Internet Security- 8 Tips to Protect Yourself When Dating Online

A lot of people find great, healthy relationships through online dating communities. Most of the people who sign up for them are legitimately looking for love and relationships. However, there are always going to be people out there who will take advantage of others. So what can you do to protect your internet security, and yourself, when using online dating

1. If you do decide to meet someone in person, do it in a public place. Preferably, meet them in daylight hours and ask someone to go with you. If that doesn't work, then at least leave information with a trusted person which includes where you are going, how long you plan on staying,a s well as anything identifiable about the person that you are meeting.

2. Do not rely on a photograph. It might not even be the person that you are really talking to. Or, it could have been them 20 years before. People use different pictures or are dishonest about their appearance all the time.

3. Save all of your conversations in a file on your computer. Better yet, print them out. Keep them somewhere that is fairly easy to access.

4. Talking to someone online is not the same as talking to them in person. Don't rush the relationship and don't feel as though you have to meet them right away.

5. use a different e-mail account for your online dating than you do for your regular emails.

6. Do not ever give out any personal information at the beginning. In addition, keep your last name and anything personal, such as your address and directions to your house private, until you have met the person and have gotten to know them a little bit better. If you must give them your number, give them a cell phone number instead of your house phone.

7. Find a reputable online dating service. Don't just go to Google and search for singles chat rooms. An account that you have to pay for is generally more reputable than one that is free of charge.

8. Don't post any racy or revealing photographs of yourself. This is sure to draw the wrong kind of person-and not one that is looking for a relationship with anything serious in mind. In addition, try to choose a screen name that isn't too revealing either.
