I subscribed to Secret Affairs UK and would like to delete my account. I have Googled how, but can’t find a solution for removing my profile. Any ideas, please? John, Middlesbrough

Although potential scammers lurk across many kinds of dating sites, and not just ones geared towards extramarital activity, it’s important to be aware of these potential pitfalls before handing over any money – either to the site itself or another user.

The only current way to delete an account on Secret Affairs is under the site’s Customer Support menu, where users are forced to fill out a form asking for their account and profile to be deactivated. A Secret Affairs representative told me user profiles are usually taken down within seven days after deletion was requested, and suggested any users experiencing difficulty call the company’s support number: 03330307165.

While you’re waiting for your profile to be taken down, it’s probably a good idea to remove any identifiable photos of yourself and information from your profile. You’ll be able to do this under the Edit Profile menu.

The science behind why your online dating advances are being rejected

It goes without saying, but never share any financial information or personal details like your address or full real name in your profile or in messages, as criminals could use the information to extort cash from you. Likewise, don’t be tempted to share any intimate pictures or videos with strangers who may try and use them against you in the future.

If possible, use a separate set of photos for your dating profiles than on your social media accounts: it makes it easier to identify you. Also, check the privacy settings on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media profiles to lower the likelihood of someone being able to find you.
