It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes a conversation on Rover may make you uncomfortable. Here are the signals you should flag a conversation as inappropriate:
- Someone suggests you pay in-person rather than through the site. Safety and security are paramount, and booking and paying through Rover is the only way to ensure your account is in line with our Terms of Service and that your booking is covered by the Rover Guarantee and 24/7 emergency support.
- Someone asks you to provide personal information. You should never feel pressured to share your full name, email or mailing address, phone number, or any other personal information before a stay is booked.
- Someone uses threatening language. Always let us know if someone’s messages make you uncomfortable.
- Someone tries to recruit you for a private pet-sitting business. Only services booked through Rover qualify for the Rover Guarantee, 24/7 emergency support, veterinary consultation access, sitter promotion tools, and more resources to help sitters build their business.
