Can’t even login doesn’t give you a sign up option
Disabled account 1/5
So I bought the month premium for BLK and when I go back I have to login and when I do my account has been disabled. I have emailed support multiple times but no response. Fix your app
Not the Best 2/5
I keep being shown people WAY out of my range. And I don’t understand why we can only put 3 ideal preferences at a time. Like do you want us to find quality matches or not?
Worst app ever and reps are rude and nasty on phone 1/5
I used free version of this app and was getting 50 likes in a day or 2 . I Payed for premium monthly and no likes nothing almost like my account was hidden but no it’s not . Called to rectify situation as it made no sense 5 different reps no help . One guy said delete it and loose your money he don’t see nothing wrong with it on his end . So I’m guessing this is what I get to support this app. No matches after paid version and rude reps. I would give i -0 stars if I could .
Disappointed. It’s long but if you read I’d kind of feel better about my experience 1/5
I enjoyed this app a lot. I’m only giving it one star because a strange guy I met was able to permanently have my account disabled when I have done nothing wrong, just so that I couldn’t meet other people. BLK has not responded to my many emails and have left me out to dry regarding the situation. I know I sound desperate begging for an account. that’s because I kind of am. I was very antisocial and lacked confidence before downloading the app and have met some decent Guys on there. But BLK allowed this random man to have control over my social life. As a black women I don’t feel acknowledge and heard. But it’s only social media I guess. This is my final attempt at making this a big deal. as I grieve the friendships I could’ve had with the people who took time getting to know me.
this app is very frustrating. i created my account yesterday & was blocked within a few hours of using the app. i had no inappropriate pictures, i was not soliciting anything to anyone, & i was not being disrespectful towards anyone i matched with (i had only been messaging with a few individuals atp). i put in an appeal to get my account back & unblocked but i was just met with an automated message & no other customer support. i'm just frustrated with the whole situation, treat your users better BLK.
Customer Service 🤬 1/5
This app has the worst customer service ever. I got locked out of my account almost a full 4 days ago and have sent numerous messages to the Email provided to help me recover & not a single person has responded to me. Great app but terrible support when you need it.
Tinder is WAYYY BETTER 1/5
Terrible! Customer service is even worst! They love blocking accounts without giving you a reason why, even though their policy states they will tell you if you ask (which I did). They never email you back, and even when they ban your account, ALL of your personal data is still stored on the app so everyone can still see your profile.
Worse app to stream YouTube video 2/5
I was banned for viewing free music videos which I believe is unfair since anyone can view it on YouTube. This makes me not want to return to blk and I will share my review with the public. I was not selling nor advertising anything during my stream. So I believe if the BLK management team wants to retain users on their platform you should reconsider banning people for watching free music videos found on YouTube. There are plenty of other online platforms online and since I was banned I will reconsider even returning after this temporary ban. It’s absolutely uncalled for. I am a peaceful individual who has not violated the policy. I am very disappointed at the blk moderators to have banned me for something minor.
Horrible racist app 1/5
By Mohawk 585
If your white your account will be disabled. they won’t tell you why it’s disabled because of their privacy practices. They emailed me saying “they can’t tell me why my account is disabled because of privacy practices.” Also “Any account I make in the future will be disabled” worst app ever, I’ve reached out to them 5x they finally gave me this crap about where they can’t tell me what I did wrong, it’s been a couple weeks and they still can’t tell me. Horrible business, will fail soon, they continue responding to me by saying they won’t Tell me what I did to be disabled, reaching out to support is pointless, very racist app
Logged me out??? 1/5
It kicked me out…. Now I can’t login back in 🤬🤦🏾♂️
DONT BUY ELITE OR PREMIUM 1/5
As soon as I buy elite (and I’ve done it three times) BLK disables my account the day after I made the purchase and then refuses to refund me my money. This app is a scam.
Good But issues 3/5
It is a really good app, but lately my accounts keep getting disabled. Even emailing them wasn’t that much of a help.
By mistah kidd!
