On Valentine's Day, love is in the air, but it comes with a warning for all lovestruck internet users. New research suggests that oversharing on online dating sites could result in more than you bargained for, opening the door to not just a date, but to scammers and cybercriminals. These days, it's quite common to look online for romantic prospects, but it turns out that many online dating site users even put highly personal and sensitive information on their public dating profiles. A quarter 25 per cent of UAE users surveyed admit to sharing their full name publicly on their dating profile; 15 per cent have shared their home address and 9 per cent posted details about their work or trade secrets, and 9 per cent have shared photos of family members. It might seem harmless and a way to quickly find a potential match, but users of online dating services are freely giving up highly personal and sensitive information without a second thought, with many making it public on their profile.

The ISPs are responsible for actually implementing the restrictions on offending websites, and the perception that Etisalat is more strict about banning websites is likely to be because there are were some areas in the Du Telecom network that have had no, or less, censorship of the internet, for example Dubai Media Zone and other TECOM areas. For the most part, internet censorship is not overly draconian in the UAE. Certainly, much less so than somewhere like China or Iran for example.
