Safety & Security
Zoosk customer service does not offer any kind of phone line or online chat, so requests for support are online available by logging in and using the Contact Us form. There are plenty of FAQs online and a free sign-up to test out the site, but to use any features, including incognito mode, you need to have signed up to a paid subscription. Zoosk puts responsibility for dating safety onto its members and clearly states that it does not routinely verify information, criminal records, or details provided by members. It does, however, offer an Online Dating Safety Tips manual for guidance about online dating safety.
Zoosk is a premium dating site and one that restricts access to its features by offering very little in the way of free service or functions. However, this might be the reason why it is one of the most successful dating apps, and most downloaded – having no spam accounts or fake profiles means that you are more likely to make genuine matches. The sign-up process itself is very simple and seems quite basic, but once you subscribe and start to use the site, the more you make use of it, the more the algorithm understands, and the more specific and relevant your matches become.
