Microsoft Suggests Ending IE 11 Before It Gets Disabled

Organizations waiting for Microsoft to “permanently disable” the Internet Explorer 11 browser should just end it beforehand, if possible.

The IE 11 browser can be removed by using a Group Policy option called “Disable Internet Explorer 11 as a standalone browser.” This option was described in a Microsoft document dated Aug. 31, 2022, which was cited in this Wednesday Microsoft announcement on the topic.

Microsoft has already dropped product support for IE 11 in certain Windows versions that follow the semiannual channel update model. IE 11 is unsupported as of June 15, 2022 for Windows 10 semiannual channel releases, for instance. Microsoft plans to permanently disable IE 11 for those Windows 10 users via its Windows Update service, but it’ll happen in a phased-approach manner, varying in its timing across organizations.

IE 11 Lives On in IE Mode
Windows 10 long-term servicing channel users, on the other hand, have IE 11 support in the form of an “IE Mode” emulation capability until Jan. 9, 2029. A Microsoft FAQ on the topic includes a table that shows such IE Mode support nuances.

Microsoft’s Wednesday announcement was largely an exhortation toward organizations that they don’t have to wait for Windows Update to remove the IE 11 browser. They can actively end it via Group Policy if they think things won’t break.

The announcement described the Windows Update removal process as instituting a “redirection phase,” where users are directed toward using the Microsoft Edge browser instead of IE 11. This gradual approach is conceived as making things easier for organizations that are stuck on IE 11 technologies.

“Given its gradual nature, the redirection phase is optimal for those organizations who are not entirely confident yet of the state of IE retirement readiness across their estate,” the Wednesday announcement indicated.

The Edge browser can emulate old IE behaviors via Microsoft’s IE Mode capability, if IE Mode has been configured beforehand.

It’s IE Mode support that IT pros need to track if they have a need to maintain the older IE browser technologies. In a slight of hand, Microsoft switched IE support from being based on the Windows OS lifecycle to being based on how long IE Mode is supported per OS. The table in Microsoft’s FAQ is the true guide on gauging such support.

Ditch IE 11 If You Can
Microsoft is “strongly” advising organizations ready to dispense with IE 11 to use the “Disable Internet Explorer 11 as a standalone browser” Group Policy option to get rid of the browser.

Here’s how that advice was phrased:

Instead of waiting for the Windows Update to happen at a future date, we strongly encourage those organizations that have set up IE mode and that feel ready to transition off IE to use the Disable IE Policy to control when and how IE is disabled. We suggest first rolling out the Disable IE Policy to small sets of devices to reduce risk, should there be any hidden pockets of IE dependent sites, and then rolling out to your entire organization once you’ve determined any missed sites. Since many organizations have end of year IT freezes and holiday time off, we recommend applying the Disable IE Policy by November 1, 2022 to avoid surprises and business disruption in case IE dependent websites were missed.

The problems encountered after ditching IE 11 could be very specific and unexpected, though, for organizations.

For instance, one person described having problems adding videos in PowerPoint after disabling IE 11, per this Feb. 9, 2021 Microsoft forum complaint. A Microsoft spokesperson responding to that complaint had suggested back then that “for the purpose of playing videos in PowerPoint, Internet Explorer 11 is required to be on your computer,” adding that there was “no replacement for now.”

Jetstream2 Cloud HPC System Enters Production

Jetstream2, a collaborative cloud HPC system spread across five institutions, has entered full production following an early operations phase that began earlier this year. The computer — which now serves a broad research community — delivers an aggregate eight peak petaflops.

“Jetstream is a cloud!” proclaims a red alert box on the system’s overview page. “While it shares many common features and abilities with other research computing resources, it is not a traditional High Performance Computing (HPC) or High Throughput Computing (HTC) environment.”

Indeed, Jetstream2’s hardware — supported by an NSF grant — is split into five segments, all built by Dell: a primary system at Indiana University Bloomington (416 compute nodes, 90 GPU nodes, and 96 storage nodes) and four smaller systems at Arizona State University, Cornell University, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) and the University of Hawai’i (each with 8 compute nodes and 2 GPU nodes). Additional partners for the system include Johns Hopkins University, the University of Arizona and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research.

