Frequently Asked Questions

 

Who is MatchFamilies for?


Families/couples (any gender), single parents with or without kids,

  • who moved to another place (e.g. city)

  • who moved internationally (expats, immigrants)

  • who would like to expand their social circle and meet other likeminded families to make friends (e.g. if your friends’ circle is being changed due to a newborn)

What do I need to create an account?


You need to indicate your first and last name, gender, email address and password. The App will then send you an email to verify your email address. You need to follow the link from that message to verify it. After that you can log into the App with your credentials, fill in your profile and start using the App. 

Is it a free app?


MatchFamilies is free to download and use. Here are the main features available free of charge: 

  • Explore suggested family profiles

  • Search for compatible families nearby

  • See who liked your profile

  • Chat with matched families and arrange meetups

Users can purchase the App to donate as well as get an Extended Access. The app costs 14,99 USD/16,99 EUR one off for lifelong use for the first 100 000 users. After that monthly and yearly fees will be introduced.

Here is what you get with the Extended Access:

  • Search for families/couples in other cities and countries in the Near Me section (as well as changing your current location in the “Settings” to do the same)

  • Active “Undo” button (if you swiped wrong and would like to get back to the previous profile)

  • No advertisements

How can my spouse/partner also use the app in parallel?


Your spouse can log into the App using your credentials: email address and password.
Moving forward we will introduce “Add a user” feature. 

What if I can’t decide whether to like or pass a profile?


You can save a profile and decide later (e.g. after you talk to your spouse). You can access saved profiles in the “Settings - Saved Profiles”. To save a profile please click “Save for Later” button on a family profile card. 

Is it a dating app?


No, it is a matchmaking service. Users can find other compatible families and chat with matched families, arrange a call or a meetup. 

In which countries and languages is this app available?

It is available worldwide but we are launching it in February 2021 in Europe only for the moment and starting from West Germany and the Netherlands. 
Currently the app is available in English language only. The plan is to launch it in German and Russian languages in April 2021. 

What if I don't see any profiles in the app?


It means that we haven't yet launched in your region or country. But don't delete your profile or the app and stay tuned as new users may register there anytime. 

What happens if I swipe left or right?


If you swipe right it means that you like a profile. Liked users will get a notification that you liked their profile and if they like you back that would mean it is a match. You or they can start chatting. 
If you swipe left it means that you pass (or skip) a profile. Users will not get any notifications if someone swipes left. Their profiles will keep to be shown in the “Near Me” section and if you change your mind later you can still like them. 

What if I noticed a suspicious profile?


Please click “Report User” button on a family profile card. We will then investigate whether this profile is in line with App’s requirements and if not we will delete it and block their email address. 

What does it mean if I received a message in the Chat?


It means that a user profile that you had liked before liked your user profile and started chatting with you. Only matched users can chat with each other. You cannot receive any messages from users that you didn’t like. 

What shall I do to find a compatible family/couple?


You can explore suggested family profiles in the “Explore” section of the App. You can access family profiles near you in the “Near Me” section, review and like them if you want. You can also use filters in the “Near Me” section to find compatible families/couples.

 

How many profiles can I like per day?


As many as you want.

How to start a conversation in the chat?


We would recommend you to start by introducing yourself and sharing what has sparked your interest in liking a family/couple.
