, reactivation is no longer possible.