So I download the app and make a profile , matched with 1 person and our conversation was nice, but short, and after having my profile only a few hours it was disabled, with no explanation. Didn’t do anything for this to happen. Disappointed
It’s ok if it doesn’t ban u for no reason and no way to get another account 1/5
By elegant gown
Disabled my account for no reason when having 50+ matches and won’t let me create a new one
Wont work 1/5
I had this app and then deleted my account because I was trying to take a break from dating apps and I went to re download the app and it only is trying to have me sign in and it says account doesn’t exist which obviously I know that but it won’t let me re create a new account so I guess I just won’t be using this app?
Account problems 1/5
Y’all keep suspending my accounts for no reason at all , I just want an explanation of why ?
Doesn’t send notifications 3/5
This app has been ok so far but I don’t get notifications to tell me I have a message or new like. I log in every couple of days and guys think I’m ignoring them. Also, there are to many children on this app and when I say children I mean teenagers. The fact that I have reported them many times because some of them went to school with my children. They lied about their age and I don’t see how they were approved to be on this app. You can tell they are younger than 18 yrs old. Please do a better job on monitoring who signs up for this app.
Realest review 1/5
What a joke this app has become. First, I reviewed this app twice but somehow they never got posted. Secondly, everyone knows that it's about looks when it comes to online dating. I have no pictures on my profile. So tell me why is there 9 likes waiting for me when I logged back in? Nice Try! I won't be fooled. But when I paid for their subscription (regret this), I barely get likes in 3 weeks. And I didn't get all the perks that was part of subscription. Customer support isn't responsive until a week later. More than half of the profiles are inactive and I have seen profiles I already swiped left to plenty of times.
Just a bad experience. I'd say I'd improve the rating if they fix their app, get.rid of dead or even fake profiles, and provide better customer support but after seeing so many likes from my profile with no pix, the integrity of the app is compromised!!
I love this app 5/5
Account disabled 1/5
Originally I had left this app a five star review because I loved the app and was doing great on the app as far as matching and dating but this morning I checked my app and it said that my account was disabled at first I was frustrated and was going to email the owners of the app but then I came to the reviews and Saw that account disabled was a common occurrence
Keep Getting A Disabled Account 2/5
I was using BLK and all of sudden I was kicked out and got a “Account Disabled” message. I emailed customer service and still haven’t received any response. I never post unnecessary pictures so I’m trying to understand why was my account disabled.
Is It Worth The Money 1/5
I just downloaded the app and I found nice people and I also received ALOT of likes my first go round. I can’t see who even likes me which “should” be a FREE FEATURE to set BLK apart from the rest of the dating apps. So it’s basically winging it
Makes no sense 1/5
My account got disabled the same day I created and now I can’t make a new account or log back in. I emailed support and never got messaged back.
Why I’m the world do I have to pay to see who’s liked me?! Might as well go to tender.
So much fraud activity 1/5
My profile keeps changing with out my consent 1/5
By MT Quell🚫🧢
My profile keeps changing with out my account
Paid for the app can’t see pictures
The rules for conduct on live 1/5
The conduct rules need to be updated on live, there be strippers on poles in some live no problem but if I have on a crop top I’m banned for hours!!!
Subscription, deactivation 1/5
They literally deleted my account for no reason and on top of that they charge way too much just to meet people like I’m not about to pay no 20 something or more it should be 5 a month or maximum $10 but more no it’s crazy how these dating apps always want to take your money charging outrageous prices!!!
Just petty 2/5
By " Blake Hill🔬🔭 "
I have over 100 likes on this app I haven’t swipe left since I downloaded it . I have only like 7 matches , my question is why aren’t you showing the females that liked my profile in roatation , which I cannot see because I am not going to purchase it the app .Even though you guys are showing me females over 100 miles out of my range and my range is only 20 miles which tells me you’ve ran out of females to show me within my area but there are over 100 likes that I received and you would not tell throw them in rotation because i haven’t purchased and can’t see who liked me
Next Update 🤷🏽♂️ 4/5
This App is good in every way and the only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the ability to add videos to your media.
Disabled acct 1/5
To have my account disabled for no reason then the late email responses from their team not explaining anything as to why it was disabled in the first place just telling someone else will be in touch who has not been in touch yet. I have never had this happen real talk so for this app to be the first I’m beyond drove I won’t be using this app anymore.
I followed all guidelines to the app so that’s out the question.
I didn’t salt the app so other people would use it I mean use it Chispa and this app are just alike tbh I’ll jus use chispa.
