Online Safety Rules
Don’t Disclose Your Financial Information
We protect your data unless you share your financial data yourself. Don’t trust emergency requests or people who ask you for financial help because they got in trouble. It’s likely that you deal with a scammer. Unfortunately, if you transfer money to a scammer yourself, we won’t be able to help you get it back. So, please before sending money to any user, report to Tune2Love and let us check the situation. For sure, you should never disclose the data about your financial account. Talking via a dating website is still the same as talking to a stranger in the street. You wouldn’t give away your financial data in the street, so keep it secret online as well.
Don’t Share Your Personal Information
Please, be careful while talking online. Don’t share your personal data and photos that can damage your reputation. To avoid harassment and stalking, keep secret the information about your social security number, your cards, the places that you regularly visit, gyms, your kids’ daily routine, and your work. By not sharing this information, you make sure that you and your children will be safe.
Don’t Leave Tune2Love Fast
Stick to the Tune2Love platform before you get absolutely sure that you want to move on in your communication with this person. We can protect you and your data only if you stay on Tune2Love, so don’t rush to messengers and phones before you get to know a person really well. And go on an offline date only when you are absolutely sure that this person is not a scammer. If you feel uncomfortable when someone pushes you to share personal data or meet offline, maybe you are really dealing with a scammer.
Don’t Fall into a Trap of Faraway Relationships
If you hear a story of a person stuck overseas, this can be a scammer as well. Scammers and fraudsters often ask for financial help on dating websites, but in reality, they face no trouble, they are just trying to get your money.
We Are Here to Help, Please Report when in Doubt
Please, don’t forget that you are not alone on Tune2Love. Don’t put up with offensive behavior. You can always report a problem or block a user if someone violates our terms. Please, report any inappropriate activity via the contact us form, especially, if you notice:

Offline Safety Rules
Patience and Safety First
Though you may really feel lonely and want to jump into a new relationship, stay patient. Remember that getting to know each other really takes time. Get to know your potential partner without leaving Tune2Love as here we will be able to protect you and your interests. Ask as many questions as possible to make sure that you are talking to a real person. And feel free to contact our support team if you feel in doubt.
Prefer Public Places for Offline Dates
For your first date, pick public places where there are many people. Avoid your home and your partner’s place. Respect yourself, and don’t feel obliged to go to the place of your partner even if they insist on it.
Tell Your Friend About Your Date Plans
It is better to notify your friend or relative that you are going on a date. Tell them about the place and time and the approximate time when you want to go back. Charge your phone before going out.
Be Independent in Your Transportation
Choose places that are easily accessible for you. By being independent of your partner, you can avoid harassment situations. You can ask your friend to give you a lift if you don’t drive yourself.
Be Careful About Your Health
Drugs and alcohol have an effect on how you feel, judge, and think. Don’t exceed your comfortable quantity or avoid altogether using substances that hinder your rational judgment. If your partner encourages you to use it, maybe, this is not the right partner for you.
Don't Eat or Drink if You Left Your Plate and Glass Unattended
Criminals can add odorless and tasteless substances to your drinks to commit sexual violence. So, eat only the food that was served by a bartender and always keep an eye on your glass. Also, don’t leave unattended all the things that contain your personal information, including your phone, purse, wallet, and ID cards.
You Are Free to Leave
If only you start to feel unsafe, end the date immediately. Your intuition is probably right. Your safety is more important than what some people may think of you.
Please, don’t hesitate to contact our support team here for more information and help.
