How Do I Report Someone on Upward Dating (Answered)

Upward Dating Fake profiles now try to outnumber the real ones on the dating platform. It’s a fact of life that most of us have come to terms with and usually recognize and ignore the moment we see them. Members know they should report them and get them removed but most of the users don’t. For those new to dating apps, this tutorial will walk you through how to report someone or a fake account on Upward Dating. I’ll also provide some pointers on how to spot the fakes in the first place.

Upward Dating has come a long way since those early days. It is still full of fakes but the catfish are slowly being removed thanks to verification. Along with more human moderation, Upward Dating is working to clean up the app significantly. There are still a ton of fakes on there though and it seems they will be a problem for a long time yet.

How to Report Someone on Upward Datin

Some members ever seem to bother reporting the fakes they spot when swiping but will report them if they begin interacting with the faker. Upward Dating has made it as simple as possible to report those fake accounts and uses human moderators to help keep the app as clean as practically possible.

There are two main ways to report someone on Upward Dating. One, from an obviously fake profile in your stack and two from within a conversation if you matched and are chatting.

If you have the patience, you can report any fake profiles you come across within the app. This does help the community and improve it for everyone but there are so many fake profiles on the app that most of us don’t bother. If you want to be better than that, here’s how to do it.

To report a fake account/profile:

1. Visit the Upward Dating website and sign in to your account if you’re not already logged in.

2. Scroll to the bottom of the profile and select Block and Report.

3. Select a reason and add any supplementary information if required.

4. Select Submit Report.

Upward Dating will then investigate, check out the profile and take the action they deem necessary. You can also send related questions, comments, or feedback to

How to Report Someone Within Chat

If you connected with someone and later found out they were a faker, you can still report them from within a conversation.

1. Open the conversation within Upward Dating.

2. Select the three-dot menu icon and select Block and Report.

3. Choose a reason and add any supplementary information if required.

4. Click on Select Submit Report.

The Upward Dating moderators should read your report, check out the profile, and ban or not depending on what they find.

How to Spot a Fake Upward Dating Profile

Some fake profiles are very easy to spot. Some not so much. Most of the jerks on the site cannot be bothered to put together a decent profile so you should be able to spot those a mile away. Others are more sophisticated but can still be spotted.

Here are some signs you’re looking at a fake dating profile.

Using Photos of a Popular Figure

If an Upward Dating profile photo looks too good to be true, it might be. If it doesn’t have a blue verified tick next to it, you may be looking at photos taken from the internet. If there is a single picture, that’s not a good sign as every member is encouraged to add multiple pictures. If it looks like a photo shoot, it might be.

It’s difficult to check but you can take a screenshot and then perform a reverse picture search. It isn’t perfect but can give you an idea of whether the person is real or not.

Empty profile

Everyone who is serious about dating apps knows that a profile has to be the best it can possibly be. If you’re looking at a barely completed one, it’s either a fake or posted by someone too lazy to care. Either way, it isn’t worth looking any further.

Odd messages

If you receive messages that don’t seem to make sense, you might be talking to a bot. You may also be talking to someone for whom English is not their native language so don’t be too quick to judge. However, combined with some of these other signs, they may be part of a fake Upward Dating profile.

If you receive odd responses or some that are completely out of context to the discussion, be on your guard.

Unpopular Social Network Coverage

Any dating account with little or no Twitter followers, and Facebook friends is unlikely to be real. Even the most introverted person will have more than that. Again, like odd messages, on their own, this does not mean the profile is definitely fake. Combined with other signs, it definitely could be fake. Widen your search and see what else the person has mentioned about them online.

Claiming to a Professional or Rich

I’m sure some rich or famous people will use Upward Dating. I would imagine they actually have people who will use Upward Dating for them but most would use private agencies if they needed the help. If someone says they are famous or incredibly rich, they might be. They also might not be so keep your eyes open going forward.

Apparently, doctorates are one of the most-lied about qualifications online so don’t take these claims at face value either.

Fake dating accounts are not unique to Upward Dating. Currently, Upward Dating seems to be doing more to combat them than now than some other dating platforms. They are a fact of life though and everyone should be aware of their popularity and the risks involved in interacting with them. At least now you have a better idea of how to spot a fake and how to report them on Upward Dating.

Upward Dating Match Disappeared

If you are having trouble locating a connection it could be that your match has deleted their account or has been blocked on Upward Dating. Some deleted accounts will still remain in your conversations list as “Deleted user” for a short period of time. The duration varies based on a variety of factors
