Utilising patented calling technology by RIPTec, MySafeDate has recently launched its service to help make the dating scene a little safer.
We are all aware of how easy it is to give out your personal mobile number, especially with all the excitement of a first date, but advice is; Don't!
According to a study conducted by Bandwidth, a communications technology company, 58 percent of online daters surveyed regretted giving out their phone number to someone on an online dating site.
The reasons for these regrets are plastered all over the Internet like warning signs before a dangerous stretch of road. Tinder is packed with trolls who spend their time searching for a person to screenshot in an embarrassing moment, instead of a person to spend time with.
Compared to the other risks, prank messages though seem like the least of anyone’s worries. A woman on vacation in Australia fell to her death from a balcony, an incident that led to her 'date' being charged for murder. A slew of rape charges have stemmed from dates arranged through online dating services. In 2013, a flaw in Tinder’s security system revealed the physical location of users, and a quick search around the internet and you’ll find threads on forums (almost always hosted on pick-up artist sites) dedicated to tracking and stalking people (almost always women) through their online presence.
It’s no surprise then that Bandwidth’s survey found that 84 percent of respondents feel safer not giving out their real phone number.
The problem is, most dating apps require users to connect with an active number. The idea is to connect with people, after all. While most offer a way to shield this information through privacy settings, plenty of users are capable of keeping a polite front up just long enough to get a person’s number before revealing that they’re truly terrible.
MySafeDate solves this issue by allowing a user to have another phone number on their phone and to be able to make and receive calls on this number, thus keeping their personal mobile number private and remaining safe.
A user can keep their existing phone number, mobile phone and contract and simply add the service on top, just paying a small monthly line rental fee for each number registered.
Buying numbers is really easy. Simply select a number from any City and once registered you will, instantly be able to make and receive calls on that new number without revealing your personal mobile number.
It's simple to get started taking less than 60 seconds and without any complicated account setup, usernames, passwords or pins. You can even try the service for FREE. Simply enter promotion code 'safe1' when asked and you will get 2 months line rental and 30 minutes of calling totally free.

“RIPDialer was created out of the belief that the ‘phone’ part of the smartphone is not; smart, business savvy, social, or privacy-aware. We communicate using our phones in more situations than ever before, but using one personal phone number for everything or having to carry around multiple phones is ludicrous". said RIPTec founder, Mark Trowbridge.
"We solved the problem several years ago of keeping your mobile phone number more private and secure by providing users with reliable, extra phone numbers all usable across the mobile GSM network, and we are delighted that MySafeDate has found another great use for the service".
