Ashley Madison is not your typical dating site. It was originally formed back in 2001 for people who were/are already married or attached in relationships, but are still seeking to have a discreet extramarital affair with someone. Up until now, the site still creates an environment where affairs are encouraged and not frowned upon.
Even though it has been existing for quite some time already, the site has adjusted well to the changing interests of people. It caters to a wider audience ranging from those who are interested in monogamous, polygamous, open relationships, etc. Because of its interesting twist to online dating, Ashley Madison has gained popularity and has managed to gather members from all over the world, and from all walks of life.
In 2015, Ashley Madison was rocked with a scandal. The site's database was hacked, and personal details of their members were released to the public. Despite this, they were able to rebuild their image. They have successfully addressed those security concerns and improved the protection in place.
The site has then created a safer and better environment for its members. Now, they are more committed to the privacy of their members moving forward.
