In the trap of free niche dating sites?
Tuesday, July 30th, 2013
Niche dating sites, paid or free are becoming hot favorite amongst online singles. It has all the good reason to be the number one choice as it gives them the opportunity to find the like minded singles that has more compatibility over singles they meet on other top free dating sites. They share almost all the details on these sites and at time some are very confidential.
But, have you ever thought if these sites are safe? Are they using your profile information to gain business and other financial aims? Or simply displaying you as HIV niche dating site member? This is a serious concern and one of the leading STD (sexually transmitted diseases) and HIV niche dating site Successful Match has been found doing such activities that compromise the confidential info from Positivesingles.com with their affiliates and partner sites HIVGaymen.com and STDHookup.com.
News published by USNews.com talks to two single ladies whose identity has been compromised. This news has been reported by Consumeraffairs.com and weau.com.
Selling or displaying confidential data for business purpose is totally unethical, it is not that all top dating sites are safe, don’t forget that POF (plenty of fish) got hacked in 2012. But, this was unintentional by owner and it can happen to any top paid of free dating sites.
Here is your checklist to choose a trustworthy and reliable dating sites.
1. Check out the age of the site, you can simply do it by going to whois.net and typing the name of the site. This will show the age of the name of the site. Those who prohibited the age are certainly less trustworthy.
2. Check out a few profiles on the site as this gives you more insight on what kind of profiles are there on that dating site. Even if you find less profiles more importantly it has to be genuine and not fake.
3. If the site is paid or ask any donation, check out is the site is secure or not. Site should show a secure payment symbol and must have “https://” in the address bar. You can also look for a positive or negative reviews of online dating sites before you sign up and become the member of the site.
