Remember precaution is better than cure. Always take the necessary steps to ensure your safety and follow these tips to help you stay safe:
Get to know the other person before you meet him or her in person.
ZoMatch does not conduct criminal background checks on users, so you MUST conduct your own research and due-diligence and take all necessary precaution even after getting to know the other person.
It is important that you do not reveal your contact information, address, and any other personal information unless you really are comfortable with and truly get to know the other person.
Always meet in public.
Beware of anyone who suggests meeting in a secluded or remote place.

Never meet at your or the other person's residence or in a remote, secluded, or private location.
Always tell close friend(s) or family member(s) of your meeting plans.
Clearly convey to your friend and family members the name and background of who you are meeting, where you will be meeting and when you will be ending that meeting and returning.
Never go to such meeting without your phone. You MUST bring your phone with you.
If possible, arrange to meet someplace close by a friend or family member's work or residence location; or have a friend or family member in close vicinity of your meeting.
Be in control of your transportation. Make certain that you transport or drive yourself to and from the meeting place.
Even if the person offers or volunteers to pick you up, under no circumstances do you want to be picked up or dropped back by the other person.
