Whether you’re interested in regular dating or looking to explore your kinky side, Just Be Wild promises to have it all. Of course, whether or not a dating app’s claims are legit always takes some digging. That’s exactly what this Just Be Wild review will be exploring.
We like to do the legwork on some of the bigger names in dating apps and websites. It means we can evaluate them all equally and save you the time trying them for yourself. That means more time going on dates and less time trying potentially sketchy apps.
Let’s take a look at what I found on my Just Be Wild review, shall we?
As always, I’ll start with a look at the fundamentals compared to the well-known Adult FriendFinder.
Immediately this gives you an idea of my experience with JustBeWild.com. Keep this in mind as you read through some of the finer details below.

In short, my suggestion is to look elsewhere else for an effective dating app. By all means, it does appear to be legitimate, it just lacks in a few very important areas.
While using the app it became pretty clear that there weren’t many real people using it and I also found that the users here weren’t the type that I’d be looking to match with. Having used other apps that have both a ton of users and attractive women (like Adult FriendFinder) Be Wild really didn’t come off well at all.
We all know that dating is partially a numbers game, especially online, so a site that can’t give you that isn’t going to work out well for most guys.
I did find the sign-up process a little frustrating on a desktop. It may just be optimized for a mobile device but several of the screens rendered funny or just weren’t intuitive. But otherwise, the user experience was excellent. At the end of the day though, an intuitive interface doesn’t help when you’ve got zero matches even when you pay for the membership.
When you’re spending your hard-earned money and limited free time you need to be using an option that makes it fast an easy for everyone to use it. Otherwise, you’re going to miss out on a lot of potential opportunities.
There aren’t a ton of great options out there but there are some that consistently help guys actually find hookups. Instead of JustBeWild.com, why not try a more reliable site like Adult FriendFinder’s free trial?
In our experience, AFF has consistently delivered the best results for most guys. It has 90,000,000 active users who are all looking for hookups and with that many people, you’ll have plenty of options. The great thing about Adult FriendFinder is that it’s an established site that has consistently delivered for years.
You won’t have to wait for weeks just to find one single person who’ll respond to your messages.
In our Just Be Wild review, we’d like to give you as much info about the site to help you decide if it’s one you’d like to try out. While it’s not a site we’d honestly recommend, the site does have a few things going for it.
Below are the pros and cons of using JustBeWild.com:
The few profiles I came across on the site did appear to be real. There were no stock photos, strange links or awkward bios that would suggest anything untoward.
At no point did I feel as though I might have been looking at something fake. Honestly, though, that may be because scammers put their attention into apps with a broader user base.
As you can see from this example, just to see a reasonable number of profiles I had to expand my reach. By the end, my criteria was set to anyone 18 to 80 years old within 200 miles of me.
Online dating is great and all but 200 miles might be a bit far to travel for it.
A growing trend in dating apps, you have the option for photo verification. You take a selfie in a specific pose and their team will verify that you’re the same person in your photos.
While it’s not required, it does seem to be a common theme across the site. It’s also a helpful trust signal for your matches — confirming you’re a real person!
Taking the photo took a few seconds and the verification process took around 10 minutes. Very quick and painless, just make sure your selfie is clear and in good lighting.
As I touched on earlier, this app really is well designed. The interface is clean and very intuitive. I managed to find everything I was looking for without any real hassle.
My only complaint is that it’s not obvious what each of the tabs at the bottom are without tapping them. Not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.
Besides that, the design is everything you’d expect to see from a popular dating app.
Even though this is such an important part of any dating app review, it’s not something I can cover in detail here.
The fact of the matter is, after a whole month of using JustBeWild.com, I still managed a total of zero matches. Not a single one.
I can’t tell you what the chat interface is like because this is the closest I can get:
Given how well the rest of the app is built, I expect the chat interface will be clean and easy to use as well. I guess that’s just something I’ll never get to try for myself.
On the upside, at least I didn’t receive any spam messages, right?
One thing that made this Just Be Wild review very easy is their pricing model. They adopted the same model as most major dating apps which is to say you can use it completely free.
