Tips for staying safe

As FaceCheck makes its initial promise to protect you from online fakes, your privacy and safety is on top of our mind. That said, there are some steps you can take to make sure you stay extra safe!

Privacy, Community, Reporting

Privacy Settings: Check your privacy settings to choose who can send you Check’s.

Community Guidelines: Read up and follow our Community Guidelines, and try to help your friends follow them too!

Report Safety Concerns: If you come across something upsetting, or if anyone asks you to do something inappropriate or that makes you uncomfortable, please report the Check to us — and talk to your parent or a trusted adult about it.

Harrasment

Bullying: If someone is bullying or harassing you, report the action to us and talk to your parent or a trusted adult about it. You can also always block that person and leave any group chat where bullying is taking place.

Additional Help: Check out NetSmartz for more information on cyberbullying. FaceCheck is also partnered with the Crisis Text Line to provide additional support and resources to FaceCheck’ers in the US. Just text KIND to 741741 to chat with a live, trained crisis counselor at Crisis Text Line. This service is free and available 24/7!

International resources are available through our Support site.

Passwords

Password Security: Keep your password safe and don’t share it with any other people, applications, or websites under any circumstances. We also suggest using a different password for every service you use.

Age Minimum: FaceCheck was made for people 13 and older. If you have a child under 13 using FaceCheck, please reach out to us with your child’s username and verification of your relationship. We’ll see what we can do!​​​​​​
