Imagine a world where every social platform and dating app has to be regulated. Where they have to have a clear set of rules and legal standards to identify and vet people. Where no-one can be anonymous and spread their hateful words. Where no criminal can reinvent themselves time and time again to find their victims. Where there are no more daily headlines about romance fraud and other horrendous online dating related crimes. This is exactly what we want to achieve. This is Safer Date’s vision.
We carry out real-time ID checks on every member before allowing them to access our platform. We also carry out a thorough global criminal background check, including cautions. Anyone with a serious criminal history will never gain access to our app.
At Safer Date, we believe that every social site and every dating app should have strict legislation that enforces identification of every member upon signup.
In addition to this, all websites and apps with a lot of personal interaction should carry out criminal background checks on all their members. A Basic DBS check will show UK convictions which is a step in the right direction, but as it does not show any cautions or overseas criminal activity, it’s not enough.
Everyone deserves to be safe when they are browsing the internet – not only children but adults too – and it’s time for all online organisations to come together to make this happen.
