The Safer Date Guide

Safer Date is the only online dating app which insists on everyone undergoing a thorough ID check before they are allowed to join or even browse through other profiles. This is to ensure that every person is who they say they are, to prevent fake profiles and prevent catfishing. 

We also offer global criminal background checks for our premium members. Please see our FAQs for what we allow and disallow.

Safer Date is designed to be a safer space for you to meet online, chat, and hopefully find your happily ever after.

As we have added in additional security compared to other dating apps, the registration process is a little different. Here are some tips to help you with your registration and profile, so that you can get the most out of Safer Date.

How to Register for Safer Date

Firstly, you need to download the app from the app store. Then follow the in-app instructions to create your account.

The ID check is carried out in-app. You will need your current driving license or passport. You will also need to send us a selfie and perform a liveness check so we can identify you in real time. There are full instructions to help you every step of the way.

Please ensure that your selfie is in good light and that the photo of your driving license or passport is clear without any reflections. We need the images to be clear so that we can carry out biometric facial recognition.

Once you have successfully completed your ID check, you can try the Safer Date app for free.

If you would like to upgrade your membership to access all features including unlimited messaging, icebreaker questions, video dating and more, you can do so at any time. We will then start your background checks which will take up to 3 working days.

Please note: None of the checks we carry out leave any footprint at all.

If you fail the background checks, any membership fee you have paid is non-refundable.

All membership options are a recurring fee but you can cancel or upgrade your membership at any time within your account, up to 48 hours before the renewal date.

What Happens After Checkout

Once you have submitted your payment, you will still be able to look around the app and chat to other members, but you won’t be able to access the additional premium features until you have passed our background checks. These will take up to 3 working days to complete.

The ID & Background Checking Procedure

The ID check is carried out in-app once you have created your account. Once you have successfully completed the ID check, you are free to look round the app and chat to other members. You can send up to 5 messages (including message requests) per day. 

If you would like full access to all of the Safer Date features, you will need to subscribe and go through your background checks. Please be patient while the checks are being carried out. 95% of the checks will be returned within 3 working days.

If you have been identified and your background check comes back clear, we will approve your membership straight away.

If your background check comes back with a concern and the crime committed goes against our policies, we will refuse your premium membership and cancel your account.

Please note: Due to the nature of the data and GDPR, we will not disclose the reason for failure. Reasons for membership rejection include crimes of violence, abuse, fraud, theft and also insolvency. 

Please see our terms and conditions for further details

Completing Your Profile

You can log in to the app and complete your profile at any time after you have created your account and successfully completed your ID check.

If you have any issues or feature requests, please don’t hesitate to contact the Safer Date Team.
