Is Mobrog a Scam? Is It Worth Your Time?
If you are looking to make money online taking paid surveys, Mobrog is one of your options. But is this site any good? Or is Mobrog a scam that is going to be a waste of your time and have you slaving for next to nothing?
Generally, online paid surveys are not all that great. But I wanted to give Mobrog a chance and see if its any good. So I reviewed this survey site and in this review I’ll be going over what you need to know before you decide if this is a good choice for you or not.
Mobrog Survey Review

Mobrog is a paid survey site operated by the market research company SPLENDID RESEARCH GmbH. Any one can sign up through the mobrog.com website or download the app for free and start earning money taking online surveys.
Big companies pay SPLENDID RESEARCH GmbH money to conduct market research and get consumer opinions. This is where the money comes from and you get paid a small percentage of this money as incentive to take the surveys, which are used to gather your opinions.
How It Works
The first step would be to sign up which is free to do. But just hold off on this because you are going to want to read this review first. Signing up is simple and just requires your name, email, and some basic things like that. You can sign up on the website or you can download the Mobrog App.
After signing up you will be given a survey that you won’t get paid anything for. This is like a profile type survey so that Mobrog can get to know you better and then more appropriately match you with surveys that are relevant to you in the future. This survey will ask you about your family, income, job, activities, home, etc.
After completing this initial survey you will be able to take surveys and actually get paid for them. However, there probably won’t be any available to you right away. Mobrog has to find ones to match you with.
Once you do get a survey available to you, you can then participate in it and make money.
How Much Money Can You Make?
The answer is not much. This has become the norm for paid survey sites like this. It is very cheap and easy for them to get people’s opinions online so they have no real need to pay people any more than they do.
One thing I like about Mobrog is that they don’t inflate the earning potential here. They tell you like it really is. They tell you that they pay on average anywhere from $0.50 to $3.00 per survey. These numbers are actually true.
You can expect these surveys to take anywhere from 10 – 25 minutes to complete generally, although you will have some outliers that are shorter or longer. And generally the longer surveys will be the ones paying more.
How You Get Paid
Once you have racked up $4 in your account you are able to cash out via PayPal. This is a very low cash out threshold compared to other paid survey sites and that is a good thing. Also, PayPal is a great and each way to cash out so that is another plus.
The Main Problems I Found
The main problem that I found with Mobrog is their overall lack of available surveys. It seems that there just isn’t all that much opportunity on this site. They seem to be a rather small market research company and because of this they just don’t offer as much.
It is common for you to go days and even a week without getting any surveys. And this is a complaint that I found to be pretty common when I was searching around online to see what other people were saying about it.
Another big issue is qualifying. It is not uncommon to take a survey, make it half way through it or even entirely through it only to find that you don’t qualify or that it was “unsuccessful”, which means that you don’t get paid for your time.
I understand that they do need to match the surveys up with the appropriate people and that you might not qualify for each one but I think they could do a better job at pre-screening you for the surveys before they make them available to you.
Some Other Complaints
- Low Pay – This is just the way it is nowadays when it comes to online surveys. Pay is low and it equals out to below minimum wage when you think about all the wasted time trying to qualify for surveys etc.
- Tech Issues – There are a lot of complaints about the app and the website having tech issues of all sorts, most of them from not being login issues. This happens but it seems to be rather high with Morbrog.
Final Thoughts & What I Recommend
Honestly I’m not too big of a fan of paid survey sites. They just aren’t worth the time you put into them in my opinion. I was hoping that Mobrog would be better than this but its really not. It pays little just like the industry standard and it has a major lack of opportunity.
If you really want to make little money taking surveys online then I would recommend SwagBucks over Mobrog. SwagBucks is a much larger site and they offer a heck of a lot more ways to earn money and overall have a lot more opportunity.
But like I said, I don’t really recommend any paid survey site. They just don’t pay much at all and there are better ways to make money online with your spare time.
I make a living working online for myself and I sure as heck am not going around taking paid surveys. I have written a post on what I do to make money online, how it all works, and how others can do the same. You can click the link below to read about it.