Jetstream2’s standard compute nodes (of which there are 384 total) are each equipped with dual AMD Epyc “Milan” 7713 CPUs and 512GB of memory, while 32 additional large-memory compute nodes with a terabyte of memory each. The 90 total GPU nodes have the same CPUs, 512GB of memory and quadruple Nvidia A100 GPUs. All told: around eight aggregate peak petaflops of cloud compute power supported by 17PB of storage.

As the name implies, Jetstream2 follows in the footsteps of Jetstream, which launched in 2016, consisting of 640 Intel Haswell-based nodes split between IU and TACC with an additional deployment of 16 development nodes at the University of Arizona.

“Like its predecessor, Jetstream2 will continue to tear down barriers to discovery,” said John Fonner, director of special projects at TACC and one of the PIs on the Jetstream2 award, in an interview with TACC’s Faith Singer. “It will provide flexible advanced computing capabilities for researchers that may not otherwise have sufficient resources at their institutions. And it gives educators a consistent, accessible compute environment that they can bring into the classroom.”

Prior to entering production this summer, Jetstream2 went through an early operations phase in February, during which time it was integrated into the NSF’s ACCESS program (Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem: Services & Support), the successor to the popular XSEDE program.

“We intend Jetstream2 to be a democratizing force within the NSF ecosystem, allowing researchers and educators access to cutting-edge resources regardless of project scale,” said David Hancock, director of advanced cyberinfrastructure for University Information Technology Services at Indiana University.

SDAIA, SCCC Sign MoU to Promote Digital Transformation

The Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Saudi Cloud Computing Company, the leading provider of cloud computing services and digital transformation in the Kingdom, to join efforts to promote digital transformation and adopt the concept of cloud computing on a larger scale in the Kingdom.

This came on the sidelines of the Global Summit on Artificial Intelligence in its second edition, held at the King Abdulaziz International Conference Center in Riyadh from 13-15 September, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

Assistant Director of the National Information Center for Cloud Computing Eng. Nawaf Al-Sahan said that digital transformation in cloud computing requires a change of concepts, adding that this partnership comes to play this important role, by establishing training programs and exchanging experts, which will enhance opportunities to improve the skills of SDAIA staff and the staff of other government agencies.

SPA quoted him as saying that the Saudi Cloud Computing Company is the exclusive partner of Alibaba Cloud in the Kingdom.

He added that this cooperation will give the ability to use Alibaba’s cloud services in building and developing the SDAIA-affiliated “DEEM” cloud.

Cybercrime victims reluctant to report cases, say police

Cybercrime victims reluctant to report cases, say police
(Representational image) Cybercrime officials say people who were duped on social media and e-commerce platforms are not taking legal help, and don’t seriously until a considerable amount is siphoned off from their bank accounts.

Hyderabad: Several victims of cybercrime, which is on an upward graph, are reluctant to approach the police. Most of those who take that crucial step forward and approach the police are mostly the ones who have lost large sums of money, with several other incidents of cyber fraud going unreported.

Lack of awareness is one major factor that prevents many from reporting cases, according to police officials, who also point out that the efforts to educate people against cyber frauds are helping people from cities while victims in rural areas are still not aware or are hesitant.

Senior cybercrime officials say people who were duped on social media and online shopping platforms mostly do not look for legal help. They do not take it seriously until a considerable amount is siphoned off from their bank accounts during frauds.

“In most cases, either due to illiteracy or lack of awareness on cyber frauds and stigma in approaching police, people do not come to us. In some instances, if the damage is little or if they think it is not easy to get back the stolen money, they avoid the police,” a senior official said, attributing the rise in cybercrime incidents to excessive use of mobile phones and gadgets by people of all ages.

“Though a provision store or a vegetable and meat market or a dairy parlour is nearby, instead of fetching what we need by going there, we are used to placing orders online. From the biggest of purchases to the smallest ones, we are depending more on online transactions. This is one of the major reasons for being vulnerable to cybercrime,” an official said.

With increasing dependency on online transactions, fraudsters too were coming up with novel ways to dupe people. Police advised citizens to avoid talking to people who call them saying they are executives of banks, software companies, vehicle loans, house loans, loan app firms, etc.

“It is better to disconnect the call if it is unwanted. And in case you fall in that trap, it is advised to approach the local cybercrime police or lodge a complaint with the National Cybercrime Reporting Portal,” the official said.

Another senior official from the cybercrime wing said fraudsters were still targeting people from rural areas with tricks including lottery fraud, Aadhar card updates, and so on. Most of the victims were elders, women, and the uneducated.

