Because there is such a high demand for safety precautions among online daters, many platforms have implemented features that make it easier for daters to know if their matches are as promising as they seem to be.
Besides the ability to block someone from contacting you, many dating sites also feature the ability to turn off instant messages, location tracking, etc.
Check the privacy settings page on your dating website of choice to see what settings are available.
If you’re using a service that does not include such a feature, you can also verify the legitimacy of a photo using Google’s reverse image search tool, which pulls up any similar images on other web pages.
This means if your match has stolen any image from another online dater, Google will help you discover it.
