Protecting our member's privacy

We do not sell or rent any information you submit to this site.

We do not display your email address (as some other penpal sites do). The Penpal World system is set up so that you can communicate with people entirely through our site without ever revealing an email address. We do display your age, gender, and country because other members are very interested in this information and use it to select penpals. However, we do not display your birthday, and other information such as state/province, city, or relationship status is optional.

The privacy of our members is our #1 priority. While other similar pen pal websites display a lot of personal information about their members, such as their email addresses, PenPal World does not. In fact, within a member's profile, all we show is that member's age (not birthday), gender, and country. All other information, such as state/province, city, or relationship status, is optional.

We also review every new and updated profile picture before it's displayed. This allows us to filter out inappropriate ones.


Every social network website deals with the Nigerian scam. At PenPal World we deal with this issue in a very agressive way keeping our service as clean as possible. Members have the opportunity to easily report suspicious accounts with a click of their mouse. Also in the background several features are running to catch them before they can do any damage.

We also block over 100,000 fake domain email addresses (such as meantodeal.com) and temporary/disposable email addresses (such as tempmailo.org) that are commonly used by scammers.

We also do not allow new members to post comments or write to other members for the first 24 hours. PenPal World's amazing monitoring team usually catches all scammers within hours of registration. This way they can't contact anyone before their account is banned.

Getting Started

To get started with your profile, simply go and sign up and complete PenPal World's simple sign up process. We'll only ask for your email address, birthday and gender. Once you've signed up, you can start using your account right away.


You can easily cancel your membership at any time, online, 24 hours a day. There are no cancellation fees.
