Safe Swipe Background Checks For Dating
When you match with an exciting new date, online or in-person, the last thing you want to think about is what could go wrong.
Background checks aren’t just about safety or exposing a cheating love interest. You can also use public records to find out if you’re compatible with a potential partner.
SafeSwipe is a brand new app, designed to keep you safe both online and on the go. Just download the app to your device, and you can access background checks instantly.
The next time you arrange a date with someone you met online or at a bar, quickly run their name or digits through SafeSwipe.
Here’s what you might find in their report:
Personal information may include details such as:
- First, middle, and last name
- Known aliases
- Date of birth
53% of Match users confessed to lying on their dating profile. Age, appearance, and income were the most common lies told.
Most online daters naturally choose only the most flattering profile pictures to display. But some daters take it a bit too far and post a photograph from years ago — or worse, a completely fake photo of someone else.
Don’t trust what someone has shared on their dating profile. If you’re planning to meet up, take a quick look at their possible photographs just to make sure that they are who they say they are.
Jobs and Education
Sure, jobs and education are a good way to find out if someone is lying about having a PhD in rocket science.
But it’s also a good way to scope out their interests and gauge potential compatibility.
Possible Relatives, Associates, and Relationships
If your date is withholding the fact that they’re already married, examine this section closely. Spouses and even ex-spouses occasionally make a cameo in the “Possible Relatives” section.
What about a live-in girlfriend or boyfriend? This might show up in the associates section of a SafeSwipe report. Public records can reveal people who may also share an address with your date. With unlimited reports for members, you can also open up the reports of their roommates and possible spouse. What do their social media profiles tell you?
Possible phone numbers and email addresses can be a wily way to catch a cheater. Active cheaters may use burner email addresses to sign up for dating websites and hookup apps.
Pro tip: Is that secondary phone number prepaid? It might be a burner phone.
If a cheating partner is currently being intimate with other people, they may even have a second phone line to keep their conversations hidden from you.
With SafeSwipe’s “Location History” feature, you can find out where somebody resides. You might even find their possible neighbors with a location report.
Social profiles may include:
- Google Plus
- Dating profiles
- Amazon accounts
- And much more
Social media is a great way to get a quick insight into someone’s personality. We all butter things up for the ‘gram, but what someone wants to show the world can give you an idea of whether they’re a good match or not.
Do they spew hateful bile on Twitter? Post selfies with a new bae every day on Instagram? Or perhaps you’ll discover that their Amazon wishlist is packed with books you’ve been wanting to read and now you’re pumped about your upcoming date!
And speaking of dates, SafeSwipe may reveal dating profiles they’ve been keeping on the side. If one of your friend’s is dating someone who you think is shady, just run a little recon by yourself and find out if they’re sneaking around behind your friend’s back.
2. How to Find Someone's Criminal Record
You may have heard that old saying, “trust, but verify.” If you’re using online dating platforms, those are words to live by.
A SafeSwipe report may also reveal other important dealbreakers. Getting involved with a cheater or someone with a mountain of debts could be emotionally and financially devastating. But getting involved with someone dangerous could be so much worse. That’s why you should always use SafeSwipe to get the real story — before you put yourself in a compromising situation.
What You Need to Find a Criminal Record:
In order to find someone’s criminal record, you need a name, phone number, or email address.
The best way to search is with a first and last name, but it’s also easy to look someone up with just a phone number.
After you’ve opened a report in SafeSwipe, use the right-hand navigation menu to jump ahead to the “Criminal” section, where you can find arrest records, criminal records, and any possible convictions.
Unfortunately, not every criminal has been caught and charged with an offense. But there are other ways to use SafeSwipe to find out if someone has troubling traits.
Todd Kohlhepp, the serial killer from South Carolina, was convicted of murdering seven people between 2003 and 2016.
At first glance, he appears to be a regular guy ...
Until you check out his Amazon profile ...
And begin reading through his purchased items and product reviews ...
It’s believed that Kohlhepp’s lawyer has since taken down the most incriminating reviews, but you can still view other disturbing reviews on his Amazon account:
If somebody gives you the heebie-jeebies, don’t leave any stone unturned on their SafeSwipe report.
You never know what you might find.
3. Learn More About Someone With a Reverse Phone Lookup
So, you have some digits.
Maybe they belong to the attractive bartender you met at your local watering hole, or perhaps you’re already in a relationship, and you’re worried about late-night texts that your significant other is receiving.

A phone report may contain the following information:

4. Online Dating Safety
According to eHarmony, 40 million single Americans are using online dating to find love. However, 53% of online daters have told a fib on their dating profile.
While the average dater might be willing to overlook a little white lie about someone’s income, some lies are more significant than others.
Nobody wants to think about the worst-case scenario when talking to a potential date. But despite the fact that many happy relationships are born from dating apps, there’s still a lot of risk when it comes to meeting strangers online.
Here are some of the questions any online dater should be asking themselves before meeting in real life:
- Could this person be a catfish or a scammer?
- Does this individual have a criminal record?
- Is this person really single?
Unfortunately, scams and catfishers run rampant online. Up to 10% of all dating profiles are fake.
While a criminal record isn’t necessarily a dealbreaker, it’s wise to be cautious if your date has been convicted of a sex crime or has a history of domestic violence.
As for cheaters online? One study found that 42% of people on Tinder already have a dating partner.
Is Online Dating Safe?
Experts predict that by 2040, up to 70% of couples will meet online. While early online dating may have been stigmatized, those days are already ancient history.
With more Americans joining online dating services every day, it’s almost guaranteed that if you’re not online dating, someone you know probably is!
But even though online dating comes with highs and lows, is it safe?
Here are a few scary statistics about the dark side of online dating:
- The number of online daters in the UK who reported first-date rape has risen six-fold in the last five years — and police fear this number is being underreported
- More than one in three women and more than one in four men in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime
- Revenge porn and blackmail have been repeatedly linked to online dating
While the chances of right-swiping on a serial killer are relatively low, the chances of meeting a creep online is highly likely for someone who habitually uses dating websites.
Here’s one real-world example. When one online dater met 30-year-old Giuseppe Garibaldi, everything seemed fine. They dated casually and were occasionally intimate. What she didn’t know was that Garibaldi was secretly recording her during their intimate encounters.
When the woman broke off the relationship, Garibaldi flipped. The next day, the woman found her car keyed, and she began to receive threatening messages. Garibaldi then attempted to blackmail her with the explicit photos and videos he’d taken without her permission.
When she didn’t respond to his attempts to blackmail her, he sent the photographs and videos to her boss.
Luckily, Florida police quickly identified Garibaldi, and he was promptly arrested and charged with cyber harassment and stalking.
Before making an IRL connection with someone you met online, it’s imperative to scan through their SafeSwipe background report — even if they seem perfectly safe.
So many online dating horror stories begin when one party is rejected. By that point, they may know where you live and where you work … and, in some cases, they have already been inside your house.
With SafeSwipe, you can scan through their background in an instant. If they have a history of sexual violence, stalking, or domestic violence, it’s better to know before you ever let them into your life.
