Online Safety Fears Amid Increased Internet Dating Activity

GUERNSEY, January 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

It has been reported recently that dating agencies have seen a huge rise in popularity in the weeks after the Christmas period and a great deal of increased activity. This is great news for online daters, but internet safety experts advertSAFE are urging users to take extra care when they sign up to dating sites.

Dating agencies have reportedly seen a 350 per cent increase in traffic in the weeks after Christmas and it's easy to see why. The Christmas and New Year periods give people plenty of time to reflect on what they want out of their love lives and many people take to dating sites to find partners who share their outlook.

However, the internet is not just a place of great potential when it comes to connectivity. There are also people out there who will exploit the opportunity for others to connect more easily, and that's why it's such a good idea to take measures to stay safe online.

This is particularly important in the field of online dating where personal information is often exchanged quite readily between members looking to strike up a connection. Most members use dating sites to flirt and send messages before agreeing to meet up on dates so a lot of information changes hands.

The team at encourages people to be vigilant when using online dating sites and to protect themselves wherever possible. It is possible to use ID checks in order to verify your identity online and online daters are often given the chance to operate online with greater confidence when they can see that everyone online is who they say they are.

advertSAFE specialise in helping internet users verify their identities online with a view to creating a safer and more transparent online community. The team has already helped countless members of social networks, dating sites, job search sites and so on to engage in online activity with greater confidence.
