Creating safe and trusted dating communities
Online dating is on the rise but so is falling victim to romance scams and dating fraud.
Fake profiles on dating sites are far from rare. It’s too easy to be tricked or scammed by somebody hiding behind a false online identity. As a result, identity theft, financial fraud and catfishing are rife - costing time, money and emotional distress.
Unsurprisingly, according to a study by YouGov on behalf of Yoti, 50% of people would not be confident that the personal details on someone’s dating profile were genuine.
You may have seen our short viral film Little Casanova, which puts a humorous spin on what could happen when you don’t really know who you’re talking to online.
Yoti provides a simple but powerful solution to make these issues a thing of the past:
- Daters can use the Yoti app to carry out peer-to-peer identity checks. This lets them swap personal details with the people they meet online to verify that they are who they say they are.
- Dating sites can integrate Yoti to verify their users’ identities and create safer, trusted dating environments.
