Welcome to Safer Date – the UK’s only online dating app that carries out global criminal background checks and identity checks before allowing members to join. Your safety is our priority and until you can be someone else’s number one, you’re ours.
Here’s a list of our most frequently asked questions to help you navigate the safest dating app there is, but if you can’t find what you’re looking for, please get in touch with our team.
Safer Date is the ONLY dating app which puts your safety first. Everyone must pass our mandatory background and ID checks before they can become a member. Furthermore, non-members cannot browse through online profiles, adding a further layer of security and privacy.
Safer Date provides a safer online dating experience for everyone. It is for good, honest people without a criminal background who want to meet a partner with the same qualities. As long as you fit those criteria, you are welcome to join. Safer Date is for both heterosexuals and the LGBT community.
We’d love to offer everyone a free trial, but we have costs to cover to keep you safe. To provide a safer online dating experience, we carry out thorough, global criminal background checks, ID checks and offer a fast-track service to get you online as soon as possible, which all have costs attached – and of course we have the usual business running costs too. However, we keep our prices as low as we possibly can and regularly have special offers or competitions on our Facebook page to win free membership.
Our online dating membership starts from just £42/month including the cost of your thorough background & ID checks. The longer you sign up, the greater the saving. Don’t forget to follow our Facebook page for details of any competitions and special offers.
You can choose to commit to periods of 3 months, 6 months or a year. The longer term you choose, the cheaper the monthly fee. Your membership is paid upfront, but will auto renew unless you cancel your membership at least 48 hours before it’s renewal date. You can manage your subscriptions within your account.
No – Safer Date is currently a UK dating site only.
Yes of course. If you do not want your subscription to auto-renew, simply cancel your membership at least 48 hours before it’s renewal date. You will receive reminders by email and you can manage your subscriptions within your account.
Safer Date carries out the most comprehensive, global background checks possible. We are proud to partner with an intelligence agency who work closely with the Police, Interpol, the FBI, the National Crime Agency and other intelligence agencies across the world. We also carry out insolvency checks and addicts register checks to add a further layer of security. Please note: None of these checks leave any footprint at all.
Firstly, you will need to complete the real-time ID check within the app. Once this has been done, we will then process your background check. 95% of our checks are returned within 3 working days. We process the checks between the hours of 8am and 5:30pm, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays).
Unfortunately, the DBS only shows up approximately 6% of the problem as it is based on convictions only. Plus, it only shows crimes committed in the UK. Even if you already have a DBS certificate, you will still need to go through our full checking procedure.
If you fail our checks, we will let you know straight away and you will not be allowed to join Safer Date. We will refund the cost of your membership minus the cost of the ID & background checks.
We will NEVER divulge the reasons for the failure to anyone else.
Yes you can. Traffic offences won’t stop you from joining Safer Date. What will stop you is any offence of abuse or violence, whether physical, psychological or sexual, against adults, children or animals.
In short, if you have a history of toxic traits, you can’t join our Safer Date.
Safer Date is designed to be a safer online dating platform. We carry out identity checks and thorough, global background checks on every member before they are allowed to join. We have strict entry criteria unlike any other dating site.
We can assure you that we will not allow ANY member to join our site if they have a history of serious criminal offences or if they cannot be identified. However, we cannot account for any crimes that have been spent, for any crimes a member may have committed and not been caught for, for any crimes a person may commit in the future or for any negative personality traits a person may have. We can only use the information provided during the background checks at point of registration. You are always responsible for your own safety and decisions.
