Safety tips on internet dating

Here are our Trust and Safety Team’s top tips for avoiding scammers, so you can have a fun and enjoyable digital dating experience: 1. Don’t be afraid to Google someone you’ve just met online. Don’t ignore any hesitancy or feelings of discomfort.

If you met over Facebook, use Google’s “search by image” feature to check for multiple Facebook profiles using the same photo. Fake Facebook accounts usually have extremely low friend counts, photos with no tags in them (or no tags linking to actual Facebook pages) and photos that don’t include family members, friends, or everyday adventures. Even if your initial Google searches don’t bring up anything suspicious — or they do and you’re not sure what to do with the uncertainty — don’t hesitate to order a background check on the individual. Have privacy settings in place and be careful to not divulge too much personal information. If someone is pursuing you online, you have every right to ask as many questions as needed to put your mind at ease. You shouldn’t need to talk yourself into investing in a relationship with someone you haven’t met in person.

With recent news about the convictions of internet scammers it’s easy to fear being duped by an online relationship.

At e Harmony we have a dedicated trust and safety team who work round the clock to keep you safe from fraudsters, but there are also steps you can take to stay safe when online dating.

Second, until you’ve met and feel you can trust the person you’ve met online, don’t share your address, where you work or study, your phone number or email address.Most of these safe online dating services require a membership fee, so choose wisely.“There’s a difference between being cyber savvy and cyber secure,” says Michael Kaiser, the executive director of the National Cyber Security Alliance.Stay in the app It’s safer to keep using the messaging function within the dating app or site until you feel you have met and can trust them.If they ask for your number, or ask you to email them or switch to Whats App (a common trick among scammers is to say their subscription is running out), just politely decline and say it’s nothing personal, it’s just your policy not to.
