Gleeden Review 2020: Is Your Discreet Lover Here?
- user-friendly interface and eye-catching design;
- easy registration process;
- safe payment methods.
- low quality of profiles as reported by Gleeden members;
- absence of the USA in the list of countries during registration;
- unjustified prices.
How it works
Gleeden was launched in 2009 by a company of French women who stopped enjoying their family life and wanted to bring some novelty to it. However, they did not go to a family therapist with their partners, nor did they do anything to become more interesting to them. Instead, they decided to set up a community for people who are in the same situation and want to have discreet fun.
When you visit the Gleeden website for the first time, you are amazed by the image of a charming woman biting an apple. Next, you get impressed by the banner at the bottom saying that Gleeden was featured in Cosmopolitan, Elle, and other influencing media. On the left, you can see a quick sign-up form that you can fill out in less than a minute and join the website. If you scroll the homepage down, you’ll see a lot of information to get familiar with the service quickly. Major values and a few Gleeden reviews are also published on the homepage. Let’s sign up to see what Gleeden can offer to its users.
For registration, we used the form on the left. After we have filled out the spaces with username, our location, and sex, the form dropped down to ask us for more information. It looked like the following:
At this stage, you will also be informed that information regarding your sexual preferences is saved and processed on the website so that Gleeden could offer you their service. This warning is popping up due to the necessity to follow GDPR in Europe so you’ll need to accept it and confirm.
When you are finally logged in, you will see your personal account. The dashboard is convenient and simple, although the Gleeden design is a bit unusual. It features white font on a dark background.
The tabs at the button allow you to go to the search tool, your contact list, messages, list of virtual gifts, and credits purchases. On the right, there are three fields where you will see the activity of other users (whether they are online, the conversations with them, and their messages that you have not responded to yet). Everything is clear so far and does not require contacting Customer Support or searching for Youtube tutorials to get an idea of how it works. We can consider Gleeden as quite a decent dating website at this point.
As of 2020, Gleeden has almost reached 7 million users with more than 50% French people. The other part of members come from various European countries and a few from the rest of the world. The major age range is 30 to 55 there. The marital status of almost all users is seen on their profiles. Only a small part of profiles has no avatar that makes us wonder whether those pages are authentic. Still, Gleeden claims to moderate all accounts on their platform to eliminate any fake activity.
The ordinary profile of the Gleeden user looks like the following:
Here, you can see photos uploaded into private and public albums, a lot of personal information, the last time of the user’s activity, their psychological and intimate portraits to understand what kind of people they are. From here, you can contact them in different ways (private messaging, chat, or sending a virtual gift). You can also add the profile you like to your favorites or block it if you notice some undesired activity. However, the majority of these features are available on a prepaid basis only.
To evaluate the quality of the audience on Gleeden, we collected a few Gleeden reviews of its recent customers. Take a look at what they say about it:
As you can see, members reported the scam activity on Gleeden and did not like the service provided to them at all. Since a lot of testimonials on the web say that Gleeden does not help to find a partner for an affair, we advise you to think twice before registering on this website.
Let’s take a closer look at the membership plans that Gleeden offers. There are three packs of credits that you can buy to enjoy all features it offers:
- 25 credits for $14.59;
- 100 credits for $36.59;
- 400 credits for $94.89.
For this money, you will get the following features:
- ability to communicate with users you like;
- liking their profiles;
- sending virtual gifts;
- appearing on top of the search list.
To buy credits, you need to click on the ‘Credits’ button at the very top of your dashboard. After that, you will see the following page:
Please note that the prices are shown in Canadian dollars since we have chosen this country when we registered. Somehow, the USA appeared to be out of the list of countries that you can choose your location from.
Overall, the prices do not look too high on Gleeden, but taking into account the quality and quantity of real profiles here, we would not advise you to use this service.
Gleeden claims to take the user’s safety and privacy seriously since there are a lot of married people registered on the site. They promise to collect the personal information of their members only for processing through the service and making profiles appear in the search results. As a lot of information that you provide to them is considered as ‘sensitive’, you need to confirm that you agree to share it with Gleeden. It refers to such data as your sexual orientation, your preferences in sex and kind of relationship you are looking for, your race and location, etc.
As for payment security, you do not have to worry about your money and financial data. Gleeden offers paying via the credit card and PayPal account. All payment options are powered by PayPal, which is one of the most secure systems in the world.
