Many local herpes groups function as both a Herpes Support Group and a Herpes Social Group.
If you want to take extra precautions to keep your herpes status private online, we recommend the following: – Create a brand new email account and username on Gmail or Yahoo that does not use your real name or any other words that too closely identify who you are.
For instance, if your real name is “Kate Frisbatch” from Los Angeles, you might create a new email account such as “[email protected]* and your username might be “K818 Angel”.
You can also opt to block specific users from accessing your profile and content on the site.
Lastly, if you're ever thinking of leaving the site, you can easily delete your profile and all of your user-data will be permanently wiped, no questions asked.
Some users will use the private chat and messaging.
