Enjoy safety and security with Dating 27 – a safe place to meet online.

Living in South Africa, we are sure you are inundated with ways to stay safe in general and if you’ve been a Member of Dating 27 for a little while, you’re probably aware of how best to keep yourself safe online. Therefore we will keep this short and sweet.

Just to try and help a little, we thought we would send you a reminder of the golden rules that everyone should follow to make Dating 27 as safe a place as possible.

Follow these few simple check points and you’ll have nothing to worry about!


Choose a password that you can easily remember but that would be difficult for anyone else to guess. Childrens’ names are easy, but just as easy for someone who knows you to guess too!

Personal information

Dating 27 has a wonderful messaging system which means you don’t need to give out any contact information at all until you’re happy to, so don’t be afraid to tell someone that you’d rather stick to talking online for a bit longer. If they’re genuine then they won’t have a problem.


If someone you barely know asks to borrow money or asks for any sort of financial details whatsoever, then alarm bells should start to ring. You wouldn’t expect someone you met in a bar last week to ask you for money, and you shouldn’t expect it online either.

Personal safety

The bottom line, is that you should always stay in control. Meet in a public place, tell someone when and where you’re going, and arrange to call them at a given time to confirm all’s going well. If your date is a worth it, then they will completely understand.

Don’t panic!

The vast majority of people you meet online will be genuine people just like you who are simply looking for a date or some friendship. Unfortunately, it’s best to plan for the worst and then allow people to prove themselves otherwise, but don’t let the occasional dodgy character spoil your enjoyment.

Remember, Dating 27 will never send you any e-mails asking for any personal details, so if you get anything like this, please forward it on to us.

Take care and have fun,

The Dating 27 Team.