What Modern Humans Can Learn From Ancient Software

Did you know that you can, right now, for free, go to Archive.org, the great online library of all things, and load up within your web browser an ancient, decrepit emulated computer—a DOS box from 1991, a black-and-white Mac, a green-and-black Apple II—and run the WordPerfect of yore, boot old HyperCard stacks, or use 1979’s VisiCalc as God intended?

Perhaps this does not seem miraculous to you. Fair. Moore’s law has taken us from 250 billion or so CPU churns per year on the earliest Macs to a quintillion potential clock cycles on a good gaming PC, a healthy 4,000,000X increase. Anyone with sense might reasonably ask, What? Why use a shiny new computer to run old spreadsheets? And I might nod and shrug, but inside I am a translucent plastic iMac of emotion. Because it is, I think, important to emulate.

You can learn history by reading books and visiting museums; you might even walk a battlefield. But you can’t understand software from screenshots any more than you can understand music from album reviews, or baseball from box scores, or Rome from watching gladiator movies, much as you might enjoy gladiator movies. When you boot up a virtual version of a Macintosh from 30 years ago, you share in the lived experiences of millions of ancient humans. You can see how they spent their paltry CPU budget to fill their low-resolution screens.

You learn their priorities. They started batch processing, running programs as lumps of code, but as soon as CPUs allowed, they made them interactive, alive. Even if those were just green numbers on a screen, à la VisiCalc. As soon as they could, early users went post-textual, pictographic—pointing at things with the mouse, Spartan virtue abandoned for Athenian excess. Later, in Moore’s glut, we spent new CPU cycles on color or networking or sound, progressing from beeps to playing CDs to MP3s.

Emulation reminds me to ask myself whether the computing experience is always getting better. I’m writing this in Google Docs so my editor’s little round avatar head can peek in and make sure I don’t miss my deadline for once, but I’d prefer to write it in WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS, which was the greatest word processor ever—a blank screen illuminated with only letters and numbers, offering just enough bold and italics to keep things interesting. I remember WP51 the way a non-nerd might remember a vintage Mustang. You could just take that thing out and go, man.

But it’s more than a museum trip for self-enrichment. Emulation forces me to strip back to basics—to remember that, for most people, computers are tools, not a lifestyle. Whenever I buy a computer, one of the first things I do is set up my software emulation environments, which now involve about a terabyte of old disk images and various operating systems. Keeping that history so close helps me accept the horrible truth that everything novel in our industry was actually invented by a group of Californians sitting in beanbag chairs during the Carter administration. What seems permanent today is as fleeting as, well, Twitter’s Fleets. GAFA becomes FAANG becomes MAMAA. There will be new acronyms before long.

Recently, i made the jump from software-based emulation to specialized hardware. I bought a little black metal box, the size of three packs of playing cards, that contains what’s called a field-programmable gate array—shape-shifter circuitry that takes on characteristics of other devices. It’s purely for simulation of retro machines, including the Commodores Amiga and 64, Atari STs, 486s, and various gaming platforms, which for most people are the main event (Neo Geos, Game Boys, Atari Lynx, all the way back to Spacewar! on the PDP-1).

The box is called the MiSTer. It’s not a consumer product but rather a folk-created reference platform: If you buy these parts and assemble them, then download some free software and plug in an HDMI card, it becomes an old machine. For this privilege one pays around $600. It gives me the same joy I imagine people who are into expensive headphones or collect vintage vinyl feel—that sense of something being more real. The cores simulate everything, all the little glitches and weirdnesses and timings that make a chip a chip, that make the mouse move like you remember. Watching old code run on a modern big, sharp screen is hyperreal. Like a Proustian madeleine, but made by Cinnabon.

‘New mobile banking virus on prowl in Indian cyberspace’

A new mobile banking ‘Trojan’ virus — SOVA — which can stealthily encrypt an Android phone for ransom and is hard to uninstall is targeting Indian customers, the country’s federal cyber security agency said in its latest advisory. The virus has upgraded to its fifth version after it was first detected in the Indian cyberspace in July, it said.

“It has been reported to CERT-In that Indian banking customers are being targeted by a new type of mobile banking malware campaign using SOVA Android Trojan.The first version of this malware appeared for sale in underground markets in September 2021 with the ability to harvest user names and passwords via key logging, stealing cookies and adding false overlays to a range of apps,” the advisory said.

