Facebook Dating Safety Tips
We recommend that you read the information below to help keep yourself and the Facebook community safe. You are always the best judge of your own safety, and these guidelines are not intended to be a substitute for your own judgement.
Don’t include your last name, financial information, email, home address, phone number, place of work or any other identifying information in your Facebook Dating profile or chat messages with someone. Report and block anyone asks you to share this kind of personal information.
Watch Out For Scams
Scammers may use fake or compromised accounts to trick you into giving them money or personal, information. If you’ve received a message that you believe is a scam, you should not reply to them and report them to Facebook. Scammers may try to get you to wire money or send gifts. They might ask for money to cover travel, medical emergencies, hotel bills, hospital bills or visas. Any online love interest that asks for money is likely a scammer.
Don’t Send Money
Never respond to any requests to send money, wire transfer or make a donation. Contact your bank and local law enforcement right away if you think you’ve sent money to a scammer, and anyone who asks you to send money.
Getting to Know Someone
People may misrepresent themselves and their intentions in the Facebook Dating profile, including their gender or sexual orientation. This could lead to harassment or harm if you decide to meet them in person. Keep your communications on Facebook Dating, do your research and really get to know the other person before you meet for the first time.
