How safe are online dating?

I wanted to meet women through dating sites. But my antivirus warns about the presence of viruses on such sites. What to do? Ignore these warnings or can there really be viruses on such sites?

  • Hi  

    Some of these websites are malicious in nature, so would request you to check the warnings alerted by your anti-virus software. It is recommended to check the URLs on Virustotal for the detection of viruses, worms, trojans and other kinds of malicious content using antivirus engines and website scanners.

  • Probably not the correct place for such an question, but hats off to you for raising a smile! Good luck in your search for a new partner, but as others have warned - Sadly viruses and dodgy content can exist on ANY site these days - even trusted ones and you should always make sure you're using current and recognised security products on your PC.

    It has both pros and cons

  • Good day, you can not worry, nothing will happen to your computer. You can check this by reading this article. Just an antivirus recognizes dating sites as a potential threat.
