Be Responsible and do your own Research - There is a limit to an online dating provider’s ability to check the backgrounds of users and verify the information they provide.
They cannot do a criminal records check on every user.
Creating your online dating profile: protect your identity and personal information Be Anonymous - Choose a username that doesn’t let everyone know who you are.
- Be wary of opening email attachments from someone you have only just met - Ensure that you keep your internet security software up to date.
You don’t need to give out your life-story the first time you chat – and you shouldn’t.
