UrSafe becomes latest ODA Associate

The ODA is pleased to announce that UrSafe has become an Associate.

Dating services have used advances in technology to help protect users when checking profiles, moderating services, working to block frauds and prevent under-age users and give their millions of users a service they value and enjoy. Today technologies can also help protect people when out on a date meeting someone new in person.

Smartphones have locational information and can allow someone to alert family, friends or a support or emergency service if required. The UrSafe app enables you to activate friends and family real time location-sharing before your date, so your loved ones can make sure you get home safely.

George Kidd, ODA Chief Executive:

“UrSafe are an innovator in this field as part of the community of dating services and technology providers who are committed to making dating a great and safe experience. We welcome advancements in technology which allows users to protect themselves while on a date.”

Anthony Oyogoa, CEO and Co-Founder of UrSafe:

“Technology has revolutionized the world we live in – there is an app for almost everything. But the personal safety space has largely been left untouched by innovators despite the evolving threats many people face every day.

“We created UrSafe to adapt to individuals’ modern safety and security needs regardless of who they are, what they do, or where they live to empower everyone to live a life without fear.”

About the ODA

ODA Associate status is available to businesses that share the ODA’s objectives for high standards and a healthy market. Associates are not “members”, but their services and actions must never bring the reputation of the ODA or industry into disrepute but should reflect a shared commitment to standards and user trust. More information about becoming an ODA Associate can be found here.

The ODA was set up in 2014 to develop and maintain standards that give users assurance and ensure businesses trade responsibly. It seeks also to inform policy makers and to promote messages to users that minimise the risk of harm.
