How to Date Safely Online:

To stay safe, there are certain steps that you should take while dating – both online and offline.


Please read the information below and remember that you are always the best judge of your safety. These guidelines are not intended to be a substitute for your own judgment.

Online Practises:

  • Finance: Protect Your Finances & Never Send Money or Financial Information

    Never respond to any request to send money, especially overseas or by wire transfer, and report it to us immediately – even if the person claims to be in an emergency. Wiring money is like sending cash: the sender has no protections against loss and it’s nearly impossible to reverse the transaction or trace the money.

  • Be Wise Online

    Block and report suspicious users. You can block and report concerns about any suspicious user anonymously from any profile page or messaging window. Keep conversations on the platform. Bad actors will try to move the conversation to text, personal email or phone conversations.

  • Protect Your Personal Information

    Never give personal information, such as: your social security number, credit card number or bank information, or your work or home address to people you don’t know or haven’t met in person.

    Note: SwitApp will never send you an email asking for your username and password information. Any such communications should be reported immediately.
  • Report All Suspicious Behavior

    Additionally, please report anyone who violates our Terms & Conditions here. Examples of violations include:

    • asking you for money or donations
    • members sending harassing or offensive messages or emails
    • members behaving inappropriately during or after meeting in person
    • fraudulent registration or profiles
    • Chatting outside the SwitApp platform
    • Use of offensive language

Offline Practises:

First in-person meetings are exciting, but always take precautions and follow these guidelines to help you stay safe.

  • Get to Know the Other Person

    Keep your communications on the platform and really get to know users online/using the app before meeting them in person. Bad actors often push people to communicate off the platform immediately. It’s up to you to research and do your due diligence.

  • Always Meet and Stay in Public

    Meet for the first few times in a populated, public place – never in a private or remote location and never at your date’s home or apartment. If your date pressures you, end the date and leave at once.

  • Tell Your Friends and Family Members of Your Plans

    Inform a friend or family member of your plans and when and where you’re going. Make sure you have your cell phone charged and with you at all times.

  • Tell Your Friends and Family Members of Your Plans

    Inform a friend or family member of your plans and when and where you’re going. Make sure you have your cell phone charged and with you at all times.

  • Transport Yourself to and from the Meeting

    You need to be independent and in control of your own transportation, especially in case things don’t work out.

  • Stay Sober

    Consumption of alcohol and/or other drugs can impair your judgment and potentially put you in danger. It’s important to keep a clear mind and avoid anything that might place you at risk. Be aware that bad actors might try to take advantage of you by altering your beverage(s) with synthetic substances.
