Frequently Asked Questions

What is Legitifi?

Legitifi is a one of a kind Application allowing people to use their phone to qualify everyone they meet. Our unique platform helps ensure safe, honest and accurate social interactions. Legitifi compiles the Social Media profiles of our users to provide the necessary information to make a decision if the user is Legit; thus, putting users in the driver’s seat to validate who they are meeting.

How does Legitifi work?

Legitifi uses a proprietary platform and displays a unique profile for each user and about the user’s identity.

Why would people choose to opt-in to Legitifi?

The meteoric rise of social media and the sharing economy means that we are interacting with people we find online – virtual strangers – on a daily basis. The importance of understanding more about the people we are making connections with – sometimes intimately – cannot be minimized. Who are they really, and can you trust them?

First-party, authorized data is the key to getting the real story about someone, in real-time. Second- or third-party data, such as that given by big data aggregators like Intelius, pull from public records that are often extremely out of date and inaccurate. If you’ve ever Googled yourself, you know this – and there is nothing you can do to update or change the results. When someone opts in to Legitifi, they are giving their permission and making the most accurate information available.

If you are looking to put your trust in someone – be it for a date, childcare, in-home hospice care or a similar situation, should they really be hiding who they are from you? Asking someone to sign up for Legitifi is non-invasive, super simple and takes just a few seconds – no surprises, nothing to hide.

Who helps Legitifi with data?

Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Tinder, Twitter, Google and The National Sex Offender Registry.
