Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 14 February, 2017 – Nearly 70 percent of Australian online daters have had a negative online dating experience and put their safety and personal information at risk, according to new research from Norton by Symantec.

The CR Survey also found that, among those hesitant to try online dating, 9 percent of men and 21 percent of women are reluctant because they knew someone who had a bad experience.
According to the survey, another reason why consumers are concerned about online dating is because they fear being scammed – 41 percent of men and 56 percent of women cite this fear.
