Your personal safety is of the utmost importance. Please protect it. Here are some online dating safety tips to help you stay safe:
1. Don’t share your personal information (email, phone, SSN, place of work, or other identifying information) until you feel comfortable doing so. Be particularly wary if someone asks persistently for your personal info, and stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for this info or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing it. Never post personal contact info in your profile.
2. Never give away financial information to people you meet online, including credit card or bank information. Never send money to someone you meet online, especially by wire transfer.
3. If you decide to go on a date:
4. Trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable, unsafe, or threatened, stop communicating with the person. You have no obligation to continue communicating. There is no substitute for caution.
Please immediately report any suspicious activity, behavior, or content. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the report buttons that you’ll find on other users’ profiles.
