  • Never disclose sensitive personal information, such as your address, social security number (SSN), or financial details, to your new friends.
  • Only share your phone number or social media accounts when you feel comfortable and trust the person.
  • Take your time to get to know your new friends better before taking the conversation outside of Pdb.
  • Immediately report any suspicious or inappropriate behavior.



Protect Yourself From Scams And Fraud

Pdb team is committed to ensuring your safety and a great experience on Pdb. Here are some recommendations to help you stay protected from scams and fraud.

Firstly, stick to Pdb to chat. Pdb not only safeguards your conversations but also maintains a secure and respectful environment through a dedicated moderation team. If you come across any suspicious individuals among your matches, please promptly report them.

Secondly, exercise caution and stay vigilant for unusual behaviors. Identifying cyber scams or catfishing attempts is important.

Here are some indicators that someone might be catfishing: (continuously updated)

  1. Someone shares suspicious links. If someone sends you an unfamiliar link or an unusual web address, exercise caution and avoid clicking on it until you can verify its safety.
  2. Someone requests money. This behavior is highly unusual and inappropriate! If your matches ask you for money, regardless of the amount, kindly decline and report them. Remember, genuine individuals seeking new friendships would never engage in such peculiar and disrespectful actions!
  3. Immediate insistence on moving to another platform for chatting. It raises suspicion when someone insists on migrating to another platform right after matching. Please remain cautious and maintain your privacy until you feel comfortable sharing it.



How to Report Someone?

You have the option to report anyone who makes you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, even if you haven't talked with them.

To report someone from their profile:

  1. Go to the user's profile;
  2. Tap the ... button and select "Report & Block";
  3. Specify the reason for the report, provide any necessary evidence, and submit it.

Rest assured, reporting is completely anonymous. None of the information you provide will be disclosed to the individual you are reporting.



What Happens After I Report?

Upon submitting the report, Pdb takes the matter seriously and ensures a timely response. Our moderation team will diligently review the report within a maximum of 8 hours.

  • The reported account will be removed from your chat list and will no longer appear visible to you.
  • Rest assured, our team is diligently addressing the situation, and while you won't receive a specific follow-up message regarding the outcome, please be assured that appropriate actions will be taken.



Meeting Offline
