Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 14 February, 2017 – Nearly 70 percent of Australian online daters have had a negative online dating experience and put their safety and personal information at risk, according to new research from Norton by Symantec.The Norton Online Dating Survey reveals that while more than one in four people who try online dating successfully meet someone as a result, many online daters had been the targets of scams and fake identities with scammers using online dating as a way to trick people into handing over money or entering a false relationship.However, of those who take action, many choose to block messages (36 percent) or stop using the dating website or application altogether (35 percent).Interestingly, the majority of Australians find it hard to identify scammers (56 percent) and nearly 60 percent of Australians would like website/app owners to take more ownership for protecting them from the dangers of online dating.Symantec operates one of the world’s largest civilian cyber intelligence networks, allowing it to see and protect against the most advanced threats.

The majority of online daters (51 percent) lie by exaggerating or misrepresenting their online dating profiles – usually the touch up of a photo or some dramatic change in their profile information, to make them appear more appealing.Despite these risks, online daters are taking their chances at finding Mr. Right with almost half (45 percent) spending two or more hours on online dating sites every day.
