The audience of the site

Founded in 1999, NoStringsAttached.com is among the oldest affair dating sites online. Although it's not as popular as rival platforms, the dating site still draws up to 50K visitors every month. It attracts daters of all ages, though, like on most hookup sites, the audience skews towards male users, who make up the majority of the dating pool.

One of the biggest draws of No Strings Attached is a varied functionality that works for cyber affairs and offline hookups. So the members interested in online dating flock to the webcam gallery, while those who are looking for local affairs tend to gravitate towards search and messaging functionality.

The first impression

At first glance, No Strings Attached looks much like another hookup app, Adult Friend Finder, which is no surprise, considering their aligned positioning. At the same time, NoStringsAttached.com has a pretty outdated feel to it, especially once you're past the signup page and into the personal dashboard and search interface. Some of the controls are far from intuitive, and navigation and search take some getting used to.

On the bright side, No Strings Attached comes with plenty of unique features that make up for its looks and steep learning curve. Besides, the prices are unbeatable compared to other casual dating sites, so we're more willing to forgive minor inconveniences.

Registration

Creating a No Strings Attached account takes just a few minutes. Think of a catchy username, input your email, and specify your gender and relationship status (single or attached). At this stage, you can also pick partner preferences, such as gender and relationship status.

nostringsattached registration process

Like most online dating sites for casual encounters, No Strings Attached makes it extremely easy to set up a profile and start your dating journey. All you need is to confirm your email. And this is your reminder to use a separate account for online dating to keep your personal and work emails safe and private.

Search filters on the "Find Members" tab of No Strings Attached work like you would expect. The basic filters include gender, age range, location, and relationship goals. However, you can also access advanced filters to specify hair and eye color, ethnicity, body type, and other preferences. But some of them, like languages spoken, seem a bit weird for a platform geared toward casual hookups. And the two most useful search features include username search and saved search, though the latter is only available with a premium membership.

Considering that dating site recommendations tend to be somewhat random regardless of your partner's preferences, using search filters is a must for getting suitable matches.

Communication

For people interested in casual encounters offline, No Strings Attached offers a comfortable live chat. The interface looks much like Outlook, with all the basic features, like filtering messages, creating drafts, bulk messaging, and stock responses.

For those who are into cyber affair dating, webcams offer an endless variety of options. Experienced models host regular public and private shows you can join at your leisure. The interface comes with chat capability, though you can also schedule personal calls with your favorite beauties.

Overall, the variety of communication options on NoStringsAttached should satisfy even the most discerning taste, especially if you don't mind a classic early-2000s look and feel.

The mobile application

Google Play and App Store aren't all that welcoming to hookup apps, so it's no wonder No Strings Attached isn't available on either. At best, you can try to use the mobile version of NoStringsAttached.com for messaging. Though the webcam show interface is a bit awkward on a small screen, it's passable on a tablet. Just like the full-sized version of the dating website, the mobile interface could use a facelift with an updated modern design.

What does a free version allow?

No Strings Attached is by no means a free dating service, but you can test the basic functionality without upgrading. For example, you can work on your profile, use basic search filters like age and location, and view public details of member profiles. Messaging isn't available, but you can like profiles and add your favorites to your personal hotlist to revisit and contact later.

While the freemium business model is common for dating sites, NoStringsAttached is pretty aggressive in promoting an upgrade. You will see constant reminders to become a VIP member until you cave in.

While free membership has its merits, the hookup dating website reserves the best features for premium members. These range from basic live chat and full profile access to watching live cam shows and initiating private calls. You also get to view accounts interested in your profile, change profile gender, and save advanced search parameters for later use.

Monthly premium membership rates vary depending on the duration of your plan:

  • 1 month – $29.95
  • 3 months – $59.95 ($19.98 per month)
  • 12 months – $149.95 ($12.50 per month)

At the same time, the No Strings Attached subscription does not cover a couple of extra features, such as highlighting your profile in search results, the "Open the Door" feature to let non-VIP members contact you first, as well as fan club membership and private shows access. Considering the added cost of these options, we suggest you start with an upgrade and test it for a few days before deciding if you need the extras.

Pros/Cons of paid subscription

  1. Full search results and profiles access is reserved for premium members
  2. Premium users access instant messaging, private photos, and member videos
  3. Webcam shows and public chat available to all premium users
  4. Saved searches facilitate dating experimentation

Scam and protection

Although NoStringsAttached.com relies solely on email verification, most dating profiles host enough photos and videos to convince us they are real. Still, like any online dating site, No Strings Attached isn't immune to fake profiles and scammers. You can easily recognize them by their blank-slate profiles and check their profile photos using reverse image search.

At the same time, you should always follow basic online security rules and avoid sharing sensitive personal information with strangers. Asking for money is not the only way for scammers to get you into trouble, as they can use your intimate photos and videos for blackmail. So be very selective with the materials you post online.

Customer support

If you need urgent help, you can contact customer support via the hotline. In the US, it operates 24/7, but international users should stick to office hours (Monday to Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. PST). The Billing Department is available via email, fax, or a dedicated hotline. Besides, there's a contact form you can use if your issue isn't urgent. The support team should get back to you within 24 hours.

As far as we can tell, canceling subscription auto-renewal is among the most common questions of NoStringsAttached.com users. Luckily, you can do it on the Billing History tab of the My Profile menu. Simply toggle the auto-renew option to "OFF," and you should see no further withdrawals as long as you cancel a couple of days before the upcoming transaction.

Summary

No Strings Attached is a relatively affordable hookup app for fans of all kinks and fetishes seeking cyber affairs and local booty calls. If you don't mind a somewhat dated design and are willing to make the most of search filters, you should have no shortage of explicit offers from singles and attached individuals.
