Safety and Guidelines
Your Safety is paramount to us; read the below safety guidelines to ensure that you are dating the right person. If you identify anything suspicious, report it to us immediately.
Never share your finances or transfer money:
Never share your card details or send wire money, even if the person claims to be in an emergency situation. Wiring money is like cash sending, which neither can be reversed nor traced. Never share your financial information that can be used to access your financial accounts. Report any requests for money or similar details to us.
Never share your personal information:
Don’t share your personal information like your social security number, work address, or home address, limit the information that you share about family, children in early communication. Avoid sharing details like children’s names, where they go to school, or their ages or genders.
Stay on the platform
Keep conversations on the platform while you are getting to know someone; don’t take it on personal applications and avoid sharing your phone number. Messages on FindingYou are subject to our safe messages filters. Users with bad intentions often try to move the conversation to email, text, messaging apps, phones, or any other platform.
Stay extra cautious with long-distance and overseas relationships:
Watch out for scammers who come from your country but claim to be stuck somewhere, especially if they are asking for help to return home. Be extra cautious about people who stay behind the camera and don’t talk in person or on the phone. If someone is not answering your questions or pushing you for serious relationships without a meeting, consider it a red flag.
Immediately Report offensive or suspicious behavior:
Saying inappropriate words is not acceptable in any way; so if someone has crossed the limit, let us know this. Block and report anyone that violates the dating norms. Here are a few violations you must watch out for:
Protect your account
Make sure you create a strong password and be careful when logging into the account from a shared account. FindingYou never asks you to provide account information such as passwords. If you happen to receive an email asking for the account information, report it immediately.

Meeting in Person
Don’t rush: Take your time and don’t rush into meeting the person immediately. Chat, talk over the phone and take your time before hopping for the in-person meeting. Don’t be afraid to ask your question to screen for any red flags. A video or phone call can be useful for screening before a meeting.
Don’t meet alone: Meeting privately or in your date’s home can be risky; so take time and prefer to meet in public places. If you are meeting for the first time, always prefer the populated, public place. If your date pressurizes you to go to a private location, immediately end the date.
Tell someone about your plan: Don’t go without informing someone. Tell your friends or family including where and when you are going. Charge your phone and keep it with you all the time.
Travel on your own: Make sure you are in control of your transportation so that you can leave whenever you want. Also, if you are not driving, it’s good to ask a friend to pick you up or to book a ride-share cab.
Be cautious about inappropriate things: Be careful of the illicit effects of alcohol or drugs, as they can impair your judgment.
Don’t leave drinks or other personal items unattended: Keep a watch on your drinks and see where it is coming. Accept drinks that are served in front of you and are directly from the bartender. Many substances that are slipped into the drinks are odorless, colorless, and tasteless. Also, keep your purse, wallet, purse, and your personal items with you.
If you are not feeling comfortable, leave: If you are feeling uncomfortable, end the date. If your instincts are telling you that something is not right, ask for help.
Check out all the laws around you when you travel to a new country. Do check the type of legal protection the country is offering.
