It’s an extremely fast website. The layout reflects what you expect to see on a dating website. That’s why we have to tell that the user interface is intuitive, and the navigation bar makes the site very easy to use.

Wild offers dedicated apps for both iOS and Android, which you can download at the App Store and Play Store. The apps are regularly updated and support both the newest and older versions of iOS and Android. We were surprised by how fast they worked even on earlier models of iPhone and Android phones.

The Platform is a New but Promising One

While the platform has been around for just a couple of years, it’s user database is considerably large. There are almost 1 million Wild users. Although the app is international, most of the users are from the US.

The platform wants to provide the ultimate dating and hookup experience to its users. To do it, the developers introduced the Photo Verification feature. Currently, there are over 400,000 members with verified photos.

The registration process is straightforward, and you can complete it on the web portal or in the mobile app. You have the option to create an account by using your Facebook account or mobile phone number. Wild is clear about not using your Facebook data nor posting anything on your behalf on Facebook.

The app functionality is excellent. The search comes with a bunch of useful features. You can specify your interest, age range, distance, location, and use many other filters to narrow down your search.

Once you start looking for a fling, the app will show you the pics of people you might be interested in. To go to a new picture, you can tap X or Heart.

Tapping the X will skip the profile while Heart is considered as a Like. If the liked person likes you back, you have a match and can engage in online real-time chat, which is, by the way, completely free. However, members with free membership have a limit on how many profiles they can like at a time.

The Free Version is Decent, but You’ll Want to Go Premium

While the free membership allows you to play with the app and try meeting someone to have a fling with, the premium one increases your chances to hook up with people. The premium membership includes advanced features such as the ability to change your location and use new search filters.

Other features that are available only to premium users include unlimited likes, ability to see who liked your profile, undo your last choice, boost profile visibility, choose who can view your profile.

We also have to point out Wild security measures. While apps for iOS and Android, user database, and website are completely secure thanks to encryption and security protocols, there is the issue with fake profiles. Especially the ones with unverified photos.

Wild Profile Creation: You Can Do It With Your Eyes Closed

There are two ways to register a profile with Wild. Both of them are extremely easy. You can do it by heading to the official website Justbewild.com and clicking on Login in the menu in the top section of your screen.

It will bring a popup where you will be able to choose to either log in with your Facebook account or log in with your Phone number.

Another way to register an account is to do it on your smartphone or tablet. If you have an iPhone or iPad, go to the App Store and search for the Wild app. Android users can search for it on the Play Store.

If you have trouble finding the app, you have the direct download links on the Wild homepage. Once you download and install the app, you can sign up by using your phone number or Facebook account.

If you choose to go register with your Facebook account, you should know that Wild will access your name, profile picture, and email address. In either case, Wild will keep your private data secure and protected.

Customize Your Profile To Appear More Attractive

Wild is not so much different than other hookup apps and adult dating websites. The platform creators know the value of a great-looking profile that provides sufficient information to other members looking for a fling.

There are plenty of profile customization options to help you stand out from the crows. Apart from the standard profile photo, short bio, or profile description, you can also add private images, interests, intentions, height, age, body type, and ethnicity.

Complete profiles will always have an advantage over sloppy profiles. People often forget that the information they put in their online hookup profile is not going to end up being used by members of that platform.

Match and search algorithms also use this information to match you to the right people and increase your chances of getting a hookup or a fling.

The more customization options, the better. Don’t forget to leverage this opportunity! Enter as much information as you can, and you will increase your chances of going out on a real date.

Wild User Experience Caters to the Needs of Modern People

For a hookup app to succeed in the online dating industry and make a name for itself today, it has to offer people convenient and effortless means to get in contact with one another.

Well, Wild does it perfectly. Even though the hookup platform has a user database of several hundred thousand people, you can’t just hop on and take a look at their profiles.

Wild is a match-based hookup app. Before you can initiate a conversation with a potential fling, you have to like each other’s profiles mutually. It doesn’t get any easier than this.