😤 why have a desired distance if you won’t use It 3/5
The app is cool I actually like it but why even have a desired distance option and you literally do not use it ever or stay within the desired distance range🤔😩….. I even paid at one point just to see if it will change and it didn’t 🤦🏿♂️
Don’t waste your time 1/5
By King Ninth
Trust the latest reviews. Overpriced app that is latent with bugs fake profiles and the like. Also a victim of purchasing a subscription just to wake up to a disabled account with no response from there so-called out reach team. Fortunately I didn’t spend the absurd $30 price tag but I can’t imagine others have been so lucky.
Blocked page with no explanation 1/5
Had only had the app for 1 day before I knew it my my account was blocked I’ve contacted them with no response
Account disabled 1/5
For no reason they deleted my account. It’s been a week & no one has emailed me back. Lame.
Where’s the poly ppl at 4/5
By a concerned lit citizen
There’s a lot of scammers and dudes dressed up as women, and can y’all put a poly section
Profile locked 1/5
I’ve only been using this for a few weeks, it log me out and won’t let me sign in. I emailed support, I was told someone would reach out to me and they never did.
Disabled Account 1/5
Tried to log on 9.27.22 And it told me to that my account was disabled. I honestly do not know what happened. I only used this app to livestream and I was enjoying doing so while meeting new people. I never did anything inappropriate or such but I am assuming a hater reported some false info about me. I think you all should reach out to people before just automatically disabling them.
Expensive for what ? 2/5
I bought the package that lets me see who likes me or whatever and it’s been hours and I haven’t got 1 new like ? After spending 30 dollars to see ? Which !! I have had the app and it would show me at least 3 every hour. And now I have to pay for boots to be noticed ? Yeah no your done playing with my money .
Be careful they will steal your money! 1/5
I actually paid for this app! (Stupid on my part)
And they charged me $32 and then when I go on to use the app it’s says your account is disabled! DO NOT PAY FOR THIS SERVICE!! They will get your money!
DO NOT PAY FOR THIS APP 🚨🚨🚨🚨 1/5
The second I decided to buy the subscription for this app, all my swipe options were 300 miles away. Like…..every last one of them. Every since I paid, I get maybe 5 ppl close to me that I can swipe right/left one, after that…..300 miles away! Not only that…but they want you to purchase even more access after the initial subscription payment. This is definitely a scam if I’ve ever seen one. For the love of all things holy…..DO NOT PAY FOR THIS GARBAGE!!!!
We (BPM) need to do better… 1/5
Like most, I seek to promote BO business. Like many of us, I’m also seeking Black Love with a black man. It’s only natural that i tried BPM. The last subscription was actually my 4th attempt. I’ve used off and on for months during these periods. So I’m speaking from prolonged, quantitative, qualitative observations. This is a Substandard app and theres no excuse. Im not an expert in software/tech or in business law ect… So I’m not an expert on the nuances and limitations of app designing….and what best practices and other successful functions are present in other dating apps but possibly cant be replicated due to copyright or other. However, I’m certain that BPM can figure out how to improve this app to the standard of intuitiveness, functionality and quality as other competing apps …without breaking laws or being perceived to be a copycat. I’m black. My money is green, my desires and needs are human. My expectations are standards are no less than the clientele of competing dating app clients. We support our BO business and deserve better. Honestly i dont think black singles give a dang if an app promoting and facilitating black love, just so happens to look or function like other apps. No one cares. Trying to be authentic and avoiding redundancy shouldn’t compromise quality. We are all aware that some dating apps, whether based on price, marketing, expressed intent, portfolio of clientele ect… lend to the spectrum of dating site usage. Some are go to for hookups, some are relegated to what is considered apps for folks looking for love or ”serious” dating and “quality” singles. Umm, we have one app that is supposed to fulfill all of that for those specifically seeking Black Love. It’s not realistic…its just the way it is based on the lack of user profiles on OUR other Black centric dating apps. Even if we wanted to venture to other black apps, theres not enough user profiles to have a selection. Which is why its even more imperative that the app that is benefiting from the most money from their black clientele, use it to provide a quality product. Or perhaps we just need to start migrating our business and our money to build up apps that are doing things “right” or better. It’s a shame that the dynamic we see in society at large…black dollars being spent in white/other spaces because we have no or limited options…and those profiting simply have no motivation or sense of need to answer our needs. They know we will keep supporting them because we have no other choice. Shame on us for perpetuating this dynamic and the capitalism that exploits black dollars.
