The good and bad of internet dating

Are online daters giving away too much about themselves?Are they, through online dating, exposing themselves and their devices to malicious people – or indeed malware – all too easily?

This report outlines the responses of 6,458 online dating users from 30 of the countries surveyed (answers from respondents in China and the UAE have been excluded) regarding their online activity, including the types of devices they use, the kind of information they share, and any concerns they might have about online dating apps and services.

Data was weighted to be globally representative and consistent, split equally between men and women, and not all the results from the study have been included in this report.

How we conduct our relationships is changing, and it’s clear that technology has a key part to play in this change.

People are now not only turning to their devices to work, shop, and play, but to manage their personal lives and relationships too. But with concerns rife following incidents such as the infamous Ashley Madison breach, and with the process inherently requiring users to share personal information, it’s important to consider the potential dangers involved.
