If you have read any of my other articles, you will know by now that I think paid surveys are a great way to make some extra money.
But it is important to find the right survey sites to get the most out of it and not waste your time.
Is Mobrog a scam survey sites, where you will waste your time, or is it a legit way to make some nice extra money?
I have tested the site thoroughly myself, and in this Mobrog review I will answer these questions and give you all the info you need to find out, if Mobrog is a site you want to sign up for pr stay away from.
What is Mobrog and what does the site offer?
Mobrog is a survey panel by the German based company Splendid Research GMBH, which was founded in 2008. Let me reveal right away that Mobrog is legit and has a trustworthy company behind, BUT that does not mean it is worth your time. So let’s go over what it has to offer, so you can see if it is for you or not.
Mobrog is a very simple survey site without any fancy elements and without too many distractions. By simple, I do not necessarily mean anything bad, but just that it only has a couple of ways to earn, which also makes it easy to navigate and use.
Mobrog is first of all a survey site, and this is basically all you can do here to earn. You basically just sign up and can then start taking paid surveys.
Once you have signed up, you will get an email every time there is an available survey. Be aware that you might not be able to participate in all the surveys you get an invitation for. Often you will not qualify, or the survey will be closed.
Personally, I have qualified for very few surveys on Mobrog compared to other survey sites I am a member of. The majority of the surveys I have been invited for, I have not been able to participate in. Some of them because I did not qualify, which is very normal not to do for some surveys, but also very often because the survey had been closed – also even though I in many cases have clicked the link only a few minutes after receiving the invitation.
It is important to mention that this might be very different in the country where you live, but this is my experience, and something that gives minuses in my review, as I do not like to waste my time. However, I have also qualified for surveys on Mobrog, and they are easy to take and user-friendly, so if you are just aware there might be many surveys you do not qualify for, then it can still be worth joining.
In addition to taking paid surveys, there is one other way to earn a bit of extra money on Mobrog. This is by inviting friends to join the platform.
You can only invite through email, and not by sharing a link, which is not so convenient. If a person you send the link to joins Mobrog, you will get around $1. So you have to have a lot of people on your email list that might be interested to make money from this, but just a little extra is of course also nice.
Be aware that you will only get the reward after the person you invite has completed 3 surveys. This to ensure the member is active, as Mobrog of course are not interested in paying people to invite a bunch of friends that just join but never take a survey.
One extra thing that you can sometimes participate in is a free contest. This is not something that you will be offered on the website itself, but something that is announced on the social media channels of Mobrog.
In my experiences, it is however very rare that there will be a competition like this, but still something to keep an eye on, if you want the chance to win a bit extra.
Distractions is not something that you can make money on, but just a point I want to make about Mobrog. As mentioned earlier, there are not a lot of distractions on Mobrog, as it only offers paid surveys.
In a way this is nice, but there is however one distraction that annoys me about Mobrog. There is a big ad that takes up a big part of the screen every time you login, or are on the page where you go to take a survey through the invitation links. Ads are not as such an issue for me, and many survey sites has these and it is a part of how they make money, which I have no problem with.
What annoys me about Mobrog is the way it is used. Probably because I many cases cannot take a survey, but is just taken to a page where it says that the survey is closed, and then there is a big ad. I am not saying this is done deliberately, but just that it annoys me. If I was very often offered surveys I could participate in, I would probably not care at all about the ads. But it is just annoying to constantly be taken to a page where it says I cannot take the survey and then just see an big ad.
Not really a big issue, and if you in your country have a lot of available surveys this does not really matter. Just something that I have been a bit annoyed with and therefore wanted to add it here:-)
Below you can see the official presentation of Mobrog, so you also can see how the site presents itself:
How do you get paid?
Every time you complete a survey, you will get paid in cash into your Mobrog account. You can then later have them cashed out to your PayPal or Skrill account.
Personally, I in general really like when survey sites offer payout through PayPal, so this is a really nice aspect of Mobrog, and my favorite payout method.
Also, you can request a payout already after you have earned around $7, which is a pretty low payout threshold compared to some other sites, which is great. So you do not have to take too many surveys, before you can get your money out.
Be aware that you will be paid out to the email address you have registered with. So if that is not the same email address you have registered with at PayPal or Skrill, you have to contact the Mobrog support and have this fixed. The best solution is to just from the start register with the email address you also use for Skrill and PayPal, depending on your preferred payout method.
How much money can you make?
