Why Can't I Add My Phone Number or Address Directly?
Our priority at CareGuide is to maintain a safe and secure environment for all our members. This is why we have specific guidelines regarding contact information such as phone numbers and addresses on your public profile.
Canadian and American Numbers Only, With Flexibility ChildCareAdvantage.com
- Geographical Limitation: We currently accept only UK, Canadian, and American phone numbers and addresses on profiles.
- Outside the UK, Canada, or the U.S.?: If you're located elsewhere but wish to apply for jobs on platforms like CanadianNanny.ca, ElderCare.com, Sitter.com, or ChildCareAdvantage.com, use a placeholder number (e.g., 555-555-5555) during sign-up.
- Sharing Your Real Contact Info: Once you've registered, you can share your actual phone number with potential employers or clients through private messages. This flexibility allows you to control who has access to your personal information.
A Note on Paid Subscription Features
- Share Contact Information Safely: The ability to share your contact details via messages is a feature available to paid subscribers. This ensures that the exchange of such sensitive information occurs within a secure and monitored environment. Learn more.
Important Reminder: No Encoded Information
