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.
Take things slowly and share more information when you feel comfortable doing so.
It is impossible to get back information once you have given it away.
- Remember that overtly sexual, provocative or controversial usernames could attract the wrong kind of attention. Stay in control when it comes to how and when you share information.
Don't include your contact information such as your email address, home address, or phone number in your profile or initial communications.
You don’t need to give out your life-story the first time you chat – and you shouldn’t.
There will be plenty of time to share such details if your relationship develops.
Password & Security - Be careful when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others can't view or record your password or personal information.
- Be wary of opening email attachments from someone you have only just met - Ensure that you keep your internet security software up to date.
And a person can become a problem without having a record.
