We did not have any previous information about Vanilla-Umbrella.com, or the operator. So, we decided to do some further research. The operator of this website is Vanilla Mobile Ltd, who have their headquarters in Kent, in the United Kingdom. It seems that this website, and the operator, have a solid reputation online. No one has accused them of being a scam.
The basics are free
The essential features of Vanilla-Umbrella.com come at no charge. It is free to sign up and to use the chatting, browsing, and other dating features. If users wish, they can purchase a premium membership subscription. This unlocks access to some additional features, but this is not a rip-off. For example, the upgraded membership allows users to see members’ activity status, use more search filters, and highlights these on the search page.
Users can also purchase “credits” for access to these extra features, though these credits can also be obtained for free, by inviting friends or watching ads.
Strictly regulated user base
What we found most interesting about Vanilla-Umbrella.com is the way they manually approve or reject members. To gain access to this site, users must either be invited by a current user, or send a direct request to the website moderators. So, the membership pool is kept relatively free from fake profiles. But this also means that the number of users is low. It can be difficult to get an invitation code, and hard to find local matches.
Based on the large number of positive user experiences, and reviews written about this application and website, it seems like a reliable place for connecting with genuine individuals.
Given that many users of kink or fetish websites may be concerned about the privacy of their activities, Vanilla-Umbrella.com may prove to be a good choice. They claim to have strict verification of members and to keep user information secure.
Simple and easy design
When checking out the mobile application, we enjoyed the straightforward design. The operator is upfront with users, and everything is clear. We also appreciated the overall appearance of the application.
