Cam sex by phone and talk - How to use dating sites safely

We asked Stewart and Tony Neate, CEO of Get Safe Online, for their tips for enjoying dating sites while making sure you stay safe. If you’ve never used a dating site or app before, you might not know which one to pick.

According to Stewart, you should always “stick to mainstream websites and be cognizant that anyone can join most any site and pose as any person.” One way to tell if a website is trustworthy is the extent to which it lets you protect your information.

Avoid using personal information when creating your username or writing your online dating profile.

Never give out your personal email address, phone number, or home address to someone you have just met online.

Bumble is a dating app that only allows women to initiate contact in opposite-sex connections; in same-sex connections either party may initiate contact. Since 2012, Tinder has been matching singles based on their social profiles and geographic location. Both users must “swipe right” before being matched and are then able to chat within the app.
