Our Founders

We are two students from the South East of England. Afterglow was an app we created in our small student apartment alongside studying for our degrees. We had a vision; to keep our friends safe while dating. Instead of waiting for current dating apps to bring us decent and quality safety features we decided to create our own. One small idea, one small apartment and two big passions created what we have here today.

Afterglow is a safety-focused dating and wellbeing app made for students by students. Our big vision is to prevent minors, fake users and registered offenders from using dating app. 

On Afterglow, you can rest assured that every profile is a verified university student and, more importantly, a real person. Our app offers a wide variety of safety features that (as far as we are aware) no other dating app offers.
