However, there are exceptions, and you need to be aware of how to keep yourself - and your bank account and savings - protected while meeting people online.
Don't include your contact information such as your email address, home address, or phone number in your profile or initial communications.
Take things slowly and share more information when you feel comfortable doing so.
There will be plenty of time to share such details if your relationship develops.
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.
It is impossible to get back information once you have given it away.
- Stop communicating with anyone who attempts to pressure you into providing your personal or financial information or who seems to be trying to trick you into providing it.If this happens contact the dating provider immediately to not only protect yourself but other users too.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.Take care and take your time when you talk about yourself.You don’t need to give out your life-story the first time you chat – and you shouldn’t.Act with caution and learn more about someone before contacting him or her outside of the dating site.
