Safety Recommendations

Prebo brings groups together and our community is constantly growing.

 

With so many people on Prebo, user safety is a priority. We understand that meeting groups for the first time whether online, through an acquaintance or on an outing is intriguing and exciting. However, your safety is very important, and because you are in control of your Prebo experience, there are certain safety steps that you should follow while meeting new friends – both online and offline.

 

We ask you to read the tips and information below, and strongly urge you to follow these guidelines in the interest of your personal safety and well-being. However, you are always the best judge of your own safety, and these guidelines are not intended to be a substitute for your own judgment.

 

Online Behavior

Protect Your Finances & Never Send Money or Financial Information

Never respond to any request to send money, especially overseas or via wire transfer, and report it to us immediately – even if the person claims to be in an emergency. Wiring money is like sending cash: the sender has no protections against loss and it’s nearly impossible to reverse the transaction or trace the money.

 

Protect Your Personal Information

Never give personal information, such as: your social security number, credit card number or bank information, or your work to people you don’t know or haven’t met in person.

 

Note: Prebo will never send you an email asking for your username and password information. Any such communication should be reported immediately.

 

Be Web Wise

Block and report suspicious users. You can block and report concerns about any suspicious user anonymously at any time on Prebo – while swiping the grid or after you’ve matched. Keep conversations on the platform. Bad actors will try to move the conversation to text, personal email or phone conversations.

 

Report All Suspicious Behavior

Additionally, please report anyone who violates our terms of use.

 

Examples of terms of use violations include:

 

Asks you for money or donations

Requesting photographs.

Minors using the platform

Users sending harassing or offensive messages

Users behaving inappropriately after meeting in person

Fraudulent registration or profiles.

Spam or solicitation, such as invitations to call 1-900 numbers or attempts to sell products or services.

Offline Behavior

First group meetings are exciting and fun, but always take precautions and follow these guidelines to help you stay safe:

 

Get to Know the Other Person

Keep your communications limited to the platform and really get to know users online/using the app before meeting the group in person. Bad actors often push people to communicate off the platform immediately. It’s up to you to research and do your due diligence.

 

Always Meet in group

Prebo allows your group to meet other groups of friends, with the intent of expanding your friends in life. But always remember to be with your group when meeting new ones, and never act alone as an individual user. Be suspicious and report any user who acts as a group.

 

Tell Your Friends and Family Members of Your Plans

Inform a friend or family member of your plans and when and where you’re going. Make sure you have your cell phone charged and with you at all times.

 

Transport Yourself to and from the Meeting

You need to be independent and in control of your own transportation, especially in case things don’t work out. If you are going out and alcohol will be present in the gathering, always remember to have at least one designated driver per car.

 

Stay Sober

Consumption of alcohol and/or other drugs can impair your judgment and potentially put you in danger. It’s important to keep a clear mind and avoid anything that might place you at risk. Be aware that bad actors might try to take advantage of you by altering your beverage(s) with synthetic substances.

 

Health

Prebo welcomes everyone and empowers our community of users to create and cultivate friendships. An important aspect of any healthy friendship though – whether formed on Prebo or otherwise – is ensuring a respectful environment. And as a member of the Prebo community it is your responsibility to make sure you behave and treat everyone with respect and equality.