SOVA, it said, was earlier focusing on countries like the US, Russia and Spain, but in July 2022 it added several other countries, including India, to its list of targets.

The latest version of this malware, according to the advisory, hides itself within fake Android applications that show up with the logo of a few famous legitimate apps like Chrome, Amazon, NFT (non-fungible token linked to crypto currency) platform to deceive users into installing them.

#1. Senior FriendFinder – Overall Best Senior Dating Site

Senior FriendFinder is a senior dating app with over 400,000 active members, and it is growing daily. The app allows users to find new friends and romantic companions and chat and email on the website. 

Users can browse profiles for free but must upgrade for messaging, chatting, and live video calling. Seniors are using this app to connect with other people in their age group from all over the world.


Membership Features

Senior FriendFinder has many of the most important features for seniors looking to date online. 

The site identifies itself as being, “the number 1 senior dating website,” and they really mean it. The focus is entirely on their users’ happiness in a relationship. 

When you sign up on the site, they match you up with seven to ten other single members based on who they think you might like or be compatible with. 

It makes sure members are serious about finding someone by requiring them to fill out detailed profiles, including their interests and hobbies. It is not like signing up for an ordinary social networking site where anyone can make a profile without any real personal investment.

The site’s unique membership features help ensure there is no shortage of people on the site looking for exactly what you want and need in a partner.

Senior FriendFinder currently has over one million active members worldwide. Most of them come from the U.S., Canada, and Australia. 

The popularity of this website can be attributed to its main features and special tools designed specifically for singles over 50 years old. 

For example, Senior FriendFinder’s unique personality test will help members identify their personality traits, likes, and dislikes so they can better find compatible dates. In addition, this feature helps find love and understand oneself better to avoid awkward situations.

It is so hard to know where to start on the internet when you are looking for a friend, a date, or a companion.

But, you cannot go wrong with Senior FriendFinder. With thousands of members in cities all across the country, you will have your choice of companions in your area.

Sign-Up Process

Signing up for the dating service is free and easy — simply fill out a short profile describing yourself and what you are looking for in a partner (e.g., friendship, love, marriage), then browse other members’ profiles to find people you might like to meet. 

When you have found someone who interests you, send them an email or instant message to start chatting about your shared interests and possible dates. 

If you have found a compatibility match but are not interested in pursuing that person any further — for example, if their profile does not match your preferences — dismiss their profile in your search results.

A good profile is important because it allows you to effectively represent yourself and your interests and improve your chances of finding someone who shares similar values. 

It is important for members to fill out their profiles because it gives other members a chance to get to know them better before deciding whether or not they want to message them.

Site Reputation

Reputation is everything when it comes to dating in the internet age. The way your prospective partner sees you is a direct reflection of how people see your dating site. 

Sites like Senior FriendFinder are no longer just a place to find other people with similar interests. They are your first and only point of contact before meeting face to face. This means you must ensure your chosen site has a solid reputation.

Senior FriendFinder uses only the most accurate and up-to-date contact information available from its members. This means you will be communicating with the real people you encounter on the site rather than bots or people who do not even exist.

Every senior member must go through an application process before they can join, which involves entering their desired username and password, email address, date of birth, and gender (which helps screen out children), and uploading at least one photo ID. 

The site then verifies that the person exists by running what is essentially an extensive background check. This helps ensure there are no catfishers or scammers on the site.

Privacy and Security

The popularity of Senior FriendFinder has to do with its attention to detail when it comes to creating a space that attracts older singles. 

First and foremost, the site has been established as a safe online community where senior singles can meet other mature people without worrying about privacy or safety issues. 

With an extensive screening process in place (all members must provide government-issued identification numbers), Senior FriendFinder can guarantee that all members are who they say they are, enabling them to trust their fellow members without hesitation.

When using Senior FriendFinder’s best senior dating site, it is important to note that they have ample privacy and security measures in place to protect your data. 

The company uses 256-bit SSL encryption software to keep your profile and personal information safe while you are online. 

You can also rest assured that this protection extends beyond just the website. Senior FriendFinder understands the importance of keeping your data secure and has apps for both iOS and Android devices as well as an active mobile-ready chat system that allows you to connect with other members on the go.

#2. SeniorMatch – Most Popular Site for Successful Serious Relationships

SeniorMatch is one of the best and most effective senior dating sites around. It is a website for singles in their 50s who want to meet people who share their personalities and interests. 

