Online Dating Safety For The Over 60's

We know how web save the over 60's are these days, we know you know your stuff and have your head in the right place, but just in case, we thought we might remind you of a few simple rules to help your online dating experience go as smoothly as possible.

Account Password

We all get sick and tired of having so many passwords, but it really isn't a good idea using the same password for all of your online accounts. Your password should be easy for you to remember, but impossible for anyone else to guess. We suggest using a mix of letter and number, but try not to use names or years somebody may know are important to you. If you could come up with a password that is random mix of letters and numbers, that would be great. If you really must write your password down, keep it somewhere safe and not on the same piece of paper as your login email address or username.

Personal Information

Our awesome dating messaging system is all you need to use to break the ice and means that you don't need to divulge any personal information whatsoever, until you are happy to do so. If somebody asks for your personal information, don't be afraid to tell them you'd rather just talk online for the time being. If they are genuine, they won't have a problem with that. This is your dating experience, and you are completely in charge.

Scammers

We do a great job at catching scammers who try to use our website, while you don't need to panic, it's worth airing on the side of caution. If another member asks to borrow money or asks for any kind of financial details from you whatsoever, no matter how genuine their reason may sound, don't reply to the request. You wouldn't expect a complete stranger to ask to borrow money from you. Instead, pass on their details to us via the contact us option in your account, or even better, give us a call on 0800 9875555 and our friendly team will look into it for you.

Personal Safety

When you are ready to meet your date, we strongly suggest that you do so in a public place. Tell a friend or relative where you are going and what time you expect to be home. It's a good idea to arrange to call whoever you told while you are on the date, to let them know all is well. Remember, you are in control of your date, if you don't feel comfortable, you shouldn't worry about making an excuse and leaving.
