ONLINE DATING SAFETY TIPS

FreeHookup wants to help you date your way, whether you want to browse, flirt or find your soul mate. While doing so, however, your personal safety should be your top priority and you should always use caution and your best judgment when communicating with or meeting new people, both online and offline. Below are tips that can help you have a fun and safe experience using FreeHookup.


SHARING INFORMATION

There is no substitute for acting with caution when communicating with any stranger who wants to meet you. When communicating with other users, you should:

DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH

FreeHookup DOES NOT ROUTINELY SCREEN ITS USERS, INQUIRE INTO THE BACKGROUND OF OUR USERS, ATTEMPT TO VERIFY INFORMATION PROVIDED BY OUR USERS OR CONDUCT CRIMINAL SCREENINGS OF OUR USERS.We believe that providing background checks would lead to a false sense of security since databases of criminal convictions may not be up to date, not all convictions appear in background screenings and criminals may circumvent even the most sophisticated background screenings.


We recommend that you conduct your own research before sharing any personal information with, or meeting, another person. You can do this by searching for the person's name via an Internet search engine, contacting your local municipalities to obtain public information or using a paid service to obtain a full background report. It is important to use common sense and caution with every person you communicate with using our services. If any information a person provides you doesn't make sense, conflicts with other information that was provided or makes you apprehensive, you should end the communication.


MEETING IN PERSON

If you are meeting someone for the first time, you should always take precautions such as the following:

AVOIDING SCAMMERS

We encourage you to help us fight scammers and inappropriate profiles. If you suspect a user is trying to scam you, we encourage you to stop the communication and report them by clicking on the "Report this profile" link on their profile. Always remember to use your head as well as your heart. Most scams involve one or more of the following:

We also encourage you to report any profiles that contain obscene, pornographic, abusive, violent or otherwise offensive photos or content. By reporting such violations, you not only protect yourself but also help other FreeHookup users. Simply go to the violator's profile and click on "Report this profile" link.
