What guarantees someone hasn’t contracted an STD since their last test?

 

Nothing. Safely makes risky behavior safer. It is NOT a failsafe.

Test results indicate a person’s status at the time of the test, not necessarily their current status, so always use condoms and common sense.

The Safely App prominently displays the date the person was last tested and length of time that has elapsed since then. Safely simply provides an additional, important data point from which you can build your own risk assessment. Users must use their own judgment to assess the relative risk of each potential partner, much in the same way you do now (but with less information).
