  • Majority of active members are from Mexico
  • Not much online users in Hong Kong
  • Male members dominate the app
  • Most users are between 25 to 44 years old
  • Most members keep their profile unverified

There are not many active users from the United States in the Helium dating app. With a lot of other popular dating apps in the country, most Americans seem to prefer to match first before chatting away. This doesn't seem like the case for Mexicans or Latinos – majority of active users come from Mexico, plus many online members in the United States are Latinos living in America.

Signing Up at Helium Dating

Helium Dating Registration
  • Quick registration process
  • No email verification required
  • Uploading profile photos is not required
  • You can disable location access but you won't get profile suggestions
  • Option to sign up as transman / transwoman

Signing up on Helium only takes 2 to 3 minutes. It's fairly a straightforward process where you need to provide your first name, age, gender, and the gender you want to meet on the app. You can sign up as a man, woman, transman, or transwoman. Likewise, you can also choose those four genders for the 'gender seeking' part. After providing those four details, you have to click the 'Begin' button. You will then be directed to an in-app captcha verification just to ensure that you are not a bot.

After the registration process, permission to access the device location will prompt which you need to enable or disable. Disabling the location access is permitted – however, you won't get any member suggestions on your list because the app won't be able to determine where you are. 

Also, uploading a profile photo is not required during the signup process. But, you cannot use the site's features without uploading one. You can, however, navigate the app to see all its feature offerings even without a profile photo.

Making Contact on Helium Dating

Helium Dating Contacting
  • You need to upload a profile picture to access contacting features
  • Suggested members to chat with depend on your location
  • Sending likes to other members' photos require a short message
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone
  • There is a chatroom

Helium does not require its users to match first to enable unlimited chatting unlike most dating apps. So, instead of the roulette-type matchmaking where you need to swipe right or left, the Helium dating app gives you a list of members nearby your location. You can choose which profiles interest you and send them a message right away.

If you're feeling adventurous, Helium has a special feature called "Helium Pop". If you shake your phone, you'll instantly be matched to chat with a random person. A chat window opens and you can choose whether to say hi or close the window – no worries!

Helium also has community chat groups based on nearby locations. You can join the group and chat with other active members for free. However, based from our experience, there are zero activity in most of these groups.

In terms of searching for profiles, you can do so by clicking the 'magnifying glass button'. This will take you to the search filter, wherein in Helium is all about searching by keywords. You have to put in a keyword and the app will filter users nearby that have that specific keyword on their profiles.

Helium Dating Profile Quality

Helium Dating Profile Verification
  • Upload at least 3 photos to activate your profile
  • Filters and editing tools available for your uploaded photos
  • You can verify your profile by uploading a verification photo
  • You are not required to fill in profile information
  • The profiles are poorly detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free

Member profiles of Helium dating app do not show much information about the member. In fact, the only details found on a profile are; age, height, career position, and whether they smoke or not. There is also a place where members can write and publish a short bio.

Profiles also include a section for emojis picked by members that supposedly represent them. Members can show their personality through these small digital icons.

The photos uploaded on your profile don't show up in a gallery. Instead, all the photos are shown in full view – members can scroll down to see all your uploaded photos. Members can like your picture and the like count will show up on the bottom left side of each photo.

At the very bottom of every profile is the 'My Tags' section. In this section, users can put keyword tags so their profiles will be more searchable in the 'Keyword Search' feature.

Lastly, you can verify your profile to increase trust among other members. You can do this by uploading a verification photo. The verification photo is a real-time selfie, where Helium instructs you about the pose you need to make. Once it has been approved by Helium customer service, your profile can earn a verified badge.

Helium Dating App

Helium Dating App
  • Free to download in Apple App Store and Google Play Store
  • Offers good usability
  • Enable location to find members around your area
  • You can enable mobile notifications

Helium is only available as a mobile app. You can download it from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store for free. The app doesn't take too much of your phone memory – it only requires about 36 MB for Android phones and 112 for iOS users.

Helium has low ratings in both app stores. Most reviews complain about having the same profile suggestions on their list everyday. This could be because there are really just not many users of the dating app.

Helium Dating Real Life Review

"Well, I didn't really get anything from this dating app. There were very few users active, or maybe it's just because I don't live in LA or like any big city. I don't know man. I'm better off using Tinder or Bumble I guess." - John, 30, Fortworth TX

When it comes to design, Helium dating app does not disappoint. Featuring basic colours of green, black and white, it boasts a minimalistic, sleek app design. Navigation is user-friendly too. You can find all its features as tabs at the bottom of the screen, and some floating on the bottom right of the screen.

The app was designed to appeal to millennial users, and that's why a huge chunk of its member base lies on the 25 to 35 years of age.

Even with Helium's free contacting features, signing up does not seem to be worth your time because there are very few active members here. Check out our Dating Apps instead.