Do better. Trying to be coy and vague isn't as cute as you think. It appears sus and shady. Pictures of old Polaroids don't cut it. If you have a flip phone, borrow your cousins if it has a better camera. Take a picture outside of your bathroom or sitting in your car. Have someone take a pic of you playing basketball or at work or another hobby. Taking a picture with your watch as the photo subject is unbecoming, especially when you’re in a disheveled bathroom. Not everyone has a Mercedes its just a fact. And if you do, thats not a sentence or a quality or characteristic or a interest. It’s just a car next to a person.
Entrepreneur, owner at self, CEO of life…no, stop it. We don't know what that is. And don't play yourself thinking that its not a factor. You’re a handyman, your a warehouse person, you are a private contractor at trucking, you own a Dentistry office…
Those that think your pic is enough, that will only get you so far, a particular type of person or encounter. And if you're vague, expect a woman to follow up with curiosity and be able and willing to answer. If you have 2, 3, 6 kids…state that. No one wants to hear about it a week into a conversation, it’s bizarre. If you don’t have a MA or a PhD, stop saying so, just stop it. If you’re 55, stop pretending you can figure out how to enter your bday correctly or restart your profile. Also, stop posting pics of yourself in your 20’s unless you state why you are posting that pic. Unless we plan on having your children, we don't need to know what a potential 20 year old would look like. Umm have an accurate location. If you're willing to move anywhere, we want to know why and hope its because you have the means to do so, this is not a Craigslist add for roommates.
Telling women to stop this and that and be this or that …on your profile? Come now. Why would a certain quality of woman be intrigued by a man woman bashing. Run your own race. No need to bash other men or bash women to express who you are or what you are looking for.
If you're on a black dating app, please consider going elsewhere if you have specific melanin preferences that do not include the full spectrum of the black women on said site. Instead of wasting those characters to state you're looking for a light skinned or Latino woman… input your job title and educational background, your recent travels or favorite way to spend your weekends.
If youre truly interested have something to say. Avoid letting the app speak for you (another problem w the app) I’m not sure if the app or just fake profile “Likes” automatically produce a generic phrases such as “hello gorgeous”…. But if so, we see a handful of the same phrase daily. There’s no way of telling your words are from a bot or you and just generic and lacking.
Reply. Be ready to engage in adult conversation. Be available to speak on the phone. If you’re not in the local area (Ugg) but be willing and able to meet the demands and requirements of such a relationship. Have the time, freedom and funds to travel…especially if you're the one swiping on folks not in your area.
We’re confident, joyful, giving, deserving, nurturing, patient, beautiful, quality, healed or healing women seeking companionship …with standards.. be ready to meet and match and enhance ..add to. Not many want or need another project of responsibility or issue. Show up ready
Horrible and a RIP off 1/5
By single and upset
I just got on the app on 9/25 and my account is deactivated. I want my refund if this is the case. I’ve reached out and have yet to see a response, but based on the other reviews this is what the app does which seems like a money hustle. I really enjoyed the app within that one day. I want my account active again. I’ve violated nothing at all.
They disable my account for no reason
spam app 1/5
By Caution tape
I wake up a random morning to my account being disabled for no reason and with no warning. They give you a feature to contact them directly from the app which does not actually send any emails (tested it by trying to send to my personal email) had to message them directly myself. Explains why most accounts on this app are bots, this app disables your account, claims your pictures as “their property” then uses you as the face of a fresh bot
Black App Review 5/5
By Stupid-19 is Fake
I do enjoy this app.
It lacks a lot of features when you do make a match unfortunately.
A call or video chat feature would be so great.
Like most apps, there are a lot of obviously fake spam profiles and a verified account feature would destroy all of that nonsense.
Other than that, the app is good.
I find it interesting that a lot of the woman on here don’t have anything in the bio unique to them or what they want accept their social media accounts so I question their intentions a lot.
You looking for a date or some followers?
$30 just to see who viewed your profile🙄 y’all tripping fr.
