Ensure the partner is trustworthy

If you started dating online and have just been on a couple of dates do not jump the gun and start sexting. You must actually get to know your partner sufficiently before you start sexting. First, develop a proper rapport try to observe their online behavior, etc. Do not start trusting someone you hardly met a couple of times without really knowing them well enough. Once you feel comfortable enough with them and have developed adequate trust you can consider sexting them.

Conceal certain aspects

It is always best to avoid showing your face if you intend to send very racy pictures of yourself. Do not try to blur the face as there is a whole lot of software tools in the market that can be used to remove blurred images. If you have a tattoo or body piercings etc. do not display it. There is a risk of being identified from it.

Remove all technical details

For those that want to remain completely anonymous, ensure the devices you use do not share details like location and other personal data. For Windows users, there is the option to remove metadata so that no personal details are shared. Ask for technical help if you cannot delete the data yourself. 

Delete sent messages

While there is the option of deleting sent messages and photographs do not depend on that as a factor. If someone manages to get a screenshot of the message or photo your privacy will still be compromised. You must only exchange such texts with someone you fully trust and are sure it will not be leaked in any manner.

Be wary of devices connected to your smartphone

With most of our smartphones connected to a variety of electronic devices like tablets and laptops, there is always the risk of someone accessing texts or photos on the other device. When sending such texts or messages ensure these will not be accessible on other devices at home or your workplace.
