If the “Superpower” feature is enabled, then the user can view the complete profile. The user is provided with three options, “yes”, “Maybe” and “No”, and can make a decision after scanning the profile. The next “encounter” loads automatically and the same procedure follows. If the user wants to be seen more on the “Encounters” game, then he can click on the “Get noticed” button, however, Badoo credits are required to purchase that feature.
