Is postcrossing safe?

First of all, we need to talk about the security of this service and talk about whether it is safe to participate in postcrossing.

You may be wondering if it’s safe to join the postcrossing community. That’s a good question- as you explore this new hobby, you’ll come across other members from all over the world.

The answer is that yes, it is safe to join and participate in postcrossing! There are many benefits of giving this fun hobby a try: like learning about different cultures and making friends with people from around the globe.

You will also find plenty of interesting cards and messages waiting for you on your dashboard every day! So what are you waiting for? Join today and start exploring!

I can assure you that you will not experience any problems because the developers of this service have made every effort to no personal information outside the site, so no fraudster can not use it.

The Postcrossing website is designed without any risk to you

Is Postcrossing Safe?

What exactly did the developers and administrators of this project for the safety of the participants?

  • No person can not see your address. The address will be revealed only to those people who will send you a postcard.
  • In Postcrossing, postcards are selected completely randomly among all accounts in this system, so your address is only given to a select few members who will send you a postcard. To learn more about this, see how Postcrossing works.
  • The system also uses MAPS. All maps displayed in Postcrossing are approximate and do not show the exact address. The coordinates used show the geometric center of the nearest major city you have selected in your account. The lack of accuracy is intentional, ad hoc, and intended to protect your privacy.
  • You might ask: What happens to my data that I provide when I sign up? I can quote the official source: “Your personal data stored at Postcrossing is not sold or shared with any third party. No one will have access to your data without your explicit permission, as stated in our Privacy Policy.”

I’d like you to add a little extra information from me. Your address will be shown to several project members who will send you postcards (as described above) because that is the only way to get postcards; there is no other way. 

In addition, the information you post on your profile, such as the text and your Postcrossing username, is publicly available

You can always leave out your real name; you can include your nickname from school or just a nickname or alias

So only share what you want to tell other people.

Therefore, postcrossing is safe. Hurry up and sign postcards!
