An important thing to cover in any BuddyGays review is their security measures. Unfortunately, this is often skipped in other reviews, but we think this is important to know since online safety is a top priority when dating online.
All the gay men who use this site are first and foremost protected by the membership fee, which limits the communication options of free members while discouraging fake or scam accounts from creating a paid account.
Since BuddyGays uses HTTPS encryption, all information transferred through the site is safe during the entire process, meaning you won’t have to worry about someone stealing your credit card information. Like most dating sites, there are “Block” and “Report” buttons on each profile, which are nice to have but hopefully won’t be needed.
This is where the security measures end. Unlike some other sites, BuddyGays doesn’t offer any form of verification (beyond email verification), which means you’ll need to take a bit more care when meeting someone online. Fortunately, the service allows you to send photos and videos via chat, which means you can easily prove if someone is real or not before agreeing to meet up with them.
