Fika targets people proficient in English from 23+ who are looking for real, meaningful connections and have set up quality profiles on Fika. A "quality profile" typically means photos in high quality that show who the member is, appropriate answers to Question Prompts and informative bios. Each membership approval is subject to individual profile screening and our team is responsible for verifying all members. Waiting time differs depending on quality of member profile and how many people who are on the waiting list. Fika has as of February 2024 over 500,000 verified members that are on the waiting list due not yet having updated their profiles according to Fika's new criteria of >3 photos, answered to >3 Prompts, and being proficient in English.
To prioritize the safety of our users, and provide an optimal user experience, we require users to get verified. This is done through AI face verification, and in some cases photo verification. This verification is crucial to maintaining the integrity of the Fika network and to foster a positive environment for everyone.
When asked for photo verification, the submitted photo undergoes a review process by our operators to make sure that it matches with your profile photo, and thus confirm your identity. It's important to note that verification photos are not added to your profile. We retain the scans for future verification purposes and record-keeping.
When you subscribe to our packages, you provide us with information related to the purchases you make. However, since the purchases are processes through Apple App Store and Google Play Store, we do not store your financial information such as credit or debit card numbers.
This information helps us identify your physical location and we use it to personalize the app and make it easier for you to interact with other Users. Any other time during the app, we don’t use the location at all — you will be able to chat freely, edit your profile and use our other features that will come out in the future.
