Safety Tips

Safety Tips

We encourage you to be cautious while interacting with strangers. Meeting new dates can be fun, but we advise you to put your safety first. We know you can't control other people's actions, so if you are exchanging first messages (meeting online) or meeting in person, here are some safety tips to help you during your experience on Dilmilay:


·       Sending money or sharing financial information is prohibited

Do not let your feelings put you into trouble. Even if your date chats you for an emergency, do not send money via wire transfer. This is because you can never trace or reverse such transactions. Do not share financial information that could be used to access your financial accounts.


·       Safeguard your Personal Information

You can read more about the type of personal information we collect about you on our "privacy policy page." We encourage you not to share personal information like your social security number, home/work address, your daily routine activities, or your kid's information with people you do not know.


·       Remain on the Platform

We encourage all communications to be strictly on Dilmilay while still getting to know your match.


·       Be Cautious of Long Distance and Overseas Relationships

Be careful of scammers or red flags. Those who ask for financial assistance claiming they are stuck overseas whereas they are right in your country are scammers. Also, those who do not want to meet in person or usually reject video calls are red flags to watch out for.


·       Protect Your Account

Use a strong password and be careful when logging in from a public or shared computer. Dilmilay will never send you an email requesting your password or personal information. You are advised to disregard such email when received.


·       Report all Suspicious and Offensive Behaviour

Any behavior that deviates from what we have on our "Community Guidelines" should be reported immediately. Block and report anyone that crosses the line or violates our terms.


·       Never be in a Rush

Ensure that you know the person well before arranging for an in-person meeting or chatting off Dilmilay. Do not be afraid to screen for any red flags and a video call can be a useful screening tool here.


·       Meet and Stay in Public

It is suggested meeting in public places a few times to gain the trust of your date. Never be pressurized to go to a private location, your date's home, or your home. If such cases exist, end the date.

·       Inform Family and Friends Ahead About your Plans

Wherever and whenever you are going to meet your new dates, inform your people about it. Keep your phone charged with your location every time.


·       Take Charge of Your Transportation

When you know how you arrived at the place, you can easily leave at your convenience. It is good to have a ride-share app if you drive yourself or have a friend to pick you up as a backup plan.


·       Keep it Positive

Communication is very important in dating. Not all match is going to be perfect for you or meet your expectations. Therefore, it is a natural and healthy process to close communications with matches, but if you do, please be polite and honest about it.


·       Be careful of URL Links in messages

This can direct you to another platform other than Dilmilay. Be careful when you choose to click on any URL links, and always use good judgment. These links might be sent to phish users' login details in order to compromise their accounts.