It provides a large inventory of potential matches so you can find just the right match for you.


Membership Features

Many online dating sites charge a monthly fee, but SeniorMatch does not. It is free to sign up, search for other members, and send winks, but premium membership features are available to those who pay. 

The site offers three levels of membership, including the free level, which lets users browse through profiles and communicate with other members via winks. 

It also allows users to recommend other members to friends, view their browsing history, and block out profiles they have viewed.

Sign-Up Process

To start with, you can sign up for free and browse through profiles, photos, and interests just like any other site. But, to get access to all the advanced features, such as contacting other members who are interested in you, you will need to upgrade to a Premium Membership. 

This is similar to many other sites but with two important distinctions: at most sites, once you are a Premium member, you are pretty much forced to upgrade to a paid subscription if you want all the bells and whistles. 

But on SeniorMatch, not only can you enjoy the full benefits of the Premium membership for as long as you like, but if for some reason you decide you do not like it or are not using it anymore, there is no charge for canceling your account.

Site Reputation

SeniorMatch is one of the most helpful and trusted websites in the world. It has been helping singles connect for over ten years and has brought together some of the most like-minded people in their niche.

SeniorMatch is highly rated and has been around for more than ten years, so they are serious about their service. 

They focus on building long-term relationships through the site, which sets them apart from other free dating sites that have a reputation for being sketchy or untrustworthy.

Not only are they serious about their service, but they also have a great reputation for honesty and integrity. 

Privacy and Security

Security of your private information is essential to choosing a dating site. That is why we take every precaution to ensure SeniorMatch is as safe as possible. 

They use 256-bit encryption, so their site is just as secure as online banking and other financial websites.

Site privacy is a top priority at SeniorMatch, and their security measures are designed to ensure your personal information stays safe and secure.

#3. SeniorSizzle – Trusted Dating Site for Single Adults

SeniorSizzle is a modern dating site designed specifically for mature people. It is the best place for you to meet like-minded singles seeking flirtatious online fun, companionship, and other steamy connections. 

Their members are looking for hot flings, not long-term relationships. See why everyone is flocking to SeniorSizzle.


Membership Features

Safety is of the utmost importance when it comes to online dating. Sites like SeniorSizzle use background checks and emails to verify every member’s identity before they are allowed to register. 

Every senior has their own unique story about what makes them who they are today, but great sites will help members present themselves in an attractive way by providing plenty of space to write about themselves in detail. 

They also provide helpful tools in order to make it easier for you to find matches based on specific criteria like age range, location, and interests. 

Sign-Up Process

SeniorSizzle is a senior dating site that allows members to upload photos, post blogs, and send winks to other members. Like many other dating sites, SeniorSizzle is free to join and use for members looking for friends or romantic partners. 

If you are an ambitious SeniorSizzle user and you would like access to more powerful features for the price of a good cup of coffee, you will have to pay for a membership.

Moreover, SeniorSizzle’s sign-up process could not be simpler. All you need to do is provide some basic information about yourself and your preferences, and then you are ready to start browsing through profiles and sending winks.

Site Reputation

Reputation is one of the most important factors in choosing a senior dating site. 

A dedicated reputation management team at SeniorSizzle reviews every aspect of a site, including every member’s profile and correspondence, looking for red flags in everything from the content and the pictures to the behavior. 

They work to give members peace of mind that they are on a safe, engaging platform that will not jeopardize their privacy or their safety. In addition, SeniorSizzle makes sure to protect its members from other users who display any malicious behaviors.

Privacy and Security

This site offers members a range of security features, including SSL encryption on all pages with personal data (e.g., your profile), an anti-scraping tool to combat identity theft, and a photo verification process that allows users to confirm their identities through self-uploaded photos of themselves. 

Encryption is particularly important when it comes to transmitting any sort of sensitive data (credit card numbers, social security numbers, etc.) over the internet. 

A site that does not use encryption can expose your information to hackers and other opportunists who could use this information for their own purposes. 

The fact that they have taken extra steps to protect members is a testament to their dedication and commitment.

Factors You Need to Know to Stay Safe on These Platforms

In order to find the best senior dating site, you need to make sure you follow some important factors.

Pick a Reputable Site

As a senior adult, you may not be looking for serious relationships on the best senior dating sites, but you still need to be cautious of the people you are talking to. 

It is important to have some idea of who you are talking to before getting involved in something potentially dangerous. 