Sure, you can pay for the VIP membership and get added functionality (see below) but by no means is it a requirement.
With a free account you can:
With all of these core functions available to you, that’s everything you need to set up a date. The only thing you might find limiting is that you’re only given a certain number of free “likes” per day.
I couldn’t tell you what that max number is because I never saw enough profiles at once to hit it. A quick Google search offers no helpful info either.
Another nice thing about this app is that they don’t show any third-party ads. It will remind you of the VIP membership every now and then, which is to be expected.
Beyond that though, that membership appears to be their entire pricing model which I fully support.
When I reached that stage of this Just Be Wild review, I found the pricing quite interesting.
They have the typical subscription model which gives you a bunch of added features listed below. What I found clever is they also give you the opportunity to earn credits, which you can exchange for free membership.
If you choose to pay for the VIP membership, it’s either $9.25 per week or $6.67 per week if you commit to three months at a time.
Alternatively, you can spend 350 credits to get a free week of VIP membership.
Earning those credits is very smart on their behalf and can work in your favor too.
As you can see below, you can perform tasks that ultimately work to make the app more successful. In return, they give you (temporarily) free VIP access.
You can earn these credits by doing the following:
By getting yourself email and photo verified and being a regular user, these credits can add up pretty quickly.
After the initial profile setup, you can only really get free membership about once per month. That assumes you’re uploading private photos every now and then as well. Otherwise, you’ll get free access once every 44 days you log in.
Either way, free is free and hopefully, this initiative will help fix the issue with their limited user base.
What you get with VIP membership
The added features it gives you are pretty standard fare. By no means do you need any of these to use the app successfully but they’re nice to have.
To wrap up this Just Be Wild review we’re going to look at some of the most frequently asked questions.
Below are a list of the questions we see coming up over and over again. Need to know something else about the JustBeWild.com? Get in touch! We’d love to hear from you and maybe even update the article so everyone else can see it too.
Just Be Wild is a dating app for Android and iOS. As the name might suggest, this app aims to facilitate dating, hookups, group encounters and more.
Built much like the major dating apps, you’re presented with profiles that you can either like or dislike. If you both like each other, you’re now a match and can chat to each other within the app.
Creating an account can be done either through Facebook or your phone number. While both options appear to work just fine, you will find the sign-up process a little frustrating.
Admittedly I did wonder if this app was going to be legit based on the sign-up experience but it turned out to be okay.
This one is a topic in itself. Rather than listing a bunch of alternatives here, go ahead and check out our hookup apps review!
You can like/dislike, match with and chat to women all with a free account on Just Be Wild. You’re limited in the number of likes per day unless you upgrade to the VIP membership though.
Note that you can also accumulate ‘credits’ which can be exchanged for a free week of VIP membership. This means you can test the paid features for yourself without spending a cent.
Whether you’re on Android or iOS, you have to cancel the subscription from within your Google/Apple account.
Steps for each are as follows:
Deleting your Just Be Wild account is surprisingly simple:
While you can use the app for free, there’s also a paid ‘VIP Membership’ option. This membership gives you access to a bunch of additional perks that you might enjoy.
This VIP membership costs $9.25 per week if you sign up weekly. For a 3 month subscription, the amount drops to just $6.67 per week.
While the user base is lacking, the app does appear to be 100% legitimate.
At no point did I feel as though I’d come across a fraudulent profile and there were no ads or strange messages to speak of.
Any talk of a Just Be Wild scam online is wrong. In my experience with the app, there’s nothing at all that suggests it’s a scam.
Once you’ve matched with someone nearby, you can tap the Messages tab at the bottom to chat.
Like most dating apps, you can communicate with your matches from within the app for free.
Just Be Wild uses a very similar system to the likes of Tinder and Bumble. While you can’t ‘search’ for women nearby, you can set your distance and age range.
From there, you’ll be presented with a host of profiles where you’ll either tap ‘Like’ or ‘Dislike’. If you like someone and she liked you too, you’re now a match.
From this point, you can start chatting and see where things take you from there!
