Why must I have an Icon (Picture)?
As you know, Personal contact information is not permitted on Swirch.com. With that in mind, we believe it’s important for our members to show a little piece of themselves. Your college, favorite place, home town, hobby, pet, dream car, etc. Note* Keep it clean. Anything other than G-rated will cost you your membership and privileges.
Most people have pictures of their favorite things. If not, Google or search “Pictures of” and your favorite thing. Choose one, Right click, Copy to, and remember where you store it. Then browse and download when prompted. Relax – you can always change it later. Simple!
How can I be sure the person I'm contacting or contacting me is legitimate?
As with contact from or to ANYONE over the internet (I.E. - internet dating, social media, etc.) be smart and use extreme caution. Legitimate contacts will provide information you can and should check before releasing ANY information. Slow it down, take your time, and ask questions that can be verified. Interviews scheduled during the day and in public areas are always best. If, for some reason, you discover you’ve been contacted by someone representing themselves dishonestly, LET US KNOW IMMEDIATELY.
