The reality is that society still views a person with HIV or STD in a negative light. Thus, to protect its members, Positive Singles continuously add functions and policies to ensure they remain safe and discreet while online dating.
For starters, Positive Singles does not allow users who aren’t living with HIV or any STD. The website also encourages members to report any suspicious accounts (i.e. those who are claiming they contracted one) so that the moderators can immediately suspend such profiles. All these actions are done to make sure that Positive Singles remains an exclusive community.
The website also includes functions that allow members to hide their profiles (incognito browsing) and remain anonymous even while communicating. Positive Singles even offers a Quick Exit Button—it immediately redirects you to a harmless website to cover your tracks—for paying accounts.
For premium members, do not worry about the statements; the website went above and beyond by billing discreetly. Instead of "Positive Singles," your credit card statement will read "SUCCESSFULMATCH."
Lastly, PositiveSingles offers a free-to-download app available for Android and iOS users. To ensure your privacy, the app's design doesn't bear any indication that it is a platform for people living with STDs. Also, the app developers included a password lock—an added layer of protection—in case your phone gets misplaced or stolen.
