Tips to Help You Stay Safe Using Facebook Dating

When utilizing Facebook Dating, there are a few things you can do to help keep yourself and the Facebook community safe. Keep in mind that you are the best judge of your own safety, and these rules aren’t meant to replace your own judgment.
When speaking with strangers who wish to meet you, always be cautious. Keep in mind that everyone on Dating can see your Dating profile.

Sharing personal information should be done with caution.

Maintain the secrecy of your personal information. In your Dating profile or chat messages, don’t include your surname, email address, home address, phone number, work address, financial information, or any other identifiable information.
Anyone who asks you to disclose this type of sensitive information, information that could jeopardize your privacy, safety, or security, or anyone you suspect, should be reported and blocked. We will not inform the person that you have reported them.

Be wary of con artists.

Scammers may try to trick you into giving them money or personal information by using fake or compromised accounts. If you receive a communication that you feel is a scam, instead of responding, report the sender to Facebook.

The following are some common warning indicators of a scammer:

  • Wants to leave Facebook Dating right away and speak with people using a personal email address or a messaging app.
  • To entice you to talk with them, they soon claim to be in love.
  • Plans to visit, then something unfortunate happens and plans are canceled.
  • You are asked to wire money, send presents, or send gift cards.

Scammers may request funds to cover travel expenses, medical emergencies, hotel costs, hospital bills, or visas. Any online love interest who requests for money is most certainly a con artist. Learn more about how to keep your account safe and how to avoid other common scams.

Please do not transfer money.

Never send money, wire money, or make a donation in response to demands. Stop engaging with anyone who tries to manipulate or pressure you into disclosing financial information.
If you think you’ve given money to a fraudster, contact your bank and local law authorities right once, and report anyone who asks you to send money.

  • If you’re feeling uneasy or unsafe,
    Contact your local police authorities for assistance if you or someone you know has been a victim of a crime or is in urgent danger.
  • You can end the date and organize your own transportation home if you ever feel pressed or uncomfortable.
  • Anyone who makes you feel uneasy should be blocked.
  • Anyone you suspect of being suspicious should be reported.
