Wapa in Detail

Signing Up at Wapa

Wapa Homepage
  • Register using your mobile number
  • Email verification is not required
  • Photos require approval from their moderation team
  • Create a profile in less than a minute
  • You must be over 18 years old

Wapa registration is free. Before you can set up your account details, the site has a policy where you have to confirm that you are 18 and identify yourself as a female. It is also mandatory that you will not post any sexual photos.

Registration is quick because they don't require email verification. This is a downside because it means anyone (including men creating profiles to prey on women) can make an account. They could just easily lessen fake profiles if they required everyone to verify their emails. However, unverified members have limited access to features like chatting.

Uploading of photos upon registration is required and subject to verification. You have to follow the basic photo uploading criteria especially the no nude photo rule.

Editor's Conclusion

DatingScout.com Author Chris Pleines

Wapa is one of the first lesbian dating apps but it hasn't been able to maintain its status. Its simple interface and very few features don't amount to much when it comes to appealing to lesbians.
