If using an online dating service is your thing, California authorities are taking steps to make it safer for you.
Following an agreement with Attorney General Kamala Harris, three online dating services will screen for sex offenders and other criminals who use their sites.
eHarmony, Match.com and Spark Networks will participate.
Cary Berger is general counsel for eHarmony general counsel. He says the site has had member safety procedures in place for years.
The agreement stems from the sexual assault of a Los Angeles-area woman last August by a man she met through one of the providers.
