Scams, fake identities and catfishing: these are just some of the dangers of meeting people online. If you’re a social consumer, the Legitifi app is for you. It’s a new, one-of-a-kind app that instantly verifies and validates identities. Whether you’re going on a date with your Tinder match, hiring a baby sitter or gardener, or picking up a great deal you got on Craigslist, it pays to be safe and know who you’re meeting.

With a unique algorithm, Legitifi takes data from social media networks like Facebook, LinkedIn, Tinder, Google and Instagram to confirm a person is who they claim to be. It’s people verifying people – and it’s easy to search for someone by their name or telephone number. If someone doesn’t have a Legitifi profile – it’s easy to invite them via text, email or Facebook Messenger. What do they have to hide?

Profiles in Legitifi show a completeness meter, which is easy to read and make sense of. The more complete the profile, the more legitimate the person is. Legitifi also shares publicly available data from the national sex offenders database – flagging profiles in black and noting the user may have a criminal background.

When users opt-in to a safe and honest experience, Legitifi believes the action deserves celebration and recognition. For every Legitifi profile created, the company donates 10 cents to charitable partners.
