Whether you want to get away from a bad date, or feel like you’re in a seriously unsafe situation, there are plenty of safety apps on the market to help you date with proper precaution. This is one of the best apps on the market, and it’s free for both i OS and Android phones. Once downloaded, the app has you set up three personal contacts from your phone.
If you find yourself in an unsafe situation, you can open the app and send an alert to your pre-selected contacts. It allows users to set a timed activity, like running or walking the dog, and if you don’t deactivate the timer within the allotted time, it will start notifying your contacts that something may be wrong. Then, if the danger gets real, take your thumb off and the police are alerted immediately.
Online dating service e Harmony has been banned from claiming it uses a "scientifically proven matching system".
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) found the service could offer no evidence it offered customers a significantly greater chance of finding lasting love, and described e Harmony’s claims as “misleading”.
The ASA said consumers would interpret the claim "scientifically proven matching system" to mean that scientific studies had found that the website offered users a significantly greater chance of finding lasting love than what could be achieved if they did not use the service.

Damit sind wir mehr als eine digitale Plattform: Bumble versteht sich als Community.
In online dating, first impressions are crucial: usually people focus on having a good photo or writing a clever profile.
There are also options for setting a check-in word or duress code in case someone takes over your phone in an emergency situation. The app lets you pick the activity you’re doing, like jogging, shopping, or showing a house to clients, and select a time limit.
If you fail to check-in at the allotted time, the app will send out alerts to your pre-selected contacts.
The only downside is the friends and family members you designate as your safety contacts also have to download the app, but it is free for both Apple i OS and Android devices. In order to set it up, you visit the Kitestring website and sign up with your phone number and emergency contacts.
