Creating your online dating profile:
Never give personal information, such as: your social security number, phone number, credit card number or bank information, your work or home address, or even your Social Media contact information to people you don’t know or haven’t met in person.
Protect your profile:
Never share your password with anyone. And if you are on a public or shared computer, then be very cautious. Especially in public places make sure nobody sees or record your password or any other personal information. When using a public or shared computer, always make sure you log-out at the end of your session.
Note: MyTransgenderCupid will never ask you for your password. Any such communications should be reported immediately.
Even if the person claims to be in an emergency, never send any money to someone who you just met online or haven’t met in person. If someone you meet on My Transgender Cupid asks you for money, stop all communication and report him / her immediately.

When you going to meet in person:
First in-person meetings are exciting, but always take precautions and follow these guidelines to help you stay safe.
Always Meet and Stay in Public place
Make sure to meet in a public place during daylight hours. – never in a private or remote location and never at your date’s home or apartment. If your date pressures you, end the date and leave at once.
Tell Your Friends and Family Members of Your Plans
Inform a friend or family member of your plans and where you going to meet. Make sure you have your cell phone charged and have it with you at all times. And let a friend make a short phone call during the date.
Keep an eye on your drink
It doesn't matter what you are drinking, be it Vodka or water, don't leave your drink unattended. It is really common people might put something in your drink to make abuse of you. So always keep an eye on your drink.
