Safety PSA!

A+ A-

Dear friends,

It has come to our attention that some people have been insisting on receiving personal information from other users such as Facebook profiles, personal phone numbers, and other details that might potentially put such users at risk. Please be aware that some people here may not be who they claim to be, and may use this information to out and blackmail you as a worst case scenario. One user here, who has since been deleted, has been posing as another person to trick people into giving out their personal info.

Many people here have made amazing longterm friends and have met up in person, so thankfully this is an unlikely situation, but still very possible. We're not asking you to not trust anyone at all, just that you should be cautious who you entrust with your personal details so that your personal safety would never be jeopardized.

If you find that someone is sending you suspicious messages and requests, please report the incident to us so we could look into it.

  • Good reminder, thanks Edel!

    • But how would u get to know people more or even meet up in person if u don't ask for personal information? I personally ask people although I'm very cautious too about my own safety. But i guess we have to take that risk at some point.

    • ^ that's exactly right, but don't even think about giving your info right away without knowing them very well, online.

    Yeah, that's true but what if you want to know someone more I mean your first conversation with anyone starts with introducing yourself it's risky to say too many details about your life with someone whom you're talking to online but you will have to tell him your age your university and your hometown and if you want to know him more you will have to give him your number or your kik id cause the chat here on the website is shitty!
