A ‘catfish’ is someone who is pretending to be someone else online.

It is possible to experience catfishing via dating apps in the following ways:

  1. A person tricks you into thinking they are someone they’re not.

  2. A person steals your identity (your personal details, photos etc) and uses this to catfish other people.

Unfortunately, catfishing can happen pretty easily on dating apps. It can be hard to recognise a catfish at times, so it’s super important to be cautious when connecting with people online. Make sure to check out their profiles to see whether they are genuine or not. You could get a friend or someone else you trust to help you out with this.

There are also other warning signs to look out for. Netsafe offers great advice on how to spot a catfish, and what to do if you have been affected by catfishing. Check this out below:
