We all know that meeting total strangers can really be exciting … but also dangerous. It’s easy to get swept away in the romance of the moment and forget that we also need to be conscious of our safety.
The internet has given us access to thousands of people, which is great when you want to find a soul mate. But is also means that people can and will take advantage of what we have online. And this includes our photos and identity.
