The safety of our users is extremely important to us. There are guidelines that everyone can follow to ensure their safety while using Swipe. Please take a few minutes to read these tips.
Protect your identity until you are comfortable enough
You are in control of your Swipe experience at all times. Be careful about sharing personal information, such as your full name, phone number, email and address. Also, leave any personal contact information out of your Swipe profile.
Keep your financial information private
Ignore any request to send money and report it to firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. Even if the person claims to be in an emergency. Never give out financial information such as you social security number, credit card number or bank information.
Watch out for scammers. Here are some red flags to watch out for:
Sends you messages containing links to third-party websites
Quickly asks to talk or chat outside of Swipe
Asks you for money
Vanishes mysteriously then reappears under a different name
Asks for your address under the guise of sending flowers or gifts
Report suspicious users. This Includes:
Asking you for money or donations
Anyone that looks like they could be under the age of 18
Users sending harassing or offensive messages
Users behaving inappropriately after meeting in person
Spam or solicitation, such as attempts to sell products or services
Get to know the other person before meeting them offline
Get to know someone through chat before disclosing personal information or meeting in person. We don't conduct criminal background checks on our users, so it’s up to you to do your own research and remain cautious.
Always meet in public
Meet for the first time in a populated, public place. Never in a private or remote location, and never at your home or apartment.
Tell a friend or family member of your plans:
Tell them who you are meeting, where you are going and when you will return. Bring your phone with you.
Drive yourself to and from the first meeting
Be in control of your own ride, even if you take a taxi. Securing your own ride is important. Even if the person you're meeting volunteers to pick you up, do not get into a vehicle with someone you don’t know and trust, especially if it’s the first meeting.
Upload only your own photos and videos
We take copyrights very seriously. If you don't own the rights to a photo or video, please don't post it, as it's against our rules and may get you blocked from Swipe.
Respect all users
We’re a very diverse community. This means you should respect other people's beliefs, interests and property while on Swipe. You should behave the same way on Swipe as you would in real life.
Send original messages to other users
Don't copy and paste! Read profiles, see what they're into and send an appropriate, relevant message. Honestly, almost anything is better than sending 'Hey sexy' to every connection!
Don't pretend you're someone you're not
We hope you'll meet people in real life through Swipe, so we ask that you use your real name, photo and info in your profile. Don't pretend to be someone else.
No pornographic material
Swipe strictly prohibits the uploading of any pornographic material. Don't try it!
Don't do anything illegal on our site
We don't look kindly on illegal activity on Swipe, so you'll certainly be banned from the site, and may be reported to the authorities.
No spam or selling
Swipe isn't for spam or selling things. If you try to use it as a marketplace you'll be banned.
No photos of your kids
While you're welcome to let other users know you have kids, in chat or your profile, it's against our rules to post pictures of kids.
Last but not least, have fun!
Enjoy your time on Swipe. Chat with people, post moments, make friends and arrange to meet up. Whatever you do, have fun doing it!
