Arranging Play dates
Meeting mommy friends and their children for the first time is exciting, but always take precautions and follow these guidelines to help you and your children stay safe:
Get to know someone through chat before disclosing personal information or meeting in person. We don’t conduct criminal background checks on our users, so it’s up to you to do your own research and remain cautious.
Meet for the first time in a populated, public place – never in a private or remote location, and never at your home or apartment.
Tell them who you are meeting, where you are going and when you will return. Bring your phone with you.
Be in control of your own ride. Even if the person you’re meeting volunteers to pick you up, do not get into a vehicle with someone you don’t know and trust, especially if it’s the first meeting.
Working with Businesses/Service Providers
Having all local businesses/service providers that cater to women and children listed in the MomCo App is a main benefit of the app.
It is important to note that MomCo does not conduct criminal background checks or qualify the listed businesses/service providers. Please do your own due diligence (i.e. check references, check for online presence, etc) and remain cautious.
If you find any businesses/service provider suspicious, please report it to MomCo immediately.