On Mobrog’s website it says you can make up to $3 per survey and that surveys usually takes 5-10 minutes. I have not been able to qualify for enough surveys to calculate an average time per survey, but around 10 minutes sounds realistic for surveys.
When you are offered a survey, you will also see how much it pays. Mostly the rewards that I have been offered are between $1-$2 which is also fine, but just be aware that it will probably not be very often you will get the $3 surveys, and if you do, it might be a survey that takes longer than 10 minutes.
Even if you end up qualifying for a lot more surveys than I have, you should not expect to make a full-time income from Mobrog. It can give you a little extra money on the side, but compared to the top paying survey sites, where there are many more opportunities, it will not make you as much in my experience.
Can you use Mobrog on your mobile?
Yes you can. Mobrog has its own app you can download and take surveys through. You can however also just click the invitation links in the emails you receive and do the surveys on your phone this way. There might be some surveys that are not available on the phone however.
The app itself is very simple and easy to use, so it does not take any time to figure out how to use it. Basically you just open it, and then click a survey, if there are any available.
Who can join?
Mobrog is available more or less worldwide. It currently allows members from more than 70 countries and it is available in the local languages, which is great. You just have to be 18 years old to sign up, and you also have to have a PayPal or Skrill account, as these are the only ways you can get paid.
Be aware that you cannot do surveys when you are not in the country where you initially signed up. When you enter the platform, it first checks if you are in the country where you first registered. If this is not the case, you will not be able to participate, and you can also end up getting banned. So do not use Mobrog while traveling, if you decide to join the site.
What do other people say about Mobrog?
When possible, I also try to get other peoples’ experiences and opinions when doing a review. In this case, I have found Mobrog on Trustpilot. According to Trustpilot, Mobrog has really good ratings. Almost too good to be realistic and something seems a bit weird to me. The reviews are very short, and the way there are formulated is almost too positive compared to how people usually write about survey sites on Trustpilot.
Also, it seems strange that it has more than 10,000 ratings and review at this current moment. That is a lot of reviews for a site that is not bigger than Mobrog. One of the biggest and most popular survey sites SwagBucks that has more than 20 million users, in comparison only has around 5000 ratings, but these ratings and comments are longer and more in-depth.
I do not know exactly why there are so many ratings for Mobrog, but I have worked in online marketing for many years, and I know reviews like this can be affected by companies in different ways. There are also some negative, but the majority are very positive. It is of course nice, if so many people are so happy about the site, but I am just very surprised, if this is the case, when looking at what the site actually offers which is far less than many of the bigger survey sites, but it has better and far more ratings and reviews.
I agree that Mobrog is a nice site and easy to use, but something seems strange about these reviews on Trustpilot. You can take them into consideration when you decide to join or not, but I would not take them too much into consideration, as something is a bit off.
This is not to say Mobrog is not worth joining. It is just to say you should know that it is good in some ways, but also has some limitations you would not be aware of, if you just look at the Trustpilot ratings.
Can you get support?
If you want to write an email to Mobrog to get support, it is possible. It is a bit difficult to find the email address on the website, but it can be found. I have used it myself to write about a few questions I had. It took several days before I got an answer, but I did get a useful answer.
It looks like Mobrog is fairly active on Facebook. So if you need any support, it might be better to try to contact them there.
Let’s sum up the pros and cons of Mobrog to get a better overview, before you decide whether you want to join or not:
- Good payout methods.
- Low payout threshold.
- Easy to use.
- Many surveys are not available anyway.
- Annoying ads on the platform.
- Customer service is a bit slow.
- Does not offer a lot of opportunities compared to certain other sites.
First, let’s get it clear – Mobrog is NOT a scam. You can earn some extra money, and it is free to join, but I am not impressed with Mobrog. I had high hopes when I first joined, but it has not at all lived up to that. After having tested it for several months, I think it is a decent site to join as an extra site. But there are many survey sites that give better opportunities.
Maybe Mobrog is a better option in other parts of the world. But if you only want to join one or a few surveys sites, check out the list of the best sites in the link above. In my opinion, Mobrog can be worth joining, if you want to join many survey sites and have as many survey opportunities as possible. If you only have time to join a few sites, you should probably focus your time on other sites instead to get the most opportunities.

Mobrog is very easy to use and is available in many countries. Even though you can get paid through PayPal and the site has a low payout threshold, it is not one of my top recommended sites. It has decent opportunities in some countries, but if you only want to join a few survey sites, there are sites with better opportunities.
