Safer Date is the ONLY online dating platform which puts your safety first. Everyone must pass our 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 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 background & ID checks. Once you’re approved, you are free to browse other profiles, flirt, and send as many messages as you want to.

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.

You will receive an email with full instructions within 24 hours of signing up to Safer Date. You will need to compete the ID check first, then once this has been done, we will process your background check. 95% of our checks are returned within 72 hours. 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.
