The Scoop: Wild promises its members the chance to swipe less and date more in a friendly and safe environment. This casual dating app has established itself as a trustworthy resource for singles, and it now boasts over 1 million members around the world. Every profile has been thoroughly vetted by AI technology and a staff member, and Wild promptly removes any profile exhibiting harmful, deceptive, or suspicious behavior.

Online daters can sometimes encounter a few unsavory characters during the search for love. Criminals can attempt to use dating sites as a hunting ground for vulnerable people, and that can lead to disappointed hopes and even, in some cases, financial loss.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), singles lose over $1 million a month to romance scams. “Scammers will go to great lengths to gain your interest and trust,” the report claimed. “They may take months to build what may feel like the romance of a lifetime and may even pretend to book flights to visit you, but never actually come.”

Hearing stories of deceptive online practices — from phishing scams to Nigerian scams — can leave singles feeling suspicious of the dating profiles they see and hesitant to trust people they’ve met online. That’s not acceptable to Wild, a free dating app that has taken up arms against the scammers and spammers of the world.

Wild is a casual dating app designed to build fast connections between local singles, and its team is very serious about keeping members safe.

Since its launch, Wild has endeavored to create a safe space where singles can let go of their inhibitions and engage in flirtatious conversations with people who are who they say they are. The app’s swiping and matching system may look familiar to veteran online daters, but its profile verification tools are certainly not run-of-the-mill.

Wild has made a concerted effort to authenticate new members and block fake profiles. Though taming the online dating scene is no easy feat, the Wild team has implemented a plan of attack that has already rid the database of hundreds of fake profiles.

“In order to protect our users and provide them a better, clean, and safe dating environment, we have applied AI to scan all profiles,” said Jasmine, a spokesperson for Wild Limited. “Everybody hates scammers, and we do not tolerate them on our app.”

Over 65% of Members Have Verified Their Photos

Wild has grown by leaps and bounds in the last year. It now boasts over 1 million users in its database and has facilitated hookups from Houston to Winnipeg. The fact that it’s free attracts many casual daters looking for a little no-strings-attached fun, but it can also attract scammers looking for an easy opportunity to deceive singles online. However, they won’t find it so easy to slip past Wild’s defenses.

Wild fosters a safe dating environment where sexually active singles can walk on the wild side.

Wild shields its members against the liars and criminals of the online world by maintaining a vigorous verification system. The app recently implemented an advanced AI program that scans all Wild profiles and blocks anyone exhibiting suspicious behavior, including uploading a stock photo or making inappropriate or false declarations. A member of the staff also manually checks new profiles to ensure everyone is behaving according to Wild’s code of conduct.

Wild prides itself on ridding the database of fake profiles and matching real people with sincere intentions. It offers users the chance to verify their photos by taking a quick selfie. The team will then check the photo and put a badge on the profile to show that they’re the real deal. So far, over 65% of members have taken Wild up on this option and posted photos of themselves that have been verified by the team.

Thanks to its extensive verification tools, Wild can offer its members greater security and peace of mind. The international database welcomes sexually active singles who aren’t afraid to show their true colors and be upfront about what they want.

Jasmine told us that user feedback has been incredibly positive since Wild instituted its proactive vetting system. “Our app is better and safer than before,” she said. “There are fewer scammers! The new AI now blocks hundreds of profiles that don’t meet our standards.”

A Small Team Learns From Competitors & Aims to be the Best

Every feature on Wild has been rigorously tested by a tight-knit and passionate team. This app isn’t a white-label, mass-produced dating app — it’s a labor of love built with care and attention to detail. Wild Limited created the hookup app to give singles a sexually charged outlet where they can chat and mingle for free. Today, singles of all orientations use the app to explore their options and find romance.

Free communication and matching tools put Wild users in the driver’s seat.

Over 10,000 users have reviewed Wild on Google Play and  iTunes, where it boasts a 4.1/5.0 star rating. “I just downloaded the new version, and now I can chat with my matches for free,” posted amber_d281 in 2017. “Their photo verification feature is great.”

“It is the safest and most trustworthy app I ever used,” said Lovetibewild in a five-star review. “It provides a great platform to meet like-minded people in a very fast way.”

The Wild team’s versatility has been its secret to success — even as the dating scene changes, the team can adapt and create new tools to meet its users needs. “We are a small team,” Jasmine told us. “Big companies like Tinder can have a hard time deciding which changes they should do, but, for a small team like us, we learn from all of our competitors to improve our products.”

In the last year, Wild has developed innovative verification tools that have taken the online dating industry by storm. Now singles can verify their photos by sending a selfie of themselves giving a thumbs-up sign. Some major dating companies have taken a page from the Wild playbook and used similar techniques in the battle against online romance scammers.

“We have impacted the whole dating industry,” Jasmine said. “More and more dating apps have copied our gesture verification to verify users and fight against scammers.”

Wild Reaches the Milestone of Over 1M Users Worldwide

Personal safety is a major concern among today’s online daters. These singles are putting themselves out there in hopes of finding an intimate relationship, and they deserve better than an inbox full of Nigerian princes and Russian models. A few bad apples shouldn’t spoil the online dating experience for everyone.

By cracking down on fake profiles, Wild has made its casual dating platform an all-around friendlier and safer place to mingle. The app now boasts over 1 million profiles, all of which have been verified as genuine.

In the last few years, Wild has embarked on a mission to clean up the online dating scene and shield members from deceptive and harmful scams. Its high-tech verification tools have already had a positive impact on the membership base, removing unsavory characters and helping sincere singles establish trust with one another more quickly online.

“We really hope that more dating apps can learn from our AI and verification features to build a safe dating environment,” Jasmine said. “We do not want to see any victims from any dating apps anymore.”
