Ashley Madison is one of the most popular adult dating services around. It started in 2001 as a website targeting people who were married or in relationships and looking to have a discreet affair. While Ashley Madison has remained a platform for those seeking to engage in discreet extramarital affairs, they have also expanded to serve a wider audience.
They now cater to a wider audience to include people that are interested in a variety of different types of relationships including monogamous, polyamorous, and open relationships. Expanding their target audience has allowed Ashley Madison to grow rapidly and their large user base consists of people from all around the world.
A unique aspect of the Ashley Madison app and website is their focus on privacy and discretion. In 2015 the company experienced a publicized security breech that led to a revamp and many improvements to alleviate security concerns and provide the assurance of their members’ privacy.
