Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

At Safer Date, your safety is our priority. Safer Date is the UK’s ONLY online dating site where all members are checked and vetted, leaving you to check out what’s really important. Here’s a list of our most frequently asked questions to help you, but if you can’t find what you’re looking for, please get in touch.

Safer Date is the UK’s ONLY online dating platform which puts your safety first. Everyone must pass our criminal background (DBS) 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 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. We carry out 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.

The only costs on Safer Date are the membership fees and the cost of the DBS & ID check. Once you’re approved, you are free to browse other profiles, flirt, and send as many messages as you want to. There are no additional charges.

A DBS check provides a record of a person’s criminal convictions and cautions, which is carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service. The DBS check shows unspent convictions and conditional cautions.

Safer Date carries out Basic DBS checks which identifies not only unspent criminal convictions, but also any cautions the applicant has. It is the most thorough background check that we can do.

The short answer is no – not unless you give us permission. When you undergo a DBS check through us, we will simply be notified if there is anything of concern on your DBS certificate. If there is, we will ask you to provide a copy of your certificate to comply with our vetting procedure. You can refuse this, but you won’t be allowed to join our site.
