So, everything will be sorted out!
So, the HER lesbian dating app is characterized by the following types of profiles possible,

In any case, the pricing tariffs of HER are quite similar to the apps like OkCupid and Fuckr.

In any case, we would like to move on and discuss another section, which no less important. Yep, traditionally, we would touch upon the Pros and Cons of the app, since we have to know which of them prevails. Of course, as usually, we are eager to believe that cons would be less numerous than the pros. Of course, ideally, it is the situation, wherein there are no drawbacks at all! Let’s see!
Pros and Cons

However, we have some pros and cons assigned to the HER dating apps. Thus, traditionally, we will analyze the advantages of the app, and, then, we will consider the shortcomings possible. Hence, what we have found is as follows,

What is more, the balance of advantages and disadvantages is quite inevident, so we are now about to think that the app is quite a credible platform to date the people of the same views. So, why not try it all and get with your own vision?
Traditionally, we are to move to the security measures of the website and of the app, as well. Dissimilarly from the other dating apps being alike, the security of the HER app is built in quite an interesting manner, namely,
- you are encouraged and strongly recommended to upload no more than eight photos of yours to have at the same time in order to prevent the leakage of the extra information;
- the fact that you can link your social networks’ profiles to the HER profile will serve as an additional proof for the fact that no fake profiles are signed up;

- the ability to modify your real location is another great feature, which can let you be anonymous if you wish to;
- the payments are not accompanied with any hidden fees, which is quite a regular thing with some other dating services.
- all the possible dispute issues are supposed to be resolved in compliance with the Arbitration Agreement, which functions on the basis of the Federal Arbitration Act of the USA;

- all the other users (including the ones originating from the European Union) should direct their claims to the local courts and institutions, which deal with the cyber law.
Quality of Tools
Regardless of the fact that the tools are not that numerous, we are supposed to analyze them in any case. Thus, what is the quality of the tools provided for the users and their convenience?
- in spite of the fact that the search tool is not presented in its pure classical way, the search can be claimed to be substituted by the match-making system, which works nicely and takes into account the filters and data you provided in the profile of yours;
- the messaging system is easy and provides all the necessary features including the smiles;
- the process of registration is easy, and you will not have to waste much time to get in;
- the process of deleting your profile is also easy and will not take you much;
- the support team works almost immediately, so, in average, the response time may vary from 1 to 3 or 4 minutes;
- the payment system can be characterized by the easiness, transparency, and absence of the hidden fees.
As a result, we have nothing to do but to state that the quality of the tools is not that bad, and it can really bring the desired results. Mainly, this is because of the fact that the matching process is quite sensitive, and it can result in the best endeavors! So, dating with HER can be even more than just nice!
