Signing Up at Chispa

Chispa Registration
  • Free registration
  • Quick and easy sign-up
  • Accounts are verified via mobile number
  • Profiles can be linked to Facebook accounts
  • Very particular with user's location when signing up

Creating an account on Chispa is simple and easy. Although it has no email registration option, users can sign up via Facebook and SMS. The way the Facebook option works is to link your FB account with Chispa so that basic information and primary profile picture is automatically synced. These options can be changed later on.

The SMS option needs a valid phone number. The app sends a passphrase that members can use to log in on the app under a different device. This provides extra security and filters fake profiles on the app. Take note that Chispa is very particular with the user location. The app won't accept suspicious signups and logins and will immediately terminate said accounts.

In case users forget their passphrase, they can always email the app's customer service to retrieve it. 

Upon signing in, users' location is detected immediately. Profiles near or within a user's area are shown as potential matches. Users can now begin swiping through them to find their potential soulmate. 

Making Contact on Chispa

Chispa Contact
  • Swiping through profiles is the main mode of contacting
  • Chat with matched profiles
  • Use Boost to give profiles more visibility
  • A Super Chispa increases chances of being matched
  • Customize dating filters anytime
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone

Chispa is a new app that has a familiar swiping feature. Users swipe left or right on their potential matches. 

Messaging is free and can only be used once users get matches. 

The app is generally free but provides additional paid features to enhance the dating experience. Users can use 'Boost' to give their profiles more visibility and 'Super Chispa' for higher chances of getting matches. 

Users can customize their filter settings anytime they want to.

Chispa Profile Quality

Chispa Profile
  • Upload up to six photos
  • A clear headshot increases chances of being matched
  • Let others know about your roots or ethnicity
  • Profile completion is not mandatory but highly recommended
  • There are still reports of fake profiles
  • The profiles are not very detailed
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free

Since Chispa is mostly about visuals, profiles are made up of 90% photos and 10% information. With that ratio, users must take extra care in selecting the right photos that would best show off their good qualities.

Matches on Chispa are most of the time made through first impressions. A clear headshot can make or break a potential match.

Users can only upload six photos. These photos can be good conversation starters.

Other information is not needed but is still highly recommended to fill out. Information such as ethnicity, current job, education, birthday, and gender are being asked. Users can write a short introduction on their profiles. Despite the app's efforts to filter out fake profiles, member still report encountering suspicious accounts.

Chispa App

Chispa App
  • Available only in the United States, Canada, and few countries
  • Has an Android and iOS version
  • Free to download
  • Lightweight and visually pleasing app
  • Compatible with most mobile phones

Chispa is a no-nonsense, straightforward dating app where you can swipe through profiles and get matched with people near your area. It has a minimal yet still sleek design. It is trendy without being gaudy. Youthful without looking unorganized and cluttered. 

If we would have any gripe with the app, it is probably its limited availability in most countries. It is only accessible to so few countries such as the United States and Canada. Although, it is perhaps due to the fact that Chispa is still such a young app. Still, credit must be given where credit is due. Even if Chispa is only available in a few countries, it is compatible with both Android and iPhone devices. It is also lightweight and won't put a huge strain on your mobile phone.
