DATE SAFE

Keeping your security in mind, following are some safety tips for your experience on and off the application. If you have any questions or wish to suggest another tip, mail to us at mail@nonames.com.

Alertness is Key

While you are browsing the application, you might encounter fraudulent or suspicious accounts that might try to gain your personal information by trying to move the conversation to other platforms. If you encounter such users, it is advised that you report and block them. You can report any user based on suspicious or harmful activity, we at No Names will always ensure that it is anonymously submitted.

Keep Your Personal Information off the Application

No Names does not ask for your name or any other personal information for registration, apart from your phone number. Never give out your personal information to other No Namers on the application. This information may include but is not limited to your name, address, phone number, bank information and any government identification number. If any user asks for any such information, contact support to report the user.

Never Send Money to other No Namers

If any user requests money or your financial information on the application, report them immediately. Users might claim they are in an emergency and require money, but never send money to other users, especially through wire transfers. Do not share any information that might help them access your financial accounts or records.

Stay on the Application till the Date Concludes

The No Names team is here to help. We provide exceptional support and features to ensure that your date goes smoothly. To help us serve you better, we request you to stay on the application till your date concludes.

Report all Suspicious Activity

If any user acts suspiciously or acts against our terms, block and report them. Some of the violations include:

  • Users pretending to be over 18 years old
  • Sending messages aimed to harass or threaten other users
  • Fraudulent profiles
  • Spamming links to commercial websites to sell products or gain affiliate commissions
  • Not showing up to the set date
  • Inappropriate behaviour on the application or on the date made through the application
  • Profiles created with an aim to catfish

Meet in the Decided Location Only

On No Names, users must select the location whilst making a date. Once your request is accepted, and you are meeting another No Namer, ensure that you meet in the location mentioned on the date in the application. If a user pressures you to meet at another location, or changes any plans at the last minute, avoid meeting.

Keep Someone Informed

No Names keeps all your information discreet and doesn’t inform anybody about your date, but you should. Before you leave for your date, keep someone close to you informed about your plans, be it a family member or a friend. If you and the other No Namer decide to move to a secondary location after your date, it is advised to keep someone in the loop. Always remember, your security is best in our own hands.

Discomfort is not Good

Dating is about feeling comfortable with the other person. If at any point of time during the date you feel uncomfortable, it is okay to end the date early. We encourage all our No Namers to not continue a date if you feel any discomfort. If you believe something is off or you feel unsafe, keep your mobile device handy and ask the server or any staff for help.

Monitor Your Alcohol Intake

Alcohol might be fun, but only if you know your limits. Excessive consumption of alcohol or similar substances can hinder your alertness and judgement. If your date pressures you to consume additional alcohol or substances, stand firm and even end the date for your safety. Don’t leave your drinks unattended as well. Odourless and tasteless substances can be slipped into your drink if you leave them unattended. These substances may cause dizziness, short term memory blockage and more, and are majorly used to facilitate sexual assault.

Keep Transportation in Your Hands

You should be in control of your transportation when you are meeting someone for the first time. This allows you to leave on your own if you feel unsafe. If you are driving to the location yourself, make sure you have a backup plan, such as the subway or ride-share app. Also, don’t drink and drive!

Keep Your Phone Charged

Your phone is your best friend when you are meeting someone for the first time. Before you leave, make sure your phone has a substantial amount of charge which will get you through the date. If you have access to a power bank, carry it. Keep the numbers of your family and close friends on speed dial in case of emergency. Do not hesitate to call someone to pick you up if you are feeling unsafe with your date.

Sexual Health and Consent

Consent is Key

All physical and sexual activity must begin only after the consent of participating individuals. Communicate with our partner to establish boundaries and inform them what’s not okay. Please remember, sex is not owed to anyone, and your consent is up to you. If your partner is unable to consent due to discomfort or effects of alcohol or similar substances, do not move forward.

Know Your Health

Sexual activity brings along the risk of several Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). Not all STIs show symptoms, which makes it essential to check your status before you engage in any sexual activity. Ensure the safety of yourself and your partner by getting tested regularly. While some of them are fatal, most STDs and STIs can be cured by vaccinations and prescribed drugs.

Communicate About the Risks

STDs and STIs are no joke. Before you engage sexually with your partner, talk to them about their status. If you feel your partner is unsure about their status or are hiding something, it is advised that you do not get physically intimate.

Additional Support

Though these tips cover almost every aspect, no method of safety is flawless. If you have any negative encounter with a date, do not hesitate in calling any emergency services or competent authorities for help.
