  • Are you legit? It's a question that more and more of the sharing economy's participants are asking each other, thanks to Legitifi. The first-ever social ID verification platform, Legitifi allows users to ensure that the person on the other end of a digital connection is who they say they are -- which is of critical importance when you're about to meet a date, hire a new sitter for the kids, rent a room, or engage in any number of other interactions that start online and become face-to-face.

  • SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 23, 2017) - The team behind Legitifi, the first ever social ID verification platform, is on a mission to help others -- through its innovative technology and focus on charitable causes. The idea that doing the right thing has a positive effect on society as a whole is a core tenet of Legitifi, a company whose innovation allows users to ensure that the person on the other end of a digital connection is who they say they are. To that end, giving back was built into the corporate culture from the very beginning. The entire executive team is passionate about the concept of social responsibility, and the company donates 10 cents to its charity partners for every Legitifi profile created. The goal for the first year is to donate $1 million dollars to charity. The newest charities added to Legitifi's lineup include Indo Jax® and Thirst Project.

Legitifi, the first-ever social ID verification platform, is addressing these risks by verifying identities through the most popular social media platforms -- and it's an approach that is rapidly catching on. Launched just six weeks ago, the Legitifi app has been downloaded 50,000+ times -- a number that is growing by the hundreds each day.

  • SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 14, 2017) - Whether it's a potential date, a handyman to fix your fence, or a new babysitter to watch the kids -- we as a society are now interacting with people we find online -- virtual strangers -- on a daily basis. This begs the question: Just who are these people, really? And, more importantly, can you trust them? According to the social ID verification experts at Legitifi, aggregating information from their social profiles is one way to prove that they are who they say they are. In stark contrast to the often outdated, non-existent or inaccurate data found through aggregated 'big data' feeds, first-party authorized data is the key to getting the real story about someone in real-time.
