Privacy and Security

If you're trying to meet someone that sweeps you off your feet, you'll have to put yourself out there in one way or another. But does that mean you have to make your information available to every Tom, Dick and Harry on your dating site of choice? Fortunately, dating sites have implemented specific security features to make online dating as safe as possible while still introducing you to fun singles in your area. offers the most privacy options of our editor's picks, allowing users to hopefully minimize their exposure. Dating sites like eHarmony that focus more on matchmaking do not allow users to search independently, so your profile is only shared with relevant matches. Accordingly, compatibility algorithm sites don't necessarily feel the need to implement such strict security measures, since your profile won't be seen by as many people.
