Safety Tips for Online Dating
The CasualBlackBook crew wants to make sure you have a fun time on our site, and we are committed to providing a safe environment for you to play in. We've assembled a list of tips to help keep you and the CasualBlackBook community safe and scammer free.
Protect your password - You would never give your bank card number and password to someone just because they asked for it. Think of your CasualBlackBook personal ID the same way. Don't share your password with anyone inside or outside of this site, and the only page you should ever enter you user name and password is on CasualBlackBook login page.
Password manager - Don't store your member name and password in a Password Manager, as anyone who has access to that computer will be able to use the information stored. Only use a Password Manager if is it is your own personal computer, and no one else is able to use it.
Unique Password - Make sure that the password you use for CasualBlackBook is unique. Make it different from the passwords you use for email accounts, banking or any other sites.
Sharing personal information - You should never put your personal contact information in your public profile, as everyone will have access to it. Once you feel comfortable with another member, you can always choose to pass along your contact information.
Off-site communication - Be cautious when people try to lure you off of this site and onto another, usually one that requires credit card details to enter it. If this happens to you, please contact us with that user's name and we will investigate the matter further.
Trust your gut - It always knows best. Your instincts are the most accurate indicator when it comes to talking or meeting someone, and you should never ignore them. The moment you begin to feel unsure or unsafe about another user on this site, end communication with them immediately and report them to our customer service agents.
Verifying identity - The best way to verify someone's identity is on Video Chat. Insist on seeing current photos when contacting other members, and remember to give others the same.
Meet in a public place - Dates are supposed to be fun. If you choose to meet someone you've met online for a date, make it at a public place, like a coffee shop or a restaurant. Arrange to meet them there, not at your place, and always carry a cell phone in case of an emergency.
