Is online dating safe?


Is it safe to meet people online and/ or join dating services and adult classifieds/ personals services?

There are thousands of people hooking up to the Internet for the first time every day! The need for online privacy is important and so is where you visit and what type of web site you give your personal information to in exchange for products and services. reviews online singles services and posts those that meet a minimum standard of having an easily found privacy information page, among other attributes. This will help you to know what happens to the information you provide to the online service when you sign up as a member. Even services that are free take your information and it's important for you to be aware what they do with it.

Online dating, generally speaking, is very safe as long as you follow some basic steps to protect yourself:

  1. Know what happens to your personal and credit information before you click the "Submit" button.
  2. Know who to contact if you have questions (and how to contact them) about the online service you are considering joining.
  3. Do not share passwords and other private information with other members under any circumstances. Be aware that staff should never have to ask you for your password, so you shouldn't have to give it to them.
  4. Never divulge personal information, such as your real name, phone number, credit card information, home address or email address in a chat room. You'll never know who is "lurking".


 It is your responsibility to safeguard your personal information, no one else's.
