Why Isn't Safer Date a Free Dating App?
Safer Date is a brilliant way to chat online, connect with people and to date, but we have had a few enquiries asking us why Safer Date isn’t free.
At Safer Date we work very hard to keep you as safe as we possibly can. We carry out real time ID checks, thorough global criminal background checks and even insolvency checks too. Unfortunately, this level of scrutiny does have a cost.
We keep our prices as low as we possibly can and our fees our actually lower than other premium dating sites (who don’t do any of the checks we do).
Why Do People Expect a Service to Be Free?
Any business that provides their services completely free would be bankrupt pretty quickly. We have costs to keep you safe as well as costs to run the app, staff costs and all of the other usual business running costs too.
Some other dating apps do provide a free version, but have you ever wondered how they make their money?
Some Free Dating Apps Sell Your Data to Make Their Money!
Did you know that some of the major dating apps actually sell your data to make their money? They sell it to other dating companies, gambling sites, and even sex sites! It’s actually in their terms and conditions too if you read them!
Are you really comfortable signing up to a dating platform that says “we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information will always remain secure.”?
Free Dating Apps Do NOTHING to keep out Criminals
In addition to selling your personal information to whoever is buying, free to use dating apps do not carry out any of the safety measures that we do to keep you as safe as possible and to ensure your personal data remains private. In fact, their dating sites and apps are full of fake profiles, catfish and criminals (including sex offenders!). Just do a quick Google search and you will see how many assaults and even murders have happened to people that met on Tinder.
Safer Date Pricing
At Safer Date, you have 3 options based on an upfront 3, 6 or 12 month subscription, starting from just £30 a month. Costs go towards Safer Date’s inspection and safety services which include criminal background checks, insolvency checks and even addicts register checks. We also repeat our checks every 12 months to keep you as safe as we can.
There are no other charges to use Safer Date, and we do not sell your data to anyone, nor are there any advertisements in the app. Overall we believe this offers great value for money compared to so-called ‘free’ apps, that charge you hidden fees to use their best features, and sell your data to advertisers.
Whether you’re new to online dating and feeling a little unsure, or you’ve tried the typical dating sites and have undoubtedly had a bad experience (as they let literally anyone sign up), now is the time to try a different, safer way of online dating.
