New Delhi: From doing an online search to sharing live location, Indian dating app users take various precautions before meeting their digital matches for the first time in the real world, said a new study ahead of Valentine's Day. The research by cybersecurity company Avast showed that six out of 10 who use online dating apps or websites searched -- on Google or social media -- someone that they matched with on a dating app. Of this group, 40 per cent of them decided not to meet the person based on what they found online or because they could not find anything, showed the findings released on Friday. The motivation for why those who used online dating in India searched for the person they were going to meet varied from wanting to learn more about their match, verifying the person was actually real, fact-checking what their match told them about themselves and wanting to see how their potential date interacted on social media. Most of these users in India carried out their research on a social networking platform like Facebook, Instagram, or on search engines such as Google, Bing, or similar. Some users looked them up on a professional social network like LinkedIn or similar platform or went a step further and performed a reverse image search using the person's dating platform profile picture.

Zoom and FaceTime dates have fast become both the state-sanctioned — and the cool thing to do.