We have done a lot of research and recommend that you choose a reputable site to find the best senior dating site.

There are many senior dating sites on the internet, and you can search for them by keyword or brand name. Choose a reputable site that has a good reputation in the community.

A reputable site will have lots of members and should be easy to navigate.

A reputable site will also have a money-back guarantee if you are not happy with their service. Search online reviews to find out if other customers had a good experience using the site’s customer service.

A reputable site will have clearly stated rules about protecting your privacy and identity when using the service. In addition, the site should provide you with information on how they do this, such as SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology, which provides security by scrambling your personal information before it travels over the internet.

Choosing the best senior dating site is crucial, as it could be the first step in meeting your soulmate. Always make sure that you research the site’s reputation, read customer reviews, and check for any red flags. 

A reputable site will offer you a wide variety of search filters to help you find exactly what you are looking for in a potential partner. 

However, it is also important to remember that even on the best dating sites, people can pretend to be someone they are not, so do a background check before agreeing to meet anyone in person. 

Privacy and Security

A senior dating website is a good way to meet and get to know people in a safe environment. However, there are many sites available, so it can be difficult to pick the right one. 

One of the most important features you should look for is privacy and security. Ensure your personal information is protected and your identity is private and anonymous. 

The best site will also have a clean, easy-to-use interface with a wide variety of search tools, so it is easy to find someone who has what you are looking for in terms of age, location, interests, and more.

The majority of online criminals are after your financial information. Most people do not even realize they are at risk of identity theft or credit card fraud until it is too late. Make sure the site you choose is secure and will protect your private information, like your social security number, address, and banking info.

The best senior dating sites should be free from viruses or malware, which can infect your computer while you are trying to find love online. 

The most commonly-used senior dating sites have been thoroughly tested for bugs and safely operate on the web. But if you meet a potential partner through an ad for a “safe” website on another site, it is possible that it may try to infect your computer with spyware or other malicious software. 

With the senior dating sites mentioned here, your privacy is protected by their policies. The sites have security measures in place to protect the personal information of their users. They also have built-in features that help keep you safe while you use their services. 

You will also find that most of these senior sites have very strict rules, from inappropriate behavior to keeping things professional between users. These rules make these sites much safer places for you to meet new people than free social networking sites.

Keep Your Personal Information Private

When it comes to dating sites for seniors, privacy is a very important aspect of the user experience. However, there are other factors that users need to take into consideration when choosing the best senior dating site for them. 

The privacy policy of a site should be clearly stated, as many seniors are concerned with the security of their personal information. 

They want to make sure they can choose how much information they want to share with other members on the site and what kind of information they do or do not want to share. 

The privacy policies should be easy to read and understand so seniors can decide which site will work best for them.

With senior dating sites on the rise, it is important to ensure you are using a site that keeps your personal information secure.

It is important to consider various factors when it comes to online security, and not all senior dating sites have the same level of protection for your information.

As your personal information (such as your home address and social security number) becomes more accessible online, you need to be aware of what you are putting out there. 

Once your information is out there in the digital world, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to remove it from public view. Therefore, you want to protect yourself as much as possible from potential identity theft or other crimes due to others controlling your sensitive information.

Avoid Clicking on Random Links

When it comes to online dating, the worst-case scenario is an encounter with a scam artist who is out to rip you off. 

But, the true dangers of online dating are the people you do not know who may or may not be safe. 

When you are new to an online dating site, you might not be sure what precautions to take, but there are some key things you should do when selecting your first dating site and when interacting with people on that site. 

The first rule of any online dating site is always to be cautious about clicking on links in messages or emails. 

Scammers can use these to get people to give up their personal information or install malicious software on their computers. 

You should never click on links in messages from people you do not know well. That picture could have been stolen from someone else, and the message could have been written by a criminal trying to take over your computer.

In order to stay safe when signing up for a senior dating site, it is important to avoid clicking on random links and stick to reputable sites. 

If you are looking for the best senior dating sites, sign up for those that have been established for years, have good reviews, and allow you to create an account that requires a legitimate email address.

Only Meet a Person You Are Comfortable With

Many seniors use online dating sites as a way to meet other singles in their area or even from around the world. 

The internet has made it much easier to find someone who is compatible with you. In addition, you do not have to spend time going out and meeting different people. 

All you need to do is join an online dating service and start looking through profiles until you find someone you like.

If you are looking for love online, it is important to keep in mind that you will want to choose a dating site that caters to your specific needs. 