All you have to do is open up the app, and start Skipping (pres X) or Liking (press Heart). The moment there is a mutual match, the app will notify you, and you can start exchanging messages.

You can manually set up which people you want to see in your potential matches via the search function. Search allows you to apply 11 filters and really narrow down your search. The search filters you have access to include:

  • Your interest
  • Age range
  • Location
  • Distance
  • Verified photo only
  • Last online
  • Intention
  • Interests
  • Ethnicity
  • Body type
  • Height

Sharing private hot photos is also streamlined. You can upload them to your profile, and keep them safe there. None but your matches will be able to see your private photos.

Free vs. Premium Wild Membership

Wild advertises as a free hookup app. But this is only a part of the truth. Chatting is entirely free, and there is no limit when it comes to the number of messages you can send.

There is a slight problem with how many people you can like. Free membership comes with this limit, which significantly reduces your chances of getting a match and ending up outside on an actual date.

Premium has so much more to offer than free membership. Premium members can change their location and look for possible matches elsewhere. They also have the convenience to see in advance who liked their profile and thus have the ability to choose who to like back and get an instant match and conversation.

Premium membership lifts the limit on how many profiles a member can like. There is also a great perk that allows premium members to rewind their last choice and rectify a Skip or Like mistake.

The advanced search filters can also come in handy. Not to mention the settings that allow members with a premium membership to control who can see their profiles.

Finally, premium membership will boost your profile and help you appear in more searches. The free trials are accessible to anyone who wants to experience the Wild premium ride. It lasts for three days, which is more than enough to decide whether to pay for it or continue using the app for free.

For more details about the premium membership perks, you can open your app and tap on the Upgrade button.

Wild Fraudulence Prevention and Privacy

One of our primary concerns when reviewing adult dating websites and hookup apps are user security and privacy.

We have found out that Wild uses state of the art security and encryption protocols to keep your private data away from prying eyes of cybercriminals. Whatever it is that you share on this platform, you can rest assured that it will remain safe on Wild servers.

When it comes to fake profiles, we have to say that Wild did an excellent job of reducing their number. The platform features a Photo Verification feature that allows all members to verify their profile photo and increase the authenticity of their profiles.

Every member has to upload a picture in a specific pose, ensure that their face can be easily seen and that they are alone in the photo. Plus, there is an official Online Safety guide on Wild official website.

We have found out that 65% of the profiles are verified.

Great Hookup App for People on the Go

Wild is an excellent choice for people on the go who prefer looking for hookup opportunities whenever they have a minute of spare time.

Wild is accessible to both major mobile platforms and is quite popular in the world’s metropolises, including New York, Los Angeles, London, Houston, Toronto, Chicago, Melbourne, Las Vegas, Sydney, and many others.

The ability to unlock all premium features for just a month without having to commit to recruiting payment plan is excellent.

You can enjoy all the perks the Wild has to offer and explore numerous hookup opportunities in the area you are currently in. The option to change your location is quite useful to travelers who want to get a date in advance.

Avoid It if You are Impatient and Don’t Want to Invest Into a Premium Membership

People who don’t have the luxury of time and want to get a hookup as soon as possible often opt for the most popular hookup on the market. Don’t get us wrong – the Wild hookup app is sufficiently popular to offer you great many fling opportunities wherever you are.

The thing is that if you don’t want to spend cash, you will probably have to wait a little bit longer before you find a match.

Why? Because there is a limit to how many profiles you can like. If you reach this limit and don’t get a match, it’s game over for you. There is a free 3-day trial that you can leverage once on your account before having to commit to a premium membership.

Wild Review: The Final Verdict

Wild is a popular match-based hookup app that comes with plenty of useful features. The things that we liked best about it is a vast user database, unlimited free messages, profile verification (and ability to see that a profile is verified), support for Android and iOS platforms, and the ease of use.

Even though the premium membership features increase your chances of finding a date, free membership can also get you there. The 3-days free trial is more than enough to help you assess this app and see whether you want to opt for the premium membership or continue your hunt for NSA opportunities for free.
