At Zoosk, we believe that dating should be safe, fun, and comfortable. When you begin dating online it's a good time to think about what you want from a relationship. It's also a good time to think about how to safely meet and interact with new people.
ZOOSK DOES NOT ROUTINELY SCREEN OUR MEMBERS, INQUIRE INTO THE BACKGROUND OF OUR MEMBERS, ATTEMPT TO VERIFY INFORMATION PROVIDED BY OUR MEMBERS, OR CONDUCT CRIMINAL SCREENINGS OF OUR MEMBERS.
Your online and offline safety is your responsibility and should be your top priority. Here are some essential tips to help you protect yourself while seeking love in the digital realm:
Explore Zoosk's Safety Center:
Zoosk, much like other trustworthy dating platforms, places a high priority on user safety. Take the time to explore Zoosk's Safety Center, where valuable information and guidelines can be found to help you stay secure while using the platform.
Develop Trust Gradually:
While the prospect of getting to know someone new is exciting, it is important to proceed with caution. Avoid sharing sensitive personal information such as your work or home address and never share your financial details or social security number. Zoosk stresses the importance of gradually building trust, encouraging users to take one step at a time.
Make Use of In-App Messaging:
Zoosk provides a secure in-app messaging feature, creating a controlled environment for communication. By keeping your conversations within the platform, you not only safeguard your privacy but also enable Zoosk to monitor and address any suspicious activity.
In an effort to improve user safety, Zoosk has introduced profile verification features. Take advantage of these tools to ensure that the person you're interacting with is genuine. Verified profiles can provide an additional layer of confidence in your online connections.
Report Unusual Behavior:
Zoosk maintains a robust reporting system. Should you encounter any suspicious or inappropriate behavior, use Zoosk's reporting tools promptly. This proactive approach helps to uphold a secure and respectful community for all users. There is no reason for anyone to ask you for money or your financial information. Always keep your bank and account information private. If you are asked to send money or share financial information by another user, you should immediately break contact and report it to us right away. It is not only a red flag, but a definite indicator of something not being right.
Arrange Meetings Safely:
When moving from online to offline interactions, prioritize safety by scheduling initial meetings in public places. Inform a friend or family member about your plans, make sure your cell phone is on you and charged, and if you feel uncomfortable at any time, end the date and leave.
Stay Updated with Zoosk's Resources:
Zoosk consistently updates its Safety Center with the latest tips and guidelines. Stay informed about the platform's safety features and recommendations to ensure you are well-prepared to use the online dating landscape securely.