Some sites are aimed at seniors who enjoy a more active lifestyle, while others are geared toward those who prefer to spend their time relaxing with friends and family. 

Whatever your personality type, there is sure to be a dating site out there for you.

As a general rule, it is better to meet the person you are interested in on the site rather than randomly in public. 

To find who is behind those pictures or profiles created by scammers, you can use reverse image search tools like TinEye or Google image search to see where else an image has been used online. This will usually reveal whether it is actually a person’s real picture or not.

Never agree to meet someone you do not feel comfortable with. So many great people are waiting to find love online, but you must use caution when deciding where to look for them.

Detailed Profiles

The best senior dating sites give you the most control over your experience and allow you to choose the level of detail you want to provide in your profile. 

In detailed profiles, you can choose your age range, whether you are looking for a long-term relationship or a casual date, if you want someone with children, and if you want someone from a specific origin. 

While sometimes it is not possible to be completely specific about what you are looking for on these sites, choosing at least some options will help narrow down your search and filter out people with whom you will not have much in common. 

It also helps you avoid getting messages from people who are not actually interested in the same things as you.

All of them should have detailed profiles that include information about the person’s hobbies, interests, family life, education, and employment history. The more information they include in their profile, the better your chances will be of meeting someone who is right for you.

Customer Service

The best senior dating sites offer customer service that is available in multiple languages and at multiple times so you can get help whenever you need it. 

Some of the best senior dating sites offer support 24/7, but many others limit their hours to office hours. Make sure to check out how long customer service is open for your peace of mind. 

It is important to note that some of the best senior dating sites with great customer service are very professional. However, they may not be able to give you advice on what to do on a date or what they think your best options are. 

Their goal is to provide assistance with technical issues and process complaints efficiently. If you want advice on which site is right for you, make sure to ask friends who have used them before.

Customer Reviews

When it comes to senior dating sites, you need to be aware of the hundreds of options available to you. It is easy to get carried away with all the choices and use up a lot of your time comparing them all. 

Fortunately, there are some tools that can help you find the right one without having to spend too much time on research. One of these tools is customer reviews.

Checking customer reviews for any given site is a great way to get a sense of what kinds of quality issues the people who go there experience, or whether someone else has already experienced the particular issue you are worried about. 

If you find out that a user’s experience at another site was similar to yours, you can use this data to decide if you would like to try logging in yourself or if perhaps it is time to look elsewhere. 

Many online review sites will have both positive and negative reviews posted by members of each site, so you can really get a sense of what is working well and what is not.

Choosing a senior dating site that has been reviewed and certified by an independent third party is important. 

First, it means the site is putting its best foot forward at the outset, and it is not trying to hide anything. It also means that the site’s most prominent features will be up-to-date and well-suited to its user base. 

Finally, it means that a third party is vouching for the site’s quality, which can help you feel more confident in your selection. 

It is important to check each individual review of a site before deciding if it would be a good fit for you. 

FAQs: Online Dating Sites

Q: What is senior dating?

Senior dating is designed for those over 50 with demands and preferences vastly different from those of young adults. 

Some who are older could be seeking a possible partner, while others might just want to get together with a couple of friends for a movie date or other activity.

The chances of meeting new people through dating apps are practically astounding. We frequently liken it to dropping a lot of fishing hooks into a swamp. 

Whichever line you choose to share, you do it while not knowing if it would be popular. Thinking about the potential outcomes is exciting.

Q: Should a senior like me be alright to begin dating?

It should not matter how old you are if you want to begin dating. Particularly in this day of the internet, nobody should ever feel lonely. Nevertheless, it could be intimidating to start dating as you become older. 

Only enter the dating scene after determining who you enjoy spending time with.

Q: Which details should I disclose to others, and which should I keep confidential?

Although the other users will be curious to learn more about you, you can select what information to share and what to keep to yourself. 

While discussing your likes and dislikes is typically enjoyable, confidential information like your residential address or banking details should remain secret.

Q: When should you actually go on a date?

Real-world data will, obviously, depend on the individuals involved, and it may also depend on how at ease you are with the other person. 

Your ability to engage in physical contact is also crucial. Unfortunately, this question simply does not have a predetermined solution.

Every person is unique. When you believe the moment is genuinely ideal, go on a date in person. Always remember to take your first date out in public. Keep yourself protected and safeguard your private information.
