Popular dating site Match.com is going to start screening its members against the national sex offender registry, following a suit from a woman who claims she was raped by a person she met through the service. The woman has since filed a lawsuit against the dating site, stipulating that the company should check members’ names against public sex offender registries in order to increase safety.

However, Match.com is taking things a step further and has announced they plan to screen all members against the national sex offender registry. The decision follows a lawsuit filed against the service by a woman who claims she was raped by a man she met through the dating site.

The man in question had six convictions for sexual battery on his criminal record. Details of the criminal lawsuit aside, the woman claims that Match.com could have done a better job making sure that violent criminals and sex offenders are kept out of its database – or at least flagged as such. She notes that had the screening process been in place, he would never have made it onto the site in the first place, and had the information of his criminal history been available, she would never have gone out with him.

Match.com has announced that they plan on screening members to see if they have a history of sexual assault.

Despite the increased safety measures, which should go into effect in the next few months, a rep for the site still warned that while “these checks may help in certain instances, they remain highly flawed, and it is critical that this effort does not provide a false sense of security to our members.”
