How do registered sex offenders end up on dating apps?

A news article I recently found and felt perhaps it may shed some light on how ineffective government LAWS can be and how the internet really works. Only more of an indication that we need to be responsive and pro active. It may surprise you when you discover just how vulnerable you are from online predators and sex offenders.

In today’s Big Story podcast, the sex offender registries are public in the US, and they exist in part so that prospective partners can be aware of past crimes. But on many popular dating apps, being a registered sex offender isn’t a barrier to creating an account. An investigation in the United States found again and again that offenders—even some who used the apps to find their victims in the first place—could simply create a new account and keep going.

We know that screening is possible because at least one popular site does it. And the owners of that site and app own three other popular services…that don’t screen. So why not?

    That wen you pay the $1.99 for the report on who you are talking to and you FaceTime them or Skype them. Never meet people alone. This world is freaky as hell, also turn off your on snap chat because it shows you standing right out side your house. It like Google maps. Stay safe out there.
