How accessible is that stuff? As an Australian I've had to do a background check only once and that involved me requesting info from the police and then submitting papers to the effect that I've never been caught doing anything particularly interesting in my life.

Surely they don't expect people will do that for a dating site? Is there some database the site can check instead?

"The federal government has announced it will hold a summit with state governments, peak bodies and advocates in January, focusing on reforming security and verification policies on dating apps"

Maybe the system that they'll implement is someone signs up, has to submit ID and the company has to do the background check? I don't know what their laws are right now, if companies are allowed to do that.
